I was going through some old pictures and came across this one of our home in London. The lounge with its resin floor and high ceilings was my favorite space in our home. It felt really spacious and airy and I love that in wintertime, we could also have a fire going. Apart from the wooden stool which I sold when we moved to France, I have pretty much everything. The NEW-YORK print is available here. The Milk lamp is stored waiting to find its spot in CASA PYLA and the dining table is now in our home in France (available for rentals here). I’m sometimes nostalgic about our 23 years in London. Mostly when I looked at old pictures ;-) I miss our family brunches in Chiswick, going to Columbia Road flower market, hanging out in the old Spitalfields market, and grabbing a bagel in Bricklane. Yet that old market had been destroyed by the time we left London and replaced by a new, property development. However, would I move back there and leave coastal living? …
I just finished a long interview for As You Like magazine (out in Feb 2017) which is dedicated to Digital Influencers and Bloggers and one of the questions about my home was why it was so white… White interiors and simple, beautiful white objects calm me down… As an Aries, I have often been told that red is my colour but frankly, I couldn’t think of a least appropriated colour for me. I thrive on white minimalist, uncluttered, simple interiors and as it’s busy enough in my head, I really don’t need more stimulation :-) Anyone else feeling like this!!?? This Suspence nomad lamp designed by GamFratesi has the same calming effect and would look perfectly at home in our dining room, should I be in the market for a new light but maybe you are… GamFratesi is a design duo formed in 2006 and consists of the Danish architect Stine Gam and the Italian architect Enrico Fratesi. Both thrive on Scandinavian functionalism and draw their inspiration from both classic Danish design and the tradition of craftsmanship and the classic Italian intellectual and …
This wonderful shot snapped by Sofia. It just feels like a happy room… I don’t know if it was the natural light flooding the room or the quintessential collection of art displayed on the walls or maybe this inviting table setting but I was in love as soon as I saw it and I felt it lifted up my heart.

I think the contrast I like the most when it comes to interiors is when sleek, contemporary designs like this gorgeous cluster light are enhanced against rustic, vintage, industrial materials. Via Casalil http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs
