Simple Pleasures

Cabinet of Curiosities

The 17th century home of stylist Marthe Desmoulins and her partner is a modern interpretation of the cabinets of curiosity that were in vogue at that time, with nature as the main theme throughout their home — walls are alive with flowery wallpaper, organically shaped lighting and furniture (much of it sourced from flea markets) appears in each room as though it grew there, a bedspread has a design inspired by tree trunks, and natural pigments set off images of insects and animals. A fascinating home, it must be instinctive, too — Marthe's grandfather was a professional gardener. More details (in French) here. Via Marie Claire Maison.


Just don't give up on trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.
