I’m Loving: MilK Decoration N°5 Book

If you’re a fan of MilK, a French interiors and fashion magazine for kids and hip parents, like I am then you’ll love their latest little book (#5 in the series) called MilK Decoration N°5. It’s gorgeous! See for yourself…

A Bollywood inspired home from the book, I found this spread particularly pretty in violet and red tones with hints of fresh green and black.

The table and lighting caught my eye in this room above.

The Edwyn Collins sketched owl wallpaper shown above, produced by my friend Katja at Elli Popp, is one that I definitely plan to order for my home. I not only love the paper, but I really love the story behind how Edwyn’s sketchy series of birds came together and how my friend discovered his work and turned it into ceramics and wallpaper that is now selling at stores like Liberty and Anthropologie. So inspiring.

Gorgeous floor and bookcase. I love how most of the books are stacked, too.

This room is very me – I love the bright, fresh openness of it and the warmth of the wood which keeps all of the white from looking too clinical.

Such a sweet boy’s room. I love the no-nonsense curtain.

This is a truly lovely and cozy nook. The wall color is positively to die for – it’s this smoky eucalyptus color that feels so inviting.

I found my copy of Milk Deco No. 5 in Berlin but you can pick up a digital or print version online here. If you have a hard time with the French site, Little Big in England sells it online. The book is written in both English and French, which was a real selling point to me because it eliminated the usual frustration I feel when purchasing foreign language decorating books.

I love the beautiful, diverse, casual, personal and eclectic homes in this little book – this is my personal style all the way so naturally I’m drawn to the more quirky touches and personalization that I see in the homes featured in this sweet volume. If you pick up a copy, I’m certain you’ll love it as much as I do… and a big plus is that the layout is very fresh with each family story divided by a gorgeously golden page with perfectly pretty typeface that make it such a joy to flip through if you love pretty letters as much as I do. :)
