How satisfying would it be to be able to create something incredible using whatever material you just happened to pick up? Aurore de la Morinerie can and I’m very jealous. Here’s the evidence…..
I’m not entirely sure where these images originate from but I got them from interior junkie. However since it’s written in dutch I’m still none the wiser. The graphic prints and practical living all spells Scandinavian living but I could be wrong. Either way…love it!
I’ve been feeling so guilty of late from my lack of posting, so I was delighted when I found Ivy Jacobsen’s paintings on Pinterest, they are so beautiful they just have to be shared.

In fact, so much so, that my kitchen table is now littered with clippings, print outs, magazines and books. I don’t think I’m in the domestic good books right now!
