Beautiful finds to share with you


As an interior decorator I am always on the search for the right pieces of furniture and decorative items to bring into my client’s home.

The passed days I was looking for some items to finish a project I was working on and I came across some beautiful pieces of furniture, old or new, and some fabulous decorative stuff!

I wanted to share with you these items together with the addresses where I found all of it, because I might think that maybe you could be interested in it.

Proposing my client a new piece of furniture or decorative item, I always try to show the item on the hand of design images on which the chosen piece is seen.

That is why here today I post the discovered item together with an image that is helpful to imagine the item brought into your home.

Today I discovered some beautiful pictures at the blog Malvini of my friend Veronique.

She wrote about the wine tables which are homemade and handmade at her company MALVINI.

I love adding wine tables in the house. You always find a place to bring them in, in your kitchen, your living room, wine cellar, conservatory,…

The pictures of the Malvini wine tables in French chateaux were posted by Veronique on her blog yesterday! HERE

A good idea to place them in your garden!

A few months ago, I posted about ALEXANDRA SIEBELINK, an interior designer from The Netherlands.

I really love her design style! She is so talented and knows to create the most wonderful interiors!

Alexandra is also a blogger. Discover her blog HERE. You will not be disappointed!


Here is what I found on Alexandra’s website.


12A Han Vase 220 before C- 200 after C, transformed into a table lamp.


6 Don’t you love the way Alexandra is placing all those gorgeous items together!?


11Han dynastie Hu vase

Notice that patina!


13 Incense burners Han dynasty


5 I might think that Alexandra uses the incense burners as planters here on that wine table.

And last but not least, I discovered some gorgeous pieces of furniture at TROVE GALLERY.
