NYFW happened and one of my favourite collections was Nanushka’s Mystery Child collection. It’s been so exciting to see this brand grow over the last two years and even see a few Vancouver stores (Hills and Nordstrom to name a few big ones) pick them up (most likely the vegan leather puffer). I’m obsessed with the soft purple colour that you can see throughout my moodboard above. I’m also loving the cream slides on the bottom right. They’re for sure on my wish list this spring.
Copenhagen Fashion Week
Before New York, Copenhagen celebrated their new fall collections and I have to admit, I think CPH is my favourite fashion week. I swooned over Cecilie Bahnsen in particular, with their feminine dresses and voluminous silhouettes. I don’t know where I’d wear these beautiful pieces, but it would be kind of cool to wear as an alternative wedding dress.
Take Care of Yourself
This quote is basically my life right now. School is in full swing and I have next to no time left to create new content, which is a bit of a bummer for my sanity. I’ve come to acknowledge having some sort of way to express my creativity is an integral part of my own self-care and well-being. I’ve also been getting in my head how badly I just want to finish school and start gaining real work experience in interior design. I have to constantly remind myself to trust the process and appreciate where i am and just settle in and embrace it. It’s so hard though! Having a regular pay check is nice, but my own longterm happiness is also important.
Sophie Bille Brahe
I saw Jeanette Madsen wearing Sophie Bille Brahe, a Danish jewellery brand, and now I’m hooked. I have my eye on the pearl hoop above and maybe one day I’ll make money again and be able to buy this necklace.
A while ago, Architectural Digest featured Mandy Moore’s house on their cover. They showcased her living room fireplace which had a custom terrazzo shelf and it just looked sooooooo good. The house itself is amazing and the design was done by one of my favourite designers, Sarah Sherman Samuel. I’d love to incorporate this into a bathroom counter and backsplash kind of deal (maybe for a school project?).
Last, but not least… I want to introduce you to Arent&Pyke, one of my favourite interior design firms based out of Australia. They play with colour, but in a way that you wouldn’t be scared to bring into your home in fear it would be out of style in 20 years. Their content is a major source of inspo for me and I love seeing what new ideas they’ll come up with next. One of my teachers told us we, as adults, are prone to editing ourselves and always thinking inside the box. She encourages us to think outside the box without restricting ourselves, so it’s great to see other designers coming up with truly original ideas. It’s something I hope to incorporate into my own process when I start working in the field.
