I’m litteraly dreaming of this house.

for the perfect kitchen. white le creuset pot pans. wooden work table. white flooring and ceiling.

and the cosy nest. cement tent. grey cushions. pretty reading lamp.

in exactly one week, we’ll be sleeping in our new flat. in London. right now, we’re more excited than jumping bunnies.

the fact that Christmas is around might have something to do with it as well. in fact, we’ve already planned to rush to a Christmas tree patch and get one, on the day we arrive.

it will have handmade ornaments like a paper garland, frosted cinnamon biscuits, and wool pompoms.

I used to have a polaroid heart (with the cloud polaroids) on my wall, but so much more options seem to pop.

do you have a favourite?

ps. and it’s perfect with this white RIBBA frame from Ikea.

here is the white wall I was talking about yesterday night. it’s not-so-white anymore. and I love it.

plus, the cabinet is one I’ve had for years and years. expect it was naked wood before, and now, after a little sanding and painting, it’s as white as snow. no need to buy new furniture.

I really wish I had taken pictures of my room before we painted the walls white, and rearranged the cupboards that surround my bed. it would have made a pretty sweet before/after.

at least, you now have a glimpse of the after. I still need to add some more pictures and inspiring paper clips, but so far I like it.

do you? and, for more inspiration, how does your perfect bedroom would look like?

inspiration, journaldreams, not as daft as they seem {2}

I’ve been literally stuck in bed for the past twenty-four hours due to a mean food poisoning. and although I’m starting to feel a little better, everything just seems blurry around me. just as it would in a dream.

and you do know how happy dreams make me. so here is my little happiness list for today.

• michel gondry’s movies are beautiful. I think eternal sunshine of the spotless mind might actually be my very favourite film ever; although, I must confess I really like the science of sleep as well. I’ve had it on repeat for many many hours, and I still can’t help but smile.

just listen to the very first lines of the movie:
tonight, I’ll show you how dreams are prepared. people think it’s a very simple and easy process, but it’s a bit more complicated than that.
as you can see, a very delicate combination of complex ingredients is the key. first, we put in some random thoughts. and then, we add a little bit of reminiscences of the day… mixed with some memories from the past.
that’s for two people. love, friendships, relationships… and all those ‘ships’, together with songs you heard during the day, things you saw, and also, personal… ok, I think it’s one.
there it goes. yes.

• • speaking of dreams, there is something I think about a lot, and yet don’t know how to formulate accurately. the thing is I’ve always seen my bed as a cosy raft. where all I need is reachable, and which could take me to the wildest places.

so everytime I see pictures of boats as bedding pieces – think tim walker – my dreams become a little more true. this time, anthropologie‘s catalogue just feels perfect.

• • • this beautiful secret hero of these poems necklace made by the talented duo behind lizzie fortunato totally looks like something I would make for myself.

it’s damn gorgeous, so gorgeous in fact that it does make me happy. has anybody heard of temperatures-induced aesthetics-emotion-enhancement? well, it seems that’s what I’m going through right now. it does make me a little sad though because I really wish I took more time to make jewelery. some day, perhaps.

• • • • as usual, muriel babery never fails to please me. after reading – or more accurately, savouring – her first novel, une gourmandise; I simply couldn’t resist her second book.

from the depressing statement about the pointlessness of life, I have the feeling that it might evolve into a message of hope and happiness. but, I guess I’ll have to wait until the very last pages. meanwhile, I keep writing down the sentences that touch me the most onto neat cardboard index cards.

I went away for a long time. apparently. and I missed it here. sure I still collected pretty images on my much-loved tumblr blog, but things just don’t seem right when I don’t post here.

but now I’m back – at least for today – with a different kind of post. and trust me, it’s pretty hard for the uniformity-freak that I am not to style this the same way I usually do. I guess the fact that I’m slightly tired with a cold and probably an emotionnal wreck from a recent break-up might have to do with this sudden routine-bashing.
edit: so hard in fact that I had to change the way it looked. I might be healing faster that I thought I would (I totally went against my maniac-ness though. nine images; not ten. big huge step!).

lately, I’ve felt overly inspired, and in need for constant inspiration. here is my top nine, in random order.

as I received an email about toast‘s new collection, I could not help but have a mixed feeling. I’m pretty excited about the happy warmer times that look upon us, and yet, I’m not really looking forward to the end of winter.

quite luckily, toast still has its beautiful autumn/winter 08 home collection running. if you’re anything like me, you’ll be grateful to make this exact moment last a little longer. spring will come soon enough, so will the light clothing and sun-drenched images.
