Inspiration: Tatami

Bonjour !

Let's start the week with some visual inspiration from Tatami-Antiques, an interesting online marketplace for antique and folk art pieces embodying the essence of Japanese art and culture. Seldom have I seen such a beautiful, handpicked collection of simple, timeworn objects with a soul. Love!

Shop The Look #2

One last swim before Autumn sets in


As you can see, this week's Shop The Look post is inspired by the beautiful colours of Autumn, captured so perfectly in these fine art photographs by Lucy Snowe.

I hope you enjoy exploring the links below. They all lead you to equally enticing shops, or makers' and creatives' sites where I love to wander.

High Five #91

OK, I'm going to use the 'C' word - Christmas.

I've just placed an order for two of these beautiful posters from SOFFA Magazine's website, and I'm feeling rather smug. I mean, for once, I'm actually in advance... I'm reorganising my life, freeing up more time for myself and my family, and doing my very best to enjoy every single day. Try it! I'm certainly being more productive, and if I ban myself from touching anything with a screen on it for a few hours, I get so much done!

So, Xmas shopping (on a budget) has begun... Take a look at SOFFA's A2 poster collection, there's something for everyone, including kids, and at 10.50 EUR per print, why not treat yourself as well? Oh, go on!

Random Rules #1



Well Hello Monday!

I hope you had fun this weekend.

We've been taking things slowly, re-adjusting to our life as a family of four (our eldest son left home recently), planning trips abroad, working on the house and well, just pottering.

I've been thinking a lot about my future on the web, and I'm enjoying the challenge of "re-creating" myself online, or rather of exploring and developing certain aspects in particular.

Today, I'd like to share five random favorite links, all very worthy of your attention.

Treat yourself to a five minute break and browse their inspiring sites.

Moi, J'adore !

Random Rules #1

1) In my kitchen by Anastasia Benko- atmine
2) ' Stilled' ( 2013) - Salt Mills - Caroline Bartlett
3) Future Textiles - Jaqueline Lefferts
4) Cutlery rests - Bluemics, etsy
5) Installation 10m3 à la Manufacture Roubaix by X11 + 52

Bonne Journée !

Shop The Look #1

Oh, I know,
I'm sure 
You've heard it all before.

But, yes,

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts

I love looking for original things to share and as I've had lots of wonderful feedback about my moodboards, I thought I'd start a new "Shop The Look" column featuring beautiful fashion, design and décor with links to some very special makers and shops. 

Sound good? I hope so. I for one like the look and feel of this week's inspirational shopping board:


Happy Browsing!

Every Picture Tells A Story #13

My pic(k) of the day because I keep going back to look it time after time.

I want to see more now.  I want to take a peek at all of Helen's other rooms, sense all her other stories. I'm curious, aren't you?

Have you joined at{mine}, the new online community for home and design lovers yet?

A New Leaf

Et voilà !

The end of an era - I closed my shop last night, and I'm excited to start a new chapter of my life online. I will be blogging daily, here and elsewhere, and I'm so looking forward to sharing all my new finds with you. Onwards and upwards, right?

K&C needs freshening up a bit, so I will be making a few changes over the next few weeks. I will be adding more fashion, design, interiors, as well as a handful of kids' posts, hopefully bringing the blog more in line with my tumblr Plumes & Feathers, my ello feed and my pinterest. I am also going to be working on our home and garden (olive harvesting soon), so you can expect to see more snippets of our family life here in the beautiful South of France.

Sound good? I hope so!

I'm eager to get back into blogging, back to where it all started.

This is going to be me looking for beauty, most of the time.

Let's go!
