Weekly Finds № 49


This week's discoveries and links, starting with:

01 Meli Melo: Established in April 2005 by Melissa Del Bonoasa, in London, UK, Meli Melo is a British handbag label, with Italian heritage and lasting quality. Today, the company designs, develops and produces luxury leather handbags for premium retailers and discerning customers worldwide—including Olivia Palermo.

02 A.House, by No Coffee Architects: This intriguing project included the careful restoration of an 18th Century Colonial House and the refurbishment of its stable buildings into contemporary and functional offices. The heritage of the estate was carefully preserved and taken care of, with the restoration of the existing wood structure and addition of modern day elements. Indeed, even the new mechanical, electrical, AC, data services, and equipment have been carefully concealed to retain the authenticity and spatial quality of these beautiful historic structures.
























03 Catherine, of La Mémoire Vive, shared a favorite traditional dessert: clafoutis
04 Amanda, of Lace & Tea, featured an inspirational industrial pink loft
05 Via Notcot, a beautiful classic piece: the all-new Hermès pocket watch
06 Cecilia, of Desde my Ventana, showcased a vibrant home of art & nature
07 Caitlin, of Sacramento Street, featured Michele Janezic's workspace
08 On Pinterest, a fantastic combination of pieces

Plus, a special thank you to the lovely Mariette!

  1. The bags are beautiful and they come in such a beautiful colour palette. And the attention to detail in that house is incredible, I had to look twice to take it all in, especially that amazing staircase and all the decorative objects displayed there. Have a wonderful week, Sarah!

    1. Oh, that is wonderful Francine—thank you so much! I was so impressed with their projects, deciding which to feature was rather difficult, in the end!

      (and the handbag, yes, definitely a bit of an investment, and so beautiful!) x

  10. Lovely LInks Sarah,, Love those stunning bags - but I can't decide which I like best - I had to scroll back and forth a couple of times but still to no avail - perhaps a different one for every day? And that Hermes pocket watch - how absolutely stunning and delicate. The outfit on pinterest is perfect too! Hope you're having a lovely week. :)

  11. cheap louis vuitton handbags are fast becoming the go to bag for every fashion conscious woman out there; omega watches for sale are definitely the personification of affordable luxury, a concept gifts for girls is huge in the fashion industry. They are basically luxury leather goods, mostly rolex datejust watches and wallets of the highest quality. Coach designer handbags offer among others strong, soft, and durable leather catier love. The coach designer handbag is also so unbelievably priced, it has been termed as mens jackets unexpectedly low; first for the outrageously priced high fashion world.
