In the Detail: Tiles

I love the detailed pattern and texture that tiles can add to a room or a hallway. Even the use of tiles in a small area can make a big impact. This post was inspired by a Victorian house renovation I saw recently, with the most beautiful hallway and fireplace tiles I just wish I could get my hands on.

I seriously love the tiles in the bottom row from Grow House Grow.

J.Crew Says Hello to London

In advance of its London flagship store opening on Regent Street in November, and to celebrate a scholarship collaboration at what is arguably London's top design school, J.Crew said hello to London at a pop-up shop in Granary Square this past weekend.

Designed to introduce the brand to Londoners, the pop-up was largely a preview of J.Crew's fall collections for women, men and crew cuts.  They all looked amazing.

Is it OK if I buy crew cuts stuff for myself? In particular, that satchel.

Unfortunately, the only merchandise they had for sale included no more than 15 different women's sweaters from the cashmere collection (£190 to £270) and hand-decorated collars they were selling for £240. I was disappointed. I guess I'll have to wait until I go home this summer, or until the Regent Street store opens in November.

Watch This: Arrested Development Season 4

First and foremost, happy Memorial Day (to my American counterparts) and happy summer bank holiday to those of us in Britain.

I think anyone who's ever watched Arrested Development was eagerly awaiting the release of this:

And yesterday, it happened.  

I don't know about you guys, but I'm loving it.  We got through the first half yesterday (it was way too beautiful outside to stay in and watch TV all day - I live in Britain, we have to take advantage), and are going to finish off the second half today.

They haven't missed a beat.  While the episodes do take on a very different formula than the original three seasons, they have been very cleverly crafted to catch you up with all of the characters, bring you to the same plot points from different points of view and sprinkle in all of the Arrested Development-isms that you've been missing oh so badly.

If you are already an AD fan, you've already started in on Season 4, I'm sure.  If you haven't, what the hell are you doing with yourself? Come on!  If you haven't yet been introduced to Arrested Development, get yourself a Netflix trial or just buy Seasons 1-3 online (trust me, money well spent) and get watching! 

On Facebook, the Arrested Development page is highlighting the best of the Bluth parties celebrating the Season 4 release.  My favourite, these loose seal cookies:

Well done, to whoever made those!

Gray Malin

Photographer Gray Malin released a new Bolivia collection yesterday,
and it's fun and wonderful.

Accoriding to his website, the collection was shot by Malin on the largest
salt flat in the world, Salar de Uyuni, where the very high colour temperature 
makes objects appear brighter than they would normally.

What is really amazing about these photographs is that they were only edited
to the extent that the ropes used to hold the llamas in place were removed -
that's it. 

Below are some of my favourites, but be sure to check out the 
whole collection over at Maison Gray.

(All images by Gray Malin - seriously, go check out his work, it's amazing).
