Contrast - COS AW17




 " the variation and the creative interaction between different, even contradictory elements"

The latest issue of COS magazine is out and I really like this edition inspired by
 the contrasts in the AW17-collection of COS. 

The campaign for this season, photographed on location in the 
Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, shows a brand new collection with
 new cuts and proportions for the classic items,  inspired by geometric shapes 
with architectural lines in a color palette of dark chestnut, navy and light blue,
 grey, olive green and strong tones of red including some beautiful and 
stylish items in burgundy... definitely my favorite for this coming season!

find all about the new collection here and be inspired!

tapered terrazzosteps in this Copenhagen apartment"

Light and spacious with brown, beige and natural details









One of my favorite apartments  that I admired during the weekend is

Just loved the stylish furniture, the perfectly styled cabinet on the wall, 
The nice prints, the lovely children's room, the simple accessories and especially the 
wooden coat racks in the bedrooms that we see more and more lately.

The beautiful monochrome tones mixed with the 
brown, terra, beige and natural details and all the beautiful stylish details
 created a cozy and warm autumn atmosphere
Just perfect inspiration to start this rainy Monday and the new week 
Wish you all a happy one!

My rainy friday morning started with the discovery of this stunning apartment 
while visiting some of my fav Swedish brokerage sites

 I was attracted by the harmonious atmosphere 
 created by the mix of warm natural tones, the beautiful design classics, 
the stunning artworks , stylish accessories and the use of fresh greens

Just another perfect exemple on how to give a small apartment a
spatial look, don't you think so?

lamplove - W171 Alma lamp






.
A few monts ago, when I saw them them the first time,  I really fell for this 
beautiful perfectly composed lamp that I see more and more 
on my IG timeline lately. 

The Wästberg w171 Alma lamp, designed by Tham & Videgård , 
was originally created for a new co-working creative facility project  Alma in
Stockholm and I was attracted immediately by the shape of the lamp 
which is based on a rotated sine wave, where light and shadow create a readily
 recognizable character

The lamp is available in two different white shades: Signal white and Grey white and
according the designers the soft and reduced shape creates a cozy atmosphere that 
provides a sculptural feeling, even in daylight, when it satins matte 
the surface and the colors on the surface appear.

nine Apartments by BTH bostad.  Ruxandra Halleröd at Christian Halleröd Design and

SKULPTUR - Eva Lang





 "At first glance, Eva Lange's sculptures may seem deceptive. Their distinctive lines and white surfaces indicate abstraction and an uncompromising relationship to form. But Eva Lange’s art is not abstract, nor does it intend to mislead the viewer. These sculptures are figurative in the strictest sense of the word – and sincere. It is perhaps a different kind of representational art than the one we are most familiar with; a kind of figuration that goes beyond external characteristics, and keeps on searching, inward, in the hope of capturing that which is the essence of the poppy, the tree, the rain, and the heart."

It still takes a while but now that the days are slowly getting shorter, 
first signs of autumn are arriving and while my mailbox is filled with the
latest Christmas items and ideas,  I must admit I already caught myself 
thinking about wishlists!

As I have said many times, IG is a great source of inspiration for me, 
so when I saw the amazing sculptures and the beautiful book - designed by Dry -
about the work of Eva Lang (Member of the Royal Academy of Arts)   at the
IG-feed of Dry studios today,  I started to fill my wishlist immediately... 

The book consists of such beautiful pictures of her amazing work,
 shows the story behind about her creative work and looks so inspiration...  
A real musthave in my opion when you love art and sculptures! 

You can find all about the book Skulptur here and discover her work as an 
ever-broadening investigation into the nature of things...
