jean cocteau is rad

I wrote about Jean Cocteau's Milly-la-Forêt maison a little over a year and a half ago, but when I found these beautiful images I couldn't help but write about it again. Madeline Castaing, one of the premier decorators of the 20th century, assisted with the design. And I'm mad for it. Leopard walls, a tufted canopied bed, art and art supplies everywhere... it's perfect. The horn chair reminds me of a post I wrote for Coveted Home earlier this week (Coveted Home is a super cool boutique and design studio in KC where I now work, though it feels more like play :). Would you ever upholster your walls in an animal print? I totally would. Especially if I could do it in this Scalamandre number! Dream big.

apartment update

Thank you to everyone who emailed and commented on my last post! A reader suggested Benjamin Moore's Queen Anne Pink, and it was exactly what I was looking for. I'm very happy with the way my walls turned out -- grown up, but still feminine (thank you Abigail!!).

After my saintly little brother helped me paint last weekend, I (naturally) went on a bit of craigslist shopping spree. Not to brag, but if Craigslist stalking was a sport I'd probably medal in it. I think that's what happens when you're delightfully impoverished yet don't want to live like it. Anywho, I foud those gold leaf brass bamboo coffee tables for $12 a piece, and the clean-lined gold sofa - which needs to be reupholstered - for $100. 

Of course, the room is hardly finished. Above are the items I'd love to buy next. Acquiring things slowly makes me appreciate what I have... but my inner Veruca Salt wants it all NOW! 

Brass Pharmacy Floor Lamp. Bay Leaf Wreath for the front door (which I will probably paint in some way...). Opus 2 by Chad Wys (found through my friend Katie who has the best taste ever). Cheeky Nude Silhouette by Hugo Guinness. Modern White Plastic Chair. Claire Vivier Tassel. Cowhide Rug.
