Modernize & Loving Faux Fur

I have been loving faux fur details for home decor and especially faux fur blankets. They are perfect to spice up any space, especially bedrooms and living rooms.

I have collaborated with Modernize which is a super nice website that provides solution for home renovation, decor and DIY. Here is their view on faux fur blankets that I completely agree with! Hope you enjoy.

Trend Alert: Faux Fur Blankets

Written by Jane Blanchard
Winter is here, and the perfect home accessory this season is a faux fur blanket! Fur has always
been a classic look that represents warmth and brings a sense of luxury to any room. It’s a fast
growing trend in both the high fashion runway and home decorating. Whether you are updating a vintage living room, or finding a winterizing accent for an ultra contemporary bedroom, or even adding that extra touch of coziness to your shabby chic reading nook, fur has something for everyone.

One of the biggest benefits to fur is that it comes in so many colors, all in natural tones that complement any color scheme! Faux fur can be solid or imitate the natural fur patterns of your favorite animals. With all the available options, it’s not hard at all to find the look to match your already existing pieces.

Take variety to the next step with a range in lengths! Do you want a short and fuzzy feel? Thick and luxe? What about cozy and shaggy for the perfect shabby chic feel? Faux fur can be found in many styles, giving you a ton of options to express yourself.

One of the easiest ways to incorporate your faux fur blanket into your living room is to drape it. Like pictured above it brings texture to any furniture piece. It’s absolutely perfect for curling up with a book and mug of hot chocolate in front of a fireplace. When the snow falls, you’ll know that you’re nice and cozy with your blanket.

The most obvious place to put a blanket is in a bedroom. Never fear, faux fur can still be unique! It’ll be a nice break from everyday flannels and quilts and bring a glamorous feel to any bed set. Faux fur is also for the romantic, bringing a soft feel that sets the perfect mood for a nice long cuddle session. Whether you are using the blanket as an accent or covering your entire bed, fur will keep you super cozy at night.
Tip: Pair it with a cozy knit blanket for added texture.

So what happens when the winter season is over? Faux fur blankets will still look fabulous outside. It’ll ward out the cold on those breezy spring days where you want to bask in sunshine even though the temperature might not be ideal. Fur can add some fun to the smooth and sleek textures typically found in outdoor furniture. When the weather gets warmer, you can move your favorite setup right outside to your porch and enjoy the fresh scents of spring!

Lacoste Live Faves <3

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all having a wonderful day. As some of you may know I absolutely love Lacoste brand. They had me way before their ad featuring Disclosure (oh that ad.. let’s go back for a sec here) that let’s be honest was pretty much DA BOMB. The staging and the idea are absolutely wonderful and the message is deep and beautiful.

Anyway, today is not for me to go back on that ad but to share how much I loved Lacoste Live FW14 collection. What I loved about it in a few words? It has the right amount of prep and sport chic. I mean come on, what could I want more than this?

All pics are wether from the website or from the shooting of the lookbook. I think they’re absolutely stunning and highly recommend you to pop onto Lacoste website because they really have amazing items and wonderful gift ideas for the Holidays.

L’Art du Basic – PARIS

Priorité au français car aujourd’hui on parle NATIONAL, les enfants.
Si vous me suivez sur Instagram, vous avez déjà dû apercevoir ma petite vidéo de balade jazzy dans Paris. Ce weekend dans un élan de spontanéité j’ai pris mon petit sac et mon appareil photo et j’ai fais un petit tour de quartier à la découverte de nouveaux magasins, concepts, cafés, décorations et j’en passe.

Surprise du jour bonjour, je tombe sur l’Art du Basic, que je ne connaissais pas et LA – sous le charme. Total.

Je pense qu’il est inutile de revenir sur ma folie du minimalisme, le voyage à Copenhague qui a changé ma vie…On le sait tous maintenant. En tout cas, j’ai bien évidemment flashé sur ce magasin pour son look très clean, ses coupes nettes sans être trop classiques, des excellents tissus, et ce je ne sais pas quoi qui rend toute la collection mystérieuse avec une touche tomboy (tout moi donc ;) ). Vraiment vraiment sympa! Bravo pour cette collection!

French brand featured on the blog today.
If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen a short video that I filmed while wandering around Paris last Sunday. I had an amazing – very spontaneous day, where I grabbed my bag and camera and started walking around and taking some snaps here and there, discovering new stores, concepts, coffee shops, decoration and so on.

One of my biggest surprise was stubling upon l’Art du Basic, that I did not know before and OH MAN – that was a lovely discovery.

I really think it’s useless to go back to my love for a good minimal look or to how much my trip to Copenhagen changed my life (well, almost!). In any case I absolutely loved that brand. It has wonderful clean cuts without beeing too classic, fine fabric, and that little something that adds some mystery to the collection with a hint of tomboy vibe (100% me ;) ). Very very nice concept. Congratulations!

Hoje decidi falar-vos de uma marca francesa.
Se já me seguem no instagram, devem ter visto o pequeno vídeo que publiquei este Domingo em que estava a passear pelas ruas de Paris. Passei um dia muito giro e espontâneo, foi só pegar na carteira e na maquina e tirar fotos a todas as coisinhas giras que via como novas lojas, conceitos, cafés, decorações natalícias entre outros.

Uma das coisas que se destacou nessa tarde foi a descoberta da loja L’art du Basic que não conhecia de maneira alguma.

Penso que não é preciso voltarmos a falar da minha Paixão pelo estio minimalista e a que ponto a minha viajem a Copenhaga mudou a minha vida (ou quase!). Em todo o caso, adorei esta marca. Tem uns cortes que são de outro mundo, super simples sem serem demasiado clássicos, tecido espectacular, e um toque de algo especial que torna a colecção toda bastante misteriosa e um pouco tomboy (ou seja, 100% eu, certo? ;) ). Um excelente trabalho. Parabéns!

 My personal faves:

I’m a huge lover of these deep V necks. So glamourous.  The off white dress has kind of the same vibe going, but in a more sutle way, easier for the daily basis and to brighten up the rainy days #whiteinwinter

robes

Regarding these last two, what can I say beside that I love how tomboyish these styles look. However the cuts keep the feminine aspect very present which make everything very lovely.

I never use the word swag. But look at that last pause. That is minimal/tomboy swag! Love it.

Plants, Life and Design

Hello everyone,

For today’s post I wanted to share some pictures that I have been collecting over the last weeks and that all have one thing in common: they evolve leaves (& you might have guessed, I’m quite the fanatic here). Hope you enjoy this little dose of inspiration.

FR

Salut à tous,

Aujourd’hui je voulais partager avec vous quelques photos que j’ai récolté par ci par là ces derniers temps et qui ont toutes une chose en commun: elles contiennent des feuilles (oui mesdames, messieurs, on l’aura compris, une fanatique est en train de naître). J’espère en tout cas, que cette petite dose d’inspiration sera de votre goût et vous donnera des idées.

PT

Olá a todos,

Hoje gostaria de partilhar com vocês algumas fotografias que tenho posto de lado nestes últimos tempos e quem têm todas um tema comum: folhas (pois, vão se apercebendo que estou a tornar-me um grande fã!). Espero que gostem desta pequena dose de inspiração e que vos dê algumas ideias.

Am I the only one who thinks that this wreath is completely appropriate even for non-holidays time?

jukavo tumblr* By Jukavo (tumblr) <– I think this is brilliant, an amazing DIY to customize your notebooks and cards, a super easy way to express that creativity (I think a huge canvas full of these little branches would be pretty cool) & the perfect doodle for when you are bored!

*By Amelabo <– Not a huge fan of that big wooden cross as a holder, but I must say, I love the idea of that very plain and minimal calendar with all the energy focused on that green pic.

Cheers!
