TGIF! Naughty me neglecting my blogging duties. I’ve been a busy busy person but today I came across this and thought it was too good to pass up. I think I’m developing a thing for chocolate coloured floors because I love these! and I’m not sure what that crazy chemistry contraption is in the background but I’ll have that too.

Spotted this over on Dust Jacket this morning. Isn’t it fab? This Stockholm apartment belongs to Swedish set stylist Joanna Lavén. Her apartment has been featured in Residence mag before but has undergone quite a transformation. It’s a great example of how changing just a few things like paint colours or flooring can have such a different effect.

Simply a stunning space with right balance of colour, texture & materials. Of course I’m loving the mid century pieces aka the PK22 chairs and Jacobsen lamp (my love for mid century modern is getting out of hand……) and those doors?! Sliding crittall doors = Genius.

Oh no. Now I’m desperately on the hunt for Platner side chairs (I don’t even have a dining table nor the room, or the money…. especially the money) - because who wouldn’t want them after seeing this? Paired with the Calacatta marble Tulip table (which I may or may not have purchased this week for a STEAL on ebay, bloody ebay and it’s the side table version people - don’t be jealous. Ok be a little jealous, but I still can’t afford the dining table. I digress) they almost look like they were made for each other. Definitely a combo I am going to be using in the future.
What don’t I love about this Paris apartment? I stumbled upon this image whilst researching Platner lounge chairs for a current project (I’d give my right leg for one btw….) and was blown away by this room. Nothing tugs at my heartstrings more than a good mix of period features, high ceilings, and mid century furniture.

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.

Ahhhhh, yet another kitchen image that has me thinking about the possibilities! I love love love the idea of incorporating an old salvaged glass display cabinet as a major storage piece in a kitchen. Not easy nor cheap but so worth it don’t you think? and the natural wood island with marble counter ties in perfectly whilst adding a more contemporary feel. Ohhhh no. My brain is running away with my thoughts again……
See this was the colour I was going for! What is that? Black? Deep deep Green? Midnight Green? I suspect it’s black. My living room wall is now a very dark shade of, well…….black….and I knew it would turn out that way, yet it’s still not quite the right colour. Disappointing isn’t it? When things don’t turn out the way you had hoped?. Whether it’s a person or a room, a colour or that purchase off eBay (Bloody eBay. It looked a lot better on EBAY!) I guess it’s a reality check. Set your expectations lower and you may be pleasantly surprised (except with ebay - I’m not sure they can get much lower….). One to work on for this year me thinks. As of now I’m readjusting my expectations of things/people so that when the little things happen it always seems like a positive and never a disappointment.

How fun is this little gem? Part of the Dishoom Pop Up restaurant that opened on the South Bank a few years ago, it’s sadly no longer there, however we can but hope that it returns this summer. In the mean time you can visit the originals in Covent Garden and Shoreditch. This weekend anyone??
