I finally found some time to drop in on the Pick Me Up show at Somerset House last night.  There’s a great selection of work on (including the chance to get a glimpse of Rob Ryan at work), and the show was really well put together.

My favourite pieces, however, were Natski Seki’s ‘Four Seasons’.  They are massive (about a meter square) and really beautiful in person.  They’re on sale for £400 each – which is pricey – but tempting considering how stunning they are.

The biggeset problem is that I couldn’t decide on a favourite.  Spring, summer, fall or winter?

La Trufa

A concrete hideaway in Spain made by pouring concrete over hay bales and then allowing a cow (named Paulina) to eat away the hay.

Seriously.

Watch the whole thing being built here.  It’s amazing.

Finally saw I AM LOVE over the weekend.  Ooh, the opulence!  The melodrama!  The passion!  Definitely worth seeing.

The 1930′s, Art Deco villa from the film practically steals the show (I say ‘practically’, because nothing can really be stolen from Tilda Swinton.)  But it’s a breathtaking piece of architecture, nonetheless.  The actual location is Villa Necchi Campiglio, a historical property you can visit in the heart of Milan.   Bonus!

Add it to your itinerary next time you find yourself in northern Italy.

These canvas bags from Mariners Supply Company in Cornwall have got it all.  They’re simple, sturdy, well-priced and design classics.

AND you know they’ll last because they’re based on traditional designs for fishermen and sailors.

Brilliant.  They really make me want to be on a boat near a beach.

I thought I should share these Iceland-inspired collages by Tom Edwards in honour of Eyjafjallajökull.

They’re visually satisfying AND culturally relevant!

Via of paper and things.

Geometric Stickies

Love these new stickies from Present & Correct.

I think they’d genuinely make my life more fun.

Is that sad?

Cut & Paste

This limited edition collection of curiosities by Kiki van Eijk and Secondome is stunningly conceived.  I just love the combination of shapes, colours and materials.

They’re so surreal that they’re practically impossible to describe – (for example: ‘A half circular white shiny shape with 2 little half circular mirrors covers the other half of the circle made of blue wool felt with Royal Blue hand stitching.’)

I’d recommend looking at each item in detail here.
