{décor inspiration | print & pattern : always de gournay}


by roséline

de-gournay

. . . and it seems the love affair with floral patterns -- and de gournay's especially -- is unending, for only last week, a glimpse into a beautifully papered room, and this week, and a bath so stunning, it is nearly an enchanted indoor garden . . .

{fashion inspiration | runway : marchesa resort 2013}


by roséline


summer-soirees
marchesa1

. . . a flurry of bejewelled necklines, feathers, embroidery and lace, crystals, and "enough tulle to outfit the ballets russes", the marchesa resort 2013 collection is utterly perfect for those dreamy summer nights in "enchanted gardens . . . among the whispering and the champagne and the stars" . . .

. . . and because can never resist floral anything, and especially in a cheerful skirt suit for the office, also fell in love with the stella mccartney resort collection, with its vibrant colours and ombré sundresses, but most of all, for the layers of lace overlaying flirty fringed skirts and dresses . . .

{happy wednesday | the week is flying & hello}


by roséline


hello-header2
collage-oof

window-oof

. . . hello! had meant to stop by yesterday morning, but it was one of those crazy days that began with an early morning stop by the salon for bardot-esque hair, meeting with an old friend from out of town at eleven [so lovely to see you, jessica!], and then a four-hour photo shoot that included gold sequins in the afternoon, with breaks for strawberries & perrier, followed by an early dinner, and then home to catch up . . .

can hardly believe that it's wednesday already -- hope you're having a beautiful week so far, —roséline xo

{summer office outfit inspiration : june sunset & bits of gold}


by roséline


at-the-office-hed
workwear

. . . and you know it's summertime when the weekend links are abandoned altogether, and this weekend, there were walks in sun-drenched rose gardens and glasses of wine for two, there was, of course, sunday brunch [a new place we hadn't been before], and time at the shops, browsing pretty perfumes and shimmery shadow, and hopefully things will slow down a little by the end of this week, so that the links are not missed again, but for now, it's a new week, and back to work, and so, a little summer office inspiration to begin the week, in perfect shades of coral and sunset, and bits of gold . . .

{décor inspiration | print & pattern : floral and leopard}


by roséline


bright-june-mornings
floral-leopardprint

. . . very much looking forward to redecorating the bedroom in the coming months, and have been happily collecting inspiration, but always come back to this classic, miles-redd-designed room, with its canopy bed and settee at the foot, mirrored night table and crisp bed linens, and most of all, its perfect mix of print and pattern, with impossibly elegant de gournay florals intermingling with leopard print . . .

pink-blossoms-bicycle

. . . just one look, and it's plain to see that am surrounded by flowers, [mostly roses, and sometimes peonies], nearly everyday, and it's no secret, the longstanding love affair there has been with blossoming trees -- magnolias and cherry blossoms -- and so, upon happening upon this image of a million camellias, fallen petals and all, could not help but be completely and utterly swept away . . .

{summer outfit inspiration : a crisp shirt & floor-grazing skirt}


by roséline


perfect-summer-whites

. . . so far this summer, having been living in short, billowy dresses, and had nearly forgotten how elegant an ensemble a crisp white blouse and a full, floor-grazing skirt can be -- perfectly carolina herrera-esque, and as perfect for early mornings at the office, as for long, sultry summer nights . . .

. . . this week's {at the shops} is grace loves lace, a bridal boutique from brisbane, queensland, australia, where bohemian vintage charm reigns, in a romantic mix of french laces and silks, handmade accessories and lingerie, and a collection that takes inspiration from the ‘free-spirit’ of the bohemian era combined with the nostalgic charm and romance of vintage elegance . . .

{technology | a question about books : actual versus digital?}


by roséline


at-the-office-hed
books1

. . . all meetings & appointments, since the beginning of the year, have been written, by hand, in a daybook with gilded edges, while p uses an online calender and his iphone to keep track of things; similarly, still prefer to be lost in the pages of actual books, while p does most of his reading now, on an ipad, and was wondering -- do you still read actual books, or have you switched over to digital?

. . . and we've left the city behind for just a little more than a day, but it's just the right amount of time for coffees for two on lazy sunday mornings, and more than time enough to remember how wonderful it is to fall madly in love all over again . . .

hope you're having the most wonderful mid-june weekend, and that it's beautiful where you are, roséline xo
