A while ago I came across some pictures by the Russian photographer Alexandra Bachkareva. Her luminous portraits show the natural beauty of freckles and I thought the images would be perfect for a book. Imagine my surprise when I found out a new coffee table book celebrating freckles is coming out in time for Christmas.
The Kinfolk Home is here. And it is beautiful, from front cover to back cover and everything in between. I highly recommend you get your own copy (because I’ve already drooled all over this one). Photos: Charlotte Coffey
After working on a few gallery walls lately, at home and for clients, I couldn’t help but noticing that this way of grouping art has made it into the stores as well. Here are two examples, showing slightly different styles; one from J Crew and one from Banana Republic in San Francisco. Who wore hung it best? Photos: Charlotte Coffey
