I have been a bit interior-decor obsessed lately, as I have been redoing my flat. We have been living in a building site with dust everywhere! Coco managed to lean against a freshly painted white wall: the result was a white line all down her back from her hair to her jeans, just like a skunk. But, slowly, the result is showing: pulling up the old carpet has revealed a beautiful oak parquet and I have spent several evenings obsessing over the different shades of grey Farrow and Ball paints have to offer. There are worse things to do in life. (On a side note: it has been a very different cultural experience having builders in between France and the UK. In France, the builders were totally nonplussed by my offer of tea and biscuits — I was almost offended!).
Now that the perfect grey has been chosen, the next project is the girls’ room. I have been thinking of putting up wallpaper on at least some of the walls! How lovely is this Famille Summerbelle wallpaper? It is appropriately called: Un dimanche à Paris (A Sunday in Paris). Is it a bit exagerated to have a Paris-themed wallpaper when you live in Paris? I am not sure!
