black and white babyshower

How chic is this black and white baby shower? Never thought you could make a babyshower look like an adult party.

Looks so inviting and candy for the eye

images on to baby
 Love the detail of the invited friends being able to make their own scent of aromatherapy and bring it home.

La Fiorentina by David Hicks

Absolutely my favorite fabric: bold & geometric patterned. It turns any room into a chic and sophisticated room. The black and withe pattern is my favorite, but it comes in a sever color options.

Above two pictures are of Erica Bretchel´s home, the talented mom, blogger,designer...this girl can do it all and so well. Please visit her blog Small shop studio. I think that when I saw her home for the first time I had to have those pillows.

I keep seeing the Smeg refrigerators everywhere, and I can´t blame them, they are pretty! Their design fits every decor and the come in nice colors. The above one is my favorite. I can imagine it in my future beach house ( yeah I am an optimistic dreamer).

Our weekend

Our weekend flew by as we went to Amsterdam as we were invited by dear friends to join their wedding. The lovely couple stand on the steps of the entrance of West Indisch huis historic building as where the mother and father of the bride were standing many years ago when they got married.

The beautiful and romantic table, I loved the fact it was one big table to sit and be able to look at all faces. It was great to have had a reunion with our dear friends.

The wedding was beautiful and intimate, just the way I like it.

I had some time left to do furniture shopping with my mum. There are always great flower shops in and near Amsterdam.

Mr Beau had time to tour with my father on the motorbikes, having lunch on route and enjoy the day doing guy stuff.

Our baby Matt, was at his other grandma´s house, letting us have couple time. He learned how to brush his teeth, as most of the times he also enjoys biting the brushy side of it.
My weekend was amazing!

bead organization

This is one of my pride and joy pieces at our home. I have been blessed with such sweet parents giving me this vintage letter closet ( no idea what you call it in english) to store beads and material for my other business. It´s a closet with many flat drawers for lead letters that they used for making newspapers. U probably have seen a drawer mounted on a wall with little figurines in it. Well this is the complete thing. We painted it white so it would look better in our decor.

So happy to have everything organized!

Vintage trunk and suitcases painted white

These trunk and suitcases are the vintage ones my mum and me we bought on flea markets. They are already lovely in their brown colors, but I wanted to have them clean and painted in white so they would match the idea I had for Matteo´s Nursery. I posted about Matteo´s nursery before here.
I changed a bench for the vintage trunk and suitcases so toys, small clothes and other things can be saved in there. I changed the rug for a bargellow white and navy one bought at Zara home.

update Beau Lifestyle

Thank you all for commenting on the blog exchange I have enjoyed reading the blogs of Home change home, the shingled house, Baum squad and House@heart. Please visit and read these blogs on lifestyle, decoration, DIY and family life.
I am back after being away for a few days, it was easter holidays and had my parents over for a few days to spend some quality time with our little Matt, how lovely was that, I already miss them.
They brought over many many goodies for our home...geee, where to start, it involves vintage trunks, vintage suitcases and a special closet. I will promise to take pictures and post them on this blog soon. I am also back to work, as my daily work pays the bills, it has to come before blogging, even though I notice my mind drifting away from my work sometimes thinking of tiles, fabrics and what to change next in my home. Matt is been sweet but oh so naughty, he also suffers that most of his teeth are coming through. He looks like a big boy now.
