The Lady and The Citroen

Meet Sonia Delaunay – artist, designer, wife, mother & my inspiration for today.

“In the wake of the Russian Revolution, Delaunay-Terk lost her family allowance. To earn a living, she designed colorful fabrics, tapestries and carpets. Besides collaborating memorably with couturiers Coco Chanel, Jeanne Lanvin and Jacques Heim, she made clothing for the wives of architects Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Erich Mendelsohn. She even decorated a Citroen B12.”

Read about her story here.

The French House at Parsons Green

The French House London

This morning I made my way to the flower market then stopped to pick up a coffee and the papers.

It was the first time since we’ve been back that I’ve done it and it reminded me of the simple Saturday morning routine that I started in London. The only thing missing was a visit to The French House – a beautiful antique store under Parsons Green tube line with the most gorgeous things.

4 Books On My Shelf

Well, two are on my bookshelf the other two are on my bookshelf wishlist.

I was browsing Mary Ryan’s and picked up The Perfectly Imperfect Home by Deborah Needleman the founding editor of Domino – the U.S. shelter mag I’ve heard so much about. The second one is Shannon Fricke’s new book How to Decorate. I’d been dreaming of attending one of her workshops so when I saw that this is basically the workshop in book form I thought I’d settle for the next best thing. Can’t wait to get stuck into them!

I’ve got no idea how I came across the third one (A Year’s Worth), could have been a link from this lovely blog (via Emmy & Mouse), but I love that its the recipes and story from a small New Zealand produce shop. The fourth (Kitchen & Co) is by two girls who started a supper club in London and went on to create a tiny restaurant in Brixton markets. I love their simple approach to seasonal food.

I’m loving having bookshelves again! I resisted buying books while we were in London knowing it was always temporary so am very happy to start building my library now.

What home/food books do you love?

Antlers Poster by Debbie Carlos

Seem to be obsessed with large scale black and white nature themed prints.

Can you blame me? I just ordered this print from Debbie Carlos. I love it. A lot.

Amy Neunsinger’s House

I love the feel of this home.

I’m supposed to be writing issue 6 of my newsletter right now but I was browsing here and a picture of photographer Amy Neunsinger’s dining room popped up.

I had to find more! Isn’t this house beautiful? Lots of inspiration for our apartment. Full tour here.

Floor Lamp Battle

Happy Monday! I know I’ve been quiet around here. The truth? I’ve found settling back into life in Brisbane hard. I haven’t been in the most sunny frame of mind – so I didn’t want to get on here and be a sad sack.

We’re back in our apartment now though so I’ve been able to focus on something else I love – interiors! I’ve been a frequent visitor to my local lighting shops and absolutely cannot make up my mind about these two beautiful floor lamps.

It’s a battle – which would you choose?
