More eclectic nests from Milk Deco

These photos are from the Gramercy Park, New York City home of Carin van der Donk, owner of Sons and Daughters a now-closed East Village shop.
**About that interesting ceiling chandelier in the first photo- it is a special order from Lindsey Adelman using hand-blown bulbs. If you like that, you simply must check out her work here. Her lights are amazing!

These four photos are from the home of Laurence Gautier and Gabrielle Soyer, in a suburb of Paris. They fill their house with souvenirs from their flea markes and antique store hunts. The article says the house is just not big enough to hold all their finds! Hmmm, I know how that feels, although my house is much smaller.

This set of five photos above is from a French visual artist's home in Tangier. Yto Barrada grew up in Tangier and says she has her grandmother's sense of style in that she loves "antique flowers and lace, collecting dresses and fabrics, accumulating and juxtaposing."
And I thought this little old-fashioned sleeper couch was interesting. The photos was from a home in Utrecht. (all photos from Milk Deco Issue No.3, Oct. 2009)

I love the contrast of the dark painting on a white wall above a white fire place. Very dramatic and elegant.

Found my way here via the lovely Nelya (Head over Heels). I can understand that she said "be prepared to drool"! I feel at home here!

+ some of your images convinced me that a gigantic world map is a must for my little Prince's bedroom.

Thank you all for your comments!

Splendid Willow: Glad to know how you found me. What a sweet compliment. I am so glad if my blog makes anyone feel at home.

Amber: I'm not sure where to find Milk Deco in the U.S. but in London I find it at a local newsagent shop that happens to carry some French magazines. If you're in the U.S. I'd try Barnes & Noble- mine in NYC used to have Milk magazine. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Lilouka: Merci! Votre blog m'a fourni beaucoup d'inspiration!
