COS Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

Today I dream about the new Spring/Summer 2013 by COS.

As COS is one of my favourite high-street shops I was really excited to finally see the lookbook for the new collection. I have to be honest, at first I wasn't that keen on it but after a closer look I started to love it!

The bleached out colour palette is like a breath of fresh air from the overtaking wintery blacks and greys seen everywhere on the streets at this time of the year. The washed out whites, pinks, greens and nudes are just perfect for the hot summer as well as the fabrics used in the collection. Everything is light, airy and breathable.

The thing I like the most here is the colour combinations - I would never say that candy cotton pink could look so good when combined with rich green or mustard yellow. As a big fan of the pastel colours I'm very pleased with the colour choices here and to keep the collection from being too sweet all the pieces look very structured.

Clean lines, simple shapes, the lack of prints and the characteristic COS collars made a pretty good combination and I can't wait to see the collection in street-style looks!

I'm sorry for the lack of updates lately, I'm relocating and starting from fresh so I'm really busy but soon it will be all back to normal!

Wooden Hut in French Alps

Today I dream about this dreamy wooden house located in the French Alps with Mont Blanc on the horizon.

I have always dreamed about a little secluded wooden hut in the middle on nowhere and this house just ticks all the boxes! Although the interior is not my style, I still love it - it's very atmospheric and just perfect for a winter holiday home.

What I love the most about this interior is the huge amount of open-space with high ceilings and big windows overlooking the snowy mountains. The large amount of natural wood, fur and leather accessories, cushions and throws make the interior really cosy too. The vintage oriental finds brought by the owners from all over the world add colour and personality to the home.

What's not to love? Well, maybe the heating bills... :)
