Happy Easter! We’ve just come back from a long Easter weekend in France. Had really good time with our old friends in Dunkirk. Of course it involves a lot of drinking, dancing and laughing… But more than anything French people are so good at decorating their home with beautiful Easter eggs, just like these ones I found at Food Ideas Recipes today. Do you know what I learned this weekend? Home is where our heart is – tending our home is a way to appreciate what we have in life. Yes, I am a bit philosophical today, but I think it’s true. Do you agree?
I’ve been thinking about warm weather and sunshine somewhere south lately. So I was overjoyed when I found this pretty house on Micasa today! The 4-storey house in Madrid belongs to a designer, Marta Corsini. She tastefully decorated this narrow house with charming home accessories and stylish furniture. Love the staircase with a lot of art prints on the wall, oh and the kitchen! These red cushions are gorgeous in rustic kitchen design. Colourful and bright – yes, this is what we need after a long cold winter.
Wow this is truly a great find! I was reading Nuevo Estilo today and found this quirky house in Andalusia. An interior designer Gaspar Sobrino painstakingly renovated the typical Andalusian house originally built around 1900. What caught my eyes were colorful interior decoration. Chaise longue in the living room area was upholstered with Ralph Lauren fabric. Walls are covered with unusual paintings. Oh and the dining room! Look at these chairs with purple upholstery. This is a house with unusual taste. Something to think about when you are fed up with neutral colours and white walls, don’t you agree?
Now weather is improving a little bit and looks like people started to think about decorating their houses. We need to do the same really, oh our old tired little house… Anyway, today I found this gorgeous apartment in Paris via Cote Maison magazine, which is located in a grand old mansion called Hôtel de Mortemart. Apparently there is a rumour that Marcello Mastroianni and Catherine Deneuve once stayed in this historic mansion in the quatier Saint-Germain. Hmmm so romantic. Now it is a home to Amélie Darras, an owner of children’s clothes company Moon et Miel. I love love love white walls and high ceilings. Entrance is decorated with beautiful tiles and colourful handmade cushions from Medina of Fez. Rooms are very spacious, so children can run around – very unusual for an apartment in Paris. OK, now I need to really start redecorating our house. Maybe.
