Spring Colour Week : Chartreuse Day

Hello Lovelies! ...So on with the Spring Colour Week! Today is my favorite color day ! Green... and Chartreuse in particular! Yay! Again, I will show only objects I own and have lying around in the house. My mobile phone case which is not only chartreuse, but also displays a dill pattern, one of my fave patterns ever! A chartreuse corner in the living-room with two chinese bowls, Japanse incense and a crane painting on wood, by a friend of mine. And that's my contribution to Chartreuse day!enjoy! -Beautymist.

Pink: The Art of Line

Hello Lovelies! and Happy Monday! Yes, let's start the week with a wonderful discovery I made recently... detail of a painting by Line - from her website I just discovered Line's art via the decor8 blog and just had to put an emphasis on it! photo-montage by Holly Becker for her wonderful decor8 blog. PINK is my least favorite color, but Line makes an exquisite use of it, together with the color red and abstract compositions. So I think I simply love her art! Speaking of pink and the use of colors... Jan of the famed... [Lire la suite]

Sunday Deeds & Toughts

Hello Lovelies! Spring comes in all kinds of blue hues... photo by Beautymist. So far, i’ve been to the countryside for a day and a half. Had a long walk in the woods. Stopped by the cemetery and an old ruined chapel (see my photo above) where I prayed for my GrandPa (he passed away a year ago). I meditated. Then on my way home I gathered pinecones to lit a fire. I made a fire from scratch in the fireplace. Did some yummy meals, talked to friends, learned to crochet, relaxed with tea and decor ... [Lire la suite]

Yellow is Your Color

I took this silly colors quizz and the result is the sunny YELLOW. ...and I quote : "You are quite the powerful thinker. It’s this talent that allows you to overcome a plethora of great obstacles. Luckily, this doesn’t affect your ego and you give off a pretty easy-going appearance. You enjoy the finer things in life and also have an attraction to art. If you can help it, you try not to rock the boat. But you also can’t stop yourself from searching for new ideas, methods or styles." Quite accurate, but i'm more a BLUE... [Lire la suite]

My New, Zen-like Home!

Hello Lovelies! I'm sure that by now, you'd love to see a few glimpses of my home! Here's the challenge I've overcome over the week-end: choose only the best, most beautiful, most useful objects around your home. toss/discard/give/recycle the rest. Having to take photographs actually helps you to do it! ;-) ...So here are *my* keepers in the entry/hallway : in the kitchen: in the dining-room: in the living-room: in the bedroom: What are your keepers? Do you like a Zen, tranquil, uncluttered look for your home? ... [Lire la suite]
