Crate & Barrel

In many of the malls that there is an Anthropologie, there is also a Crate & Barrel. Their look for Autumn 2013 is very fresh and inspiring, with the main colours being greys and yellows, that are lit up by some statement glass and pottery pieces in reds, oranges and blues. Here are some shots from the store in Westchester NY : 

A few Halloween bits :

Lou Reed 1942 - 2013

Such a sad day to hear Lou Reed passed away, a great pioneer of rock through from the Velvet Underground and his time spent with the brilliant Andy Warhol to the present day. Always his own man, always an innovator, he went his own way and could never abide fools. So many great songs left behind like Sweet Jane, Heroine, Waiting For My Man, Vicious, Walk On The Wild Side, Satellite of Love, Perfect Day, and the classic album Transformer.

Tribute to Lou Reed

This song is Sweet Jane from his Velvet Underground days, it's live and sounds just as good today, it is the essence of Rock & Roll :  

He collaborated a lot with David Bowie, they made Transformer together. This is Waiting For The Man live at David Bowie's 50th Birthday Party : 

A live recording from the 80's of Lou and his band doing Walk On The Wild Side : 

Thanks for all the great music !

Anthropologie September 2013

Got back from a sales trip to the US two weeks ago, and had chance to get into some of the stores while I was there, and see what was on offer this Autumn !

Anthropologie always manage to keep re-inventing themselves, this years colours and prints are really bold, especially on the products for the home.

Here are some photo's from their stores in Framingham and Westchester :

It's always a little pricey in there, but at least you are getting something you are not going to find anywhere else. They do have a big sale room in every store so it is easy to pick up a bargain in there !

West Elm : Earlier This Year !

The trouble with missing weeks on the blog is falling behind with current shop reports ! These photo's were taken in the West Elm shop in Salt Lake City a few months ago, but the look is still very relevant, with lots of greys and geometrics that are also there for this autumn too !

Such well thought out design and so well priced too !
