My Sunday

by Elsa Termenon on January 30, 2012

Someone told me the other day that I had to do more posts of everyday things… and not only do diary posts when traveling. I thought I’d give that idea a chance today so I brought the camera with me this entire day to capture my sunday in a few snapshots! My weekend has been [...]

The ottoman coffee table

by Elsa Termenon on September 4, 2011

When we moved in to our house and started decorating we told ourselves we didn’t want a coffee table. We just wanted the space to be open to be able to lounge directly on the rug before the fire place. But as the months past we realized that we needed something. So we have been [...]

Hurrication

by Elsa Termenon on August 28, 2011

Due to the hurricane Irene hitting the East Coast this weekend we had not much choice but to have a weekend indoors. We stocked up on all the essentials on Friday, made sure the flashlights had batteries and then decided to take the opportunity to do some cooking and just relax in front of a [...]

Our Dining Space

by Elsa Termenon on June 19, 2011

I’ve been meaning to show you our dining space for a while and here’re finally some proper photos! After looking for a farm table with black legs for several months, without finding anything in the right size, we decided to have a custom table built. We contacted David at The Lorimer Workshop and explained exactly [...]

Lazy Summer Nights

by Elsa Termenon on June 15, 2011

  Here are some random snapshots from lazy evenings at home the last week. Here’s for example how I spend so many evenings: in the sofa with my iPad reading, checking blogs and twittering. I love being at home now that we’re finally starting to settle in the new place. We’re both traveling quite a [...]

Friday!

by Elsa Termenon on June 11, 2011

Finally Friday is here and I couldn’t be happier! This week has been pretty intense and incredibly hot (around 35 C/ 95 F) and I’ve not slept well as you’re aware of :/ But I’ve spent this evening having dinner in my favorite greek restaurant (Kanella) and taking a vintage 60′s dress (from LA) out [...]

Dressing Room Make Over

by Elsa Termenon on June 8, 2011

Yesterday’s post about excessive shopping and our patterns of consumption made me continue to think about the subject. I though about how I could keep my habits under control and not feel like I want to run out and get things new new new, all the time. I easily get bored with what I’m wearing [...]

In my urban oasis

by Elsa Termenon on May 22, 2011

This weekend has been very relaxing and nice, the weather has been fairly good after a week of clouds and rains so I can’t complain. Since my husband is in L.A this week I have had a lot of time on my hands. Aside from brunching and catching up with a friend on Saturday I [...]

The Souvenirs

by Elsa Termenon on May 19, 2011

I’m not much of a shopper when I’m traveling. I much more prefer to relax with a cup of coffee on a terrace watching people and soaking up the new atmosphere wherever I go. (India is an exception though… there I go bananas!). Anyway, I took two souvenirs back with me home from this trip [...]

The Endless Process of Decorating

by Elsa Termenon on April 20, 2011

Since we moved into our townhouse in December we’ve been on a constant search for furniture and decoration. My husband and I have spent our weekends at flea markets and furniture stores, searched for inspiration in magazines and blogs – almost to the point that we need a decoration break! We have come quite far [...]
