Have I ever told you that the rooms I love decorating the most are… kids rooms? Well, there, I said it (again!) There is something so whimsical and fun about children rooms that appeals to every one of my senses. Rules do not apply to these shabby tots and yet an underlying current of a story needs to be told in their room.
This room in the house of Naomi Davis from Rockstar Diaries, is a perfect example of the carefree approach to decorating a nursery. A healthy mix of vintage and contemporary, vibrant touches of colour, and evolutive furniture that will grow with the child even if a few coats of fresh paint might be needed down the road.

You know how I L.O.V.E. a good meeting of great minds into what often becomes an instant iconic space or collection. This year, Vogue Paris’ pop-up Hugo & Victor patisserie in the atrium of retailer Printemps Hausmann stole the Fashion Week’s pre-show with its pretty in pink panelled walls, 1970′s brass and chrome pieces, and Vogue cover prints from the past. Closed on March 22nd, this little foodie meets fashion lover haven became an instant hit. Some things ought to become permanent in my books, don’t you agree?
If you happen to be in the vicinity of the French capital, visit the atrium at the Printemps as their latest collaboration, with Vitra this time, is to be seen.
