Blue Shop ...

 
Oh goodness... Parisian shops are just the prettiest shops in the world!
Isn't everything lovelier with a dash of navy blue and a little bike parked out the front? Inspiration duly noted for when the time comes to have a little shop of my own xx

Foxy ...


 
The Fantastic Mr Fox is the most brilliant movie I have seen in ages... loved, loved, loved it...
And not just because the gorgeous George Clooney is in it, even without him it would be a brilliant masterpiece of whimsy and fun ...

And it has a gorgeous website too... check it out xx

Mirror Love ...


 Fabulous to finally find some shots of this house... when I was in Paris last year I ripped these photos out of a magazine very sneakily from the hotel we were staying in, always meaning to scan and post them but had misplaced the page in one of my many frantic clean-ups!

Lovely to stumble across them over at Sister Agency...
 
 This is the Istanbul residence of the designers of Autoban ... it's a glamorous old flat, but has been spectacularly updated with some very unexpected modern touches...

Watch out Mum, when I come home to build my little loft at the bottom of the hill I may have trouble NOT mirror tiling an entire wall ... hehe
 
 Oh, parquet floors are such a dream!
 
And the best part? This hidden kitchen with more glam mirror tiles behind...
Sorry the photos are so small but I hope you can get the drift... divine!

Simple Chic ...






 
 
 
 
 
And while I am on the topic of Malene Birger ... here is the gorgeous Spring Summer 2010 collection...
I could buy it all easily (oh, where for art thou benefactor when I need him??) xx

Casually Divine ...


Be still my beating heart ... I know I say that about everything but this place is seriously whoa!
Antlers in a battered leather bag? Heaven ...
 
 Of course it belongs to the most stylish woman and one of my favourite fashion designers (of which I own none!), Malene Birger.
 
 Oh... I love this! Especially how there is a door either side of the bed framing that perfect scene ... and a little puppy of course never goes astray!
 
 This look is amazing. Propping up art on these simple shelves is such an effective idea... and for someone like me who is completely over-the-top obsessed with changing things around all day, this movable art wall is a dream...


More casual loveliness...

And a perfectly scaled vignette on this silvered tray ... I like the mix of metals with the crystal lamp base and snake skin

Finishing with the best ... a vintage Chanel poster with casually propped mix and match shoes...
Perfect to the last drop xx

Skona Hem ... the loveliest interiors mag of them all xx

Port Hole ...

Plump & Tromp ...


I thought I would start the year with one of the cleverest ideas I have seen in ages...
From Marie Claire Maison, a tromp l'oeil beadhead of plumpy cushions...
Oh, how simple but definitely lovely!

Husband ...

I can't wait to get home and see my husbands new movie, The King's Speech ...
Hotly tipped to get him and Oscar, how exciting xx
