putting this together i realize what a hopeless dreamer i am, haha. oh well, just look at those beds on the balcony, i mean – how can one not be a dreamer seeing that? and who hasen’t wished there was a bed on the balcony on super hot july evenings.. super good idea. probably super unpractical too, like most dreams. but who cares, it’s a bed on a balcony!

such an awesome concept for baking. it still looks kind of yummy too. so random-looking and still probably so carefully put together. by arthur and alexandra.

most changes don’t really happen overnight and blog changes are no different. but next week the slightly altered layout will be up and then we’ll gradually move towards a better and hopefully improved blog! until then there is loads of apartments and spaces to enjoy, like the one above. it has some of my favorite attributes, huge windows, glossy floors, light wood furniture and the kind of organic balcony you could spend hours on doing just about nothing. the last photo is from a lovely berlin apartment, from freunde von freunden.

if you have have any more desires/ideas for the change, feel free to email them too lolitabloggen@hotmail.com. so far it’s been really helpful: thanks to all of you that have contributed!

Ch-ch-changes!

lately i’ve been thinking alot about Lolitas.se and some potential developments. i thought i would keep you updated about my thoughts and see if you have any ideas of your own. i really enjoy blogging, but would like to take it to the next level. the main idea is to turn the Lolitablog into more of an online magazine. still focusing on inspiration and beautiful photos but with some more content in the form of articles, columns by guest contributors and bloggers and also more concrete links and sources.

the categories would include, just like now; interior design and lifestyle, but also more about people (graphic designers, advertisers, architects etc) and more fashion, food and news in visual industries. in a couple of days i’ll put up the slightly edited blog layout (no big changes though) and then we’ll get going! what do you think about it all? do you have any ideas or desires that you’d wish to see more of? more tips about other inspiring sites? interviews with people that work in design to get your own design ambition-inspiration kicked going? or something completely new? i’m very open for suggestions and i believe this blog has got really smart and creative readers so i’m open to all ideas. just post them in the comment field below or email to:

geometry

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

soft pony tails, geometrical patterns and square plywood tables are some of the things i seem to like lately. perhaps it’s some kind of strive for harmony and structure or something.
