It was so nice to see Tina’s Copenhagen apartment and her gorgeous Moroccan wedding blanket on her bed that I suspect she got while living in Morocco. Pretty!

NEW: 91 Magazine

Hello again! Yes, I know I’m supposed to be on vacation but I heard about 91 Magazine for the first time last week and haven’t seen it much in blogland so I want to give it a huge shout out and encourage everyone to check it out while I’m away…

NEW: 91 Magazine

It’s a pretty and creative online magazine out of the UK that you I’m sure you’ll fancy. Produced quarterly and published by the lovely blogger and shop owner Caroline Taylor behind Patchwork Harmony, the newly launched 91 Magazine is a collection of inspirational people, places and things that share a love of handmade, craft and vintage styles along with independent designers, store owners and artisans. Here is a glimpse into the magazine, the rest you can find here.

NEW: 91 Magazine

How fun is the wallpaper? I love those gray drapes and that wicker suitcase beneath the bed, too.

NEW: 91 Magazine

Ohhhh a gray wooden cabinet, natural wood table and white chairs… a girl after my own heart. This is the theme I’m using currently in my home – gray/white/natural. I’m a BIG fan of this look.

NEW: 91 Magazine

Fun student style using vintage fabrics and IKEA bedding. So pretty!!!

NEW: 91 Magazine

Such a great arrangement but even more, that wallpaper from Anthropologie is unstated elegance all the way, isn’t it? It’s there but it’s also sort of not. Do you know what I mean? I love wallpaper like that.

NEW: 91 Magazine

Great workspace, especially the smart storage solution utilizing a closet. This photo above is from the gorgeous new book from fab design author Caroline Clifton-Mogg called A Space Of My Own published by Ryland, Peters & Small. It’s a lovely book with an excerpt included in 91 Magazine so you can see more of it there.

In addition to the magazine, Patchwork Harmony also has an online shop AND I spotted some links that I have to show you from the mag as well – you can’t miss them!

Enjoy! See you again with a few more blog posts for this week then I’m off until Monday. Hugs, xo Holly

Sweet Ideas By Sweet Paul

I know, I know. I must be the last blogger in the universe to write about crafter and blogger Paul Lowe’s most recent issue of Sweet Paul. It’s not that I live under a rock — I’ve been following the praises echoing through the blog circuit for weeks and read it cover to cover the moment he sent me a link when it went live. Oh yes, I know Sweet Paul. Who doesn’t these days!?

Sweet Paul

Paul so nicely sent a printed version of this issue and it arrived with a loud thud through my door which meant nothing but good things, and lots of them, could be expected in this jam-packed issue. I found it completely exciting to flip through Sweet Paul with my bare hands as I compared how the digital version stood against the print, deciding which came up the winner and honestly…. My verdict is, I still adore Sweet Paul and all his digital radiance. Even after indulging in the print version, I love how the light emitting from my mac gives his gorgeous images an almost angelic glow and I like that I can bring it with me anywhere on my iPad to show my friends. I thought I’d share a few spreads from it that I found inspiring. What about you, print or digital when it comes to e-mags that you first fell in love with online? Preferences, c’mon, anyone?

Thuss+Farrell: Inspired Weddings and Other Beautiful Bits

I’ve been a fan of stylist Rebecca Thuss for eons and was thrilled when she posted on her company Facebook page about her recent project – a book!  She worked on it with her husband and it looks super inspirational! Rebecca (Thuss) and Patrick (Farrell) make up Thuss+Farrell, the dynamic duo who product gorgeous things together for mostly print from advertising to magazine work. They most recently styled and photographed Matthew Robbins’ upcoming book called Inspired Weddings and I can’t wait to get my hands on this hot little number. For now, here’s a peek into a few of the spreads.

Thuss+Farrell

I love their still life work, it’s so magical! Whenever I look at their many projects, I feel a tidal wave of creativity wash over me and I want to run out and decorate and make stuff! Here are some photos from their client work that are favorites of mine. See if any of these take your breath away too.

It is so energizing to be around creative people, even if only on the internet for a brief moment to view an uplifting portfolio like that of Thuss+Farrell. What a dream team they are and I cannot wait to buy that book and I’m already married but who cares…Swoooooon!
