    Feeling bold

    The New York home of Design Miami art director Rodman Primack, featured in AD Spain is quite a feast for the eyes, isn’t it? Crazy as it may appear, it is no simple feat to create a space with SO MUCH pattern and colour (not to speak of scale and texture!). I felt inspired to …

    Cut Out Indecision Competition

    Did you know that there are over 70 fabric choices in the Skinny laMinx shop? It’s a LOT to choose from, which can be a bit mind boggling when you’re trying to decide which fabric to choose for an upholstery project. I’ve invented a super-low-tech upholstery tool to help you make a decision. Just hold one …

    Herds in the wild

    Not long ago, I met afan in our shop, and she told me about her daughter’s home in Stockport, where they’ve used our Herds fabric in the kids’ room. The curtains look fabulous… and so does the rest of this beautiful (and super-useful eco-friendly) home. Find a Herds pillow here, fabric by the metre here, and …

    I’ve just come across the work of Kimathi Mafafo, the artist behind a series of beautiful embroideries, which were made in collaboration with the expertise of Ghanaian tailor, Mustapha Saadu. You’ll be able to see these works on the Ebony Curated stand at the Cape Town Art Fair, but if you’re not able to see …

    Colour Yum: From above

    The image above of tulip fields in Lisse, Netherlands comes from the book Overview: New Perspective of Earth by Benjamin Grant, which I discovered in an extraordinary post on Yellowtrace about arial photographs of the earth. I’ve picked out some particularly fascinatingly colourful ones to share here, but highly recommend visiting the original post on Yellowtrace  …

    Colour Yum: Flowers

    I met friends at Chart Farm last weekend, and when my photo of a rose turned out looking so oddly colourized, 50’s style (no filters, just the light), I took some of my other flower pics and dipped them in a saturated colour rinse-out, just for fun. Sometimes mixing things up is a good way …
