happy friday


I’m really excited to travel to the US from 3 weeks on Tuesday and although it is going to be work work work (we have to inventory everything and offload a 20ft container, no biggie),  I can’t wait to show our new products and be back in New York for the NYNOW fair!

Here are 3 things making me happy…

Spent last Saturday in lovely Yvoire, a short boat ride from the Swiss side of the Geneva lake…

pablo coat

Scored this beauty from Pablo in sale!

burger and fries

I can’t go one week without a good burger and fries (I ate the coleslaw to give me a good conscience)…

Happy weekend people!



happy friday


Happy Fri-yay people! I’m so happy to finally be home this weekend to charge batteries before a hectic month coming up! We’re starting demolition of a kitchen I’m designing on Wednesday + a lot to do with atelierBOEMIA (we are now in a hundred shops in the US!) and we also have to squeeze in a trip to Marrakesh in the next couple of weeks… so yeah, busy but that’s how I love it so I’m not complaining!

Here are 3 things making me happy:

Roses on our dining room table (+ new hats hanging on the wall!)


Finally made Hawaiian tuna poke that I have tried in Florida for the first time back in August. Super simple, super delicious, this recipe is just perfect and healthy!


I re-arranged my closet last Sunday, it now looks organized and I finally have an overview of all the clothes/shoes/purses I have (way too much stuff but I donated a good portion of clothes I haven’t been wearing in a long time)…


happy friday


Happy Friday! I really enjoyed this week, on Monday we celebrated Swiss National Day with friends, then my parents came for a couple of days and I somehow managed to do some work and start to get ready for my US trip (leaving for Florida on Tuesday!!!)…

Here are 3 things making me happy:

Loved being in Zurich (my hometown) last Sunday

sekford watch

avocado toast

My go-to breakfast/lunch avocado toast! Avocado, lime, coriander and fresh bred… perfection!

Happy weekend!

I saw a pea recipe in a magazine a couple of weeks ago and loved the idea to use peas (I never eat peas) and because it is warm already, I wanted to do something fresh… This super simple no-cooking recipe is just perfect!
