On a Sunday stroll on Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn, I stumbled upon a small carpet and kilim shop. Kea is a fabulous little shop that sells rugs from all over the world. Susan, I believe the owner, was educating me on the meaning and back-story of each rug. Kilims hung on the wall like art and She was absolutely lovely. Very cool place!
Worth checking out!

Dirty or dusty pink it’s all the same. Weathered and wonderful, dirty pink is like the real version of it’s self. The un-perfect the soft and slightly damaged.

Jean-Louis Deniot apartment in 7th arrondissement with Paris, France is stunning. The designer explains in a recent issue of Elle Decor how he takes historical elements and applies them in a very current fashion.
Deniot has a love for neoclassicism and a knack for taking historical references and updating them in a sophisticated way. “Many people think you can create an effect through a form of provocation,” he explains, “by juxtaposing something very classical with something very contemporary. For me, things should be a lot more subtle.” A perfect example is the delicate trompe-l’oeil sky in the living room, which resembles those you find on the ceilings of European palaces. Deniot gave it his own twist by using it on the walls too.- Elle Decor
