Although titled "Nothing" these works created by Fernando Mastrangelo using sand, salt and concrete create more than nothing when viewing. HER
If you've been following my blog for a while now, you'd know that I simply adore the work of Hedi Slimane. To me his shots are timeless, edgy, breathtaking and emotive. Here he's captured one of my favourite shoots of Karlie Kloss for Vogue Japan, December 2011. HER
For a while I've been an Insta fan of Cedric Dasesson and his gorgeous photography, and I wanted to share it here with you. Each photo captures a combination of movement, stillness, breath hope and life. Such a wonderful talent. HER
I recently discovered the gorgeous designs of New Zealand brand Penney and Bennett. They capture such beautiful organic lines on stunning fabrics. Their colour selections are also rich and earthy and lovely additions to any pallette.
Black thatch linen pillowslip is simply stunning to touch and their quality of finishing is perfect. HERx
A Space To Think, designed by Ania Rosinke was a finalist in The Prix Émile Hermès 2014 competition. She has created a piece which comprises of equally natural and man made elements. The minimal straight lines combined with the organic curves sit together in perfect harmony. The use of the light timber molded into strong and confident lines softens the piece subconsciously creating the illusion of softness and comfort. My favourite part of the design is the thick timber feet, they hold both the strong lines and the organic curves. HER
I simply adore the work of Polish designer, Wiktoria Szawiel. Although the majority of the materials and design shapes she uses are simple her technique of exposing the inner details of each of these are stunning. She's captured beautiful movement and shapes suspended within each piece. I truly love this silent narration perfectly and permanently poised forever. HERx
Wawi Navarroza is a photographer and a multi-disciplinary artist. This series named Dominion is peaceful and intriguing. I love the strength of the contrasting colour pallets. I feel like each image captures a heald breath, a frozen moment amidst a flurry of fluent airy movement. HERx
Pamela Hanson's photography draws out your emotions. Upon scrolling through the selection below you feel everything from freedom, love, happiness, sensuality, joy and fun. I'm not sure why I feel this more in her work than others, I find it's one thing to enjoy and appreciate peoples work but with Hanson's photography I really crack a smile or I feel like running down a street with girlfriends with all my worries completely gone. This is so powerful and to add this type of work to your home would add to the carefree sanctuary that all of our homes should be.
I also enjoy the diversity of her work, from capturing fashion, period pieces through to celebrities she is an artist who cannot be pigeon holed or labelled. I cannot wait to see whats next. HERx
Designed by Gilles et Boissier this Paris apartment celebrates the best combination of period drama and modern classics and trends.
I love the simplicity of leaning the art against the wall rather than hanging, it is some how elegant and airy. It's also a great way of leaving it open for change, obtaining new art or changing the focal point within the room. Our favourites will often change, even our tastes, by embracing design tools like this we allow for this flow to become more fluid and even broaden our own creativity with the endless possibilities.
