Sézane ~ Delicate Spring Knitwear

    March 22, 2021
    Sézane Cream Knit Blouse, French Fashion

    With spring chirping at our windowsills, I’ve found myself in the mood for lighter tones and airy knitwear — pieces that signify all the romantic and laidback vibes that accompany a shift to warmer weather.

    This gorgeous knit blouse by Sézane is one of those pieces — with delicate detailing that’s enough to make your heart flutter. Knitted from a buttery soft blend of OEKO-TEX certified viscose derived from wool pulp, the Ronnie jumper comes from Sézane’s fully traceable manufacturing process.

    In true Parisian style, the scalloped square neckline is feminine and flirty — beautifully highlighting the décolletage while the slightly ballooned sleeves add volume that contrasts the fitted bodice. Here, I’m showing the cream Ronnie blouse styled with classic black high-waisted trousers, but the top also looks fabulous with a pair of vintage denim — a perfect combination for a relaxed spring feeling.

    Available in Cream, Black, and Green

    URBANARA ~ Dreamy Grey-Beige Linen Curtains

    March 17, 2021
    Airy Living Room, Beige Linen Curtains, Grey Sofa

    Swathing your windows in dreamy linen is the perfect way to transform any room into an oasis of calm. Just this week, I finally hung beautiful natural linen curtains by URBANARA in our living room and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the outcome.

    Finding the right curtains can be a tricky endeavor, and I’ve spent months going back-and-fourth on what exactly we needed to create a soothing and airy ambiance without getting too whimsical. Finally after weeks of searching, I discovered URBANARA’s beautiful Zelva Curtains in natural linen. The tone of the material is a stunning mixture between beige and gray, gently shifting throughout the day as the light changes.

    These curtains are sold in a set of two panels, and are available in two lengths, 240cm and 320cm. The length of most ‘ready-made’ curtains typically maxes-out at 300cm, which has made it next to impossible to find something long enough to accommodate the height of our tall ceilings. So if you’ve also been on the hunt for extra-long curtains and aren’t ready to shell-out a hefty amount of euros on something that’s made-to-order, be sure to explore all of URBANARA’s many styles, they have a lovely selection online.

    The Zelva Curtains are made in Lithuania from 100% natural linen. The weave is soft yet weighty, and the light transmits beautifully through the material. I’ve opted to hang these using metal rings since I prefer the wave-optic you get when installed this way. But it’s also possible to hang these curtains by simply slipping the rod through the pocket sewn on the top.

    Another small but impactful update I made was to swap-out the white curtain rods for a black finish, creating one single line. I wanted to use the architectural detail of the metal rod to draw connections to other elements in the space, such as the black cord from which our Nurra pendent is suspended. Using these types of more functional details to tie together various objects and pieces in a room can help create a beautiful and refined sense of congruency, and will most certainly add an edge of sophistication. I still have it on my to-do-list to hand-sew each ring to the top of the curtain header, to create a more customized look. But that’s a project for a different week! For now, I’m going to relax and enjoy the beautiful softened light and calming atmosphere.

    Filippa K ~ The Story of Swedish Wool

    March 16, 2021
    Filippa K, Swedish Wool, Max Sweater

    For three years, Sweden-based fashion label Filippa K has been on a mission to develop a better way of sourcing wool – one that’s fully-traceable, locally based, and more conscious. As a result, they’ve created an entirely new supply chain with true Scandinavian origins.

    To make their Swedish Wool, Filippa K works with three small farms in rural Sweden. The sheep that live on these farms are regularly sheered throughout the seasons for their comfort, so Filippa K had the vision to develop a use for this wool that was otherwise going to waste. The wool from these three farms is collected and then prepared for spinning at a wash house on the Swedish island of Gotland.

    From there, the cleaned wool is transported to Italy where it’s spun into yarn. When it’s ready, the yarn journeys to Romania where it’s been carefully knitted into a Max Sweater. Typically, the average wool sweater travels over 20,000 km throughout its production process, since most wool is sourced from far away places like Australia or South Africa. So by sourcing wool locally from Sweden, Filippa K has been able to reduce their supply chain length and carbon impact by 75%.

    ~

    This season’s Swedish Wool has been knitted to take the shape of The Max Sweater — a perfectly oversized, unisex, and natural garment that’s made in limited quantities from 100% Swedish Wool. If you’re interested to learn more about Filippa K’s award-winning Swedish Wool supply chain, or wish to have your own classic Max Sweater to take you from season to season, check out the links below. Only 300 Max Sweaters have been produced (this being one of them) so supplies are quite limited. I’m wearing size XS, so you can see that the fit of the sweater is wonderfully oversized.

    Decadent ~ The Minna Everyday Tote

    March 12, 2021
    Decadent Copenhagen Minna Brown Leather Tote Bag | Fashion | RG Daily Blog

    Today I’m here to introduce you to my favorite design from Decadent’s latest collection, the Minna Tote in beautiful Vegetal Mocha leather — a perfectly-size mini-tote that’s utterly seasonless and an absolute dream to style.

    Minna is a part of Decadent’s latest family of tote-bags, and is the smallest style in the collection. I’ve been sporting this gorgeous handbag around with every chance I get, especially since she’s easy to style with my entire wardrobe. The subtle but stunning details (such as the tone-on-tone gold and silver hardware, and delicate contrast stitching) are what make this bag a real eye-catcher.

    I absolutely adore it’s silhouette and classic top-handle design, and the size couldn’t be better either — not the least bit bulky, but large enough to carry all my every-day essentials and work notebooks with room to spare. Minna can also be carried as a shoulder-bag and comes with a detachable leather strap which clips into the interior. And of course, the bag is hand-made from Decadent’s finest vegetable-tanned leather.

    For over 15 years, the Copenhagen-based brand has worked with a single artisan manufacturer in Turkey who carefully hand-crafts each Decadent item. With a design approach that mirrors Scandinavian values of timeless simplicity and functional sensibility, Decadent bags are elegant and ageless, but practical for the everyday and well-wearing for the years ahead. If you’re curious to learn more about the story of Decadent, head over to this post where I’ve shared an interview with Karina Mundt Holst, Decadent’s founder and creative director.

    SOFACOMPANY ~ Dreamy Custom Upholstered Designs

    February 24, 2021
    SOFACOMPANY, Maya Cream Boucle, Beige Interior Aesthetic

    Based out of Denmark, SOFACOMPANY‘s online shop is a go-to destination to discover stunning lounge furniture that can be custom-upholstered in their gorgeous range of textiles.

    SOFACOMPANY has a beautiful selection and (as their name suggests) they specialize specifically in sofas and lounge pieces. All of their designs carry a contemporary edge that’s driven by the brand’s Scandinavian roots, and each upholstered item can be made-to-order in the fabric of your choosing from their in-house textiles.

    Two beautiful accent pieces from SOFACOMPANY moved into our home recently, both upholstered in a creamy bouclé fabric of my dreams. I love the voluminous feeling and generous proportions of the Babette Lounge, designed by Katrine Bjørn. It looks stunning in just about every corner of our home, and its seat is relatively wide and open, inviting you to sit down and relax for a bit. The chair is fixed onto a swivel base, allowing you to gently sway as you sit and making it ideal to use in-between spaces. Right now we have it positioned between our dining area and lounge setting, so the swivel factor connects the two individual spaces fabulously.

    The No. 9 Ottoman is a favorite as well, and it works perfectly in front of our sofa — so perfectly in fact, I have my feet propped up on it as I’m writing this post. I’ve always found these types of puffs to be incredibly practical since you can use them just about anywhere — in front of a lounge, at the foot of the bed, next to the wardrobe, as a seat for a vanity, for a child’s room, the options are endless! SOFACOMPANY carries the same design in a range of sizes as well, so it’s easy to find the right-sized puff for just about any space.

    Choosing The Perfect Upholstery Fabric

    Selecting the perfect fabric for lounge furniture can be quite a dilemma, and it’s important to choose a textile that suits your taste just as much as your lifestyle. When making fabric selections for accent pieces, such as our Babette Lounge and No. 9 Ottoman, I often gravitate towards textiles with character (like SOFACOMPANY’s Maya Cream). Even in neutral tones, an accent piece upholstered in a wonderfully tactile bouclé is sure to be eye-catching, and it will add a beautiful level of depth to the space.

    When selecting fabrics for larger pieces such as sofas and sectionals, I tend to lean towards subtle weave options in neutral tones. These types of lounge pieces are often the largest element of furniture in a space, and are also usually a sizable investment too. Because of this, I find it important to select a fabric that’s versatile and ageless. While I certainly appreciate the visual impact a bold statement color can bring to a room, I always recommend choosing a mid-range neutral color for sofa upholstery (like SOFACOMPANY’s Vega Sand Dune). This will give you a tremendous amount of flexibility throughout the years, allowing your sofa to evolve with your home as your style preferences, color pallets, and design aesthetics shift over time.

    Beyond color and style, it’s also important to review the durability of the fabric you select. The longevity of upholstery textiles are globally rated based on three key aspects — abrasion resistance, color fastness, and pilling. A fabric’s abrasion resistance rating (also called Martindale or rub-count) measures the durability of its resistance to showing signs of wear. Color fastness measures the fabrics resistance to fading from light exposure or cleaning, and the pilling rating measures the fiber’s tendency of shedding or balling.

    Complimentary Fabric Samples From SOFACOMPANY

    SOFACOMPANY’s design team understands that shopping for upholstered furniture online can be a tricky endeavor. That’s why they offer 5 complimentary fabric samples of your choosing, which they will send to you for free. Simply visit their website to make your selection, and in a few days your fabric samples will arrive in your mailbox! Currently, SOFACOMPANY ships to eight unique countries within Northern Europe and Scandinavia. You can visit their website to check availability in your country.

    When shopping online, colors and textures can often appear differently than in reality, so having a chance to review each fabric in person can make all the difference and help you select your dream sofa or lounge with true confidence and peace-of-mind. It’s helpful to review each textile you’re considering in the context of your own home, and at different times of the day to see how the color will react as the light changes. It’s also wonderfully convenient to compare the fabrics with other colors and elements in your home, testing them with both warm and cool tones, so that you can be sure it pairs perfectly and no color-conflicts occur.

    As mentioned above, be sure to review the durability factor of the fabric you select based on your intended use. To ensure that your upholstered furniture will wear well for many years, try to select fabrics with abrasion resistance (Martindale) ratings over 30,000. For color fastness and pilling, fabrics with ratings over 3 usually endure nicely for at-home use. All of SOFACOMPANY’s fabrics are rated on these key factors, which you can review online and on the back of each fabric sample.

    Maison Christian Dior ~ Fragrance Escape

    January 22, 2021
    Maison Christian Dior, Ambre Nuit

    Escapism by fragrance can be one of life’s most simple pleasures, and scents by Maison Christian Dior can certainly elevate a fragrant journey in the most luxurious of ways.

    Through Ambre Nuit, Maison Christian Dior explores the olfactory balance between feminine and masculine. Based on a woody and floral blend that’s rich in character, the warm and powdery scent of amber is beautifully counterbalanced by velvety Turkish rose — creating a soothing but intense fragrance that can be worn and relished by women and men alike.

    While Ambre Nuit happens to be one of my favorite perfumes from the collection, Dior has an entire fragrant world to explore with something to offer for every preference. If you’re interested in discovering a Maison Christian Dior fragrance yourself, Dior allows you to test the perfume first before you decide if it’s right for you. And, if you’re seeking to treat yourself to something extra special or searching for a thoughtful gift, any of Dior’s fragrant soaps are a wonderful option and produce the most decadent, silky lather.

    January Updates & Soft Tones

    January 18, 2021
    Beige/Neutral Inspo, January Aesthetic

    Happy New Year! Although I’m a few weeks behind, I couldn’t start off my first blog post for 2021 without a congratulations. If you’re reading this, that means you made it through 2020, and that in-and-of-itself is reason enough to feel elated.

    At the end of 2020, Sven and I took some time off to re-charge our batteries. With both of us in home office, we’ve developed a bad habit of falling into the work grind at all hours of the day. So, having some time to fully separate from our work and relax (even though we were still at home) felt so helpful and necessary.

    This start into January has been unusually sedate too, but I’ve decided to take advantage of the circumstances by re-structuring my focus for the coming months. I’ll be scaling back a bit on my large design-projects for the time being because I’m on a mission to earn my German naturalization this year and need to dedicate a lot of time to studying. I just recently learned that I’ll be eligible to apply for my German citizenship in a few months, so I’m very motivated to work hard to pass the exams for both language and naturalization. Hopefully, I’ll be able to put in my application by summer.

    In between studying, I’ll keep sharing articles and stories here on RG Daily. I also plan to dabble a bit more in sculpture too — a new hobby of mine that I picked up during our winter pause and instantly fell in love with. There’s something so soothing and cathartic about working with clay, and I’m excited to see where this new love takes me. Below are a few photos that I’ve snapped on my iPhone since January began. We’ve not had too many bright days here in Berlin, so the feeling at home has been relaxed and muted. The defused daylight during these long winters always brings a special feeling of calm, but does an equally good job putting me in the mood for the next season — let’s hope its a sunny one.

    Xx, Rebecca

    Golden Essentials by Monarc Jewellery

    December 21, 2020
    Monarc Jewellery Editorial

    Jewellery will forever be my favorite way to finish an outfit, and lately these beautiful earrings by Monarc Jewellery have been the first pieces I reach for when getting ready — whether I’m in the mood for something bold and feminine, or seeking something light and understated.

    Based out of London, Monarc centers on luxury jewellery that is artful and timeless. The brand’s founder, Ella Drake, collaborates with a range of international designers, co-creating inspiring collections that are equally unique as they are beautiful. Each and every Monarc piece is exquisitely crafted by a master goldsmith, using responsibly sourced precious metals such as recycled gold and silver, and above-ground gemstones. The brand’s fine and demi-fine pieces are designed for daily wear, and made to last longer than a lifetime.

    The Remie Huggies shown below are some of my favorite earrings for everyday wear and are part of Monarc’s most recent collection, UNUM. The elongated hoops are designed so that different charms can be added, making them incredibly versatile while still being simple and light enough to wear around-the-clock. When I’m in the mood for something a bit more opulent, the Hermione Hoops from Monarc’s Lolita Mas collection have become my go-to earrings. The classic silhouette is beautifully embellished by a rounded doughnut charm, giving these earrings a feeling that’s sculptural and glamourous. Like the finer Remie hoops, the Hermione hoops can also be worn bare without the doughnut charm. I’ve linked both of these below to discover.

    Kalklitir ~ Creating Simple Paintings With Kalk

    December 18, 2020
    Kalklitir Chalk Paint

    If you’re looking for a way to bring some warmth into your interior and would also enjoy a little diy project, let me suggest creating a simple painting using lime-based pigments by Kalklitir.

    Now that we’ve lived in our flat for almost a year, I decided it was time to finally hang some art on the walls. But of course, I wanted to keep things really simple and warm, so I opted to create my own paintings using natural lime-based paint by Kalklitir. I’ve been seeing lots of interior applications using this type of kalk paint, and I love the beautiful depth and earthiness it adds to the room. But instead of cladding our walls in kalk, I opted to use this medium on canvas.

    While I’ve always enjoyed painting, I’ll be the first to admit that I am no Picasso or fine artist. I simply enjoy the creative process (and hopefully the outcome) — creating a piece of artwork with Kalklitir is a very easy and relaxing project. I opted to make this painting using a neutral color called ‘Celadon Primo‘, but Kalklitir has a really wonderful assortment of pigments in their color range for you to explore.

    Keep scrolling to see the painting process…

    Color Shown Here: Celadon Primo


    Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint
    The Process Of Painting

    For this particular painting, I wanted to create something very subtle with a small amount of structure for irregularity and depth. Before working with the Kalklitir paint, I had already added my structural foundation to the canvas using a combination of molding paste and acrylic paint. This was done a few days before, so that there was plenty of time for it to dry.

    The next step was to mix the kalk paint, which comes in powder form and is easy enough to do using a hand-whisk. Since I didn’t use the full contents of the package, I simply weighed the powder and then added the appropriate amount of tap water based on the recipe provided on the label. For larger interior projects, I could imagine that it would be more convenient to mix the paint using an electric mixer since the recommended stir-time is ten minutes.

    Once all was mixed, it was on to painting and this is super cathartic. I applied a total a three layers to the canvas while covering the edges as well, allowing the paint to dry between each layer. For this painting, I used the color “Celadon Primo” and applied the paint in horizontal layers that worked with the base structure on the canvas.

    As Kalklitir says on their tips page, trusting the process is key. The color will dry many shades lighter in the end, and it’s impossible to make any judgements on the outcome until the paint is fully dry. But with this being the case, using Kalklitir on an art project turns the experience into a little journey.


    Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint Kalklitir Chalk Paint
    The Finished Results

    As mentioned above, working with lime-based pigments is all about trusting the process. This being my first time using Kalklitir paint, I was a bit unsure of how it would turn out in the end. But I think that the result is really nice, with a natural characteristic and matte appearance that makes for a lovely and understated piece of artwork. Being a natural material, you’ll find interesting irregularities in each brushstroke, and the paint’s mineral properties allow you to create a stunning range of depth without needing to be a skilled painter.

    After the painting had fully dried and hardened, I used a razor to trim away the bits of built-up paint that had accumulated around the back exterior edges of the canvas. I then sanded these areas down so that I could be sure no pigment would transfer to the wall after it was hung. I have plans to create a few more kalk paintings in the weeks to come, so I’ll share the finished outcome of those as well later on.

    Soft Holiday Vibes At Home

    December 16, 2020
    Simple Scandinavian Holiday Decor

    More than the years before, I’ve really enjoyed the process of decorating our home for the holiday season by adding simple festive touches around the flat.

    Now that we’re halfway through December, the Christmas countdown is very much on and we’re also very much in lockdown here in Berlin. It feels nice to have some holiday cheer around us, especially this year with the Christmas markets being closed and usual festive outings put on hold. But as always, we’ve found ways to make the most of these times while finding happiness in the simplicity of being cozy at home. This is the first year that Sven and I have opted for a proper Christmas tree, and I think it’s a tradition we’ll be keeping for the years ahead. I didn’t quite go “all out” with the decorations, but with lots of candles all around, arrangements of evergreen, and a little wreath fashioned out of leftover arrangements, I can say that it feels pretty festive here.

    Beyond a few ornaments for the tree and some extra candles, I didn’t buy any new Christmas decorations this year. I really prefer to use the vases and candle holders we already own since I’m not a big fan of holiday themed decor that can only be used for one season. In the end, I love the subtle and soft holiday feeling you can achieve by not being too deliberate with festive-wear. For the first Advent, Sven’s mom sent us a little care package that included a beautiful candle holder with interlocking circles. I’ve been searching high and low, but I can’t find a similar style online to link. If I find one, I’ll add it later.

    I’d really like to advocate for the idea of buying less holiday decorations (not only for Christmas, but for every holiday) and instead investing in timeless pieces that can be used all year round with different floral elements to set the tone. It’s easy to create a beautiful holiday-themed centerpiece or arrangement using your favorite platter or vase, and it gives you a chance to see the pieces you already own and love in a whole new light.

    I hope you all are staying well and enjoy a really wonderful holiday time.

    Xx Rebecca

    URBANARA ~ Home Textiles To Keep You Cozy All Winter

    December 11, 2020
    URBANARA Beige Home Textiles

    With so many of us spending extra time at home this winter and throughout the holiday season, finding ways to make your surroundings warm and inviting can add a tremendous amount of much needed comfort.

    I’m always more comfortable and relaxed when our home feels truly snuggly, and I find that layering a few nice textile elements on the sofa and bed can make all the difference. I’ve teamed up with URBANARA to share a few of my favorite pieces that can help create a warming home environment. All of the URBANARA items that I’ve curated below — from wonderfully soft blankets and bedding to beautiful tableware — would make excellent gifts, especially right now when we could all use a little added comfort in our lives.

    We have a few of these items in our own home, and I really love each and every one of them for their outstanding quality, warmth, and softness that you just want to have wrapped around you all the time.

    ASKET ~ Meaningful Gifts to Wear & Share

    December 8, 2020
    ASKET Timeless Winter Fashion

    In the midst of the holidays, it’s easy to get caught up in all the buzzing commotion that prompts us to focus on giving and getting more. But instead of more, I’m here to focus on meaning with a small selection of gift ideas from ASKET — wonderfully cozy and beautifully timeless wool pieces that can be worn, shared, and loved for many years ahead.

    With wool being one of nature’s greatest gifts to us, it only makes sense to gift someone dear to you an incredibly soft wool scarf or sweater. The Stockholm-based clothing brand’s thoughtful collection of Cashmere and Merino garments are ideal for anyone you might be shopping for this year, and are made to last a lifetime with a classic aesthetic that can be worn by anyone. As a couple, you can even go in together on one or two of ASKET’s cozy wardrobe essential to enjoy sharing during this cold winter, and the winters to come. Sven and I have both been loving the beige ASKET scarf so much, we’ve even had to “rock-scissors-paper” for it a few times!

    Every decision ASKET makes is based on the long-term — a long-term approach to style when it comes to both design and quality, but more importantly, the long-term future of our planet. Their aim is to be a positive force of change within the fashion industry — an industry rife with over consumption fed by exploitive production practices that are damaging to both people and our planet. Their pursuit is to change this reality by re-instilling the value of clothing by encouraging a mentality centered on owning fewer but better pieces — pieces that are designed to be utterly timeless, and produced in a responsible way with enduring quality.

    Instead of phasing in new products throughout every season, ASKET has one Permanent Collection which they’ve slowly and carefully developed since launching in 2015. Built on a “back-to-basics” approach, each garment in the ASKET Collection is thoughtfully refined to serve as a long-term wardrobe essential. They only introduce 3-4 garments a year which gives their team the ability and time to meticulously fine-tune each style while offering an expanded size range for better fitting clothing that feels custom-made.

    With the exception of a few winter staples, their garments are totally seasonless and are designed to be worn year-round by practically anyone. While the brand technically focuses on menswear, I find many of their essentials to be perfectly genderless, and wonderfully flexible thanks to their depth of size variety. When it comes to transparency, ASKET operates on a full-disclosure model and goes into great detail about the nature of their suppliers and manufacturing, and the true cost of each piece they make. They even share journal-like recounts of their own development journeys, and the ups and downs they’ve faced along the way.
