Mid Century sideboards are one of my things these days. Those high-quality sleek, minimal cupboards made of precious woods like walnut, rosewood or teak are not only aesthetic to the eye, but so handy and practical as well. Great for creating a vignette of your current favourite things, practical for storing your mess out of sight.

Brass Decor

Bbrass decor is the logical follow-up on yesterday’s post about the Color of the Month: Aubergine. As I already mentioned there, the combination brass or gold and aubergine is just great. The color and the material both have a “royal” vibe, adding instant class to your Autumn interior.

Aubergine Interiors

Aaubergine interiors feel just right for this time of year. Summer is definitely over and we find ourselves in the middle of the Indian Summer (did you know this name comes from the fact that in the olden days this was the time when the native Indians reaped in their harvest?).

Lee Broom

Lee Broom is one designer that cannot be omitted from my Designer Star list (although still short, but soon to be expanded). He is one of the UK’s leading product and interior-designers. Cool and glamorous, his designs are considered to be to furniture what Marc Jacobs or Tom Ford are to fashion. In fact, Broom has a background in fashion, with a degree in fashion design from Central St Martin college in London.

Ooutdoor dining is one of my favourite things to do. And since it’s my birthday today, that is exactly what I will do! I love those long, boozy al fresco lunches or dinners, right in the middle of nature on a warm summer’s day. Lots of strings with lightbulbs in the trees, abundant candlelight on the table, add some flowers, throw in some pillows and you’re good to go.

Ggreen plants and flowers are great accents in any interior, wheather it’s sleek minimal, modern rustic or abundantly chic. Because we all love nature, don’t we? And with plants we bring some of that nature back into our homes. But there are so many plant species, which should we choose? Well, in general I prefer green-only plants, with interesting leaves, maybe mixed with a bit of off-white delicate flowers.

Aan outdoor fireplace is such a great thing for little pyromaniacs such as yours truly. I love building big fires, a thing I indulged in a lot when I was still living in South Africa. Although we did have central floorheating in the house, I preferred to wake up the house by building a fire first thing in the morning.

Tthe Acapulco chair (also known as the Cancun chair of the Lebasa chair) has been a clear example of traditional Mexican design for years and has been around since the 1950’s. It originates from Acapulco in Mexico, the jet-set beach resort and “place to be” for the rich and famous during the 1950’s and 60’s such as Richard Burton, Liz Taylor and Elvis Presley.
