Current obsession: Indian Chakki Tables...

You know one of those elusive items that you see when you have overspent for the month and then spend years daydreaming about and kicking yourself for not getting? That is how I feel about the beautiful Indian Chakki Table that I saw in Glastonbury's Dilway and Dilway 4 or 5 years ago. Since then I have been searching and searching but have never found one in the UK that hasn't 'just been sold', too big for my sitting room or topped with a cushion and transformed into an ottoman.

Originally used as a base and stand for household stone mills they make great coffee tables, especially if you are clumsy like me and have habit of knocking over red wine and coffee as the raised edge can help prevent it running over the sides and ruining your carpet or favorite rug.

One day I will have one...

The relaxing home of... Lauren and Chad

Macrame Planter

Beautiful light and airy Master bedroom

Guest room
Up close: succulents and air plants
The sitting Room, with an original Eames chair (sigh)

 I had re-pinned a number of pictures from this house before finding a working link that took me through to Apartment therapy and discovering it was all the same house. The home is owned by Vintage shop 'Dear Golden' owners Lauren and Chad and is situated in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

The bathroom and that beautiful relaxing bedroom are the two rooms that really caught my eye. Obviously it has been tidied, de-cluttered and styled within an inch of it's life for the photo shoot but I still really like the vibe of this place.

If like me you are a bit obsessed with that stunning mid-century modern planter, you can get similar designed by Justina Blakney here
