NOMAD


The last post included a bathroom picture from the Nomad Hotel, situated on the corner of New York's Broadway and 28th Street. Oh my what a place.

Soak


A good soak in the bath is one of those weekend rituals that I'd hate to part with. The solitude, deep breath, mind drifting, eyes closed - cleansing the body, reviving the soul.



"There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them."
Sylvia Plath

"I used to lie between cool, clean sheets at night after I'd had a bath, after I had washed my hair and scrubbed my knuckles and finger-nails and teeth. Then I could lie quite still in the dark with my face to the window with the trees in it, and talk to God."
Frances Farmer

Stella in Scotland


A few years ago, model Stella Tennant, her French husband David Lasnet and their four children Cecily, Iris, Jasmine and Marcel decided to leave behind the humdrum of New York, and settle in Stella's childhood landscape of Scotland. And looking at these idyllic pictures of their elegant 18th century estate, I can certainly see the appeal.


(Isn't it rather refreshing to see home pictures that aren't too spick and span, but showing some traces of life? 
And not in that kind of premeditated way.)


This accompanying New York Times article was a pleasure to read, painting a rather interesting & beautiful picture of their Scottish existence.

Minna


I've been meaning to write to you about the talented and beautiful Minna Hepburn for ages actually. Originally from Finland, she's been succesfully running her vintage fashion line Minna from Dorset, England, where she now lives. Her pieces are hand-embellished using locally produced, recycled materials. 

I was kindly granted permission to show you some photos from a recent, personal shoot featuring Minna (& some samples of her exquisite collections and rather stunning four-legged creatures) that were taken by photographer Marianne Taylor (you will find more behind the link):


Minna has just been launching pieces for her latest collection, -


, and you can visit her pages for more. 


Ah, the English countryside and its rolling hills...
