Selina Lake: Updated Portfolio

When London stylist and author Selina Lake contacts me I know I’m in for a treat. Yesterday was no different when she wrote in to share her new work. I immediately clicked over to her online portfolio and found these beautiful spaces, the first photo shows the fabulous Kusmi tea. You know, I’m so happy that tea is becoming a bit more trendy lately at least in America because I’ve grown to really love it and though I’m not about to fully cross over (I still enjoy a cappuccino or espresso and iced coffee in the summer), I can’t deny that tea has taken over as a new obsession of mine. Part of the appeal aside from being healthy is that you can find so many flavors and of course the pretty tins… you can leave your tea on the counter and perhaps it will look this lovely…

If you need a reminder of who Selina is, here’s a link to her new book Bazaar Style that I wrote about on decor8. It’s still a favorite decorating book of mine, top 10 actually! If you don’t own it and love bohemian, eclectic, flea market style then you’ll have to add it to your list because trust me, it’s a keeper.

Psst: I had an interview with Selina exactly one year ago here (the photos are also worth clicking over for, wow!)

Thanks Selina for the updates!

New: Two Days in July

You know how much I love collaborative projects so here’s yet another talented duo joining forces to challenge themselves and inspire others. Are you familiar with the work of Sarah Ahearn Bellemare (painter) and Kate Stavish (poet) and their new project called Two Days in July? They aren’t saying much about it (which makes me more excited) but tomorrow their ideas will be set free here on their new blog. All I’m hearing is that this is a, “new collaboration of paintings and poems.” I’m super curious to see what they’ve come up with. I’m sure we can expect something great!

Be sure to bookmark this link and visit these ladies tomorrow to see what they have in store! Congrats Sarah and Kate!

What do you think of collaborative projects? Have you ever had an interest in teaming up with a friend? If so, what would you be interested in doing?
