There is a difference between dreaming of a future apartment and a future home. The one is something that is vaguely realistic according to where I am in my life right now and the other is a complete dream space that seems utterly unattainable but I still can't help myself from wondering. This abode called Sagverket (aka Sawmill) definitely falls into the category of the latter. It's curently being used as a conference space but it could so easily be transformed into a dream home.

In my last year of high school I studied the American civil rights movement in depth. It's always been a fragment of history that has intrigued me. These photographs by Bruce Davidson are still relevant today. Their pertinence and emotional power lies with their depiction of everyday folk.
The period from 1961 - 1965 was the defining era of the American civil rights movement. As a participant and observer of this struggle for racial equality, Bruce Davidson chronicled the demonstrations, the protests, the aftermath of the bombings, and the social and political tumult that arose out of the conflict. "Time of Change" is a testament to the everyday lives of the people who fought against accepted social norms of segregation, poverty, and discrimination.

I'm sure I've mentioned before that in another life I'd love to be a florist. There's something soothing about working with plants. Loose Leaf is a magical new floral studio / plant store that's opened in Melbourne. It's unlike any other florists shop I've seen.
Each from varied backgrounds but connected by a passion for plants, Wona and Charlie are inspired by the therapeutic benefits of connecting with nature.

I'm enamoured by Stella Marie Baer's thoughtful artwork. At first her pieces appear simple but once you realise you've been staring at them, mesmerized, for the past 30 minutes then it becomes obvious they're not so simple. Or rather, their simplicity is equally as inriguing as other artwork. I'd definitely love to get myself a print of those crescent moons.

Today is the first day back at varsity for my second semester. It's still icy outside, it was a whopping 6 degrees celsius when I got up this morning.
This lookbook from Nice Things by Paloma S is perfect for our weather at the moment. Stylish yet simple with lots of layers to take off in the afternoons when it gets a fraction warmer. I'd love to laze around in these outfits on campus (although I'd much prefer it to be a campsite).

It's a match made in heaven; Alexandra Grecco + wedding wares . I'm far from walking down the aisle but I can't help but admire these gowns.
Looking for a gown in advance of her own wedding in 2013, she saw an opportunity to create a bridal line of her own and pair her aesthetic with high-quality fabrics and intricate hand-embroidery. Launching in July 2014, the Alexandra Grecco bridal line features ethereal gowns for the less-traditional bride.
