August is over and I must say it it has been a very nice summer this year. Unfortunately I hardly find time to update my blog. So sad… but I’m busy working on a new blog, where I would like to talk more about interior design and my inspiration. There are so many new ideas in my head and I hope I will be ready soon.

Until than, you are welcome to follow me on Instagram.

Traveling is one of my favorite activities. Since I’m terribly afraid of taking the plane, I go by car. Driving the highway is like meditation for me. The change of landscape, climate, people and language is impressive and inspiring.
I went to France for a while. I’ve been testing for you some supercute French bed & breakfast. Now I’m back, loaded with tons of photos, memories and a French accent. More soon.

Ps: This cute piece of art has been hanging in front of the b&b door, reminding me every day that I should turn into a permanent tourist.

Vacation is over. I’m back from a wonderful trip to Italy. Here are some snapshots from the beautiful countryside and my new friends, the brave cows.

Are you ready for a relaxing time out in Brittany, France? There is no better place than “La Matine”.
This little chambre d’hotes has been carefully renovated and decorated by the lovely ceramist Colette and her charming husband. The couple knows how to spoil their guests with a great breakfast, homemade jam and delicious crêpe. Make sure you have a glance at Colette’s ceramic atelier. She is doing beautiful outdoor accessories and pottery decorated with her own poems. I’ve been there in June just before the high season started. It’s so quiet and peaceful.  A romantic stroll along the cliff is a “must do” before you go to bed. Enjoy the dramatic sunset. Bon nuit!

La Surprise is a very cute and charming boutique bed & breakfast, hidden in the mountains of Grasse at Côte d’Azur, France. It has been almost a year ago that I have spend some very relaxing days at La Surprise. The hosts of this mini paradise are Steve and Claire from England. Claire is the queen of decoration and she truly knows how to make an amazing breakfast. Steve is the one who knows all the fun places and stories about the area and its people. They even made a little travel book with all kind of tips and ideas about the area. Love it!
