To decorate a house / our house doesn’t have to be complicated, or even expensive … It all begins with a couple of little things here and there, that will make you want to go further.

The magazine “Maison Creative asked me to follow this path on four pages of easy and quick ideas. Here are a few examples.

Boxes and lids left aside were covered with nice printed paper. Or how a match box became a little jewelry box.
In the kitchen baby milk boxes have a new use.

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…

Useful objects who make me smile each time I would need them : a camera dressed by Rob Ryan, pencils with moustache to make fun, des kittens to finally find wich key is the right one, a plate perfect for holidays pastries and spoons which will spice up a salad by themselves!

This man makes freehand drawings in sand. With a stick as a pencil, he draws and walks for miles. He must be crazy because when tide is coming in, everything will vanish.

It remains pictures for us to dream and think that is what art is all about : being crazy…

Les minots

I’ve always loved children’s books. When I was a child of course, but even now that I’m not a child anymore.
I spend lots of time in the librairies youth bookcases. I try to convaince me that it’s for my daugther, but only a fool would believe that…

Therefore I am a huge fan of Les Minots bookstore ! I was thrilled when they asked me to install a temporary window (it will be removed on October the 15th). Here is a picture to catch a glimpse:
