curious?

wallpaper in someones bathroom taken from Albertus Seba's book "A Cabinet of Natural Curiosities" - the most beautiful book ever made.


So I had this cool idea last night. I don't actually want to share it yet but it got me interested in googling 'Cabinet of natural curiosities'. Interesting images abound!
Damn the Diamonds! A few weeks ago I was reading through a book with my little neice about the earth and how it's made etc. We got on to stones and how they are formed and which ones we like and which ones are the best. Of course I went on about diamonds and I had a vision of turning her into a diamond princess. She's too clever to get finicky about that kind of thing but at the same time - whats wrong with being a diamond princess? They are a girls best friend! ;)
As are shoes! These are Charlotte Dellals. Cool picture.

BANGLE

Above from Jak&Jil and below from Garance. How COOL are their bangles! Everyone loves a bit of animal in their jewellery.

Everyone can be fabulous!

After watching another fabulous episode of 'the Rachel zoe' project I'm thinking non-stop 'anyone can be fabulous. It's all in your attitude. Work it!'

insanenessssssssss


How redonkulous is this ring!? It's a shallow emerald cut with two half moon cut diamonds.

My friend introduced me to Peridot. LOVE the greeen



I've had a few people asking me to help them design engagement rings. These are to help with a few ideas I have. Hopefully one day I can share some finished products!

Love emerald cut and sapphires. Why not combine the two?




Beeeautiful!

Obsessions

glasshouses! check out the glashouses on this website
grassy driveways, love the feeling of hot and cold on my soles of my feet.




natural wood furniture


grass driveways!

a dreamy greenhouse...more glass but still dreamy!
I bought tons of this gorgeous silk fabric when I was in Bali with the grand plans of getting either an insane dress made or a fabulous pair of pants and a smoking jacket. So I've been looking out for THE perfect dress, the sexiest smoking jacket and I have about a million tear outs of big silk trousers. Which will it be?
I've just started reading Atonement, in which, if you haven't read it, is beautifully written by the way, I cannot stop thinking about the dammned green dress scene. That dress steals the scene. Hmmmm...the perfect dress. Does it really exist?

a day of sighs***

Love a good cane chair!
I used to see Kate Moss in all the mags and papers when I lived in London and I got sick of her. Overrated. Love these new pictures of her though. So KATE MOSS.



O.M.G. O.M.G - I KNOW it's Diana's ring and that it's been around forever, I don't care. I'm having a love affair with that sapphire! LOOK AT IT!

Stop it! This dress is DIVINE!

And this dress is super cute!
