After visiting California, Nevada, and Florida and photographing what they deem as some of the best Mid-century modern architecture, artistic duo Geebird & Bamby returned to their studio in Wiesbaden, Germany to create the perfect new world. “The New World” is a series of photorealistic landscapes depicting anonymous places of the 20th century. The details are so impeccable, it’s easy to get lost in each image!

It all started with an old, yet stunningly cool, raincoat Alexander Stutterheim discovered in his grandfather’s barn on Arholma, an island in the Stockholm archipelago. After instantly falling in love with the practicality and sleekness of the coat, he found the right craftsmen and seamstresses to rework and perfect a modern fit. The result? Incredibly lightweight and impeccably tailored raincoats, each handmade in Poland. I just received my first Stutterheim this week and am officially ready for El Niño’s imminent arrival. But honestly, I would wear my new favorite raincoat any day – rain or shine.
Nothing used to feel more tragic than the end of summer. However, over the last few years, fall has quickly risen from the ranks as my favorite season. Perhaps it’s because the transitional weather is just glorious here in Northern California. Or that Quincy has made the holidays that much more enjoyable. Or because our relatively new home feels so incredibly cozy this time of year. Either way, I was recently inspired to give my kitchen a mini fall makeover with the ultimate crisp, autumnal pattern: plaid! From Target‘s extensive plaid collection to Adam Lippes‘ checkered collaboration, I mixed and matched beige, navy and orange prints to my heart’s content. That’s what I love about plaid – you can never go wrong mismatching patterns and colors. I love how everything turned out. And I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the start of fall than baking a fresh tart and cozying up with a blanket, a cup of coffee and a really good book.
