This weekend, Spring passed by and I can really get used to this kind of visits! Spending my day outside, enjoying the spring breeze and dreaming of my last visit at the Merci concept store in Paris … I’m so inspired and motivated to turn into a gardener this season. Even if the zone of green craziness will be my teeny-tiny balcony. Have a green week full of energy!



Greetings from Palais Royal in Paris! I’m amazed and inspired by the freshly cleaned up facade and arcades. Lovely contrast and colors! I guess I need to clean and light up too. Who else is ready for a clean facade?

Oh yes! Every time we travel to Paris, I definitely find my happiness with Atypyk. I admire the two very creative and charming Frenchmen for the great ideas and the positive energy they spread. We have been friends for a while and I have to admit that I’m their biggest fan. You can find really cool gadgets in their little showroom at 17, rue Lambert at the bottom of Montmartre.

For everyone who isn’t in town, find your happiness here and shop till you drop!


For everybody who enjoys shopping as much as I do, the concept store Merci is definitely one of the “Must Do’s” in Paris. I am always carried away by the fantastic shop settings and the nice atmosphere. … and surprised how much money we can spend in a place like this. Great, that the benefit goes to charity projects and won’t be wasted!
My “Paris-to do list” will be continued! Stay tuned!


Waking up in Paris with this view and the great breakfast from Claire is something I can really get used to. So far we have had a very nice trip. I have to keep going! The sun is shining and Paris is waiting out there.

today some snapshots i took from the newest parisian wonderland MERCI, launched by bernand and marie-france cohen. it’s my new favorite concept store in paris. 1,500-square-meter packed with a very cool selection of décor, furniture and fashion for all ages. at the cute café you definitely get the whole package of happiness.

on top of that, the nonprofit store ensures all money made (aside from vital running costs) is distributed to children’s charities in madagascar and india.
