How gorgeous is this house in East Sussex? I think it’s quite a favourite amongst homes magazines. You can see it’s entire fabulousness on Light Locations. In fact I am pretty sure that the gorgeous pin up girl in picture 3 is what inspired me to go and find my own J.H Lynch art work (My Own Honey Rider), a few years back. Do I want to hire it? More like move into it!
I found this gorgeous copy of October 1974 Vogue at a vintage fair this weekend – with sequinned peasant-esque dresses, it’s not difficult to see where inspiration for SS15 came from?

I’m not entirely sure where these images originate from but I got them from interior junkie. However since it’s written in dutch I’m still none the wiser. The graphic prints and practical living all spells Scandinavian living but I could be wrong. Either way…love it!
Totally in love with Massimo Dutti’s apres ski collection. But with the weather almost balmy in the UK, it might require a real visit to the slopes – what a shame! Next stop…. Verbier!
