I’ve been meaning to put my collection of Miyuki seeds beads to good use. They’ve always been one of those things that I can’t restrain myself from hoarding every time I step inside a bead store. The perfectly uniform, cylindrical beads come in nearly every shade of color imaginable and their itty bitty size make them that much more appealing. I’ve got a thing for anything miniature. So inspired by Sashi’s seed bead bracelets and George Frost’s morse code jewelry, I recently made a handful of mini seed bead bracelets, each encoded with secret little messages.
If I could live in one outfit every day of the week, it would plainly be a semi sheer cotton white v-neck tee and a perfectly broken in pair of blue jeans. Boring . . but wait, not really. Thankfully, For Love & Lemon‘s collection of stunning bralettes turns up my t-shirt and denim game. Their strappy silhouettes and delicate lace details subtly peek through, adding the perfect amount of sexy. And their recent collaboration with Free People? A match made in lingerie heaven.
All of the incredible charm that makes up interior designer Deborah French‘s Tribeca loft comes from one far flung country after another. A 19th century Indian grain grinder and an antique Moroccan window serve as coffee tables. Custom made French mattresses sit on top of a low wood platform built in the shape of the Greek letter pi. Antique Swedish and French furniture are adorned with Suzani fabric from Uzbekistan. Art and objects from China are so beautifully placed throughout. And of course, the casement doors and windows that separate the bedroom from the living space are from a 1920’s New York City building. Just perfect.
