Beau lifestyle apartment

This is it, the painting is finally dry, and mounted on the wall.These are the images of our little apartment that I wanted to share with you. If you read my blog you might recognize the things in the apartment that I posted about. There are still things I want to undertake in our apartment, but for the moment it's done.
Please let me know what you think and I am happy to tell you where I found/ bought the things in our apartment. I would like to thank you, for being part of this wonderfull world called blogging. It has been a huge inspiration for me.

Your apartment and the work you did to it is gorgeous! If you don't mind me asking, how big is your place (sq ft wise?) I love the chandelier in the dining room, and i love how you display your jewelry in the glass dishes... what great inspirations!

So glad to have landed on your blog!

Your home is so beautiful! I also found you via Made by Girl. Love the painting! Great job.

Beau lifestyle said...

Thank you for all the sweet comments.

Kelly: The painting was made with 3 different wide brushed and oilpaint. I made upwards and downwards strokes with many differnt colours and layers, no water was used but terpentine. the dots I have made at the end with bubble plastic.

Tiffany: thank you for your compliment, I wish I had Jen´s style she gave a lot of inspiration.

Sherri: the towel is from Zarahome, love that store, probably they sell it online too.

Jeanne: Our apartment is 927 sq ft (88 sq meters) 3 bedroom and 2 bathrooms.
The chandelier is made by Jurgen bey for Moooi design and is called Lamp Shade Shade from droog design.
The glass dished were thrifted and were 50 cents each.

ps said...

hi there! your home is absolutely fabulous. nice work! where did you get the zebra rug? xoxo! sophie

Beau lifestyle said...

ps: got the zebra rug from a clearance sale at a great decoration store in Holland:http://www.loods5.nl

Horchow is selling the exact same one:http://www.horchow.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=cprod25780132&cmCat=search&searchType=MAIN&parentId=&rte=%252Fsearch.jhtml%253FN%253D0%2526Ntt%253Dzebra%252Brug%2526_requestid%253D8638

I do find ebay to be a good source for zebra rugs as well, good quality and better priced:

Hope this was any help ;)

emily said...

Your home is absolutely gorgeous. So many wonderful details -- I found myself spending so much time admiring each picture! Great job!

Also, where did you find the fabric on your couch (the gray and white ikat)? I have been on the hunt for that fabric for a while now. Seeing it in your space makes me love it even more.

Beau lifestyle said...

Vanessa, your blog is very inspiring, good taste and the music is divine! Loved it ;)

Emily the ikat covers were purchased at fabricadabra.com, but i saw nice ikat fabric over at ebay as well.
Good luck!

pintsizedinFluence said...

Saw your pics on Made By Girl and had to visit your blog. Love the choices you have made in your apartment. Can you tell me where you purchased the magazine rack next to your lucite chair. I need it immediately. *Subscribing*

Beau lifestyle said...

pintsizedinFluence the magazine rack was a gift year ago that I can not track down from where it was bought. I did find you a similar one at:http://www.chiasso.com/store/item.aspx?ItemId=46179
Hope this helps ;)

Your home is simply incredible and inspiring.

I must have a coffee table like yours! Where did you purchase it??

Your #1 fan

JD: thank you for such compliments, I did find that coffeetable at my local Goodwill store, go and visit these shops near you and discover some hidden treasures.

raddesigning said...

oh i LOVE your dining table chairs... im crazy about that style and have looked everyone for some similar! Where did you manage to snag them?!

BTW, the word verification below is "buttfare". Yea i know, i thought it was funny too!

annie said...

Your home is absolutely gorgeous! i don't know where to start with the compliments! i love the open shelving in the dining room and love the items on the shelves. What a great idea to have your jewelry in shallow crystal bowls. And that white bowl on top of the pink and blue books for your keys and sunglasses, etc. What a great idea!

Okay, one more...I love the photo with the red/orange bowl of lemons. I'm bookmarking this page!

Beau lifestyle said...
Raddesigning: They are vintage (holly wood regency) faux bamboo chairs, actually I got them from my moms friend who has a antique store. The chairs were hers for years and she didn't liked them, they were an ugly kind of green with torn seatings. My mother bought them for me (read $15 each!)and had them painted and reupholstered. ( i am missing 2 seats as you can see in the picture, I am getting them done right now) But I have seen them on craigslist, thriftstores and on ebay. Search and search and you will find yours for a steal too.
haha you had a funny verification word, how do they com up with those silly words :)))

Noticed your love of acrylic here. You might want to check out www.plexi-craft.com. Gorgeous mostly custom furniture & accessories, but they do sell some stuff direct to customers online.

Krystal {Blue Ribbon} said...

Your home is GORGEOUS!! (just found it through Rambling Renovators!!). Just wondering if you have a post on how you went about that DIY canvas you painted? It's gorgeous, and I've wanted to try my hand at abstract, but have no clue where to start!

Inez of Style Chic 360 said...
