Home Decor Inspiration | Our Top Five Follows

Just a couple of weeks ago we launched 'The Edit' arm to Love and Object - enabling lovers of the unique and covetable to purchase special objects for the home, in addition to the wardrobe.

The Edit is an ever-expanding collection of one-off vintage treasures (including this beautiful 1900s jewellery catch all and this very special crystal piece, just launched today), floral collaborations, limited edition artworks, uncommon gifts and alluring objets d'art.

In celebration of the new launch we've rounded up a few of our favourite instagram accounts of the interior persuasion that will be keeping us inspired over the weekend.

Tara Milk Tea 

For pretty pastel interiors and all things feminine.

Tara's feed is filled with an incredibly calming pastel palette and is a joy to dip into after a long day.  Based in Sydney, we love her dreamy take on design, but a word of warning, one look at her feed and you'll likely be craving sweet delights of the edible variety as much as the dreamy interiors.

If you find yourself a fan of Tara's aesthetic, too, you might just love our rare baby blue 1960s crystal candle lamp (centre). A very special piece for the mantel or bedside, watch it come alight with a simple tea-light candle, or use it as a sweet bud vase with fresh picks from the garden.  For when you've got company, our fine French Art Deco Glass Teacup and Saucer Set (top right hand corner) is also a favourite; just add cake x




Marie Ollson Nylander 

For eclectic pairings of old with new.

The Swedish interior designer and antiques collector has been a longtime follow, we love her taste for the perfectly imperfect - her unexpected pairings of antique items with more modern pieces encourage us to look at the objects we surround ourselves with in fresh new ways.

If you gravitate to this aesthetic, too, try our 20th Century Crystal Candlestick Holders (to the right) for a beautiful pairing on the mantel next to other found objects. For a lived-in, wintery mood, swap traditional white candlesticks for a deep plum or grey tone and let the wax drip build up over time.



Atelier Vime

For musings of a French design house based in an 18th century hotel.

Run by a British-French Stylist, a conservationist and a Parisian designer who previously worked for Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent and Cartier, Atelier Vime is reinvigorating the art of rattan, with their mix of contemporary and vintage designs. 

Run from a grand Provencal townhouse, their feed is consistently inspiring (and never not travel-bug inducing), with a fine mixture of collected antiques, vintage objects, and natural elements, including their own reworked pieces utilising hand harvested wicker from the past.  We love their dedication to sustainability without compromising on aesthetics, a value we are equally as passionate about at L&O.

For a mixture of old with new, and, of course, a sustainable twist, try our dried fleurs in vintage vases, in collaboration with Grace and Flora. The neutral palette of our Morning Light Arrangement in a 20th Century chalise-esque ceramic vase would be our pick (to the left); an everlasting arrangement that will stand the test of time (as long as you follow Grace and Flora's top preservation tips!).



Thank You Ok

For dreamy interior close ups with fluff-ball factor.

Run by stylist and creative director, Katie Merchant, Thank You Ok is the perfect page to visit whenever you need a little pick me up. A melange of Katie's work, self portraits. and residential interiors, her modern, pop-esque feed often features the adorable Jean Darlene, her British short hair cat. 

If you like this page, you might like our rare Art Deco Vanity Set in blue crystal (centre); a six piece set offering a myriad of styling and storage opportunities at home.




Sarah de Beaumont

For true lovers of the Italianate aesthetic.

As a stylist and set designer for AD Magazine, just one scroll through Sarah de Beaumont's page will transport you to Italy in an instant. A curation of her own work and the best of European design, as there's no sign of travel to our favourite part of the world anytime soon, we'll be checking back for updates on this page a little more than usual over the winter.

Our newly listed Aphrodite Shell Jewellery Dish (to the left) would look right at home in these beautiful sets, a Botticelli style jewellery catchall for a bedroom dresser or bathroom, circa 1900s. Shop here.


A little added bonus...

Musee Gustave Moreau

Speaking of being transported to Europe, for those yearning for gallery visits and a taste of Paris that would often be experienced in person at this time of year, we've been loving the way many of our favourite art galleries and museums have adapted to the times with plentiful content from within their (until recently) enclosed doors...

in particular, the infamous Musee Gustave Moreau has done a particularly wonderful job of making us feel as though we are standing right in the 9th in lieu of our own backyard...


Even though it's not quite possible to hop on a plane, if you feel like treating yourself to a little piece of Paris, here are a few of our favourite vintage pieces designed, made and hand-picked the city of love, and currently available as part of our special edit:

The Celine Triomphe Saddle Bag (to the right)- perfect for weekend sojourns spent gallery-hopping in the rain.

The Givenchy Onassis Necklace (to the left)- pair with a chunky cashmere knit to make your winter ensemble a little extra special.

The Christian Lacroix Romeo Earrings - to carry a little bit of love, wherever the day takes you.

Noughties Nostalgia | Our favourite looks inspired by fashion's newest vintage

2020 may have given us a rollercoaster ride in many ways so far, not least in the fashion stakes.

One benefit of the new decade? A new vintage has arrived, in the form of early 2000s bling. An era of rhinestone sparkle, perspex and OTT logos, what better way to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather with a little nostalgia for the noughties.
