5 things I want right now!

5 things I want right now for an all black lookIt has been a pretty gloomy week on various levels so let’s lighten up things with a bit of fashion and it’s fridYEAH after all…

I really love this all black look I posted on Instagram, and it’s pretty much my go-to outfit at the moment. It’s fashionable, comfy, easy to pull together with a hint of fashion. I usually pair it with an oversized coat and if the weather gets warmer, swap my black jumper for a white tee-shirt. Voilà, job done! READ MORE...

3 beautiful dark grey bedrooms

March 16, 2016

I did some housecleaning on Sunday and changed our linen bedlinen for a dark grey. Looking at our bedroom (first pic/and here), I have to admit that while I love white interiors, I really love the dark grey wall of our bedroom in France.
Dark grey feels stylish and modern yet very intimate and welcoming. Once we have sold this house, I’m planning to move one of the Ikea Malm bedframes back to the bigger house and paint it in dark grey like the back wall of our bedroom. Has anyone done this before on Ikea’s Malm?

Until then, here are three beautiful dark bedrooms which I find very inspiring.
The first one was photographed by Wendy for Nu Interieur, a Dutch company I love a lot and which designed the leather handles I used in our bedroom in London.
I love the Flos 265 Wall Lamp in the second bedroom (sorry couldn’t find the author & credit accordingly).
I also think the bedframe in the third picture which looks like a large painted canvas, look fabulous and should be fairly easy to do with a large piece of MDF. Which one do you like the most?3 beautiful dark on dark bedrooms to inspire you3 beautiful dark on dark bedrooms to inspire you3 beautiful dark on dark bedrooms to inspire you// 1. Photography: Wendy van Woudenberg| 2. | 3.

HOUSE TOUR: A beautiful, architectural house with black claddingHaving fitted cladding to the back of our home in London (one more photo too), painted the front of the house and Steve’s home office/tree house in black, the Ridge Road residence with its beautiful black cladding and its Butterfly chairs with my name on it, really stroke a chord with me.
