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!
Chalet C7, a complete masterpiece in the Andes mountains in South America.
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!
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.
Willy Wonka-ish chimney, reaching up and away like his neverending chocolate factory-elevator.
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!
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!
Things in order, never fails to be appealing.
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.
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..).
As 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?
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!
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).
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.
10 Crosby Derek Lams ss-14 collection. Yes please, move into my closet.
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“…
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 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).
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.
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…
Buzzing streets versus tranquil rooms.. I’ll have both.
The sort of soothing, never changing views of New York.
The ultimate rotation spot: bed – computer – bath – bed.
This photo just reminds me so much of my childhood, kind of like: school is starting and the flower shops on the way are changing colors.
Let’s start of this back-to-work week with a I’d-rather-be-here series, otherwise known as The Nolitan Hotel in Soho, New York. Window walls, modest spaces with brilliant interior planning for that sort of carefree NY-life (that nobody lives but this is a blog, come on), chunky bathtubs right next to the bed and serene surroundings consisting of petit bakeries and plant shops. Packing my bag mentally. Found via The Style Crusader.
Sparkling, delicately structured corkscrew beads and tinsel-like gowns in deep midnight hues, when Style Bubble captures Christopher Kanes aw-13 collection, both in photos and words, I think the combination is wild. I just can’t help but blog-collect the photos directly and put them onto my own journal as if they were those stickers we 90s-kids collected carefully into our serious booklets and then traded with each other as if there was no tomorrow. Christopher Kanes collection could also be read as a little geared up for doomsday, with the combat camo-prints and glitter-like-there’s-no-tomorrow gowns. Anyways, who wouldn’t fight a couple of fashion battles in one of his feather pieces?
Window walls, not so great for your privacy but great in every other way.
Remember those strokes you made in like kindergarden and felt were just genius? Well turns out they were.
If you never empty your laundry basket, things will eventually start to grow out of it. And that can turn out pretty good, as shown here by Jennifer Causey.
Also, if you’re to OCD in your workplace, Zebras will move in. This too documented by Jennifer Causey.
Back to work means back to dreaming about out of this world-apartments while being stuck to you table, putting in “laundry”, “training” and “answer emails!!” unto your to do-list and taking care of zebras. Don’t worry guys, we’re in this together!
