natural and modern decoration with recycled wood

Bonjour! If you follow my Instagram and the blog, you know I’ve been traveling and moving over the past 3 years: from Paris to LA, LA to Paris, spending a few weeks in Biarritz in France, Palm Springs in California…but I FINALLY settled in my new home. No more movings. A home I finally can decorate and feel, well, like at home. That’s why I’ve been very excited to furnish it and I’ve been spending hours on decoration websites (the main one being, I confess, IKEA).

And even if I am NOT AT ALL a DYI person (it is as dangerous to give me a hammer as it could be to give it to my one year old son), I definitely want to try this decoration idea found on the French website Côté Maison: to use recycled wood pallets as decoration elements for coffee tables, beds, shelfs…check the following pics and tell me what you think about it!

Mother’s Day

first-mother's-day-love-family-time

HMMM this Sunday started perfectly…it’s Mother’s Day in the USA, so even if we’re in Paris, my love wanted to celebrate it. It’s an even more special day since it’s my very first Mother’s Day, AND Jules is turning 9 months today, and let me be honest: it’s not easy every day!

But, waiting that Jules makes me ugly noodle necklaces which I will have no choice but to wear, this breakfast in bed and flowers make up for all the tough moments. Now I can’t wait for French Mother’s Day on May 31st ♥

I love this super natural shooting, full of love and tenderness.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers who will read this.

Happy New Year everyone!

One year ago, I shared with you my resolutions for 2014, and reading it one year later made me laugh a lot.

One must say that, in one year, I moved, pregnant, from Los Angeles to Biarritz (France), to have my baby surrounded by my family ; then from Biarritz to Paris, and right now I am packing to move back to California!

So of course I did not have time to think about my resolutions; I had completely forgotten about them!

One year later, let’s take stock of the situation.

Christmas in Biarritz

Polka-dots-black-and-white-top

Last year, I was celebrating Christmas in Malibu in Cali, with my family who came to visit me for the occasion.
This year, we came to see them in Biarritz, a small town in the South-West of France, also called “Little California”, where I grew up.

It might not be Los Angeles, but the weather and the temperatures were very nice, which was ideal to shoot this Christmas outfit outside, on the emblematic “Côte des Basques” beach.

And the one who has mastered the creation of the Dreamcatcher, Karine Mancet, founder of the brand Land Of Dreams.

Sebastien Tellier – Ma Calypso

Premier dimanche à Paris, réveil en douceur avec le nouveau titre tropical et doux de Sébastien Tellier, “Ma Calypso”.
Un grand bravo à mon amie de toujours, la talentueuse illustratrice et photographe Valentine Reinhardt, qui a réalisé toutes les illustrations du nouvel album de l’artiste.

Pour “Ma Calypso”, elle a choisi une animation vidéo représentant la nymphe Calypso prenant son bain, dans un décor changeant de couleur à la manière d’un time-lapse.
