monday: HOW TO MAKE UP THE BED

DETAILS




On monday mornings it can be hard enough to wake up and get everybody out of bed. Then it might be a faraway thinking to make up the bed and you leave the house in a rush. But to stop procrastinate making up the bed on mondays it's essential to know some super easy ways to do it in no time. I always do it the same way though there are days that I'm not in the mood and think it's cosy having it undone, specially during weekends. I prefer my bed relaxed and the cushions comfy and not to many. It's also much better if the inner cushion is well shaped to arrange it nicely. Following are some ideas for you to make up your bed every monday morning and the mornings there after!

FROM COLOUR TO BLACK AND WHITE

PHOTOGRAPHY




Remember I talked about the impact and big difference black and white interior shots have to the coloured one. You can see it very clearly on these two images. Gunnar kind of shot this by coincidence in our old home a while ago when trying his camera. Notice the different vibe and feeling when looking at the black and white one. It almost feels like old and much more a photo you would copy and put in a frame. The coloured one is more for interior books and magazines. Have a nice weekend!

DENIM DETAILS

STYLE



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.

cushions: COMBINATIONS AND ARRANGEMENT

DETAILS




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

STYLE



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

DESIGN



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.

WINTER WHITES

STYLE




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.
