Bravo Carolina....





I've been in love with Carolina Herrera Jnr's style for a long time now. It is so grand, but at the same time has a lovely earthy quality which makes it modern and fresh. I think that it is the combination of opulent antiques coupled with warm, rusty colours and textured fabrics that creates this unique feeling. And also the sense of casualness that she imbues into every nook and cranny through her use of detailing and things like family photographs. It's a rare combination. And a beautiful one to boot.

I found you through "absolutely beautiful things" blog. I have spent the past hour looking at your fantastic blog I love finding people who has the same taste as your self. I have to have a look at your books!!! Having lived in Melbourne for three and a half years I love the rough Australian style.

All the best from Sweden
