Introducing … New Contributor Louise to This Is Glamorous

IF YOU FOLLOW ALONG on Instagram, you may remember a beautiful grid of tiny illustrations featured there nearly a year ago; they were done by Interior Designer & Illustrator, Louise, who is currently based in Edinburgh. After the pleasure of a few lunches and cosy chats over wine in favourite pubs, it became clear that Louise would be a wonderful addition to This Is Glamorous and recently made her debut as Interiors Editor.

Read her articles on Gustavian stylebeautiful pink rooms to fall in love with, and most recently, an At Home With featuring Melissa Odabash, if you have not done so already. We are thrilled to welcome Louise as part of the TIG family and know you will love her work as much as well do.

And in other exciting news, some of your very favourites from shop.thisisglamorous.com & Belgrave Crescent are back and available for Pre-Order . . .

The wonderfully chic illustration by Louise that began it all — a few shots from the This Is Glamorous Instagram account that she casually put together . . .

Arguably, no mode of writing has influenced the past decade of novels more than autofiction, a catchall term for books that call themselves fiction while claiming to be rooted, in some way, in their authors’ real lives. Amid this boom, critics and readers alike have shown a certain anxiety over how based in fact a novel can be—and how anyone might know, given that no autofiction writer purports to be telling the complete, unadulterated truth. Is reality identifiable on the page? Is it ferret-out-able? Is it relevant?

At Home With: Savi of @savislook

BEIJING-BORN Savi of @savislook’s home was first featured here in our piece on the Camaleonda Sofa by Mario Bellini. The Weibo and YouTube influencer often gives glimpses of her home on her Instagram page and its filled with old-school vibes: 50s farmhouse meets mid-century modern with a nod to the 70s by way of an orange striped shag rug …

We turn to the Internet for answers. We want to connect, or understand, or simply appreciate something—even if it’s only Joe Rogan. It’s a fraught pursuit. As the Web keeps expanding faster and faster, it’s become saturated with lies and errors and loathsome ideas. It’s a Pacific Ocean that washes up skeevy wonders from its Great Garbage Patch. We long for a respite, a cove where simple rules are inscribed in the sand.

Blogger Style Inspiration No.17: Ilirida Krasniqi, Copenhagen

Albanian-born Ilirida Krasniqi is a dentist by day, and a style influencer when work is over. Based in Copenhagen, she has already caught the eye of Vogue Paris one to follow for her ability to capture the energy of the moment. We love her decidedly lady-like style: high-waisted trousers with crisp white shirts, belted trenches and tweed blazers, mules and kitten heels and strappy sandals…

The Tribune Tower rises above the streets of downtown Chicago in a majestic snarl of Gothic spires and flying buttresses that were designed to exude power and prestige. When plans for the building were announced in 1922, Colonel Robert R. McCormick, the longtime owner of the Chicago Tribune, said he wanted to erect “the world’s most beautiful office building” for his beloved newspaper. The best architects of the era were invited to submit designs; lofty quotes about the Fourth Estate were selected to adorn the lobby.

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

I SEEM TO HAVE become fond of Esty once again, after not really finding anything there for years, and then, all of a sudden, ordering handmade soaps and avocado oil face creams, art and photo frames and even gold jewellery. There is also a soft hand-knit mohair sweater from Greece currently in my cart, as well as a beautiful wicker chandelier, and a small oil painting …
