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!

Früute, Tauba Auerbach and pillow fights

Friday, November 8th, 2013

The most amazing cookie photography/packaging, by Früute.

0228 Untitled (Fold)-Tauba-Auerbach-large

Tauba Auerbachs enigmatic light and color combos.

68e88881c57d00e6d92fd907265b8553

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.

Palais de Tokyo, Pink apples, Overly ordery

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

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.

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.

grey white interior

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..

Anders Krisár, Derek Lam and Sakura

Monday, September 9th, 2013

derek-lam

10 Crosby Derek Lams ss-14 collection. Yes please, move into my closet.

anders-krisar3

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

pattern

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

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

8104168402_6175db49a1_o

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

lv-fw13-lolitas

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

_mg_7356-large1

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

_mg_7007-large1

Kind of like dining in a museum?

_mg_7030-large1

Probably a place where everyone plans on leaving last.

_mg_8407-large1

Ultimate louinging area after a genius food coma.

_mg_8165-large

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

_mg_8379-large

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…

The Nolitan Hotel, NY Soho

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

n-c_balcony

Buzzing streets versus tranquil rooms.. I’ll have both.

dsc_3617

The sort of soothing, never changing views of New York.

dsc_4360a

The ultimate rotation spot: bed – computer – bath – bed.

dsc_3744

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.

Jennifer Causey, NY, Laundry

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

apt

Window walls, not so great for your privacy but great in every other way.

strokes

Remember those strokes you made in like kindergarden and felt were just genius? Well turns out they were.

tree

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.

table

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!

Celine, Irby Pace, Ye Rin Mok

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

celine

Some dots, boots and pastels that are free to move into my closet anyday by Celine f/w-13.

s24

Dreamy smoke bombs by Irby Pace.

And this house of “acid modernism” photographed by the amazing Yen Rin Mok is just out of this world.

pageimage-513531-4029777-5649

Getting ready for fall with this photo collection of minimalism meets surrealism meets mother nature kind of series. Imagine living in that house wearing all Celine f/w-13 and welcoming guests with pastel smoke bombs.. Now that would most definitely feel kind of swell.

& other autumns

other-stories

Good morn’! I’m back from the holidays just like everyone else in Stockholm, answering mails (aka sweating/biting nails) and getting back to regular routines. This is what I was up to yesterday, being the last day of life (sorry: last day of vacation) and all. At least internet is working… Wifi really is my top Maslow priority for feeling ok. Now let me just google the diagnose on that and get back to you!

Oh Proenza (and Marc)

marc jacobs

Umbrellas that make rainy days seem delicate, by Marc Jacobs.

proenza shouler new york

Photo from Proenza Schoulers Madison Avenue/New York store opening (found on their slick facebook page).

proenza

Proenza Schouler spring 2013. More of a fall collection I think but incredibly lovely either way.

I’m in Mallorca, i’s 30 degrees and so humid one could easily melt down the balcony along with all the excess sunlotion and donut-glazing this place is covered in. But still, I’m totally in the mood for Autumn. Well how can one not be after a glance through Proenza Schoulers recent looks. And these are the Spring 2012 ones.. Imagine the fall pieces. Or, see them for yourself in their über artsy fall campaign right here.

J Choo and J Frank

jimmy-choo-leja2

Pretty Leja-sandals by Jimmy Choo, looks a bit like Alaïas with those fuller straps.

Modern transparent table meets classic stucco fireplace.

yellow

And a pretty, yellow Josef Frank-ish print.

A small series of yellow hues, from bright gingko to dusty aspen.

Tulle and palms

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

red fabric

back garden

Bright red tulle curtains that make the terrace appear as if it’s dressed in an exquisite evening attire is a nice idea I think. The drapes could easily be all white or pale light blue, the effect is so dramatic and airy. And I love that secret looking back garden, really makes me wonder who lives there and what they’re like. Probably someone with ivory silk slips that drinks french press coffee and smells like bergamot.

Tin foiling / Bauhaus bias / Autumn knockings

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

tumblr_lzgvhht97a1qj4hwqo1_1280

Tin foil eye make-up (from Chanel I think?).

tumblr_mqcqjyfpuf1rolzgko1_1280

Rampant backyard through the most modernist hallway.

tumblr_mj0aj8o0tn1qmfnz6o1_500

Mojitos! The best drink, right?

tumblr_mqg8kitevr1r01xumo1_500

And a reminder to self to wear white open heels while the weather still allows it.. :(

Neither tin foil eye-makeup or mojitos are going to protect us from Autumn. But it’s pretty in pics and that’s all we need for now, don’t you think? There’s at least one month to go of strappy sandals anyways!

Breakfast at Celines

Monday, August 12th, 2013

silk scarf

Just the sweetest dotty silk scarf on the prettiest Celine bag.

tea cups

If I take one cup from every porcelain collection of my grand mothers and put them like this, I think that would be the end of me. Or her. Best not to do it.

classics

Classics, sort of the LBD of pumps. Also known as: gimme’.

Dots, blacks and cups are on my mind this monday. Have I got a busy intellectual life or what?
