Who is the coolest now?!

Whoooo Hooooooo! I won! I won THE red vintage looking SMEG fridge! You can see the article here on Marie Claire Maison’s site (in french).Huge thanks to Marie Claire Maison staff, they made me very happy! I am already imagining how my future kitchen look like…I will move the vintage sign to the kitchen, it will go perfectly well with the fridge. I’ll make a more industrial and vintage look all in concrete-white-black-grey and red 🙂 Now remains one detail: to find an appartment!!!!Oups! Maybe shall I first get a JOB to be able to rent a flat huh?

Olééééééééé!!!Olllééééééééééé!Youpiiiiiiiiiii! J’ai gagnééééé le frigo au look vintage de SMEG! Vous pouvez voir l’article ici, sur le site du Marie Claire Maison. Un énorme merci à MCM, vous m’avez vraiment gâté!

J’imagine déjà à quoi ma future cuisine ressemblera…Je vais bouger ce panneau vintage dans la cuisine, ça ira parfaitement avec le frigo. Puis, j’opterais plus pour un look vintage-industrielle en rouge-noir-blanc-gris! ça va être chouette! Il reste maintenant un petit detail: trouver un appartement! Ou plutôt un travail d’abord, histoire de pouvoir louer un appartement!!!! Aie! :/

I love these kitchens…The presence of Smeg puts undeniably an accent of class.

J’aime beaucoup ces cuisines… La présence de Smeg met indéniablement une touche de classe!

vintage american sign in Caen

I found this sign in the flea market while i was buying the rug for my kitchen. I don’t have anything red in my home, and to be frank, i am not a red fan for interiors. But sometimes, there are some exceptions.

I instantly liked this one, first because of the nice typography, and secondly the funny feeling about finding in Caen, an American shop sign made for their Paris address probably looong time ago! How did it ever come here even?!

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!
