Amulette de Cartier -- Lapis Lazuli

I feel like a broken record when I talk about wanting to add more color into my wardrobe, and then doubly so when every time I do it, it's with some combination of blue and green. I guess I'm a one trick pony! I'm so honored to be working with Cartier once again to create a series of posts dedicated to the new colored Amulette collection (see last year's posts here). The Lapis Lazuli version is a beautiful intense blue with specks of darker silvers and a subtle shimmer. Though I felt a little out of my element in so much color at once, I also felt a bit more daring than usual (like I could more easily get myself caught in some adventure). And of course, playing up the allure of the Amulette is always a fun journey in itself.

The Apartment | Copenhagen

I had to drag myself out of The Apartment very reluctantly. These pictures should hopefully show you why. The Apartment is an interior showroom set in an 18th Century apartment in Copenhagen and is always changing to highlight new pieces. I couldn't get over how beautifully the bold colors went together, and it completely inspired me to try to add more color into my own place. The founders, Tina Seidenfaden Busck and Pernille Hornhaver, have such great eyes and taste. I'm pretty sure I audibly gasped when I first stepped in. Many thanks to Ida Laerke (who I felt like I have known forever via Instagram and finally got to meet in person!) for bringing me here.

Hotel Okura

Stepping into the iconic Hotel Okura feels a bit like stepping back in time, to 1960s Tokyo that is. An absolute gem for the design-obsessed and diplomats alike, the hotel's main wing is set for demolition and reconstruction this summer (which has been met with much objection, of course). I'm so glad I had a chance on my February Tokyo trip to see the original design before construction started.
