I love these natural tones, so very calming. I love the creamware with the natural wood. I admire people who can master this look. It takes discipline. I would have a hard time resisting a few splashes of color. Pink velvet and leopard print get me every time. …

Bruno Mars put on such a great show tonight at the Entertainment Industry’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund Gala at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. And afterward they handed out Sprinkles red velvet cupcakes at the door. Bliss.

There’s a lovely feature on the home of Sydney woman Wendy Paterson in this month’s Vogue Living Australia, showcasing her taste for simplicity…

Paterson spends her weekends “fossicking” for treasures at flea markets and antique stores.
She tells Vogue Living: “I always want my home to be better on Monday than it is on Friday because of something new I’ve found.”

“I always want to pare things back so that each object has its own space
— to decorate with the lightest touch.”

Paterson says: “I love the ghosts of past owners.”

When she renovated her house, she kept a saying on a wall:
“White is not the mere absence of colour.”

This is how our house looks at the moment….

(The woman with moon print is by Rose Walton. I bought it from her a million years ago when she was selling her art on Ebay. I lost track of her for awhile but recently found her on Etsy.)

(Previous places where we’ve lived. Also with cats.)
