I Believe in Unicorns

This image from the December 2011 cover of World of Interiors captures my heart every time I see it. The taxidermy 'unicorns' are situated in the entry hall of  the whimsical Chateau de la Goujeonnerie in France, which was renovated and decorated by the extravagant trio ( Hassan Abdullah, Michel Lasserre and Stefan Karlson) behind Les Trois Garcons  in London. This gorgeous pair of unicorns perfectly captures the exaggerated yet sophisticated style the designers are known for and make for the perfect way to step into a fairytale. 

The mystical (yet kinda creepy) unicorn heads that adorn the walls of the restaurant of the Faena Hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina make me determined to one day dine there. The crimson eyes of the decorative unicorn heads could surely transport you to a dream land  after a few cocktails...

Dallas interior designer Louise Kemp did not forget fairytale elements when designing her home. She combined a unique 19th century plaster unicorn with modern art and furnishings as well as more classical french chairs to create a stunning living area. 

Now it's official. I believe in Unicorns. Do you?

  2. I love the entry way to the Chateau de la Goujeonnerie and Louise Kemps more understated version, however the red eye ones creep me out too much, haha!
