And so said Coco Chanel

An interior is the natural projection of the soul.
Coco Chanel (1883-1971)

Wow. I've been saying that all along and it's fantastic to find myself in such legendary company. 

I came across that quote yesterday on a blog called Pure and Simple. Pure and Simple's written by a 27-year-old Dutch Illustrator who goes by the name of M. He has a great voice and a great eye. And some dramatic before and after shots of his and his partner's hard work as they set about transforming their old home. Check it out.


  1. Excellent post. I love his website, especially where he said "Isn't it DIVINE! " That's what Phil says in response to my cooking! It will also add more fuel to our house-renovating project.

  2. Love the kitchen link! And C.C. I loved that she had 5 black skirts and sweaters and wore them every day so she wouldn't have to think about what to wear.

  3. Thanks for your comments Melody and Gorgeous. I love the five black skirts and sweaters anecdote about CC. Her entire existence proved that things are more fantastic when they're not complicated.


Talk to me!
