al desko – a dandy desk suggestion

29 Mar

if like me you’re subject to the lunch-time tyranny of a pret sandwich and a little daydreaming while working through your break- yes, if you are an ‘al desko’ luncher- take a little moment to savour the beauty of this soane desk.

with its slender, foldable-looking legs, its leather top and battered steel drawers, doesn’t this desk make you want to pack up and go, setting off to wander the lands afar?

in the nicest possible way, it reminds me of the faux-safari hilarity of this mythical video-

but i love both the desk and the song nevertheless.

enjoy your lunch.

donegal dreaming

11 Feb

tonight i dream of being in genevieve mcgill’s sweet super 8 mm footage of the ethereally beautiful landscape in donegal.

the incipient summer ripeness; the sweet rolling hills, pregnant sky and the sea- what else is there to wish for?

watch this and listen to beach house’s sweet dream pop gila.

a little ode to that awesome patch of earth.
