I’ve always loved this brand but I think I love their stylism, aesthetic, photography and greys even more….will go and see them at the end of Jan. in Paris… J’ai toujours aime cette marque mais je pense que j’aime encore plus leur stylisme, esthetique, photography et leurs gris….J’irais les voir a Paris fin Janviero… http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs

DIY light

I don’t know…there is something very homely about this lamp made out of fabric scraps and I think it would make a wonderful little DIY projet to turn a one cold, wintery weekend into a creative one…Although I think I’ll try mine with scraps of white and grey fabrics (c) Photos: MARCUS LAWETT and SY – SINCERELY TEXTILES from IKEA Creative IKEA… Je ne sais pas…Cette lampe fait a partir de bouts de tissus degage un truc tres agreable et je pense que ce sera un merveilleux petit project a faire un weekend pendant que nous restons a la maison bien au chaud…quoique je ferais surement le mien avec des bouts de tissues blancs et gris. http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs

My bedroom: Work in progress

There is nothing better than a good night sleep to feel upbeat again :-) So here is the wall I painted on Sunday in Pavilion gray from Farrow and Ball. It’s a very soft, soothing grey which works perfectly in a bedroom. And against the plaster works, it reminds of the Hausmann style seen in apartments in Paris. My electrician hung this beautiful light for me and next week, I will change the switch to a brushed stainless-steel one and paint the door and skirting boards in white… Do you like it? Il n’y a rien de mieux qu’une bonne nuit de sommeil pour avoir de nouveau la peche :-) Donc voici le mur que j’ai peint hier en Pavilion gray de Farrow and Ball. C’est un doux tres beau et calmant qui est parfait pour une chambre et contre les corniches en platre, cele me rappelle le style Hausmannien des apparts de paris. Mon electricien a accroche cette belle lampe pour moi. La semaine prochaine, je change les interrupteurs pour des versions en stainless-steel …

Sunday evening

I finished painting my bedroom wall. I should be feeling happy but I’m tired and a bit down. It’s cold and dark outside and it’s Sunday evening. I just had a chat on facebook with my best friend Manu who lives in Paris. I can’t wait to see her in January. This beautiful image of Lauren Ward reminds me of her so this is for her and for all the best friends out there. via Aubrey Road http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs
