this week we’re getting very monochromatic as we head down under to another of australia’s well-designed eateries. we’re stopping in at little collins street kitchen where one might opt for some oyster tastings, or if later in the afternoon — high tea! designed by hecker guthrie and located inside melbourne’s sheraton hotel, this white-on-white themed restaurant is going to make you shine — how could one help but stand out against this backdrop? we’re going to attempt to blend in, but just not too much! let’s play a little hide & go seek — tossing this polka-dotted but very sexy Sheer Top over a black slip dress just so you don’t disappear entirely? add some stealth off-white boots and a beaded transparent bag and your back incognito. speaking of incognito — if you’re dining solo how about reading jennifer egan’s The Invisible Circus?

there’s something just so soothing about a romantic bathroom. vintage clawfoot tubs take bubble baths to a whole new level, and hardwood and rustic stone floors always look smashing. as you can see from this roundup of bathrooms, it doesn’t take a lot to create the look — if you’ve got the vintage tub you’re a step ahead of the game, but simply add some Moroccan bath towels, some vintage paintings, mirrors, and lighting and you’re well on your way to having a romantic bathroom of your own. it’s all in the details — i love the idea of sea fans, coral and a palm frond or two. brass fixtures add a nice touch too. okay, now that we know what we’re doing, let’s have a soak, shall we?

picture this: the female form.

the beautiful female form — she comes in all colors, shapes and sizes. and since so many of us are trying to embrace ourselves wholly, what better way than to pay homage to the female form? artists have been depicting her beauty since the dawn of time and some are most inspiring — like the one and only Henri Matisse, and contemporary artists like caroline walls, Kenesha Sneed and emma cutrie. but it’s all so subjective — what forms you find beautiful, but all are to be celebrated. here’s a look at past and present and some goddess-like art you might like to inspire you at home.
