Livingetc, March 2011

I spent Saturday morning sat in my favourite stripy chair by our balcony windows, leafing through the March issue of Livingetc whilst gallantly working my way through a pot of Nutella.Β Despite knowing the temperature was barely above freezing, the sunshine and clear skies outside the window reminded that spring is on the horizon – as did the magazine in my hands. A quirky British style takes over in the Brooklyn brownstone that features as House of the Month (2, 3) and the Totally Tudor feature (4, 5) had my heart skipping at a zillion beats a minute – isn’t that bedroom divine? My affections were soon to be shared as I fell upon the industrial dining space inside Karine and Rodolphe’s late 19th century Marseille-based home. Two knockout kitchens detailing preppy blues and greens round off my top picks from this subtly spring-like issue. Which tears do you like?

    There is nothing I do not like, but the first six are really me in their own ways!
    I am not in love with the last image!

    I love the quirkiness of this house, especially the dining room wall – with the map! love the paper whites flowers on that dining table.. i just happened to pick up some yesterday too and they look so pretty and smell sooo good right now!

    I love the first and second tears… the first one for the Ralph Lauren Adirondack blue wall paint color and both of them for their seemingly-effortless arrangement of photographs, art and knick knacks.

    Beautifully done! Such pictures along with a pot of nutella would make my cold day warm too πŸ™‚
