Inspiration: A Word or Two

 









Je suis désolée,
I feel like I owe you all an apology.
I've had a nasty bout of gastric flu and I'm only just beginning to feel myself.
The days and nights seem to have merged into one this week; I'm lost.

I'll be back in the land of the living on Monday.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the inspiration:

A Shared Style







 Bonjour !

Saturday is flea market day!
No matter how much stuff we've accumulated over the years, I can never resist a trip to Sommières to have a rummage. I mean, you never know what you might find...

I love vintage objects with a soul, a history, a story to tell.
The kind of beautiful products you'll find in the Parisian etsy shop


They add so much character to a home, don't you think?

Yesterday I was invited to share a few photos of our main living space on Emma's inspiring blog


My instagram and pinterest followers will already have a good idea of my personal interior style.
I like to keep things simple,




Have a great weekend!

et à bientôt !

Mercredi Moodboard: Still Here


Be Still Now.
Enjoy the moment.

Look,
Listen,
Feel.
 
All is quiet
And calm.


Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!

Be kind to yourself, take five minutes to relax, do something you love.

Inspiration: The Little Things



  


 




Today, 
right now,
I am learning how to enjoy the little things.

That smile, those sleepy eyes, the way she ties her hair back.

Life is short, must rush, so much to do,
places to go, people to see...
I have a life you know!

And yet,
hold still, look around, feel.
Inhale the little things.
Deep, deeply.

Here & Now
'Tis enough for me.

Thanks for the inspiration:

Unsettled



  

 


 
 It's funny you know, we've been enjoying the most glorious Springlike weather here all week, but all of today's favourites are dark in tone. I must be clinging onto winter, or perhaps preparing myself for all the rain that's due to come our way over the next few days.

C'est pas grave...

I love dark interiors with lots of wood and found objects at any time of year, don't you?

Simple
natural

Mercredi Moodboard: Bring on the Sun


Hey, bring on the sun, I'm ready for you!
Beautiful blue skies here today, and I am loving every second.
My kitchen door is wide open and light is streaming in through the windows.
Ahh, qu'est-ce que ça fait du bien !

Have a great Wednesday folks.
I'll be spring cleaning and pottering at home with my two youngest this afternoon.

If you have five minutes, sit down and lose yourself in the beautiful, inspiring world of



simple, small pleasures are what it's all about...

Inspiration: Trace In Face







I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

I did. I spent most of my time immersed in art, both online and off.
I love that. Need that, should I say.

Browsing the Nordic Design Collective's site on Saturday I came across these unusual illustrations by Trace In Face. Today used to be Colour My Monday on Kickcan and Conkers, so in keeping with my desire to share and inspire, albeit with a more minimal style, I hope you'll enjoy discovering more examples of this Swedish artist's work in your own time.

Simple, quirky and intriguing with just a touch of colour.
Hmm, that suits me to a tee.

Bonne semaine!
