My very own personal neon sign was a gift from Alex for my 30th birthday. He went through hoops to get it made as there are only a few people making neon signs in France, but if you’re interested in having something similar, this Etsy shop has some fun ones.
You can see the table where I write all of my articles a little bit better here. It was the old kitchen table in my childhood family home in southern France. I added some retro travel stickers by Laughing Elephant that I picked up from the Merci concept store here in Paris to give it a touch of “messy”. The Robin Day style polypropylene stacking chairs were a good bargain from La Redoute.
The cushions on the IKEA day bed where I occasionally crash after an all-nighter, all came from the wonderfully afforable H&M home (yes, they have a Home department online and it’s brilliant). The Nordic striped curtain is actually a shower curtain I got from Society6– I think it does the job all the same and if I ever have a ceiling leak it should come in very handy! Oh, and the atelier mirror was a bit of a splurge from Maison du Monde.
In case you’re wondering what to do with your leftover liquor bottles that are too pretty to throw away, stick some rosemary in there and you’ve got a rather attractive addition to your shelves (↑ on the right).
You might recognise this little number from my DIY Christmas gift guide. Yes, I do actually take my own advice and gifted myself with a “Chanel No5” flower pot. I’m terrible at remembering to water flowers so I found some very good fake ones from Maison du Monde and the vase is actually a plastic one that my local florist was using for her window displays, but no one can tell! You can download the high resolution perfume sticker here. Fake it ’til you make it!
