The Friday Five: Travel Accessories

As I’ve been travelling for the last two weeks, I thought I would devote today’s Friday Five to lovely white travel items.

1. First on the list is a beautiful travel journal. Jot down addresses of those special restaurants and sketch your beautiful surroundings in one of these lovely little books.

Hello Lonny!

If you haven’t already heard, issue 4 of Lonny magazine is now online. Lonny’s many pages are full of delightful interiors, interesting articles, and great art. I’ve been a fan since issue 1 and although I still prefer the texture of magazines (as in the ever-popular Domino), Lonny has been a wonderful addition to my online reading adventures.

Here are some of the white pieces I bookmarked as I “flipped” through the pages of this online treasure.

Elsa Peretti thumbrint bowl, $175, Tiffany & Co.

White flower stool, $390, Green with Glamour

Pail, $22, The Laundress

Shag pouf, $385, Calypso

Ostrich brush, $60, Caldrea

Globo di Luce pendant (in silver), $93-$1332, Design Within Reach

Folding bird house, $50, MOMA

Ceramic countertop compost pail, $32, Williams Sonoma

Many of these products come in other colours so if you’re not in love with white (gasp!) then you might want to check out the other options.

Moroccan Wedding Blankets

I am loving the sparkles on this Moroccan wedding blanket from Table Tonic. This Australian online store also carries the most delightful hand embroidered Mexican suzanis in all the colours of the rainbow. I’m most drawn to the white blankets and pillows…of course. Louise, of Table Tonic, is continuing to bring in new items, so be sure to check back often.

The Friday Five: Pens

This week’s Friday Five is all about one of the most useful writing instruments. During this time of iphones, blackberries, gps, twitter¬†and email, some tend to push the good ol’ pen to the sidelines.¬†Nothing beats a good pen when you have to write down a¬†phone number, an address or a note to a friend. Today I feature some striking white pens that look equally good in your pocket, purse, and most importantly, in your hand!

Leman Blanc, Caran D'Ache

White Desk Pen, $19.95, Paper-Source

Premium Rollerball Pen, AUD$19.95, Kikki K

Uniball Broad Pen, AUD$5.95, Kikki-K
