In The Schedule

A quick week this time, the sun slowing down it's tendency for warming rays and the grey clouds ever imposing on the horizon... me thinks, autumn is in the air people.  Time to layer up I say, stay indoors, and finish that spot of refurbishing that I started yesterday and haven't been able to finish ... yet!  I know, I did get told that I wasn't going to finish in one day!

Here are this week's links to enjoy.

+ You know Melbourne, one day warm, the next day raining... try not get caught out in the fickle weather, but if you do... remember an umbrella - not like Sigrid Agren in this editorial for Korea WMag lensed by Alex Lubomirski.  If only you could still look that elegant drenched... more images via FGR.

+ Speaking of that weather out there... I loved the dining room with fireplace in this East London home above and particularly those beautiful throws... I'm starting to amass quite a few throws - don't know why, I just like the feel of them (call me nana!?)... check out some more pics of this cosy home via House to Home here.   Also, Orson & Blake were having a sale a couple of weeks ago... there were some snuggly throws on offer too - I like this ombre grey one here.

+  On the flip side, the midriff will be making an appearance to a function near you this Summer season - aaghhh , what to do?  Lucky for us in the southern hemisphere we have six months of diligent and committed training to start / continue / think about until we get a chance to show off our pale midriffs after winter... the first time I'm glad we don't have the same seasons!  Here are some more sexy midriff baring looks via W Magazine.  (PS, I vaguely remember it being the early 90's when I last bared my midriff off the beach so I don't think this will be a possibility for me!)

+  The moody vibe of this master bedroom belies the rest of the house and it's location... take a look through this laid back home in Sydney's northern beaches for some freshness and simplicity here via Real Living.

+ Sir Paul Smith has new store opening on Beak Street in September, and you can help decorate a wall by sending a letter.  The most interesting decorated envelopes (stripes perhaps?) will be stuck on a wall en masse for what I think might be a great effect.  Pen in hand people and take down the address here... via Vogue Fr.

+  And finally, this video had me in stitches!  Director Malcolm Venville got an assignment to 'interview' Karl Lagerfeld in St Moritz during winter whilst he was showing an exhibition at Galerie Gmurzynska... through several flights, train rides, and a beautiful vista of snow laden mountains, countless phonecalls later, Malcolm finally arrived and .... I'm not going to spoil the fun - take a look for yourself - via Nowness.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone... I'm going back to moving furniture around - while I think about what I would ask Karl Lagerfeld if I interviewed him.

Love that shot of Amber Valletta. And the room looks so cosy, too cosy for our 27+ degrees (in April!). Off to watch the interview. Have a great weekend, Helen!
