Love Aesthetics is an intimate, light-filled digital space by Ivania Carpio. A web log about curating your life with a less-is-more approach.
As the name suggests, Love Aesthetics is about appreciating the visual aspects of life and seeing the exceptional in the everyday. It is a creative online space covering personal style in the broadest sense of the word through interior, fashion, no-fuss-beauty and design.
Ivania works as an art director, designer, creative consultant. She is a minimalist at heart, yet her basement is filled with found objects that would generally be consider as trash; broken glass, concrete blocks, lots of vintage clothes and chairs. She lives in Rotterdam, The Netherlands with her partner Romeo Pokomasse, their daughter Lois and cat Lucifer. She has been a mom longer than she has been an adult. Ivania finds it funny and a bit ridiculous to write in third person, so she won’t do so beyond her about-page.
Love Aesthetics was established in 2008 as one of The Netherlands’ very first style blogs.
Mutual love Collaborations include industry leaders such as Calvin Klein, Maison Margiela, Alaïa, Comme des Garçons, Nike and Dutch Vogue. Ivania’s work has been showcased in Galeri Philippe Jousse in Paris, Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam and she has been a guest curator for Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio.
Outside the digital realm, Ivania co-founded Aetelier in 2016. A product design venture and modern family business that she runs with her partner Romeo Pokomasse and brother Jos Carpio. Creating objects of use that are simple, contemporary and (multi) functional.
