Palais Bulles...... The Palace of Bubbles

 I remember watching Tara Palmer-Tompkinson on T.V in the 90's going on a search for a new holiday home with a cool budget of 1.5 million and this crazy bubble house was one of the houses she was looking at. She didnt buy it, and I remember thinking at the time she must be mad.... it is so cool!

Palais Bulles, or "Palace of Bubbles", was built in 1989 (not the 60's as it is often wrongly credited) by Architect Antti Lovag and is situated just outside of Calais with a stunning Mediterranean view, it has since been brought by Pierre Cardin, and has been the back drop for many fashion shoots, videos and Avant garde parties! It has also been listed as a historic monument by the French Ministry of Culture.

What i love about this crazy looking place is that it reminds me of caves from 50's and 60's films like Journey to the Center of the Earth or The Time machine.... even maybe Star Trek.

I bet Tara is kicking herself now!

Wall Hangings at Urban Outfitters

Recycled Lovers #30 Scalloped Wall Hanging
Otten Macrame Wall Hanging
I would love to be able to afford a beautiful wall hanging by Artists such as Electric Love NYC, or April Rose of Rainbow Kimono, but right now my interiors budget is regrettably minimal/ non-existent. So if like me you are currently counting the pennies Urban Outfitters does have a cheap and cheerful range of wall hangings to brighten up your walls.

Revisited: The Home of Erin Wasson...

The Eclectic Home of.... Model Erin Wasson
Dream Catcher from Electric Love co

 This is the second time I have shared images of model Erin Wasson's home. This time the images are show a lot more of a lived in and a lot less styled home. Personally i think it looks better this way! I have also included a few more shots of Erin's fabulous clothes.... the bead-work on that dressing gown is beautiful isn't it?

The great thing about this home is that, despite her probably over-flowing bank balance, Erin's home shows her eclectic character and personality. She has clearly chosen pieces she loves rather than pieces that match.
