Hello to everybody out there! It's Friday and I can't wait for the week-end to come and spend some great time with my family! Here are a few links that I enjoyed reading or browsing. Till next week with some news on my latest DIY projects, byeeeee!
This article made me think.
Please, read this. I couldn't agree more.
Arianna Huffington's philosophy. Every woman should read this article.
I discovered a great blog on style and fashion.
A big thank you to Joanna Goddard of A cup of Joe for this reading. It made me really laugh out loud.
Every working woman should visit, at least once a week, this wonderful blog.

Today I stumbled upon this living while browsing domainehome.com which happens to be one of my favorite and fabulous sites. Isn't this living room just breathtaking? It is such a perfect blend of colors and natural elements. And it has got that touch of glam and sophistiction that can be found in the details throughout the room that make it look so polished and chic.

Today I want to introduce a blogger and an artist. Alexandra Matos is a young portuguese artist and painter. She is also the author of the beautiful blog Alexandra Matos Design, a blog that focuses on interiors and on wall art mainly. I am really happy to introduce her works to my readers and give you an idea of her creativity. I simply love her works, they are contemporary, colorful, original and safe, because Alexandra Matos realizes her art using acrilyc paint. Those who follow my blog know that I simply have a crush on that kind of paint because it is not toxic and above all because it is very easy to apply on canvas and on whatever base you chose for your wall wart. Have a look at some of her creations. I love the striped exagon, it would look great in a contemporary living. I just hope Alexandra enriches her blog by showing some of her art hanged in real interiors and demonstrate how a piece of geometrical art can adds value and character to a room. Alexandra, I can't wait to have a look at your pictures!

I have a lot to share and no time at all to organize ideas and posts. It's been a quite busy week. Hope you all had a wonderful week-end and a good start of the week. Here is a wonderful interior I spotted the last days that I want to share with you. It is just the kind of warm, bright, intimate and comfortable living room I would like to spend my evenings into snuggled up on the sofa reading for hours. The soft colorful cushions, the bookshelves, and the reading nook is what I call a heavenly place to me. What a pity that that of the Eames chair there is just a hint. Anyway, this living is just gorgeous. Those bright colors make me feel good. Don't you agree? Have a wonderful day!

Wishing you a fabulous friday (I don't intend to wish you a wonderful week-end, I am planning to share some other posts, hopefully) here is a picture I took during my picnic last saturday in Villa Ada, one of the most beuatiful parcs of Rome. There you find an almost wild nature, tortoises, natural lakes, a lush vegetation, squirrels, parrots, in a word uncontaminated nature and pure air to breathe. It's not far away from where I live and I just can't wait for the week-end to spend some hours in the midst of that natural oasis. Radiant orchid seems to be the natural trend of the season as well. Just take a look at this pic I took in villa ADA. Those trees and those hues are everywhere in Rome and in Villa Ada in this time of the year. I find that colort so springy, because it brings joy and warmth.

A few weeks ago Apartment Therapy published this New York home tour. It is a gorgeous little apartment owned by a couple of New York professionist. I am in love with every single detail of the apartment. the chalk board wall, the division of the living room where office nooks and eating nooks create a perfect balance of the different areas. Last but not least the intelligent use of the relaxing colors make it look so calm and elegant, well illuminated and functional. It is a style I would really like to reproduce in my house as well. The apartment is situated in Manhattan, but it has that zen and minimalist touch that really makes the differente. I am in love with all these elements mixed up together. Have a wonderful week-end!!!!!
