{shopping | spring style inspiration : the classic trench, part four}

by roséline

. . . every spring, long before the the magnolia blossoms colour the branches a pale shade of champagne, and long before the intoxicating scent of lilacs fills the air, there is the anticipation of sunny days warm enough for a nothing but a belted trench coat and open toed sandals, and since today is one such day, amazingly, and all of a sudden, shall not waste another moment -- but first, in case you are still searching for the perfect one, a few favourites below . . .

{décor inspiration : ornate austerity}

. . . impossibly stylish and full of excitement, with a bit of scandal, of course.  I wanted the room to be just like Mick and Bianca: luxe and decadent, but with a rock 'n roll edge.


isn't this room astonishing?  designed by catherine kwong for the san francisco decorator showcase, and inspired by mick & bianca jagger in the '70's, it is the very definition of ornate austerity [here & here], with its dark and dramatic painted floor inspired by the paintings of cy twombly, gilded mirrors and crown moulding, and of course, glamorous bits of gold . . .

. . . and while it may have seemed that spring would never arrive, this past weekend has shown that it is finally, at long last here, and will soon fade into summer, and so, thought it might be lovely to begin the week with this beautiful editorial shot by giovanni castel : bianca balti & david gandy in nothing but dolce & gabbana, amidst the paradise of a lush summery backdrop dipped in deep greens and intermingled with roses and lace . . .

. . . have been meaning to share these photographs for ages now, from a few months ago, on a spring-like day in mid-feburary -- valentine's day, actually -- a day always considered to be a holiday around here, regardless what day of the week it may be; and it as happens, this one was especially lovely, with warm sun and azure skies, and so, it was off to the countryside and a drive along the coast, for castles and quaint cafés and apricot frangipane, and most of all, the romance of crashing waves . . .

. . . and yesterday was one of those startlingly bright and sunny spring days, especially after the recent april showers; the kind that catches everyone off-guard and creating armfuls of winter coats and cashmere scarves while out and about -- the kind that makes one pause in whatever it was that was planned for that day, to stop for a moment and sit in the park, or on a terrace for a leisurely coffee, or pick up as many bouquets of roses and tulips that on can possibly carry; and while tomorrow, there may be rain, today, today is the beginning of another such spectacularly bright and sunny day, and so, it's à bientôt for a bit, for coffee and rays of golden sun, falling on cheekbones and lashes . . .

. . . and after the rain, blue skies forever, and there are lists and lists and emails from five months ago still unanswered, and coffee and more coffee, a lunch date and waiting, and happy reunions to come, and so many lovely things to look forward to, that it's all one can do to keep thoughts from drifting to the clouds . . .

{style inspiration : the eternally chic trench coat}

. . . the sudden realisation that it is already nearly the end of april -- where has the month gone? and since today is grey skies and overcast, it's all about trench coats and fresh baguettes, should think . . .

{on bicycles and baskets filled with flowers}

. . . as you know, rather the romantic sort, and had always dreamed of bicycling along the cobblestone streets [despite being more of the taxi sort], hair flowing and summer dress billowing, heels on pedals and a wicker basket overflowing with baguettes and roses; and so, a few months ago, picked up a pashley princess [us / uk] for this very thing -- and since, there have already been many adventures along the way -- antique shops & cafés and sunset rides along the coast -- and the summer has yet to begin . . .

work-of-art
{places : at the atelier}

. . . one of the very best things about work is that one day, the office may be at a desk, and another, it may be at a cosy café, a flower shop, or the beach, and so for today, a look at what may be "the office" for artists, places of light and colour and so much inspiration . . .

{monday, monday | at the office & hello}

. . . and there have been a few major projects happening simultaneously for the past little while now, but none as important asvtomorrow's meeting, first thing, which has been in the plans & schemes stages for a million weeks and months, and now, finally, it all comes down to this; and so the rest of the [nearly ending] workday will be spent organising and checking and double-checking that everything is perfect, and that nothing is amiss, and then, the rest of the time shall be spent in the last of the april sun, perhaps in search of roses the colour of morning mist . . .

happy monday! hope your week is off to a beautiful start, —roséline xo

{fashion | style inspiration : the little white dress}

. . . and while on the topic of spring things, isn't this wisp of a dress the loveliest thing? so very ethereal and as perfect for the office on a late-april morning, as dinner on a terrace afterward . . .

{decor inspiration | two lovely things : bedside tables & gallery walls}

. . . the very same kate moss print, shot by craig mcdean, hangs in the coral-coloured powder room, but in a lavishly gold-leafed frame, but hadn't realised how very lovely it would also look, in burled wood frame, especially, especially when intermingled with black and white and bits of red and gold . . .

{decor inspiration | two lovely things : bedside tables & gallery walls}

. . . and of course, was inextricably drawn to the bedroom, above, for have always, always adored toile, [and the bedroom is positively enveloped it in -- the walls and bed linens], but had never thought to pair the pattern with black, and yet the look is rather fresh and modern, with just a dash of countryside charm . . .

{spring style inspiration : a belted jacket and bare legs}

. . . on the way out the door on this sunny sunday, and inspired by alexa chung's easy spring style -- and while it may not be quite warm enough for bare legs today, a light belted jacket over a billowy dress may be just the thing . . .
