New Season Heroes and Villains

The Candy Files

What's hot, what's not and what's what at my place. This week…

House Candy = Batgirl

Yvonne Craig, one of TV's original feisty females died recently leaving a little pointy eared hole in my heart. I rediscovered the 1960s TV Batman series a few years ago when my son's superhero fixation had me searching the archives for caped crusaders. Craig's Batgirl was funny and fierce, not to mention something of a red-headed stunner. In her honour I’m hoping this best selling print from Bodie and Fou will remind me to always give good Kerpow!


Fine and Candy = Cat Woman

Julie Newmar as Cat Woman

Gothic black is everywhere this season and I will be exploring all kinds of ways to indulge in this interiors trend right here on the blog. Meanwhile, we are apparently enjoying a new post recession love affair with opulence home wise - so who better to look to for a bit of goth-ulent inspiration than everyone’s favourite feline, Cat Woman. 

Luxe fabrics, shiny metals, deep hues …




Candy Pandy = Superman Schemes

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s an 80s Memphis micro trend… And it could spell the end for colour popping as we know it. For me, what goes in Krypton stays in Krypton, right Clark?
