enfin, merci!

J’étais encore de passage a Paris pour 4 jours pour faire la demande de visa vietnamien. A part l’obligation de prendre multiples fois le RER B et le métro parisien pour me rendre aux services publiques et diplomatiques dans ces temps caniculesques, ce séjour était très très sympa! J’ai pu voir plein d’amis, découvrir de nouveaux bars et cafés, me promener avec allégresse dans mes quartiers préférés, et surtout voir des vitrines, des magasins qui m’inspirent énormément. Merci etait un de ces magasins.

Malheureusement j’ai pu faire les photos qu’avec mon i-phone car j’avais honte de prendre des photos…d’ou la mauvaise qualite d’image!

my home@marie claire maison

hello hello,

I finally did it! I could tidy my place and take pictures around and post it on « marie claire maison »s « bienvenue chez vous » (welcome to your place) page. As we are soon moving from this flat and we are kind of broke, it would be perfect to win either their lovely habitat ella couch Or the SMEG fridge!

You can see the entire house tour here and like it if you feel like it!

I’ll post the pictures after the contest is over at the end of the month.

my kitchen/dining finished…almost

Yaay, I finally have something that looks like a kitchen! For this post i only reveal the dining part. Since i begun re-painting the kitchen dresser, i also painted the table which was a classical old blue formica table. I bought the rug from a flea market which i brought to the laundry (of course) and collected some old mirrors.I changed the ugly lights we had before with those classical paper lanterns, and I found the crocheted cloth in Emmaus that i use as a curtain….

The blue closet on the background was supposed to go on the wall on top of the sink as we don’t have any storage in the kitchen. But We will move in 3 months from here, so we decided not to drill more holes. Besides, it made the spot for our cat.

I’ve found this plexi box with 3 compartments, it was thrown out by a cosmetic shop. It fitted perfectly my side table and provides multiple storage, exactly what i needed!

The box wrapped with paper like a gift that you see on the background is Maki’s spot in the kitchen. He likes to be with us when we are dining as though he is participating to our discussions 🙂

I am collecting all kind of prints and paintings with cats. This one on the fridge is quiet kitsch! I like it!

The blue shelve and the top of the side table is the « morning spot » with coffee cups, coffee machine,kettle and the toaster.

The two chairs from 50’s are also found in the street, the other two were in the family garage. I want to replace them by thonets one day.

As i am a big follower and disciple of Emmaus, they know me now and even make me little gifts from time to time if I make a big purchase. This trivet is one of their gifts. I like it although the ceramic is cracked.

bathtub lust!

In Turkey, people used to go the turkish baths (hammams) until almost 1980’s (i guess) hence the lack of these vintage legged bathtubs there…I wanted one of these so badly since when i saw one for the first time in my life! The other day, i almost bought one that i found on the french e-bay « le boncoin », then i realised that i don’t even know where the hell i’ll be living in 3 months!!!So i dropped!

our little guest flat in Kas

It’s not that I am a pretentious person, really…but I haven’t seen this small flat since 2 years and now that I am looking at it’s photos, I find it really nice! Worthy enough to put in an interior design blog, am I wrong?

The Tv doesn’t match the rest of the flat but those pictures were made to rent the flat 😉

We’ve taken those pictures 5 years ago when my mother finished the renovations in it…she did the painting of the floors, the tree painting on the small bedroom’s and the flowers on the bigger bedroom’s walls, the mosaics on the top of the coffee table, the kitchen’s wall and the terrace’s sofa with the top of the table.

just add Thonet

So here is the tip if you didn’t know already: to ensure a classy, boheme-chic, frenchy look, all you need is Thonet style chairs 😉
