Decorating with Words

Hello Lovelies! I'm preparing the post on "Timeless Pieces of Furniture: The Armchair"... Excuse me while I only learn how to become a webdesigner, how to drive a car and launch an Etsy shop, all at once! ***The official launch of my Etsy shop will be on April the 8th, so save the date! There will be special discounts! Yay!*** In the meantime, here is a post about Alysia's apartment. I love the butterfly theme (of course!) that goes all around the apartment, and that she decorates with words: "Simplify"... [Lire la suite]

Funny Things Happen

Hello, A Dresser with Framed Insects (photo source unknown). Just when i was thinking of the new "bug decor" category, on September the 4th, sfgirlbybay and d*s, two of my fave blogs (they're daily reads, actually) happen to mention bugs the exact same day! First, let me mention the guest post by Amy Azzarito at d*s: she was talking about Wedgewood porcelain, but i happened to spot the beautiful butterflies in the cabinet! Have a look: Second, there was Victoria mentioning "weird science" on an pretty... [Lire la suite]

Moving Forward

Hello Lovelies! I decided it's time for this blog to move forward and give you more decor porn to look at - just like the example above! I have been cleaning and organizing a lot lately, you can see a few pics here on Flickr, and I'll post about this more at length tomorrow, BUT the result is that I threw away a lot of magazines and kept quite a few of which I mean to tear the best pages "for your eyes only", scan them and post them here, so I can throw away even more mags, but still enjoy the best they have to offer. ...

In The Mood For Dark Wood

Hi, I'm happy to be back in town! ;-) I'm glad to discover I'm not the only girl into dark, masculine wood. Check out Nina's apartment on AT! I've always been into dark wook and masculine flair. I believe it derives from my genuine love for Art Deco and the Thirties style, esp. Hollywood's Golden Era! Here are a few examples I stumbled upon last week on the blogosphere: an amazing collecting of Danish and German vases (unknown source). Pernille Vest is the stylist for this photo. Check out her amazing portfolio! ... [Lire la suite]

Yellow Stuff for My Kitchen

After some yellow inspiration, comes the perspiration. Cleaning and organizing the kitchen, then buying some yellow stuff as pick-me-ups for the room. Here's what I found at : A yellow rug to put below sink, two white and yellow mugs to hang above counter, one dishtowel with same leaf/floral pattern as mugs (to be hung too), and a small bamboo tray for lemons and onions, to put on counter top. Yay!Beautymist.
