Who ARE we?

We are beauty in simple things. We are lazy sundays lying on the grass and picnics in autumn. We are summer festivals and guitars by the beach. We are Apple&Rust!

The perfectly Imperfect - Wabi Sabi

I have always been drawn to things that are somewhat imperfect, especially in interiors or decor. Perhaps that's how I see myself, and the world in general. But I always saw a certain beauty in the imperfection..particularly objects which show signs of age and are reminiscent of a foregone era. And recently through Apartment Therapy, I found out that the Japanese have a word for it... WABI SABI! I thought the concept was beautiful...










Mood Board: Turkish Delight

Turkey seems like a truly magical place. And Turkish decor and fabrics are full of inspiration with colourful prints, often featuring the tulip flower.

Chocolates and Cigarettes



"Blowing out the candles from my cake 
I choke on the smoke as I look around the room
Everybody's wishing for no more mistakes

And all that I can think about is you..."

Antique Street Lamps


It's dusk...the sun sets and the sky shows us its most delicious array of colours... a pink and orange concoction...soon enough the show is over and night has arrived once more.. and it is time for those elegant giants to shine.. the humble street lamps. We have some beautiful antique street lamps which illuminates a bridge near by. The hazy light they shine is both mysterious and romantic.. and they watch the street below each night like gentle guardians..
