Around the age of thirteen I started feeling different. Other. I just didn't fit in. Of course, this made me a typical teenager - a fact that one of my high school teachers pointed out, offending me deeply. clearly, she didn't understand my pain. Just as clearly, irony was not my strong suit.

As I got older the feeling of not quite belonging lessened, but never left me. I moved to England from Mexico at sixteen and had the privilege of immersing myself in a completely different culture. This shattered a lot of my social  prejudices and allowed me to discover the beauty of  individuality and self expression. It was a heady and excting thing. I started listening to Indie rock. Robert Smith of the The cure became my hero.I wore Dr. Marten's tall boots and all black torn clothing. I read, visited art galleries and, eventually, landed in art school.

After years of studying Physics and History, art school fe...

One of my favorite things to do is search online for unique objects. During my free time, for hours on end, I obsessively search for something different, something special. There are some incredible creators out there and thanks to the internet and magical places such as Etsy, they are available to us wherever we are. 

Most of the time I will start by searching for something specific, but often I fall into a  rhythm where one search flows into another and I might find a great console table when I started off looking for some linen bedding. 

Occasionally during my internet sourcing I come across something that makes me catch my breath. More often than not it is a one off piece that just happens to be right for a certain space or the right shape and size to complete vignette. Often, it is just one amazing piece amongst others that don't grab me in the same way.

It is one thing to find the right object for a space, quite another to discover objects that you want to d...

There are some people you just click with. You have so much in common with them. They often share your point of view. They just get you. And you get them.

My community in the world of photography, style and interiors are just like that. Except they are not my friends yet. They don't even know I exist. I follow their careers, opinions work and and lives online, via social media and through their companies websites.

So in this blog I will feature my nearest and dearest imaginary friends. The ones I admire the most. They inspire and encourage, like good friends should. Maybe one day I'll get to meet them.

All Photographs in this post by Elizabeth Kirby.

Today's imaginary friend is Elizabeth Kirby. She is a photographer, stylist, creative consultant and blogger. In her website she speaks about being inspired by the imperfect (see? She gets me!) and the mundane, wanderlust, the art of slow living and light. She also speaks about her love of farmers m...

Imperfect is beautiful. I love that line. It reminds me of the slightly puffy eyes that my son inherited from my husband, who hates them and every so often overcomes his inherent British male-ness and asks me if I have some eye cream that can minimize them. I love them. I especially love them in my son. When he smiles, they puff up just a little bit more, making him look both wise and impish. They are one of the many unique, delicious, sweet things that make him.....him.

I believe that whilst we may admire perfection, and even yearn for it, we don't love people, or things, because they are perfect. We love them because they are who or what they are. So when we started building the Hapeman Hill website, we wrote it down. One of the first phrases on the home page, central to our design philosophy :

" We believe imperfect is beautiful"

It proved to be unexpectedly polarizing. "Why would I buy into something that bills itself as imperfect?"..."Love it - that's exactly it..." ...."what do y...
