Westward Ho

Westward-restaurant-Little-Gull-metal-bar-Seattle-Remodelista_0This week’s interior inspiration feature is the bar at Westward Ho in Seattle featured by Remodelista. We love how the restaurant has transported the feeling of the sea and inside of a ship onto land, without making it cheesy. We saw this photo of the bar and the rustic side of the boat and immediately thought about our  ‘special beard’ selection! We envisioned a seaman with a thick and long beard enjoying a cold beer at the counter…

The Brighton Beard Company

tumblr_n7t1ihNjkY1temb6wo1_1280Our latest selection is inspired by the dapper bearded man. And you can’t be dapper unless that beard is propperly groomed. That’s where The Brighton Beard Company comes in. Lloyd and Jessica, who launched the brand last year in Brighton, England provide the essential when it comes beard-care: waxes, oils and combs. And they do it in style. The imagery of the company is inspired by the scenic South Coast of England and each product is named after a local smugglers from the area.

Pitti Uomo

tumblr_n7r59vHzbn1temb6wo1_1280This week my streetstyle inspiration comes form this shot: three gentlemen shot by Christopher Fenimore in Florence for the blog Four Pins during Italy’s men Fashion Week Pitti Uomo. Our selection #74 being inspired by the imagery of barber shops, I chose a picture that celebrates facial hair… And style, of course. A wealth of blazers and pocket squares.

Exposed Bikes

DW0608_SHIFT_08What a treat to stumble upon architect David Baker’s San Francisco loft shot by Dwell. He doesn’t try to hide his bikes from the view and I really like that. Instead, they act as an installation of art and accent the main room. I love the high ceilings, the textured rugs and the Californian light that flows through.

Bicy: Everything Bikes

tumblr_n7oj476sSa1temb6wo1_r1_1280As part of our selection #73 dedicated to cycling, I selected several products from the online store Bicy. Why? Because I love their collection that ranges from the most classic and traditional (like this British leather saddle by Brooks that has been around for over 100 years) to the most next level (like the LED lights that you can charge via a USB port or the plastic cup holder from Swedish brand Bookman). Lovers of bikes and aficionados of beautiful objects alike: check them out!
