A couple of weeks ago, fresh from returning from San-Francisco, I then headed to Paris to take back my niece Lily after she had spent the holidays with us in the Bay of Arcachon. While I’m still finding my marks, this not so planned ‘gap year’ in France has been fantastic to see more of my family and old friends. I love staying in my sister’s flat. It is such a cosy, beautiful space with a real feel-good, happy vibe to it yet, the happy vibe was not a given…
It’s funny how each of my travel photos on Instagram seem to be driven by a specific colour depending on where I go. Croatia last year was a mixed of dark blue and natural hues, Portugal in February was a celebration of pale blue and white, San-Francisco last week was an hymn to soft pink and soothing pastels and I can’t tell you how much I loved it!
It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful the Bay of Arcachon is, even in Winter. Last weekend, the weather was just glorious and so mild for November, it felt like a gift.
I know… the last thing you were expecting me to write about was toilet but bear with me :-) I’m off to Paris next week to attend the Airbnb conference where I will be part of the Expert panel to share tips and advices on how to style your home, promote it via social media and get positive reviews.
One of the projects I most proud of out of all the things we achieved with our house renovations (loft conversion, new kitchen, the resin floor) is our Tadelakt bathroom. Its a material I have been wanted to use for years because it looks and feels like polished concrete and the results achieved really exceeded my expectations.
