Denim & Dogs: Celebrating Independence Day with Woman’s Best Friend

 

Denim & Dogs: Celebrating Independence Day with Woman’s Best Friend
By Julia Childs

Denim & Dogs, a continuing collaboration between ACTVSM Creative and Live FAST, combines two of the best things in life to promote placing homeless pups in their forever homes. Stylist and activist Lwany Smith brought model Amanda Smith together with a bevy of sweet rescue dogs. Most of them have already been spoken for, aside from crystal-eyed beauty Jasper, but each show their brilliant and loving personalities.

By now, we’d hope it would be common sense to adopt, rather than purchase, one’s pet. However, arguments for buying often include coveting speciality breeds. This story debunks that notion completely – two of the key models are Jasper, a gorgeous husky and Nani, a German Pinscher. If little dogs are your thing, they’re in here too.

Aside from cute dogs (I mean, do we really need anything other than cute dogs, though?) is the styling. A take on classic denim seen through a summertime set of lenses, each frame evokes thoughts of BBQs, pool parties, fireworks, the 4th of July, and those hot hot dog days of summer.

A Night in Paris With Birkenstock

 

A Night in Paris With Birkenstock
By Chloé

Paris with Birkenstock

I had only been to Paris once in my life… for my 21st birthday. Which yup, was quite a while ago. So when my friends at Birkenstock surprised me with a trip to attend their PFW show on the weekend I was very seriously excited.

…I will be living there in July/August, but having such a beautiful 24 hours in town was a nice taste of whats to come.

I spent most of my time at the Tuileries where the show was held in an amazing green house. Slept at the beautiful Le Grand Hotel and jetted in and out on the Eurostar. Take a look…

A cosy modern bohemian home

 

A cosy modern bohemian home
By noreply@blogger.com (My Scandinavian Home)

Tjoohoo! It’s a hive of activity at home today as we’re getting ready for our summer holiday – eeeeee! I find it hard to feel super excited until I’m actually on route these days though (there’s so much to do!). Do you find that?! Anyway, since I’ll be taking a two week blogging break (shock horror! – that sounds like ages and I’m going to miss you guys, but I’ve been working like crazy with photo shoots and finishing my Lagom book (exciting!) so I’m in need of a little R&R, plus I think my family have forgotten who I am!). But before I head off, I thought I’d leave with you the most inspiring home – with LOTS of ideas around every corner! This lovely space belongs to Megan Schlachtenhaufen, purveyor of fab, custom made wall hangings (hop on over to Instagram to check them out). Megan shares her home in Wisconsen, with her husband and two daughters and has furnished it with an eclectic mix of furniture, layers of texture, lovely art and punches of colour resulting in a relaxed modern bohemian style. Let’s take a peek….


Photography: 5, 13 and 14 by Clettis Wright. The rest by Megan Schlachtenhaufen.

Oh how I love this home. It makes me want to go out and hunt for paintings for my wall, rummage around flea markets for secondhand finds, invest in some kilim cushions and Moroccan blankets and generally max out on cosiness  – how about you?!

Get the look from Megan’s home: source beautiful kilim cushions here, pick up a blanket with pom poms / tassels here, leather pouf / ottoman, mantis ceiling light, this is a great shop for rugs. Baskets, Atollo gold table lamp. Pick up custom-made wall hangings by Megan here. The large wall hanging in the living room is by The Dharma Door.

You can also see more pictures of this home and an interview with Megan over at The Glitter Guide

If you need a little escape on your morning coffee break, here are some of my all time favourite archives for you to check-out while I’m away (although you might need to set-aside an entire morning or two!):

A round-up of Swedish homes
Inspiring Danish homes
My pick of Norwegian homes
Who doesn’t love a Finnish home?! 
Relaxed and laidback summer cottages
International Home tours
Beautiful, relaxed bohemian style homes.

Or if you’d like to go offline – there’s always my book The Scandinavian Home: Interiors inspired by light too! Best enjoyed with a coffee….or espresso martini (depending on the time of day!). I hope you enjoy it!

Have a lovely couple of weeks!

PS Catch you on Instagram in the meantime…

Tyler, the Creator has been counting down days all week. Earlier on, we saw the trailer for his upcoming Viceland show Nuts + Bolts, and we assumed that’s what he was teasing. But nah, Tyler has gone and dropped a clip for a new A$AP collab, ‘Who Dat Boy’.

How does art help us virtually travel to other places and worlds? That’s a question we pondered as we walked through “You Are Going on a Trip: Modern and Contemporary Prints from the Permanent Collection,” on view until August 20. If you’re looking for inspiration for a summer getaway, this is a great place to start! #LAInstaFling #SoCalMuseums #museums #MuseumInstaSwap http://ift.tt/2tuKseJ

In Celebration of @sbmuseart’s 75th anniversary in 2016, the museum is displaying some gorgeous highlights of the museum’s permanent collection. You can see works by Richard Diebenkorn, Claude Monet, Michael Light and Marc Chagall (get excited for LACMA’s exhibition exploring Chagall’s creations for the stage, coming this summer!) We loved walking through the galleries to take in works from modern art, photography, arts of Asia and more. #LAInstaFling #SoCalMuseums #museums #lacma #MuseumInstaSwap http://ift.tt/2t5TEmP

Studio Visit: Catzorange Blends Organic Modern with a Summertime Aesthetic

 

Studio Visit: Catzorange Blends Organic Modern with a Summertime Aesthetic
By Julia Childs

Catzorange is a duo who creates sweet treasures. Based out of Brooklyn, the couple has been receiving buzz for their handmade bags that boast an organic modern aesthetic. Their signature details are thick strands of rope sewn into large intricate loops to create bucket bags and circular purses. A minimalist’s dream and the go-to accessory for cool girls, Catzorange creates bags that are made for filling with memories. Farmer’s markets, beaches, meetings, train rides – the line’s aesthetic blends into any scenario.

Johnny and Coco, the individuals behind Catzorange, let us into their plant-filled world. Their studio is based out of Brooklyn and is nothing short of dreamy. Get acquainted with the couple below and view their selection of goods here – they’re the perfect accessory for all of your summer memories.

Q&A

LF: Welcome to Live FAST. First things first, what does the name Catzorange mean?

J & C: Catzorange comes from a special time and place for both of us. It goes back to where we met and it is a word that has travelled with us ever since.

LF: What influenced you to create the Catzorange line?

J & C: We are constantly creating and making things. Making objects of all kinds for our home always left us with pieces that we gave to friends and family. We simply made what we needed and what we wanted to have. At some point, we figured that we can bring those pieces to a wider audience and just went for it.

Catzorange is our attempt to pin down an aesthetic that we wanted to find in our life. It is built around a simplicity, clarity and beauty that we struggled to find. We never really thought we were going to have our own line. Now, we feel very proud to have been able to create this little adventure.

LF: Describe your creative rituals – both individually and as a unit.

J: We have an enormous amount of plants in our loft. Every morning I take the time to check in and care for each one of them. It is a fantastic way to start the day and loosen up the mind.

C: I make lists to slow myself down and stay focused. I love making lists and plans. I make lists for everything and carry them around in little books so I can make new ones, look at old ones, cross things out. We spend as much time as we can in nature, going on walks and looking for treasures along the way.

LF: Are you more intuitive or analytical when designing?

J: I am a bit more analytical and like to problem solve when designing and fit the object to its purpose. I follow the shapes and forms that whatever material we are working with presents to me while keeping its functionality.

C: My work flow is more intuitive. I go for a certain taste while designing, like a color palette or pattern in my head that creates a balance. When a concept feels balanced, it becomes whole – I can look up and take a step back. Our sensibilities and process work very well together.

LF: The bags you create are a perfect union of function and fashion – who/what are your top 5 design inspirations?

J & C: We love traditional fabrics and textiles. We have a small collections of antique berber shawls and Peruvian blankets that have a lot of history in them. They are wonderfully made and tell stories that will outlast us. Apart from fabrics, we are very inspired by all kinds of artifacts and curiosities that cross our path. If we had a big house, we probably would have one closet full of old and weird glass objects, bottles, canisters, and vessels .

If we would have to pin it down to inspiring people, our top names would be: Brancusi, Charles & Ray Eames, Donald Judd and, above all, Lisa Bonet.

LF: Do you believe that style is something that can be taught, rather than a natural trait?

J & C: Having the confidence and dedication to wear your own personality through your clothing is a good natural trait. Being aware of the quality and history of a garment can certainly educate and influence one’s style.

LF: Describe your last experience traveling.

J & C: The last time we traveled, we went to Mykonos in Greece. It was for a get-together with friends and we stayed in a beautiful little arrangement of houses on a hill. All white, crisp and bright with the ocean at the tip of your toes. We cooked together, danced in the night and drove around in little Jeeps.

LF: What was the last dream you had?
I carried a Baby Koala, little bird and a chipmunk on my head…

LF: How do you each individually express vulnerability?

Creating is a way of expressing a vulnerability. Making something and putting it out there is always scary.

LF: How fast do you live?

Very fast on the outside, very slow on the inside.

Ok, disclosure. I never actually saw Kate… She was here, however I was too busy exploring the beautiful rooms of Spencer House (and ok, I’ll admit, getting deep into the cocktails on the terrace) and yip, I totally missed her.

But that’s ok, I got a snap of my way-beautiful date Tiggy and the over the top details inside the amazing house.

And most importantly, the reason for the evening. CK’s beautiful, fresh and seriously sexy new perfume. Obsessed …no seriously, that’s the name of the fragrance ❤

I’m fond of Kowtow for so many reasons…

The ethical brand is at the forefront of sustainability – like seriously, they cover all bases. They’re based in NZ (in my lil ol’ home town of Wellington none the less❤). And to top it all off they’ve just created these super sweet tees for Refugee day…

I know I’m a little late with WRD being last week, but I had to get my top shipped right around the world to London!

But luckily they’re still available and all proceeds go to Red Cross NZ, specifically for the purpose of aiding Refugees with resettlement. Cute guys, cute.

Welcome to the @SoCalMuseums #InstaFling! All throughout the day we’re sharing photos from our visit to @sbmuseart. Our first stop was the Summer Art Camp. 🎨 ☀️ Each week of the camp focuses on a different art technique – from painting to ceramics – and a fun theme. We got to see works inspired by Pop Art, from Campbell’s soup cans to cartoon dots. The next art camp theme is “About Face: Portraits in Art.“ #LAInstaFling #summer #MuseumInstaSwap #museums http://ift.tt/2sVj8ox
