Daydreams of a single girl

For various reasons lately, I’ve been daydreaming about moving to Paris for a spell, getting a little studio apartment and soaking up some culture.

Or maybe Berlin.

Or New York.

Or Budapest.

Wherever, a big part of my fantasy is based on the idea of a little apartment to call home. It would be small but perfectly formed with original features galore, naturellement.* In fact, a little something like this…

Studio apartment is sometimes used as estate agent speak for drab bedsit, but you could never put this sugar-coated, open-plan space into that bracket.

I love, love, love that super shiny upstand around the kitchen worksurface and the integrated shelf / extractor hood is really streamlined. Standard cooker hoods can look so ugly sometimes and this combines display and functionality perfectly. In fact, I wish I’d thought of that!

Perhaps a little shimmery wallpaper in those alcoves would make this look even prettier… and I do like a silvered mirror.

I’m pleased I’m not the only one with trailing wire issues. When will someone go on Dragon’s Den and invent wireless everything?

This reminds me of how much I want a Moroccan wedding blanket for my bed. If I’m not mistaken, the paper butterfly collage is by Cissy Cook, although I like her White Collection best, especially the little fan design. Perhaps I could have a go at recreating one of those for that spot above my sofa?

* I’m not sure my dreams can be sustained on my pitiful GCSE language skills, do you? Apologies to any actual French speakers out there… I just can’t help myself!
