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.  

For those in Auckland, Bloom Social have put together a stunning Valentine's Day edit, teaming up with Moochi to include a selection of jewellery and Essie NZ with a polish duo to go along with the gorgeous blush coloured roses. There's still time to pre-order if you're quick, (or drop some hints for the man in your life!) I was also very happy to receive some more La Chamba cookware to add to my collection. The organic, handcrafted and wonderfully versatile pieces are exclusive to French Country Collections and can be purchased at their Herne Bay store Un Deux Trois and at selected stockists

January included some holiday pics from our stay up at Point Wells, near beautiful Omaha beach, just an hour and a half north of Auckland. 

Finally, a highlight from this week was attending the Citta Design Winter 2016 Preview Beautiful Utility - A Journey to 1970s Berlin. The Haus Tea Towel and Ginger Bread Candle above give you a small taste of what to expect. It's all gorgeous and I can't wait to share more with you!
