houndstooth & my designs

this autumn i find this fantastic yet very traditional pattern extremely hot. who would not love the pied de coq? although black'n'white is my favorite i still find other colors very delicious too.



so strange that my own stuff is influenced by the fab pattern? here you have some pics of my designs, more coming soon.

013 - Copy

do you like them?

and happy happy happy weekend!

love the cushions

i don't think i have to explain how much i love these cushions by thomas paul! i wish i could find this stuff somewhere close to my hoods.
now, my long flight from the paradise is over and i'm back in paris to meet a friend who i haven't seen in 11 years! last time we met we spent a summer in paris and on corsica, travelling around and partying. now, 11 years later i'm so excited to meet her family of one husband and two kids. lovely! we'll have a coffee along the champs-elysees and chat a long time before i continue back to stockholm. oh, and i might have to visit some shops too...

decision making difficulties 2

saint gilles 1

a real dilemma, no?
thank you jenny the rock star for the lovely notation about my skin! i'm sure it's not the same after all these mojitos though...

decision making difficulties

the farmers' market had so many lovely things. one of these sweeties had to come with me.


ok, let's see what the saint-gilles has to offer...

dreamy french village in the indian ocean



i know i've been helplessly bragging about my current location for work, but oh man there's down sides to everything. damned i wish i had my lovely mademoiselles with me! i'd love some company here. i even brought my jogging shoes with me, hoping to keep up with my ass lifting project but... OK, here's the thing: in the mornings { perfect time for work out along the beach front } i have to go up so early, get some croissants { delicious, but bad for the butt } and coffee just to manage to go to work at 7.30.


at nights it's so dark already at 19 { i finish working with customers around 20 if i'm lucky, just in time to go back to the hotel for some more work } so there's no way i would run a step. everything is closed in this sweet little village, all the time! so my nights are spent in bed with some more french gourmandises.


but, i found one nice bar for the best mojitos ever. hooray!


fortunately i love travelling alone too, tomorrow is the last day of work, then to the exotic location on the west coast...



tonight, after a long day at the office, i'm feasting with blue cheese, chocolat de la reunion, whole grain cookies, red wine and spicy chorizo. i might need to train just a little harder when back in stockholm...

oh la la lounging in paris

in about couple of hours i'm stepping into an airplane which will take me away from paris. YES, i'm in paris! i'm excited, i love paris, but i must move on now... { paris has although one big minus. the CDG airport. hello, who designed the ugliest, coldest, non-coziest, not internet connected, no lounge'n'wine combo, not-a-single-fun-thing-in-here airport disaster? i need to check in, maybe i find some stylish lounge hangouts on the other side...}


lovely white chic home, no?

... and, yet you have no idea where i'm heading at... i'm so excited, bouncing around madly. be back soon { depending in the island's internet connexion... }

like this thing

a friend of mine is redoing the home, and he's into wallpaper with cow parsley motive. let's see what else we can find.

swoosh that yellow makes my blood running faster again. i need to order a sample of that cole&son to do something funky with. maybe for my new chairs from 1889..? they need to get tiinafized anyway so maybe this could do the trick.

the wallpaper collection nordic leaves by fiona. very delightful. very nordic.

swoosh swoosh... it's the sound of my tail.

loosing my breath. love these cushions. yes, we kind of lost the cow parsley theme but i'm still digging these alot. you must check out more stuff from agnes&hoss.

the theme is back again. beauties from rachel barker.

a swedish home, more pictures here.

door mat to fit the style. find it here. welcome home honey.
