I love things which are a little bit fun and quirky and the trompe l’oeil (“trick the eye” in French) wallpaper collections from British designer Deborah Bowness certainly hit the spot! I had seen the wallpaper strips with dresses before (top right), but shamefully I had not connected them up with this particular designer, nor had […]
The word for this colour spectra is definetely beautifulness. There are so many pretty, delicate, spiritual and intriguing hues of purple and pink. The caring pink derived from red and white, and the meditative purple mixed out of warm red and cool blue certainly add interest and that special vibe to a room. | image […]
I have one more post on my mind in this colour spree. And this one will lead us back to some serious trend talk. Have you noticed the emerge of black furniture recently?

I never get tired of blue. It’s my favourite colour. It is a creative colour (great for home office/study), a soothing colour (great for bedroom); an easily matched, versatile, cold colour.

Out of the frying pan, into the fire. Again. I just can’t get enough of these carved headboards. They haunt me. Or I hunt them :) Feminine, Romantic, Parisian Chic…the more French, the better. | pics: living etc | | this new-find at Graham & Green isn’t too bad either..Cravings!!|
Personally, I loooove the French/Parisian Chic Eclectic Interior Style…Especially in combination with an industrial feeling or mixed with elements of the clean Scandinavian style. I have unanimously decided that my old pink unicycle (mon cher monocycle!) will be haning on our living room wall in the new place. Mm yeah, I will post a picture […]
