I love the home of fashion designer Martin Grant, an Australian who made it big in fashion who currently designs and works in Paris. His home is brilliantly chic with a subdued palette and bright bursts paired with clean lines just like the clothing he creates. But let’s talk about the chair in his living room.
You can see his entire home at Making It My Style, but I want to highlight the living room because I really want that lounge chair. It looks comfy but also light and airy, which I love. At first glance, I thought it was Ligne Roset but I cannot seem to find it on their website.
Do you know where I can find this chair? C’mon design enthusiasts – help a girl out.

Speaking of Lucy from The Design Files… Did you catch the two of us in the March catalog for West Elm? Each month until the end of summer, I’ve selected a different blogger to partner with and together, we give West Elm readers decorating advice. This special collaboration between West Elm and I kicked off in January and I’ve been having such a great time with them. I hope you’ve enjoyed the January, February and March issues so far, and my decorating ideas too!
Oh and hellooooo Australia! West Elm will open its first stop in Sydney in May with another to follow in Melbourne. Wow, right? You have to check them out on their new Aussie Facebook page for the latest updates. This is the first time West Elm has opened up shop outside of North America – you guys are a lucky bunch! I wish they’d come to Germany or at least England as that’s only a 50 minute flight for me. A girl can dream…

Can we talk about glass cabinets for a moment because I found some online that I have to share with you. I have two glass “Vitrines” but I’m thinking to sell one because the glass goes only halfway up with the bottom being solid wood. I’m thinking to swap it out for one with only glass like these from Lindebjerg Design in Denmark. My favorites are below shown in gray and the other is a shorter version in black for mounting to a wall. I would love to have a mountable glass vitrine like that in black (or white) for my kitchen wall, wouldn’t you? It would be gorgeous to display tea cups, tea tins, and spices inside, wouldn’t it?
These would be equally stunning in a bathroom with a clawfoot tub and a black and white tile floor or old wooden floors aged beautifully OR maybe even white or black penny tiles. Isn’t it fun to dream about the perfect bathroom? I could get lost in bathroom design. I want to ultimately own a home so I can make my interior dreams see the light of day but for now, I have to work with what I have in my rental apartment and that usually means buying what can be removed easily upon moving. So, back to cabinets!
I saw this on Pinterest and went a little bonkers and traced it back to Barb Blair from Knack Studios. Oh my goodness Barb, this is some kind of incredible. Then I saw it on Poppytalk and learned that it’s a collaboration between Knack and her friends Annie Koelle and Eric Benjamin. My goodness gracious these are cool.

Psst: Barb just wrote a gorgeous book that I wrote the foreword for, it’s called Furniture Makeovers, and it will release next May but you can pre-order it here. I can’t wait to get my hands on it. That is going to sell off the shelves for sure.

I spotted this gorgeous furniture designed and made in the Netherlands and couldn’t help but share it with you. Magnificent! It’s from a company called SlowWood, have you heard of them before?
I really appreciate that each piece is handmade by a local Fryslan craftsmen in solid wood with 100% natural finishes and mineral paint and I love their clean, modern look and feel.
