{autumn comes in shades of hermès}

french-chic-hed
hermes-bluepool

. . . every year at this time, begin to fall for extravagantly vibrant hues -- russet and goldenrod and that perfectly elusive shade of french orange that sometimes flutters on a fallen and windswept leaf, caught up in the breezes of a cool september morning . . .

{p.s.} also: kevin sharkey's manhattan apartment and one | two | three

. . . have had this editorial, oh so pretty: live it up in a delicate dress by georges antoni for aussie magazine grazia on the inspiration board for a while now, most especially for the little white lace dress by alex perry, but also because absolutely adore delicate dresses and dressing up, and every once in a while and especially on dusky and daydreamy afternoons at home . . .

{p.s.} happy, happy september! while shall always love summer best, september is a rather beautiful month, with the last magical afternoons of the summer, and the first brisk mornings of autumn, moments after the sun has risen and there's a feeling of change and adventure in the air . . .

. . . intricately panelled walls, juliet balconies and elegant fireplaces, floods of dusky and romantic light and stunning chevron floors -- if one could describe the beautiful and all too fleeting moments between late summer and early fall, perhaps it would as this . . .

{p.s.} more perfectly ornate walls:
* happily ever after
* gilt & chevron

{also:} a corner fireplace

{two lovely things: black & white}


entryway-chanel

powder-room-chevron

. . . whether an iconic and luxurious custom design perfectly paired with an ornate gilt console in the entryway, or a bold and impossibly stylish herringbone pattern in the powder room, there is such wonderful drama and visual impact in graphic patterns in shades of black and white . . .

{p.s.} recent two lovely things
:
* bits of green
* cool august nights
* light & lavender

{lookbook: secret squirrel}

. . . light cardigans over silk tanks and soft t-shirts with pale pleated skirts, secretary's blouses with city shorts and perfectly pretty little black dresses -- a time of transitions and layers and romantically tousled hair on the out the door on an early september morning . . .

{p.s.} a previous collection & nautical at the side project

{table for two: what katie ate, encore}


katie-ate-again-6

. . . this week's table for two is favourite australian food photographer katie quinn davies, who was featured here in july, but has added a charming new cookbook layout to her blog, a few gorgeous new photographs, as well as amazingly wonderful new recipes, such as farfalle with bacon, peas and sage, baby fig and apple fruit tarts, conchiglie pasta with mushrooms and parmesan cream sauce, red velvet cupcakes, and of course, pink grapefruit granita . . .

{fashion inspiration: goldenrod}

falling-for-fall-hed
altamira-mustard

. . . most often drawn to pale & pretty neutrals, both at home and in the closet -- nude, blush and champagne and, for good measure, always black . . . but goldenrod is a hue have yet to perfect, but in the form of an insanely stylish and belted jacket and paired with an indescribably lovely shade of green and a gorgeously patterned scarf, it may just be the very colour of autumn . . .

. . . the last day of august and how it has arrived so quickly is a mystery, and while the early morning air has become a little cooler, the sun still shines warmly and whether it's ribbons or tulle, stripes on a chair or a soft cashmere sweater, whether in shades of monticello or azalea, somehow, the last days of summer always feels like pink . . .

{p.s.} today is also p's birthday and we're off to lose ourselves in beautiful things . . . à bientôt & hope your week is off to a perfect start xo

{décor inspiration: corner fireplaces}

rustic-charm
corner-fireplace

. . . far too warm outside to be thinking about fireplaces, but must confess have never really stopped -- {the coziness! and pure romance} -- and this corner fireplace {in the kitchen} is perfect in its rustic elegance and particularly charming . . .

. . . have long admired the work of british photographer craig mcdean, and with september's arrival, have been especially taken with this recent editorial for w magazine, featuring georgia may jagger and a beautiful mix of sequined gowns and leopard print, luxe hair and smokey eyes, opulent ornamentation and an elegantly blasé and decadent moodiness . . .

{p.s.} this shot of jessica stam is another favourite
