Saga Sig is a photographer from Iceland, based in London. These are some of her work that we especially found interesting and inspiring. The imagery is very strong, with splashes of bright colours and the rebellious girls. The styling is very successful as well. To see more of her work check out her website and have a look at her blog: The Neverending Story.

TAKE ME THERE

May 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

Gorgeous home, nestled in a small coastal village in the Tramuntana region of Majorca, belongs to Alexandre de Betak, a renowned events producer, art director and designer whose work includes fashion shows and extravaganzas for clients such as Dior, Rodarte and Tiffany. He was dreaming about this Cave House for 10 years. After looking for a location for five years the design and construction processes have taken four years. Locating at the sea coast the village gives wonderful views on Mediterranean Sea.

Imagine being there right now with the ones you love! Even the thought of it makes us smile.

During a year living in Mexico Scout & Catalogue was born out of the desire to live a simpler, more balanced life.Scout & Catalogue is heavily influenced by the bohemian beach culture of Mexico.

We especially love the accessories in this one : 
We strive to make pieces that remind you of afternoons at secret beaches, sun kissed skin, and all day siestas.’

FROM ME TO YOU

May 24, 2011 § 1 Comment

Letters are so beautiful. It’s sad that they hardly exist nowadays.

Sweet letter Jim Morrison wrote to his mother when he was 10 years old. (letters can be found, amongst other documents, in The Jim Morrison Scrapbook)

Dear Mother,

As Easter rolls around each year, I think of how you have helped me face all the many hardships in my life. I only wish I could put on paper how much I appreciate the help and love you have given me through my life.

Love, Jim

From Marilyn Monroe to Joe Dimaggio (The letter is featured in the book, MM-Personal: From the Private Archive of Marilyn Monroe )

 Dear Joe,

If I can only succeed in making you happy — I will have succeeded in the bigest and most difficult thing there is — that is to make onepersoncompletelyhappy. Your happiness means my happiness.
