What did you want to be as an adult when you were a child?I wanted to be fashion designer. Even at a young age,I always would read lots of fashion magazines, books etc…I still have aspirations of one day designing my own kids clothing line.

Where do you live and what you like about it?I live in Boise, Idaho. Pronouced, {Boy-see not Boy-zee}. It is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. state of Idaho. Located on the Boise River. I love this city and have lived here since I was 4 years old. I love the fact that we have 4 breathtakingly beautiful seasons here in Idaho. It is such a lovely city, and I am so proud to live here!

Laurette

I discovered Laurette at Maison&Objet in Paris and thought it was an appealing and well done furniture collection, with its nod to the 40′s-50′s and beautiful finish. It reminded me of a friend, desperate to find a children’s highchair matching her stylish living room. She bougth one at Ikea and repainted it in Farrow and Ball sophisticated grey. She could probably have found what she was looking for at Laurette. The Laurette beds, desks, chest of drawers and other home pieces will soon be available to order online. Boutique Laurette, 77 bd JC Clément, 92100 Boulogne-Billancourt, France – Tél. + 33 (0)1 46 99 04 19 www.laurette-deco.com
