I heart...

... this sustainable house.


It almost feels as if it's going to take off any minute...

Splish splash

The weather forecast promises a warm week to come. I hop I won't melt in our air conditioning free office...

If it gets too hot I can always dream about these stylish pools.

Put the needle on it

One of my very first records was a song by the Smurfs... talk about childhood memories! I can remember the magic of gently putting the record on to the player. How it thenwould start spinning. And how finally, very slowly, the needle would go down, the music would begin and I would start dancing like crazy.

I also remember dancing along to the Grease soundtrack with my sister. Oh, who I'm a kidding, that was only a few years ago...

Espace Jacqmotte

On my way to work, I always see this apartment in the distance, and it keeps on fascinating and amazing me.

Imagine having a view like that...

Ring ring

My boyfriend has the greatest retro bike and it sometimes feel like a shame to store him in the hallway. If it would just rain a bit less, I wouldn't mind stalling him –the bike, not the boyfriend – in our living room...

Lovely mess

My place is a mess and I have no time to clean this weekend.. Luckily the following photo reminded me that clutter has his charms too.

The best things come in small packages

Sometimes when the real thing is too expensive, you just have to think.... eh well, small...

So here's a little – get it – tribute to miniature chairs.

Computer blues

My computer at work decided to throw a tantrum yesterday. He just started crashing my programs every 5 minutes or so. Today he's behaving like a little angel...

Weird? Well, I do I have a Mac PowerPC... Seems that, even in disguise, PC's are just a tat unpredictable...

My type of flower

I love when typography and product design come together...

Each vase in the Signature line is unique and very personal. You get your very own signature made into a vase!

How cool is that! Unfortunately my signature is a bit juvenile...

Sunny side up

I'm a bit late with this post since we had another beautiful sunny bank holiday weekend over here...

Since we don't have a terrace, we spent most of the weekend in the park, on the beach and in my parent's garden...

Hopefully soon we'll have our own little place outdoors but until then I'm going to drool over other people terraces.
