Thierry Boutemy is a burly man with full on beard/moustache who happens to be a florist (who worked on Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette!) and lives in a glorious house on an island in the city of Brussels. His home is filled with French and Scandi antiques, a lovely art collection and of course, flowers. Check out the whole story on Coffeeklatch.
Black and white is such a great starting point for a home. In this case it is white walls and BEAUTIFUL glossy black hardwood. (Gawd how I would love floors like that. DAMN CATS!) Here the owners added lots of colour and kid friendly furnishings to make it energizing and fun. Take out all the colour and add lots of wood, grey and brown and you’ve got another totally different vibe against the black and white. Easy peasy. Via Hus & Hem.
I thought this post might cheer Jo up and make her forget she’s sick. It is an apartment in a converted Victorian school house in London. With alot of re-configuring to make the space more liveable and bright, and some crazy eclectic designs, interior design studio Avocado Sweets turned this space into a super fun, totally creative and full of personality dwelling for the homeowners. Complete with Penguin book cover wall – look familiar Jo?

I adore this Vancouver home designed by The Cross Design. It’s spunky and feminin and ethnic and OMG the doses of pink throughout! It makes me love pink again. And makes me smile. This is a happy home.
P.S. By the time this post publishes, I should be an aunt for the fourth time. Congrats Jen and Dave! 🙂
