diy : wall art

I needed something for the long and plain wall in my bathroom (that is completely white and gray), I had already added color with turquoise accessories so I went for the same color composition.

I used some simple and cheap IKEA frames and I have been collecting interior design pages with patterns I like for months. In addition to that, you will need a cuter (or scissors but it’s a lot faster with the cuter and the result is better), some nails and nylon string to fix your art work on the wall).

Once all the frames are ready, lay them on the floor to see in which order you want to hang them.

So instead of the classic grey-brown-black winter (non-) colors, why don’t you try wearing white this year? It can be combined with just anything, it always looks chic and because it’s timeless, you can even recycle the clothes and accessories for next year…

Here’s a selection I made:

Coat H&M / Booties by Underground for Topshop

Bag Marc by Marc Jacobs / Sweater by Illustrated People for Topshop

Blouse Mango / scarf H&M

Top H&M / Rag and bone jeans

Béatrice Peltre is a french expat living in Boston who writes a wonderful blog filled with delicious recipes and beautiful stories. She actually made me want to start this blog in the first place, the pictures, the colors… whenever she publishes a new recipe, it just makes me want to run into the kitchen and start cooking!

Her first book will be available from February 2012 but you can already find most of her recipes on her blog “la tartine gourmande“.

happy friday

After a week of non-stop rain the sun is finally back again. I don’t know about you but the weather has a big influence on me, this past week, I continuously felt tired and uninspired so now I am going to enjoy the autumn by going out and maybe have a long walk through parco Sempione.

Here are 3 things currently making me happy:

Morning mist view from my balcony

My latest Zara buy that I wore 3 times this week! Love the python pattern combined with gray…

My gifted Jonathan Adler vase (that I adore), making autumn colored flowers look even prettier

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
