Sunday Sanctuary: The Safe Bet

With herringbone floors, statement lighting and just a few drool-worthy chairs… it’s safe to say this week’s Sanctuary has me weak at the knees. It comes then, as no surprise to learn the mastermind behind the Scandinavian, dream space is Louise Liljencrantz. Carefully curating textures, finishes and furnishings including marble, timber and granite in a neutral colour palette—each […]

Fawn brown marble and hidden shelves

Now you see them…

now you don’t. 

A perfectly streamlined kitchen in a warm shade of marble that gives you the option for shelves above the sink, or not! As someone who has become increasingly indecisive, I’d love this feature. It’s also a nice way to hide in plain sight those things you use and still want to access easily.

Marble Mania

How to incorporate marble pieces into your minimal interior.


A few of my current (silver) favourites. The watch was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend. I never ever wear watches but I absolutely love the simplicity of this one. Now I just need to remind myself to check the time on my watch instead of on my iPhone… I also love the new colour of Chanel’s Limited Edition ‘Intemporel’ nailpolish. From now on you will see me rocking metallic silver nails instead of the usual black.
