Coveting…

I have loved reading about all of your takes on your ‘style’ and the elements you love that make it work for you. I am still really trying to define my own style and thought I would show you some beautiful things I am coveting for our home (these are Birthday hints Mic!!).

The top 2 photos are by a wonderful Etsy Photographer Kariherer, who’s images of Paris and France are amazing. Little snippets of life I like to call them. I especially love the flower range.

Another Etsy (actually all of this post is from Etsy Shops) Photographer I am loving is Snappy Chic. Her images of France, Eiffel Tower etc are mostly black and white and have that timeless quality to them that it seems we are all coveting.

As some of you know I have a thing for rings, the bigger and chunkier the better. This one from MS Pottery is a divine example. Made of ceramic, gorgeous colour and adjustable too. This is high on my list.
This photo is so pretty. It is by Peonies and Polaroids. There are many more with the same sort of beautiful feel to them…I want them all!! I can imagine this…HUGE as a focal on a wall. It would be lovely in a bathroom, over looking a white claw foot, surrounded by white fluffy towels in big weathered grey trough-style urns. =)

I have had these saved for ages. Recycled glass is Yava Glass’ main thing. They have all sorts of funky and stylish glass ware, like old soda bottles and lots of famous brand pieces…all flame cut and polished. What a beautiful set these are.

Now, I am LOVING this range of antique, hand woven hemp linen, feather/down filled cushions from Ludwigaslinen. All of the linen featured on this shop is between 80 and 130 years old. You even get a little bit of history about this linen in each listing. Did you know it would take a weaver 4 to 6 hours to weave just 60 cm!! and by candlelight!!!! The rest of the range is just a stunning and the little monogram pillow is a fave too.

This is so cool. A plaid laptop bag that is padded and lined and with a zip from Track and Field Designs. I adore the bike image on the front. This would be great for a guy or a girl. If they don’t have the size you need…they will make it for you at no extra charge!!

These little 4 x 4 inch wood mounted photo collages by Stiletto Heights are beautiful. They come ready to hang and have a lovely patina to them. They have been made using pastels, photos, acrylic paints and ephemera. They are listed as being “Perfect for any Paris Apartment themed room, bedroom, office or studio”.

You would definitely have to have a few to get a wonderful effect like this.

So, I have decided that I don’t want to be pigeon-holed into a particular style. I want it to be something that evolves around our family, our home, our life, our loves…and a little of that Modern Rustic thing. If you love it, it’ll work!

  • I’ve never been to Paris, but am completely immersed in it at the moment because I’m reading a book by an Aussie journalist about her year living there. Can’t wait to go there for real one day.

  • Ness, the anemones and the ranunculas are just hitting the markets now – I love them especially the white and greeny anemones. Don’t you love the way they are not mixed bunches but single colours? xv

  • Just love those two flowers! That’s what I miss most about living in Paris – the flowers!

  • Vicki,
    Yes…I love that they are just a single colour. I think that is what drew me to those photos. I like simple arrangements that feature one kind of flower.

  • Gina,
    I could have a house filled with things covered in those hemp/burlap fabrics. At least you know they will stand the test of time.

  • I feel the same way! I don’t want to be pigeon-holed either, thats why if I am asked what my house looks like it’s eclectic.. when I see something that makes me stop and drool… it’s hard to stop myself! Your pictures are “all so Lovely” If I could I would have hemp linen pillows everywhere… oh luxuary!

  • I love the etched glasses and Oh those flower photos (from all three sources!) are gorgeous! The ranunculas are one of my favorites, and the colors are beyond words. We have ranuculas flower fields here that have a windmill nearby and overlook the sea, and while it’s very contrived how they plant them (in rows of colors) you can buy them at the bottom of the hill in any combination you choose.

    I think you style needs no name, it’s just simply gorgeous.

  • Oohh I love those laptop bags. What a great idea. I have 2 laptops and are constantly carrying to and from work! How stylish. I love that ring too, I have a black one similar that I wear everyday. The bigger the better – I agree with you!
