I’ve discovered so meny great bloggers through Instagram, redhead beauty Sea of Shoes-Jane for example.
Also, I discovered that my love for rosy kelim rugs just wont go away. Especially if there are a pair of mint suede shoes neatly placed on it like this.
Lastly, turkish coffee is so delicious.. It’s all aromatic and smooth with the most confusing cooking procedure ever (in 8 steps..).
I sense some Moroccan, One Thousand and One Nights-feeling going on with these photos. I don’t know I guess I’m preparing for fall with the sullen colors, strong coffee and all. But then again, there are worst things than that, right?
Such a vintage Natalia Vodianova-photo.
All the balconies in Palma look exactly like this one. It’s as if they stage them like that purposely for the sake of tourism. Photo source right here.
Can’t get enough of a good climbing rose. This one is by Mikki.
Plants, pretty russians, lace and legendery balconies, all in the name of inspiration. Sad thing one can’t have climbing roses inside an apartment, I would absolutely cover some wall with them. Oh well, that’s what wallpapers are for I suppose.
Must-have lego pumps via Carolina Engmans pinterest.
And must-have windows (I’m very articulate and versatile today as you can see).
And let’s continue on the same track: must-have bedroom.
When something is too good, one turn a little stone age-y..
Glittery pumps and pleated skirts.
Sequined dress on a beach… Such an extravagant Great Gatsby-ish escapism that would only work in editorials (and on blogs of course).
Stockholm the other day, I was literally soaked by the rain.
Ultimate bokeh dust.
Every autumn/fall I get a feeling for everything sparkly and shimmering, as if to bright up all the dark and rainy evenings to come. But then again, sequins are prettier in moonlight, right? Oscar Wilde probably said it at some point anyways, sounds like something he would campaign.
Mini kitchen with a (what I hope is a) blackboard-painted wall perfect for white crayons, via Arch daily.
I’m very in to these kind of fading floors right now for some reason.
Cherries on top, by Noel Barnhurst and the Cherry Blossom Girl by Marie Zucker for Louis Vuitton.
A trio of photos that look like they’re snapped from a perfect, free wednesday in a little sweet Barcelona flat.
Optical illusion or just apartment in Stockholm, not sure anymore.
Such a prettily composed bouquet.
Le Dôme des Invalides and some Parisian roof tops.
Magic-looking leaves (not in that way).
A a pretty pink pom-sweater by L’Ecole des Femmes f/w-2012. There will be an autumn after all.
Today some more stucco ceilings, pom clothing, overload of chimnies and mystery plants.
Tell me if you know any photo source.
I am so weak for baroque stucco work, especially when in contrast with modern interiors.
I’m also weak for shoes. Especially when in contrast with summery weather..
Both the interior in the first photo and the outfit in the second have some sort of modernism meets handicraft-thing going on. The apartment with it’s enthralling handiwork ceiling and the hand-crafted embroidery on the skirt. It’s divine and down to earth at the same time. Well ok, 10 cm from the earths surface in this case but that’s also 10 cm closer to that divine ceiling.

Fancy some Sail-in cinema? Thats free movies presented on a floating screen for you. Right here at Sugar Beach.
Pretty botanical pattern on a silk scarf. Kind of looks like butterfly wings strewn across.
Lovely apartment I want to fill up with pretty furniture! Photo via Lotta Agaton.
My awe with empty apartments, silk scarves and dusty pink hues on everything rolls on even this Sunday. Too bad Toronto is so far from Stockholm, I would spend the day at that exact spot right now were it not 10 flight hours away. If you’re close by, please have a soft ice cream under one of those Cherry blossom girl-sunshades for me.
Vinyl-round hat by Chanel s/s-13.
Old creaky floors are just the best. I would hang the Chanel-hat right on that wall.
Abstract floral print by Paul Smiths fall collection.
Transparency, chocolate brown wooden floors and abstract fall prints are on my mind today. The top two photos are via my tumblr-crush Velveteen.
I love these by Shini Park, totally makes me crave afternoon tea accompanied by a lusty Couronne-bag and then some old style fountain-watching. You see in the right environment I can be perfectly at ease with doing nothing. At least for an hour or so.
This dress is so Grace Kelly/Cannes Riviera gone 2013. From the Nina Ricci resort-collection.
Pool water turned sparkly gem stones, so very tumblr-ish.
A wild bouquet one would pick on the countryside and a stringy chair one would sit on in the city. By my old favorite Le dans la.
And this apartment is insane! I would go live there in a second. Reminds me of this one.
The last days of July continue on in a swirl of pink and purple hues with it’s bright afternoons and warm evenings.
Waking up in a Le Corbusier house (photo by Mary Gaudin).
Going to the market really early (photo by Style Slicker).
And decorating a cake with paper bag-wrapped berries straight from the coutryside (photo by Mary Gaudin again).
That I would imagine to be quite a nice tuesday morning. All cuddled up in that late summer glow that only seem to occur when abroad.
I’m just washing some geraniums Karen Millen-style.
Stockholm through my camera. Also known as Scandinavias Paris.
Baking, cooking, shopping and enjoying the capital of Sweden royally even on rainy days.
And showing you all the places you’ll have to visit when in Stockholm.
I’m with blog! It’s not a transition from Lolitas though, to make it clear: I will continue to write here too. Come on – after 8 years I can’t just stop taking care of this soon to be teenager of a blog. I love Lolitas. But recently I’ve felt like taking more photos of my own, creating something that is more me and that reflects what happens in my everyday life more blog-wisely then Lolitas does. If Lolitas.se is a scrapbook of thoughts and dreams then My Beautiful Stockholm is a portal of realisation. It’s a journal that tells both my story and Stockholms. I hope you’ll come with me over there! And that we’ll see more of each other here as well. All the best! /Katarina
See you here! =
This looks like my rose bush! If it was ten times bigger…
These Eames chairs are growing on me. I’ve definitely read too many magazines.
Caramel and pink, not a bad color scheme.
And Kate Spade makes the sweetest summer outfits as usual.
Paris facade goes New York interior goes french pastry again and then girly print. I’d like it all in that order. Photos (not the Kate Spade one) are by Sandra Juto.
Glittering water and rebellious pine trees in Italy, Portofino.
Watermelon for breakfast on hibiscus-prints.
And cherries in the afternoon.
This bag would be perfect for strolls when it’s not too hot outside.
And dinners by old, handmade windows.
Mary Gaudin takes the loveliest photos I think. Here I put together some kind of Italy series but there are plenty of places to swoon over right here in her flickr.
