Bicycle chic...


I will always love Audrey Hepburn's style, even when she rides!
Her dog in the basket is sooo cute!


Vintage pictures... Rita Hayworth on a bicycle in her swimsuit.



Catherine Baba, stylist, rides her bicycle to all of the shows during Paris Fashion week.

Riding on heels...


How much I love the colours of her dress and her bicycle.

 

These two girls are so cool...



Olivia Palermo is always so stylish! It's unbelievable how she rides a bike with such high heels!

I find it very stylish for men to ride a bike in a suit!





Bicycles are popular in fashion shoots as well... These two pictures are from Harper's Bazaar.


 This shoot was in Miami for Red Magazine! Really beautiful!

Get away in style: Trancoso, Brazil


I found this marvelous eco-conscious summer getaway in Trancoso, Brazil and started dreaming of a week in the sun during the cold winter days...

Lured by its idyllic seclusion and natural beauty, travelers for centuries have called the small Bahian fishing village of Trancoso “paradise on earth”. The historic town green overlooking the sea, known as the Quadrado, is the tranquil center of town life where natives gather and horses graze during the day, while during the evening candles alight and the atmosphere turns festive and romantic. 

In this magical scenery, UXUA appears as a fine hospitality house. This place designed by Wilbert Das, who has served as creative director of the Italian fashion label Diesel since 1993. Portuguese adventurers, Indian settlers, and even Brazilian hippies have influenced in some way the architecture, art and antiques giving a unique expression to each casa.

Living in Style : Vintage touch

Today I'm inspired by this vintage styled home. I love the combination of bright colours, textures and pattern on the white background. This house has a strong character and all the personal touches make it really unique!

The entry of the house is characterised by the vintage tile floor.


The living area is a mix and match of an asian influenced collection with modern pieces.

 This is my favourite part of the house! The office! Wooden workbench mixed with the simplicity of the transparent chairs and vintage pieces such as the amazing ceiling lamps. The white walls are warmed up by the collection of the art posters.


What a great idea to paint a furniture of your house at this bright turquoise blue! I wish I had this cabinet at my house!


 

This house makes me think: Never throw away old things... it's always worth trying to transform them and turn them into something new!
