Lovely Monday: Vosges Paris
While I am in The Netherlands (I’m heading home tomorrow), it seems appropriate to highlight a Dutch interior design blog. Vosges Paris truly is one of my favorite blogs around, because every post written by Desiree is a treat.
One of my all time favorite posts on her blog is about The Master Plan that Desiree keeps in the back of her head for her house and slowly works toward. It’s always so fun to get a peek into someone’s creative process especially if you really enjoy their work and find yourself wondering: How do they do it? And how did they think of that?
She favors black, white and gray and uses it to great effect:
Lately, she has been playing around with a living mood board. How beautiful is this?
She has a beautiful concrete wall in her living room. It used to be covered in wallpaper, but after discovering the concrete wall when removing the wallpaper, she’s kept it for the industrial vibe it adds.
This is what she did with it for Christmas. She designed the Merry Christmas print herself, inspired by and Ikea print.
One of my all time favorite images on her blog is this one. I think it’s so perfect in its simplicity and I love the black, white, gray and lavender palette. She’s since changed here bedroom around – as one does – and it looks great now too. One thing that I love, that has remained unchanged, is the bedside table. For someone who likes to keep a lot beside their bed (like me, and, um, usually it’s piled up on the floor) this is a perfect solution.
Last year, before I went to Amsterdam, I sent Desiree an e-mail because she lives in Amsterdam and I asked her what her favorite spots are to shop for home decor. She was kind enough to send me a list. I wrote down the list and walked part of the route that she’d described in there and went places that I definitely wouldn’t have thought of otherwise even though I grew up there! One of the places I went to was the Noordermarkt, a market mostly known for antiques, vintage home decor and fabrics. This morning, I went again and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ll post about some highlights of my Dutch trip later this week!
