91 Magazine is a uk based publication to be released quarterly. I love its vintage focus. Caroline of Patchwork Harmony, as well as the rest of the team, have done a breathtaking job on the first issue.
~ Im so excited to have an image included in their article about antique marmalade jars. i love the opening reference to Alice in Wonderland...

i think i must have breakfast on the brain... the mornings here in san francisco have been spectacular, clear and bright and crisp and i have been soaking up every glorious moment. I also switched over to a chemex coffee pot for the morning's wake-up call. I have to say after using a french press the chemex is the bees knees!
Im more than a little obsessed with it, both from a perfect cup angle and a design perspective. I love its shape and the way it looks all set up with the paper filter and rich coco-black coffee inside & to top it all off that little wooden collar and rawhide tie. I think its so chic.anatomy of the chemex.
whats funny is that until i came to sf (i also think grad school had something to do with it) i didnt even drink coffee! but with such a strong culture around the stuff here on the west coast i acclimated rather quickly and have surely been making up for lost time.
images can be found on my Chemex pintrest board.

Thomas O'Brien's "American Modern". I know the book has been out for a while and you are probably familiar with it by now, but I just cant seem to get it out of my system now that its in my house.
If you havent spent time with this book I highly reccomend it. I keep finding myself thinking about an image or phrase from the pages and going back to flip through and find what I've been thinking about.

i also started stripping the little knob on the front of the cupboard thinking it would reveal brass or some metal..but to my glee and surprise it revealed a very old little cranberry bakelite knob. i can only imagine its original to the apartment

after spending time with leslie williamson's handcrafted modern, i have been sort of smitten with the designs of russel wright. i feel like ive learned a new word and am hearing it everywhere. perhaps best known are his ceramic designs, elegantly organic in soft color tones. but he also designed furniture pieces and his own home.
pitcher, cups and saucers, tea pot, places setting, 1stdibs andirons, chairs

hope you enjoy these figs, not exactly flowers, but they usher in the fall weather we have been feeling here so perfectly.
