Crushed velvet with linen & gold accents! This is a series based around Calvin Klein's recent watch drop! Which are minimal and simplistic. We took a romantic twist on the campaign which is based around pausing in life to appreciate single moments. And of course more than ever, we have been treasuring our minutes. So here is a transitional outfit post, super excited to continue to share the outfit ideas into Spring! <3
Hawaii was incredible! We had some time to totally relax, go for long walks at dusk, eat A LOT of snow cones, sleep and go to bed at whatever time we decided, swim, dry off and swim again :)
Christian & I have spent the last few months settling into our new home here in Portland! It's one of the best decisions we've made, moving that is! There is plenty of action here in the new street. You can practically sit by the window all day and people watch. So I have been wanting to share some living room decor images plus let you guys know we are introducing prints to the 1924 store! The set are antique still life images based around a French countryside feel . Something which has inspired me since I first went to the South of France with my family at the age of 11! So you have to know when Christian and I are picking for the store, I am on the lookout for historic French pieces ALWAYS! - You can check them out here.
You'l also notice another piece of art which is truly breath-taking! By Shane Artistry (we both teared up when we saw the art for the first time). He paints with soft layers of oil revealing landscapes, that appear somewhat like a memory from a beautiful dream! I don't really know how else to describe it, just that the works are breath-taking and his colour palettes inspire us beyond words. You can see his work here.
Taking the Travelall out for the first time! Christian found it with Bend based 'Binder Boneyard', who transformed it from an unusable rusted garden shelter to one of the most beautiful things on wheels! We made a film in the process of styling some of the 1924 goods for the store! Couldn't be more happy with the result :) (check here for before and after process pictures!)
Over the past weekend we have been moving home! In amongst the culling and heavy lifting we've had to start re-decorating and finding pieces that resonate with what we are truly passionate about and love! So it got me excited to make a blog post on some recent collaborations with newer and older labels that create beautiful apothecary for the home, bottles that are beautifully branded and that are of course, extremely practical to have on your bathroom counter top - win win. So below we have Little Barn Apothecary (they are based out of Atlanta and have an INCREDIBLE body oil and cleanser which I use on almost every morning and evening). Secondly Commodity - Which are a group of perfume makers based around the world and create addictive scents! We also use the block of soap which scents your entire bathroom. And finally, of course, Le Labo, who never fail to overwhelm your senses in the best way. The labels are classic and look beautiful in the home :) These are just a simple few, there are a couple more which I'd love to photograph, so soon! I'll also so a house tour once it is complete! EXCITED, for now back to setting the antique room up! Blessings xx
Some new pottery pieces for our antique store! The above ones Christian & I sourced in New Zealand on the way traveling down to Dunedin! They are almost up on the store. I just got excited to share a blog post first :) I also included some other finds from Oregon we fell in love with! Pottery is such a beautiful way to style simple nooks. I also have some exciting news, that is we are moving at the end of the week. So we have been packing and refining all the antiques. I can't tell you how excited we are to switch up locations (the one we are currently in is leaking water), although to be honest, the excitement is more along the lines we get to style a house from scratch YYAYAYAY!!! All items from the 1924 antique store :)
Contessa Volpi are a swimwear label I have worked alongside a few years now. Enrica is a talented Italian designer, now based in Sydney and creating these pieces each by hand in Australia! Some of the most flattering, timeless designs I have found through their label. The fabric is quality with the needed thought that holds your body into a beautiful, flattering firm shape. I have grown up mostly by the ocean so swimming for me is almost like a ritual, in any kind of weather! I am also very picky with the designs however when seeing her's, you cant help to fall in love. (Also because it fits so well with my biggest ocean / holiday inspiration. I have added some images below for you to see!). So here we go, a recent image series we did together, with that early 1900s feel in mind, featuring the Adina one piece in Aubergine & the Elle Swimsuit in white!
A small look book we created for Stevie May with some favorite 2018 pieces! They are based here in Australia & we had a lot of fun using the Australian landscapes / heritage buildings and pubs! The designs all have these beautiful wraps and drapes signature to their style. It has also been an incredible month and a half back home. Christian and I returned to the Sunshine Coast yesterday from an amazing trip down south with friends discovering Melbourne, Thredbo and some more of the southern coastline (the twelve apostles). Now our time is almost up here for the start of the year, we will return to Portland by the end of the week (It has been some crazy traveling). I am motivated to set up the next snippet of a chapter, we have found some of our favorite antiques on this trip and are both over the moon to get them up on the store once we are back in Oregon! Happy new year for now you guys, I will see you sooooon <3
