Do you remember that unforgettable scene in Auntie Mame with the fabulously far-fetched, post modern hydraulic benches designed by the fictional Danish designer Yul Ulu? Well, interior designer Kendall Wilkinson‘s hovering cantilevered benches, created for LUXE Magazine’sMaison de Luxe Show House, would have made Mame proud. The benches and the infinity mirror with bright yellow flowers are the show stopping features of this custom designed space. Honestly, wow.
I’m absolutely lovingPenfield‘s recent comeback and their newest collection of classic heritage-style outerwear. Originally produced over 30 years ago for the cold New England climate, Penfield is churning out leather and wool trimmed down jackets and vests perfect for today. If only I could settle on a style . . . oh, and some legit winter weather would be nice too.
Martina Nehrling, a Chicago based artist, is inspired by the chaotic nature of life and the many colors that come from it. Her work is created by an accumulation of multiple single-colored brushstrokes, making each composition seemingly elementary and incredibly complex at the same time.
It’s impossible not to pine for almost every ensemble from Derek Lam‘s pre-fall collection. Relaxed elegance is perfected with low waisted pants, floor sweeping skirts, tailored blazers and fur trimmed coats. I’m loving the use of greens and am especially mad about the brocade and textured striped pants!
Would you be up for spending the night in a canvas tent, nestled in the Swiss Alps – just you, the snow, and the stars? I would! Especially if it’s as cool as the Whitepod Hotel. This hotel is comprised of 15 geodesic domed pods, furnished with a modern Alphine aesthetic and overlooking Lake Geneva. Guests have access to 3 private ski lifts which can be operated 24 hours a day upon request and 7 kilometers of exclusive trails. Bearing very little impact on the surrounding environment, the Whitepod is the epitome of eco winter glamping.
