INSIDE: spring is sprung
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 2/27/2008

SAL: Well, maybe it might be a bit of a stretch to say it’s Spring already in February, but it was a gorgeously sunny day here in Southern California and I can’t help getting carried away. Pottery Barn’s Spring collection has some really pretty colors and designs coming out. This bedding is fresh and bright, the design reminds me of some of the illustrations from Amenity Home, but I prefer these colors don’t you?

HARRY: Well…we have been rather absent. I am sorry about that. Seems life can sweep you away at times and there’s very little you can do about it.

First - welcome Meredith. I love the wallpaper. And I can’t wait to see what else you find. And welcome back also to Sal. I want to see some pics from the Cuba trip!

As Sal hinted, I have taken a full time job - as editor of one of my favourite design and architecture magazines, Belle. One of the things I need to do is get their website up and running so all I can do is send you to the subscription page. You’ll have to get a hard copy! It’s a beautiful magazine, staffed by a small talented dedicated team and I feel privileged to be there. Seven years ago my boss at the Sydney Morning Herald left to work at ACP (who publish Belle). At the time I told him the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to edit in Australia is Belle. Amazing how things pan out!

So I will take a step back from HarryandSal. I’ll send Sal and Meredith stuff I know you guys will love. And I really look forward to getting some new voices on the site.

Thanks to all you readers who have been so positive and supportive. Sal and I love what we do. Keep reading and definitely keep sending us your wonderful tips!

Ciao for now.

WEAR: simplicity
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 2/22/2008

SAL: Thanks to Peggy Li for sharing with me her wonderful creations. The work of this San Francisco-based jewelry designer has been seen on Grey’s Anatomy, Oprah and more - her pieces are simple, elegant and affordable. I’m very into silver and gold right now, but I’ve been limiting myself to ad hoc combos that usually involve me getting at an old pair of earrings with the pliers and adding them to a new chain to mix things up a bit - so this piece above really appealed to me.

UPDATE: where we’re at
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 2/22/2008

SAL: Firstly an apology dear readers for our woeful lack of posting of late. I have been traveling (Cuba would you believe!), Harry is in the throes of a fabulous new job (I’ll let her tell you all about it) and life has been a little crazy!

The good news is we’re expanding here at Harry and Sal to include guest bloggers - as you can see from our fun pal Meredith’s snazzy post below. So if you’re interested in joining the crew - send us a note! There’s no financial reward, just the touchy-feely warm glow you get from being a part of our design-inspired family and a platform to espouse to the world your thoughts on what’s hot and what most certainly, is not.

INSIDE: the uk is aok
Posted by Meredith Alexander on 2/20/2008

MEREDITH: Hello out there in Harry and Sal land. My name is Meredith and I have a little site called The Acme Sharing Company which is a place to find family activities that teach kids about giving back. SO, needless to say, I don’t get to blog about my favorite yummies; toys, books, gifts, furniture, etc. Now, here is my chance, thank you Sal!

In honor of Sal’s heritage, I wanted to share with you the most fabulous Lizzie Allen wallpaper. I think these palace guards would work in both a traditional playroom or a super funky modern nursery. Being an anglophile and all around wannabe Brit, I am thinking that, for me, this might just be overkill since I have already hung Union Jack flags in my son’s room in lieu of curtains. God Save the Queen!
