Morning guys. I am back and ready to share some Monday morning beauty with you. Sorry about my absence last Monday morning. We had a public holiday here in South-Africa and hubby and I spent the whole day building a bookcase. You can read all about our bookcase misadventure here and here.  But today I would love to share a great discovery I made recently. I was browsing around for Pigeon hole bookcases ideas, when I stumbled across a house tour of Brooke Shield’s New York townhouse. Boy, is it a stunner!

What I loved most about this space, is the way she paired a very classical décor style with quirky, personal pieces. Like this Keith Haring heart above the mantel and the trilogy of bunnies by Hunt Slonem, below.

Here she displays layers upon layers of gorgeous photographs taken by some of the leaders in the industry- including images by Robert Mapplethorpe and Annie Leibovitz, propped alongside works by Richard Avedon and Adam Fuss. What a lucky lady indeed to have such great works in her home .I adore that this space looks effortlessly pulled together yet is so perfectly styled.

I love when ‘real’ art is used in an usual space like a kitchen. It adds a personal touch to an other wise functional space, making it more of a living space.

In this master bedroom, the Anglo-Indian tester bed, block-printed linens and Edwardian oil portrait makes for an interesting ensemble.

But my favourite is her Victorian style bathroom. I definitely want to copy those gorgeous drapes framing the bath. What do you think of her townhouse? Is it what you would expect? I was quite surprised.

Have a lovely Monday,
