I came across this beautiful Lamu home in Architectural Digest a couple of years ago. The aesthetic resonates with what I want for my living space and, to think that this beauty is in my homeland? Makes it even more fabulous a find. I actually ripped out a page to put up above my desk – a constant reminder of one of the things I'm working so hard for. 

I'm glad that I found an online version of the article so that I can share it with you all. Check out Architectural Digest for more pictures.

  3. Wallpaper is the single most important element that can transform and improve a room. I believe I have the richest, most diverse collection of wallpaper and wall covers and I would like to give you a catalog of hard copies for your keeps. It is a collection shipped in from California USA but collected from all over Europe, Asia and the Americas. Please let me know when I may deliver these to you anytime from Mon 21st January 2013.
