Lanvin Cruise 2014

Lanvin's Cruise 2014 campaign shots are dark and dramatic featuring a tattooed and barely made-up model - something a little different for the glamorous French brand. I also love the pretty little girls' dresses.

A family home in Brussels

This family home in Brussels was transformed by Label Architecture in 2008.  I love the dramatic use of contrast - black against white, old against new, smooth and shiny surfaces against matte and rough surfaces.

Saint Laurent Cruise 2014

Here's a little something more from Saint Laurent before I say goodnight.  These pieces and looks from the Cruise 2014 collection are divine.  I especially love the logo bracelet in the fifth image below.

Saint Laurent Paris

The Saint Laurent brand epitomises a luxuriously classic style.  The retail space pictured below is to die for... concrete floors and gallery white walls combined with banks of mirrors and black and white marble surfaces.  It is the perfect blank canvas for accessories in luxurious leather, suede and silk.

ASTACK candleholders

I brought these three little stackable candle holders home with me today.  They're called ASTACK and are made in Denmark by Helgo.  I love this colour combo.

I finally updated my 'About Me' page

Well that's been on my 'to do' list for a while.

Check it out here.

My dream dining chairs and a new table

My parents are buying us a set of my dream dining chairs as a wedding present - the No. 18 Thonet chair in a dark oak finish with classic embossed seats, similar to those pictured below.

Now I'm after a simple, but stylish white dining table at an affordable price to pair with them. I think my best option is the INGATORP extendable table from IKEA, pictured below. I love its classic lines and unextended it is the perfect size to fit my four Thonet chairs.

Our wedding: a sneak peek

Harry and I were married a little over a week ago on Sunday, 16 June 2013 (our 15-year anniversary as a couple). The weather played nice, despite predictions saying otherwise, and we had the most amazing day.

We will receive the official photos in five weeks, but we already have some lovely images taken by our family. Here's a sneak peek...

...and a close-up of my beautiful cala lilly bouquet.

A stunning little apartment in Poland

I love everything about this tiny 29sqm apartment in Wroclaw, Poland.  The redesign by 3XA is smart and super stylish.
