Today I love… Perfect Palm Trees

Maybe its the sunshine going to my head, but I’m daydreaming about living a bohemian lifestyle even more than usual lately. Bedroom that opens onto the beach, linens and a surfboard propped in the corner, and beads in my hair. Don’t tell me you aren’t tempted too.

Palm tree cushions tick the subtle box in a simple scandinavian interior.

Cant help but think that this is a terrible waste of good surfboards, but it sure looks pretty.

Bold and beautiful. Love the artwork too.

Today I love… Geometry

Like most academic creatives (yes, that is a thing!) I do get alot of satisfaction out of sharp crisp lines and straight edges. And today I am really loving the use of geometry in a creative setting (because no one likes it in the maths setting). What do you love today??

Trend Spotting: Ironic Art on huge scales

I moved into a new flat a couple of months ago that is twice the size of my last one (thank you London crowding!) which isnt a bad thing. But now all my framed art looks really out of scale with the space, which is worsened by the double height living room (yes, I’m bragging a bit).

So I’ve been on the hunt for a whole new art collection. I know; poor me! I want something witty, that people look at and smile to themselves or suppress a snigger. I think this one may be a little too brash though…or is it?!

Your turn. Do you have any statement art? I’d love to hear about it

Spotted: Beautiful Architecture pops up in the oddest of places

A few stumbles away from Pacha and a bar that sells 2 huge beers for 5euros, is this stunning bit of architecture – the Templo Ecumencio de San Salvador. I love that an area so engineered to tacky bars and nights out can invest so much in a religious building. So Saturday night drinkers can go and repent their sins when the sun comes up…
