Milk interiors

I was waiting to read it since I saw an update on it in French blogs. I realized this week-end that I could download it here : the French Milk Deco magazine new issue.
It was worth waiting!
For this one, journalists traveled to visit family interiors in Paris, London, New York, Amsterdam, Tokyo...
From top to bottom above : a beautiful custom bed in Amsterdam in a bright bedroom where butterflies fly on the blue walls.
To admire in the design section of the magazine, this beautiful wall decor with a birdhouse lamp from Inke in a vintage Wall paper Tree.
To find great beds, the magazine went to Soho where the girls of a design book authors enjoy a big Indonesian bed and to Tokyo where kids still sleep on traditional futons.

And to finish with, these so Parisian atmospheres with hunt soft toys for the son of French Antik Batik designer,

and lovely antique finds for kids bedrooms in the Marais area in Paris,

Good news: The Milk team is working on a collection of deco issues. So now I just have to wait for the next one.

I already admired her ideas for holidays cards last year on her blog.
This year she has made a beautiful card easy to print. Enjoy!
The little sentence says in French 'Close your eyes and make a wish'...

Home made ornaments

Now that your christmas is ready, it's time to get some inspiration to add some home made ornaments and have holidays workshops with your kids. Have a look at these Martha Stewart great ideas.
I really liked these ones easy to made...
First she reminds us that the basic technique for all the ornaments is to bend a pipe cleaner in half and twist once at the top for a loop.
Enjoy first above this home made mobile, crafted from cookies turned in a simple, pretty decoration.
You can buy some wooden decorations and let your kids covered them with tinsel and glitter.

Colorful stray buttons can also be used as Christmas ornaments. Time to sort your old buttons...

And what a great idea: Use inexpensive aluminum cutters and turn them in ornaments.
Happy Holidays!
