Owl prints

I really fancy Abigail Edwards' 'Owls of the British Isles' wallpaper for Seth and Bo's room, but I'm not sure I can afford £68 a roll.

A more realistic way to create an owl theme could be a version of the walls at Social La Lechuza (Uriarte 1980, Palermo Soho). They're covered, floor to ceiling, in an eclectic collection of framed pictures of owls.
Here are some pics from there, where we celebrated Ian Mount's birthday a few weeks back.

Three tent weekend

Perfect camping weekend away at Capilla del Senor with Mattina, Ian, Cintra and Henry.

Definitely not an insomniac

Jeans to go

I saw Patricio Lix Lett's team making these jeans hangers for Vitamina a few weeks ago. He used scraps of recycled leather and chipboard, wet them and moulded them onto a purpose made iron bar. Once dried it looks like a light wood, and the rope threaded with steel wire finishes them off. What a great concept and technique. They're in stores now.
