L’Objet desk accessories

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

l-Objet-Pyramid-Skull-Desk-Collection

Right, fantasy desk accessory time. I’m totally going to start arranging vintage stamps , malachite candle holders and (faux) coral-handled magnifying glasses on my shabby chic desk like an eccentric professor. These rather refined goodies are from L’Objet, the home decor brand by Elad Yifrach. The former interior designer launched his Mediterranean-inspired luxury tabletop and accessories line nine years ago, with Bergdorf Goodman as his first client. Continue reading

Interiors-Martyn-Thompson 10

After my trip to the Saatchi for the Hermes Festival Des Metiers press preview, I nipped into Anthropologie for a quick browse. That’s a lie of course. There’s nothing quick about an ‘Anthro’ browse. I was there for the best part of an hour, upending every cup and plate and inspecting every book. Continue reading

Elle Decoration visits ‘top bloggers’ at home

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Check this out! I was really chuffed to be asked to be featured in the March issue of Elle Decoration (along with Shini and Fred) talking about design, blogging and homesy things. I nearly turned it down as I don’t really like having to tidy up my crap pose for photos but … Elle Deco, people!!! And  lovely Tara Darby did a great job with the pictures, while Talib Choudhry did well to to edit my ramblings into something coherent. Also, gotta love the fact that Fred, Shini and I all included Susie Bubble (AKA the patron saint of UK fashion blogging – ha!) in our top three must-read blogs.

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Playing with my books is my favourite way of whiling away the post-Christmas days. I don’t buy as many interiors books as photography books these days, but if you’re looking for thrifty styling inspiration, then I’d recommend this one.

Sarah Bagner is a non-stop creative juggernaut. Her Supermarket Sarah walls are a stroke of genius retailing – super-styled walls that are instantly shoppable, curated with a themed mix of craft works, vintage finds and emerging designer pieces. Continue reading

Are magazines still relevant? Paradis, Apartamento, Modern Matter

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

More than ever I’m finding that the magazines I read (as opposed to buying, then placing untouched in a pile for two months) are those with a unique or personal point of view. Possibly an influence from the blog phenomenon, it feels like these mags have more to say and are therefore savoured, returned to and kept. Three I’m liking at the moment: Continue reading

Shop report: Hermes Paris flagship

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Part of my recent trip to Paris with Hermes involved a visit to the new(ish) flagship store. Situated in a former 1930s swimming pool, it felt tres strange to be standing on the floor of the pool surrounded by original tiles! The store is vast and includes a cafe, a florist, a bookshop and lots of home wares. Continue reading

Diane Von Furstenburg’s Manhattan penthouse

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Just when you thought Diane von Furstenberg (so impressed I can spell that without looking it up) couldn’t get any more fabulous, her Manhattan penthouse appears in Architectural Digest. And suddenly I want a wooden bathtub, animal-print carpet and a table in the shape of a tree. Cue a Pinterest frenzy…
