Around Here

It’s been ages since I did a little “around here” post, so here’s a few snaps of scenes lately and around the flat:

01. I love the pastel flats around Primrose Hill, they are so striking! Primrose Hill has definitely become my favorite neighborhoord in London, it’s so villagey and sweet.

02. Currently investing in a few coffee table books and I’m loving the yellow cover on this one. Also, we found that mid-century table and chair set on eBay and I’m obsessed, but more on that later!

03. I’ve totally become my mom and have been tapping into my horticulture side. I’m so clueless when it comes to plants so I’m hoping I’ll be able to keep these alive. And don’t you love that gold planter? Found it at Target.

04. It’s still freezing here in London so I found this super warm coat on Vestiaire Collective. Loving it with my sneakers and Acne scarf, it’s my go-to freezing-weather uniform.

05. A little kitchen scene with copper knives {from Target of course, had them sent all the way to the UK} , and a little marble tray to hold extra things.


Top Ten


Topshop Kimono Top | Illesteva Sunglasses | Velvet Hangers | Rodin Hair Oil | Earth Tu Face Face Wash | Crate & Barrel Server | Wooden Hand| Byredo Candle | Paul Andrew Pumps | Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody

Ten things I’ve been eyeing lately, I’m in need of a new pair of sunglasses and those Illestava ones are the perfect size. I’m also loving anything fringe at the moment so that cross-body is perfect! I spotted that two-tiered shelf on one of Into the Gloss’ Top Shelfies and I love the idea of using it in a bathroom to hold my plethora of products.

Le Sac En Papier







I spotted this little paper bag on a few French sites I like to read* {like Inside Closet and The Socialite Family} and thought it was such a nice detail – I love anything with a good graphic font! I’ve seen it used in nurseries for toys, on desks to hold craft supplies, styled with elegant books, and my personal favorite: used as a planter for leafy greens. You can purchase Le Sac En Papier here.

*I can’t read French, I just look at the pictures!

Morgane Sezalory’s Parisian Apartment

IMG_9420-1050x0-c-defaultIMG_92831-1050x0-c-defaultAfter Madewell’s collaboration with French designer Morgane Sezalory {creator of the label, Sézane}, I fell in love with Morgane’s Instagram feed which led me to pictures of her beautiful home. Morgane’s Parisian apartment is perfectly curated with layers of art and color. French design at its finest!

Kilim Rug



I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect kilim rug to add some warmth and interest into our very neutral flat. I found this vintage one on eBay and I’m loving everything about it — the design and colors are just the right base to build on. A tufted, charcoal sofa is next on my list of furniture items — hopefully the mix of the classic sofa and the vintage rug will be what I’m envisioning!

If you’re looking for a vintage kilim rug, eBay and Craigslist are great places to buy. Try searching with the keywords kilim, Moroccan, vintage, Persian, or antique.

P.S. Life’s been hectic and thanks so much for your sweet notes and nudges to get back into blogging! I’ve missed it! There’s so much to catch up on — including a trip to Venice which I can’t wait to share with you. xo
