French Hanging.





With the promise of  study wrapping up in a week I've been thinking about the bare walls in my house and what I'd like to do do with them. One option is the french hanging style shown in these pics. They all look wonderfully casual and haphazard but I suspect there's a lot more skill required for this look than it appears and as I may just find out when I try it for myself...

they all look fabulous, but I have to say the last photo is my favourite - what a stunning combo! I think you're right in that the casual haphazard look is actually kind of not so easy to do... it's quite organised in that chaos. I've tried this hanging approach in our house - it is fun, but I haven't got it right yet... but I'd say definately goooo for it - loads and loads of fun, and such a great look! xo Hope you're having a great weekend.

love this look! just wish it could be done without putting so many nails in the walls ~ that's the bit that would make it hard to do, rearranging with new holes each time!! {renting!}

I love this kind of hanging! I have plans for something like this in my hallway but I've been umm-ing and ahh-ing over positioning for... well, it must be at least five years now! ;) have fun with yours - I'm sure you're much more decisive than me! Kx

Yes, I love this kind of hanging too! It's funny because last week, I started assembling all our currently unhung picture too, thinking about a wall of frames. So cool. Kellie xx ps I am getting around to the versatile blogger ... chain letter it may be, but an awards an award!

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!











Studio Space - Jodie Cunningham.

I love images from artist studios and the spaces where they work. This is the amazing studio and gorgeous work of artist Jodie Cunningham. Jodie works in so many different mediums — often recycled materials and always with attention to colour. If you love colour this space is particularly divine.




Tim Walker's Egon Schiele inspired editorial for i-D magazine.

Tim Walker's recent work for i-D magazine is recognisable instantly for its source inspiration, artist Egon Schiele. Along with stylist Jakob J they do a gorgeous job recreating Schiele's bright, but sparingly used palette and the postures his models struck. Brilliantly cast too are the models, particularly Schiele's wife and model, Edith Harms.
