Marimekko Eve print

Marimekko has just reintroduced one if their prints from the 1970s. It's called Eve and it's completely beautiful!


Designed by Katsuji Wakisaka in 1972, it "tells the tale of blooming cityscapes".

A little bit of home renovation

A little bit of a change to our loungeroom this weekend at Casa Guedes. We changed the wall colour from plain old white to a deep blue. I love it; the whole mood of the room has changed and all of the artwork, as well as the wood, really pops against the blue. 


Colour: Taubmans daring indigo

Dean's Fairytales Books

When I was small I had a Dean's Fairytale book and I remember reading it, but in particular, spending hours gazing at the illustrations. Yesterday I saw on Pinterest that one of Milk magazines new shoots features an image of a little girl wearing an almighty paper hat and reading a Dean's fairytale book.

The image, shot by Gemma Booth photography, really took me back, so I started searching more of the lovely illustrations from those books. I think my copy may have been a 1971 edition. Here are some beautiful images from various Dean's Books, all via Pinterest.

Marimekko for Target arrived!

Such a happy day: my Marimekko for Target loot finally arrived from the USA!


A friend of my husband's kindly let me ship it to his house in California, as Target don't ship internationally. (Target Australia, you should really rethink a collab with Marimekko).

Everything is amazing and such beautiful quality that I really wish I'd bought more. I tried to stick to practical and light to ship stuff, which meant no hammock, boogie board or tents unfortunately!

The best things are the tea towels, I'm so glad I bought four. They are great quality, thick cotton.
The bag is also lovely - and HUGE! It'll be great for Summer.
I love the flip flops, or thongs, as we call them in Australia, although the print will be hidden underfoot when I wear them. Boo. 
The platter is nice but probably the only thing I don't loooooove. I'm glad I didn't buy more platters, as I was definitely considering buying lots of these pieces. They are melamine, which is great for picnicware, but the print isn't super great quality. I don't know, it looks a little faded. Don't get me wrong, I like it. It just doesn't seem as good quality as the other pieces, which are very impressive, considering the Target price tags.

I'm a very happy camper all in all though! Yay Target for Marimekko, an overall thumbs up!
