If you love color and mix matching you will love this playful house in Ibiza. Owned by a Dutch couple, it is straight out of a fairy tale with whimsical elements all coming in electric shades, against a clean white canvas. It is a dynamic house with such an eclectic mix of color and textiles, you truly feel the identity of the family in the creation of this home. Wonderful !
Isn’t fall just the best time for wearing stylish hats ?! If you like me, love hats this is the designer to look up ! Laura Apsit Livens’ AW16 collection ‘Puerta’ is fantastic. The collection is inspired by the colours of bright Mexican doorways, pastel colours and Matisse.
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 wanted to share with you some photos of the very talanted fashion photographer that I love ! What touches me the most is the tremendous sensuality in his images !
Born and bred in Paris, Lorieux embarked on a career in fashion photography at the city’s progressive Studio Harcourt, before swiftly ascending the ranks of glossy style titles such as Vogue Paris and L’Official during the 1970s, where his alluring, high-contrast view on life and style defined the era.
‘The visual aesthetic of Lorieux’s work bridges the optimistic exuberance of the 1970s and the cultures of new consumerism in the 1980s and 90s. Inspired by pop art, his signature photographs combine high contrast colors with graphic shapes. Working with some of the top names of his time, including Claudia Schiffer, Stephanie Seymour, Karen Mulder, Milla Jovovich and Linda Evangelista, his models bear feminine physiques that radiating a confidently overt sexuality.’ Alicia Reuter
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…
The 94-year-old New Yorker is the subject of “Iris in Paris,” a fashion exhibition and pop-up shop at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche department store that celebrates her famous and forthright style. The icon’s exhibition features 10 of her signature colorful, quirky looks. A dream for any fashionista !
“Apfel called Parisians’ style “chic and perennial but not daring enough for my taste.”

For me, her clothes are like pieces of art, the way fashion should be (but very seldom is) ! The collections embody her mixed cultural background and origins. You can feel her strong personality in the clothes, like a statement of her unique style and her inner world of imagination.
Her universe is colorful and diverse, a fantastic mixture of textures, styles and colors ! There is a feeling of bohemia and poetry in her creations, always close to nature and flowers. You leave with a sensation of strongness and of softness, both at the same time, probably a reflection of her true diversity…
