Inspiration: The Perfect Place For Me.

Hello Lovelies, Remember that in a previous post today I said: "I just found out yesterday about a gorgeous home that is exactly the same size as my new apartment (YES! I have moved). It is real perfection. IMHO. I promise I will post pictures and info about it in my next blog post." I gotta run now, but here is a little preview:   This is Muriel Cibot's living-room, as of 2011 - as published here, among other photos of her place.   Check out her custom-made shelving for books and decor accessories!
