Interior Stylings of Twig Hutchinson

The interior stylings of Londoner Twig Hutchinson are just as unique and unusual as her name. Her decor vignettes are intriguing, eclectic and whimsical, yet have a simple and shabby flair. To see more, you must check out her lovely site.

Happy Monday, whimsies! I hope it was a lovely one for you! Okay, let's get the week started with some eye candy. How adorable and creative are these paper crafts made by textiles designer and artist, Jennifer Collier. I was blown away when I came across one of her creations on the lovely blog, Laissez Faire. So you know I then had to go to Jennifer's site to see more of her works. In crafting her pieces, Jennifer uses natural and found materials. She uses methods of weaving, waxing, trapping, embedding and stitching to create her fabulous works, which are then developed into precious garments and accessories. She often uses papers, plastics and fabrics in creating her pieces. I'm telling you, you'll be blown away, too. Go check out her site for yourself. I would looove to have Jennifer create a paper vintage fashion clutch bag for me! Jennifer, if you happen to stumble across my blog and see this post, could you consider creating that bag for me? PLEASE!!

Vintage Abode {Part 2 - The Mission}

A week ago I posted the spectacular and whimsical beach shack of Helen and Frazer Cunningham of Cowles, Isle of Wright, UK. And, I told you that the Cunninghams have some fabulous vintage properties available for vacations and holidays. Well, here's one of those properties, The Mission, a converted classic tin tabernacle, circa 1895. The space consists of two (2) mezzanines and open-plan bedrooms. The kitchen / diner has a fully restored "English Rose" 1950s kitchen. And, the "Sunday School" houses two (2) bedrooms and a shower and bath area. This abode is freakin' amazing! Watch for Part 3 - coming soon!

The George Tavern {A Tattered Beauty}

{images: the selby}
How raw and fun is this sprawling home space at the George Tavern in London, owned by Pauline Forster, an English artist and designer and Toby Penrose, a film animator. How creative these two are! I love everything about their home: it's kooky; it's eclectic; it's whimsical; it's flavorful; it's "out there". And, I love the peeling wallpapers and bare bones walls. Check out the livingroom's light up disco dance floor {can you say Saturday Night Fever, baby!}. And, how 70s is that bathroom?! What do you think of this tattered beauty?
