I am a true believer in your home should represents who you are as a person. It should tell the story of your life and where you have been. It has never been about how much a certain thing costs or who the designer is. Rules simply don't apply when you live outside the box.
Art has been a huge part of my life and I want the girls to grow up around paintings and Art...
Or to think outside the box while creating. If you don't have a paper canvas, use your fridge to create art.
Or be so inspired by a book that you recreate a particular image from the book. This book spines archway was inspired by a book called The Shadow of the wind.
Of course I had to make a wallpaper out of all the book pages I had from ripping out the book covers for the archway.
It is ok to say yes to the most magical childhood requests of having an indoor swing in the middle of your dining room. In my hunt for the most unusual things, I have found such interesting pieces with their own stories. This pale pink gilded dining chair was made in France before electricity was invented. I bought four of these beauties for all of 25 dollars. Of course they did not look like this when I found them. So it was not a huge surprise that somehow I would find this vintage carousal horse.
It has the most perfect patina and shabbiness. Within a day of bringing it home, Aurora decided to use it as her hats hanger.
So it resides happily in her room.
A girl and her very first pair of velvet pumps.
I can honestly say I want to move into her room now.
Welcome to our crazy world, little horse. I hope you like it here.
