Scrolling through my Instagram over the last couple of months, this first image I posted back in January is a favourite. Since moving into our new build two and a half years ago I've become very familiar with the light in our home and how it moves around the spaces at different times of the day. We are fortunate that the upstairs open-plan living space is bathed in natural light, and I love how it streams in from the windows and travels across to the side of the String Shelf. If you look closely you'll see the it catching the edge of the Houston Design Co ceramics and Cultiver napkins, enhancing the natural textures and shapes. The shadows across the models face in the Repossi image add to the effect with a beautiful play on light and dark.
I've had the pleasure of testing out the latest Nespresso Limited Edition capsules this week and I’ve taken a serious liking to the sweet and silky smooth Tanim de Chiapas from coffee growers in Chiapas, Mexico, while the Umutima wa Lake Kivu produced by coffee growers in Rwanda is highly aromatic and refreshing. Providing the ultimate afternoon pick me up, the capsules arrived with the beautiful banana, coffee chocolate cake pictured below.
