fancy friday

Hurrah for the weekend! Another three-day one for me (smug? Moi? Never), and another trip out to the countryside. It’s a hard life. Do you have any exciting plans? Whilst flicking through the numerous home decor magazines strewn (read: stacked in chronological order) around my flat, one store name pops up time and time again: the French Bedroom Company. Although some of their furniture is a little, what’s the word, flouncy, for my taste, they do have some real gems. Take for example the white nailhead trim chair and the Paris screen… I’m completely smitten. As the cushion so rightly says: LOVE. Oh, and what’s that? A Temperley scented candle? Go on then:

Thandie Newton is the worthy winner of my look of the week, since sometimes you don’t need all the bells and whistles of a Roberto Cavalli or a Matthew Williamson. Sometimes sleek and black is enough. More than enough. Thandie looks so elegant in this one-shoulder Osman dress, with simple gold accessories and shiny hair as the cherry on top. And for my room of the week, well, just look. Even though the lightbulbs must be a b***h to change, it would totally be worth it. The floors! The fireplace! The windows! Good lord, this is what heaven must look like:

I hope you have a perfect weekend whatever you’re doing and wherever you may be…

    I love this first look – I’m trying to decorate my sous-sol in this way and have just ordered a gorgeous grey suede chesterfield settee!
    Bon week-end 🙂

    Thandie always looks beatiful what ever she wears, jealous. Always wanted a house with stairs like that.
