5 things I want right now!

We had a lovely article yesterday in Homes & Gardens featuring our new Paola Navone wallpapers and in fact, I loved their whole selection of blue & white wares. The Ralph Lauren ceramics are very pretty, you should check it out. By the time you’ll be reading this, I will be on my way to the airport, off to France again, with a suitcase hardly unpacked from my recent trip: Kaftan dress √,  Isabel Marant dress √, honeycomb paper balls for Mila’s party √  So here is my selection for this week, enjoy! 1/ I love this denim shirt from Frame Denim…one of my fav things to wear at the beach over a white t-shirt 2/ my gold shopper bag which Elodie finally gave me back last time we were in France together :-) 3/A pair of Rayban. Isn’t this dress in the sale so pretty!? 4/ This lovely top from Isabel Marant (same collection than the blue dress I’m selling here, available for sale at £340 here).

Today I love…

  First of all, I’m loving this Bank Holiday Monday, don’t you!? We went for a bike ride early this morning to grab breakfast at Artisan, a really nice café in Stamford Brook that François and I shot a couple of years ago for The Simple Things magazine. I’m now sitting on my bed, admiring the view and working on my impeding interior design project in France while answering booking enquiries about this house (this one has only one week left available in August).

White kitchen makeover

Our white kitchen makeover

After 10 months of renovations, our home in London is finally ready and today I’m really pleased to share with you photos of our white kitchen makeover. You can see photos of the kitchen before the renovations when it got featured in Bolig magazine,  VT Wonen and ELLE DECORATION. The kitchen counter is made of Corian. The kitchen units are by Ludlow of Holloway and they also fitted the long breakfast bar. All the appliances are from Miele.

5 things I want right now!

1/ ok, just so you know…I had a Oh My God kind of moment when I spotted these Lille lace-ups 2/Boden has some great shirts like this denim top (similar to the one above) and this Astrid top goes nicely with a skirt or trousers. 3/ Now that I have my Kaftan dress which I love, next on my shopping list is this gorgeous Palm Beach top. This broderie top from Boden spotted in this article about the Violet Bakery in East London looks fab too. 4/While Mila thought my dark brown nail varnish last week, looked a bit Goth, I thought it looked pretty cool ;-) 5/ and I’m glad jupe-culottes* are back in fashion. I remember my mum wearing them to go to work when I was a teen. It’s a great option if you’re not comfortable showing off your legs in denim shorts and they are usually very flattering. I love this chambray version for the beach and this culotte (jupe-culotte whatever) from Hush is a bit longer. This colourful Cara skirt looks great too! *I know you call them culottes in …
