Personal Space: Viktoria Dahlberg

When we first found images of Viktoria Dahlberg’s apartment, we immediately saved them for inspiration. After discovering she lived right in NYC, we just had to meet up with her and get a look at the Pinterest-perfect space. Moving from Stockholm, Sweden to Brooklyn in 2015, Viktoria dips her creativity across photography, style, and interior design. Read on to hear more about Viktoria’s apartment and her tips for decorating a new space.

Kick-Ass Chicks: Samantha Rothenberg of Violet Clair

We are constantly deep-diving through Instagram to find posts that just SPEAK to us. The second we found Violet Clair, we went on an endless scroll of like after like. Created by Samantha Rothenberg, Violet Clair is a creative brand stemming from her illustrations, making everything from single comic panels, to pins and keychains. We all know that if there’s one thing to get us hooked when it comes to anything, it’s a pastel palette. DONE. SOLD.

Last month, we got to step inside Samantha’s Brooklyn apartment and took a trip to the bold, colorful street mural she recently designed!

“I am wearing a vintage jacket with a Madewell turtleneck layered with a vintage Harley Davison shirt, Calvin Klein pinstripe trousers, and my favorite white Doc Martens. My style is eclectic, and I tend to mix and layer a lot of silhouettes, patterns and textures. My current style inspiration are actually Bratz dolls from when I was a child! I tend to go for clothes that I feel comfortable in because if you feel good, you look good. My current favorites are green (especially that PANTONE green color of 2017), my friends and their personal styles, Rihanna, and 90s silhouettes.”

colonial gown trivia

things we learned from abby the milliner, who wears colonial clothing every day at work:

  • women’s stays are generally quite comfortable if they’re worn correctly. if they’re laced wrong or they’re slightly out of place, they can be so uncomfortable that it’s impossible to focus on anything else. the reenactors in the shop will actually go into another room and completely undress in order to correct their stays. 
  • stays are great for improving your posture. a lot of the reenactors get aches when they first start wearing them, because they’re using certain stomach and shoulder muscles all day. 
  • the kerchief that women wear around their necks and tucked into their gowns isn’t normally a problem, but it can prove bothersome when a corner in the back comes untucked. the women in the shop called this “getting a draft,” and it’s enough of a problem that a friend of abby’s in the shop (who had no idea what we were talking about when abby called her over) warned abby off of touching her kerchief with a sharp “don’t untuck my kerchief!!” 

and, finally, my favorite fun fact:

  • stays creak in warm weather
