I have never been an adherent of the simple white T and jeans look (I like colour; I need something to give me he illusion of a waist) but Girls On Top tees might change that for me.
How great to have a day pretending you were a mighty film maker just by wearing one of these…and way cooler than a band shirt.
Plus these ones have colour…
I don’t think it’s going to be breaking news that I’m a maximalist by taste, and so I very much agreed with this article’s advice on how to hang art

A perfect little microcosm. Eric Ravilious “The Village” (1933)
As part 361 of my ongoing rant about how art and decoration don’t need to be expensive, fancy or hard to find to look wonderful, I bring forward more witnesses for my cause. First up:
these two scribble pieces, one from @jyoungdesignhouse and one from Danielle Moss of “The Everyday Girl”. I imagine they’d be quite satisfying to recreate.
Next up, again by @jyoungdesignhouse, I like these easy ways to add punk to a bit of regency art. I could see it being easy to add a splash of acrylic to a postcard bought on holiday, and then you could either clip it up, put it on the fridge, or carry the joke on and frame it in the biggest ornate frame you can buy. It reminds me a bit of this simple but effective series too.
And lastly, from @nicoledavisinteriors, this corner of family photos. Although the style is way preppier than I’d go for myself, I like the reminder of making something special out of an otherwise empty corner. It also reminds me of my favourite Cup of Jo house tour with the red frames.
Another top graphic from the google team, this one of India’s first female doctor.
Excuse the poor quality of these photos, but I literally snapped them directly from my copy of Elle Deco. Loving the wild wallpaper, jade green hall, mix of rattan and willow-weave textures in the furniture and just the simple yet bold look of this home.
I’ve banged on enough times here before about how easy it is to have things on the walls of your house – postcards, photocopies, bits of music – but I really love how House and Garden UK is now getting on the bandwagon with downloadable, printable artwork. This set is quirky and understated, although I also loooooove the wallpaper.
Loving this jewellery by Charlotte Chesnais that seems to arabesque round the wearer.
