HD Pinterest: The Red List

001-willy-ronis-theredlist* By Willy Ronis (found on theredlist.com)

Hi!

Ok, that title was meant to be catchy. Let me introduce The Red List to you.

This is their way of introducing themselves:

The Red List organizes and concentrates the wealth of images to be found online. After all, what is a list if not a tool to manage infinity? So to manage the Internet’s visual infinity, the Red List is organized by genres – photography, cinema, fine art, fashion, and so on – with lists inside each genre to guide image researchers.

Theredlist.com

I got introduced to it thanks to Stylist Magazine France, presenting its founder Delphine de Canecaude, who enables you to create your own trend book and share it on facebook. Now THAT spoke to me immediately.
If you are interested in seeing the different steps of her career so far, I highly you recommend checking out the article here (french version).

So you understood it, this website consists in creating a huge artisitic database. Over there you will be able to find beautiful content: photography, videos, furniture design among many others.

And what I like about it is that not only, the different sources have been carefully selected but you DO know the different sources. As I guess many of you are, I am quite the Pinterest fan, but I think that it’s pity how many sources of information you lose through pinning and quoting. On the Red List that does not happen. You will be able to get to know the artists and their work in a fullier way.

THE RED LIST IS SELECTIVE.
It offers a selection of articles, which don’t pretend to be encyclopaedic, written by passionate experts [click] – architects, designers, specialist journalists and academics – who have long travelled the world of images and who aren’t afraid to make choices. The Red List will not be pressured into featuring any artists.

Hope you enjoyed! Let me know your thoughts on this.

Cheers,

Art Gallery: Hotel Room by Vanya Milicevic

Hi,

You know sometimes, I hang out on Pinterest and stumble upon such nice boards, that I think they could be an art gallery.

The one I want to introduce you to today, was created by Vanya Milicevic (and you can explore her whole account – it is pretty perfect)

I found this board so interesting. She called it Hotel Room and gathered, well, hotel/bedroom pictures. What I thought was very interesting about the collection is that you could see the different atmospheres that one can feel while in a hotel room. I gathered my three favorite ones which are what I call, the Smart Moments (staying in your room to get ready for a meeting, read, study, work), the Cosy Moments (hanging out with your friends, enjoy a relaxing bath, laying down, wearing your most comfortable pj’s and jump onto a fresh made bed) and finally the more Sexy Moments (no explanation needed).

Week Wrap Up

Hello everyone,

I thought I would share some more personal things on the blog and sharing with you the highlight of my week. I would love for you to share them as well in the comments this way we can all learn from eachother and discover new things all around the world.

As I’m appartment hunting in Paris, I have plenty of time to wander around the city and explore coffeshops, stores, exhibs, among many others.

1) A very exciting discovery was Artazart. If you are not familiar, Artazart is an amazing design bookstore. They have a huge selection of any type of design book you would be looking for, some are more graphic, some more intellectual. Some are amazing coffee table books, others are great tools to start creating (wether it is a company, a interior space, an art collection, a diy, you name it!)

And if these lines weren’t covincing enough I would suggest you to check out the tripadvisor reviews this store has. And trust me, these reviews are well deserved.

Here are some book that I stumbled upon and loved (some are only in French sorry):

And THIS, how cool is it? First notebook made out of stone. What?!! ❤

2) Exhib : L’Amérique des Kennedy – “Kennedy’s America”

This was a lovely exhib, the gallery is absolutely gorgeous and I got to learn many new things especially about Robert Kennedy and the whole family.

3) White Nail Polish + White Loafers

Let me know if this is something you would like to see more often! And please, let me know what are YOUR highlights of the week. 🙂

Many many many of you may know this by now. I got some Stan Smith sneakers for my birthday back in October and I have been absolutely loving them. They are super comfortable, go with everything and they always give a casual touch yet sophisticated thanks to the Midas touch (got it? Gold 😉 – so P&F).

Interview w/ Fabulous JazziRose

FIRSTSECOND* By JazziRose

Dear readers,

For this new year I have many new post ideas that will feature some fellow, bloggers, instagrammers and other talented souls.

Today, I wanted to introduce you to the very artistic Jasmin Rosenberg that I discovered on Instagram – JAZZIROSE.

Please go check out her blog – I think she has one of the best feeds ever. If you are into the very minimal and white theme, you will love her account & as everyone knows already I am all about that.

Without further do, let me share you my favorite posts from her (I’ll try my best not to put them all here) and scroll down for the complete interview.

——

Tell us a bit about yourself:

– My name is Jasmin and I’m 20 years old. I was born and raised in the southern part of Denmark in a city called Svendborg, where I currently still live with my parents and little brother.

Something you love about the city you live in:

– What I love most about my hometown is probably that it is located very close to the coast. From my home there is about 5-10 minutes to the nearest harbor and beach. It kinda gives me sense of freedom rather than being “stranded” in the center of the country. Also, I think that the size of the city is spot on. Not too big and overwhelming as some big capitals might seem, nor so small that you’ll get bored here.

Currently studying/working? Something you love about it:

– I graduated summer 2013 from what you internationally would call “High School”

I had no idea what I wanted to study next, so I took a year break from everything and basically spend all my time with family and friends.

This summer I, very spontaneously, started at university on a rather new education called “Intercultural pedagogy”.

But it just wasn’t the right choice for me. I felt sad whenever I went to school, didn’t feel like I belonged there and the subjects didn’t really interest me either. So I dropped out of uni in December, which was actually quite hard for me, because I somewhat felt like I gave up.

But now, I have applied to a new school and a new education, “Marketing management” which starts in February.

I have a much better feeling about this, but I won’t know until later on in January whether my application has been accepted or not. (crossing fingers)

What are your hobbies?

– One of my biggest hobbies has to be photography. I take pictures with my iPhone 4s or my Nikon d3200.

I absolutely love the whole “set up” of a picture and I have fun editing the images afterwards.

I love to share my photos on Instagram where I feel that I get a lot of feedback aswell as inspiration back from the people I follow.

I also enjoy more ordinary things, like cooking and workouts at the gym 🙂

How would you discribe your personal fashion style? Do you find inspiration in some celebreties? 

In 4 words: minimalistic, simple, casual and most importantly, comfortable.

I live in oversized, chunky jumpers, cardigans and black leggings. My wardrobe consists mostly of black, white, grey and nude items, because that’s just what I feel most comfortable in. I often add red lipstick to an outfit, so I don’t look completely washed out.

I used to always wear whatever everyone else wore, but now I focus on just feeling comfortable in what I’m wearing.

I respect people with personal style, who can manage to stand out in the crowd (without having to wear bright yellow clothes ofc.)

I love to browse through Pinterest to find inspiration and I’m a huge fan of Mary-kate and Ashley Olsen’s style. They are always on point!

You instagram feed is absolutely gorgeous – where do you find your inspiration? 

– Thank you so much! I follow a lot of similar accounts on Instagram and get inspired by them everyday.

Also, I’m scrolling though the Pinterest app daily, which to me is a huge inspirational source that I think everyone should join!

I can also easily find inspiration on TV, commercials, in a magazine or just at the mall. Everywhere basically! 

Tips and Tricks for an awesome looking Instagram: 

– The best advice I can give is to try and find a “theme” for your feed. It could be food, fashion, fitness, your lifestyle, interior design, the way you edit your pictures, a certain color, whatever you like. Try to find a common thread that kinda connects all your pictures and in that way gives your feed a certain style. I also recommend that you take pictures in natural daylight and that you don’t add too many filters and effects.

Just adjusting the brightness and contrast of the image can do so much! (that’s at least what I prefer to do)

Something amazing that has happened thanks to your account?

– I’ve had the pleasure to receive a few products from different brands, which to me is so amazing and I’m so thankful for that!

I’ve also done a giveaway not too long ago with an amazing brand called Hoff by Hoff.

This year, I’m collaborating with a new women’s wear fashion label called Míela, and I will also be blogging for them. 

What are you most looking forward this year? 

– Hopefully, I’m looking forward to starting on my new education and I’m excited to see how that goes.

Other than that, I don’t have anything in particular that I’m looking forward to. But who knows, your never know what the future might bring.

To conclude, share with us a couple of your current favorite pictures/quotes/etc: 

Quotes: “Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity, or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere.”
“Ask yourself if what your are doing today, is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
 
Here are some fashion and interior pictures that I find very inspirational. 
They are all from Pinterest, so if you like this “simple, minimalistic, less is more” kinda style you should follow me there! (www.pinterest.com/iamjazzirose)

PARIS DESIGN WEEK 2014

Paris-Design-Week-2014

As some of you may know already, I am coming back to Paris where I grew up, in order to continue my studies in International Business.

This city may have some down sides, but one cannot deny that everything happens in Paris (or almost!). So from now on, many reviews and posts will be about French brands, restaurants, exhibitions, hiddens places, among many others.

Last weekend, I was at the Paris Design Week which happens once a year and aims to bring a broader audience to different designers, their work, studios, workshops, but also to secret bars and restaurants.

Unfortunetely I was outside of the country and only came back the last day of the Design Week. I went to the Cité de la Mode et du Design (City of Fashion and Design) and saw a very nice exhibition full of very talented creators.

All pieces were gorgeous and very interesting but I have to confess I had two main crushes:

TOUTALENVERS by Gregory Saraceni – Loved how original this was. Basically his whole collection is about upside down cups, mugs, plates, that you can drink/eat in.  I was so puzzled when I first looked at his work! This is pure genius!

ECHOES by Charlotte Juil­lard – Let’s not even talk about the quality of these speakers that looked more than perfect. Now should we say something about this sleek design? I don’t even think so. White ceramic and leather details?. Perfection.

Shout out to these wonderful artists and all the others that were presenting their work there and who have done an amazing job.

Also, I loved how the whole event was organized. You could whether follow a map and detailed circuits with all the details you needed, or just go your way.

In any case some of these spots were temporarily open for the Design week but others are just nice addresses to keep in mind to wander around!

I really hope you enjoyed this kind of more “in the field” post.

I have more of these planned with more pictures that I personally took.

Let me know what you would like to see next!
