WelI officially have a design crush on architect Joseph Dirand. I mean the man can design! He’s a master at proportion and mixing materials and he loves his velvet - need I say more…. This little snapshot is from the restaurant Monsieur Bleu. Isn’t is great?! Busy, elegant, contemporary, retro, and classic yet completely distinctive. Love it.

Is it just me or are those chair FABULOUS! We’ll call them lady finger chairs because that’s the first thing that comes to mind (yeah I’m weird….) and I love them. If you are ever passing by Sketch pop in a have a look. It’s a lot of pink (I mean A LOT of pink) but the look is consistent and it’s different! We like a bit of different.

Don’t judge me……. my taste is becoming more bizarre by the day, I’m fully aware of this, but to be fair….. I blame it on my clients :) I mean just this week I’ve been dealing with palm wallpapers, flamingos, taxidermy bears, huge paper horse sculptures, all manner of vintage Italian wall lights and chandeliers and so much more. Talking to Paris, NY, Montana (random right?) Milan and even Australia, so it’s no wonder it takes a lot to pique my interest these days. Anyway…..I’m loving the palm wallpaper in this image and the chevron stripe on the bath tub. It’s cosy eclectic :)

Ugh, my week is sooo busy I’d kill for a weekend away. Somewhere farmy and countrified (yes I’m aware that they’re not real words……) with fields and woods and a stream or a river, not fussy really. Yes, a lovely contemporary farmhouse to retreat to. Perfect.

And over on the Design Files this morning was a feature on one of my favourite Interior Stylists, Sibella Court. I feel like Sibella and I should most definitely be friends (not in a creepy way….and should we ever meet ). Quite simply we share an appreciation for all things curious and obscure. She is a collector, a beach comber, a hunter - like me. You’ll know what I mean if this applies to you and you won’t understand it if it doesn’t. Oh Sibella, please be my friend, or at least take me to all your treasure finding locations!

Now that I’m back from my mini break (Boooo!) it’s time to start thinking about really getting the renovations started. Pulled some stuff out of storage to try and wade through all the crap sort it out…… It’s amazing how you forget what you have and how exciting it is rediscovering it all!

Good morning World! So happy it’s the weekend! I LOVE this image above. It’s an old one but I never tire of it. It makes me want to go out and hunt! - which I will be doing next week in the Caribbean (jealous much?). I’m due for a quick trip home and I’m sooo excited. I have so many treasures at home, like above, that I’ve collected over the years and I’m thinking it’s about time I shipped them to London. It’s all part of my master plan Muahahaha! Watch this space!

I am posting this for no other reason than I want it! I’m talking about the small basket to the right of course (Ha, kidding, obviously the light….Silly mood - don’t ask…..) In all seriousness isn’t that light Amazeballs?!? Lord knows where in my house it would go but that’s ok - I’ll just put it one of my other houses……you know, the ones I plan to have dotted all over the world. Simple.
