{a photographer, a designer + bohemian elegance}


. . . last week it was silver canisters in a copenhagen kitchen, and this week, inspiration comes in the form of a vintage cake tin and a glimpse of pinkish wallpaper . . .

. . . and as it turns out, the images above were taken by photographer deborah jaffe, whose e-mail arrived in perfect time with the discovery of white & gold cake tins and neisha crosland wallpaper, and who has shot for domino, martha stewart living and elle decoration uk:

. . . and the owner of the vintage tins, mismatched patterned ceramics, plush textiles and flea-market finds is california-based fashion designer erica tanov, whose bohemian romantic style can be seen in both her berkeley home and current clothing collection . . .

  • I adore this spread – so lovely and inspiring. I’m swooning!

  • hello felicity! so lovely to hear from you and thank you, both for the link and lovely comment.

    posting has been rather sporadic this week and this post was up rather late so perhaps that might have something to do with it — but so happy you liked it — thought it was fun and a bit of departure, as might normally have used only the first two and last light + airy images…

    hope you’re well,
