How come European/Scandinavian design is so beautiful?
I have totally fallen in love with Jeanne Darc Living, especially this coffee table. The whole site is stunning with all things white, dreamy and very well put together. Could you imagine this room filled with candlelight? Iron grilles on the windows are a nice touch too, instead of fussy window treatments, and my favourite...white floors!
A statement for an office. Beautiful, whimsical pieces abound here, like the #9 (which I may have to get), gorgeous lamp and statue. The white table is similar to my own office table (although I just scrapped all the white paint off the top).
On closer inspection here, you can see the detail on the shelf, with its little hooks and the ever-so lovely whitewash effect. That lamp is really, really nice. I quite like the letter rack, too!
Oh, my. Day beds and small iron cots are totally in my head at the moment. We are working on one at the moment for a display piece for the shop, not as lovely as this one though. I always think it doesn't matter how old or mismatched anything is, it always comes together with white, paint or linen, and a hint of green works too.
This shoe cupboard is divine..too nice for shoes, definitely a linen or a dining cupboard for me. Beautiful on its own, but add a rustic garden trug, small vase of greenery, white ironstone and finish it off with a vintage-looking wreath and you have a Nordic looking display for your favourite corner....mmmm enjoy. xx


  1. I love these rooms. The coffee table is fantastic (OK I may be biased as I have an almost identical one!) and the iron bed is to die for. Still trying to persuade my hubby that such a bed is a necessary purchase!

  2. Yes it is hard to get the Husband to see what we vision!! Good luck.

  3. Wish we had Jd'A here!

  4. I agree totally Millie. We don't have any of the really good design houses here.
