It’s no secret that I love interiors…visiting them, imagining them, re-imagining my own, daydreaming about them, scrolling through endless images of them online and in print, creating them myself for work and…I just adore a hand drawn version of an interior!  I stumbled upon this above beauty by artist Lulu deKwiatkowski and ended up down a rabbit hole of interiors paintings by masters of the medium.  I was even reminded of some (rudimentary) line drawings I did at university of my then apartment and dug them out of storage to have a look!

Jess has been super busy working on a big project, so ideas about productivity have been shooting around in her brain…  

It seems everyone is hustlin’ these days. In between work, family, social commitments and side projects, we are a bunch of do-ers who seem to be addicted to being busy. Everyone is on a mission to get sh** done.

I just discovered the work of Helsinki born photographer Osma Harvilahti by stumbling upon a couple of photographs that involve one of my favourite colour combos ever – light blue and orangey red, with a cherry lemon on top! There is a special quality to his images; that find a beauty in the mundane. Be it a windscreen, lighter or bathroom sink scene, the objects in the picture all look so delicate and soft despite their man-made harshness…these are things I see in real life, but can never quite capture in the same way. I love the creamy, dreamy look to his work. Do you?
