My favourite home...ever

You may have noticed I love Paris-based magazine MilK - their decor features in particular. I was pretty stoked when I came across the latest issue of MilK Decoration at a local magazine shop a few weeks back. There are lots of fantastic homes inside but one in particular knocked it right out of the ballpark. It is the vacation home of Laurence (co-founder of the shop Serendipity) located on Île de Ré, an island off the west coast of France. This is the home of my dreams - every single inch of it. Ocean views for starters, large windows, high ceilings, wide plank wood flooring, earthy colour palette, beautiful lighting (Jieldé!), raw & natural textures (those linen sofa covers and bedding!), vintage re-purposed items (tubs from washing machines used as bedside tables), large artwork....it is an endless list. If you can find this magazine, BUY IT. It is worth every cent, and more. These photos look even more glorious in print. This has become my new bible. I sleep with it under my pillow. ;) Photos via Karel Balas.

Oh jeez! That's pretty great all right. The weird bendy trees in the first photo - you can buy them in this store in Leslieville, TO and they are really expensive!
