So ages ago the blogger duo WorshipBlues posted a shelfie challenge and show off the items bloggers have on their shelves at home. Since I’m currently moving out of my flat I thought it was the perfect time to snap a few pictures and remember the items that have decorated my space over the past year.
The Story of The Streets has been on my bookshelf for the past few years and having followed Mike for well over a decade his story is very personal and inspiring to me. The era of The Streets is over but things such as Tonga and his recent productions on Soundcloud show that this mans creative juices are still flowing.
New York architecture & design guides from teNeues are some of my favourite things in the world. The little square guides are perfect for travel and are really addictive to collect as they cover a number of cities from around the world.
Jordi Huismans ‘Rear Window’ photo series is one of my favourites and I covered it in great detail last year in one of my posts. As a fan of night and architecture photography Jordi manages to capture both in a unique setting across several well known European cities.
My invite to Eric Fischl: Art Fair Paintings exhibition last year. Even though it’s completely ironic to have this on my shelf considering the nature of the exhibition, the theme has really struck with me and who can really justify why you prefer a certain piece of art over another.
Fourth & Main are one of the original magazines and brands that inspired Style Division. Their initial publications were very limited in number and although they were very raw in nature, their love for the craft seeped through the pages. I keep the original 2 issues around as a continuous source of inspiration.
The special edition boxset of Above & Beyond’s ‘We’re All We Need’ is complete with my very own polaroid snaps from around London. Exploring Camden with my little sis and enjoying some Michelin star dining experiences with S.Pellegrino are small memories that are always worth treasuring.
My reading list: if you’re terrible with your money make sure to read ‘The Richest Man In Babylon‘, to get your creative juices flowing and come up with some unique ideas ‘Contagious‘ is the key and if you’re into science and neurology then Kurzweil’s ‘How To Create a Mind‘ is sure to eat up your evenings. Also here are some postcards I picked up on my trip to Venice. Cats are hilarious across any language right?
So what did you think? Want to know more about the items on my shelf? Feel free to leave me a comment below. And what does your shelf look like? I hope you put your own collection together, it’s a relaxing way to spend a few hours.
