HAPPY AUTUMN FASHION | ALL Knitwear

All Knitwear Happy Autumn selection made by Dancers Road blog

Autumn becomes so much more happy with these hats and sweaters from ALL Knitwear! They are warm yet give me a little bright and light summer feeling. The best of both seasons, if you ask me. What you see here is just a little selection I made but there are so much more wonderful examples to find on the labels website that will put a smile on your face. I’m a big fan and one of these sweaters is definitely on my wish list for this season although I might have to save up a little first, before I can buy one. The white one in the middle of the first row is my favourite although picking favourites with these ones is not easy because I like them all and I could probably wear a different one every day of the week.

ALL Knitwear is a small knitwear label created by Annie Larson based in Brooklyn NY. And amazingly all these items are handmade by Larson herself in her studio. The label has a lovely website, that is definitely worth visiting, where you can read more on the story behind these slow-growing, idiosyncratic collection of handmade sweaters and hats. Enjoy!

DANCERS ROAD | NEW SEASON COMING UP

Vintage South American Totem Wall Hanging from Dancers Road

My holiday ended last Sunday and even though I have that melancholic summer is almost over feel all over me I’m also looking forward to the new season and everything that is to come. On my travels I found many many beautiful vintage treasuries that will soon be listed in my Etsy shop. I made a little start photographing them last week and I can’t wait to make many more nice photos of all them. This summer I’ve also been taking some big steps into making young Dancers Road into a grown up business but I will tell you more of that later!

This beautiful 1970’s wall hanging is one of the new items I listed in the shop last week and it’s one of my personal favourites because of the bright and warm colours and the totem image.

HOME DECO | THE FOLK LOOK

shop the macedonian folk interior look selection made by DANCERS ROAD blog

Inspired by the Museum for Ethno culture and the photos from my last post I made this little ensemble of folk items to create a folk look at home and to take a little bit of my Macedonian holiday home. Some pieces are vintage, others are new and you can shop them online. The peacock feathers in a vase really inspired me, I remembered I use to have them in my room when I was a child and had almost forgotten about them. I always thought they were a little mysterious, coming from such magical birds. The blanket from Urban Outfitters is also one of my personal favourites because it instantly creates a warm and cosy look in a room.

INTERIOR | INSPIRATION FROM MACEDONIA

Traditional Macedonian Interior from the Museum of Ethno Culture Macedonia from DancersRoad blog www.dancersroad.wordpress.com

Being a hug admirer of everything folk I’m really at the right place at the moment (still in Macedonia). There are colourful patterns everywhere around me here and lot’s of handmade textiles on the walls, ground, chairs and couches. Tomorrow we’ll visit Ohrid and hopefully there will be time to visit the Museum for Ethno Culture in Resen. These images of traditional Macedonian interiors come from their website and I would really love to see them in real life. The furniture is beautiful and I love the mixture of  textiles and how every individual item is different and unique yet it all fits together. Decoration with so much eye for detail <3.

BOHEMIAN HOME | VINTAGE FINDINGS

Vintage treasuries for the warm bohemian home selected by DancersRoad blog

Dusty pink is one of my absolute favourite colours in the world, I love wearing clothes in that powder pink shade and I love it in my interior. This colour combines beautifully with almost all other colours and it creates a warm and cosy feel, perfect for the eclectic bohemian home. Finding the right pink items can be difficult but I found some great pieces on Etsy. The antique pink couch is absolutely magnificent and I can’t get over the absolute uniqueness of this little lamp bowl with the cute little dog guarding it. Items like this make my vintage loving heart beat a little bit faster. I found all these vintage items on Etsy and you can shop them here:

VINAGE TAPESTRY, TRIPOD KIDNEY TABLE, KILLIM PILLOW, WOODEN BOWL,

WATERCOLOR DRAWING, PINK EDWARDIAN COUCH, ART DECO LAMP

STORIES FROM THE ALTER LIFE | THE BEGINNING

stories from the alter life by Dancers Road

On most days I love my house and my furniture and my whole interior. I love my collection of more than 50 West Germany vases, I love my midcentury modern wooden furniture, I love my many houseplants and the olive green and citron colours on the wall and my brown coloured bedroom with all my embroideries on the wall. Well most days…

And then there are days were I feel a little different, the days were I start thinking about painting my walls white (!) or get rid of the couch and fill the floor with large Moroccan pillows, the days were I’ve got the urge to surround myself with things that glitter and shine. Or the days on which I want to change the house into something more rustic because that’s my mood for the moment. Do you know that feeling?

I know I would make an absolute perfect billionaire. I would do so well with more than one house to decorate. A farm, a cabin in the woods, a Pied-a-Terre in Paris, a studio in Berlin and one in New York too. A gypsy wagon for on the road and a mansion in Bretagne… Of course that’s only possible in my imagination… for now at least but a girl can dream big right?

As a child I made up characters, imaginary people with life’s that were very different from mine. I cut out pictures of women and girls from magazines and fantasies what they would wear. I imagined where they would live and I made drawings of the interiors of their houses. I never really stopped doing that as a grown up. I still dream of living a different life every now and then with different clothes and a different house. And now there’s the internet. And on the web anything is possible. The internet is just perfect for playing around with alter lives and alter egos. So from now on, every now and then when I dream about living an other life in another house I will share that alter life with you here on the blog as a new blog item: Stories from the alter life.
