Aesop :: Atlas of Attraction | Gift Kits

November 4, 2018


Each year, Aesop collaborates with a designer on its gift kits, a specially curated range of items for the Christmas season. This time , with a new design in collaboration with Dutch couturier Iris van Herpen, it is something you might not want to miss.

 

Collectively titled ‘Atlas of Attraction’, the kits celebrate why people are inevitably drawn to particular places, ideas or one another at year’s end.

‘Movement and memory endlessly unfold, creating patterns of connection and attraction.’ Iris van Herpen

I use Aesop for my primary skincare , and of course I like to mix it up, but I do go back to my favorites when they are finished. These kits are a great way for me to replenish my stock, and I am also left with an Aesop bag (you can use that linen bag to carry everything or wrap anything) plus a reusable amenity case. The usual black fabric case is replaced for this collection only by a material that feels like washable paper, which is usually made using a cultivated fibre . From a distance it looks like leather or even wool, but it is not, and since I could not find more information on it, I am going to go with what I think it is, if I am wrong please let me know in the comments below.

When it comes to its contents, there are 4 different kits, and I chose the one that included most of what I am missing as of now. The six piece “Contours of Discovery” includes the following :

  • Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser, 6.76 oz.
  • Geranium Leaf Body Scrub, 6.09 oz.
  • Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash, 16.9 oz.
  • Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm, 2.54 oz.
  • A reusable amenity case

Take a look at the rest of the Atlas of Attraction kits here.

Ferm Living and Red Cross

October 31, 2018


Rarely I have the opportunity to post about a cause, and so today, this post is very special. Ferm Living has designed a high quality blanket, the Enfold blanket, to support the Danish Red Cross in their work of helping vulnerable families get through the winter.Ferm Living’s proceeds from the sales of this exclusive blanket , are donated to the Danish Red Cross in full who are then able to provide aid and care in parts of the world where living conditions are much harsher than what we are used to.

Enfold is made out of 100% wool melange , in a blue tone , with fringes on 2 sides. I will be getting one myself and I will get back to you on how it feels. I dont need another blanket, probably you dont either, and if you already support the Red Cross or any other charity you feel is helping out then you are already doing something to help out. But regardless of if you are or not, this is a good opportunity to give, without thinking too much about how, only why. It is getting cold out there, and everybody should at least have a blanket, and this is what the message of this post is about.

The money is donated to the general funds of Red Cross. The donation allows them to act if disaster strikes but also supports their preventive and development efforts.

Ferm Living Home | AW 18

September 4, 2018


Last year I was lucky to be one of the first people (if not the first) to visit the new Home of Ferm Living, and while this year I haven’t been able to visit it yet, the press photos are so beautiful that I couldn’t not share. Like many showrooms, the Ferm Living Home changes its face every season, and like last season, it is colorful, playful yet at the same time exudes elegance while it stays on trend. Ferm Living has continued to impress me through the last few years with their direction and how the brand has gone from ordinary to extraordinary. Furniture, accessories, almost everything in their catalogue I can see in my own contemporary home and in fact you will see quite a few Ferm Living items in my own apartment. Considering how picky I am when it comes to decoration , how few things I actually own in reality and how many of those items I rotate through the season, it is a nod towards how much I appreciate Ferm Living design lately. Feel free to scroll below for some of my favorite photos from their new catalogue, sectioned in Bedroom, Living Room,Office, Bathroom, Kitchen. You can find the online catalogue here and of course you can shop the looks on their online store.

Identity : Jotun Lady new Color chart 2019

August 28, 2018


 Colors : Devine 12083 and Tildøs 1024 

This morning I attended the Jotun Lady press presentation that unveiled this years color card, one that is definitely going to inspire and influence 2019 color trends.

‘Home is the living story of who we are, told in the objects and colours we fill it with’

– Lisbeth Larsen, Global Colour Manager at Jotun

Home is an expression of identity, is one of the few places we can authentically express who we are, it is an anchor in our everyday lives. These observations are the founding ideas behind the Jotun Colour Card 2019. This year’s card – titled Identity – explores the colours that characterise and reflect modern urban lifestyles around the world.

To illustrate how different colour combinations can be employed to communicate different identities, Jotun has identified three distinct, globally resonant themes, each describing an individual mindset and way of living – the story of an individual, told in colour. However, you will find some colors are in two Identities, or even all 3. This is because the core of all Identities is the same, our home, calm, refined and raw at the same time. I will be choosing photos to demonstrate colors best suited for every Identity below, even though they might not quite strictly belong there.

CALM

Soft, light neutrals and warm, subtle contrasts.

The calm identity prizes meaning above quantity in the things they surround themselves with, revelling in the almost-Nordic simplicity of their space. Their home is a refuge of clean, easy living and a place of peace, a Zen sanctuary given character through a handful of choice artworks or objects that carry deep personal significance. Nothing is superfluous; there is no room for clutter. Everything has a place and a reason to be in it.  The image above belongs to the Calm identity. Some more examples follow below.

Color : Comfort Grey 12078

Color : Devine 12083

Color : Soothing Beige 12075 (Minerals)

Color : Varmgrå/ Soft Grey 0394

Color :  Space 10678

REFINED

Sense-stimulating greens and yellows, given depth with different textures

The refined identity is that of the modern-day curator: discerning, considered and interested in intriguing juxtapositions. Their home is dotted with a seemingly eclectic collection of art and artefacts, vintage pieces and contemporary design, all carefully positioned in order to acquire new meanings in their relationship with one another. This home is a personal gallery – a dialogue between colour and object whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Examples follow below.

Color :  Modern Beige 12076

 Refined Color :  Treasure 7628 combined with Calm Color : Comfort grey 12078

Color :  Refresh 7627

Color :  Northern Mystic 7613

RAW

Sense-stimulating greens and yellows, given depth with different textures.

Color :  Peachy 12074

While at the press presentation today I managed to shoot a few photos, the colors are not perfectly represented due to lighting conditions, but I thought you might like a peak inside Jotun Lady´s presentation for this years color card!

 

I hope you will also be inspired by this years colors, and that you will use them to transform your home in a place where you can authentically express who you are!
