Happy Monday: Links to love (the interior edition)

Olive Manna
I just discovered this shop this morning and ooo let me tell you I fell in love!  I am such a sucker for these vintage style interior stores.  In fact one day I dream of owning one myself!  My particular favourites are the fork and spoon bowls and the fantastic ceramic egg cartons.  Go and check it out!

The loft
Doesn't SF girl by bay always just feature the most beautiful homes?!  When I saw this stunning loft apartment I showed Nic and we decided that (along with our little beach house) we wouldn't mind living somewhere like this one day!  I particularly love those rough, white wash brick walls.

Old and the new
What can I say, this home is so me!  It has such a great combination of old and new, browns and bright colours.  I feel like it's important to have a home that looks like it has actually been lived in, and this post captures that perfectly.

At home with Isabel Wilson
Ok wait, THIS is my dream home!  Are you noticing a pattern here?  Old white wash bricks, lots of plants, mismatched vintage furniture and all sorts of random quirky pieces that have no purpose other than to look beautiful.

 Freunde von Freunden
This is one of those awesome websites where you get to have a really good nosey around the homes of artists and creatives from all over the world.  There are so many fantastic articles, interviews and photos on this site that I have really only just begun to scratch the surface!

Side note: I would say I spend about 80% of my 'internet' time browsing and drooling over peoples homes.  Not only is it a huge source of inspiration, but it has also helped me to become very clear on what my own personal style is.  If you have any website/ blog suggestions you want to pass on to me (because what I really need is more excuses to procrastinate, HA!) then  would surely appreciate that.
