+ DECO : A light-filled home in Sydney
I’m loving this beautiful house in Sydney built and designed for a couple who has very different taste in design. I’m really found of the banana leaves on the table. It is a great idea for a large & minimalist space.

+ FOOD : A “raw” cheesecake with kiwifruit by My Darling Lemon Thyme
I have been wanting to give those raw cheesecake a try for a long time : the base is made with dates & almonds, the cream is soaked cashews with coconut oil finely mixed so it becomes smooth. This one with kiwifruit made by My Darling Lemon Thyme is particularly tempting ! If I get good results, I will share a recipe here !

+ DECO : Rattan peacock bedhead
Those vintage headboards give a nice bohemian touch and add character to a bedroom. I love the contrast between the two series of pictures. The first two are very neutral and soft but the two others are more flamboyant, and show a clever use of color. I love the two styles but I think I will choose the first one for my own bedroom. What about you ?

+MANGER : Eggs poached in Tomato Sauce
I often make a variation of this recipe for dinner, a tomato-based sauce with eggs slowly cooked in it. I made it in plenty of different ways : basquaise style for example with ham and peppers or a shakshuka with middle-eastern spices. When I spotted this recipe on Emiko Davies’ blog , a blog that I only recently discovered and absolutely love, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to share it with you.
Find the recipe here and take a look at her lovely blog.

Interior design shops in Marseille

DecoMarseille-01

During our trip to Marseille, I planned for a little visit of home decor shops that I had spotted in magazines or other blogs while preparing for this weekend. The city is full of good spots, I could easily have visited twice the number of shops but time was lacking and the crushing heat was not our best friend for a shopping session.
Without further ado, my favorite spots, all within walking distance :

+ Good Design Store
DecoMarseille-02

Opened by Katja, whos is in charge of representing scandinavian brands for the French market, and her husband, I was pleased to visit this lovely place. This design store, is in the heart of the commercial and pedestrian district of marseille, few steps away from rue St Férreol. You will find scandinavian brands like Ferm Livng, Muuto, Northern Lighting but also some trendy names like Tom Dixon, Gervasoni, or Serax. The shop is gorgeous, a former jazz club transformed into a spacious and light-filled showroom.

+ Labo Life Store
DecoMarseille-03

Concept store mixing home design, men & women’s clothes, jewelry, I liked their choice of furnitures and textiles. They have a great selection of up and coming brands like the design objects by Incipit (they also distribute the work of Illaria I I shared in my M&O selection), bed linens by Mille et Clair, or Mifuko‘s baskets.

+ Honoré
DecoMarseille-05
I was particularly curious to visit Honoré’s shop, after spotting the brand in M&O. The shop has the same feel as their stand in the fair, I found the same objects that made my heart sing : Croisette armchairs, natural pendant lights, boho plaids and pillow but the shop carries also some beautiful objects and rustic tableware. And an inspiring storefront !

+ Maison Empereur
DecoMarseille-04

Cult shop in Marseille, the mecca of hardware store, I couldn’t say no to such tempting proposal. I found the place marvelous, everything you need for your house : handiwork, cooking, gardening, bath, toys …. An old-fashioned store where you see that each object has been carefully selected and only top quality brands have been chosen. French makers, experts in their fields, are well represented.
They also have a second shop, right next to the main one (pictured), dedicated to workware : breton shirts, pea jackets, sailor coats, hats, overalls, only quality fabrics, timeless cuts, made by demanding and traditional makers.
