Busy, busy...

Saturday, 27 July 2013

Sorry, it's been rather quiet on the blog recently. We have been very busy at Anzu, and I have been very busy painting the new season's collections. Starting above,

and finished on the first bit!

Piles of palettes, and copious cups of tea.. See more Anzu studio life over at Instagram, user name anzugifts

Lush and green...

Some refreshing images for a hot day..

More beautiful cakes...

Couldn't resist tempting you with some more beautiful cakes. Above the Anzu rose wedding cake hand-decorate with Swarovski crystals.

A flood of roses,

meadow cream filling,

a spring posy,

delicate sprigs of daisies and roses,

and a lavender custard, rhubarb, bee pollen crumble with edible flowers!!

Place like home

Monday, 8 July 2013

Nothing makes a place feel more like home than lots and lots of pictures and paintings. Above Bridget Bardot and Picasso in his home.

The Spades love collecting art and they always display it so well. Above and below the Spade house in Southampton.

Also love it when pictures are hung on very strong wallpaper. You don't need 'serious' art for this, as pretty much most things will look good!

Love this grouping of tropical plant paintings that Lee Radziwill had in her home.

Also love this combination of personal photographs and postcards combined with a shell collection as in India Hicks' famous Caribbean home.

Piles and piles of books..

Tuesday, 2 July 2013

It doesn't matter how big my bookcases are, I always end up with piles of books on the floor, so I love these interiors where they've used them decoratively.

The Anzu studio. Cats, books and plants make a home..

I need one (or several) of these clever almost invisible book organisers

Clearly seeped into my work... The Anzu books card.

Love this lamp
