Bleu pétrole

As the winter is not over yet….(it is actually freezing cold today)…. I am wearing my cashmere turtleneck sweater I bought last winter at Uniqlo. It is very soft and comfy and I love the colour “bleu pétrole”. It is a classical in my wardrobe.

I could live there…

As mentioned in my bio I lived in Copenhagen and Malmö for 12 years. Yes time flies! Anyway….
While living in Scandinavia I totally fell in love with their style. “Scandy” people are very good at making their home simply beautiful, elegant, cozy!
I would like to show you the home of a Swedish blogger called Johanna Bradford (all the pictures here below come from her blog: http://www.johannabradford.se)

What to say??!!!…..just that I could live there….

Portrait of a non-frenchic woman: Malene Birger

I have big respect for people who start things from scratch… who create something wonderful out of nothing…who are passionate and visionary…who are courageous and hard-working…who stay humble despite success.
I have big respect for Malene Birger because she is one of “them”!
She started the famous brand By Malene Birger in 2003 and what a “parcours”!
She is not involved anymore in the fashion business but she started in 2014 an interior company called Birger1962 dedicated to art, interior, decoration.portrait

I have been collecting articles about her, pictures of her homes, etc…and she is such a great source of inspiration. I admire her creativity, great taste and style. My favourite piece of clothes is actually a top from By Malene Birger and I will keep it the rest of my life even if at some point it won’t fit me anymore….

Some of MB quotes:
You cannot plan success. Success is hard work and dedication with a constant focus on what comes next.”
Life without change is life without development, new challenges or experiences.
“I don’t just want to survive. I want to live

Some of MB fashion collection outfits:

Malene Birger designed clothes women can easily bear every day, quite affordable and elegant. Here below are some of  my favourites from AW collections 2010 and 2011.

Some of MB homes:

Malene Birger lived in Copenhagen, Mallorca and  lives now in London. Her two books “Life and work” and “Move and work” shows her homes decorated with great style and strong personality. I really recommend them!

“Through the pages”…

Through the pages“….of magazines is a new category and I hope you will appreciate it. As I am a big fan of magazines I would like to share with you extracts/articles I particularly find interesting, beautiful, inspiring…

This week I will start with one of my favourite magazines which is ELLE DECORATION DENMARK. The extract is from January 2016 magazine and it shows Cille Grut’s home which is a Danish stylist. I love the grey colours, wood and leather furniture and the industrial touch!
