have you seen the outer towners? the outer towners is the dream project of a photographer i’ve long admired, australia-based tara pearce, a picture book of things to see, do and experience in this special place tara calls home. tara lives in in Kyneton with her two kids, and husband named — wait for it — Taras. so clearly they were meant to be together! tara is a “sun chaser, shoe collector, thrift seeker and explorer”, and the outer towners is a project tara dreamt up one winter’s morning sitting in a local cafe with her husband, feeling very lucky to be living in the countryside. tara created the outer towners as a side project with an emphasis on celebrating all the food, folks and the adventures they have in the australian countryside. i love sites like this that share real homes, belonging to real people — nothing staged and just perfectly imperfect ‘as is’. these are just a few of my favorite snapshots from the outer towners, so be sure to check out the site for much more inspiration from tara’s very creative friends and neighbors and her wonderful photos of their homes and studio spaces.
we all have them. the friends that are just the right amount of cool. the friends that are put together. the friends with the just right home. i imagine megan gilroy to be this type of friend. her pinboards are pretty much just the right amount of everything. often times i look to pinterest for inspiration of all types: home interiors, fashion, art, photography…etc. megan gilroy’s pinterest boards inspire me in all of these ways and more. pin-worthy seems like an understatement in this case.
see you in a couple of weeks friends.

Inspired by the work of Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri and his constant inquiry into the fiction of photography and the natural world, the prints in Print Club Boston’s newest Hollywood Hills collection aren’t what they seem. Each of the hand screened mountainous prints in this colorful series are actually from photos taken of the giant snow mounds from Boston’s recent ‘polar-vortex’ – perfect for bringing in pops of both bright colors, fun textures, and a spin on the traditional landscape into your space.

Wishing you a restful Labor Day Weekend!
well, there’s no denying it — summer is winding down. it’s the long labor day weekend, which always signals the last days of summer. fall fashions will start popping up and we’ll start thinking about layering up. but i’d like to savor these lingering summer days with some lazy, bohemian chic lounging areas. what better way to savor the summer heat and be leisurely just a little bit longer. have a lovely long holiday weekend everyone. annie will be popping in next with friday finds, and then we’ll see you back here on tuesday.
