First thoughts on Sweden

After Etienne’s overview on Sweden, here is mine.   It’s been only 3 days since I arrived in Stockholm and I must say that Sweden is not attractive and pleasing only because of its design approach. (Tho I love their food packaging a lot more than France) A quick resume : once again, Swedes are consensual and …

Moving abroad

Just a quick note to announce that I’m going to Sweden for one year ! (The blog is finally deserving its name, right ?) I’ll live in the district of Bromma (equivalent of Neuilly in France : residential, calm and green), in western Stockholm. The departure is after tomorow, I have still a lot of preparations to …

Quality over quantity

On my new venture to be minimal (I talked about this here), I figured out that if I wanted to buy less, I needed to buy better quality products. Yes, they last longer. And you love them more, right ? They are well-cut, crafted with better fabrics, and simply more beautiful. The more expensive garments …

Spring Vibes

It doesn’t even look like spring. Seems like we’re already in summer. No, I haven’t been on a dreamy trip during my vacations : this tiny heaven is located in Paris – well in fact next to Paris, nearby La Seine. Here you are in Puteaux, the city where you can find La Défense and …

Makeup Free

    How do you feel about going outside without make-up ? The new trend is to go all-natural (especially if you live in Paris as you have to look effortless all the time – the pride of not even trying !). It’s more and more glorified : this style has been massively vehiculed by …

Playlist : Running

Are you a runner ? If the answer is yes, you must be aware of the cleavage between joggers : to be for or against listening music during your session. Yes, I listen to music while I run. I can’t imagine spending 45 minutes running without a sound in my ears. And what can boost you better …

Chanel #460

As I said here, and I don’t like to invest a lot in cosmetics. But I tried this lipstick for 3 reasons : 1. Chanel 2. I don’t wear lipstick that much 3. I’d rather buy quality once a year than 3-4 low-end products yearly.     First, I have to admit that I never tried …

Le Saint-Louis

Etienne and I just finished a project we started with a french restaurant Le Saint-Louis. We both teamed on the photography and the website, but Etienne did the biggest part of photography and I did the biggest part of the website. Take a look at it here.   Here is a quick overview of the pictures and the website …

The swedish cup

Marble is for sure a new trend actually and I got totally into it. My boyfriend had the huge chance to go to Sweden after winning a big contest (PIDA – Packaging Design Impact Awards) and bought this cup in a swedish shop : Ahlens !     My wish to go to Sweden is still real. In …

Vanity

A project I worked on with Etienne during his design degree. The project consisted on writing an essay about all the aspect of life and death we wanted to talk about. We had to make the whole book by ourselves : writing, creating, printing and binding. (And the pictures)                  …

Playlist : Focus

Some people just cannot stand to listen to music while working (they just can’t stay focused). I personnaly can’t imagine passing several hours without any sound. Here is what I listen to when I am working :     And of course the entire album Mezzanine of Massive Attack.  …

Etienne’s Portfolio

Etienne is a graphic designer too (it’s not always easy to be a couple of designers, believe me*), but his skills are mostly based on print design, packaging and photography. That’s why he asked me to create his portfolio. Visit it here ! Then again, it’s very minimal (we almost share the same tastes in design), and that’s what …

Cacti

If you cannot keep any kind of plants alive, take a cactus. Or 2. Or more. (I wish I had even more. And a gigantic cactus too)               Plot twist : the one in the first picture is now dying. I don’t know. Maybe I just can’t keep anything …

Little Narcisse

I worked on this project for a SPA. Lately, I’ve been totaly into pastel tones (Edit May 2016 : I still am for just about everything except my business card) and wanted to use pink on a project at any cost. Little Narcisse came out well as pink and nude colors fits perfectly as a …
