I’m currently working on a little project (exciting!) to show you all soon! For now, though, I’ll leave you with this photo I took on a recent trip to Paris – it’s the mural from the common room at the Pavillon Suisse, Cité Universitaire, Paris. I love the graphic design of the mural (it’s massive, this is only a small part!) at the bright, mid-century Modern colours:
This wallpaper was actually designed by Elisabeth of Fine Little Day’s 8-year-old son Otto (and produced in collaboration with Swedish company Photowall), and subsequently has been nominated for the Formex Formidable!
I want this.
Can I show you something really gorgeous?
Yeah, that’s it.
This has totally changed my life.
Best. Thing. Ever.
So this is the beautiful work of Ann Marie at Age Old Tree, who took a 1922 edition of Les Mis that she bought for $6 and turned a humble corner of her home into a fantastically romantic statement. I know, I know – tearing up an antique book is a pretty scary thing to start doing, but just look at how successfully it has worked out – a little risk and a lot of reward.

How cool are these!
