Jesus, times flies. It´s already October, soon mid-October. After a long and warm September, fall has finally arrived. I'm still in the transitioning faze, having trouble dressing for the colder weather. Wanting to wear skirts and high heels one day and the next big comfy knits and sneakers... My wish list for October is somewhat ambivalent in the same manners as my state of mind for the time being. Give me a couple of more weeks and I'm sure I get a hang of it.
One of the trends spotted on the runways these last weeks are metallics, gold, silver and all in between. Metallics in fashion makes me think of spectacular looks and usually makes my mind wander to New Years festivities. But metallics can also be really beautiful as accents in spring and summer, think sandals, clutches and why not a swimming suit or bikini in silver? A great accessory to sun kissed skin. Interior wise we´ve seen the metallics for some time now but they are still hanging in there.
In our hallway I´ve used mirrors in different shapes and sizes to create something fun and inspirational to a space usually not considered high priority. Which is too bad since it´s the room you first enter when inviting someone home. Please don´t pay any attention to the sofa, it´s my next make over project...
As the season predicts, red is the given colour. I´ve never used a lot of red, neither for fashion, nor for interior. But this summer I bought a red dress from Roland Mouret, and since then I´m hooked. At least when it comes to the fashion part. The interior part is yet to come...
1. Stunning red dress from Altuzzara.
2. I woulden´t say no to these little babies, heels from Aquazurra.
3. This classic in red is on my wishlist...
4. Vivid red Indian temple.
5. I´m far from as bold as to paint my dining room this shade, but I love it.
6. This beatiful dining room belongs to Net-a-Porter founder Natalie Massenet, check out the rest of her stunning London home here.
7. Oscar de la Renta dress in his signature shade. A certain princess wore this dress in another colour for the Nobel dinner.
8. A perfect dress for almost all occasions, Roland Mouret.
