Our Geneva Place

October 23, 2012 • Home DecorLife

while we are far from finishing settling in here in geneva – there is a neverending list of chores and storage problems that still need a solution – some nooks and corners are finally starting to look and feel like home. my favorite scented candle of all time is present in every single room (i think i may have bought the entire stock when byredo told me they stopped producing the scent, but lo and behold, it’s once again available in their webshop!) – they make sure everywhere feels warm and cozy.

my favorite room right now, and the one i spent most time on getting ready first, is the bedroom slash home office. it’s not ideal to work in the space where you sleep, but it has advantages too (working from bed, anyone?) most of our furniture here is from ikea, so i try to do my best adding personal touches in the decorating. i especially love all of the posters i’ve gathered over the years, getting them from friends or buying them abroad (or, let’s face it, binge shopping them on etsy).

some details // paper lamp from studio snowpuppe // reading light is the tolomeo by artemide // new york city and brooklyn prints from ork posters (frames from habitat) // bedding from ralph lauren // brimnes bed from ikea (super storage solution with huuuuge drawers underneath) // cartoon print from belgian gallery alley (via the lovely pablo and manon) // nerd sign from oh dier living // ribba holder for frames from ikea //  melltorp table as desk from ikea // desk lamp is the costanza by luceplan // desktop image by designlovefest // byredo’s baker’s guild scented candle // paper bag from merci
