Well hello? What have we got here? Loving the Lindsey and rather digging the rest of the room too. I mean that table is positively cartoonish! but yet I don’t hate it (dear god what’s happening to me……furry sofas, cartoon tables….). It’s sort of Grown Up cartoonish if that makes sense. Sophisticated and you can bet very expensive.

Genius! This is what I’ve been missing. A Hammock in my house! As ridiculous as it sounds you have to admit this does look pretty cool, however impractical it may be and I think I’d be further justified because I am after all from the Caribbean. Now, just have to figure out where………

Happy Happy Friday! Ugh the weekend can’t come quick enough. I need a change of pace and some new scenery but for now this will do. I do love a good set of Spiral stairs.

Oh dear god! is that a furry sofa? A furry polar bear sofa? I may have died and gone to mid century heaven (or Hell if you’re not into furry sofas….which is most of you). If you keep in touch with this blog at all then this won’t surprise you. You’ll know my taste if FABULOUS bizarre cool quirky……different. So yep, furry sofas and chevron floors make my hot list.

How about this for a wonderfully eclectic living room?!? I think it’s the walls that capture my attention. They are truly bizarre! but the colour is quite amazing.

You know when you see something and you go on a manic hunt to find it? Yep - so that happened. I’m slightly obsessed with these chairs at the moment. Maybe it’s because I’m loving pink right now but I just adore them!. I will track them down but in the mean time if any of you lovely people out there know who makes them then please do share!

***NEWS FLASH!*** after much hunting I’ve found them! They are the Elettra Lounge Chair by Arflex. Of course they cost more than my life…. (typical) but a girl can dream.

Still living off my French high I’ve been looking like a crazy person at French interiors in an attempt to keep that flame of inspiration burning (it can so easily dwindle in the hecticness of London life). This Paris apartment is virtually next to the Eiffel Tower….had I known I may have knocked on the door to say Bonjour!.

Bonsoir mes cheries! I’m back from Paris and Ooooooh was it good. A jam packed weekend of treasure hunting in the Saint Ouen flea markets, eating patisseries, drinking wine (lots of wine) and more treasure hunting. Couldn’t have asked for a better escape. Thank you Paris, I will be returning.

Have you ever read RUM? Well you should do! Unfortunately they don’t sell it outside of Denmark (Booo!) but if I could recommend subscribing to one magazine this year it would be RUM. OK, so you might not have a clue what the text says but trust me, the visuals more than make up for the language barrier. The above kitchen is just a snippet of what RUM has to offer. I’m in love (of course…..) with the gold drawer units and that flat muted green wall. It’s simple and a little bit rustic but glamorous and interesting all at once. It’s such a contradiction but oh my dayz does it work well!

I think it’s fair to say (and fairly obvious) that I haven’t been inspired much lately. It’s been a rough couple of weeks as I lost a little being who I loved very much (Don’t worry people, it’s a cat……..not a human). It’s funny how attached we become to our pets. They become an extension of our family and life can be unimaginable without them, so when they are suddenly taken from you there is this feeling of confusion and emptiness and actually, guilt - that perhaps you have failed them somehow. They are after all your responsibility. But no amount of beating yourself up will change the fact that they are gone and anyway, I know I’m a good mum. I absolutely love animals and I always say that life is richer with them in it. Even if that time is a short one. Alas, life must go on, so with my new responsibility free freedom I’m focusing a little more on what I want. I’m off to Paris this weekend to go to Maison Objet. My friend Kristina Johansson is joining me and I’m very much looking forward to a weekend of design, flea markets and good old French culture (Oui oui! Macaroons s’il vous plaÎt!). My only concern is that I’ll see too many things I want that I can’t bring back with me! But who am I kidding…… where there’s a will there’s a way……..

Sunday Funday! It’s a long weekend here and I’m feeling bright & inspired! We could all use a little colour in our lives every once in a while. I mean how could you not feel happy when walking through this door? Hallways are transient spaces but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with them. In fact, if you’re only passing through then make the most of it! be bold, be bright and decorate it like a disco ball! (or not….. just have fun!)

I mean, I’m all for making a statement in your home but this? Fabulous darling! Everyone should have a glitter wall and some shearling stools in their house!

Did you hear? Elle Decoration UK has revamped their website and now has a whole host of fun new features including inspirational room images, shopping and design news. Maybe I’m late to the party on this one (I’ve been a terrible blogger as of late!) but at least this is a start. Other major magazines (AD, Living Etc) have had this and more for yonks now, so Welcome to the party Elle Decoration! Good of you to join :)

P.s. I want that daybed and side table please.
