Unexpected mix of styles

I am usually not a fan of white painted floors (too beachy) neither nor a fan of Marimekko-esque prints (too in your face). However, I am absolutely loving the Westchester County colonial house of American designer Andrew Flesher featured in the December issue of House Beautiful. The mix of different styles and colours blend perfectly together – Love it!

Here are some pics of the house from House Beautiful  as well as some product ideas inspired from the tour.

Enjoy!

New Year Sparkles | Brillantines du Nouvel An

Hi folks,

I can’t apologize enough for the lack of posts in the past few months (after all, I’m Canadian and never go light on the apologies..!). Although the last few months were  amazing in general in my life, I felt a little discouraged and uninspired to blog. It’s also been a very busy last few months at work (bad excuse, I know!). Now that we’re heading into a New Year, I wanted to begin on the right foot and start blogging again, simply because I love it and find it the ideal way to express my creativity. Here is a New Year inspired post full of sparkles — Whether you will be be popping the bubbly at home or in a fancy venue!

Enjoy!

M


 

Salut tout le monde,

Je ne peux m’excuser assez pour le manque d’articles dans les derniers mois (après tout, je suis Canadienne et n’y vais jamais léger sur les excuses…!). Même si les derniers mois on été en général merveilleux dans ma vie, je me sentais un peu découragée et sans inspiration pour blogger. Les derniers mois fuent aussi très occupés au bureau (mauvaise excuse, je sais!). Maintenant que nous sommes aux portes d’une nouvelle année, je voulais commencer du bon pied et recommencer à blogger, simplement parce que j’adore ça et je trouve que c’est la façon idéale d’exprimer ma créativité. Voici un article plein de brillantines inspiré du nouvel an — peu importe si aller popper les bulles à la maison ou dans un évènement mondain!

Au plaisir!

West Village Beauty | Beauté du West Village

Real Estate alert! American interior designer Steven Gambrel is selling his absolutely stunning West Village townhouse in New York city. I bought his book few years ago and it’s always stayed on my coffee table since. I must say I’m a fan of his style – masculine but not too much, amazing combinations of colours in a tasteful way and chic but not stodgy.

For those interested to make an offer, the ask price is just below US $9M. Otherwise, enjoy the pics!

Enjoy!

Summer Yellow Fever | Fièvre jaune d’été

There are not many colours that scream more happiness and summer than yellow. Combine it with white and turn it into stripes and you get the most summer combo ever.

Enjoy!

Il n’y pas beaucoup de couleurs qui représentent plus la joie et l’été que le jaune. Combinez le avec du blanc et tournez le en rayures et vous vous retrouvez avec le combo le plus été à jamais.

Au plaisir!
