LOVE / Animal Wall Decals by MADE OF SUNDAYS

Fun wall & door decal artwork by Made Of Sundays from Helsinki.  I am assuming these are meant for kids.  But I want one, too.  It is like an instant good-mood-maker.  Especially for a Monday.

MOMENT OF / Jane Fonda, circa 1962

NEED / Jelly Fish Aquarium

22.9.15





They say that watching the slow, repetitive, fluid movements of a jelly fish is good for your mental health..... nah, I just made that up.  But couldn't it be true?  In any event, displaying this Darwin Tank in your living space could only do you some good.  Anyways they are in there, you are not.  All is safe.

But it hasn't launched yet!  Go to kickstarter to make this dream (or someone else's) come true.

PARIS / Seymour+ (ou moins)

21.9.15


In 2011, Melissa Syemour -- part New Yorker / part French / part Californian -- launched Seymour Projects, a not-for-profit organization committed to helping individuals cultivate self-expression by encouraging them to find a balance between technology and inner exploration. In January of this year, her project evolved into a physical space called SEYMOUR+  providing patrons with a physical space to disconnect from technology and other external distractions.  The main purpose:  to reconnect with their imagination and intuition — a tech-free spa for the mind, if you will.

OBSESSED / Honeymoon Attire

This is a vintage sweatshirt designed by Love Stories Intimates which is now only available by special order.  But had I still been shopping for my honeymoon attire, I would have totally shopped at their online store offering cute briefs, bras, PJ's and cover ups for the vintage-romantic in you.

BIARRITZ / Chilled Out Bungalow

15.9.15



Biarritz once used to be the stomping ground of the cultural elite in the '20s to '50s.  People of the likes of Hemingway and Coco Chanel used to vacation there, although before their time homes were built by Nalopleon III's wife, Eugenie, and Queen Victoria during the 19th C.  Now it is a more familial vacation spot and home to some serious surfing waves -- I, myself, even once took a surfing lesson or two... anyways, this is a very simple, chilled out bungalow in what was once a very glamorous vacation destination -- the dichotomy fascinates me.

Designed by owners Constance & Dorianm they took inspiration from the white houses in Greece and incorporated rattan accessories, light wood and sheepskins give the decor a Scandinavian look & feel.









LOVE / wood clutch by Tesler Mendelovitch

11.9.15




These architectural clutches made of birch and hide are sublime.  Part of a collection of wood clutches by Tel Aviv based Tesler Mendelovitch, this one in a pale cream birch exterior is surprisingly soft and flexible (thanks to the origami folding).  Due to the natural grain and tone changes in wood, each clutch is unique. Made To Order.

LOOKBOOK / Aark Collective

5.9.15



Inspired by the monotonous events of every day, Leta Sobierajski created an impactful lookbook for watch brand Aark Collective.  Each image is a vibrant monochromatic snapshot of a specific time of day: dawn, morning, noon, evening, or midnight. Not really sure how climbing through blinds or smothering your face with a small pillow fits into every day life?  Maybe it's a lost in translation thing.

STOCKHOLM / Restaurant & Bar Nazdrowje

1.9.15


Swedish designer Richard Lindvall has converted a car park into a Stockholm night time favorite.  The restaurant-come-nightclub serves Polish food, so Richard Lindvall visited a few factories in Poland to find inspiration for the project and came with a concept for an industrial interior filled with raw materials and copper pipes stretching across its walls and ceiling.  A large fire place in copper and a unique lighting arrangement was custom-made to give warmth to the industrial environment.
