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.

Everyone has a wish list for their dream home filled with “must-have” items. In this series, I’ll fill you in on my own “must-have” items – and hopefully show you that in some cases they’re more attainable than you think! - Gabrielle, Savvy Home
This is going to sound a little absurd, but people are often at a loss when it comes to decorating large sized bedrooms. This often results in lots of empty space. Not all bedrooms are large enough to accommodate two full-sized chest of drawers as bedside tables, so if you’re among a few of the lucky ones that can indulge in this luxury, I urge you to try it.
First of all, think of all the storage possibilities. It also looks very chic and holds its weight: much better than a dresser lost on a wall too big for it. It leaves space in the room for other things: a bench at the foot of the bed or even better a small sitting area or chaise lounge. Are you convinced?
