Sarah of Coco Lapine recently styled this apartment for Fantastic Frank in collaboration with Berlin based deisgn company Llot Llov. I love how she has playfully arranged these knitted Ray lamps (which come with a 12m flex) in lots of different ways to create focal points throughout the apartment - a quick and easy way of adding interest to a space.
One of the greatest pleasures I have in writing this blog is uncovering the stories of people who are working to keep the age old skills and industries of their local towns and communities alive and, by applying fresh, new design ideas, helping to breathe new life into them.
Growing up in a town famous for its traditional weaving skills, brother and sister team Sarah and Lorcan from Northern Ireland had the perfect platform from which to launch their textile company Enrich and Endure.

Yesterday, to my excitement and joy, I managed to get hold of one of the few remaining pairs of Dune Jolene slides - the Isabel Marant inspired sandals that all the fashion bloggers seem to have been snapping up this season.
Perfect for both pool side and getting around town in equal measure, slides are apparently this summer's 'it' shoes. Birkenstocks are also back, although for some of us they never really went away. This is one trend that I am happily on board with.
Can we all just take a moment to rejoice in the fact that fashion editors are for once telling us to buy shoes we can actually do stuff in. You know, the kind of practical things busy real women actually do every day, like popping to the shops, or taking the dog out for a walk.
Here are 10 pairs you might like.

This week as part of my guest edit for The White Company I've picked out some of my favourite things from their current summer collection over on their blog. One of the items I chose was this grey leather tote, so I thought it would be fun to do a quick 'in my bag' post to show you what I'm currently carrying around with me in mine.
