Bring it on!!
We are loving chandeliers at the moment…big or small but always sparkly. We are in search of the perfect new room addition…
Creeping plants and Ivy.
Like chandeliers can make a room…ivy does the same in our books for a building. Needless to say we were quite gutted to hear that Ivy has been taken off the market as it is considered a pest….so we will be dreaming of magical ivy covered buildings from now on…
Vanity Fair November 2010.
I love Vanity Fair, but especially in summertime, when you actually have the time to laze in the sun and read the articles – its the kind of magazine you want to immerse yourself in..not just flick through pretty pictures, and you always come out feeling much more knowledgeable about the world (well I do anyway). This particular issue is a must read – the secret diaries of Marilyn Monroe. I think read this about 5 times over the long weekend…
So effortlessly summery! Perfect way to pull aside your hair at the beach, or when you can’t be bothered doing much at all with it on hot summer days. Plaits can go wrong, and can end up looking kind of geeky (think schoolgirl braids), however a loose side plait puts a little bit of a gypsy and carefree twist on it, which we quite like a lot.
The Chelsea Hotel
“It’s one of those hotels that have everything that I love so well about hotels. I love hotels to which, at four a.m., you can bring along a midget, a bear and four ladies, drag them to your room and no one cares about it at all.” – Leonard Cohen on the Chelsea Hotel
I read here recently on the NY Magazine that the iconic Chelsea Hotel in NYC has just gone up for sale. Since 1883, the building, with its signature wrought iron balconies, has been an emblematic residence of New York musicians, artists, and writers and became famous for its lenient attitude towards rent from artists trying to make it. Everyone from Arthur Miller to Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick stayed there, Bob Dylan wrote it into his lyrics, and Sid Vicious ( from the Sex Pistols) allegedly killed this then girlfriend Nancy Spungen in one of the bathrooms. With a history that reads like that…lets hope its sale doesn’t do anything to change this..
