A Touch of House Envy

I am always ripping and tearing inspirational moments out of magazines; a color here, a pattern there, a beautiful terrace or enticing living room...They all find there way into a drawer beneath my desk that subliminally says "hope to see you soon". But when I came upon this fabulous London home belonging to Christine D'Ornano I thought, as my 2 year old twins say...."Wooow, I love you"....And, that is kind of how I feel about these rooms, so I couldn't resist sharing.


  1. Lulu adore the living room!! Fabulous!!

    I have a New Giveaway from the French Basketeer I think you will love!

  2. Ha! Love how kids are so sweet and to the point :) these rooms are indeed very intriguing. I am not a fan of the wallpaper on the bedroom, but the carpeting on both is so bold and original. Also love all the little design elements-artwork, flowers, books, pillows. All very colorful. Very nice! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Actually I do like the wallpaper, and the carpet in the living room and the coffee table is quite special, I must say! The painting above the fireplace scares me off .. a tiny! Keep inspiring,

  4. They're lovely. so much character but feel homely (i imagine! ;)) I really like the light too. Great blog! City Girl x

  5. I enjoy seeing rooms come together even when they make use of patterns that should not belong next to one another. Neat!
