saturday morning scrapbook

happy saturday! it’s pretty early and i’m just messing around on my computer since crashing at like 9pm last night. just going thru some pics looking for inspiration for the new casa.

it’s going to be beachy but of course i can’t resist my frenchy foufou

i love this collection of opaque/transparent marble and alabaster

there may be lucite

definitely looking forward to being crazy organized

and setting up  lots of nooks and niches

and shelves, shelves shelves!

these just some pretty bedroom ideas. i have absolutely no furniture at all.  now i see why everyone stresses over choosing the right sofa.

the bath isn’t marble but it is all white

and it’s about the details anyway

did i mention getting organized? check. did i mention shelves?

mostly i want to live outside so hopefully this last shot will be the closest to the truth!

the building is allowing tennants to remove the wall to wall and put our own floors so i’m doing wide white-washed wook planks. more  once i get the keys.

have a great saturday, i better quit goofing off!

hi guys! i just wanted to pop back and show you the chairs up on ebay right now cause i know you’ll appreciate them!

      oh you doll! well i’ve looked at this building a couple times but the wall to wall was always the dealbreaker. now they’re letting me put in my own from one of theirs or my own. it’s only 600 square feet so i’ll splurge even tho it’s a rental.

    Such an inspirational group of photos ! I am hoping to be extremely organized in my ne space too ! And I am in the process of picking new furniture, art and all the other fun stuff to fill in the missing pieces to what I already have! That is so cool that you get to put in your own flooring…it will really make all the difference. My new place will have nice wide plank hardwood and I am very excited !!

    Hi Claudia,
    It’s been a while since I’ve been reading your beautiful postings (I’ve been so busy making new quilts and you know what it’s like to become fanatical about French stuff lol). But I’m back this morning wading through everything I’ve missed and it’s still the same….inspirational and truly gorgeous. Have a great day, Therese

    I’m so happy for your new beginnings. I know it’s going to be perfect. I love your positive and prosperous mentality – your visualization and “just do it” attitude.


    • the paris apartment replied:

      i appreciate that, kate. it took a couple years, truth be told. i just realized that if i want change i have to do the changing. and damn it’s been fun!
