Some Green in That Bathroom

One of my closest friends have a gorgeous bathroom.

The main point: Italian shower. For those of you who might not know what an Italian shower is: picture a closet. Now a walking closet. Ok. Now, picture a shower. The Italian shower is the walking closet. I know!

I love it! I think one can feel a bit claustrophobic while taking a shower but not in these.

Then she opted for a minimal grey decoration, very spa-like. And last but certainly not least, she has a bunch of plants in the bathroom.

Outside the shower, inside the shower, facing the window, facing the mirror. You name it.

It does not look overwhelming at all and looks so natural.

I mean the whole atmosphere, the humid air, the little drops of water running in the shower, the splashes in the sink, all the products smelling amazing… Then when you look at the plants – they just seem to be where they belong.

It is amazing.

Unfortunetely I don’t have pics from her bathroom but I found several ones that pretty much translate this whole vibe I am talking about.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Do you have plants in the bathroom?

Gracias Mango

I have been holding this post for too long now. Can we PLEASE talk about the new GORGEOUS Mango collection?
I just can’t.

If you haven’t checked it out already, here it goes:

I have been wanting to write about it since I first saw the fall items in the stores but it was just too soon. I was still rocking summer – fall had to be a future topic. Ha!

Now it’s September, back to school/work time. We can focus on those amazing pants, blazers, sweaters. And I must say, with their clean lines and colors, they are contributing so badly to my minimalistic fever!

Cheers!

Habitat New Collection

For those who don’t know Habitat already, it is a -stunning- french furniture store.

This week, I was hanging out in the strets of Nice (see more here) and stumbled upon Habitat amazing front window. They released a new collection – very minimalistic with such interesting accessories especially for offices which is typically what we are starting to look for at this time of the year.

Habitat does not offer Ikea prices, but they are not much more expensive.

Unfortunetely I don’t think that they ship internationally. I know that you can order online if you live in the UK and in France but I am not sure for the rest.

Here are some of my favorite items & I highly recommend checking their office accessories.

I saw that they also have a blog that looks very nice . I will follow them – as we all know.

It is in French though so if you are looking for some reading in French, there you go.

PS: You can tell I particularly like oak and white, don’t you? ;)

Shirtdress Fan Talking

Just a quick post to share with you my LOVE for shirtdresses.

I am a huge fan of the effortless/tom boy but yet chic look. And when I’m looking for the effortless look and the weather enables me to show out my legs, shirtdress are my go to (along with short suits #ohdear)

What I love about a good shirtdress is that it is also very versatile.

“Be more with less”

Courtesy of Pinterest

As you may know from my previous posts, I have been all about minimalism.

Last week I stumbled upon this website that is all about having a “with less” lifestyle.

So far, I was all about this “less is more” vibe in what concerns beauty, fashion, decor but I never really gave much thinking about a “less is more” lifestyle.

So when I discovered  BeMoreWithLess.com, not only I got introduced to this new way of living, but I loved reading how to adapt it and the benefits it would give.

The last post I read there was “11 Surprising Things About Becoming a Minimalist”:

1. You will be friendlier.
2. Silence is more appealing.
3. You’ll make better decisions.
4. Happiness becomes a decision.
5. You can go without.
6. Live a healthier lifestyle.
7. You can buy when you are ready.
8. Simple is sexy
9. You can be more confident.
10. Develop a personal style
11. You can be open to uncertainty.

Curious? Read more there!

I am all about constant improvement in life, and I truly believe that it is important that we get inspiration from places like this to learn or at least be reminded of the small little things in life.

Homebar Inspiration

Inspo Board

1-2-3-4

I am in this particular phase of summer where everyone around me is  wrapping up summertime and planning for their projects next year. Although we are still in vacation, I can feel things slowing down a little bit and moving towards what I like to call “The September Vibe”.

I have been catching up with a bunch of friends lately, telling eachother our vacation and it has been great. And for those little gathering parties, I have to say, a good homebar is a must!

I decided to create this inspiration board to share how I would personally style mine. As you may have seen in other posts, I love a good minimalist decoration. So really, sharing my must haves in a inspo board was kind of hard, but I stumbled upon all these pictures which really are a good reflection of what you would be able see on top of my homebar.

Here are my personal must haves:

Nice Furniture: I found this bar stool on Chairish.com, a website that is specialized in vintage furniture. They have gorgeous pieces that I highly invite you to check out.

Fresh Plants: Having some fresh plants, flowers OR – a single jumbo leaf in a vase. I saw that on a recent post from apairandasparediy.com and I absolutely loved it. It is just so simple, chic and it really is not that hard to find.

Drinks and Snacks: If I was to entertain a small group or just a friend or two, I would definitely chill around the bar with a bottle of wine, cheese, some nuts and fresh fruit. Because I mean you know.. you have to treat yourself ;)

Cosy Lighting: Another must-have for me are those long hanging lights. I think they dress up the room so nicely, and if you want a more cosy room, turning all the bigger lights off and leaving these on, gives such a nice atmosphere.

How would you personally style your home bar?
