Welcome fellow design junkies!

 

Helping design addicts become self-sufficient

We all love beautiful, well designed products that have a personality, or better yet: a story

But... independent designers are expensive and affordable brands all seem to come from the same cookie-cutter mold. How many times have I seen a colleague wearing that new top I just bought, or gone to a friend's house only to recognize half of the furniture. When I buy something like a gift for friends (or myself), I want people to see it and think of me, you know like when you get a whiff in the street of an old friend's perfume & it brings you back...

So where to get my fix?

Luckily, a decade spent as a fast fashion designer (hence the frustration) has taught me all the skills I need to DIY like a motherf*cker.

So weather you're in need of some inspiration, a bit of guidance or just a gal pal to share it all with:

Welcome to my pillow fort of a website! Pull up a cushion, pour yourself some tea (Read: wine) and let's get this sip'n'paint started!

ABOUT me

I'm one of those annoying people who when asked where they're from say "it's complicated..." then start to tell you their unsolicited life story...

Sooo to keep it short: I'm American... but also French, I worked in China for almost a decade but have now set up camp in Dubai.

Ever since I was little I've loved making things (preferably in the middle of the night with Cartoon Network on in the background) and nowadays I can usually be found chilling with my cat Chabi on the floor in a nest of scraps leftover from various projects.
