Somehow I have been always thinking that velvet is only perfect for curtains in theaters and there is no place for this fabric on the streets. But turns out, I was very wrong! During Fall/Winter 2016 runaway shows designers convinced us that velvet can be incorporated into our daily lives. More than that, fashionistas from all over the world showed how to rock velvet, whether it’s a dress, bag, top or a pair of perfect shoes.
Today I’m over inspired by any interiors filled with plants. The reason might be that I’m not able to grow anything at home (I just keep killing them all over again) and I’m super jealous of people who have green at their homes. There are a lot of health benefits of having indoor plants, but first of all they are an incredible interior part that is able to promote positive energy. So, what are you waiting for? Get inspired and add greens to your place!
November’s “Girl of the month” award goes to young and extremely talented fashion illustrator Jenny Walton based in New York. I’ve seen her on street style pages but just recently found out who she is. Jenny’s style is hard to define: classy, quirky, retro, sophisticated and definitely original. She likes to shop in thrift and vintage stores and finds a lot of treasures on flea markets. As Jenny says: “My style is simply a progression and combination of the individual pieces that I love. I think the most original style comes about this way. You don’t think about creating any sort of style, you just let it advance by itself over years of acquiring great pieces.” Well, I can’t agree more! And I swear I see Audrey through a lot of Jenny’s photos.
When it comes to interior design, there is no bigger inspiration than www.onekingslane.com. Every time I’m changing something around my apartment I always search for ideas there. I live with this thought that everything that surrounds us totally influences our mood, so I try to create the most positive and inspirational atmosphere around. One Kings Lane is a great place to look for unique things: pictures, furniture, accessories and even jewellery, it’s a resource where you can look for lifestyle ideas and trends, new home and lifestyle brands. Unfortunately they do not deliver outside of US but being in China, there is nothing that I can’t find on-line here:)
