A Day in Giverny With Talisa + Monet

 

A Day in Giverny With Talisa + Monet
By Chloé

Travel Guide: Giverny

My sweet mate Talisa came all the way from Sydney to stay with me in Paris this month <3

Last week we jumped in a car and spent a day in Giverny, the sweet village where Monet lived for many years. And where he produced some of my favourite paintings including the dreamy Water Lily series.

Take a peek at my photo diary from the day (and check out the cute outfit I managed to get Talisa to wear when the weather turned chilly)! Have you ever seen her in so much colour???? !

Recap: #SweatSwimShop at The Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills

 

Recap: #SweatSwimShop at The Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills
By Julia Childs

We’re known to throw a damn good pool party. Taking a more, ahem, wellness-oriented approach to our summer ragers, we took to the elevated Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills for some poolside yoga, brunch, and mimosas. Teaming up with our friends over at Year of Ours for a sample sale, we hung with some of our favorite babes like Natalia Benson, Eva Seta, Mia Carucci, Danielle Alcaraz, and Braina Laviena.

DJ Smiles Davis curated a selection of music that kept us moving throughout the day while Lauren Abers led us through a high-energy yoga flow. Our friends over at Slow Tide helped us keep dry throughout the day with their art-forward towels. Feel like you missed out? Shop Year of Ours latest here and book your stay at Avalon Beverly Hills here.

Before emojis there were…
NETSUKE 😡
A netsuke is a small sculptural object which has developed in Japan over a period of more than three hundred years. Netsuke initially served both functional and aesthetic purposes. The traditional form of Japanese dress, the kimono, had no pockets. Women would tuck small personal items into their sleeves, but men suspended their tobacco pouches, pipes, purses, writing implements, and other items of daily use on a silk cord passed behind their obi (sash). These hanging objects are called sagemono. The netsuke was attached to the other end of the cord preventing the cord from slipping through the obi.

“Stir Ice in Well” by Piyathath Patipranprasert

 

“Stir Ice in Well” by Piyathath Patipranprasert
By Julia Childs

Melanin signed with a swipe of coral lipstick. Warm weather, warmer colors, bright prints, and a beautiful muse. Thailand-born, Australia-based photographer Piyathath Patipranprasert elevates my ideal aesthetic, inspiring me to throw on high-top Converse with a mix of cocktail of prints. Model Vanessa Umugabekazi shows us something we know to be a fact: There is power in the fabrics we wrap our bodies in, power in the pigments we touch to our faces, power in the ornamentation of self.

This editorial boasts international roots – both Vanessa and make-up artist Gabby Webb are from Australia while stylist Misaki Tonomura is from Japan. This global perspective provides an element of coolness that feels like an ice cube meeting the nape of your neck on a hot summer day, fresher than melting water pooling in your collarbones and dripping down your spine. Dive in below.

My new book!

 

My new book!
By noreply@blogger.com (My Scandinavian Home)

This year I’ve been tinkering away behind the scenes on a new book. And now it’s finally time to reveal a little more about it! So exciting! While my first two books focus on interior design, my new book is centered around the Swedish philosophy of ‘Lagom‘ meaning ‘not too much, no too little – just right.’ I moved to Sweden in 2004 and over the past 13 years a lot has happened –  marriage, children, work…. But also, while I’ll still always be a Londoner at heart, I’ve slowly adapted to the Swedish way of life. My home is clutter-free, I ride my bike everywhere (even in the snow!), I take walks along beaches and in the forests and I finish work on time (clock-watching? who me?!). And something truly unexpected has happened – I’ve become calmer, more content and ultimately….. happier! In ‘Lagom: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life‘  I’ve drawn on my observations of life in Sweden – from how my Nordic friends decorate their homes, take morning dips, go mushroom picking and enjoying a fika (a break with a coffee and a little treat) to how they celebrate holidays and other big events, raise their children and even strike a balance with the world around them. I hope you’ll enjoy the many tips, craft ideas and even the odd recipe as much as I have  compiling them for the book!

Lagom: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life‘ is now available to pre-order here!

It’s such a wonderful moment to see a book come to life. Thank you to my publisher HarperCollins who has been so supportive of all my ideas from start to finish and the talented Swedish illustrator Petra Borner for the beautiful illustrations throughout the book! I can’t tell you how generous my Swedish friends (and others further afield) have been throughout the process – from trusting me with their knowledge, to sharing experiences and providing recipes – tack så mycket! And finally, a huge thank you for reading my blog and following my feeds on social media, you inspire me to share my experiences of Scandinavian (and more specifically Sweden) – and this book would never have been possible without you!

I hope you enjoy it!

Cosy meets contemporary in a Rotterdam home

 

Cosy meets contemporary in a Rotterdam home
By noreply@blogger.com (My Scandinavian Home)

Why hello Monday! I hope you’ve had a great weekend? We’re slowly snaking our way home across the Baltic sea to Malmö via Denmark after our sailing adventure… it’s been such a relaxing time!  To match my mood, I thought I’d kick off the week with this lovely, calm space in Rotterdam belonging to Stefan Prins, a partner of architect and design firm, the Powerhouse Company. Stefan has spent three years designing and building his dream home and turned to Holly Marder and Hedda Pier of Avenue Design Studio for interior design assistance. The result is a Nordic style home that bridges the gap between ‘clean and contemporary’ and cosy and comfortable with the use of rich, natural textures. Here’s a sneak peek of the sitting room and kitchen / dining area…

Photography: Avenue Design Studio. Architect: Stefan Prins

What a great space? I love the open-plan nature of the living area and the soft, muted tones.

Get the look from Stefan’s home: sitting room – art by July Adrichem, source natural linen made-to-measure curtains here (I also love these two-toned curtains – so lovely!). Kitchen / dining area – wishbone chairs, ceramics by July Adrichem, ‘Up’ poster by Fine Little Day,  bench from IKEA.

You can see more of this space and read more about the project here.

I’m such a big fan of Dutch style and often showing homes from The Netherlands. Check out a few of my favourites here!

Right, better get a move on, we need to take to the water….

Have a great start to the week!

Prada & Michael Kors At The Eiffel Tower (Plus My Paris Hot Spots)

 

Prada & Michael Kors At The Eiffel Tower (Plus My Paris Hot Spots)
By Chloé

At The Eiffel Tower in Paris

No stay in Paris is complete without a few cheesy Eiffel tower shots <3

Plus Here are a few of my favourite spots round town so far…

For yummy dinner with organic wine make a booking at  Au Passage in the 11th, offset the carbs the next day with healthy snacks and smoothies at Wild & the Moon in the 3rd, then have a lunch time fallafel at L’As du Fallafel on Rue Des Rosiers, followed by an afternoon crepe at La Droguerie (my pick is the sucre citron)!

For vintage shopping my favourite store is Nice Piece in Le Marais, but make sure you also head to the french label outlets like Sandro on Rue de Sévigné and A.P.C on Rue André del Sarte.

Now enjoy this frenchy cheese…

Cute Collab Alert: Arthur Arbesser X YOOX
By Chloé

YOOX x Arthur Arbesser

The cute guys over at YOOX (one of my fave discount shopping sites… check out the cheap PRADA!) have teamed up with super-fun designer Arthur Arbesser on THIS colourful collection.

I’ve been tracking Arthur’s label for the last week while… He studied at Central Saint Martins, was an LVMH graduate and is from one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever visited (Vienna, if you were wondering).

And while he does some killer tailoring and super-sleek knitwear, it’s his graphic designs that I really love. So if like me you were awaiting the checks and stripes from his upcoming fall/winter collection you can get a colourful fix right now with this YOOX collab <3

“Sweet Young Thing” by Chris Phelps

 

“Sweet Young Thing” by Chris Phelps
By Erin Rose Belair

It’s in there in all of us, a renegade vein of mischief. For some it is close to the surface, others find it deep and buried beneath heart and bone. It invokes a need to strut above the law and get away with all sorts of hell. Finding is an iconic role really, a right of passage even, like those female 70’s movie leads. Leave the building burning in the background, seek another horizon to make your mark upon.

We’re loving “Sweet Young Thing,” a short by Chris Phelps. It’s a modern take on 50s teddy girls, a greaser style that looks so damn good on babe Morgan Chapman. Shot in downtown Los Angeles, the video and stills are imbued with a babeish badassary that feels like a cornerstone to this classic city of ours. Eat your heart out.

I’ve been hitting up Marché Vernaison on a weekly basis.

It’s part of Paris’ amazing Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen, a massive Flea Market spanning over 9 hectares. But the Vernaison stalls are without a doubt my favourite and house everything from clothes to jewellery to furniture.

If you head out back you’ll find this little slice of Christmas year-round. Baubles and tinsel hung down the corridor and pastel crates stacked with empty bottles. Cute ❤
