Staircase/bookcase love

Kim and I flit all over the web looking for inspiration. Sometimes we land on a site that the other has already visited. What a bummer! Already posted. Ssssshhhh don't tell anyone but sometimes, very rarely, we post something the other has already featured. Oooops! I loved Isabelle Juy's portfolio when I found L'Atelier d'Archi except Kim had beat me to it (here). Then I saw the staircase. Love at first sight and not in the original post. Hello lover! You're going up on the blog. Inspiration for the stairs in my now not quite so new old house. Mine is nowhere near as grand as this but oh how I lust after the Deborah Bowness wallpaper. The drama, the whimsy, the fun.



Is it wrong to be mesmerised by a powder room? Walls like smoke swirls or dye unwinding in water. If this was mine I'd be worried that I would spend far too much time in there sitting, lost in the eddies of the Aura wallpaper by Trove. Found in the portfolio of Sutro Architects.


Another project by Lucyna

Polish interior designer Lucyna Kołodziejska has been somewhat of a regular on DTI, sharing with us all kinds of fun, modern designs for mostly small apartments. This home isn't so small but decorated in typical Lucyna fashion - funky lighting, bold colour palette, murals and graphic wallpapers. And it's got a matching kitty. BONUS!

Hotel du Pantheon

Yesterday Jo took you to Mykonos. Today I'll be taking you to Paris, specifically to the Hôtel du Panthéon. It has recently been completely renovated and is now absolutely stunning, due in part to the fabulous decor by interior designer Valérie Manoïl. It's modernized, bold (the wallpaper selections!!) yet classy and I would absolutely love to stay here. (Photos by Jerome d'Almeida) 

P.S. I worked on a little desk facelift project yesterday if you want to check it out over on my page

Lilly Bunn bonus

A little Lilly Bunn extra special yumminess for your viewing pleasure. 

The most luscious dark teal glossy walls. TO DIE FOR. 

A quirky yet perfect combination of a beni ourain rug, a deep green velvet sofa, a brass and glass table and floral chair...oh yes, and a hippo. Eclectic awesome sauce.

A gorgeous pale mural paired with bold chair and lighting choices makes this an absolutely stunning dining room.

Leopard carpet in the bedroom? YES PLEASE!
