Swedish archipelago

Monday, September 30, 2013

Oh my oh my, oh. These photos of an isolated mid-century home in the northern Swedish archipelago are the stuff of fever dreams. I am swooning over the so-cozy green living room space, the charm of blue/white gingham bed linens, and the hazy sunshine pouring through the windows. Head swimmingly gorgeous photographs by Felix Odell. Hard to believe this is real life, right?


Claire Softley

UK based illustrator Claire Softley makes some pretty sweet art. I'm not the biggest cat-art-lover, but, for those of you who are (and I know you're out there, in droves...), you'll be interested to know that cat art is one of her specialties. Me, I like her sweet cacti-stuffed shelf and minimalistic shape studies.

Emma Dajska

Friday, September 27, 2013

Emma Dajska's collages are just witchy and weird enough for me. She's done work for Rookie in the past, which is always a good thing, and belongs to femme art collective/platform The Ardorous, founded by photog and general babe Petra Collins. It's kind of dumb how jealous I am of teenage girls right now, with such a rad clique to belong to, if they dig it.

Rinne Allen

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Today's weather is simply magical. I woke up at around 8, opened all of the windows in my living room as usual, and woosh! The wind practically blew me over. I've been sweeping up crunchy little leaves and flower petals all day. It's all doing a very good job to help convince me that fall has in fact arrived.

These photos of Athens, Georgia-based artist Rinne Allen's beautiful studio are killing me with their autumnal vibes: baskets of pretty, faded textiles, stacks of feathery porcelain, green leaves atop wooden floors. Enjoy today, wherever you are, whatever the weather.


fall, baby

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

On the count of three, let's get all up in there with those fall* wishlists** we're all secretly/not-so-secretly making. 1-2-3 !

*Items reflect L.A. fall weather. So, a skirt and sweater, sans jacket, is totally, 100% sufficient. Even an open toe shoe can cut it. Lucky, I know!
**Wishlist in the truest sense of the word. Most of these items are absolutely unattainable for me, but still capture an idea I'm feeling inspired by!

Maiami knits

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

After a long day of travel, I'm back in Los Angeles. Hey there, endless summer! I have to say, it was niiiice to wake up to truly crisp mornings in New Jersey (I'll share photos in another Instagram roundup this week!). And to honor the sweaters I so joyously had the opportunity to wear all week long, here's a peak at Berlin-based Maiami's A/W '13-'14 collection, chock full of cozy knits in the sweetest array of retro stripes and styles.


Nanna Hänninen

Monday, September 23, 2013

Finish artist Nanna Hänninen's paint-splashed photo works are pretty wonderful. I love the dimensionality that the thick, textured globs and dabs and spots of colors add to otherwise austere black and white images. Her floral pieces are some of my favorites, but there is something kind of haunted and so beautiful about the others, too.

marais fall/winter '14 !

Friday, September 20, 2013

Marais USA's fall/winter lookbook should inspire you to have a killer almost-fall weekend. Here's to socks with heels and boyfriend jeans with ankle boots, hey!

I'm off to Thurmont, MD to spend time with some East Coast friends in a spot of wilderness. I'll return with a photo roundup, promise!
