In addition to our good friend George Keburia, yet another creative duo hailing from this part of the world has popped up on our radar and now, there’s no

Using yellow in interiors

In the past I have been opposed to yellow in general, speaking out against it and then only mildly in favor of it in posts past. Generally speaking I’m not one to get excited about bright colors, but what’s the point of an opinion if you can’t change it? Lately I’ve seen more golden mustard yellows and I am really warming up to the look, especially when paired with another warm neutral like a pale brown or taupe.

Above is pictured a project by Claude Missir and features Synapse pendant lights from Apparatus Studio.

Gubi’s Nagasaki chairs with yellow seat cushions.

A collage of interior pieces in mustard yellow including:

A bathroom with an amazing yellow sink and toilet.

I’ve also gathered a few more favorites in this golden yellow shade below, including a non-interior piece, a dress by Lauren Manoogian that is just the perfect warm color for Spring.

Trend: Gold Jewels

Once a strong believer of less is more, especially when regarding the wearing of jewellery, I’ve recently found myself expanding my gold jewellery collection (which may or may not already include one too many statement earrings).

INTERIOR / HO HO HO

So, I’m pretty excited for the holidays. Before I had Enzo I actually never decorated our home. But you know, when you become a mom, you get all soft and all.. ;) But I have to say it’s now my favourite thing to do; buying a tree together, decorating the house and have Christmas breakfast for with just the three of us. And with my black and gold obsession, it should not come as a surprise that my Christmas decorations are any different. Eventhough I didn’t had the time to buy any new decorations, I did receive a surprise box from Blokker with all kinds of Christmas decorations. I just can’t get over that golden cutlery. LOVE it! I’m super happy with how my table turned out, it feels like a little party that’s going on in my dining area. During the holidays it just needs to pop! Can’t wait for Christmas morning! Unwrap gifts and have breakfast with my own little family. Thanks, Blokker, for saving our Christmas breakfast with all the golden interior goodies! And, to all my readers: ENJOY the holidays!

Hello on my favourite Friday of the year: Black Friday. I mean, who doesn’t love shopping with a discount just because it’s Friday, right? I’m all for it. And speaking of favourites: today’s post is all about my latest obsessions: 1. black marble 2. golden details. 3. 1 and 2 in one. Before I was a huge silver lover, and never even wore golden jewelrey. But that have completely changed. So today I’m sharing a couple of my favourite golden items from this moment: like the Cluse La Roche watch, which have a golden case and not to mention that black marble dial. Loving it! Other favourites are – of course – my Chloe Faye bag, Prada sunnies with golden bridge, Mimi Et Toi golden necklace and the Balenciaga Derby boots. Looks all perfect together!

BEAUTY / ONE MILLION

It’s golden! One of my favourite perfumes of this moment: Pacco Rabanne’s Lady Million. A golden bottle in the shape of a diamond. What’s not to like?

It’s just the perfect finishing touch after getting all dressed up and doing your ‘going out’ make up. Or is that just me? Having a fragrance for every occassion or part of the day?
