carolina engman wishlist 2013

TUESDAY. Christmas is just around the corner and these are the items that are on top of my wishlist this year:

Beni Ourain Rug. Shark tooth necklace, Givenchy. Pajama set from Journelle. Gypset Style by Julia Chaplin. Pearl earring Sophie Bille Brahe. David Ehrenstråle “Guide to Bombay” poster. Chanel La nuit + Le jour serums. Scented candle from Tom Dixon. A fig tree (Maybe a bit random for a christmas wishlist, but we really need more plants in our apartment!). Vase from Svensk Tenn.
