Inside my home


Unless you live in Holland, there’s almost no chance that you found those pictures of my house published in “101 Woonideeen“. This is why I decided to share them with you here. And I answer before the question pops up : no, it’s not always this tidy…

Thanks to Wilma Custers, Louis Lemaire, and also to Kim Van Rossenberg.

Snapshots (2)


Well, I am not going to let you look for the answer any longer ..
Only Marie-Laure found out what my role was in those 2 books : I was the stylist.
I have often been asked to explain what is this job about. In the case of those books (like for the ones that followed)
the purpose was to present nicely the artist’s creations.

Try to imagine what the picture would look like for example… taken from the top with different accessories (a black tray, a spoon with a red handle, and the whole put down on a wooden desk).
The atmosphere would have been much different.
That’s why each detail matters. Even the croissant you choose … That’s true!!! … Even the way it’s been bitten!

This part of my job brings me lots of joy!
It also remembers me when, as a little girl, I was used to create installations just to look at them.


But obviously, all of this means nothing without a good photographer

LTA just published two new books : “Paris Vintage” by Hélène Le Berre and “Kawaï” by Christine Nivet. I am not the author, of course I’m not the photographer either, and none of my creations is featured in this books…

So, why do I have to say about???  Can you guess?

I had promised to the ones who has no printer or a temperamental one, that I will find a solution : I printed the 24 patterns from my Avent calendar so they can buy it if they want…


Colours are bright and the size which is a little bigger than A4 (22 x 30 cm) will take part in any DIY project…


I was thinking to use them to cover my books. I found this idea on this picture. I am sorry because I can’t remember where it comes from…

I finally found out that this picture comes from this lovely blog. Thanks to Tove !

Crazy Liza Lou !


Years ago, I fell in love with a work of art (a tribute to housewife’s work) crazy as much as beautiful
I wished to show you some picture since the day I started that blog, but I couldn’t remember the name of the artist.


And then … while wandering on the net, I found it ! The angel who has had the patience to make this masterpiece has a name which sounds like a doll : Liza Lou!

It brought me a answer to a question I had since then: how long did it take her to make her “Kitchen”? The answer is 5 years !!!  5 years covering up everything in this room with tiny glass pearls!


Luckily, after the success of her first work, she found some volunteers to follow her in  her  “Backyard“…

(Français) Vive la galette !



I know that twelfth-night was yesterday, but it’s not a reason to forbid ourselves from eating the Twelfth Night cake, don’t you think ?

Here is my contribution to the party (with Clementine’s help, who just finished her intership) : colourful crowns for every heads !

Thank you so much for all your advices on the subject “fabrics made by  Fifi”! It’s going to take a while, I am going to have to make some choices, find some money  (or a sponsor who knows ?) but I am dying to do them as much as you do…

Here we go!


It’s decided : this year will mean new projects! I am not going to reveal everything to you today, but there is one close to my heart, that I would like to share with you : I’d love to create fabric’s designs ..


Great ! you’re going to say, (I hope !) but which one ??? Flowers ? Dots ? What colour ? Which one of my pattern would you like to see on a fabric ? What would you use it for ? I’d like to know what you are thinking about all that…
