It's been quite a week for us ! Last Saturday, for the first time, we hosted a cosy little event at our home + studio and it was such a wonderful success ! I was humming like a happy bee all day. We had nice music playing, home-baked cake to munch on, a little puppy running around (when our guests insisted we let her out of her room! ). I thought the place looked beautiful, it had rained the previous day and the weather was lovely. See :) I'm humming again ! Most importantly, we had a wonderful small crowd come in, and they seemed to love Olie, and really really made the day worth it. We brought in 30 floor lamps and only have a handful left with us. The signs of a day well spent.
Couldn't take any pictures while people were milling around ( or rather, I should have but forgot! ) but here are a few ! The next time we do one of these, come by ! We would love to meet you too.
See anything you like? You can pop over and shop it online. And of course, I'm always there to answer any queries at firstname.lastname@example.org ! Go shop ! We still have a few pieces in stock, so you might get them sooner than the website tells you :) And have a wonderful weekend my loves.
" Do you know what elegance is? It is not only what you're wearing, it is how you wear it, who you are inside. It is the way you decorate your house, what you surround yourself with, what books you read, and what your interests are " -Caroline Herrera
A sense of fashion or style, whether for clothing or for décor in one's home is personal in a way that allows an observer a glimpse into your personality itself. I am a deep admirer of classic, minimal styles - which leave room for easy change and a certain lightness that never allows for boredom to set in.
And then, I believe in accessorizing. Go crazy with some bright cushions that you can change around in a whiff and add so much character to a room (don't forget to play with shapes and sizes) and bring in some gorgeous lighting to set the mood. Beautiful lighting is something you need, don't underestimate it's sheer power. Tone down the walls, the colours on your couches and furniture - and voila! You have a home that is effortlessly elegant, and warm at the same time.
Here is some eye candy. Spaces that have that happy mix of colour, brightness and timeless elegance that we keep falling in love with !
Feel free to daydream a little, and smile in a silly fashion as you go through these. Lots of love x
