Nice Color Combo

Hello Lovelies! I really like the color combo in this house: This is Catherine's place, and you can visit it thoroughly here. Since I love white flowers, like the ones shown above, I love a quite dark background to befit them best. Here we have a touch of (dark) orange and other autumn colors. Love! enjoy! -Beautymist.

Reading Nook Under a Window

Hello lovelies! And... Happy Monday to all of you! Here's the first post of my new mini-series about small space hacks, courtesy of MCM. Click on the pic to view real large and read the caption (in French). The idea here is basically to add a nice lil reading nook under a window, by adding a buit-in bench covered by a strong, dense mattress (Bultex is recommended here). I have a much smaller window, but here is what I've done... Painted the sill white, added a cushion, and during summer days (ahem...) I can open the window... [Lire la suite]

Summing Up The Week

Hello Lovelies! I *did* intend and want to post every day this week but it has been more hectic than I thought. :-(I had to go back and forth by bus (I don't drive) to many places. At least this makes an occasion of taking fun blurry pictures of the countryside, through the bus window. Do you feel the urge and rush? So, that being said, I want, starting this coming Monday, to analyze in-depth 30 tricks for small spaces, courtesy of Marie-Claire Maison magazine. They have just published a booklet on the subject, and I want to... [Lire la suite]

Michelle Lives with Art House Tour

Hello! Another AT House Tour not to be missed! I especially loved the art Michelle hung above the couch in the living-room... Amazing, isn't it? Love its soft greys... The art is by Scott Benedict. Here's what Michelle says : "the paintings are by an American artist - Scott Benedict. I bought them about 8 yrs ago from a small chelsea gallery called Zieher Smith www.ziehersmith.com. They might still be able to find you some of Scott's old work and if not, perhaps you can track Scott down directly on artnet.com" ... [Lire la suite]
