Day 4 – fog linen

Hello! 

Today I am so pleased to present you the brand I teamed up with for today’s window. The brand is called Fog Linen Work and I have been a very big fan for years.
The designer behind the brand is called Yumiko Sekine. Her brand is mainly famous for beautiful linen, that are produced in Lithuania.
Her first collection started with only seven items. Now after ten years, Fog Linen Work produces a large line of linen products for the home and linen clothing.

You can see some of her products here.
My favourite one is not a linen product, but it is this beautiful metallic crown in the middle, and I am so happy you can win it today on my instagram 

Day 3 – les petites chineries

Hello everyone,

it’s already day three of my calendar and today I have invited Marina to participate.

Martina is an interior designer but also passionate about junk hunting and she really has an incredible eye. Here are a couple of the things you can find on her site. I love everything in her selection. 

I am very much in love with the pink vase you can work today on my instagram https://www.instagram.com/madame_love/.

good luck and see you tomorrow for the new window.

Day 2 – Sobomarket

Hello everyone,

I am glad I went live yesterday with my floral advent calendar. It was so exciting, preparing it and it is great now to find the way back to the blog.

Sobomarket

Today’s brand is called Sobomarket and is run by the talented Mathilde. 
SoBomarket is the contraction of South Bombay (a bit as we have SoPi in Paris for South Pigalle) and is the starting point of the brand created by Mathilde where she can mix her passions for interior and travel.
As soon as she can, Mathilde travels the world, and sells the products she brings back from her travel to India or Marokko.

Until the end of december she is not only selling online but also in a pop store, 14 rue du Chateau d’Eau in Paris – until the 3rd with lusaluso under the name un si beau voyage, and afterwards until december 31 with la seinographe

Here are a few pictures of the copper vase that can be won on my instagram today.

 

Day 1 – titi la tige

Hello everyone, 
I am starting my floral advent calendar today and I have a lot of surprises for you.
I have teamed up with fantastic flower and plant shops in Paris, but also for the non Parisian, you will be able to win floral prints from very talented photographers, some vases and also some floral and green books.

titi la tige

The first window in my floral calendar is the flower shop of one of my favourite florist in Paris – Thierry Feret, also known as titi la tige. If you follow my blog, you have probably already seen this article about flowered by I wrote last year. His bouquets are very colourful are recognisable at first sight. I am so happy he is opening the calendar and that you can win one of his marvellous wreaths. I wish you all a very good luck.

Papermint – a wallpaper workshop in the heart of Paris

Hello everyone,

I am back on the blog today, after a long silence. 
But there is something I would like to show you today.
I have the chance to live in a very lively and bursting with creativity neighborhood of Paris : 
The 10th disctrict. A lot of creatives live here, a lot of ateliers and workshops have chosen this still kind of “affordable” (if that word can be at all applied to Paris) area of the city. Yesterday during my lunch break I paid a visit to the lovely atelier of graphic designer Alexandra Bruel who created the brand Papermint a year ago. 

Flamingo by Papermint papier peint

All the wallpapers are designed and printed in the workshop in Paris. 
They have many different designs such as the flamingo (which the little miss would love) but also some more classical ones in the style of the 20’s such as this one called Han’i, which I really love in that colour combination.

I really love those dark colours in combination with the gold accents.Read More
