Gothic drama for Halloween and beyond

I’ve always had a soft spot for Victorian curiosity cabinets and a little bit of gothic drama. There used to be a great antiques store here in Brighton called Battle Antiques & Oddities specializing in these types of objects but alas it’s no longer here. So here’s my selection in honour of Halloween from 1stDibs, Peter Petrou and Stuart Richards.
selection: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Lately lusting for #art

Completely compelled by the photographic work of Simon Davidson via his online store in Australia here.

Repost - Vincent van Gogh, there is no blue without yellow and without orange

I posted about the need for blue to be paired with yellow and or orange back in 2011 and I think its just as relevant now with all the teals and navy's we are seeing this autumn. So as Vincent van Gogh’s said there is "There is no blue without yellow and without orange” Original unamended post here.
It seems that in nearly every magazine and every blog I have read in the last couple of weeks, the colour blue is taking a staring role.  Blue in all its hues from royal blue or inky midnight, teal or bluey grey all are taking on bigger roles in 2011 fashion and paint palettes.

Fabulous jazz soles on these shoes by Tom and Fiona Slack. I am so inspired by the Vincent van Gogh’s quote: There is no blue without yellow and without orange” It just makes me happy.
