Beauty in simplicity: Contemporary quilt by Ineke Poort (Netherlands): voor Joost 18 jaar, 1994

 

When I haven’t been thinking about finishing a PhD and having a baby (most likely to take place in the same month/week), the above have occupied my mind: paintings by Emily Ferretti (top, and fourth from top), Erdem Pre-Fall 2013, the Acne Piers bag, the need for a new Bolivian manta (to upholster our bedhead), a print like this for the nursery and the quilts of Inneke Poort. Apologies for the length of time between drinks/posts. HF.

The Apartment

 

 

Yes, we alerted you to the perfectly curated range of goods from The Apartment, Denmark, last month. But I couldn’t not post these images once I’d come across them on Jelanie’s blog. I’ve taken to thinking of such interiors as mantels writ large, as they’re designed with a pared back aesthetic to allow interesting art and textural objects to shine. If I could get rid of a few hundred objects in my home, I might be on my way to a mantel, but for the moment I’m living in more of a shrine… HF.
