SPEED DATING DECORATION

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

You would like to change your home interior, make it great? You keep rethinking the setting, the colors, the style, the furnitures paint, ikea hacks… OK, seems like you have been over inspired by Pinterest too.

A 30min decoration consult with Nurra et Jean-Baptiste, 2 friendly architects from Mism will give you a clear idea just for your home. Nurra et Jean-Baptiste had the great idea to travel around France with their cool caravane where they welcome you on board for a decoration consultation. Bring pictures, measurements and anything that can help them to visualise your room. They will draw a squetch and follow-up on the consultation by sending you a recap of their advises. Great, no ?

I will go to the Strasbourg stop as this is the closest to Zurich and combine it with a french shopping afternoon:-) (Any shopping tips in Strasbourg ?)

As this decoration road show is still a project being crowd funded at the moment, and if you also love the project, help Nurra and Jean-Baptiste in financing their project to make sure they will make it to Strasbourg, all details on Ulule !

I have been looking for a new coffee table and curtains for the baby room. Here the list of the sites where I found inspiration and our new table, of course all of them deliver to Switzerland.

Made in design offers a great selection for every rooms and style, very contemporain. There are also special sales.

Made has original furniture design at affordable prices thanks to a new buying concept imagined by a team based in Soho, London. It also has a selection for kids.

With the app Hooz, you can search by room, buy articles and find the local company that can make your decoration project come real. You can change your country in the setting but if you are looking for inspiration the US one will give you the most ideas.

La Redoute has also very nice products at very reasonable prices and the delivery is for free. The swiss version Laredoute.ch has now a real assortment for home, finally !!

For kids and baby rooms, smallable and decobbb are great to inspire and deliver at home all you need for baby. I am spending hours on it. For those like me living in Switzerland, yadayada.ch is also quite nice, they have a lot of products from numero74.

The Ikea hackers will like Superfront where you can get handles, feet, knobs , cover, top and other things to hack ! And it is a Swedish company (photo)!

On Smart Tiles I found Metro peel and stick tiles (photo).

Athens !

Tags

Next month my precious friend will be leaving Paris and the European old continent to start a new life with her American boy in San Francisco. We decided to meet in Athens to enjoy all the things we like to do, kind of a last week-end before she flies away.

As planned, and after a 50 min taxi ride from the airport, we met on a Friday night directly at the hotel. We stayed at the Ledra ex.Marriot Hotel which we chose for its location, pool view on the Acropolis and fair price. We woke up the next morning at 9am, got ready and started the day with a fresh orange juice on the rooftop pool to plan the day. The pool was just like on the pictures of trip advisor, not disappointing, not astonishing. Two hours later and already a little more tanned by the greek sunlight we were ready to go to the city.

Impression: Beautiful daylight, warm atmosphere, soothing feeling, full-flavored cuisine. What a nice city ! We had a wonderful time in between the archeological sites, the jewels shopping in Plaka, the roof top bars with amazing view on the Acropolis, the spontaneous visits of churches, the search for the perfect spartiates shoes, the Fredoccino (ice coffee), and visits of museums. If you are looking for a city trip destination with reasonable flight tickets price from Paris and Zurich, Athens will not disappoint you. The food is also very affordable which adds even more flavor to the trip !

Tip: The Lonely planet guide Athens in 4 days was quite helpful to see the most in a long week-end time, we liked most of the suggestions and explanations (sometimes more interesting that the one given on the sites, too much about technical aspects).

KIDS FRIENDLY RESTAURANT IN ZURICH (meet with friends with kids with friends !)

Fork&Bottle

This saturday my boyfriend and I met for lunch with a french couple and their 2 years old son at Fork&Bottle. We had the saturday Gastropub menu which offers pretty good british style cuisine. We also liked the friendly atmosphere and can imagine it being a nice place to chill in summer as there is plenty of green area around as well as a beer garden. The prices are reasonable especially if compared with average high prices in Zurich. If you are looking for a kid friendly place to meet up with friends around honest food, Fork&Bottle will not disappoint you. Next time we will try the sunday brunch with homemade blueberry pancakes !
