Celestial objects

Celestial objects is both an interiors shot and a tranquil Instagram feed. I’m intrigued by this art installation they posted recently; these baskets must be huge. Part of me wonders if it looks better in an image (ie the photograph allows you to appreciate the relationship between the spaces and also the delicate plasterwork) than in real life, but I’d still like to see it to tell.

Print it, hang it

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.

Gorgeous

How luxurious are these fantastically vampish sketches by Helleu?

This is absolutely the ideal of beauty between 1900 and 1914 and I feel I could seriously get behind it…

The art of an interview

That’s when I would find out that yes, they did get their PhD in physics, back when women were barely allowed in college, and as a matter of fact, it was them who single-handedly oversaw the Capitol renovation, and technically they do they an individual birthday party for every single person in the city every year, but they have so much help, you know? Besides, everybody loves a birthday, and it’s just no trouble at all to throw one.

Inspiring tales from Kelly Williams Brown, who’s also written a long-form essay on the rodeo queens (even harder work than the beauty queen circuit), and a spot-on spoof of House of Cards.

I like these women best though – this is how my school raised us to be.
