I often walk by this beautiful pink and blue garage door in my neighborhood (the mission district) and always tell myself I have to come with Lula to take some photos so here we are!
Lula is wearing an Old Navy shirt, a Jujubunny vest (this shop has the cutest clothes for kids), Freshly Picked neon green moccs and how cool are these harem pants offered by Watermelon moon?! We love the fun colorful print and the fabric is so soft, I wish it existed in my size!
While riding my bike this week to the studio I realized my Vans perfectly match the color of my bike!
Lula just started climbing out of her crib, so I guess it is time now to transition to a toddler bed.
There are a few different styles that I really like but it’s hard to make a decision as they can be really expensive.
Sometimes I wish we were in France, so things like a rotin bed would be much easier to find. I’ve always dreamed of one. My mum always tells me there’s a lot of rotin furnitures at the flea market in Lyon. I found a very cute one at La Redoute but they don’t ship to the US, so I would have to have it delivered at my parents and then they would have to ship it to us so I’m afraid it will cost a fortune. I’ve always loved rotin furniture and I think a rotin bed for a little girl is just too cute and it last in time. I’d love to add a little touch of vintage and french in Lula’s bedroom. I had no luck finding one at the Alameda flea market last weekend so I’ll keep looking… This one is super cute too.
I was already obsessed with the Caravan crib from Kalon studio but didn’t want to spend that much money in a crib. But now I really want their divan, the neon pink is just fantastic! I love the simple and modern lines and you know how much I love colors! I am in the process of rearranging Lula’s bedroom now she is older. Just bringing a little bit more colors in and other paper animals (it won’t be just a bunnyland anymore). So I think this divan would work just perfectly, neon pink or yellow!
Of course there’s always the Ikea solution, that is much much cheaper. They have some cute and simple options like this one.
Do you have any recommendations? Which one is your favorite?
Hello and Happy Monday!
Here are a few images of the cat (my new paper animal kit I released in the shop last week) shot by Maria Del Rio. I had so much fun styling this little playroom for the girls! They had fun drawing, dancing, jumping on the bed, reading stories…
As you can tell, I am a little obsessed by the light purple and apricot colors lately with a little touch of neon! Check my Instagram for more photo inspiration.
I had fun making this bed from a palette I found and spray painted light purple. I think the result looks pretty cool and Lula was so happy when she saw it.
A big thanks to my little models, how cute is little Vivian?! She was so perfect for this shoot because she looooves cats! Every time I see her she wears cat ears!
Hey! I recently move into a new studio! It’s located in the sunny Mission District. It feels so good to have my own space and get ready everyday (I used to work in my pj’s and shower at 2pm). Before we had Lula, her nursery was my studio, then it became half nursery half studio but very soon I had to move all my stuff out of her room and put my desk in our bedroom. It worked for a few months but then I needed a real space dedicated to my work. I thought it would be hard at first because I loved working from home but I am really glad I made this decision. I ride my bike there everyday and the best thing is that it’s half way from our home and Lula’s nanny. So I can pick her up after my work day is done, she’s only 5 minutes away.
More photos to come soon! This one is from Maria Del Rio.
There’s a new pet in the shop for you to adopt: the cat! It is wheat and white with a copper nose and it is available with 3 different backdrop color options: light purple, peach or neon pink. I’ll post more photos soon!
I was looking through my photos, organizing files and found these photos my sister took of me and Lula last september when we were in France, in my hometown Lyon. She was 13 months old. One of the things I missed the most from living in France is le marché (farmer’s market)! These photos were taken on a sunny sunday morning at the Marché du quai Saint-Antoine.
I studied 4 years in Aix-en-Provence, in south of France where farmer’s market are the best! There was one at the little place down my building, I used to pass by every morning on my way to school. The smells, the colors…made me so happy! I would go almost every weekend.
Oh and also the pink praline brioche! Which is a speciality from Lyon.
I am excited to share a little paper portrait/mascot I made for my good friend Sarah Wert who is a new mum of an adorable baby girl named Willa. Sarah is also a fantastic kids photographer based in San Francisco. She took the photos of Lula’s nursery when I was still pregnant and captured my maternity style (also took my engagement photos and my products lookbook). Sarah created Hello, Margot as a blog where she features some of the best in kids products, fashion, and design and also shares her experience as a new mom.
The logo was created by Christine Castro Hughes.
Last weekend we took the train for a long ride (but worth it at the end, watching the sunset from San Luis Obispo to SB was so magical) to Santa Barbara early on Saturday morning. We spent the night there and drove to LA on Sunday, had lunch and did a little bit of shopping (Pebble and Heyoka Hideout) in the dreamy Topanga Canyon on the way. In LA we spent a couple night in this super fun Airstream in Venice, just a few blocks from Abbot Kinney street and the beach. It was a really fun and unique experience! The property has a lot of character and the garden is beautiful. Lula made friend with Felix the bunny and the flamingos. I loved the outdoor shower! Would love to stay there again but maybe during summer, when the nights are warmer.
We went to LACMA for the first time, Lula had so much fun in the noodles and the urban lights! We spent some time at the beach, she loves the sand so much I’ve never seen her that happy. She would just let herself fell on the sand, roll and do some fun figures.
Here are a few pics from our trip! Have a great weekend!
She gave a little kiss goodbye to the flamingo!
Have a beautiful Valentine’s day and President’s day weekend! The weather is gorgeous here, we are taking the train tomorrow morning to Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. I am so excited for this little adventure! Packing shorts and sandals… yay!
PS: This photo was taken a couple weekends ago in half moon day. Lula is a beach girl, she loves it so much it became our little family tradition to go on beach walks during the weekend. It feels so good!
Here is a new paper portrait I just finished for a San Francisco family! Another fun project to work on!
