CREAM & WHITE

Longtime su reaL male house model, DAVID - bought for a steal in a treasure
shop in Sydney. Today David is wearing a vintage hat my mother wore.

CREAM & WHITE

I was rather touched this morning to be greeted so warmly by a lovely Indian gentleman – a hospitality employee I walked past on this crisp morning.  I think ‘strangers’ bond more readily when spying another member of the human species, at some unearthly hour... Great, genuine smile and compliments of the day.  His appearance was immaculate, and aesthetically I was particularly drawn to his pristine, white shirt with a plush, thick, cream knitted vest covering it – like a slab of milky bar chocolate, and divine against his radiant, dark skin.  I instantly remembered how I adore mixing various shades and quantities of cream and white together, so here are a few pics.
On the couch - 'SHEET MUSIC' - hand painted silhouette pillow of Mick and
Keith.
 
 
Silhouettes by su reaL atelier, with my daughter's painting of our cat -
Cameo Cream.
 
 
Hand knitted 'Graduation Collar' from the 'Intelligence Squad' range by su
reaL atelier. Mixing different shades of cream together creates more
texture.
 
 
My favourite vintage light shade. It's purely decorative at this stage
unfortunately!
 
 
Here's DAVID - silhouette style - by su reaL atelier.
 
Special gifts given to me by my children when they were really young. The
frames were another gift resourcefully made for me by a friend, using
off-cuts.
 
 
... and saving the best for last - the creamiest of them all - Mr Cameo
Cream himself!
