Birthday dreaming of my London flat

Today is Suzanne's birthday!! And every year we'd like to commemorate the event by asking her to write a dream post. What would she have for her birthday if the sky was the limit! Here is what Suzanne came up with this year....

My 'Birthday Dream' for this year is to re-do my current town home from browns and neutrals to a crisp version of a London flat. White Venetian plaster with high gloss black, 10 ft. doors and trim. Crisp white crown details and nickel hardware. Accents of gorgeous fresh acidic yellow and rich ocean blues.

Sterling flatware from Puiforcat, "Bayonne" flatware c. 1924 is my favorite. And then, the must-have for tabletop is the "Ikat" jewel tones from Hermès. Carpenter's Workshop represents the work of Studio Job, whose Foyer Center Table I adore, and candlesticks as well.
