Today I would like to introduce another new theme. The Week Winners will be about, as you might already have guessed, my favourite things of the week. Everything from a great tune to my latest finds be it fashion, home decor, art, stores etc. It might just as well be an interesting event, meal or place. Let’s go ahead right away, shall we?
1 Perfect timing it turned out to be when I bought these fur-lined Birkenstock sandals. Yesterday’s snow and lower temps made them just perfect for the indoors right now. And when the weather gets slightly warmer they will be perfect to dress down my everyday work outfits.
2 The new concept store from the Swedish COS, is a fresh, new take on their minimalist approach. In a corner position at the new, super cool shopping destination Coal Drops Yard in Kings Cross, London they have created a sleek store/art gallery. One of my favourite chairs designed by London based Faye Toogood has found it’s way there.
Every three months they will display a new art collection. The first one is promising with interesting artworks for as little as £40.
3 This week we got our first dose of real winter weather here in London, so as often as I can I’m positioning myself in the sofa next to the fireplace. A super oversized cashmere sweater and my also supersized teacup plus my new playlist with Stan Getz’s soft saxophone is how I work my way through the January blues. Another record on heavy rotation right now is AM Waves by duo Young Gun and Silver Fox (Love that name btw!). Songs like Lenny and Kingston Boogie has just that laid back West Coast vibe that I always been found of. The album is a tribute to 1970s Los Angeles and in my world that ticks many right boxes.
4. Last weekend I stayed at Miss Clara Hotel in Stockholm. It was a real design treat with it’s modern, minimalist interiors that’s still warm and welcoming. I will do a separate post about our stay soon along with some other Stockholm recs.
5. Been looking for a new take of ear jewellery for sometime now. One style I had in mind is the ear cuff kind that you put high up on the ear like a clip. The other one I been on the hunt for is a design that spreads out over the ear like you have more than one hole. I found one from Danish designer Pernille Lauridzen that was just right with a small pearl and the golden metal snaking its way on the ear. (To the left in the photo.) You can twist it round to find the fit that suits your ear the best.
