beautiful "déjà vu"

I love the soft simplicity of this apartment. Everything placed perfectly, neither too much nor too cliché, the perfect balance. All we love is there.

Lorsque je parlais en début de semaine des « lieux communs » en voici un exemple typique. Il me plaît. Par sa douceur, sa simplicité où chaque chose est disposée à la perfection.

Ce type d'aménagement conforte notre imaginaire par la simple présence d'objets usuels que l'on rencontre dans plusieurs appartements, tels que le classique canapé gris d'Ikea, les suspensions en rotin ou or, les chaises disparates blanches et noires dans la salle à manger, les affiches en provenance The Poster Club, les pots de plantes en terracotta, les tapis au sol gris dans le living, les articles de la collection Sinnerlig, les théières japonaises...

Peut-on réellement s'en lasser ? Je ne crois/pense pas. Nous en rêvons, nous les imaginons.

Street Haunting: A London Adventure, by Virginia Woolf

Standing out in the street, one may build up all the chambers of an imaginary house and furnish them at one’s will with sofa, table, carpet. That rug will do for the hall. That alabaster bowl shall stand on a carved table in the window. Our merrymaking shall be reflected in that thick round mirror. But, having built and furnished the house, one is happily under no obligation to possess it; one can dismantle it in the twinkling of an eye, and build and furnish another house with other chairs and other glasses.
But what could be more absurd? It is, in fact, on the stroke of six; it is a winter’s evening; we are walking to the Strand to buy a pencil.
Or is the true self neither this nor that, neither here nor there, but something so varied and wandering that it is only when we give the rein to its wishes and let it take its way unimpeded that we are indeed ourselves? Circumstances compel unity; for convenience sake a man must be a whole.
