The Nolitan Hotel, NY Soho

n-c_balcony

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

dsc_3617

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?

Jennifer Causey, NY, Laundry

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

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

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

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

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?

Macaroon bathing and concrete buildings

hotel sea view

Concrete ceilings and floors look so attractive combined with this kind of all white, minimalistic interiors.

yellow

The Swedish flag on a foot! Anyhow, I just want the shoe..

ysl creamy lipstick

Light pink YSL for bright holiday mornings.

macaroon

The sort of kitchy bathing suit I would totally buy in the tourist shops if they had it instead of the dolphin ones.

sheets

And after a hard day like this, one just need some silk sheet rest, right?

Silly bathing clothes, tepid afternoons and unnecessary rests. I think it goes something like: there are places like home..

Palm trees, rocky beaches and lazy afternoons, it dosen’t get more summery than that, does it?

A little soundtrack to go with, Twin Shadow – Golden Light:

Jeff Koons, brain melt and the likes

terrace

If I had a terrace, I suppose it would look something like this..

tumblr_mirrtzcbrp1qz9i7ro1_1280

More golden balloons. Some 15 years after Jeff Koons did it, can’t say I’m so up to date on this one.

hand

I’m off to Mallorca for about two weeks. Computer coming with so I’ll be posting as usual, just in newly washed hotel sheets every day, woho! If you see a change in the posts, don’t worry: a slight brain melt is unavoidable. But there are worse things than that, right? Anyways, that’s what all tourists say. See you soon!

Anish Kapoor, Södra Latin, Mallorca

interior

Exquisite apartment facing my old gymnasium Södra Latin. So strange, didn’t notice until I saw the building through the window. It’s a very typical Södermalm apartment.

dress back

Cross straps-dresses just can’t go wrong. Well almost.

anish kapoor

Anish Kapoor knows how to party like a lord (he was made one in 2013 after all..).

Tomorrow I’ll be lost in the Mallorcan sun with sticky sun screen, sandy sandals and salt bleached bikinis so that’s why I put up this extra fine series of white/black/copper combination from various tumblrs and pinterests today.
