Blanc & Caramel au bord de la mer...

Isn't it great that summer is finally here? In the last few days the weather here was simply perfect. Fortunaltely the cold May days (mayday? :) are over, when we had to cancel our trip to the sea because it was raining. I look forward to a summery seaside weekend in two weeks. Deauville is only two hours away from Paris. It's the perfect place for long beach walks when the sea is not yet warm enough to swim in. And the perfect place for little girls like me to collect seashells...

I'm so excited to announce my brand new nautical summer collection Au Bord de la Mer! It was such a pleasure to create seaside inspired items. I love this style, a perfect mixture of fresh white shabby chic and vintage with a story. Everything has of course a little French touch to it ;)

I wish I had beach house, a sailing boat and even a lighthouse, and you?



Our last trip to Deauville...


  1. Mon Chani!
    Hi, ja ich kann noch etwas francais... oui...
    Deine maritime Kollektion ist sooo schön, Du weißt ja, ich liebe dieses Maritime auch und wie Du sagst, ein Strandhaus, Segelschiff und dazu ein Leuchtturm zu haben, wäre PERFEKT!!! Von mir gibt es heute auch noch ein paar Ostseeimpressionen... erstmal schaue ich mich so durch die Blogs.
    In die Normandie würde ich auch so gerne mal!! Genauso gern wie in die Bretagne... mal abgesehen von der Provence...
    Viele liebe Grüße aus dem (heute) sonnigen Norden von Ann

  2. I fancy nautical inspired things as well :) Your new goodies look lovely!
    I'd like a beach house but where I live I'm only minutes from the sea anyway :)
    Have a lovely week.

  3. The weather here is perfect to.. I went to my little boat yesterday and I got a nice tan.
    I wish I had a little cottage and lots of animals, high grass and bare feet.
    Enjoy your week,

  4. What a lovely collection. I am just acroos the English Channel And the sea is still very cold here too but the sunshine is sublime!
    Enjoy the beach,

  5. Your new designs are wonderful! I love anything with a nautical look. I'm sure you will do very well with them. Have a wonderful time visiting the beach.
