Which colour?

My boyfriend is picking up his new bike tomorrow.  I’ve decided I want a new bike too, so that we can go for rides together on the weekend.

He’s been doing some research for me, with my brief being that I want a bike that’s a little retro and comes with a basket.

The Sommer by Papillionaire is looking like my best option. Unfortunately it is expected to be out of stock until February.  At least that gives me plenty of time to decide on a colour.

I’ve knocked out red, so what do you think – black or blue?

Glebe Street Fair

How was your weekend?  We took advantage of the lovely sunny weather on Sunday and headed to the Glebe Street Fair.  As you can see below, plenty of other people had the same idea.

I bought an A3 Inner West map from Suburban Type and a large red felted wool heart ornament.

I also ordered the painting I featured in last year’s Glebe Street Fair post from Desperate Damsels.

Jacques Helleu & Chanel

This book was going to be on my Christmas wish list.  I originally saw it at Kinokuniya for around $200, but figured I could find it cheaper online.  Harry told me about Booko, a website that compares prices at bookstores within Australia and online stores that ship to Australia.  I found it at Readings in Melbourne for only $79.95, so I decided to buy it for myself now instead of waiting for Christmas.

Photographer Morten Holtum

Tonight I am sharing a selection of images from the interiors portfolio of Danish photographer Morten Holtum.

I love the use of black and white in these rooms, the wallpaper and other details.  I especially love the storage trunk halfway through and the bright pink spiral staircase at the end.

Stormy weather

It's Summer in less than a month, yet it feels more like Winter with the cold and stormy weather we’ve had in Sydney.

I’m considering pulling my coats back out for another round.
