Cotton candy coat

pink hm coat trend autumn 2014

For someone who is ridiculously interested in fashion, I’m the worst shopper. I always end up with buying nothing. I know some people would disagree (my father and grandmother among others) but I find myself always being so picky I can’t find anything. That’s why when I really obsess over an item, I’m the happiest you ever saw when I finally get it.

This pink, cotton candy-ish alpaca-wool coat from H&Ms trend collection that I got today is my ultimate love-purchase this winter. It’s sooo dreamy. I just want to spray it with sugary sweet-perfume and go lie down and take a nap in it. It goes so well with black tight Mouret-dresses and bare legs (well, in spring then..). It’s lovely, until it rains. But that wouldn’t happen, right?

Borrowed the photo of the coat here.

Happy Holidays!

PARIS_photos1 PARIS_photos2

I wish this was a collection of my own since I would just love to get away for a couple of days but the lovely collage is by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper. I hope you’re having some great days off, I’m doing my best to relax but having worked all through december, the pile of clothes that needs to be cleaned and stuff that has to be done has just been growing.. December is nice but I can’t wait for January and a fresh new start!

Friday fur, fur, fur and other stories

Faux fur I mean. Like on these by & other stories.

Who dosen’t love a giant disco ball next to lot’s of foolscap?

The photos at & other stories always feel so alluring and contemporary, I just can’t resist them. They really put their clothes and accessories in different stories, one more enthralling then the other. I don’t know, I just find them super inspiring. Makes me want faux fur sandals, as if I needed that…

With that said – happy friday!

Chilly blue: meet dusty grey pink. Don’t remember which collection the look is from, please tell me if you know :)

If a location could be poetry, this would be it.

Bubbly floor lamps by Bauhaus-designer Max Bill.

Light snow sheets, long skirts, expressive chairs, tucked in mountain houses and playful lamps. It’s as if we’re on a modernist excursion some 2990 meters above sea level. Oh, the joys of blogging!

Früute, Tauba Auerbach and pillow fights

The most amazing cookie photography/packaging, by Früute.

Tauba Auerbachs enigmatic light and color combos.

The sort of pillow fights that should not just be reserved for films and kids under 8.

Friday! The weeks are rushing past in such an unbelievable pace, I can’t believe we’re almost half way through november.. In Stockholm, everything is pitch dark by five in the afternoon, there are no more (fresh) flowers in the marketplace and the stores have snowflake decals on their displays. It’s ok though, I like this time of year. At least if you’re well-rested. Otherwise, I’m in coffee-poisioning-mode most of the day.

Flowery branch you nicked from a garden on your way home on a friday in may (yup, a little summer sulk here).

Floor five with a luscious gold decal. My favorite floor, even if I’m not sure where it is or what the other floors are like.

Grey, white, black, marble floors and window ceilings. Only exists on Pinterest, but still!

Palais de Tokyo, Pink apples, Overly ordery

palais de tokyo

I love anything with a “Palais” in it’s name. It sound so soft and smooth, like a dessert almost. Much unlike the word Palace, or Palats in swedish which sound like some hard, unapproachable material or something gore-texy. The space above, Palais de Tokyo, was just born for the word I just dissected a tad too far. I want painted curtains as wallpaper when I see it!

lifestyle600014__landscape

Things in order, never fails to be appealing.

1238945_10151977268216754_1594687098_n

The strangest/cutest apples I found somehwere on instagram. Pink apple pie must be a winning dessert..

What does a Palais, a OCD-shelf and pink apples have in common? Well not much, except that they could all be part of a regular day and make it a little more peculiar just by being what they are perhaps.

Gourmet mouse traps and Clarendon

mouse trap

Such an amusing concept: Gourmet mouse traps. It is what it sounds like. I think some human beings, myself included, would easily become victims (especially if it involved strawberry shortcake..).

clarendon calenderAs I’m currently attending courses in typography and graphic design, I’m suffering from slight tunnel vision which may explain some posters and stuff appearing on Lolitas from now. The calender above is set in the 18th-century font Clarendon (used in old western wanted posters among other things). I think it’s pretty in all it’s boldness, don’t you?

http://www.huhmagazine.co.uk/5778/converted-london-studio

This kitchen is just too adorable with it’s dusty pink cupboards and diagonal checkered floor.. From a London studio I found right here.

So, saucy mouse traps, chunky typefaces and playful kitchens made for great meetings and delicious coffee breaks… These are some of the things in my inspiration-folders right now!

Long time no blog!

coffe and tea

bathroom

I’ve been the lousiest blogger. It’s a shame really, of all the things I like to do, blogging is up in the top of the list. That’s why I’ll give it a good ol’ november roll! Starting off with the ultimate “fika” (coffee and cake-time around three o’clock in Sweden) and the loveliest bathroom view. The pink cup is from Swedish Höganäs – I just love the tree plate underneath, makes it feel so cosy and wintery.

Yep, we’re of to a start! Talk to you soon then! :)

Napoleons supposedly flat. Quite a heavy sales point right there. If you’re into the the french revolution/large ships/pointy hats-thing I mean. I’m into the apartment for obvious reasons: huge open spaces, ridiculously pretty stucco and marble bath. And the dog. By Freak Architects (via Dezeen).

Grey, black and bokeh lights

tumblr_mma2zm6cbv1r7uruyo1_500

Continuing on this sentimental/suppressed theme with a series of grey-black-white photos from the genius tumblr Life on Sundays. We’ve got some cement-basing going on, some thick linen fabrics and a black kitchen that was probably born (well, made in non-interior terms) for minimalistic cooking. Can’t go wrong. Unless you’re baking macaroons, what with all the flour swirling around..

I couldn’t kill my darlings putting this together, but that’s just my regular response to visiting the Ann Street Studio. They just manage to capture every show at New York Fashion Week in the most enchanting way and I’m not sure if I’m watching the stills from a Sofia Coppola-movie or Delpozos Spring/Summer 2014-collection. Nothing wrong with that obviously, except for the slight overheating I experience inspiration-wisely. Oh, the luxe curse of an excellent blog like that.

Anders Krisár, Derek Lam and Sakura

Ander Krisár.. I’m so late on discovering his genius photos and sculptures.

Your typical regal Pinterest pattern. That’s what all our sources will probably sound like in the future – “Pinterest“…

hjartesmil-flickr

I’m remembering/celebrating Sakura blossoms in such a emotional way every autumn, as if Spring was ten years from now (the curse of living in Sweden!).

A collection of sentimental photos that resemble my current inspirations. Well, what else is new.. I’ve been a lousy blogger because of school/real life/work-starts and the whatnot. Just let me get into my routines properly and I’m on as always! Like.. tomorrow! :)

The NoMad NY and Louis Vuitton fw-13

The rain chatter on these windows must be sort of legendary.

Hailing a cab Louis Vuitton-style (nothing unpractical there).

Give me a bathtub by a window and I’m sold (obviously).

_mg_7007-large1

Kind of like dining in a museum?

Probably a place where everyone plans on leaving last.

Ultimate louinging area after a genius food coma.

And looking outside the window, suddenly you’re in Rome?

Ok phew, still in NY. That aged whiskey in the lounge was just playing some tricks then.

louis-vuitton-fw13

And then you head back to your room LV-style.

Continuing the hotel-series from yesterday by chance, a visit to Luxirare’s generated a new found inspiration and yearning for The NoMad Hotel in Manhattan. The interiors are dramatically cozy in that historical/magical way that one seem to crave every year around this time. It’s situated north of Madison Square Garden, in the historic NoMad neighborhood and houses a restaurant that seems to be as beyond as the hotel itself, judging from Luxirare’s documentation anyway. Now if one only had a booking and a Louis Vuitton fall/winter-13 closet to go with it…
