Given that we are finishing off the work week it seems apt to do a round up of beautiful and interesting things.

The final season of Mad Men is in full swing and I’m really enjoying it so far. I’m curious how they are going to resolve everything. Don Draper’s daughter Sally, played by the actress Kiernan Shipka, has grown up significantly since the series first started. She is showing a flair for fashion off screen, evident in this feature for ES Magazine photographed by Nicole Nodlund and styled by Nicky Yates.






Going to try out this recipe for ginger roasted pumpkin and quinoa salad with mint, chilli and lime from My Darling Lemon Thyme. It looks delicious.

This packaging is so nice, I would buy it just for the aesthetics.


The Tiny Grand Budapest Hotel is a birdhouse-sized replica created by Clinic 212 of Wes Anderson’s eponymous Grand Budapest Hotel.



I love this tribute by New York illustrator Ben Wiseman to the painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte”, which was completed by French Post-Impressionist artist Georges Seurat in 1886.

This garage conversion by Graypants Inc. is a project I can really get behind. They managed to turn the structure into a light-filled space that really takes advantage of the amazing views.
