Luke Edward Hall for Buddy Editions

luke-edward-hall-illustrations-prints-charcoal-drawings-buddy-editions

I’m thrilled to announce that Buddy Editions has added new prints by a young man I admire immensely, Luke Edward Hall. I have been a fan of Luke’s creative pursuits for some time and was so pleased to meet him while in London last September (I blushed bright pink like a fan girl, true story, it was slightly mortifying…). Luke is an interior designer, stylist and illustrator with a degree from London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins. He currently works in the interior decoration department of architectural designer Ben Pentreath in London’s Bloomsbury. You may well have heard of the firm’s work–they’re currently assisting the Duchess of Cambridge with Kensington Palace. Luke’s eye for design is unparalleled and I often gush to those around me that he will be the greatest decorator in England someday. How can you not adore someone that cites his greatest weaknesses to be “Feeling anxious and almond croissants.” I can’t wait to have Luke’s work on my walls. Get to know Luke’s favorite things in his Buddy Questionnaire.

Thinking of all my friends back east today. Alfred and I have been missing the snow so much this season–it sounds like you’ll be getting enough for all of us! Stay safe, cozy, and warm!

1. J.Crew Lightweight Puffer Jacket – puffy chic… // 2. Cashmere Cap – a soft, warm beanie is a wintertime must… // 3. Pearl Arrow Earrings – stole my heart… // 4. Tory Burch Frances Satchel – this new bag is so yummy… // 5. Giles & Brother Skinny Cortina Cuff – still lusting after a pair of these cuffs… // 6. Loeffler Randall Fenton Rain Boot – chicest rain boots on the planet… // 7. Black Toothpick Jean – perfect skinny cut, I live in mine… //

I thought I’d kick off the weekend links with some photographs by Joyce Lee. I’ve been admiring her work for years (she’s shot for the likes of Hermès and Kate Spade…) and was thrilled when she agreed to give Buddy Editions exclusive rights to sell these four prints. I think I need a 30″x40″ of the ‘6am Sun Moon Lake’ (a striking shot of Joyce’s mama in Taiwan) hanging in my next apartment. And now some fun links around the web:

- I donated and hope you will too. These kids deserve inspiring field trips and safe summer programs for years to come.
‘To Fall Out of Love, Do This’ – a hysterical response by The New Yorker

– I’ve always wanted to take a river cruise down the Nile.
– Did you follow the highly addictive 40 Days of Dating experiment? This weekend I’m curling up with their newly released book.
– The simple, straight-forward to-do app that changed my life.
– The awesome Alexa Chung for AG Jeans collab sold out almost everywhere.
– A great NPR story on artist Sister Corita Kent. Many of the women in my family went to Immaculate Heart in Hollywood and their homes are full of her prints.
– My summer motivation? This Marysia Swim bikini.

Cotswold Country House

I found my dream country home across the pond in the Cotswolds. Isn’t it handsome? I especially love the bedroom below with the grey beams and blue and white table lamps. Light Locations is a catalogue of spectacular photo shoot settings throughout the UK. There are plenty of tempting options, but this renovated barn looks rather ideal for my future pug farm. Even Alfred approves.
