Quick Picks – Week 21, 2013

Quick Picks

Here’s this week’s quick pick of internet finds. As usual, good things come in threes…


The winter issue of Queensland Brides is out. It has country and vintage inspiration, the ultimate guide for the bridal party, and a guide to designing or choosing your engagement ring.

With temperatures dropping in Brisbane, the Knot Australia’s guide to finding a Winter Wedding Gown is well-timed.

If you’re looking for inspiration for something a little different for your wedding favours Polka Dot Bride might have the answer.

Art & Design

Safwat Saleem’s coupled series is wonderful. Yet more art to add to my wish list.

Artist Boey proves that anything can be a canvas with his drawings on coffee cups.

Jenn Shifflet’s Light Drifts paintings play around with the kind of light effects you see in photography.

Random Asides

Awhile ago I mentioned that we’ve signed up for the BBC iPlayer service, which has given us a whole world of British tv to discover. So this week I’ve been terrifying myself with an old series called Bedlam. For a girl who doesn’t like scary things, I’ve somehow managed to become hooked.

Design Sponge has been featuring a colour of the day, this week they included Magenta, a colour that is featuring heavily in my life right now.

Electric bikes go super stylish with Cykno.

That’s it for another week’s quick picks. Have a great weekend!
