Adjeu Shabby...

I received very sad and shocking news a couple of days ago. My favorite interiorstore is closing!! I couldn´t belive it. Shabby started up 8 years ago after its owners, 2 cute middle-aged women had gone crazy at french fleamarkeds. (Yes, I can relate..) It´s been going strong ever since, and you can hardly open a interiormagazine in Norway without Shabby beeing strongly represented. But sadly the adventure came to an end, or maybe it just have shifted direction..

In this post I want to pay a tribute to two strong women who followed their hearts and their dreams, and through it inspired lots of women (myself included), and simply created a beautiful spot on earth! Let there be many more..

To beauty!!

Missing Paris day...

Today I´ve been longing to go to Paris. It´s been hard for a parisian at heart not to be able to visit her darling city for a while.. It´s actually been over a year since last time..what a horrific thought. I found this delightful pic in one of my favourite blogs - www.photojourneyling.com..check it out!! I find the green iron chairs SO beautiful, and they remind me of all the times I´ve been sitting in jardin de Tulleries with my Love...

I´ve brought home with me two old iron chairs from my stay in California..one grey and one pale pink..they´re gourgous!! I´m gonna share a pic with you when I get them home..

à bientôt..

Brazilian beauty interior..

I´ve told you about my love for out- of the ordinary hotels, and over the years I´ve been searching out a few in different countries. Well, one of the places I´ve found is this brazilian beauty...

This out-of-this-world hotel called Uxua is located on Brazil´s Bahian coastline. It´s in a little fishingvillage calles Trancosco. It consists of 9 1-3 bedroom houses, and they´re all built and decorated in collaboration with local artisans. Their values have led them to use traditional building methods, recycled and organic materials. All of this results in shere beauty..take a look:

The hotel is only a five-minutes walk to the beach, where local turtles find their home. Uxua places a high value on protecting the local flaura and fauna.
