Hybrid moments


For Christmas this year Robert was particularly shnaky. He delved into the search history on my laptop and found my over-zealous creeping of all things iBride [pronounced like the French for hybrid]. Back in June of 2015, two particular items Robert found were ibride's Rosita and Isild trays. There was much clicking. Fast forward to Christmas morning and what did I spy under the tree? Only just these two birds. Without sounding too dramatic, I think it took a full 3 days for me to realise these trays were in my possession and that they were for real.  



I don't like the idea of gloating about things I got for Christmas, but these are too damn fabulous to not [p.s. Robert and I got just one present for each other this year. Well, mine was actually two, but you know what I mean. This year was very paired down]. In a strange and not-so-strange way, these two trays have a very special meaning for me. They're reminding me to get back to what I love about interiors and that's about having fun with design and to take things less seriously. I think back to how our apartment was before I started putting it online, and how my past bedrooms in my parents place looked before then. They were unusual, a bit fun and had unexpected things dotted around the place. They weren't too dissimilar to what I have now, but I have noticed as of recently I'm missing the fun. I've gotten too bogged down with the "will this look good?" side of things. 

So here's to Rosita and Isild - reminding me to get back to the fun side of design and to be less serious [as if I even was all that serious to begin with].

  2. I am unbelievably impressed by Robert's sneaky tactics!!! He is a good one, that boy! You must have been so surprised and excited when you opened them!
    Looking forward to seeing more fun design touches - although I think you've got a few of those... like your cross-stitch of the QR code, your little sign for the cats' food tray, and of course... your toilet cross-stitch! You are fun, girl! xx

    1. Since I published this yesterday, I went around the apartment, found some of my favourite things that have been in a cupboard for a couple of months (one of which hasn't been on display since we moved in. I don't know why!), so I took loads of stuff out and mixed things up a bit.

      It's so strange how you can slowly but surely loose sight of things. I guess I got too wrapped up in whether or not things were good / appealing. One things for sure, MOAR INAPPROPRIATE CROSS STITCHES!

  3. I don't even know where to begin with how freakishly awesome these are. I recently Photoshopped my friend's head on a cougar, but somehow I don't think this is in the same category. Ha!! They are beautiful and creepy and wonderful; kind of like you! Please take that as a compliment.

    1. I took it entirely as a compliment Wheele. Thank you! I do enjoy all levels of creepy prettiness. And this cougar Photoshoppery sounds hilarious! Oh I would have loved to have seen it.

      p.s. Have you seen Crimson Peak by any chance? Ultimate levels of creepy and beautiful. Or at least I thought! Not to mention that house ... Swoon.
