Nearly nine months ago, in early September of last year, received an email from the lovely Shannon, Contributing Editor at Design*Sponge, asking if I might be interested in being featured in their Sneak Peeks column. As Design*Sponge is the very first blog in the universe had ever read, was, of course, thrilled. However, the timing was off, as things were in disarray and we were in the midst of moving and travelling, and so, had decided to put the thought off until things had settled a little. Nearly a year later [had been told that some Sneak Peeks have taken as long as two years to complete], and the day has finally arrived . . .
We ended up shooting over a few days, a few months ago already, and invited new friend Jessica [she of spontaneous picnics in the park and elaborate afternoon teas] to help with the styling, both of us spending days entangled in hyacinths and handpainted china, pastel-coloured macarons and books and more books . . .
And so, here, a few photographs from the shoot, as well as outtakes, and some recent instagram snapshots mixed in for good measure, as a preview — [click here] — if you like, for the full tour, and a little glimpse of the place we call home . . .
