THE JUMPSUIT | OUTFIT PERFECTION

Given how many jumpsuits I have in my wardrobe, I thought it was time to write about it!I don’t think I ever found anything so versatile. It’s feminine, practical, easy to accessorise and very sexy with the right shoes. © Horses Atelier The working mum in me, probably wears them a bit too often now (hence the required ownership of several) but frankly they go with everything! So here is a round up of my favourite models and shoes to go with it. Plain Jumpsuits1/ My latest acquisition is this jumpsuit in blue denim. I was actually trying something on at Scotch & Soda when Elodie emailed me a photo of the jumpsuits she was trying in Paris and I ended up ordering it online in the changing room. Big LOVE! The fabric is soft, light and I love the denim colour for the Summer. 2/ For a more stylish look, this black Shreela jumpsuit by Malene Birger is one of my fav. It looks very chic and will perfect with any of clutches I mentioned here.3/ This Elisa jersey jumpsuit by …

How to style your bedroom for the Summer in no time

As the lovely Kate from Katie & The Kids bought our Ikea bed of me on Instagram, I re-arranged a few things to freshen up the look of our bedroom and bring a Summer vibe into…Did you notice how changing/re-arranging just a few things can make you feel hugely better!? I feel I have a new bedroom…. Here are 6 tips to style up your bedroom for the Summer in no time. ✔️ Move things around: I do this regularly and it’s a great way to freshen up the look of your home at no extra cost. I swapped the white stool bought in Amsterdam a few years ago for this wooden stool which was in our lounge (this one is also a nice and a more affordable alternative). ✔️ Upgrade your bed linens with summery colours: In Summer time, I love using white & blue touches throughout the house. It reminds me of our holidays in our home in France by the Bay of Arcachon. As you know, I’m a big fan of stonewashed linens and since it’s my birthday on Sunday, I treated myself to this soft Summer …

WHITES 03 | 2014

Last night Mila asked me: “Maman can I live with you until I have a big house”…I swear I love her a lot more than to the moon and back. It’s little moments that like these that remind me that being a mum is still the most important thing ever, no matter how much I love what I do career wise…And I say I because it’s such a sensitive subject and a personal choice that don’t want to generalise, everyone is different but I know a lot of you are in the same boat and will understand what I mean.Do you keep notes of all the wonderful things your children say? // 1.

Happiness in bed + Vintage roses

Is there such a thing that finding happiness with a pair of pyjamas? Yes there is… I confirm.And if it may seem like I’m shopping a lot at the moment, that would be….completely right too! © Photography: Hush Homewear The thing is…selling the content of our house on Ebay or Instagram to clear our home in preparation of the massive renovations, feel actually incredibly liberating!It’s good for the soul and it’s good to let go of things and while the purpose of clearing our house is not to re-fill my wardrobe, at the same time, it’s nice to freshen up its content + it’s Spring! So back to my fabulous PJs…I have been coveting Hush‘s Vintage Rose pyjamas for years…It was one of the first print they launched in 2003 and the only thing that stopped me until last week, was that the French in me, always wanted to wear sexy things in bed.Funnily enough when I asked Steve if he liked them, his answer was: “Yeah but I prefer you in something sexier rather than you …

A stunning white & concrete loft in Eindhoven

In the recent years, European lofts have been given New-York lofts quite a run for their money. The last family loft featured here was hugely inspiring, packed with beautiful details and an amazing chandelier from Anthropologie. Today, I’m taking you to Eindhoven to visit Jason’s beautiful loft. An amazing 87 sqm loft space with 4.60 m high walls which proved to be a bit challenging to paint.

Personal message from 3 kids to their wonderful mum

I think in our family, we are pretty good at telling each other how much we love or piss off each other but Elodie, François and I wanted to say thank you to the wonderful mum you are and for all the things that made a different to our lives and to the people we are now.
