I’m never not in the market for a new, old rug. So you can see how after stumbling upon interior designer Veronica Hamlet‘s collection of vintage Moroccan rugs, pillows and baskets, I know I’m in trouble. The vibrant colors and distinctive patterns . . . be still my heart and be kind to my wallet.
I’ve got a new crush and her name is Polder, a clothing label started by Dutch sisters Madelon Lanteri-Laura and Natalie Vodegel. Their childhood spent growing up in the forested hills of Netherlands plays an important role in their minimalist approach and their years spent working in Paris for brands like Anne Marie Beretta, Marcel Marongiu and Hermès injects that covetable French chic-ness to the clothing. Just look at all the wonderful details in the stitching and construction! I hope that it’s just a matter of time before we start seeing this fresh label stateside.
The unique architecture of European cities has intrigued Portuguese photographer André Vincente Gonçalves. So much so that he’s dedicated an entire photographic series to the Windows of The World. It’s incredible how unique and recognizable each city is. What window is calling you? Venice’s Burrano is enticing me with all that vibrant color.
It’s been a few years since we heard the name Daryl K in the news (some of my first and favorite designer pieces were purchased from her Bond Street shop far too long ago), which is why I was intrigued to learn that the iconic designer is back at it again with a 70s inspired, denim heavy collaboration with Madewell. The 18 piece capsule collection launches today with high-waisted flared jeans, denim jackets, suede skirts and ankle cut leather boots . . . wearable wardrobe essentials with a rock ‘n’ roll edge and an attention to tailoring that Daryl K is known for. And there you have it, Daryl Kerrigan is back at it again and I couldn’t be more excited about her comeback.
There’s something about the intentional ease of illustrator Grace Helmer’s oil paintings that brings me joy. The whimsy quality in which she depicts scenes from everyday life makes me appreciate the beauty in the ordinary.
