For many reasons my obsession for stripes, I could say, is strong but perhaps the main reason is that stripes could be timeless like seen in these images below. A bathroom featured in 1995 by Elle Decor that still looks up-to-date and a photograph of Audrey Hepburn lounging at her home on a striped couch are two great models of its classic influence.

Every time I see a photo of Camille Belle I can’t help but notice the striking resemblance to Liz Taylor and Catherine Z Jones in her stunning beauty. As if her beauty wasn’t enough she also knows how to dress in a classic and feminine way.

Good Morning I hope you had a wonderful father’s day.  I came across these images of Emma Jane Pilkington’s home in NYC, originally published in Vogue Living.  Her dual upbringing, between Australia and Greenwich, Conn. make her interiors a mixture of glam and bohemian that make them irresistible. The floors are painted to make them look like marquetry.  Enjoy!

I’m anxiously awaiting for Nadine Coleno’s book The Hermes Scarf: History & Mystique tracing the history of more than 2,000 Hermes scarf patterns since the first scarf debuted in 1937. Hermes scarfs have always symbolized a timeless style icon pursued and admired by many. Although for many of us collecting these legendary scarfs will require a hard-skin tenacity and a full time dedication in order to grab one soon as is available, that goes without saying the extensive amount of money implicated. There is always the possibility of having this book that is undoubtedly a must-have and a great education reference. The book is published by Thames & Hudson and it’ll be available in July but you can pre-order it here.
