A colourful spot – Amalfi Coast Quilt

Amalfi Coast Quilt by Neu4bauer

Hello everyone,

I am not supposed to tell you this, but the Amalfi Quilt has SUCH a long history in our house, lying around because unfinished that we all believed it would never made it ;). But far from it: last month my mom finished this vibrant and very colourful blanket which was inspired by an image of the city Riomaggiore at the Amalfi Coast in Italy.

My mom then used a traditional house pattern and extended it to create that uneven coast look. The borders are made of green grass, blue sky with clouds and at the bottom there is fabric representing the quay wall. It is the perfect coloured spot in our newly refurbished wintergarden (more on that later!).

Yours, Theresa

P.S. In the course of five minutes we today decided that I should cut my hair again. Now I sit here with a real short curly bob, editting the pictures of today's little photo shoot! I am really excited to post these images tomorrow and what you'll say! Good example for short-circuit decisions *hehe*

Hallo an alle,

ich darf es euch eigentlich nicht erzählen, jedoch hat dieses Amalfi-Quilt eine sooo lange Geschichte in unserem Haus (nämlich herumliegend und noch nicht fertiggestellt), dass ich so manches Mal befürchtete, es würde wohl nie fertigwerden. Aber weit gefehlt: im August beendete meine Mutter die Arbeit an der dynamischen und farbenfrohen Decke. Inspiriert wurde sie von einem Bild der Stadt Riomaggiore an der Amalfi-Küste in Italien. Meine Mutter veränderte dann ein traditionelles Hausmuster (in fast jedem Quilt-Buch zu finden), um die unruhige Küstenlinie geometrisch nachzubauen. Die Ränder sind aus verschiedenen thematischen Stoffen zusammengesetzt: grünes Gras, blauer Himmel mit Wolken und am unteren Ende ein Stoff welcher die Kaimauern repräsentiert. Es ist der perfekte Farbpunkt in unserem renovierten Wintergarten (davon zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt mehr!).

Alles Liebe, Eure Thea

P.S. Wir haben heute innerhalb von 5 Minuten entschieden, dass ich mir die Haare wieder abschneiden muss!! Jetzt sitz ich hier wieder mit einem Bubikopf und editiere die Bilder des Fotoshootings davon! Freue mich, die Bilder morgen zu posten ;)! Gutes Beispiel von Kurzschlussentscheidungen *hihi*

So much red! A lovelies shopping guide

July is just flying by and what would this month's colour theme be without at least one shopping guide. These are a few lovelies I've found in the last while. However what I especially like are the high-definition polaroids, which you can download via fuzzimo. Just hover with your mouse over any polaroid and you'll see the full product!

Yours, Theresa

Juli fliegt nur so dahin und was wäre der Monat mit der Farbe ROT ohne ein paar Tipps zum Online-Shopping. Dies sind ein paar Kleinigkeiten, die ich in der letzten Zeit gefunden habe. Besonders mag ich allerdings die Polaroids (hochauflösend), die es als Gratis-Download auf fuzzimo gibt! Einfach mal mit der Maus über die Polaroid-Bilder gehen und ihr seht das Produkt im Vollen!

Red July starts with Poppy Seed Cupcakes!

Red Poppyseed Muffins

Hello everyone,

as I mentioned in the wallpaper post, July will be the month of the wonderful and vibrant colour RED in all its varieties and beauty. To get inspirations how to use all the different shades I already created the obligatory Pinterest Board and it is already nicely filled with gems and finds (75 today and adding on every minute ;))!


But there is more!

Hello everyone!

I hope you've had a better week than I had. It was mostly dominated by studying. My first exam I finally took on Thursday, the next one is on Monday and then comes the most dreaded one on 14th July. So bear with me when there are a few droughts in blogging ;). This is why I also have to extend the colour BLUE (= June) for two more days because I want to show you more dresses from our garden shooting.

They are here!! Blue shoes update … + outfit tip!



I have become very good in waiting for packages and deliveries – most of the time I am not even in Leipzig when my stuff arrives – so you get patient. Even bigger the joy when you finally get this ASOS package with the long-awaited blue shoes!

Wallpaper June 2011

I hope you all had a lovely start in it and I want to sweeten up this month with a new wallpaper. The picture comes from "Berlins Modenblatt" from 1956. I just love all the details which are hidden in these illustrations. That's why I've chosen two different sets of views for the iPhone and iPad wallpaper this month!

Prada (2) – Striped green skirt

IMG_0139


Prada 2 - Green-and-black-striped skirtToday it is a skirt and it is part of Toni's PRADA wardrobe. With a little yellow rim at the very bottom of the skirt she might feel a little overly patriotic since these are the colours of our Saxon flag, but nevertheless it is a beautiful skirt and the first time we took it out was on a little trip to Kurfürstendamm in Berlin last week. It was a beautiful day when we checked out an old grand hotel which is converted into flats and apartments, had coffee at Café Einstein and observed the people around the lovely little triangle of Schlüterstraße/Kudamm ;)

Toni combined the skirt with a black turtleneck and black pumps however the skirts are quite versatile and go with any white blouse or colourful sweater (find these at ZARA these days for as low as 12 Euro) as well!
Illustration by Neu4bauer, inspired by Jordi Labanda!

Heute ist's ein Rock und er ist Teil des Kleiderschranks von Toni, der natürlich auch mit ein paar PRADA-Teilen aufgemöbelt wurde. Mit einem kleinen gelben Innensaum im schwingenden Teil mag sich meine Schwester vielleicht besonders patriotisch fühlen, da dies schließlich die Farben unserer sächsischen Heimatflagge sind, aber nichtsdestotrotz ist es ein wunderschöner Rock!!! ;) Wir führten ihn sodann auch bei den ersten Sonnenstrahlen aus und fuhren gemeinsam zum Kurfürstendamm, wo wir uns ein altes Grand Hotel anschauten, welches saniert wird und zu Appartments umgebaut wird, schlürften Kaffee im Café Einstein und beobachteten die Leute im Dreieck Kudamm/Schlüterstraße!

Toni kombinierte den Rock mit schwarzen Rollkragenpullover und schwarzen Pumps. Zum Glück sind die Röcke total vielseitig auch mit weißer Bluse oder farbigen Pulloverchen (wie z.B. bei ZARA zur Zeit für ca. 12 Euro zu finden). Illustration von Neu4bauer, inspiriert von Jordi Labanda.

Green month March

ith the blog in a new layout and the months just passing by sooo quickly I also set up the new Pinterest colour board for March featuring all the finds all over the internet which fit in this month's theme of Greens. Don't forget to check out the old boards now and then because I am still saving onto them whenever I stumble over beautiful yellow or white things ;)

As an introduction to the hopefully warm spring I want to share some picture finds from my desktop!
Yours, Theresa

it dem Blog in neuem Layout und schon wieder (!) einem neuen Monat, gibt es natürlich auch wieder ein neue Pinterest Farbboard, welches all die schönsten Funde zeigt, die ich in den Schattierungen Grüns im Internet gefunden habe. Ausdrücklich möchte ich noch einmal einladen, auch die 'alten' Boards zuweilen zu besuchen, da ich beim Surfen auch gelbe oder weiße Sachen weiter speichere ;)

Und als kleine Einleitung in den hoffentlich baldigen warmen Frühling, gibt es heute einige Bilder, die ich bei mir auf der Festplatte gefunden habe :-)

Goodbye February! Farewell yellow month!

Malta in Yellow

Malta in YellowOn our last day in Valletta/Malta, I wanted to give you a little collection of pictures I've taken over the last couple of days. Toni and I held our eyes open in order to find yellow inspirations in Malta as well and when we could not take any more pictures of the light sand yellow houses I just threw on a new yellow sweater and walked around with the yellow satchel – colour blocking away ;)

Malta hasn't probably shown its face from its best with rainy weather and military ships lurking from everywhere. Also the news with Malta being one of the hot spots in dealing with Libya didn't exactly create a warm and welcoming feeling. Toni and I still succeeded in having a good time with many giggly moments, three finished books (which I want to tell you about in a later post) and just ONE sunny day spent at the bay of Marsaxlokk (the pictures with the colourful boats are from there). Tomorrow we are heading back home … where we are hopefully greeted with a warm spring arriving soon and we'll meet again next month with the colour GREEN ;)

Am letzten Tag in Valletta/Malta wollte ich euch nun eine kleine Kollektion an Bildern zeigen, die wir in den letzten Tagen geschossen haben. Toni und ich haben unsere Augen offengehalten und nach Gelb-Inspirationen gesucht. Als wir keine sandsteingelben Häuser mehr fotografieren konnten, weil meine Speicherkarte überzuquellen drohte, schmiss ich mir dann doch meinen neuen gelben Pullover über und stapfte mit dem gelben Schulranzen über die Insel – ernsthaftes colour-blocking!

Kick-off: February travelling in Yellow!



Okay, finally it is over! I am officially over with all exams and I am on the road again. Today I am writing to you from lovely town of Hamburg, where I am spending the weekend with a very good old friend I still know from school. Tonight she'll be showing a music documentation called 'The Island' from Efterklang. The last weeks of February hadn't been the most productive ones in regard of yellow inspirations and posting and I deeply apologize for that. However you can really be looking forward to the next posts because my mom had had very productive weeks and there are quite a few dresses and outfits waiting to be posted. A few snippets: she fell in love with PRADA Spring 2011, a few paint buckets seemingly exploded in her sewing cabinet and I am very serious about colour blocking this year :-).

Let's start yellow February!

ets do this by introducing the new wallpaper for February. While 'cleaning' my desktop and computer files I stumbled upon a very cute website called simpledesktops.com. I was very inspired and kind of liked the very clean and fresh look it gave my own desktop ;). One project I completed in the last weeks was a conception and design for a fictional 'tutorial-app' for iPad. In the progress of designing the whole thing, I also developped some icons for sewing, paper-crafting or knitting. Thus, you are in for a treat: you'll get to choose between two yellow wallpaper designs: the classic vintage fashion model as well as a modern vector symbol about crafting (scissors and glue bottle). So, this month both our wallpaper are very clean and unagitated. I hope you like that!

Secondly don't forget to check out the new Pinterest Board with yellow inspirations (the link in my sidebar is now active and leads you to it!). It will hopefully fill up in the course of this month!

Have a wonderful Friday.
Yours, Theresa

10 days without Posting … 6from6 {3}

IMG_0795IMG_0791IMG_0787IMG_0785IMG_0782



Hello everyone!

I hope you have missed me in the last 10 days. I sure did but with 3 projects and presentations and exams coming up … there is not much time to spare for blogging. However today is the last day with lectures for me and I thought I'll celebrate with another 6 for 6 blog. As you may figured, it will hard to complete the challenge in January with only 4 days left – but lets go for it.

6from6 - {2} - Jason Wu Spring 2011


Sello everyone!
Today just a quick post on Jason Wu's spring collection. In Leipzig the weather has been really spring-like, which has been really nice for a change. What's new? I haven't really been inspired for blogging because of a calculation & financial terms in publishing house-exam tomorrow morning (you may think of me between 9:30 and 10:30 ;)!

6from6 - Chanel Pre-Fall 2011

Hello my dear readers & fashionistas!

How has your week started? I am more than thrilled that the snow has melted away for now. It is amazing to be able to 'walk' again ;)

After reading of the 30 for 30-challenge on 'a pretty penny' I thought of a new challenge for my own blog in this month. Since I cannot be too ambitious next to all the uni work I called it 6from6. The challenge: create 6 outfits with WHITE BLOUSES (Colour Theme January) from 6 designer collections!!

Today:Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 (I have featured this one quite often already) with wide curderoy pants, self-knitted cardigan in brown wool and a very easy headband from glittery fabric and OF COURSE a white blouse. Just click on the illustration below to see it enlarged!

If you want to participate in the challenge, feel free to send me pictures of your outfits and I would love to feature them on the blog!

Yours, Theresa

Hallo meine lieben Leser!
Wie war für euch der Wochenstart? Ich bin sehr begeistert, dass der ganze Schnee und v.a. das Eis in Leipzig (erst einmal) weggetaut ist. Es ist ein unglaubliches Gefühl, wieder normal laufen zu können - kaum zu glauben ;)

Nachdem ich auf dem Blog 'a pretty penny' von der 30 for 30-challenge gelesen hab, wollte ich auch unbedingt für Neu4bauer eine Challenge einführen, die sich für unser Farbthema in diesem Jahr eignet. Da ich neben der ganzen Arbeit an der Hochschule nicht allzu ambitioniert rangehen sollte, hab ich sie 6from6 genannt. Die Regeln: im Monat Januar 6 Outfits mit WEISSEN BLUSEN (Farbthema dieses Monats) inspiriert von 6 Designerkollektionen zusammenzustellen!!

A colour a month – Neu4bauer goes white

collage_1s
Click on the image to see sources of the images on the pinterest board.

Sorry for the long absence from blogging. Lets finally start this year's blogging! Recently I saw a headline on my home page of the browser: "Tail Spin – Designers reinvent the classic white shirt – yes, again." It just added to a phenomenon I have noted all over this season's fashion reviews. Although there is a lot of talking about shapes and materials, everything is outweighed by the discussion about colours! A few years ago I had subscribed to a blog where every month was under a colour theme and since I very much enjoyed that blog I want to introduce this idea to Neu4bauer in the year 2011 (I will not promise to keep up the colour theme until December, but for the next 3 or 4 month I will stick to it).

Hello everyone,

after yesterday's last exam before Christmas I had a bit of a fallout and spent almost all day in bed with a cold. So, today's post is a bit delayed which I hope you'll excuse :-).
