Pure Moss x

‘Picture a summer night when it goes silvery-blue from the light of the moon’ Is how Kate Moss describes the inspiration behind the wallpaper for her bathroom.

Based on silver-tinted anemones symbolising luck in Greek mythology and interspersed with shards of solar radiance, the wallpaper is the creative result of a collaboration between Moss and De Gournay, the bespoke wallpaper house.

The hall is now proudly adorned with the daybreak version. ‘I like the feeling of when the sun is just coming up at a festival and you have that glowy light.’ It’s all pale pastels and bright, in your face neons.

 

A match made in heaven.

Floored..

I was clicking through Architectural Digest (as you do) when I alighted on this photo of Jessica Chastain’s New York apartment.  It wasn’t so much the design that caught my eye or the pretty cornflower blue – or even the impressive array of copper in the cupboards, but the cork floor tiles.

A fallen high achiever, cork tiles now equate with seventies bad taste and sticky beer after raucous student parties.  And yet there’s something about them – a warmth and sense of forgiveness blended with a subtle hint of nostalgia..

This Blogger had a kitchen laid with them last year and she’s written a follow up post on how she’s feels about them a year on.  It makes interesting reading.

Maybe, as with all things seventies, it’s time for a revival..

When writing a post for this Blog, sometimes it’s planned – more often than not, it’s spontaneous and every now and then it’s fate.  This is a fate post – with a long list of things to do this morning, none of which I’ve managed to get done, I came to my keyboard late wondering what on earth I would write.  Then I opened up Heather Clawson’s post of the day from Habitually Chic and need, love and fate all collided.  Heather had posted pictures of a stunning house in Spetses from an article in Architects Digest which is telling as it was only last week we were on the island.  What makes it more poignant is that today is my parents 49th wedding anniversary and they are still out there…and there is nothing my mother likes better than a good nose around a house – this is for you mum – Enjoy and happy anniversary!
