APRIL

 Pink and Blue floor cushion, £115 -  Graham & Green

Even though we're heading towards summer it doesn't much feel like it at the moment and I'm still in hibernation mode!  I'm loving this faux fur armchair, it'd make the perfect addition to the studio where I've created a snug reading corner (I'd probably have to paint the legs black though).

I've a feeling that if it did appear, however, Colin and Bootsy would hog it and I wouldn't get a look in!

INSPIRING SPACES

You may remember a little while back I wrote a post on the new lifestyle aesthetic that is Wabi Sabi.  This room, right, in the former home of fashion designer Calvin Klein, was created by the unofficial master of Wabi, Axel Vervoordt.

The Belgian, now in his mid-sixties, doesn't so much design interiors as curate them.  A lifetime of collecting antiques for the love, rather than investment, and how to display them gave Vervoordt a platform.  After studying Zen Buddhism he learned to recognise 'the fullness of emptiness' and the concept of Wabi found its way in to his work.

An Axel Vervoordt interior is about how objects are arranged in a space, with the space itself being a mere stage for his collections.

It is everything I love - imperfection and raw beauty mixed with natural materials.  It is simple and unfussy but with the odd touch of ostentation - think gilded candlesticks upon a rustic wooden table against a backdrop of distressed plaster.  Oh the serenity!
