Trend: Art Deco Patterned Wallpaper

If I were to name my most loved interior design styles I would say Art Deco, Hollywood Regency style, and Coastal. To my loyal readers this should come as no big surprise because I have written about Art Deco before e.g. about the Art Deco exhibition I visited two months ago, or Miami's Art Deco tour on South Beach. So to find out that Art Deco is 2018's interior trend is such a delight to me. Although it's a contemporary interpretation of the original early 1900s style, it still adapts the … [Read more...]

Winter Fashion Favourites from Barts

Winter is here so it's time to dress extra warm. A stylish winter fashion brand that caught my eye this year is the Dutch brand Barts. Their accessories designs are characterized by faux fur, cashmere, thick cable knits and soft woolen accessories for outside. The must-have for 2018 is a 'Beanie' hat with a pompom on top. But also the faux fur trend is making a come back. Were it only children who wore mittens and ear muffs, in 2018 it's also hip for adults. You would almost wish for snow when … [Read more...]

3 Reasons to visit the Museum of Modern Art (MUDAM) in Luxembourg

MUDAM Luxembourg

Visiting Luxembourg? Then a visit to the Museum of Modern Art (MUDAM) has to be on your 'to see list'. In the beginning I was a little reluctant because I'm not particular a fan of Modern Art.

The building The MUDAM (Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean) is designed by  Chinese-American architect Ieoh Ming Pei who also designed the Louvre in Paris. The high glass ceilings … [Read more...]

Hotspot Luxembourg: Restaurant Mu

Late November I was invited to a weekend escape to the beautiful city Luxembourg.

Today I'd like to focus on the lovely dinner we had at the most talked about hotspot: Restaurant Mu Luxembourg. Restaurant Mu Luxembourg is located at 40 Boulevard d'Avranches on the 8th and upper floor of the Sofitel Le Grand Ducal … [Read more...]

Weekend tip: Amsterdam Light Festival Canal Cruise

Watercolors Canal cruise

Hello everyone, I'm back from my Christmas break and first of all would like to wish you a Happy New Year! I had a very peaceful and quiet break filled with netflix, hibernating, stuffing my face with cookies, chocolate and food, and more netflix. Basically, I didn't do anything and it felt great. I'd like to kick off the new year with the one leisurely thing I did do during my break: an Amsterdam Light Festival Boat Tour.  Unfortunately it was raining cats and dogs that day so I was unable … [Read more...]

As the year draws to a close…

As the year draws to a close, it's time for me to take a short break from blogging. The year 2017 was mainly focused on traveling and has brought me a lot of new adventures. At the start of the year I set the personal goal to make one trip every month. It didn't have to be far, as long as it fueled me with new experiences and gave me new sights. I didn't quite reach that goal, but I came pretty close with 9 months of travelling. I even got to check off 2 destinations from my bucket list; Rome … [Read more...]

My favourite luxury Scented candles for Christmas

One of my personal little luxuries in daily life is lighting luxury scented candles in my home. While some may think they are overpriced, I gladly spend the money on something that makes me feel better and relaxed. A fragrance illicit memories and is therefore a powerful tool to create a mood. Scented candles also elevate and enhance my home decor and ambiance. We can all agree that there's nothing as pleasant as walking into a home that smells nicely. Especially during Christmas time I like to … [Read more...]
