Recently I had a great opportunity to do a shoot with an up-in-coming jewelry designer who, before April, was a mystery to me. As I arrived on location I was presented with the most inspiring pieces I have laid eyes on in quite a long time.
For her F/W 2011 collection designer Sarah Swell displays jewelry that she describes in her lookbook as “rooted in ancient technique.” Also included in her lookbook Sarah communicates the originality of her work in that “each and every piece has handcrafted elements that remain true to the art of metalsmithing.”

What I believe is most unique about Sarah Swell designs is the rustic feel that combines hard edges with sparkling detail. This pairing makes each piece essential to any wardrobe with its ability to enhance a casual or formal look.

I am truly in lust with this DIY stenciled flooring as seen on Design Sponge. The stencil was custom made by tracing a floral fabric pattern onto a sheet of blank stencil paper, and then cutting out the desired shapes with an X-Acto knife. The result is this incredibly elegant and beautiful fabric-like custom flooring. Perhaps not for the novice DIY-er, but definitely inspiring. Enjoy.
“This Citrus Cake with Lemon Curd Filling and Orange Lemon Icing was inspired by Stella McCartney’s Spring collection, and was made and photographed by Apollinas.”
Blogger, Appolinas, paid great attention to detail when creating and styling this delicious-looking cake. Definitely a recipe I would love to try.
I happened to stumble across printed textile designer Rosemary Milner and was instantly charmed by her dreamy, nature-inspired prints. There is something delightfully playful and elegant about Rosemary’s aesthetic that seems to remind me of the mythical creatures from classic children’s fables like “The Fox and the Grapes” and “The Tortoise and the Hare.” This definitely falls in line with Milner’s love for historical narratives, natural imagery, and woodland wildlife. Rosemary designs her whimsical prints for fabrics and wallpaper, relishing traditional techniques like hand etching, lino illustration, and silk screen print. Enjoy!
