Scandinavian meets Spanish in this stunning urban residence in Palma, Mallorca. Spain based architecture firm AVW Arquitectura and Stockholm based interior designers Whyte Lilja collaborated onImpremta Garden, an apartment complex housed in a 400 year old building. 12 flawless units were designed with modern amenities, extra high ceilings and outdoor gardens, while still maintaining the structure’s historical character with its original beams, Chevron patterned oak floors and natural textures. Just dreamy. . .
There’s a new hat line in town and I’m in love. And it’s no wonder one of my favorite travel photographers, is part of the creative brains behind the brand. Lucy Laucht, together with Johanna Peet of Peet Rivko and Nicole Najafi of Industry Standard, collaborated on a collection of Southwestern inspired hats, handmade by America’s oldest hat maker. In fact, the multi-generation milliner crafted Georgia O’Keefe’s iconic hats in the early 1900s! Tio y Tia recently launched with two classic styles: The Gambler, a black hat with a classic curved brim and O’Keefe inspired chin strap and The Dolores, a brown hat with a wide brim. I dig the short and flat crowns, as well as the promise that the hats only get better with age. Sold.
I couldn’t think of a better way to close out the week (and January, the seemingly looongest month of the year!!) than with these delightful paintings by illustrator Ginnie Hsu. Suddenly, a weekend a home, with absolutely no plans, feels totally satisfactory . . .
Rodarte‘s Kate and Laura Mulleavy opted for a lookbook in lieu of a show this season and I must say, I prefer to enjoy a collection this way. The photos exude a compelling feeling that can be otherwise overlooked on a runway. Instead of models, the design duo dressed their friends – inspirational women like Miranda July, Ava Phillipe, Chloe and Halle Bailey, Gia Coppola, Grimes, Kim Gordon, Kirsten Dunst, Rowan Blanchard, and Tessa Thompson. Moody romanticism was encapsulated by a cinematic, set – a background for beautiful dresses constructed of red tulle, embroidered white lace, polka dot silk and sequins. And let’s not forget about the oversized tartan pant suits – which were part of some of my favorite looks! So, so good.
Today, we’re revisiting Australia’s Halcyon House because it’s just that painfully good. Honestly, can we say interior goals? It’s definitely one of my favorite spaces of all time and the inspiration behind our newly decorated guest room (reveal coming soon!). If you don’t recall, Halcyon House is a 1960s surf motel nestled on New South Wales’ spectacular Cabarita Beach. In 2015, interior designer Anna Spiro, along with owners Elisha and Siobhan Bickle, transformed it into a chic and eclectic explosion of charm. I mean, the only white walls that exist are those of the hotel’s exterior – every square inch is covered in color and pattern! I always find myself scrolling through images of the Halcyon House when I need a bit of encouragement to simply take that oh-so intimidating design risk.
