Room impression

Like I wrote earlier I moved out of my mother's house to live closer to my school.
I really had to get used to living alone, doing groceries, cleaning and doing laundry, but it all goes pretty good now. School is starting tomorrow and I finally furnished and decorated my new room. It's very different then my room in my mother's house. This new room is smaller, so I wanted to keep the main colors light and decorate the furniture with pastel colors.
-Love, R

Beautiful photo's

Hi guys,

It's been a while since I've posted something but I've been very busy. I had to work a lot lately and I moved closer to Amsterdam because it's easier for me to go to school everyday. Speaking of school, I can't wait to start fashion school in a few weeks.

Lots of love

P.S. I included some photo's I like.

The birth of a Chanel 2.55

The Chanel 2.55 is named after the actual launch date; February 1955. All the features on the bag were inspired by Coco Chanel's past, life and needs.

The brown color lining's represents the color from the convent, at the
orphanage where she grew up.

Rumoured is that Coco Chanel hid here love letters in the inside compartment
at the inside front flap of the bag.

Coco used the back outside flap for the storage of money

Coco thought that the modern women needed to have their hands free while attending social functions and came up with the chain shoulder strap. The inspiration for the strap chains on the bag came from the caretakers at the convert where she grew up. The caretakers hold the keys at their waist dangling from the same type of chains as the 2.55 shoulder strap chains.

The original 2.55 came with a front lock called ''the Mademoiselle Lock'', because Coco never got married. Since 1980 the bag was made with a lock in the shape of the double CC logo that is called ''the Classic Flaps''.

The quilted diamond or herringbone pattern is created by using a running stich that gives the bag shape and volume. The pattern is said to be inspired by several sources; the stained-glass windows of the abbey at Aubazine, by jockeys’ riding coats, as well as by the cushions in Coco's Paris apartment.

On one 2.55 bag 6 to 15 people work up to 18 hours (depending on the material) to make the bag.

Moschino wonderland

Goose bumps, that's what I got when I saw this. I'm talking about Maison Moschino. The hotel is located in the old neoclassical railway station on Viale Monte Grappa that opened in 1840 for the Milan-Monza route. The Hotel is divided into four floors and comprises 54 rooms and 15 suites, each with a different design and a different name. The fa├žade of the building stayed in the original condition, but the interior is designed by Moschino’s
creative team and Creative Director Rossella Jardini.

''The hotel interior reflects Moschino’s distinctive style where the ordinary
world is painted with a brush of surrealism

This is probably the best way to describe the interior and I totally agree with it.
By only seeing photos I can say that fashion and architecture perfectly came together. Although all rooms are different they still suit the building wonderfully. Seeing the photos really makes me want to stay there one time, but knowing me I'll probably want to live there after I visited it.

Breakfast, can You belive how cute this looks

If you're interested and want to know more about the hotel and the rooms, I really recommend visiting the website of Masion Moschino. They explain the different rooms and the photos in the gallery give a good impression of the hotel

Julia's apartment

It's been a while but my obsession with closets and different interiors is still there.
I love collecting photo's from different people with different taste and look on their interior.
And sometimes I get so inspired and that brings me with a new idea for my own room.
Mostly I love the way people use personal things to decorate their house.
A while ago I read an article in Glamour about Julia Restoin Roitfeld with photo's of her apartment in New York. I loved the way she uses fashion items as decoration in her apartment.
That's it for now, wish you all a happy easter and I'll be back soon with a new article.
