The colours of Peru

Thursday, 18 December 2014


Whilst in Peru, I visited this amazing market. The colours and patterns were just stunning. I loved all the traditional embroidery.


The little girls were in these beautiful traditional outfits.


How chic is this little girl?






Whilst there, I bought some pigment. The pink and turquoise were incredibly vivid. Far more than you can see in the photo.



Even the colours of the vegetable stands looked great!

Rural idyll

Thursday, 21 August 2014



Always find agricultural shows such fun and inspiring too. Here's some little snapshots of one I went to recently. Meadow flowers,



innovative flower arrangements (loved this mock picnic box),


giant cabbages


prize winning dahlias,


and snuggling pigs.




African prints

Tuesday, 5 August 2014


I was really inspired by the African festival in Shoreditch recently. Really great to see African prints styled and used in such a modern way.


Loved these streamers that were strung across the avenue.







So many inspiringly dressed people too! The clothes designer Soboye pictured above left also has a shop click here to see more

Mexican flowers

Sunny days, armfuls of flowers and lovely Mexican embroideries. Have a great day! Above Anzu's Otomi flower cards

















Braziiillll!!

Friday, 6 June 2014


The World cup is not far away, and if like me  you are planning on football parties but are not into 'football decor!' why not turn your house into a tropical Brazilian paradise for the duration of the cup


Think beach style and rig up a gorgeous lounge area in your sitting room. With overlapping rugs and lots of loungy cushions for people to crash out on.




Think of the colours of a Brazilian street and you can't go wrong. These streamers would also work a treat too


Then pile it up with lots of plants and palms. I love this outside seating area as photographed by Brazilian photographer, Tuca


Even just one will give that holiday feel. Isn't this room gorgeous?


Throw in a hammock for good measure



Then turn on the large screen tv, mix up some Caipirinhas (recipe here) and put on some crazy samba music (link here) and you're good to go! (Anzu illustration above)

Roses and champagne

Monday, 19 May 2014

Wedding season is well underway. We love the Anzu wedding card above, hand-decorated with Swarovski crystals and some of the beautiful table settings we've seen, but who says they have to just be for weddings?


Magical lanterns hanging from branches,


candle light and cymbidium orchids,


silverware and intense purple flowers,


yellow roses and treats,


rose garlands and champagne coupes,


grey feathers, creamy ceramics, and dusky pink roses.
