Introducing … New Contributor Louise to This Is Glamorous

IF YOU FOLLOW ALONG on Instagram, you may remember a beautiful grid of tiny illustrations featured there nearly a year ago; they were done by Interior Designer & Illustrator, Louise, who is currently based in Edinburgh. After the pleasure of a few lunches and cosy chats over wine in favourite pubs, it became clear that Louise would be a wonderful addition to This Is Glamorous and recently made her debut as Interiors Editor.

Read her articles on Gustavian stylebeautiful pink rooms to fall in love with, and most recently, an At Home With featuring Melissa Odabash, if you have not done so already. We are thrilled to welcome Louise as part of the TIG family and know you will love her work as much as well do.

And in other exciting news, some of your very favourites from shop.thisisglamorous.com & Belgrave Crescent are back and available for Pre-Order . . .

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

DO YOU REMEMBER that feeling where you’ve been working toward something for so long, that once you’ve finally accomplished it, instead of feeling excited and celebratory, you’re in a bit of a haze and utterly exhausted? Well that was how things were this past weekend, but (happily) not for long, for after there was time for what actually happened to sink in a little, we began feeling a little more relaxed than we have in ages and did end up having a really wonderful weekend.

One of the most radical and important ideas in the history of physics came from an unknown graduate student who wrote only one paper, got into arguments with physicists across the Atlantic as well as his own advisor, and left academia after graduating without even applying for a job as a professor. Hugh Everett’s story is one of many fascinating tales that add up to the astonishing history of quantum mechanics, the most fundamental physical theory we know of.

The minimal straight lines and sharp edges of modern interior design are giving way to curves, rounded corners, softer forms and sensual, sculptural shapes.

Rotund, portly pieces in the new neutral shades of shades of peach, blush, olive, taupe and tobacco have been taking over are screens and feeds this autumn, filling them with softness and warmth. You can follow this trend with smaller sculptural pieces as well, such as pottery and ceramics, globe lamps, cylindrical ottomans, and handmade bowls.
