here are some of my (many) eternal interior dreams.
1 a chalkboard wall
i would love to have a chalkboard wall, i.e. a wall painted with charcoal black chalkboard paint. so i could paint, scribble and write on it, everyday something new, according to my liking. like recipes, menues, wishlists, love vows or simply greetings. i know, painting walls dark black is not very reasonable in a rented flat. but ugh! why are we always so shouldn't/couldn't/wouldn't-y?
2 a vintage couch (preferably in old linen)
my parents have a really nice old couch in their cellar (!), that is waiting for me to come and get it. unfortunately, it really needs a new fabric first (the blue flowery print i chose when i was about 7 or 8 is neither fashionable nor accurate anymore). i would love to upholster the couch with a grey or black plain fabric with a vintage feel, something like a worn-out linen. i love linen for furniture, particularly in grey. it's something so nonchalantly luxurious.
3 chalet chic elements
i love chalet chic, i practically grew up with chalet chic. my mom is the unbeaten expert at everything around chalet styles. so i've pulled together a list of favorites over the years. here's the essentials i am working on getting, myself. i've already got a cow fur rug in brown (not as good as a bear or something with the head on, though). and a pretty crystal chandelier with deer heads is on its way.... yay!
4 shabby chic decor
and to complete the look, a few thrift or simply shabby chic items, like a travel suitcase, vintage bookshelf, books, telephone or globes. and something i absolutely must have one day: the vivienne westwood flag cushion (or even better: the rug from the rug company).
when i start to dream i get carried away much too easily... hope you enjoyed the post. i'll make sure to come back and add to my (already massive) home wish list.
