Objects of Our Affection

It’s that time of year again, when the shops are stuffed to bursting with sickly-sweet cards, fluffy cupids and heart-shaped chocolates. Yep, it’s Valentine’s Day, and although we are supposed to be directing our affections toward someone rather than something, we can’t help but get distracted – there are some lust-worthy objects hitting the shops that are dragging our eyes away from those heart-shaped chocolates. Here’s a few beautiful things that are capturing our attention this week…

Coralie Bickford-Smith designs the most lust-worthy jackets around, and these delicious-looking books from Penguin’s Great Food collection are no exception. Swoon at the mouth-watering colours and intricate patterns – and possibly the delicious food described too. Maybe.


Spotted yesterday in Foyles on the Southbank were these eye-catching array of Don DeLillo covers from Picador. The pop of colour on the inside covers? J’adore!


THIS IS AMAZING. Suck UK have ensured that not only will you never lose your page again, but you will have a tiny book-house on your bedside table. Dare I say it? Cute. Possibly cuter than Clooney*.

What beautiful things are distracting you this Valentine’s week?

*After watching the BAFTAs, we can confirm that nothing is cuter than Clooney.
