How to find a peacock chair in 4 steps - Part 2

A couple weeks ago Jo posted her fabulous peahen chair she found at her favourite thrift shop. She mentionned that she was on the hunt for a peacock chair. And since seeing the peacock chair in Wary Meyers pad (who are my idols btw), I've been dreaming of having one of my own. So here are my 4 steps to finding a peacock chair.

1 - check craigslist on a daily basis and pray that one day a peacock chair will magically appear.
2 - almost drop dead from shock when an ad for "wicker chair - $20" appears on craigslist and IT TURNS OUT IT'S A PEACOCK CHAIR.
3 - scramble to organize borrowing your parents SUV and contact the seller to arrange a pickup (and seller tells you someone has already been in contact about it and would pick it up Sunday but if you can get there before that, it's yours). Tell him no problem, and you'll give him $30 for it too!
4 - Pick up chair (get extra bonus of meeting seller's albino Great Dane) and thank your father 6 times for driving you across town in traffic to get it.

From Russia with Love


Many of the spaces featured in Russian magazine Salon Interior are a bit too over the top for my taste, but I did find some photos that are a little more streamlined and modern, young and fresh. And just lovely - like Louis Ghost armchairs with a brick wall for a backdrop. YEAH!!

Cool and white


I can't get enough of white interiors at the moment. White and full of vintage finds and fabrics. Loving this house in London with it's great boho vibe. Another great location house from Shootspaces.
