Chez Danielle

Following Danielle Rollins’s home renovation on Instagram was definitely more fun than watching one of those property TV programs. She’s creative, fun, and extremely talented so I was very excited to see the final result in the December issue of Veranda magazine

After her divorce, this project was a new starting point for Rollins. With the help of architect Bill Ingram, the tastemaker transformed a ‘not so appealing’ pedestrian 1970s Georgian into her dream Atlanta home.

November favourites

Susannah Garrod’s candle shades They made their debut at the Salvesen Graham Christmas Pop Up and I couldn’t resist buying two of these unique handmade shades. They are fabulous!

 

The Sketchbook of a gentleman by Robin Lucas  I’m a big fan of Robin Lucas’s work so I was very happy to discover that he just released his first book.                                                    ‘The Sketchbook of a gentleman – London’  is a collection of whimsical illustrations of Edward, a man about town, and his London life as imagined by Lucas  ‘from ever-familiar sights to views into an exclusive world of subtle glamour and elegant understatement’

Robin’s Instagram is filled with so many inspiring images, he’s definitely one to follow!

 

Spanish fashion designer Jorge Vazquez’s Madrid apartment It was a breath of fresh air to see the home of fashion designer Jorge Vazquez’s gracing the cover of Elle Decoration España. Designed with the help of  Amaro Sanchez de Moya, this home proves that classic style can also be fun, playful and very liveable.

 

Tablesetting heaven at Pia Rubio  It’s a joy to find a place dedicated completely to l’art de la table like Pia Rubio’s store in Madrid. Pia’s taste is impeccable and is always a treat to pass by and chat with her and her team. On this occasion, they were presenting the Christmas tables and as you would expect, it was a feast for the eyes.

 

Max Rollitt’s Bloomsbury style lamps What’s not to love about Max Rollit’s handpainted lamp bases in the Bloomsbury manner?

 

Pepa Yuste’s capsule collection for Lecube: This unique hand painted plates designed by Pepa Yuste for Lecube will brighten up any table!
