Rove Concepts

DHgate has all for travelling



...latest thrift shop find

WINKS - weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we've found and things we think you'll want to see. If you'd like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we'll link you. So what's in this week?

  • I love these. The Foradacaixa hand crank music boxes with their beautifully illustrated package and the unique tunes. Are You Lonesome Tonight,  La Vie En Rose, My Way, Valser D'Amelie. By Sílvia Silva and Sandra Gouveia of Loja de estar. Too cute and beautifully old school!



  • Saffron Marigold - bedding and linen hand printed, one magnificent inch at a time, using the traditional craft of wood block printing. Artisan made in India they are perfect for a soft feminine and floaty look this summer. My favourites? The shower curtains are so pretty!

  • The Bali faucet by GRAFF. Take a pump handle design from the 1800s and update it to modern day tapware. Look at that olive bronze finish. So earthy, so tactile.

  • Graphic love! Coordinate posters by Caroline Silfverling of I Love Design. She can customise too! Here. Stylish and just a little retro. Love her other posters. View more work on her blog.

I'd coverting this hallway with it's wide aged wood plank floor, the wonderful blue walls and especially that bench. Talk about yum! The Eastward bench (and the chair for that matter) by Thos. Moser is on my lust list. With it's references to the past it would look just as cool in a minimalist modern interior. Just want to rub furniture oil into it over and over .... oh pardon me too much information!


David Meredith

While I'm sitting by the pool enjoying yet another sangria, how about a little non-alcoholic enjoyment for all of you in the form of the photography of the talented David Meredith.



Brian Park


An email was sitting in my box this week from photographer Brian Park. Brian has always been generous with keeping us up to date with his work. Glad he does because Brian has a new website featuring shots for the book Restoring a House in the City by  former House and Garden editor Ingrid Abramovitch. After devouring them online I'm off to order the book. Yum! Can't wait to turn the pages. Brian's work is stunning. You can see our previous posts here and here.








Some recent favs...

...from Hus & Hem. Or I could have titled this post "How to whip up a quick post to keep for while I'm in Mexico".



Douglas Friedman


The last time we featured Douglas Friedman's work a few comments popped up revealing that not only are his photographs gorgeous but he's a looker too. (I think the word was hot.) Having googled for photos of Douglas I can now confirm the veracity of the comments but more importantly ;) it's obvious from these new shots that Mr Friedman is still one super talented snapper. Favourites? The minimalist white rooms that thanks to the wonderful lighting are warm and inviting. The man has a fabulous eye!
