Opposites Attract!

Hello lovelies, photo credit : see below. Today i feel like ranting a bit (sorry!) about reconciling the feminine and the masculine sides in me, design-wise, especially in the bedroom! As you may already know, I love what can be called "masculine flair", dark woods, deep brown and charcoal grey... picture found here But then there's of course a feminine side in me, who loves white floors, Scandinavian design, and the style of sfgirlbybay! So how do I reconcile the two in the bedroom? While browsing indierocket's... [Lire la suite]

Nino Sabatino's "Masculine Chic" Condo

Hello Lovelies, Hooray! My computer works (almost) perfectly well now and I can scan pages from fave magazines to share with you. Today i want to show you Nino Sabatino's place. The man has serious taste, but is not afraid of trial and error. While working for the Gucci store in Munich by day, he redecorates his apartment by night! First, his place has been all white and beige... or is plain and bland? LOL, just kidding. Then, it's been all purple!!! A few purple accessories remain now, as it turns a beautiful and musculine...

Wunderkammer Art

Hello Lovelies! I wanted to tell you about my own vision of Wunderkammer Art, what Leah at ApartmentTherapy calles "decorating with biology charts" (see below for link), but my computer is down and I'm writing to you guys from a cyber-café... So here goes a couple of interesting links on the subject... My own vision will have to wait. ApartmentTherapy says:"Inspired by Leah's recent post about decorating with biology charts, we wanted to share with you our own favorite source for old botanical and natural history...

Masculine Flair

I'm a woman, but I love what are traditionally considered "masculine" colors, such as charcoal grey, deep reds, black, rich chocolate, navy blue, etc... I also love the Apartment Therapy blog, because it represents the tastes of both sexes...Here are a few "dark" rooms for inspiration, from my image archives. If they are not properly credited, please contact me and i'll correct that! Thanks!You can click on all images to view them real large. This is a view of furniture designer Christophe Delcourt's bedroom... [Lire la suite]

A Day in The City

Hello Lovelies! Lyon and the river Saône. I had to spend a day in Lyon, France for, let's say, business stuff. But my business meeting was short (and pleasant) and so i had time and was in the mood for visiting the city for the first time, and also visiting a museum or two... Here's the ticket to the "Musée des Tissus et des Arts Décoratifs". Promising, isn't it? Here you can see the old pavement of the inside of the Museum, set in a beautiful, luxury "hôtel particulier", and me getting prepared with... [Lire la suite]

Oh, and Happy, Happy Friday!

Hello Lovelies! Have a swell week-end and warm yourself up watching this great photo by hijiriK, via the sfgirlbybay blog. Also, have a great Halloween night! I'm wearing a black moth-eaten sweater right now to feel in the mood, and I bought decorative, (non-edible) squashes for the home. Spooky! enjoy! Beautymist.
