Yesterday we visited The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts to look at the final exhibitions of the students’ work. The architecture projects were awesome, but I absolutely loved the fashion exhibitions. European fashion is just so innovative and fun, and they’re not afraid to take risks. I love the fact that they’re both runway and everyday wear, and play with color and texture that you can still wear everyday. enjoy!
the many lights of Alvar Aalto
This past week I got the opportunity to visit Finland on a study tour for my study abroad program. Of course, visiting Finland comes with many Alvar Aalto buildings. This past week has really made me appreciate his aesthetic and way of thinking about design, and I can’t lie, I kinda love his lighting. enjoy!
I’ve realized I have a weird obsession with doors… many people don’t realize how important they are, but as an interior architect I know that the transition from the exterior to the interior can be very special if enough attention is paid.
Here’s a collection of beautiful doors I’ve seen on the trip so far, from sleek and modern to old and hand crafted, they all have character and add so much to their building.
Today in København we finally visited our studio site, a rather bright and gaudy building that houses their main movie theatre. While the rest of the building was a little bit crazy, this cafe is a cool and much more modern addition. Danish architecture is very clean and simple, and this is the perfect example that showcases their love of modern yet quirky design. I love the color palette and the fun chairs, and even the art on the wall (famous but kind of random actors from the US) is funky and chic. More Danish interiors to come!
Marc Koehler Architects designed this home in Amsterdam by completely renovating an urban building into a residential space. It is designed so that there are “villages” within, or smaller spaces dividing up the interior. From it’s clean, minimal lines to the muted yet playful color palette, this is a beautiful and innovative space that feels both modern yet cozy at the same time.
so much color and pattern in this quirky Madrid penthouse. how could your day not turn instantly better the moment you step foot inside?

Just used this funky pendant in my latest studio project, so I thought I’d share it with the rest of you! Loving this new designer discovery..
Traverso Table by Francesco Faccin
This sleek table relies on the structure of the beam as the spine and central point of the table. Proves that structure can be both functional and beautiful!
Beautiful photos from Zhang Kechun’s collection The Yellow River
