INTERIORS // BOHEMIAN STYLE KIDS ROOM

the lovely SWEET HOME BLOG has a new post on bohemian style kids rooms. i love this style: unconventional, everything is right and possible, mix and match, bringing a playful element into your home. and it's so perfect for kids rooms, as the blog post says. it simply grows with the kids, and can be adapted to their special needs. and it perfectly fits with our new motto here, as you don't need a lot of new stuff to make it happen. simply combine old and new, things you have in your house anyway, a little paint maybe, some cheerful pillows and rugs, a little handicraft work - done.

go and get yourself inspired!

i'm so happy to announce that this blog is going green! after two years of blogging about interiors, decoration, food & travel i'm excited to take VIOLETS&APPLEPIE style a step further and give it a new dimension. i will still be blogging about interiors, decoration, food & travel, but combining style with a little more green and sustainable. i really believe that living a caring life makes us happier - us, the people around us, and the world (we need visions, right?!)! read more about VIOLETS&APPLEPIE's journey so far and my ideas for it's future in the ABOUT... section.

in this spirit, i have also updated the page about my INSPIRATION sources and am working on a BUTIK page with tips for products that have style AND are green and fair. so stay tuned!

i love a good, hearty soup, especially in wintertime. SOUPE DE CHALET is a specialty from the Fribourg region of Switzerland, where my husband comes from. he made his version of it for our tête-à-tête last thursday evening, and it was more than perfect. such good flavors, so heartwarming, so good! as always, try to get hold of the best of ingredients possible - organic vegetables (from the farmer's market, if possible), Gruyère AOP bio and crème double de la Gruyère. you won't be disappointed!

usually i'm not in the mood for sweet drinks - but sometimes in the evening, or after being outside in the cold, i crave for something heartwarming. this recipe for hot chocolate has just the right balance between sweet and spicy, and the hint of orange liqueur makes it very special.
