Love, love, love

The Mary Katrantzou for Topshop pieces were so stunning. We love them. Of course they sold out immediately, but Saffiah managed to get a piece - the rest of us in the office are so jealous!!

Bonsai treehouse

Monday, 27 February 2012

I think this Bonsai treehouse by Takanori Alba is so imaginative and original.

They say that people who work in an office with a plant always feel much happier, and how beautiful are these Bonsai trees? And it would be lovely to sit at your desk and watch the seasons pass.. Takanori Aiba's bonsai might make you daydream a little too much though!

Anzu in Quartier 206 magazine

Saturday, 25 February 2012

We are having to work in the office today even though the sun is shining, but a lovely surprise arrived in the post this morning - the Quartier 206 magazine. It really is a stunning magazine. Thank you to everyone there for the feature and the full page.
We love the clean way it is laid out, the colours and all the clothes in it too!

The lace and gowns at Valentino,

the butterflies at Vionnet,

all the turquoise sea tones on this spread and of course the Tom Ford perfume!

Possibly a slightly moody photo to start Monday morning off with, but I just think this photograph by John Slope of Chile is amazing. So atmospheric, a bit like a South American version of Rebecca. You could imagine there is a real story around this.

Show-stopping gowns and Japanese details

Wednesday, 15 February 2012

The combination of Dioresque grandness and Japanese detailing I think make Zac Posen's recent NY fashion show just amazing

Love these obi style splashes of colour on stark black gowns.


Happy Valentines Day!

Tuesday, 14 February 2012

Hope you have a lovely romantic day! The picture below is from the Holister Hovey blog, and is of her grandparents in France. We think it is such a romantic photograph, and the personal connection makes it even more special.

Don't forget!

Monday, 13 February 2012

It's not too late to send a Valentine. And nothing beats a hand-written note arriving by post. So have fun and surprise someone. Perhaps you even need to buy a few! Above is the Anzu Lovebirds card.

Meadows are a favourite theme for Anzu, so it was lovely to watch the pretty bbc programme Bees, butterflies and blooms yesterday. There is just something so magical about meadows. It was also nice in this cold, grey weather to see such flowery sunny scenes. If you like meadow style too, you could

buy these delicately painted plates from Bodie and

grow your own meadow (be sure to watch the bbc programme, which has lots of tips, or click here and apparently now is a good time to start planning!)

paint a meadow mural (lovely for a children's room or guest bedroom). Although this does work especially well if you happen to have an alpine chateau!

Or send one of the cards from our Bejewelled flowers range. Above is our Cornflowers and bees mother's day card.
