It's been raining all day in Stockholm. Mimmi, Karl and I are spending a couple of weeks house-sitting my mother's place. This is one of my favourite spots in the world and I've posted about it before here.

Chanel Resort 2010

It must have been a fantastic experience for those invited to the Chanel Resort 2010 show. Karl Lagerfeld had chosen the small island Lido just outside of Venice for the occasion. The light is extraordinary. And the clothes. And the hair and makeup. Magical. Images

Milan apartment

A Milanese apartment set within the owner's family's converted country house. The parents decided that their family home, where lighting designer Pier Lorenzo Salvone and his siblings grew up, had become too much for them. The solution was to convert the house into three apartments: one for them, and one each for the two sons. Pier, who initially studied architecture, designed the transformation. Opening up and filling the house with light, he created a balance with the surrounding countryside. From Living Etc
