HOME: 'is a word that resonates deeply. For many people it evokes family, childhood, some of their most vivid memories. It is a word that brings comfort to the soul, that names a place we want to return to, that makes us feel safe,loved and nurtured'.
Anita Kaushal is a lovely lady who had the brilliant idea to do this book called FamilyLifeStyle: Home.
I love going back to this book for inspiration and it makes me want to have a huge home with lots of children running around!
The book is divided into 6 themes: Start / Live / Share / Nest / Bare / Find. Each theme is beautifully photographed. Here are few examples:
My dear friend Anais sent me 2 lovely books for my birthday, Children's Rooms London and Children's Rooms Stockholm by Jeu de Paumes. I wanted to order them for ages but never got round to it. Now, I am the proud owner and they are a great source of inspiration...
I am so happy today, Irene from one of my favorite new blog "Bloesem Kids" is talking about Famille Summerbelle. It means a lot to me as her blog "Bloesem" really inspired me to create Famille Summerbelle.
We will be her guest on her B:Kids "Open House next Friday. Don't miss it!
I just wanted to share with you some images of our School.
We live in a converted Victorian School near the famous Tower Bridge in Central London.
We love it there as we have some amazing view on the City and in particular of the "Gherkin"(Sir Norman Foster iconic building).
We have this amazing open plan living room with lots of natural light. Well, this was a picture I took before Ophelia was born. Now there are toys everywhere and the glass collection is up high on a shelf!
This is Ophelia's bedroom. I painted her wardrobe in dark grey and added some illustrations of branches and organic shapes made up of hundreds of little white dots on it.Here is the result. I found the vintage orange glass door knobs on a flea market in North London.
As I couldn't find a nice chest of drawer for her room i decided to buy one second hand and customize it with wallpaper samples.
This is it for today. I am off to pick up Ophelia at nursery!
