. . . despite the perfectly wonderful warm temperatures lately, the sunny mornings and rather balmy breezes, even while the days are slowly, slowly getting longer minute by minute, every year, around this time, there is the longing for the fountains to be open once again, and for leaves and boxwood hedges, for blades of grass, and shades of green, stretching into forever . . .

. . . can hardly believe it has been nearly three years since have checked in on dannijo, begun by two sisters, and whose beautiful jewellery was first published here in 2010; and now, even after all this time,  their ad campaigns are still as lovely as ever, and this one carries with it, a heady excitement for spring . . .

. .  and while on the topic of rearranging the drawing room, the curtains may need an update as well, and a favourite look is adding a little country to the city, by means of perfectly elegant florals -- a little rustic to the refined -- and this mid-19th-century home in london’s holland park, with its extravagantly lovely crown moulding and wonderfully ornate carved mirrors and delicate wall sconces, [and of course, the romantic floral drapery], is inspiration, indeed . . .

{décor inspiration : mongolian lamb stools}

. . . in the process of rearranging the living room, and currently, the loveseats are perpendicular, with one facing the fireplace, its back to the door, but are considering moving them to face one another, and adding a pair of x-stools or lucite ones in front of fireplace, but at first glimpse of this room, think a pair of mongolian lamb stools may be just the thing . . .

{p.s.} these might work

. . . and despite amassing more than enough inspirational links (in fact, so much so that, they will need to be split into a few weekly farewells), there was not time enough, this weekend, for the usual week's end wishes & links; for, after the bicycle rides and brunches, the mochas and carrot cake in sun-drenched cafés, the taxi rides from quaint shops and new pieces of furniture, and the many perfect hours in each other's company and by the fire, there was hardly any time left, but to be completely lost in the moment . . .

happy monday! hope you've had a perfectly lovely & extravagantly relaxing weekend, and that your week is off to a perfect start, —roséline xo

First caught a glimpse of Christine's style in a beautiful image of a beaded make-up bag on a vanity, and ever since, have been smitten with her design aesthetic, and so, upon coming across the designer & blogger's Toronto home, fell instantly in love with the brass and carerra, the perfect mixes of prints, textures and patterns, shades of pink and touches of leopard print and gold . . .

. . . and with all the boyish charm lately, it's time to return to a little romance -- ornate ceilings and pale peonies, and crystal chandeliers and yves saint laurent, fluttery pleats and floating balloons, shoes and swans and breakfast in the morning light, and most all, to perfectly pretty shades of petal pink . . .
