. . . as you know, there has always been a longstanding love affair here, with all things gold, but the hammered metal cabinets in interior designer, jean-louis deniot's, paris apartment takes things to an entirely different level . . .

{p.s.} more glimpses of this space & a hammered metal sink

. . . in the middle of the north pacific ocean, on one of the most remote islands in the world, there live millions of birds -- laysan albatross and black-footed albatross, and, despite the island's location thousands of miles away from civilization . . .

. . . our lovely, lovely houseguest is set to depart in less than an hour, and so, only a few moments to say hello and to tell you about the beautiful work of painter, ryan pickart, whose portraits in oil have a magical, klimt-like quality, and in the artist's own words, bridge the gap between abstract and reality . . .

{décor inspiration | two lovely things : perfect neutrals & bits of gold}

. . . and with all this talk of styling, we, jessica & i, and have been dreaming up ideas for above the fireplace mantle over fruit custard tarts, and ornate and gilded mirrors from a favourite antique shop came to mind, or a perfectly pastel abstract painting; but then, came upon this room, above, architect & interior designer donald romualdez's new york apartment, and was stunned by the dramatic simplicity of white framed in gold . . .

{p.s.} the chairs are by danish designer poul kjaerholm, and the petrified wood tables were originally commissioned by christian dior

[above, another option, a more pared down mirror, perhaps, above the mantle, intermingled with an extravagantly ornate console, books and leopard print]

. . . as you know, have been collecting styling inspiration for an upcoming feature for a while now, falling in love with this kitchen & this secret garden picnic along the way, but, in the search for grand and fantastical things, had forgotten how lovely things can be, arranged simply, a bouquet of pink roses in the sink . . .

{a new week & hello}

{a new week & hello}

. . . hello, hello!  and it feels as if it has been ages since we last spoke, but has really been only a few days, [and a little time to unplug is always a good thing], but the actual reason for the brief absence is the arrival of an out-of-town houseguest early last thursday morning, and so, there have been dinners and shops and a day in st. andrews, late-night conversations and [despite the decidedly non-springlike weather], traipses about town, sunday markets, and castles upon hilltops . . .

hope you've had a beautiful weekend & that your week is off to a perfect start, —roséline xo

The poetry of Iceland lies, in part, with the ferocious fires, volcanic landscapes, and its counter: brisk ice.  And through its dramatic lands -- its rustic and magnificent mountain ranges and vibrant fields, and in them, we discover a breeze of life that soars throughout the island -- a mythical, otherworldly breeze of life well lived and thoroughly enjoyed . . .

{take me away № 43 | travel guide № 8 : iceland}

Take inspiration from the honesty and authenticity of the lands, from the merriment of the people, who joyfully swim in the brisk waters along the coast; take inspiration from a place brimming with natural splendour and unspoiled destinations.  For today, we set off to Iceland to uncover some of the greatest treasures to see, things to do, and of course, many little surprises along the way . . .

{take me away № 43 | travel guide № 8 : iceland}

For those who long for adventure, Iceland will certainly not disappoint.  Though its population is rather small compared with many other parts of the world -- with just 320.000 residences -- its culture is not bound by numbers.

Whether you enjoy spa treatments, and plan a day at the famous Blue Lagoon, immersed in the geothermal spa set amongst nature [alongside many offered beauty treatments], or wish to soar above the land, by helicopter, for a private tour alongside the birds . . .
