I know I keep adoring Pakistani truck art all over my blog but it’s so important to me considering how much detail is put into it. It’s also nice to see Pakistani models and fashion designers recognizing this art as a separate and distinctive form of expression in Pakistan.
If you look closer at the truck, you will see many little symbols of Pakistani Muslim identity and multi-ethnicity. You can see a painting of Masjid-e-Nabvi (in Madina) on the upper front of the truck. Close to it, you’ll find a peacock drawn - which has a lot of significance in Pakistani poetry and literature for its beauty and elegance. You can see an eye drawn often used to ward off the Evil Eye or Bad-Nazar. On the right corner, you’ll see “Ya Allah” painted with “Ya Muhammad” on the left. Fishtail painted close by and even more.
There’s so much going on. That’s why it’s so beautiful.
In a remote part of Swedish Lapland, tucked away in a forest just south of the Arctic Circle, are the most stylish tree houses in the world. The Treehotel in Harads, Sweden, has five unique “treerooms” all elevated 4-6 meters above ground: The Cabin, The Mirrorcube, The Bird’s Nest, The Blue Cone, and The UFO. Each room was designed by one of Scandinavia’s leading architects with custom-designed furniture, lighting, and fabrics.
The idea behind the Treehotel is to create a space that gives people a chance to “experience nature amongst the tree-tops, while also providing a uniquely designed housing experience.” Want to see more? Check out photos Instagrammers have taken there by visiting the Treehotel location page.
