It has been a while since our last Pinspiration post. We are slowly getting back into the swing of things on our blog and reviving our regular columns after missing out on a couple of months' worth of posts. Monthly Pinspiration is one of our favourite columns as we tend to live on Pinterest! Pinterest is such a great space to explore and share ideas. Mmm, inspirations everywhere!
In the last couple of months, we have been very interested in searching for wedding ideas (no surprise), interior design ideas, colour combination schemes, and pictures of food, glorious food. Don't you agree that food pictures on Pinterest always look soooooo good? The food porn worthy pins could most definitely be credited to good camera angles, good lighting, or digitally enhanced images. Whatever the deal is, we see them and we want to eat them ALL.
Here is a selection of our favourite pins that caught and held our attention this month.
Min: My obsession with ceramics is real. I am constantly on the lookout for handmade ceramics and honesty, there's only so much space left in my kitchen cabinet. I contemplated taking ceramics courses but things at work got busy and I kinda forgot about it. On hindsight, I really should have just gone for it and I'll probably be in ceramics heaven now!
Min: I didn't use to like figs. But when I tasted my first ever fresh fig, my life changed. Where have you been all my life, figs? These fig bars look so decadent, I want to reach into my screen and grab them. Don't you just love the colours? My kind of tasty treat with a beautiful colour palette.
Min: When I was 18, I created a list of things that made me happy. On the list were important stuff like spending time with my dog and eating crispy folded potato chips. The first item on my happy list is to have access to an endless supply of avocado maki. I love rice and I love my carbs. No doubt about it. This picture stirred up quite a bit of commotion in my stomach after I saw it. I just gotta pin it, then eat it. Yums.
Jia: I think I just found my dream house, or at least, the ideal whimsical setting for one. Yes, I am talking about the magnificent blooming Magnolia tree. The photographer found this lovely scene in Notting Hill, London and I think I would have swooned on the spot if I were to stumble upon this gorgeousness.
Jia: I have been working on a pastel collection for the past month and the struggle is real. I don't naturally lean towards a pastel palette so I have been hitting up Pinterest for some pastel colour combination inspiration. The above biscuit styling shot is one of my favourites by far, as I simply love the combination of shades. So mod and stylish!
Jia: Another colour combination that I am loving this month! I also love the real-life application of the colours in the bathroom. The shades of aquamarine, white, and tan are so lovely together and I love the contemporary poppy vibe. It's a little 60s and a whole lot of yay!
