want list :: olympia le tan.

Those daily Net-a-Porter emails in my inbox are both an amazing thing, and a very bad thing. Every piece is so perfect, but ridiculously expensive – the kind of items I would actually be saving my entire life for.

I don’t even remember the first time I saw one of Olympia Le Tan‘s old-timey clutch creations, but I know what I thought. It was along the lines of, “why the hell didn’t I think of this first”. And then I wanted to do it for myself. And then I realised that was virtually impossible.

If I didn’t suffer from the type of boredom that debilitated me and didn’t allow me to do ANYTHING, maybe I could. But unfortunately I do. That’s why I have to save up my millions forever instead.

a navy wall or two.

I feel like dark wall colours used to to taboo, or were only used for little boy’s bedrooms, with spaceships and planets dotted throughout. Now it’s all the rage.

Have your simple wooden dining table, of course with a vase of flowers on top, and a navy wall in the background. Style. We can all be in Real Living mag if we follow those simple steps.

I’m not trying to pay it out though, I love it, and would happily do it myself. I picture one day getting all cosy in winter in my dark room with a fire going. Hot chocolate, soups and blankets galore.

woolly season.

I know these shots were all taken on the other side of the world, where it is technically spring, but they are perfect for right here, right now. It is getting cold everybody. Warning.

At least there are many beautiful and bright warm things around. Jumpers, coats, beanies galore. And these ones bring a bit more fun to the dull.

inspiration wall :: april.

Autumn has started to show its true colours with some crazy weather patterns. Today is one of those days where you just need to stay in bed, watch movies and listen to the rain. Even though I feel like I should be doing something – constant battle. So here is my productivity for the day:

april inspiration

- Vegan Chocolate Mousse. It may not be warm, but it is a massive comfort food and I basically want to live off this stuff all winter long.
- This Chloe lookbook from RUSSH features all the colours of summer I’m still dreaming about.
- Magical wallpaper creations by Sarah Ellison. It’s people like her that make me truly feel unproductive and lazy. They’re basically my life inspiration.
- Peter Jensen perfect fashion and pretty shoes.
- What would it be like to live in a houseboat? I imagine it would be the ultimate on a day like today.

friends of green.

The inventor of these space-saving, green-loving lights really is a genius. It’s like something out of Alice in Wonderland, or a sci-fi movie – who thinks of these things in real life?

Hanging plants are all the hipster rage, just wait til they get their hands on these babies. They will literally froth.

And so I’ve heard, having a plant around is always good for that feng shui.

real beauties.

Some Pinterest finds for your lovely brains. Too much to handle. Especially if you browse through the Gorman page. I had to stop myself – too much inspiration, too little time. Such a strange problem to have.

I bring before you some pretty sexy interiors, as I intently watch The Block.

model muse :: claudia schiffer.

Claudia Schiffer is who I picture as the 90′s version of Brigitte Bardot. Reincarnation you may call it.

I was first introduced to her beauty at a young age, through a workout VHS. Claudia herself was the exercise model and fitness guru. To be honest, I don’t know why anyone would ever let a model create a workout series – no matter how hard we try, those workouts aren’t going to give us their perfection. So maybe keep your young daughters away for a few years.

But Claudia is a ridiculously great role model in other ways – the model who didn’t even like the taste of alcohol.

If there is one thing we can learn from her, it’s that shyness has its place, and just because you’re quiet, doesn’t mean you won’t be successful. Simmer down everyone and take a leaf out of her book.
