i thought this would be a good thing to do every now and then, to share images from around the ‘net that i like/love, and things that inspire me. also because i just want to share. i don’t want to commit myself to something i potentially may not remember to do or stick to, so i’ll stick with ‘every now and then’ and see where it goes from there.

todays pick is from some of my pinterest boards. pinterest is addictive, isn’t it! you can find me here if you are so inclined. i’ll be posting two today and two tomorrow, so come back! if you follow me on twitter i’ll be posting a link to it. if you don’t, follow me here.

firstly, from my type board:

pinterest type selections

i definitely have a fondness for ampersands. i’m not quite sure what it is about them, but they just make me feel good somehow. this one by darren booth is particularly fine! i’ve also noticed that i’m quite drawn to single letter typography/lettering over quotes and such, i think it’s because they look a bit more graphic and bold ..but that doesn’t mean i don’t love quotes etc.

then my home decor & studio board:

home pinterest selection

1// folk rug    2// amber interiors   3// from scandanavia with love   4// zinnia folk arts

that rug is pretty fantastic, no? i love the colours and relatively simple look. i really want and/or will need a wall height bookcase someday. i love books of all types (but especially art and visual books) and can see that one day i will be buried underneath them all. when i have my own home that i can decorate however i want, i can’t decide whether i want something bursting with colour and texture or something that is for the most part black, white and grey, but with occasional pops of colour. time will tell!
