If you feel kind of like us, you’re already having an eye out for spring, and can’t wait to bring out the lighter clothes and try on the new looks of the summery season. One of the hot trends this year will be flowers in all shapes and forms: from printed patterns to laser-cut shapes or dimensional applications… Lots to look forward to and play with in our outfits this year!

A few days ago, Stockholm Design week 2014 came to a close, inspiring visitors with new design and furniture faves to write and dream about. Several pieces that we loved from the Design Week image stream (#2014sdw) came from a group of students of the Art College Goteborg Sweden, and a project called once upon a chair:
Taggad chair designed by Hanna Kastl-Lungberg and Nellie Karsberg Chair “Stolen Embrace”, designed by Marie Wallgren, Jennifer Johansson and Mikael Martinsson
“Open Arch” by Christopher Gleeson and Petra Andersson
As you may guess from the title of their website, the chairs are fairytale-inspired.
Aren’t they cool, and beautifully designed?
Across the board, we spotted a lot of vintage and retro inspiration, interpreted in a modern way:

What caught your eye from the Fall Winter 2014 collections so far?
If you’ve followed our blog in the last few weeks, you’ve heard the buzz already – Bjoern von Rotz just opened a top level hair and make-up academy in Zurich, Switzerland to fashion industry talents with big dreams! An intriguing detail that we haven’t shared yet: the school welcomes not only hair and make-up artists, but also creatives from other artistic disciplines such as architects, artists, designers or stylists. In this approach akin to international design schools, the academy promotes creativity and a dialogue between different creative fields, inspiring students to think big, unconventionally, and unleash their full talents.
Craving a breeze of fresh inspiration for your creative work? Take a closer look at this intriguing new academy!

Have a great and inspired week, everyone!
Ever wondered how the super rich travel, and where they stay? Here’s a glimpse into their world, and one of their options: Soho House, an exclusive club with properties in select locations worldwide. The club was founded in London, in 1995, as an invitation-only private members club for those in film, media and creative industries. It has since opened its doors a bit to the public with hotels – with certain stipulations for non-members:
Talking about another world, right?
A peek at their public hotel and bed & breakfast properties:
Soho House Berlin
Soho House New York
Soho House New York
Highroad House London
Shoreditch East London
Opened to the public is a relative description though – some of Soho House’s hotels may still add $1000 to your tab for just one night. There are options though, starting at around $270, or you may consider a visit to one of their restaurants, spas, or cinemas:
Electric Cinema London
The Electric Cinema in London for example is sure to leave you with a lasting impression…
Choose from front row beds, back row sofas, or luscious armchairs, starting at only $30.
So, … indulge, relax, and enjoy!
