Food for Thought or Love

"I THOUGHT THAT MANY THINGS WERE PERMITTED TO YOU...BECAUSE YOU WERE NOWHERE A STRANGER, NOWHERE COULD YOU BE ONE, BEING NOWHERE DEPRIVED OF A CONNECTION WITH THINGS, WITH LIFE, NOWHERE SEPARATED FROM BEING, WHICH IS THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL." Ramuz   
 Have a romantic weekend!

Take it outside

Because we live in a condo I really miss having a spacious outdoor space and make it as habitable and comfortable as possible.  But when we do, way down the road, our outdoor patio will have to have a place to eat Al Fresco, cushions, there must be a bunch for comfort, evergreen and of course flowers among which there will be wisteria, lavender and roses. ummm...that sounds like a lot of purple.

Well Wheeled


De Gournay covered bike 

I am still mourning the theft of my bike, that was locked to a railing on the boardwalk at the New Jersey Shore, 4th of July weekend.  I miss riding along the coast, the wind in my frizzy hair.  So, I am biting the bullet and buying another.  I did not realize how fashionable the bicycle has become.  Designers are really jumping on the growing biking craze, and I'm never one to miss out on a good craze.


This $3,500.00 Gucci number was red hot and sold out overseas.  Specially designed for the Beijing Olympics, the Dutch styled bike was only available in China and Hong Kong, so let's keep looking.





This image doesn't even require words.  Only 50 "bicylettes" were created.  The detachable classic Chanel make up case and bag, included in the $17,000.00 price tag created a frenzy and I 'm sure they were sold out en quelques minutes.





Ahh, Hermes ~ their lacquered signature orange cruiser is less than a Birkin bag.  It seems like a bargain when you look at it like that.  For $4,000.00 you can have a little piece of The House of Hermes.






The Abici Amante Donna Bike from Fendi gives you 2 options.  For those who don't want to spend $9,000.00 for the tricked out version with the fur saddlebags and make up case, for touch ups on the go - you can settle for the $5,000.00 stripped down bike; still a beauty!




If we must get our head out of the clouds and our feet back on the ground, other good options abound.
Count on Cynthia Rowley to design a fashion forward, functional bike (she does everything else!).  The subtle floral pattern and $500.00 price tag would attract any fashionista.





Elie Tahari threw his hat into the ring and designed a bicyle also.  Named after the street his store is on in the Hampton's, the $900.00 Main St. Elite also comes in leopard.  Hmm, I do have a leopard golf bag.








I love the look of this sweet ride by Urban Outfitters.  Totally customizable and a bargain at $399.99,  this could be the one.  Now, I just need a cute basket, a bell, a new lock and a pouch.  It's all in the details!






Oh, and I can't forget the helmet.  Seriously ~ these are helmets, but the fabric is a little weighty for the summer.  I need more of a straw fedora helmet.

Does this airbag helmet make me look fat?

Speaking of Bikes ~ Check out more fabulous designers jumping on the bike wagon during New York Fashion Week.  In what is being called Tour de Fashion, designers will trick out bikes, and they will be available for use during Fashion Week.

French Bathrooms

We're starting to renovate Lucas' bathroom and this time I'm going for a more eclectic French approach.  It's for a toddler this bathroom, but it'll also be shared with guests so it'll be eclectic and rooted on tradition.  I love how French have proven their immortal style so much so that sometimes they throw this here and that there and they know that the result will be as close to perfect as if they had planned it more carefully.  I'll just try and see what comes out.  After all Belle stands for my love of everything French and Vivir for my living, feeling and experience through design since I ever remember.  Enjoy the eye candy!

Wednesday Classics, FLAMESTITCH

 Chastleton House, Oxfordshire
Flamestitch or Florentine stitch, not to be confused with zig zag,  is believed to be originated in Hungary as Hungarian stitch or embroidery.   The design that is as old as you can imagine was first found and created as embroidery, which was called in Italy Bargello Arts Stiching, hence the Bargello chairs.  It consists in straight up and down uneven zigzag resembling flames.  Back in the 1600's Anne Fettiplace, wife of Walter Jones, had a bedroom and closet " The Fettiplace Closset" in the Chastleton House, Oxfordshire covered completely in Flamestitch.  Mary Mcdonald anyone?  You see how nothing is really new? 
 Mary Mcdonald's closset
David Hicks
Flamestich pattern became huge in the 70's and it's the type of pattern that can either be hated or loved, no middle ground here.  David Hicks was a fan, as is Mary Mcdonald today.
