Parisian interiors

I already told you about the apartment that I love in Paris from the owner of Bonton,the Bonpoint little brother, Irene Cohen.
She has made for her kids rooms a mix of home made creations and beautiful pieces such as the decorative kites from Petit Pan. Published in the october issue of the very trendy Milk, these pictures of her interior give us a lot of ideas to be inspired :
Cute letters with the name of your child covered by a mix and match of colors,
A commode covered by Wall paper (here from the english Cath Kidston),
Your princess'favorite costume hanged up on the wall,
a feast garland to celebrate everyday...
so cute, so personal, so unique french style..

Cute animals from Clemence G arrived

The cute owls and hens designed by Clemence G arrived from Paris to Comptoir d'enfance. They are just perfect to follow your little one everywhere. They can also be used as a decorative cushion. Because of their handmade nature, each one is completely unique and different.
Clemence G, a Parisian designer, is known for its beautiful hand-made pieces. Your little ones will love her cute animals with their mixed colors and fabrics. Each piece is unique so do not wait!

Fifi Mandirac at home

Great deco pages in the french Elle magazine this week !
The journalists visited the house of one of my favorite Parisian artist, Fifi Mandirac.
l already loved her stationery, now I love her home atmosphere.
Bright colors,
the "luco" red chairs from Fermob in the garden that make me think of the jardin du Luxembourg in Paris,
a bohemian touch with embroidered cushions in the living room,
a touch of vintage with my favorite Eames chairs in the dining room

a touch of personnal decoration with tea boxes and colored items found in the flea markets that brighten up the kitchen,
some light garlands and hand-made decorations .... such as these flowers cut in her stationery then put in the potted grass ...
tout ce que j'aime !
She even found these cute women hangers in San Francisco!
To find its whole collection of stationery, go to my little boutique Comptoir denfance
And yes I am very proud to distribute her cards, notebooks and little stationery in Canada and the United States since last year.

Making off

The journalists of the french Marie-Claire Idées magazine, had a great idea: to share the creation of their topic "All the Wood", published in the latest issue of autumn.
You will enjoy the work of stylists and the realization of the "Prévert tree", the wooden wall and table.
A beautiful lesson of hand-made decoration... and poetry!
For images of the making off, simply click here

J-31: Get ready !

At one month from Halloween, Californian houses already get dressed.
Time for me to give you some decorating ideas for free or really unexpensive costs, seen on the Martha Stewart website.
To start with, some paper lanterns in pumpkin customs ....

... a bats'garland to decorate your fireplace, a door or a wall. To be made with black paper and models easily foundable on the Internet for free. It is also possible to alternate with or replace them by ghosts silhouettes or black cats ...

... a few cans painted with a votive candle inside ...
and don't forget small plastic spiders who climb around your haunted house !
