Our sunroom has been many things over the last many years.
Orangerie. (Dang I love that word.)
It’s latest phase is Parisienne Farmgirl Magazine Headquarters!
I am typically very reluctant to incorporate pink into my downstairs floor scheme but I decided to step out of the box and bring down some pretties from my bedroom. I must say, it’s rather fun against the soft gray walls and of course, my favorite thing in the entire house, the black and white painted floor.
This magazine is taking off like crazy and I am working every spare moment after the kids are down for the night and so I needed a desk – asap. We grabbed two “horses” from the garage, ran to home depot for a wooden door and a drop cloth and came up with a nice space for me to display just a handful of the coffee table books that inspire me, my favorite bread tin/cabinet, the Ladurée box that has never really found a home etc…
Here’s a little glimpse…
A sweet little favor from Jo Packham (Editor of Where Women Cook) commemorating my 15 minutes. (See sidebar).
Busted doorknob I can’t bare to part with, Veuve bucket, Vénus de Milo and some of my favorite books for inspiration.
Yes, that’s Chanel and Laura Ingalls side by side.
Very Parisienne Farmgirl.
That purple Provence Style book is one of the BEST EVER!
Snaps from a family cram into a photo booth.
Pink Jasmine Hydrangea dried from the Potager and simply one of my most favorite pieces of furniture – my tin bread cabinet from a bakery in Minniapolis. SO COOL!
I want to fill that big frame with some recent photos of the kids but for now it’s part of my “Gigi’s” collection.
Not quite nouveau.
But let’s imagine you want to see it in person?
Can you say – “Launch Party?”
