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!

GUCCI in Auckland.

Walking up the main street of Auckland this summer I was not expecting to see each side of the road wall to wall with international luxury fashion brands. It's not that Auckland isn't fashionable — to the contrary the country is full of it's own authentic, edgy fashion and creativity (a friend puts this down to the cool temperatures and the crappy television) — it's just that this kind of distinctly European traditional luxury seemed a strange fit. Then a local explained that when the cruise liners dock in the harbour the first thing the tourists see coming off the ship are the bright glossy brands beckoning. Maybe some can afford the $3000 price tags for these dresses? Regardless I love Michel Alessandro and there was no keeping me out of GUCCI, getting to see his work live and in captivity. Clearly I was not their most hoped for customer but the Gucci staff were laid back and fun and allowed me to take these photos as well as giving me a catalogue — sealed in envelo…

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!











Zombies Hate Stuff.

Day nine since the first Intragram infusion and still feeling like I've done ten rounds in the ring. Today got sick of all the net surfing from bed and persuaded C to take me out to The National Portrait Gallery even though he had taken the day off to organise various household things that needed organising. I was too unwell to actually roam the exhibitions but we had a coffee in the cafe and then took on the book shop which has to be the best arts book shop I've encountered. Heaps of brilliant books were added to my wish list but it's this novelty one that really lit my day up - Zombies Hate Stuff. Who knew? According to the author Greg Stones zombies hate all kinds of things. They're pretty disgruntled types but what they particularly hate is kittens, clowns, weddings, sharing, re-gifting and war re-enacters. They also hate...
Disrespect.
Hippies and...

Mannequins (and regifting).
