Little creative project: Using plywood as a canvas

Little creative project: Creating art with plywood

It’s not secret that I love plywood. These 12 inspiring kitchens are proofs that beautiful things could be achieved with this inexpensive material and I really like how Steve’s office turned out in the tree house with plywood walls. This photo caught my eye because I thought using a piece of plywood was a great and inexpensive little creative project. What do you think? Do you love plywood or hate it? //Photography: Anders Bergstedt

5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW!

It’s 35 degrees in France. It’s so hot that Steve & Mila had diner at the beach. No wonder why this kid doesn’t want to come back to London! 1/This beautiful Nestor leather bag by Jérôme Dreyffus has been on my wish list for a while (available in black here) 2/This boyfriend shirt from Hush and Denim shorts especially these from Ralph Lauren 3/I love having cosmetics in great packaging and this Fig + Yarrow sea scrub and Buttercream moisturiser are gorgeous 4/Of course, my beloved Isabel Marant Dickers boots which are so comfy that I wear mine with bare feet but if you can’t afford the real thing, these boots from Hush are a great alternative. 5/ and this new Melbourne print from our collection, which is hardly something to take to the beach but I’m re-decorating a house down there and today a few pretty things are heading to the coast and that includes this basket, this lovely marble chopping board and this gorgeous dark grey sofa. Have a fab day

5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW!

Last year I bought 5 jumpsuits and most of them have been great investment, meaning I wore them weekly each Season (except maybe a black one from Mango which I’ll put on Ebay when I’m back in London). For me, a great investment is based on the cost per wear ratio. Meaning, the cost of the item Vs the number of times I will wear the item. This is how I justify to spend $$$$ on a pair of Dicker ankle boots by Isabel Marant, (which to be honest I wear day in day out during the Summer and have for the past 3 Summers)…and it’s why it’s also good to mix great designer pieces like this Winter coat by Marant, which you are likely to wear a few Winters and things from the high-street or more affordable online brands like Hush, ASOS, Boden or French Connection.
