I'm back and I come bearing gifts. Sort of. Allow me to start off the week - on a Tuesday, yes - with Cold Picnic AW 15, the newest collection of a cool brand born in 2010. Phoebe Sung and Peter Buer were best buds in Boston and founded Cold Picnic together in Brooklyn, where they still make jewelry, leather accessories, macrame home goods, and textiles. Take a look.

What better way to make an awesome comeback than to write about something I love? Make it a duo: books and interiors. More than just a showcase of beautiful and intriguing interior design and bold colour and texture statements, this is indeed a brilliant hardcover published by Gestalten, THE CHAMBER OF CURIOSITY.

The title says it all, or perhaps it should really be taken into account that we are talking about several people's houses and lives. These are not normal lives per se, these are designers and architects, the foundation of interiors if I may, which immediately results in full-blown, award-winning homes.

From Paris to Pittsburgh, THE CHAMBER OF CURIOSITY relishes on unconventional life patterns, dreams come true, pieces found in places carrying deep pasts, time machines, and a whole lot of mix & match from distinct eras. With that said, I must only pray to get my hands on this baby sooner rather than later.

The virtual world is a beautiful thing to explore and be lost in. I often spend hours and hours indulging in inspirational websites & aspirational brands. AYR is definitely one of these cases where I just have to share it with everyone: amazing lines, lovely shapes, great colour palette. What also captured my attention was their knack for the most spot-on photos. Aren't these just to die for?

Hey, guys. Just checking in with some great stuff I've been finding online and keeping away from you — not any more. Feeding a blog is hard work and sometimes gets put aside, so you can always find me on Instagram, on Facebook, and on Tumblr.

Here are a few things I'm feeling right now, I mean, FIVE THINGS I THINK ARE NICE, MOST LIKELY.

This interview on It's Nice That with Riposte's editor-in-chief, Danielle Pender.

This freaking A M A Z I N G sideboard by Moving Mountains, the so-called Confetti Credenza.

Another Feather's new jewelry line, Pearl. Lovely pieces!

The packaging is so utterly beautiful I bet these products by Susanne Kaufmann were produced to perfection, too.

The most wonderful t-shirt I've seen in a while. Found it here.

You did it again, Wes Anderson. You're surely a master when it comes to bring out the most lovely colour palettes to your films, each and every one of them oozing structure, logic, depth. The Grand Budapest Hotel is no exception, and although I watched only a few days ago, arriving rather late to the collective date that is watching one of your masterpieces on screen, it easily became one of those feature films I'll cherish forever. There's really not much more to add about this wonder.

This ought to sum it all up.
