Milk Deco favorites







I really like peeking inside real homes that aren't completely styled perfectly- which meant I was thrilled when I discovered Milk Deco last year. (From Milk Magazine, the French childrens' style magazine). Not that thought, preparation and cleaning up didn't happen before these shots were taken, but these photos still manage to capture a sense that you're seeing real homes in which families, which children, live. All the furniture doesn't match, and everything you see couldn't have been bought in a day. Love the cute, quirky styles, especially in childrens' rooms. These photos are from a few different homes, so they aren't all from one series. (From Milk Deco Issue 2, Nov . 2008)

Oh I completely agree with you. All this fabulous mix matching makes me so happy. Creates such nice tension between the items and makes for much more interesting homes than those that are styled to perfection!

Lovely picks!

Came here via Purple Area. LOVE that first image! Mixing old with new is so my style and then to add something unexpected at the end - Bingo! The different colored seats make me want to tackle my own dining chairs. Thank you for giving me a weekend project! Cheers from Seattle! Monika

Here in the States and wish I knew how to get lovely and reasonably priced dining chairs from here to you in UK. Quite a dilemma.
