Wide open windows, gorgeous beams of light, powder pink antoriums, burning Diptyque candles, and some good tunes in the background...I saw Aslı welcoming me--in a black mini dress--through the luminousness to her minimalistically chic and impeccably decorated house.

It was 12 pm and she was giving me my first coffee of the day. However she had already had hers, long before I came, before going her shoot for Harper's Bazaar Magazine at 7 am in the morning. She is the fashion director of Bazaar and also designer of Beymen.
The red box with the peculiar head illustration on the cover of the 36th issue of McSweeney's Quarterly Concern is by artist Matt Furie. It began in 1998 as a literary journal that published only works rejected by other magazines. That rule was soon abandoned. This issue features a handwritten, illustrated story, four postcards, uncut roll of fortune-cookie fortunes, eight booklets and more. Each issue comes with a different design and different content.

A timeless iconic Louis Vuitton Nomad Noe bag originally produced for champagne bottles.

iPad in hand and a cup of tea at her side. Wearing a silk kimono or a cotton robe, with white ballet shoes that complement her Frenchitude--this is how you can imagine Aslı sitting in her balcony on sunny days.

The plastic ice-cube tray was an invitation for Stella McCartney's Spring 2012 fashion show. Stella's invitations and campaigns are always unique and full of humor--I love it!  The invitation  connects with her post-show comments: "It's a celebration of energy, freshness, and fitness".


I didn't know what to expect to see in Tuba's house, but I at the very least imagined her house to be proper reflection of how she looked: pretty. Mixed and matched, fresh, relaxed, and chic.
Frida Kahlo's strong personality and the courage she displays in painting her pains are the main reasons Tuba likes her.
Pregnancy was the main reason for her to start writing her first book 'Benim Tatlı Komposto Günlüğüm', which is a diary that she kept while she was pregnant. It was sort of a relief and escape from the painful process.

I feel like Turkish tiles were the starting point for determining the colors of the house. Turquoise, blue, and various tones of red.

 At the age of 19, when she started making money, she decided to invest art she could afford. Then her collection grew larger with time. The artpiece above belongs to Merve Morkoç.

The tiles at the bedside were originally made to put in the bathroom. However the architect of the house, Yalın Tan, thought it could give a kitch vibe so he changed his mind and put them in the bedroom.

The circular art piece on the wall belongs to Haluk Akakçe, her friend and roommate from when she lived in New York.
She launched a line of dresses for proms and summer parties in collaboration with Koton and this is her modeling for her own campaign 'Tuba Ünsal Loves Koton'.
