Eternal Winter in London...still raining, still grey, still cold... totally feels like Winter, but hey, wait a minute it is April! and then I wonder why I need my breaks back home, in my sunny and warm little island. I keep motivating myself by buying yellow and red tulips, wearing colourful scarfs and jumpers, eating plenty of biscuits, chocolate and looking at pretty interiors filled with gorgeous textiles and homewares.
Last week I went to the launch of Selina lake's latest book and all the sudden I found myself in a hall full of pink, red, blue, green, you name it, I felt instantly at home and very cosy. I saw some of my friends, Lynne from tea for joy, Bianca from kissher, Zeena from heartzeena and Clare from clare nicolson, they were selling their gorgeous products alongside other very talented makers/designers.
I had the chance to browse the Homespun Style book with photography by Debi Treloar, and it looks just as you would expect by its cover, colourful, vintage, personal and with a touch of homemade that is characteristic of Selina's style. I own several books of her and always go back to them for inspiration. Here are some images of the book spreads and launch event, I did not take my camera, so photos are from different visitors and designers.
