Beauty and terror
Just keep going

"Nostalgic, retro and innovative"

Loving this entire collection of Italian designer Stella Jean. The photography and styling is stellar too. So much more to see here.

This excerpt from Perfume has been lingering in my head all week. 

"She was indeed a girl of exquisite beauty. She was one of those languid women made of dark honey, smooth and sweet and terribly sticky, who take control of a room with a syrupy gesture, a toss of the hair, a single slow whiplash of the eyes—and all the while remain as still as the center of a hurricane, apparently unaware of the force of gravity by which they irresistibly attract to themselves the yearnings and the souls of both men and women."

Lady Luxe

If you know anything about me, it’s that I have a insanely keen sense of smell and love a glamorous shoot. Especially on a velvet tufted couch. Ogle, like I did, Lucinda Chambers’ “Lady Luxe” for British Vogue’s March 2012 issue.The set has got me dreaming in modern chinoiserie.

See more here! It’s worth it.

"The Happiness Hypothesis"

"There is a state many people value even more than chocolate after sex, it is the state of total immersion in a task that is challenging yet closely matched to one’s ability. It is what people call being in the zone. Flow. Flow happens and you go with it. Flow can happen during solitary creative activities. The keys to flow: 

  • clear challenge that fully engages your attention
  • you have the skills to meet the challenge
  • and you get immediate feedback about how you are doing at each step

The elephant (automatic processes) and writer are in perfect harmony. 

An excerpt from The Happiness Hypothesis Anthony just read to me after remembering how much I love to write.

Paris…s’il vout plait.

Epitome of Parisian chic. This dining room is full of character. Period. It’s inviting and stylish from the floor to the built-ins (architectural details…sigh). And the two-sided fireplace and narrow pocket doors are so typically Parisian. And I just love lamps- everywhere. So what if this Toronto townhouse is a whopping $4.5 million? These classic elements can be easily replicated in your place too. Pass those croissants.

See the whole townhouse at Torontolife.com

Fancy prints, lush setting, impeccable styling.  Dying over this fashion video by Sofia Coppola for Marni at H&M. I don’t know who Marni is either but judging by the :20 second mark, the lady knows poolside. Isn’t candlelight magical…

Stylists Lucinda Chambers and Michelle Rafferty take the reigns here. Love the jewellery and that hat at 1:47 and the mix of patterns. Ah, I can feel the summer glow on my skin.
