South Indian Cow Heads

My love for these South Indian Cow Heads statred some years back when Graham and Green brought out their cow head (bottom image). At the time I was a poor student nurse and could not afford one, now they are sadly discontinued.

I have never really been a big fan of all the real carved cow skulls out there, for me having a real head on the wall is a little morbid, although i can totally appreciate the craftmanship involved. But, these wooden carved heads, painted with their big soulful eyes and big pink noses and ears are really light hearted and fun.... beautiful holy cows!

Current Obsession: Penguin Classics......

Collection: Penguin Classics: Beautiful Vintage Books

I love books organised by colour. I am dyslexic and trying to figure out where a book comes alphabetically is embarrassingly hard work.... i never forget the colour of the jacket!!

Penguin classics did it first.....

Penguin revolutionized the printing press in the 1930's by cheaply producing books by only using a simple three band design. Each of the separate colour covers represents a different genre...

The Bohemian, Jewel Toned Home of.... Pippa Small

I love this wonderful bohemian jewel tone home of Jewelery designer Pippa Small. The two bedroom London apartment was a clinical white when Pippa moved in but she loved the place because of its sense of space and along with friend Gail Arnold, she set about transforming the place into the colorful home it is today.

On her travels for inspiration Pippa had built up a large collection of paintings, trinkets and textiles which she found worked perfectly with the bright coloured walls.

My favorite room is the sitting room, i love that blue/violet wall and that huge Indian painting. Such a dreamy exotic apartment.... would certainly cheer up a rainy British day!!
