Où Coco Est?

Eagerly anticipating English release of Coco Before Chanel into theatres in September (why does France get it a whole 6 months beforehand? No fair). Incorporates 3 of my favourite things: Audrey Tatou, the French language and France in general, and Madame Chanel - one of my 'when-I-grow-up' heros.

Indoor Bugs that Don't Gross Me Out

Found on the lovely VT Interiors Library blog, these wallpaper designs by interior designer Brad Ford. Apparently they are from his site, though I couldn't find them when I went for a looksee. 
Slightly reminiscent of Timorous Beasties, sans overt subversiveness.

Jan Fyt's Dead and Beautiful

Not being a fan of still life paintings in general, I never really spend much time looking at them. But these by Jan Fyt (Flemish, 1611–1661) are captivating. I'm not sure exactly what it is I find fascinating, but the subject is as beautiful as a portrait. These images found on the Met Museum online collection database.
