Inspiration - The Rough with the Smooth



This isn't the first time I've written about Slywia's inspiring work, and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last. Project-i is one of the handful of interior design blogs that I continue to follow, because I love this Polish studio's aesthetic, choice of materials and mix of colours, textures, rustic and modern. There's always a rawness, an interesting, intelligent use of space and a real sense of place in their creations. Every little detail feels right. I could move into this flat tomorrow, couldn't you?

More photos this stunning apatment can be found on Project-i's blog
 here, here, here and here.

Moodboard - She Sells Seashells

So we're halfway through the school holidays and it feels like summer's just around the corner. Savannah and I have been enjoying the glow of the first rays of sunshine on our pale, winter skin, slowly turning apricot.

I love these carefree days - soft sunlight, a gentle breeze, the promise of longer, golden days to come.

Ahh, bientôt, 
Soon we will go to the sea...

Getting it Together

I am,
getting it together.

Suddenly, un déclic,
things are starting
to fall into place...

I have decided to step back a bit this year,
take my time,
 have a good long think about me, my life, online and off.
It's an age thing, I guess.

But I have plans,
a new direction,
an inspiring project,
un nouveau corde à mon arc.

One day,
when the time is right,
I'll tell you more...

I hope you enjoy this week's moodboard.
I always seem to be drawn to the same, neutral palette

Because it's me!



I have been very busy on facebook, pinterest and tumblr lately.
In case you're wondering where I've been.

Bon week-end !

Golden Brown, Texture Like Sun


Bonjour !

Happy Easter to all those celebrating today!

It's raining here, so quite honestly I just feel like staying under the covers and lounging around at home all day.  But, I promised myself that I would go for a run or a very long power walk at the least. 
I will do, later. I'm know.

Getting fit again, spending as much time as I can outdoors, is one of my priorities now. I crave nature, open spaces and the exquisite opportunity to spend sometime alone. I'm sure you all appreciate how vital a bit of "Me" time can be...

I am also longing for Summer, to feel that strong Mediterranean sun on my skin, slowly toasting me golden brown - I'm a Leo girl through and through. We turned the clocks back last night and all I can think about is enjoying a very early morning swim in the pool, listening to my kids playing out late in the garden with the swallows.

Bientôt - soon - j'ai terriblement envie ...

Tout Doux

Bonsoir !
Un grand besoin de douceur aujourd'hui.

It's unusually cold here and I've spent much of today battling through the wind and rain with a flimsy, now broken, umberella.
No surprise then that this week's moodboard is inspired by soft pastels, seascapes and pretty wild flowers.

C'mon on Spring, get your act together. We're waiting!!!
