Love the subtle detail of white makeup applied as a frame for the face — unusual but lovely. Model Marina Borisova photographed by Vladimir Fridkes for Harper’s Bazaar Russia, June 1998.
On Södermalm in Stockholm, in a lovely old building dating from the 1700s, is the modern four room apartment of of Katarina Ek and her youngest daughter Moa. A low-key and graphic colour scheme of white, grey and black gives a harmonious flow to the small space, enlivened throughout with warm natural wood accents and a lovely personal collection of photography, art, books, natural objects and souvenirs collected on her travels. Perfect. More about it here on Elle Interiör Sweden.

I'm smitten with the sweet chrome-plated Kastor pencil sharpener, designed by Rodrigo Torres for Alessi as part of their spring 2013 collection. It's also something that's particularly appealing to Canadians — the beaver is the national animal of Canada!
