escape the ordinary

green branches, late autumn weather, white lights, little carnations that bloomed in december inside my room, learning and playing and trying to grow a new soul inside the house, building a minimal deco around me and trying to escape the ordinary and live in the moment.
living in #white, #green, #minimal and #simplicity.

that's the lesson for 2015 and going on 2016.

there is never any ending to Paris and the memory of each person

"... who has lived in it differs from that of any other. we always returned to it no matter who we were or how it was changed or with what difficulties, or ease, it could be reached.
Paris was always worth it and you received return for whatever you brought to it."

neutral july

these are basically the prettiest moments i hold in my iphone from this july that, darn, flew by so fast. i feel so at peace with myself when i get to photograph neutral colors, it's like all falls into its place, the right way. i admired my cousin's renovated white&grey mini-loft close to the border with ukraine, after her wedding and i had my morning lemonade with my folks at a black balcony reminding me of paris for my birthday and chilled out by the lake on the afternoon, after walking all day with the white balloon through the city, ha!

the silent white

white hydrangea i took from the wedding deco i attended last weekend, new photos for the bedroom walls, the slow recovery of my beloved hair, the last peonie of this year and my dear Bob coming to visit me, he's like jumbo, i know!

light spaces | cluj

travelling to cluj, romania for a really short time filled my lungs with fresh air, good vibe and nostalgia. because i was a lazy cat and didn't had my camera with me, i have different frames taken with my iphone. i think they turned out pretty good.
lots of humans everywhere, old buildings that demand your eyes, boutiques and cafés, greenery and one of my favourite minimal place at the moment (will publish next time), where i had the simplest breakfast ever and industrial-meets-beautiful-corners everywhere.

definitely a place to return to.

highlights and shadows | june

few highlights of june, way more warmer than last year. 
i love the shadows that the afternoon light brings to my room, such beautiful shapes, inspiring me to frame the new white, so simple shoes from h&m, the succulent that bloomed at my window, the tiny birds that made their home under the roof next to me, my go-to black top, hair pins & minimal rings that i forget to put on most of the times and the alluring scents of chanel les exclusifs that are on my super wishlist, they are like a garden of flowers, divine.

faded naturelle

i have turned to the conclusion that april and may are the prettiest months of the year. everything is filled with light and color and you can't help but smile at each house garden or corner of the mountain, street or market. 
i really wish i could last the whole year, it would make life so much more vibrant and.. yes, i keep thinking about this period and paris and it always brings me chills. for the past years i've been saying to me that i'll get to live spring in that city and even if i haven't been that lucky so far, i haven't given up. it will come true, eventually.
until then i try to enjoy rain, sunbeams, chilly mountain wind, flower pots at my window, peonies on my table that smell di-vine, tons of fruits, perhaps too many, 30 days of yoga workouts, eagerness for my fragile hair to grow back, i really miss it, a lot, roadtrips here and there, browsing for wedding gowns and waiting for my london departure to come.
this has been the northern spring.

inspired by: Älvsborgsplan 7F


starting a new serie(s), a file called "inspired by" with photographs that make my heart and eyes skip a beat and fuel me with good vibes.
ain't this the most beautiful color palette to have in your home and around?
it sure is to me.

start from the scratch: buckets of white paiting for the walls, giving up the curtains, browsing ikea, praktiker, bricostore or farmer's market for green plants, another visit to ikea for clothing racks, a basic table, some bed sheets in pale colors, simple lightning materials, white thick papers for making your own posters, two or 3 vases, different shapes and sizes, perhaps some chairs, one by one, giving away/out of the dusted old clothing and stuff around the house that hasn't been used in over half a year, we all have them, i know.
and.. there's the clean start.

a tint of light and space

wow, is it that long since i've published photos around here? almost a month.
not that anyone would notice, except me, haha.
as i just finished indulging into a golden apple from the local farmer's market, guilty, guilty, i know, i look at these photos that i took in the last month and i realize that my passion for white is greater than ever, call it obsession if you may, but it truly makes my world go round and happier.
i cannot see myself living in a room that has all sorts of mixes of colors and patterns and not at least one big window with tons of light. i think i would genuinely be like a flower with no drops of water on the ground.
that makes my search for a good/ok/humble/balanced money-wise studio/room in london. my departure from my hometown is closer than ever, huh, in about 3 months i need a space in which i can function and start from 0 and i must feel at ease, otherwise how am i supposed to work and breathe and enjoy my life, right?
i'm grateful i had the opportunity to lay my eyes on a couple of no. of cereal mag, of which i hope i can enjoy more once i set my thing straight in london, until then, s, you're a ♥.
my wardrobe is a bit restrained at the moment and it comes down to black and white, more and more. here and there a hint of colour, on a backpack or socks or eyeshadow. and that's just fine.
as for jewelry i still have to -educate- myself into wearing them more often, i'm still a kid often and i just buy them, admire and leave them on display. mhm.
i also keep saying i need a new black hat, i have a brown one and a bowler black one, but i need a slightly bigger one in black for the spring/summer/autumn season. h&m has the perfect ones, i just have to get there.
duly noted.
and between these cold mountains i keep waiting for spring to come and i trick myself with hints of cerisier that you absolutely fall inlove with.

the meaning of light

details of these february days that made my eyes and heart happy to be able to photograph them in between lights, home, like mom's constant "madness" to bake yummy things that make me sin, i confess, darn it. like the carnations i was lucky to found just in time for her birthday and their spring-y scent, the moment kinfolk arrived under my finger tips thanks to a kind man, the divine flavour of fresh strawberries and the joy of buying the first fragile snowdrops.

tales from a nordic room

this is the tale of one of the moments when i stick my clumsy pale nose into making a tart out of the ingredients that simply pop-up in my head: cottage cheese, vanilla, stevia, eggs and a lot of yummy yummy thoughts and desires to get and know more about the beauty of styling.

decomposing beauty

i slowly teached myself to seek what i need in the smallest of detail(s) and it always pains me when the flower petals are starting to leave their head down and fall, one by one.
and so i foolishly imagine i bring an homage to the beauty of my white bouquet of tulips, taking my phone camera under each possible curve and shape their green and white has.
