Cotton candy coat

pink hm coat trend autumn 2014

For someone who is ridiculously interested in fashion, I’m the worst shopper. I always end up with buying nothing. I know some people would disagree (my father and grandmother among others) but I find myself always being so picky I can’t find anything. That’s why when I really obsess over an item, I’m the happiest you ever saw when I finally get it.

This pink, cotton candy-ish alpaca-wool coat from H&Ms trend collection that I got today is my ultimate love-purchase this winter. It’s sooo dreamy. I just want to spray it with sugary sweet-perfume and go lie down and take a nap in it. It goes so well with black tight Mouret-dresses and bare legs (well, in spring then..). It’s lovely, until it rains. But that wouldn’t happen, right?

Borrowed the photo of the coat here.

Happy Holidays!

I wish this was a collection of my own since I would just love to get away for a couple of days but the lovely collage is by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper. I hope you’re having some great days off, I’m doing my best to relax but having worked all through december, the pile of clothes that needs to be cleaned and stuff that has to be done has just been growing.. December is nice but I can’t wait for January and a fresh new start!

Friday fur, fur, fur and 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!

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 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.

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!

Palais de Tokyo, Pink apples, Overly ordery

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!

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.

Gourmet mouse traps and Clarendon

mouse trap

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..).

clarendon calenderAs 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!
