Over the past couple of years, Scandinavia has risen from the shadows as an unlikely contender in the fashion field. The Scandi can throw a look together, a seemingly inimitable aesthetic with zero effort (or at least, so it seems !). Known for unique design, clean lines and unconventional silhouettes, dressing like a Scandinavian has never been so on-trend.
If you want to see the coolest Scandi street looks with your own eyes, you can’t miss the Copenhagen Fashion Week: the biggest and most prestigious fashion event to take place in the Nordic Region, held annually every February and August.
Here you have some Scandi looks for your inspiration :

Share your list with me, I cannot wait to see what kind of inspiration you have found for your new fall home !

I live just across the strait from Morocco and Morocco is one of my absolute favorite destinations (as you probably have noticed already !). Every single time I visit, I am stunned and amazed by the beautiful Moroccan interiors and architecture. And let’s not forget the tiles !!
Characterized by intricate carvings, arched doorways, and colorful fabrics, it should come as no surprise that Moroccan interior design has become very popular around the world.
Here, for your inspiration, are a few of my favorite examples.
I’m redoing my roof terrace and actively looking for some cool inspiration so I thought I’d share some of my finds with you ! A shallow balcony can be a welcome respite or a way to take in a summer breeze. When the weather is nice, a terrace or balcony can extend your square meterage, giving you more space for entertaining, dining or relaxing. However, it’s not only fantastic hours up there in the summer, but in the real estate market, outdoor space is gold. It’s expensive, it’s rare, and it can add enormous value to a home.
Here are some ideas to create an amazing outdoor space, no matter how small…
Photographer Philip Dixon created this Moroccan style retreat almost 20 years ago and it looks likes something out of a dream ! I am especially impressed by the magical garden and the calming water; the incredible river like pool running through the house. The inside/outside features of the house with the different spaces blending in together is another wonderful part of the house. This sanctuary reflects his unique vision; a finely tuned aesthetic of minimalism, natural beauty and ethnic accents.
It feels worlds away… Have a look for yourselves !
Is there anything more beautiful and captivating during fall than the colorful leaves ? The majestic trees that take the colorful shades of fall is pure magic… Why don’t we bring a bit of that magic in to our own homes ! If you follow my blog, you already know I love styling with nature. For me, there’s absolutey nothing better than decorating with nature itself. So let’s be creative and take advantage of fall’s beautiful colors with incredible leafy decorations.

There’s nothing better than al fresco parties in your garden or terrace during the summer months. I just love having a bunch of people over and why not do it in style ! It is the perfect occasion set up a beautiful table in open air, to decorate with fresh summer flowers, candles and original lightning. It also adds a lovely and enjoyable dimension to your dinner party and together you can appreciate a slower pace of life…
Keep in mind the lighting, especially if your event is going to stretch from day till night.
