For various reasons lately, I’ve been daydreaming about moving to Paris for a spell, getting a little studio apartment and soaking up some culture.
Or maybe Berlin.
Or New York.
Wherever, a big part of my fantasy is based on the idea of a little apartment to call home. It would be small but perfectly formed with original features galore, naturellement.* In fact, a little something like this…
I love, love, love that super shiny upstand around the kitchen worksurface and the integrated shelf / extractor hood is really streamlined. Standard cooker hoods can look so ugly sometimes and this combines display and functionality perfectly. In fact, I wish I’d thought of that!
This reminds me of how much I want a Moroccan wedding blanket for my bed. If I’m not mistaken, the paper butterfly collage is by Cissy Cook, although I like her White Collection best, especially the little fan design. Perhaps I could have a go at recreating one of those for that spot above my sofa?
* I’m not sure my dreams can be sustained on my pitiful GCSE language skills, do you? Apologies to any actual French speakers out there… I just can’t help myself!
