Woah, it has been some time since our last Hot Hue post! With Min's wedding on the horizon and us pouring over bridal magazines and websites, we have been enamoured once again by the purest of colour, white.
There is just something so addictive about the colour. With the temperatures rising in our homeland, crisp and fresh white makes us feel less irritated and more serene. Whenever we start feeling sticky and warm due to the impossible humidity, we always get the urge to touch everything and anything that boasts of the clean and cool hue, hoping that its lightness will give us some relief. Colour therapy works in the funniest ways.
After almost a year(!) since our first ever Hot Hue post was published, we revisit one of our all-time favourite colours again and show you some white-coloured items we have been loving and lusting over.
1 // Minna Parikka White Leather Bunny Trainers
Aww! These trainers are way too adorable. Cute bunny ears and pink fluffy tail on a pair of trainers will totally complete my life right now. Everyone needs a pair of cute trainers in their lives to perk up their day, so how can anyone say no to them?
2 // Kaico Japanese Enamel Kettle
I have absolutely no use for this kettle but I think I can come up with a reason why I need it. Its simple yet stylish design will make brewing my morning coffee (or tea) additionally joyous just by looking at it. Yay!
3 // Jellycat Candy Stripe Bunny
My friends know me as a bunny toy hoarder. Each Jellycat bunny is soft and cuddly and I love it to death. I think it is time for me to get a new Jellycat bunny (with candy stripe ears, no less) to join the family.
4 // Conrad Jon Godly “Hell 24” Painting
When Jia and I decided on white as our Hot Hue colour, a full white painting with white blotches of oil paint/thick acrylic immediately came to mind. I have been looking at interior ideas for quite some time now and I think a full white painting for my future home will be a stunning investment piece. Love it.
5 // Loeffler Randall Perforated Mini Industry Bucket Bag
White bags are one of my greatest weaknesses, They are just so pretty and even though they are a pain in the arse to maintain, I can't get enough of them. This Loeffler Randall bag is right up my alley with the perforated leather and tassels.
6 // Everlane The Leather Street Shoe
Omg, this was love at first sight. My heart instantly went pitter-patter pitter-patter when I chanced upon these leather darlings. It really is the epitome of luxurious+comfort+chic and is so perfect for daily wear. I would wear this with everything.
7 // Anthropologie Handcarved Lotus Bed
Another love at first sight find. I will march straight down to Anthropologie the very minute I need a new bed frame. I love how the carvings are so intricate, yet the bed does not look overly dainty due to the slightly raw finish. It is GORGEOUS!
8 // Anthropologie Ruffled Rim Side Plate
I have a thing for dinnerware. In my wildest dream, I have a storage room filled with one-of-a-kind plates and bowls. In reality, I would really love a kitchen filled with mismatching dinnerware. I love this side plate (and the whole set actually!) because it looks like a very modern and artisan version of traditional fine bone china crockery. It is elegant yet playful; I really love it!
