Quiet Lyricism in a Home

Have you ever fallen in love with an object? I do, all the time. I harbour huge crushes on chairs - right now, the Swan chair and a Bertoia diamond are fighting it out at the top of my lust list. In a tussle between interiors and fashion, I would never be able to unwaveringly pick one.

I love interiors that have a quiet nesting quality. While striking coats of paint do catch my eye, cream coloured walls suit me best. I like being able to think, to dream, to breathe. This appartment has the essentials. A big, inviting workspace, simple shelves for a ton of books, a tiny yet stylish bath, a dining nook for slow mornings or a pot of green tea in the late afternoon and pure white sheets to snuggle under after a tiring day. Bliss.

  1. I just discovered your lovely blog and have signed up as a follower. I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ and have added you to my blogroll. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.
    It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’.

  2. Lovely interiors. Very zen.
