statement sweater: animals and more

With fall in full swing it’s time to expand your sweater collection. And what better place to start than with a statement sweater. I’ll feature a few different styles { three to be exact } in the statement sweater department. The first being intarsia, which might conjure up cozy images of hot-apple-cider-being-sipped-fireside-in-a-cabin. Well, these throwback knit tops with the graphics woven into the sweater—in the past usually snowflakes or some type of kitschy wildlife—are bank in a big way!

1. Markus Lupfer – Smacker lips sweater
2. Jil Sander – Whale intarsia camel and wool-blend sweater
3. C Wonder – Bunny Hop intarsia sweater
4. J. Crew – French Hen sweater
5. Joie – Eloise intarsia sweater

TGIF! xx

in your space: decorated by cristina ramos

The style is very eclectic and is influenced by very different cultural sources. The furniture is almost all vintage, from the 40s and 70s, and have remained original structural elements.

A Maximum warmth. Achieved with lighting that creates intimate and cozy. There’s only overhead light in the dining room in the rest of the house has been used indirectly with floor lamps and table.

Playing with contrasts. In some rooms intentionally breaks the calm atmosphere
provided by the soft colors that add drama with elements such as the wallpaper in the dining room dark tones. Nuevo-Estilo.es

There is just some much I love about Cristina Ramos‘ style and eye for design. The 70s influence, art deco, neo-classicism, bohemian style, and industrial style are all combined. My favorite parts include, but are not limited to…

– the tiled, pattered floors
– mix & match style
– neon
– the retro vibe
– bold colours

And the list goes on!!
