lecanotrouge

lecanotrouge
I was so excited to share this post for you. Wanted to prepare it yesterday morning. Just that I spent all my yesterday with doctors.

I broke my ankle on Tuesday afternoon and got a cast yesterday. For the next six weeks.So instead of introducing you to the poetic universe of lecanotrouge, I was looking at neon lights.

But lets just talk about Laura and her friends. The moment I looked at lecanotrouge for the first time I thought: wow, such precious characters. So alive, full of stories and details.

And that’s what it is. Every character comes with a story. A beautiful story written by Laura herself. {you can read the stories in the shop with each product as well}

The best of Paul & Paula 2016

family breakfast

Two more days and 2016 is over. Already!

During our flight to Athens (where we arrived this Wednesday) I was thinking that it could be really fun to do a little round up here on the blog.

Feature the best/ most read posts for example. I mean, I was really curious to investigate as well. Which topics do you guys love? What are you interested in etc…

And it is a lovely way to finish the year and take a little break from the blog and social media. Refreshing actually.

RAM’N – respecting creativity

Ram'n

Today is a day where I can hardly wait to publish my post. To show you something really fabulous.

Marie-Louise and her husband Thomas are RAM’N. An innovative frame that lets you hang your kids’ art in just 2 seconds and can keep up to 50 drawings! Yes… I know… this is THE solution to all the ‘what to do with all the paintings’ questions.

Let me share the story about RAM’N, it is one of those that remind me why I started this blog and why I love this industry. The small, independent designers, brands… the ones that put so much love and passion in their work:

Toi Art Gallery

Toi Art Gallery

I like art. I like good prints. I would love to fall in love with a real big {probably expensive} painting. Oil maybe. Something I can imagine to love forever.

So far I have not found that painting but make myself happy with affordable prints. A home without art is like a home without plants and books. Impossible.

And when Karina & Viviana introduced me to their world called Toi Art Gallery I was in love straight away. A paradise with carefully selected artists. A paradise so nicely different to what you see everywhere. If I could, I would hang it all!

The two girls, originally from Argentina but based in California, wanted to focus on South American artists initially but expanded ‘world wide’. Great art needs to have its place!

Josephine’s first birthday

Josephine's First Birthday
Last week was Joséphine’s BIG day. She turned O N E. Yes…. one year ago we became a family of six.

The little extra wonder that entered the world. The sunshine that makes everyone smile. The little girl that we all love!

Was celebrated!

For parties I always love to check out Little Lulubel – Natalie has the best kits, inspiration and lots of little extras like party bags and dressing up stuff.

I wanted something a little soft and girly – the Belle and Boo kit is perfect, we just added a tassel garland {that truly makes such a great difference to the set up} and some cupcake liners.

We baked some very simple vanilla cupcakes – or better Romy did – something easy to eat and hold for the birthday girl.

See the happy birthday girl. This is her. Always happy, always smiling – pure joy, bliss and happiness. Amazing!

And that cute little pointy hat… believe it or not… she was wearing for every meal the two next days… love her to bits!
