happy friday

IMG_9204

This week has been one of the coldest (it feels even worse in Milan because it is really humid) and I wish spring could be here already. These past days, I cleaned our dressing room, made some minor decoration changes, bought tulips (one of my favorite flower, always giving me a spring-y feeling) and somehow just wanted to stay in, cook and watch movies (btw, go see The Skeleton Twins – fantastic!). I am also really thrilled because atelier Boemia got featured under Product of the Day in California Home + Design!!!

Here are 3 things making me happy:

My new Polaroid Book and a postcard I bought in Barcelona…

The coolest handmade dinosaur candleholder my friends gave me for Christmas… (looks like it’s going to attack the Eiffel Tower from this perspective)

My pile of French magazine that I cannot wait to read in bed this weekend…

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

I am not a fan of Valentine’s day (way too commercial if you ask me), but I love all the DIY and ideas around it. These are not only super cute but also really easy to make (plus you could use these for birthdays or special occasions)…
