White paper Christmas Tree

Last sunday, I helped my mother to create an inexpensive good looking Christmas Tree and I thought you might enjoy it too. It is very inexpensive because it uses only PAPER !

I love celebrating Christmas and what I like even more is to get the house ready to welcome family and friends.

Despite a pretty good idea of I wanted to create, I had a look on internet to find complementary ideas and I’ll give you the links of the how-to-do explanation.

1. Rolling Flame

I got inspired by Ellinée Journal to create 3D rolling flames. It is easy to do, less than 5 minutes per flame.

You only need :

  • A square piece of paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
Image explaning the process (thanks to Ellinée Journal).
Here she is making a complete flower but I decided to create just a simple flame and here is the result :


2. Paper Star

 After that, in order to play with the magic side of Christmas, I created stars. For that I got inspired by White fish and things blog.
It’s a bit more complicated than the flame, but once you understand the move, it’s fast. It took me about 10minutes per stars after a bit of practise.
You only need :
  • 6 square pieces of paper (light is best)
  • Glue

You have to repeat 6 times the same fold of paper  explained in the PDF above : 

Once that’s done, stick them together. I used hot glue for that.

Here is the result, a very symmetrical star !


3. Little Christmas tree

As I love the shape of pine trees covered in snow, I really enjoyed this one.
I got inspired by the blog 86 lemons.

To me it is the easiest of all ! it takes 2 minutes to create one tree.

You only need :

  • Some paper, any size, any shape is good
  • blade-cutter
  • scissors
  1. Fold 2 pieces of paper together and draw half of the tree shape. Cut around it like that :
  2. Use a blade-cutter to cut on the red line.

  3. Assemble the two pieces together and hang it with a little thread. And here is the result !

4. Paper Rosette

Another easy one to create. I got inspired by Torie Jayne blog.
You only need :

  • rectangle of paper
  • glue

Fold the paper in accordeon and assemble them altogether. She uses thread but I used glue. The paper rosette has been added to teh top of the Christmas tree, with little lights behind, it is a great result!

I added as well a few feather and little silver garland and fairy lights.

If your Christmas tree isn’t down yet, I hope this article has been helpfull !

Don’t forget the Christmas Giveaway going on on Facebook at the moment. You can win one of my print and discount voucher for each participant.

Merry Christmas : )

Civico Quattro : italian natural design

Today I introduce you to an Italian designer “Civico Quattro” that creates natural style interior. Because I love this style, I contacted her (in a few words in Italian!) to be able to share this with you.

I love the raw material mixtures, wood, metal, fur and textiles such as linen. All this in a rustic industrial style: I could live in this home! and you?


I hope this interior design gave you lots of inspiration !

French colorful chalet

Today we visit a chalet located in France in the valley of Chamonix. This chalet isn’t like any others, the interior decoration is full of colors and unexpected elements. Have a look !

Dans ce chalet, la décoration atypique comporte des éléments neufs comme des éléments anciens, du cher et du pas cher, et le tout s’accorde à la perfection (selon les goûts de chacun biensûr).

In this chalet, the atypicaldecoration includes new and old elements such as expensive and cheap furnitures, and everything fits perfectly together (according to the tastes of each other of course).

Let’s start by the terrace, the place that I prefer in this house. The charming mix of authentic material creates a cosy ambiance.

Then we enter in the kitchen and living area.

I personally prefer neutral colors for the interior design but I find interesting to see this mix of colorful elements, which works !

I really like the chimney shape and style !

The kitchen where a pattern is created with mosaic.

A little space for reading and quiet time.

The bedroom

And the bathroom

Voilà ! Imagine all of that with a view on Mt-Blanc ! What else do you need ?

I hope you liked it, if so, please LIKE or share !

Thanks !

Wood white interior design

Hi, at the moment, I am very inspired by simple, clean designs with a feel of warmth and more specially by the combination of wood and white.

Here are a few pictures taken by photograph Sam McAdam for Home Delicious.

I personally like the use of raw materials as they look “true”, authentic. It is a good inspiration for the renovation I am undertaking at the moment.

White and Wooden Norwegian Interior

Here is a small thatched house in the heart of Norwegian nature. The interior design is uncluttered, white and wood.

Designed by Norwegian architect John Lassen, most of the furniture has been created by himself. The rest comes from the famous brand IKEA. The style is very pure, very clear, very white. Touches of wood warm the atmosphere and the materials works great together!

View from the outside:

A ladder has been placed instead of a staircase in order to optimize the space.

Crush for this modern white kitchen. A natural touch through wood worktop.

Wooden hallway towards 2 small bedrooms and a bathroom.

Another crush for this little sitting area with the sofa in the alcove. The coffee table was designed by John Lassen and sofa and armchair are from IKEA.

Hoping this article has been very inspirational! Thanks for your visit and I hope to see you again soon!

Modern Alpine Hut

Hi, today I found the original Leap Factory work of an italian company who recently built the new Gervasutti hut. Situated at 2865 meters high just under Grandes and Petites Jorasses, in the Mt Blanc Massif on the italian side, the new Gervasutti hut replace the old one which was more than 40 years old.

It has been created to resist to extreme high altitude weather and temperatures by using high technology material and insulation. The design is very different to original huts in the Alps and has been quite controversial for the mountaineers who used to live in basic huts.

Cost: 250.000,00 € (Total budget)
Design phase: sept. 2009 – dec 2010
Construction phase: may 2011 – oct 2010
2 day to install unit
 Poligamma, Biella (composite materials), GVM Arreda, Torino (interiors), Plat Andrea, Aosta (on site works)

Size: 30 square metres of usable space
Weight: 2500 kg total
12 bed spaces
2.5 Kwh of solar energy produced
