Lavishly French

Essentially the opposite of my last post which was modern and minimalist, this home is about as grand, lavish and French as it gets! The French Rooms is available as a location space through lordshippark.com and is two rooms occupying the reception floor of an imposing Victorian villa. Furnished with the finest French antiques, opulent fabrics and exquisite treasures, it's not exactly decor I would want to live with 24/7 but I sure would love a weekend visit - without the herd of cats!

This very large, 4 story Victorian home in London has been furnished with junk shop, auction and eBay finds. The kind of finds you can't find anywhere around the Ottawa area, and the kind I imagine salivating over if I ever have the opportunity to visit London, or Paris, or any other city with unimaginably fantastic flea markets. Welcome to my dream home, courtesy of the one and only, Shoot Factory

Kitchen love

Anyone else as besotted with deVOL kitchens as I am? Beautiful, handcrafted, traditional but up to anything that modern day life throws at them. Love.
