magnifique, fantastique...

YES! - I'm talking about my weekend in Paris...What an outstanding city!

We had a great time walking MILES while browsing and discovering one unique store after another. Here is just one and here and here for you to look at...

Of course, there was a french lunch as well...

and dinner was planned here but no room for all of us was available - so we went around the corner and enjoyed a wonderful evening Brasserie style. THANKS so much FRIENDS!

Much more miles were walked the next day at Maison&Objet.

What an eye feast!

As I was looking thru the pictures I took at the fair, I noticed this one here:

Amazingly it contains all color trends I had noticed while there TOGETHER in one scenery:

YELLOW (almost neonish)

DARK  OCEAN BLUE

SOFT CHALKY GREY

CORALL 

PISTACIO

TURQUISE

Even the patterns on the rugs and seats are trendy: modern interpretation of ethnic forms. Nice, but not my taste though... 

Unfortunately - and I'm very sorry about this - I don't know the company name. 

Out of many likes here are some of my favorites:

BITOSSI HOME

BLEUNATURE

DOMANI.BE

Are you inspired like me? 

Oh - and then a trend scout shared her insight with me!

What did she say?

Shhhh... 

I will let you know - in one of the next posts! Stay tuned... ;-))


Color comes!

19 01 2012 DIY

Oh, to hear that makes me REALLY happy!

As an inspiration for our living space as well as for jewelry making I love to browse interior magazines.

It's so wonderful to dream about all these amazing furniture pieces, floor and wall designs, decorations, tips, ideas...and OF COURSE it's also fun to peek how others choose to live via home story's.

Don't you agree?

So, right now many of my favorite magazines or blogs like ELLE DECORATION, DECO HOME or DECOR 8  share their color finds:

green walls with pink ceilings, beautifully over dyed oriental rugs, flowers and birds on sofas and tables, intense blue pillows, yellow throws....

I like, what Sabine Nedelchev - editor in chief at Elle Decoration says about color:" Color is a risk, yes,..., BUT (also) the chance, that you will be the winner with your color confession! A winner, who gains enormous energy, admiration, aesthetics, and liveliness." 

Just FANTASTIC!

I always dreamed about creating a bright and colorful jewlery collection and I'm glad to see it coming alive! 

For me, color is like a kind and friendly extra language: it speaks to you; it expresses your feelings, cheers you up, comforts, changes your mood, tells story's about you, brightens your day...

I love to wear a colorful piece of jewlery for all those reasons...

Smart in combination with soft natural clothing tones, always powerful with black and grey one's or joyful and exuberant with even more colors and patterns.

There is just no limit for colors! 

What about you - Do you have a (color) limit? 

And since it's Friday, please say hello to Steffi and Mr. Linky...

The innovation in natural cosmetics

Orinoco nut and Brazilian pepper tree
With its high-quality Omega-3 fatty acids, the Orinoco nut has a positive influence on the release of the happiness hormone, dopamine. The Brazilian pepper tree also promotes the secretion of this hormone. Among other positive traits, dopamine improves blood circulation, giving you a more radiant appearance and that special “newly in love” appeal. In order to give your skin the necessary positive impulses, use it when you want to pamper yourself or in stressful situations during a strenuous work day or when travelling. Feeling at ease with yourself and good about your appearance will enhance your radiance even further.

Mineral shimmer particles
The subtle shimmer effect conceals small blemishes and wrinkles.

Natural scents
According to aromatherapeutic principles, the mixture of essential oils, isolated from vanilla, cocoa and bergamot, contributes towards the «bliss effect» of this line of products.

Bliss cream

Designed for when you want to give yourself a special treat.This exceptional cream caresses your skin and gives you a marvellous sense of well-being. With
extracts isolated from Orinoco nut and the Brazilian pepper tree and an addition of mineral shimmer particles. Enjoy a radiant appearance with that “There’s
something special about you…” appeal. Use it before a rendezvous, a meeting, while travelling or whenever you want to pamper yourself.

be beautiful cream


I REALLY enjoyed watching their video because it shows an authentic expression about the companies appreciation for nature and the creation of their products.

Even If you are not familiar with 'schwizerdütsch', here is your chance to listen to this unique, lovely language while watching vibrant swiss landscape in Piemonte.

FARFALLA even supports families in need with parts of their proceeds from the 'be beautiful' line.

Sounds all just GREAT to me! What about you?
