COS looks to Mies and Mondrian for first Chicago store

The works of architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and artist Piet Mondrian influenced the geometric and pared-back design of this shop for fashion brand COS. The first COS store in Chicago occupies a new four-storey building on East Oak Street, designed by the company’s in-house team of architects. Sandwiched between two existing structures, the

6 things I liked this week (from last week)

A brief overview of some of the things I saw and liked last week, delayed because we went on a quick trip out of town last week and I was enjoying disconnecting for those days! The whole family visited friends, spent the day at the beach flying kites and ate at some new restaurants. It was nice to to step out of our routine and stay up late, eat candy (mostly the kids), and make it all up as we go along. But now we’re back home and back in our rhythm so this is a catch up from what I saw online back then.
Nordiska Kok styled by the talented and dynamic duo, Sundling/Kickén.

Autumn news from COS, I like the brown tones in these images as well as that shaped skirt.

This Cobra lamp from Artilleriet swivels 360 ° around to project light in different directions. Cobra was designed by Elio Martinelli in 1968 and was of the first lighting fixtures made with a special resin casting system. Also it’s this functional sculptural type of piece that I love so much right now.

Next-level 5 strand braids from the Jill Sander’s runway, I’m putting this on my weekend to do list of tutorials to youtube!

Maiju’s beautiful styling of Swedish Midnatt‘s new organic bedding line, this Dromedary color is heading for Elin’s bed now and is a very simple way of making her room feel more seasonal Fall ready.

These clay, wax-filled jars from H&M are candles and they come in three color ways and two sizes, the largest being a lidded jar. I like that the candles can live two lives, once the wax has burned down clean out the remainder and reuse your jar to store small things like cotton balls or other toiletries!

Committed To A Better Future

I very rarely feature fast fashion brands as I think there’s a better way to do things but when I discovered Mango’s Committed Collection I wanted to show my support. Fast fashion brands are not going to be able to change their ways overnight but testing the waters with sustainable collections is a good start.

The Oslo home of interior stylists and shop owners

The home of Alessandro D’Orazio and Jannicke Krakvik who compose the Italian and Norwegian styling Kråkvik&D’Orazio, respectively.
It’s a home I’ve seen before, bits and pieces thanks for Instagram and even some thanks to their collaboration with Frama’s launch of their apothecary collection in the home.
This is more of a full tour though, allowing us to get a glimpse of their custom bathroom and the couple’s store, Kollekted By. Found these photos thanks to a feature on the NY Times.

Benches by Max Lamb for Milan Design Week.

Skincare has really been on my mind lately, I’m sure the arrival of Spring has something to do with it. There are so many enticing products, where do I even begin? This one looks interesting, but maybe I’m only attracted to the packaging?

Green Spring: Seasonal Inspiration from COS x HAY ’17

March is officially here and while I could comment about how quickly February passed by (because it really did) I’d rather focus on what’s to come. Spring is a much loved season and lets us put the dark and damp winter season behind us, which after several months we are very ready for. It means new colors and foliage rather than snow and long forgotten plants. We tend to spend more time outside and feel invigorated by the hope and energy brought about with more sunshine and new growth. It’s not just climate, it’s also personal. Spring is the perfect time to make new plans, shake off the lethargy of the previous months and bring some of this freshness into our homes and wardrobes.

The recent collaboration between Swedish COS and Danish HAY brands brings us soft greens and warmer hues than we’ve been used to seeing in recent times. Personally it makes me want to buy some fresh flowers or better yet, take a walk in the woods and pick my own. It makes me want to declutter, which we’ve been working on since January so it’s only moderate changes rather than a huge overhaul of our things. It makes me look forward to fresh fruit, longer days, shorter pant lengths and natural highlights in my hair from time spent in the sun.

The collection doesn’t seem to be available in the US version of COS but if you are in Europe or elsewhere you can shop directly from their web shop. I’ve found some of the HAY pieces from the collection for you below, can in case you can’t access the COS collection.

Hi everyone! This week has been slow start but I’m breaking away from talking about interiors for a moment because I have a fun giveaway for a $100 giftcard with Famous Footwear, which you can enter on Instagram by following me and @famousfootwear. Also because who doesn’t love/need shoes, right?

Giveaway lasts for 24 hours so go comment and good luck. :)

Thank you to Famous Footwear for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

5 minimal flats

Flats have become a staple in my wardrobe since becoming a mom. I used to love wearing heals before kids and didn’t mind enduring the pain or blisters because honestly I felt a bit more confident and appreciated the added height. It’s not that having kids means you can’t wear what you want, you just quickly see how some clothes, shoes can create extra work or slow you down, like heels.

Here are 5 minimal flats you can wear from now into Fall and no kids necessary. ;)
