I guess it’s a part of all creative souls to be fully present and then burn out. When a dream has faded and became unbearable. And the only solution is to pack and run.
So there has been a lot of packing and running and unpacking again. A lot of touching moments and sweetest “till i see you again”s. Followed by a lot of silence, taking a moment just to be. Without any plans or expectations from self. May be for the first time, a road without a final destination, without a goal. Scary and refreshing. Learning patience and simplicity.
And now, it’s all coming back. With blood pumping through the veins in the new way. There are big changes in the making. They are still too young to tell but soon to reveal.
All I can say for now is that I’m becoming a new persona.

Who said you always have to re-invent the wheel?! Sometimes a little glowing sphere is all you need. These Bocci globes always make me happy… like chicken soup for your soul, you know.

I always have mixed emotions when it comes to Halloween. I’m all for playing dress up and distorting the reality for a day (just a trip to the Grocery store on that day is a treat with all the characters down the isles) but some people need to take it to the NEXT level. The kind of level that makes you want to close you eyes and erase the memory.
We are all here for boo-tiful and tasteful kind of darkness so let me present you Vivienda En La Finca by Spanish architecture and design studio A-CERO.
The design team created quite a unique setting which could totally be the dwelling of a modern-day Dracula. All elements are there: strong interplay of light and dark, seductive art curiosities and luring Gothic volumes. Everything is so well though-through, it give me the designer goose bums.
There is something forbidden but very tempting at the same time. Would you dare to come in?

Hello lovelies, I promised not to leave you alone for too long so here am I again. This time I have something very very special. That is a little sneak preview of a highly anticipated fresh press – Kelly Wearstler’s “RHAPSODY“.
Officially on sale October 23rd, the book has a lot eye-candy for Kelly’s fans. Everything we love about her vibe: daring scale interplay, brave color mixes and curious vintage finds. Did I mention a LOT of creative inspiration?
MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!

Lets dwell a little bit more on the topic of summer and 50s fashion. This time coming form the homeland of Mother-Russia. While the fashion world is speculating on her first Couture Show in Paris with Fall 2012 (straight after no less then Chanel), I want to step one collection back of this up-and-coming designer, Ulyana Sergeenko. Her unique personal style was in the spot light of fashion bloggers for a while and it’s great to see how she transformed it into the couture lines.
It’s just too soon for me to think of colder days in the middle of LA summer. Flowing skirts, flower prints and bodies suit much better, don’t you agree?
I absolutely love how she marries together different aspects of Russian style with European influences: the glamor of Bridgit Bardot, the romanticism of a long-gone Soviet school uniform, folk Russian prints and the simple grace of a 50s working girl prepping up for a date.
