More Paris please...







Another Parisian beauty...I love the clever use of colour, the details, the art but most of all I admire the way the owners mix their everyday pieces with their designer ones, that's an art too.

See more gorgeousness here

Have a brilliant day

contemporary flair

This home belongs to the Duval family. I love the contemporary feel and the details, adore their collection of contemporary art and the black and white colour scheme...just glorious! And of course it's located in one of the most beautiful cities in the world...yes you guessed right, this beauty is in the 16th arrondissement in Paris, perfect! See more here

take a seat




images they all hate us

Unwind...tell a story, admire the stars, create a memory, awaken new emotions...
Because that is what life is all about

Enjoy your day :)

what is grief?

For my dear friend Susan and her family. 
Susan's life was destroyed last Friday when her beloved John died...He was the most amazing husband, dad, friend...kind, generous, loyal. His life cut short by illness... why? Life is just not fair.

Here's a collection of images from Le tour. John was a fan. And he was a great cyclist himself.
It's my own humble way to pay tribute to a true gentleman, a top bloke. 
We will always remember you John. RIP.

unique

In my daily quest for authenticity and individuality I stumbled upon yatzer.com (thanks Mia Linnman for the heads up) and in the process the amazing Ammos Hotel in Crete. The hotel's interiors are a clever mix of colour, design, amazing details and so much more...(judge for yourself). Head architect Elisa Manola clearly has a great eye for colour and design and is obviously not afraid to break the rules, I like the way she introduces bright colours and fun details and how she plays with patterns and shapes...very clever! If you, like me, are blown away by what you see click here and read on!






Thank God it's Friday!

Have a great one
