THE GREEN WALL



LE MUR VEGETAL 
DE LA RUE DES PETITS CARREAUX
How would you like to live in that building? so lush and generous seen from outside, no doubt;
but any creepy-crawlies ready to sneak in through the kitchen window?


au revoir.

WHAT I FOUND ON THE STREETS...








CE QUE J'AI TROUVÉ SUR MON CHEMIN

Paris
They do say it is the city of love...

 Naples, Italy
Loosely translated:
To the owner of the dog who, daily, does his business in front of # 21: your uncivil conduct cannot be tolerated most of all because the afore mentioned address is that of a handicapped person. So should this unpleasant episode continue it will be reported to the competent authorities.

Tangier, Morocco
BOO!

Paris
Translation:
I don't want to be your friend on Facebook.
OK...




au revoir.

HARLEQUIN





 MON AMI ARLEQUIN 

If you have been reading my posts you may have noticed that I love the Harlequin pattern. This one is particularly appealing in its extreme subtlety.

 In fact I am drawn to very minimalist harlequin patterns. 
Especially on 
 a lot of white.


Au revoir.

THE RED ARTICHOKES






LES ARTICHAUTS ROUGES
Found at the market in Paris today, these pretty artichoke with deep red hearts. 

Served slightly opened, with just a lime and olive oil vinaigrette and finely sliced home-made gravlax.





au revoir.

THE VERY BLUE POST-WINTER SKIES OF TANGIER




LES CIELS TRÈS BLEUS DE TANGER APRÈS L'HIVER
 After the cold and the humidity of winters in Tangier Morocco, the skies clear up once in a while and display their bright blue splendor for a few days. This was the case on our last trip there 2 weeks ago. A very welcomed respite from the endless rain, the "locals" told us!
Chez Abdou, the funky fish restaurant on the beach, the weather was deceptively bright and though the entrance to the beach has been readied in Abdou's flamboyant style, there is no swimming quite yet.
 In the Kasba, the usually white walls, their grayish stains the effect of the wet winter season, await the next coat of paint

The Strait as seen from the terrace of the fabulous Tangerina. 
Bright blue skies chasing the winter blues.



au revoir.

HARLEQUIN







 As I have already mentioned in my blog, I really love this pattern! It's beautiful in a Moroccan Boucherouite rug, as an accent wall, on Moroccan side tables and even on a wall in Taroudant, Morocco.
Morocco/harlequin…do I see a pattern here? 
Yes (pun intended…)


images via etsy, pinterest, elle décor and my own.





au revoir.
