I myself am a mixture of Modern romantic and Modern bohemian, ”I like to browse in vintage and second hand stores”and would you believe, I am also a bit of Daredevil in my choices of colour.

Shopify office in Montreal is my ideal office, I always wanted an office where you can lie around, dream and have a nap, and work of course. I find that an environment as such is really conductive to creativity.

The most expensive Easter Eggs in the world

HAPPY EASTER TO ALL OF YOU MY CHRISTIAN FELLOW BLOGGERS

Peter Carl Fabergé creator of these Easter eggs was one of the best jeweler and goldsmith in the world.

“Brahms: Violin Concerto In D, Op.77 – 2. Adagio” by Anne-Sophie Mutter (Google PlayiTunes)

Fabergé was born in Russia from French Hugenot (Protestant) paternal ancestors who fled France under Louis X1V, (if you want to know why look for the revocation of the Edict of  Nantes) he was the Tsars most famous jeweler.

Tsar Alexander lll of Russia was the first to have these indredibly beautiful and precious Easter eggs made by Fabergé for his Wife Maria Fedorovna, and the tradition went on with their son Nicholas ll until the revolution of 1917.

The Imperial third golden egg was lost for years, it was bought at an auction by a scrap dealer for the value of the gold (14,000.00) nobody knew it was an original Fabergé egg at the time until the dealer did a bit of research and discovered that this Fabergé egg was missing, it finally sold at Wartski’s auction to a private collector for 33 Million dollars in 2014.

Today’s idea, small changes big effect in your bedroom

The bed is the queen of the bedroom even though if it is a king size bed.

My bed before the small changes

023

This is what my bed looked like when I changed my bedding. I knew there was something missing, somehow I found it a bit blah and too linear.

IMG_1059

One day I was at Homesense and I discovered these two pillows, I knew right away this is what my bed needed. When I got home, I started playing with the bedding and realized the bed would look much better if I rolled the white duvet cover at the foot of the bed so that we could see the robin egg paisley sheets which also added shape and depth to my bed.

Voilà.

 My two white, robin egg with a splash of deep French blue pillows brought life to my bedroom.

The pillows were 29.95 each, not bad for a change.
