Home Design Wishlist

There are few things I like to do more than perusing home and interior stuff. Ever since I was a kid I have loved to sit down with the La Redoute catalog and create rooms in my head. Sadly, despite being hooked to Changing Rooms and Location, Location, Location whilst growing up I never did achieve the childhood dream of becoming an interior designer (or a pilot), although I have had a black when writing about architecture and interiors for publications and agencies and so when we moved into our apartment –  a new build that was a while shell of potential – I am chomping at the bit to start adding personal touches and making it our own. Recent Paris flea market finds include a 60’s apple shaped amber bowl, 1970’s French school road safety poster and a lovely bird print in a leather frame. I am definitely more of a maximalist than a minimalist and quickly running out of wall space.

So when we moved into our current apartment –  a new build that was a white shell of potential – I was chomping at the bit to start adding personal touches and make it our own, always on the look out for unique pieces to add to our interior story. Recent Paris flea market finds include a 60’s apple shaped amber bowl (a replacement for one that our cat, Chewy, broke as a kitten), a 1970’s French school road safety poster and a lovely bird print in a leather frame. I am definitely more of a maximalist than a minimalist and quickly running out of wall space!

I feel that a home is constantly evolving as you take and away and add new finds – the latter is more often in our case. A bulk of our decorating is complete and now we are mostly tweaking, so on a day with good light – not like today’s September gloomy haze – I will share our pad. In the meantime, I thought I would share a few cool bits that I am coveting atm…

  1. Gorgeous bee print by Natalie Laura Ellen.
  2. Dream pink dish by Le Creuset.
  3. Justina Blakeney designed bamboo mirror at Lulu and Georgia.
  4. Bold banana bowl by Ben Simon.
  5. Gold salad tongs by La Redoute.
  6. Kare Ivory plush rug at Domino.
  7. Two perfect sized baskets from Maisons du Monde.
  8. ‘Put in a good word’ notebook by Kate Spade.
