{ochre: now & then}

Fell completely for this room -- the large windows, impossibly high ceilings, upholstered bed and stunning bespoke chandelier, only to discover that I had fallen for the very same room a year before . . .

I love the way they rearranged. Facing the window is a huge improvement and adds interest.

Ochre was and is my favourite shop in the ENTIRE WORLD. hands down, no questions asked. I even registered there when we got married!

would happily move into the store and take up residence, but I imagine the shopgirls might have a thing of two to say about that...

A Gift Wrapped Life – completely hilarious about the mini-bar :)

designfabulous – definitely agree about the new arrangement

Rachel – thank you! {and shall remember to thank Tea for Joy as well}

Anne – we practically did move into the shop in NY – there was a huge thunderstorm and it was raining so hard, we had to spend part of the afternoon at Ochre. What a great idea to have a registry there!

Liz – the people at houzz have been e-mailing me to check it out, but only had a few moments – will take a closer when I have more time

As always, thanks for taking the time to say hello -- hope you had a lovely week!

if my apartement weren't the size of a shoebox i would find a way to hang a chandelier like this one... i'm pretty sure you can't even have a grumpy day if you come home to something this lovely!

Wow that room is fab! No wonder you love it so much. The lighting above the bed is so romantic and the bed itself makes me think of curling up in it with big fluffy pillows and a soft duvet... aaah, I'm getting sentimental just thinking about it!
