Blood and Champagne

Blood and Champagne

Without letting the style run away with me and end in hoarding piles of crap, I really like all things botany and apothecary related. Prints on plant anatomy, chemistry jars, pot plants and apothecary bottles can all look so lovely in clean and minimal settings.

Kilim Style

I’ve fallen in love with the oriental rug. I love the designs, the colours, the textures and even the smell of the thick woven material.

Anything Kilim or oriental design has landed on my Christmas wish list and I think a lovely, light coloured runner going through a passage would be a grand finishing touch to a home.

There are SO many beautiful colours and designs (which means I’ll have to do another post on them) but these are some of my favourites.

Animal Art

There are a lot of things I love when it comes to my type of art. Lately these things include colourful birds, deer antlers and animal heads on human bodies dressed in fancy human outfits doing things only humans can do, so you can only imagine my excitement when I found Loopy Lolly on Etsy selling posters of all of those wonderful elements combined.

I can just see these hanging in the entrance way of our new apartment, much to Simon’s horror. Every evening he’ll arrive home to be greeted by a very grand (yet judgmental) looking Sausage dog in a top hat or a pigeon with an eye glass. What a welcome!

Paola Navone summer home Jerome Galland

Clean, white and natural. Wonderful thoughts of summer, long hours in the sun and salty sea air engulf me when I see houses like this.

The summer house of designer Paola Navone (photographed by Jerome Galland) is a heavenly escape. Natural stone, light breezy rooms and a raised sitting area is the perfect retreat after a hard day relaxing.

Thank you all for reading my blog by the way, I honestly didn’t think anyone would.
