Street style

With the massive success of The Sartorialist a whole new genre of street blogs have been born. I love checking out what other people from around the world are wearing and how they are wearing it! Here are a few worth checking out. This one from Trendy Crew, a blog that focuses on Fashion, Photography and contemporary culture. 

Garance Dore has a fantastic eye and seems to be at all the right places.

I know it is summer in New York but winter somewhere else, hence this shot from the iconic Look Book section of the New York Magazine.

Missed Connections

Have you ever checked out the missed connections section of Craig's list? I think each one could be a short story, have a look here. Sophie Blackall's drawings ar so sweet and quirky. She has a fun blog about missed connections in New York.

Colours in rooms make a big huge difference - we painted our kitchen, a lovely blue and our dining room a sparkly light purple and what a massive difference it has made to our place. It just looks fresher, cleaner and way more hip than the yellowy colour the rooms both had when we bought our place. A couple of buckets of paint and some elbow grease and voila. I'll post some pics soon. In the meantime, here are some wonderful colours, I'm thinking a repaint of the kitchen to hot pink-and have sensed a trend for me...I seem to gravitate to blues...PS Sorry for being away so long, I was on a mini blog break. 
1. I love this blue and the way the chandelier and the white trim really pops. 
2. Unconventional for me but this green really works here

3. Pink isn't the first colour to pop into your mind for a kitchen, but it works so well here.  
4. This is the blue we have in our kitchen, lovely and really gives the room a clean, crisp feel. 

5.I love this colour and the way the pictures all blend and pop against the wall
6. I love this red here, would be fantastic in a small den or even a dining room. 
7. Check out Betsey Johnson's apartment, it is totally pink, from top to bottom.
