interior addict...



When I saw the name "interior addict" I thought wow what a fabulous name for a website and those of us who adore interior design.

I started browsing and was happy to find many of the items that I adore and even a few, that I used when decorating an apartment in London that we used to own.

The apartment was situated in a converted historic building which has  views of the river Thames and the houses of parliament so I chose a contemporary modern theme when decorating.

The first item that we purchased was this fabulous Le Corbusier Chaise Lounge which was popular with visiting friends and it was always a battle to remove them from it.

Writing this post has just made me realise that even when living in London I was already becoming a lover of French items but did not realise this at the time.

The second item that we bought for the lounge area was a noguchi style coffee table which was a case of love at first sight and it does not need adorning to look fabulous.


When I look at these photos I cannot believe how minamalist and clutter free my life was....

To complete the look in the living/dining area we had a large black leather couch and a large painting on the wall which featured abstract flowers painted in a very bright fuschia with a black bathroom.

The dining table was modern with glass top and we had Arne Jacobsen chairs similar to those that you see in the photo below but in white ....

I think that a website concentrating on design classics is a fabulous idea and what a great investment these pieces are, as they do not date.

I think that it is worth mentioning at this point, they we sold the apartment complete with all the furniture and fittings and that it was sold within a couple of weeks of listing it.

Browsing the interior addict website has renewed my interest in design classics hence I now have on my wish list the la corbusier chaise lounge in pony hide....



I love the concept of the this website and am sure that for lovers of the design classics plus pieces that will, one day become classics, this is the first port of call.

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

I first tried this in Provence and loved the combination of the lavender and the honey.

For those of you that have seen the movie it's complicated you will recall that Merryl Streep made it for Steve Martin and it really looked great.


By using honey as opposed to sugar you end up with icecream that is deliciously creamy and the smoothest ice cream you've ever tasted.


Be warned, though - there is a caveat...this ice cream will not freeze as well as homemade ice cream usually does. For those of you who like your ice cream hard freeze the ice cream overnight to make it scoopable, instead of the standard two to three hours after churning



Ingredients:


1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup dried lavender
4 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream

Method:

1. Bring the milk, cream, honey, and lavender to a gentle boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

2. Remove from the heat and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and let cool a bit.

3.In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg yolks, then gradually add som…

Bonjour from a sunny but chilly SW France,

Hope that you had a nice weekend. We spent yesterday afternoon at a furniture auction but I will tell you more about that later in the week.

Last weekend we bought a lot of wine cases as we thought that they would make good storage, as shown in the photo above.

I particularly liked the idea of making a set of drawers with them or perhaps even a serving tray like this.

We have quite a few boxes and wine box ends so any ideas that you have would be gratefully received...
Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

French Food Friday.....

This week we are taking a break from the skinny theme, and indulging in some healthy pears with some also very healthy chocolate....


About Poires Belle Hélène

This classic French recipe were invented Paris in the 19th century and were named after an opera by Offenbach. What a romantic introduction for this French dessert par excellence, a true classic, found in at least half of the restaurants of the Hexagone. It only takes a few minutes to assemble this dish if you use ready-made ingredients; it is actually not much longer to prepare half of them from scratch (the poached pears and the melted chocolate). You can even make crème Chantilly and toasted flaked almonds for a deluxe version on very special occasions.

About Poires William liqueur

A pear flavoured liqueur. Liqueur is a class of spirit that is usually sweet and often served after dinner. It is produced by either mixing or redistilling spirits with natural ingredients such as fruits, plants, flowers, or chocolate. Sugar must be at…
