like a kid in a candy shop
I always forget how awesome the Marie Claire Maison website is for a glimpse into spaces that have the kind of European grandeur we rarely see in New York. (Or at least in Brooklyn) It's a blend of elegant minimalism with hints of drama and whimsy. Take this living room, for example. The stark white walls and ceiling blend into each other while the small patterns mingle with basically every color under the sun. I love the light pink beadboard and the floral floor cushion and pouffe on top of the floral rug. If I were ever going to have children, this is basically what my house would look like. Except they wouldn't be allowed to touch anything. Or sit on anything. Or come in this particular room at any point. At least until they are 15 and don't run the risk of spilling any Tang or anything.
But yeah, love this room! Vivat Marie Claire Maison!
