Hue: Burnt gold

Some of my favourite shopping finds in this warm golden colour.
1. Golden glasses by One King's Lane
2. Cute metal rings from Old Gold Boutique
3. Metal & leather sandals by Chloé

Simple comforts

Clockwise from left: Ashley Helvey's apartment featured on design*sponge, cinnamon bun pancakes, and heaps of bed linen.

hue: spectrum

Some pretty nail polishes from Scotch Naturals in pale neutral pink, periwinkle blue, mint and coral - perfect colours for summer.

I love these quirky coloured oxfords (originally from Simone LeBlanc, found on pinterest)

Beautiful patterned coffee cups designed by Sarah Walsh for Mallard Tearooms

Zakka 雑貨

Clockwise from left: ceramic bowl, tricolor lunchbox, enameled bowls, enameled milk pan.

SimpleSize is a Japanese lifestyle store that sells all kinds of sundries. I am in love with their lovely kitchenware, especially their enameled bowls and pots.

And I leave you with some cuteness from the most delightful yo! happy!, a blog run by Japanese designer Yoko Noguchi.

Moomah Café

Moomah is a quirky little café and art space in Tribeca, NY. I love the concept that they are selling - very down to earth and family friendly. Not to mention their beautifully designed coffee cups and menus, courtesy of Apartment One. Be sure to check out their recently launched journal as well.
