Aitch is an illustrator originally from Romania, now living in Portugal. Her work is influenced by nature and folklore and reminds me of the ancient Hunt of the Unicorn tapestries.
Check out her website here.
I am going crazy over these incredible gold wreaths. They are from various historical periods including ancient Macedonia, Greece, Egypt, and Bulgaria.
I am very excited to properly introduce our latest contributor. Géraldine Mahé is the founder and editor of a great french garden, landscape and architecture blog BUD UP. It’s awesome to have a contributor all the way from Paris.
Hermès Rooftop Garden by Géraldine Mahé
The perfumer of the house of Hermès, Jean-Claude Ellena, has a long relationship with gardens. He has chosen four special gardens to inspire the creation of four special perfumes. The first a secret Mediterranean garden hints of orange and fig trees. The second, inspired by a garden on the nile of Egypt smells of roses and mangoes. The third comes from the idea of a garden in India after the monsoon – fresh, lemon-scented and spicy.
The final perfume is inspired by the Hermès garden itself. The garden is located sur le toit – on the roof – of the Hermes head office on rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré in Paris. The perfume reflects the three main trees of this garden, magnolia, pear and apple. In the video below the head gardener Yasmine and Jean-Claude give a little tour of this special space (in French!).
The striking home of Italian home wares maker Maurizio Zucchi. The height of the ceilings and plants along with the flooding of natural light make this a very appealing space.

IT. is the clothing label lovechild of Paris based German designer Isabell Thrun. The spring/ summer 2014 collection entitled Blütezeit has a strong floral focus. I put together a flower crown for her lookbook which you can checkout below. Head to her online shop to buy a handmade piece (my personal favourite is the Muscari).
And a big thank you to the beautiful Mariëtta for introducing me to Isabell and so many other wonderful people in Paris.
