Matteo 4 months

Today is Matteo´s 4th month day.
He is getting wiser and brabbeling my head of, and he makes me smile every time he laughs with a wide open mouth, showing his two teeth...wasn´t able to catch that on a picture. When he sees a camera he stops smiling and looks curious to the black thing, same as with the iphone..such a shame.
It´s very nice weather outside and we are going to make a stroll.

Longing for a tropical destination

I can´t complain, living near the beach with Spanish temperatures, I can escape and enjoy some good free time. But still I am really longing for a nice, peaceful, sunny tropical retreat, and this house reminded me of that, just by looking at the pictures makes me wonder away in my thoughts. I think one of the most happy and memorable vacations I had was with my parents by the age of 10, we went to Barbados. The people, climate, music and food makes me want to go back and relive it again.

To which destination have you been that was so incredibly nice you want to go again?

Random Beau Lifestyle

Last weekend spend some time at the beach, really like neon nailpolish on my toenails.

Walking with Matteo, my stubborn baby, who likes to sit up and wants to be held in arms instead of lying in the stroller. But I do enjoy his cuddles and his curiosity of his surroundings.

Going to an auction today, excited. Have you attended one once in your life...I might be bidding on something...

For Rent - Amsterdam city center apartment

This white oasis in the city center of Amsterdam is for rent right now and it is owned by a good friend of mine. It´s a true pleasure to help her out, cause this apartment is a true gem and normally it´s hard to find a perfect place in Amsterdam.
It´s on at the Utrechtsedwarsstraat wich is a side street of a lovely shopping street and the Amstel canal.
This apartment is 100 square meters and is a masionette, groundfloor (kitchen, livingroom and garden) and 1st floor (2 Bedrooms and a bathroom) If you are interested please send an email to: 


Do you know this? I try to have to have the house tidy and organized, but it seems when you least expect unexpected visitors the house is always a mess. I need a doormat like this, at least you can joke about it! 
Instead I have this doormat, TRAMPA from Ikea.
Really like the print and it´s pricetag of $14,99

multi funcional kitchen

Hello, hello...yesterday I officially had the most busy day of the year and I felt like a multitasking pro! I couldn´t make it to sit down and write a relaxed post, so no you have my full attention again.
This dining area is very multifunctional, the tables has drawers for kitchen utensils and it makes the kitchen a whole lot bigger. Recognize the lamps frommoooi design? I have the same one above my dining table and i love it every day.

I love the marble top on the dining table, makes me want to own one.

I look forward to live in a house one day with doors that go to the garden from the kitchen, very handy when having dinner in the garden.

Childrens art - what to do with it?

I found this such a neat idea to hang up all the drawings and kids art that parents may have wandering in their houses.

This is a drawing that my best friends daughter made for Matteo, I framed in an Ikea shadow box.

graffiti walls and adore magazine

I absolutely love the graffiti walls Nicole from Sketch painted on a wall at a bachelor apartment in NYC, it´s features in Adore home magazine.
I would really want to try this at home, but instead of black paint I would choose a more soft color or gold. Oh my...I am getting myself excited for another DIY project.
Nicole at work

another wall made by nicole, with Keith Haring as inspiration

If a wall is too much for you, a painting is an other option.
All images with courtesy of Sketch

To get back to the Adore magazine:

Room by Ana Cordeiro

Room by Mariska Meijers

Both of these rooms are featured in Adore Magazine, and I have met these 2 lovely ladies in Person, Ana in Lisbon and Mariska in Amsterdam. Does it mean that this bloggers world is small or that I have been incredibly lucky to have met these talented ladies?
