happy Friday and happy NEW YEAR!

I can’t believe this is the last happy Friday post for this year. 2016 has been pretty incredible filled with new interior design projects, our little company growing (so tons of work and trips) and I’m super thrilled to start this new year and see what 2017 has planned for me! But first things first, I’ll be on a plane to lovely Phuket tomorrow night (which is perfect because I really don’t like New Year’s so I’m happy to celebrate somewhere between Rome and Abu Dhabi!)… I’ll be back mid-January but in the meantime, I’m really happy to take a break for a bit.

I wish you all the best for this new coming year!



happy friday


Happy Friday! I spent most of these week researching furniture, monitoring a kitchen remodel and get creative preparing design boards for new clients so I cannot wait to spend a quiet weekend (and hopefully it rains so I can lay on the couch, eating junk food and watching Suits the whole time)…

Here are 3 things making me happy:

A glass of wine in my favorite spot overlooking the lake of Geneva…


Pumpkins to carve and cook!


Fall colors…


merry Christmas & happy New Year y’all!


While sitting in the train traveling to my parent’s place, I started reflecting on this year that has been challenging but also really really great… atelierBOEMIA is slowly but surely getting attention (and I cannot wait to show our products at NY Now in January), I moved into a cool big apartment that I redesigned like we wanted, found some great interior design clients and most importantly, I have a wonderful supporting family and friends that believes in me so I feel pretty blessed and I’m thankful for all of this. 2016 is going to be a great year I’m sure and I cannot wait to embrace it!

Here are some of my favorite pictures of this past year…

I wish you and your families a merry Christmas a happy New Year! I’ll be back on Monday January 4th, relaxed and ready with fresh ideas to share with you!
