[Fashion Fridays] Hunkydory S/S 2015

About a year ago I had some pillows made while I was redecorating my house. I found some silk fabric on sale and went with it. They turned out nice and simple. End of story.

Until I read this post on A Cup of Jo (great blog!) where Joanna recommends sleeping on a silk pillowcase to prevent wrinkles. Of course, I'm skeptical of that, but when I had to share my regular pillows with some overnight guests and was stuck with using the silk ones, I haven't turned back!

Now, whether it is keeping my wrinkles at bay is another story, but I am really loving silk these days.

All that to say that I LOVE HUNKYDORY'S Spring/Summer 2015 lookbook! They definitely know how to design with silk and it comes out beautifully. Enjoy!

[Style Saturday] Factory Windows

I'm a huge fan of repurposing, especially when it creates a unique design in utility and style. These repurposed factory windows are to die for... would you put them in your home? Spill the deets!

How gorgeous are these resin bracelets made with dried flowers and other beautiful natural materials?

[Saturday Style] Perfect Navy Blue & White Kitchen

My absolute favorite design colors are navy blue, white and gold. I can't explain what I find so perfect about it, but I continue and continue to come back to this color combination. And strangely enough, my alma mater also has the same colors. (weird)

So when I saw this kitchen from Brittany Makes, I fell immediately in love. Just look at her!


She's still finishing the flooring, but enjoy these photos of the most amazing kitchen EVER.

Ok, that's a bit exaggerated. But seriously, enjoy this fabulous kitchen.

[Monday Models] Natalia Vodianova

When my computer died about 6 months ago, I lost all of my notes on my list of favorite models and from previous fashion shows. I know, it was tragic.

I'm slowly starting back up and today I have a real star to share. Natalie Vodianova is one of my absolute favorites. Not only is her work flawless always, she is a super cool woman with 4 children!! And she's Russian, which makes her automatically cool.
Natalia, aka. Supernova, has this amazing quality of switching from girlish to sexy and professional.

On top of all of her modelling success, she started a non-profit to benefit children in Russia. It's called Naked Heart.

Here's what she's been up to recently...

This Spanish duo Pichi & Avo are super talented. This is some of my favorite street art - realistic, painting-worthy, unique with a bit of traditional graffiti thrown in. Love it!

Gunjan Aylawadi's Intricate Paper Artwork

Incredible. Absolutely phenomenal. It's work like this that makes me wish I had followed a creative field, doing something unique, mentally challenging and wildly fulfilling.

Gunjan Aylawadi creates these pieces from paper. Yes. Paper. Of her work, she says,

What I enjoy most about making my work is the experience people have when they look at it. They stop for a moment to have a closer look and the moment turns into long minutes of being fascinated by the beauty a simple medium like paper can add to the work infront of their eyes.

[Saturday Style] Round Windows

A new daily series... Saturday Style! I love home design, but don't write about it too often here. That's all about to change on Saturdays as I begin to share my favorite curated home designs.

First up, round windows. I got the inspiration from this post by Lauren on the website HonestlyWTF. How cool are round windows? And the possibilities that can be made with them are surprising. Just check out these designs below.
