If there is one thing I couldn't possibly be without in my closet it's jeans, everything denim and chambray. I wouldn't need so much more...uhhh, notice NEED but I know I would love to have something more! I tend to stop and watch closer photos showing some nice denim combinations and details and following are some interesting to look at. What a versatile piece of fabric.

Arranging and choosing cushions is something many people want to feel right in their sofa – to feel good in it and so it looks good too. I think the images I chose with this post show examples to have in mind. Don't have the cushions all the same size, some bigger and some smaller. Choose cushions or inner cushions that look and feel full and feathery so the cushions look their best. Make a colour palette that works for your and your interiors and mix pattern and stripes. Arrange the cushions differently, not just in one corner. More all the way like above. From the corner and to the middle and one in the other corner like below. In the middle and skip the corners. Let them stand and lay flat and prop against each other. Good luck!

fashionweek: FOR YOU TO WEAR


With street style photography and personal fashion blogs the fashion world has changed. So has the fashion driven media. Now we're longing to see how people are dressed in real life and when the fashion weeks are running we like to see nice clothing and combinations on people attending the runways as much as the collection presented. I always search the street style features on the major websites these fashion weeks and think the same; as much as I like to see interestingly and nicely dressed people I search for combinations and look that suits me for everyday life here in Reykjavík. Now I searched the great Tommy Ton on Style.com and stopped immediately when I saw these images that are following. I hope you'll do that too!

domestic setting: MORE OF ILSE CRAWFORD


This is not a real home although it seems to be. It's a real life domestic setting of a fictious  Finnish-German couple Harri and Astrid. An installation in the loft of Herzog & de Meuron's  Vitrahaus on the Weil am Rhein campus by the designer Ilse Crawford and her people at Studioilse. The idea was to bring to life Vitra and Artek's portfolios in one setting for the first time. Great and wonderful combination of design classics, artistic and bohemian atmosphere where the one of a kind touch of Crawford and her team masters all the details needed to make an installation feel like a home.

So impeccably classy but yet so cool, chic and relaxed. White in various and softest tones is the colour to use all year round and play every season with form and texture. White in autumn when the skin is still a bit sun kissed is faultless, whether dressed up and down, homey or for work. When a bit colder, nothing beats the chunky sweater, white jeans and white shirt used in various ways.

Everything goes in circles and as we are in september it's time to start talking about the importance of lamps. The underestimated implement in making a home enticing. I will never get tired of telling people to buy lamps here and there for their home and to show them how mood altering they are. It doesn't have to be an expensive one, more the right size and form than anything else so it will fit the space it's supposed to fill. 
Now we talk about lamps that are there to give light more than be a statement. Such lamps play "hide and seek" as they become a part of a display or arrangement without getting all the attention. They add light and therefor mood in between beautiful objects. Try rice paper lamps, little glass balls and office lamps and they can do miracles.

This weekend Gunnar grabbed his old Hasselblad and shot some photos on film in black and white in our new home. Simple shots of normal things that please the eye in our everyday life. I like seeing things in black and white and how everything turns into much more arty stuff than how we see it by our own eyes. It always makes me feel I want him to turn it to paper and frame it. Maybe I will.
