This week at home

As mentioned in the last post, I attended Les Jours Vintage at Palexpo. One of the stands was  sérendipité.ch, a website that brings to you publications that cannot be found on normal newsstands in Switzerland. But not just any publications, beautifully illustrated lifestyle magazines that celebrate the non-conventional way people live. I picked up the latest issue of Anthology and have been making my way through it all week.

In celebration of Les Jours Vintage, here are some glimpses of some vintage pieces (or vintage inspired) in my kids’ rooms. One of my last finds has been the New York in a bag (iconic NYC figures in wood), picked up at the MOMA store on a recent trip to New York. Too cute to resist.

Have a great weekend!
