Adding The Finshing Touches To Get the Perfect Place: How to create a home.

That chair is good-looking, but probably not very comfortable, though... Two days ago, I gave you a small glimpse at Muriel Cibot's place in Paris. She is a French interior decorator.

Moving Forward

Hello Lovelies! I decided it's time for this blog to move forward and give you more decor porn to look at - just like the example above! I have been cleaning and organizing a lot lately, you can see a few pics here on Flickr, and I'll post about this more at length tomorrow, BUT the result is that I threw away a lot of magazines and kept quite a few of which I mean to tear the best pages "for your eyes only", scan them and post them here, so I can throw away even more mags, but still enjoy the best they have to offer. ...
