Pure Lushness For A Monday...




Aaaah... could there be a more sublime way to begin the week than with a series of photographs - filled with wallpaper and fabrics from the Thibaut range... I'm completely in love with these patterns and colours - they remind me of days well and truly past - the days of classical design and layered interiors. Or should I say, days well and truly here again! How funny, that it was only a year or two ago when the world of design was obsessed with modernity and clean-lined (often vacuous interiors!) - what a relief that these days we are seeing interiors infused with more love and individuality - where you sense the people living in the space and not just the space itself... What heaven this is - I'm just like a pig in mud...

Not being much of a wallpaper fan, I didn't know about Thibaut. But wow, this is lovely! That first one would be in my dream kitchen.

I so love Thibaut paper and fabric! I've featured them quite a few times because I just adore the vibe and atmosphere they help create.

I am all for prints, too, modern and stark really turns me off. I especially love the matching sofa, it really isn't too much! Lovely!

Lovely indeed. They convey what my dear friend Raina Cox calls 'Grandma Chic' - a touch of the past mixed with fresh contemporary detail.

Gorgeous.

Happy weekend.
