It has been a while I'd like to have some chalkboard thing.
This adorable play table has been on my mind for weeks, but wasn't a priority. I've also been looking on ebay for a little chair for Anouk for my parents house.

I hope you had a very nice WE! It's Monday again and I have many things to tell you.
This WE has been busy and productive and we are finally seeing the end of the closet-tunnel.
In the meanwhile, here are some awesome wallpapers for kids rooms.
For unknow reason, they put glass fiber in my house (ceilings included!), so I can't have wallpaper.
It's really a pitty since there are amazing and creative options for wallpapers, especially for kids.
So here is my selection :
1. Wallpaper from minakani lab
Via : Cush and Nooks
2. A classic from Graham and Brown :

3. Birds wallpaper from Hygge and West.

It's Friday again!!! Wouhou!!!
Last WE, this week and this WE I've been and I'd be working on our dressing...
Because I want to finish it! It's the very last time I work on such a huge project.
Anyway today I'm feeling uninspired/lazy.

Hello dear blogfriends,
It's Monday again. I hope you had a nice and happy WE.
We had a lot of snow and had to stay cozy at home.
Last week I tried the tree project in Anouk's bedroom.
It was easy and fast project, completed in three hours.
I'm totally pleased with it! It completely transforms the room while being very quite at the same time.
I purchased those adorable cushions in sale at Zara Home.
I knew Anouk would love them since they remind me of Richard Scarry's little characters.
The room looks very big in that pic, but it is actually tiny.
We used the same curtains as in the living room. It creates an easy flow in the house. I still have a pair of them and I am decided to put them in our bedroom too.
There is still so many things to do. Like buying a rug, installing the light fixture and... other projects I'll speak about soon!
Our Hollywood Regency Week is almost finished. I realize many aspect of this style hasn't been tackled. I'm sure we'll come back on that style.
However, today, I take the opportunity to present a blog that I like very much. I think it is very interesting to see how bloggers that are inspired by the same interiors, decorate their interior in a slightly different way.
Danielle Oakey is a very talented blogger and decorator. She can create very lovely and unique decors on a budget. She always gives very good tips!
We featured similar interiors on our blogs, like Lindsay Mens Craig's apartment or this house designed by Jessica Helgerson (just to give some examples), however, our personal styles are a bit different.
She introduced some Hollywood Regency's element in her home and used a very bright and happy color palette, so the result has enough drama and splendour. However, the neutral tones of the walls and of the sofa and the delicate use of the happy color palette create a serene an informal atmosphere that the scandinavian-interior-lover that I am totally love!
I'll always love a Eero Saarinen dinning room. The fabric used for the upholstered chairs reminds of the Hollywood Regency classic imperial treillis.
I also love campaigner inspired painted desk. The color is perfect.
Do you recognize the Chiang Mai fabric? I will love this fabric forever.

I love that reinterpreted every element. The result is sophisticated and unique.
What do you think? Isn't it lovely?

How are you today? It's finally friday! But the Hollywood Regency Week is not finished yet!
Today is going to by a mix of glamour and exotism.
Chinoiserie is probably a style by itself but is also a key element of Hollywood Regency.
A big hit is the Chiang Mai Shumacher fabric. This gorgeous fabric is the favorite of many bloggers and it makes lovely cushions or accent chairs.
