When it comes to interiors, I have a few soft spots: plants, ceramics, wooden objects, home textiles. I love to have a variety of those at home to change and recreate my habitat. I am particularly drawn to objects that are handmade – I admire the little imperfections that make it perfect in my opinion. But I digress.
