Watching Downton Abbey makes me think of Port. Thinking of Port reminds me of my trip to Portugal a few months ago and how crazy delicious the port wine was.
But that’s another post, as well as a glimpse into my thought process, which no, doesn’t always lead to alcohol.
This post is about Delft. Or perhaps I should say “Delft-ish” inspiration, as I don’t want anyone busting me on these images not being genuine Dutch Delft, a connoisseur of which I’m definitely not.
I do like me a good delfty object though and I can certainly appreciate how the blue & white of Delft can really make a room sing.
Or a bag. Like this Prada one.
During our say in Portugal we had the pleasure of visiting the lovely little town of Pinhao, where the rustic scenes of this gorgeous wine making region are represented on the walls of their quaint train station.
Delft certainly seems to be having A Moment, or am I the only one noticing?

I’m totally in love with these Delft On Acid limited edition tiles by South African artist Ruan Hoffmann available thru Cletile.com
and you can’t beat a spot of delft for old world charm, here mixed with great panache with dark wood, rough plaster walls and the sleekness of modern components.

Always gorgeous mixed with sea grass and large palm fronds, but then again, you had me at seagrass & large palm fronds…

I don’t know that I could put this much effort into graffiti that can just be licked off, you?
I guess that’s why I’m not a cake icing graffiti artist and Shelley Miller is.

My girlfriend admiring the gorgeous tiles of the Pinhao train station. I just noticed how her scarf ties in with the wall border.

OK, I’m off to yoga and then I might even treat myself to a spot of Port.
