jean cocteau is rad

I wrote about Jean Cocteau's Milly-la-Forêt maison a little over a year and a half ago, but when I found these beautiful images I couldn't help but write about it again. Madeline Castaing, one of the premier decorators of the 20th century, assisted with the design. And I'm mad for it. Leopard walls, a tufted canopied bed, art and art supplies everywhere... it's perfect. The horn chair reminds me of a post I wrote for Coveted Home earlier this week (Coveted Home is a super cool boutique and design studio in KC where I now work, though it feels more like play :). Would you ever upholster your walls in an animal print? I totally would. Especially if I could do it in this Scalamandre number! Dream big.

Ooh, this is fab. Cocteau was a consummate artist and a true Renaissance man. I have the same birthday as him and I've always been inordinately proud of that fact.
