Our friends brought us these beautiful pink peonies and, of course, I had to snap a few photos and share them because they kind of blew my mind. Peonies seem to grow almost like weeds here in Denmark, so the florists are full of them and I literally cannot keep myself from buying them, photographing them, and even stopping at every one I see along the way and taking a good sniff. In fact, I got caught last night with my nose stuck in someone’s flower garden and I sheepishly looked up and exclaimed, “Oh sorry! They smell so good!” She was very gracious and said it was totally fine, but I need to get better at being a little less of a flower magnet or better at not getting caught!
In addition to the pink peonies, a couple books arrived in the mail yesterday which is always an exciting event. I have been wanting Vanity Fair 100 Years for ages and am delighted to report that I was not disappointed. Not only does it look great on a coffee table, but it’s super inspiring and interesting to read. I also ordered a copy of Carine Roitfeld’s Irreverent book which is equally mind blowing. Karl Lagerfeld is known for saying that…
“If you close your eyes and imagine the ideal French woman, it would be Carine Roitfeld.”
That was all the motivation I needed to order her book. And yet again, I was not disappointed and will now be ordering her much coveted CR Fashion Book Magazines, which have a near cult-like following.
What about you? What is on your summer reading list/decorating agenda?
