Web watch: Sania Pell




1. Moco Loco

There seems to be a stackable theme going on at Moco Loco at the moment. The first thing that caught my eye was the very cool grid system desk, by Ying Chang. It’s under the design tab on the site (also do check out Architecture, Tech, Eco and Lightening tabs nestled there while you visit) and it’s fascinating. The gridded surfaces “offer a versatile alternative to the often expansive, static planes of archetypal furniture”. I just got desk envy. Damn.

2. Sania Pell

Flea market finds, that’s what Ms Pell loves, along with interior styling and lots of homemade and handmade stuff. This is a divine site to potter around in and prepare to be impressed, she just styled Elle’s Style Steal for the decoration magazine. There are some beautiful pictures on her blog of the snake’s head fritillary – Fritillaria meleagris. Oh, and speaking of photos, be sure to check her out on Instagram, some great shots from Sania there.
