Mondays are for fresh starts! So what if we begin the week with some new ideas and new inspirations? Now and then, we all need a “reboot”.
As I collect all pictures and articles that catch my eyes or remind me of special moments, I tend to spread them all over my apartment. To bring some kind of organisation, I have now decided to dedicate a wall to these precious pieces. This moodboard in constant evolution enables me to find the basis for my new projects.
While some of you stand in front of a white page, I’m looking at this white wall where I’m about to place the foundations of this new week.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Coffee is my early morning saviour, but not only! It is also an energy-booster during my working sessions and a cosy moment that I like to share with my friends. Lately, I’ve found myself going to the same coffee shop again and again: the Culture Café.
Located within the FNAC building in Lausanne, its offers a quiet and friendly atmosphere where I can work or meet up with friends and colleagues. Partnering with the roaster Has Bean, they serve delicious coffee, of course.
All sweets and snacks for breakfast and lunch are homemade with quality ingredients and freshly baked every morning. On Saturdays, it also becomes a brunch destination. A simple delight to enjoy without moderation.
I let you guess where I am heading to… Happy Friday to you! Continue reading
I hereby declare the migration season open. As summer evenings spent on the balcony are distant memories, it is officially time to migrate inside. To survive the winter, a few interior arrangements may be needed.
This year, I have found inspiration in the apartment designed by INT2 Architecture studio. More than a green spot it is an herbs & spices wall that has been created. Bringing the greens inside definitely adds a fresh and lively touch, even in the middle of the winter. On top, hints of colours – as accessories and on the wall – enlighten the sleek furnitures and warm up the atmosphere.
Let’s get ready to fight against the greyness!
Last Thursday, I had the chance to celebrate the opening of the new Aesop store in Bern. In a friendly atmosphere, I was warmly welcomed by the team and had the opportunity to indulge myself in a beauty experience.
In the heart of the Swiss capital, the boutique has been beautifully designed by German studio Einszu33, respecting the heritage-listed site that it occupies. The light filtered through the large windows enlightens the perfect blend of crafted elements and industrial components. With a gentle colour palette and refined lines, it sings of harmony and simplicity.
This quiet oasis offers a large range of skin, hair and body care. Cleansing, refreshing, soothing, moisturising, toning, treating… timeless essentials that I like to mix together. Indeed, I can create personalised solutions, as I need; an extra dose of scrub for an after-beach treat and one more oil drop for a winter balm.
And for now, it’s all about hydrating, but I may also need the travel pack for the coming weeks.
An address to remember for your next stay in Bern.
Back to basics ! While this statement is about to become a global call, I’ve recently found out that Switzerland also has its general store for basic supplies. I’m pleased to present you today the Merchant & Co., an online reference for high quality essentials.
Carefully selected, the wide range consists of home and office accessories as well as organic skincare. Promoting ethical values, the Merchant & Co. offers useful items made of noble and durable material meant to please as much as to last.
This timeless selection combines functionality and aesthetics to beautifully simplify your life.
While I was looking for a winter adventure, I discovered this amazing hotel located in the North of Sweden. In the heart of the boreal forest, the Treehotel offers the perfect setting for a nature experience.
Built in trees, the design cabins – Mirror Cube, Birds Nest, Blue Cone or Dragon Fly – are unique and comfortably equipped. These quiet tree rooms with panoramic view over the Luleå River valley enable to enjoy the tranquillity of unspoiled nature.
After a snowshoeing hike or a northern light tour, a stop in one of the tree saunas seems inevitable before reaching your nest. It is definitely worth braving the winter cold.
So, what’s your plan for this winter?
While it is getting cold and dark outside, I’m longing for more cocooning time at home. To help us survive wintertime, Nordic experts have carefully prepared the season must-have.
Welcoming you home after a long day or offering you a cosy Sunday morning with a cup of coffee and your favourite magazine, these blankets are not only warm and soft, but they are also perfect home accessories, to be chosen with care.
For all DIY enthusiasts, let’s get inspired by Loopy Mango’s homemade creations.
Wrap it around you and enjoy autumn!
