Something Old, Something New

I found so much beautiful inspiration in the homes above, I had to share them with all of you.

I tend to feel a stronger connection to decor featured in vintage photographs. Of course, flooding light is a sure “in” with me…

Though I am generally taken by the old, I can’t quite reject the new.

Platform beds have surprisingly appealed to me for a while now. Previously, Princess and the Pea-stacked beds were a rule of thumb in my boudoir bible. However, over time, something about dreaming on a low-to-the-ground piece of wood has become rather appealing to me {and not because it reminds me of Kate Winslet floating around on the wooden board in Titanic}. Less surely seems to be more in my eyes nowadays!

Anyway, I’ve decided that my next bedroom is going to be based on this image from the film I Love You, Alice B Toklas!:

It’s sort of 60’s flower child meets Indian elegance.

Man, I wish I could’ve been a part of Venice Beach at its prime.

small space, big taste

If you live in a large metropolitan area such as New York City {or, in this case, Paris} you know what it’s like to CRAM! Apartments and flats in these aforementioned cities are not what suburbanites are familiar with- Take for instance, Elodie via http://www.leblogdelamechante.fr/ . She’s a designer/interior architect as well as a photographer, and she resides in a 26m² flat, which is roughly 279 square feet. It’s always riveting for me to see how one personalizes their living space, so here are a few captures from miss Elodie’s lovely landing.
