A Game of Contrasts

Jun 29, 2011

It's been quite a while since I've posted about interior design, but lately I've seen such beautiful designs that I just had to post one of them. Probably another reason this is BRAVO's new series - Million Dollar Decorators. Sure, all of the designers are such characters, but I just love the show.

And here is a 2 room apartment that I just fell in love with - definitely wouldn't mind living there. It really manages to stand out through it's apparent simplicity.

But behind that simplicity lies a beautiful combination of traditional and modern elements (notice the rugs or fireplace as opposed to the sleek glass coffee tables for example), which create a wonderful contrast and an eclectic and unique feel.
Using a lot of white, the apartment manages to look a lot larger that it's 65 square meter living area, but more importantly has a certain freshness to it, a freshness that is enhanced by the flowers that sit by the window sill. Contrast seems to be an underlining theme, because chromatically, the use of black and red accents create a permanent visual interest.
When you're looking to create a new style for your bedroom, then you'll be looking at different items of furniture to fit in there. The K & Co store has a great collection to check out to make sure you maintain the look and style you're looking for.

It's been a few days since MFW wrapped up, but I still find myself going through all of the great looks that were revealed for Spring/Summer 2012. All of the designers did an amazing job, and although it's always hard to pick favorites, I selected a few of the looks that really stood out for me. Check them out here:

Tobias Sorensen for Zara Australia

Jun 10, 2011

Zara releases it's June Menswear Lookbook for Australia, featuring model Tobias Sørensen. While it may be the middle of Summer here in Europe, and extremely hot, I know I want some of those Winter '11 pieces - military is never out of style.

Study Session

Jun 7, 2011

With finals just a few days away, I went to the library to do some research for school. Call me a bookworm, but I have to admit I really enjoy browsing through magazines and finding cool projects and concepts.
Oh, and did I mention my school's library also has a fashion and interior design section? Not that large, but it's always nice to have the opportunity to read older issues of Italian Elle Decor and British Vogue issues.

What do you think? Is this learning or procrastinating?

Outfit Post: LadyGaga & ZARA

Jun 5, 2011

When I heard Zara was selling Lady Gaga t-shirts I just had to go and buy one for myself. Here are a few photos of me that Denisa from fashioninmyeyes.com took.
I guess I'm definitely a little monster, but I wanted to keep it urban and not go over the top.

wearing: ZARA jeans, shoes and t-shirt, with an LTB jacket and H&M sunglasses.
