Yesterday evening I attended my French conversation course at the Institut Français. I was asked to prepare a little oral presentation for my fellow students, and I picked my blog and the topic of social media. So, I told my francophile friends about the happiness that dwells in a personal and beautifully designed home. And today’s room conveys exactly that idea with just a little nook of the entire home. It is a peek into the laid-back yet impeccably stylish and personal home of the blogger and interior designer simply named Jake. I stumbled over these pics while reading the blog of one of my favorite West coasters, Dabito, and he is the artist who shot the pic. But why did this catch my eye?
- Long Arm Chandelier: This chandelier from West Elm is a little masterpiece. It looks like a mid-century design classic with a modern twist and its shiny surface and floating appearance add an airy lightness to it.
- Personal Gallery Wall: The personal collection of illustrations, photographies and tearsheets creates a focal point, attains interest and makes for a nice chat while seated on the table.
- Bright Wood: The use of bright wood as a tabletop as well as framings pulls the design together as does the black colour of the chandelier and the chairs. A visual treat!
