She’s Australian. He’s French. Their little planet of an appartment in Paris’s Batignolles neighborhood is filled with inspiration from everything in between.
I just love Olivia and her beau’s little nest. It’s always warm and cozy and filled with good vibes. As I am a huge trinket and things fan, I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos to share here with you guys on the blog for some inspiration.
O & J love traveling, and their place reflects this so precisely with trinkets and this & that’s from Asia as well as textiles from trips to Istanbul and India. They mix this style oh so perfectly with modern textiles: it’s the perfect fusion. It’s got an ethnic spunk with the perfect mix of modern Western.
One of Olivia’s biggest passions is tea, and she’s got probably around 40 different teas from all over the world in canisters that sit on her shelf. As she’s a T2 alumni, faites attention, she knows her tea.
From what I can tell, Olivia and I have a similar obsession with framing things. She’s got a corner filled with frames. The various sizes of words and moments are framed on the walls and constantly remind everyone of the beauty in the world.
She mentioned she will be featuring this in the near future on her blog, so stay tuned.
Who knew that by adding a bit of ginger, cardamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, orange peel & cinnamon would be the perfect addition to coffee when using a moka pot?! I had no idea, and now I want to make it all the time because it was so delicious.
It’s important to love where you live and feel truly at home when you are in the space you’ve deemed as your own. I am always so interested in the spaces people surround themselves in. You can tell a lot about a person by their things. A lot of my obsessions I inherited from my mother.
It’s like when you see something that reminds you of someone and you’re like, “Oh my gosh, that is SO so-and-so!”. What is it that makes us think of that person? What is it that makes us think that a certain thing or style or idea is like someone we know or think we know? Or that that person would like this thing in question? I personally like that. It makes me feel like I understand someone a bit better, and notice the little things that make them, well, them.
A special thank you to O & J for letting me snap some shots in your adorable nest.
I think this type of post could become a regular thing on here. What do you think?
