Most of this month´s top 5 is connected to Spring, so it just made sense to give Spring a prominent position. We are definitely enjoying the warm sunshine and are excited that Summer is just around the corner.

I had seen these little creatures here and there online but when I saw them with my own eyes in Tokyo last month, that’s when I really fell in love. These are the cutest figurines ever! They are meant to hang on your tea cup or water glass but let´s be honest they make drinking difficult and they become annoying really quickly. Therefore mine are now scattered around the house, mainly hanging upside down on vases.
Never my first holiday destination thought, I was blown away by the beauty of the Irish countryside when we went to a Spring wedding over Easter. Castle Durrow, an hour´s ride from Dublin, was the perfect venue with breathtaking gardens & endless green fields. With an unusually warm sunny weekend, I guess the locals were right saying we got very lucky with the weather.
I love flowers but for some reason I am obsessed with tulips this Spring. In the middle of designing the SS16 collection, I feel a lot of inspiration has already come from the beautiful pink and white tulips in our garden. Pink fishnet with white trimmings – bring it on!
It´s painful. But new beginnings are brilliant. I really look forward to not living on top of cardboard boxes and unpacking in a new place. A blank canvas. I am glad it coincides with Spring cleaning as it´s easier to get rid of stuff that has been gathering dust under the bed for years.
