Our beautiful kitchen ^^
This year has been a very big year for my small business Since it was finally decided to trust and go to see things a little bigger. It was not easy and before pressing the button I quite tight buttocks :D
It has no great thing from the outside air I guess, but we take our offices in us, sign a lease 3-6-9 and say that everything will be okay is a little like when we take his first apartment we pay alone as a major when you have 20 years old.
They sublet a small corner of offices chez Colorz depuis toujours, then when they left we said “would like if it regained the entire floor for us all alone ?”. I have prepared a file for the owner of the premises without too believing and I found myself in panic when she told us that it pleased him well and that she accepted we rent all the space. Kind I found myself shaking the phone while confirming that everything was nickel trying to have full assurance in the voice. And it's the day after it is decided to darken, hop hop chick who finally leaves the nest.
I remember the long winter evenings where I contemplated our space full of cardboard and dust from ceiling asking me if I had not made a big mistake (It's stupid huh ?). And here we are 9 mois plus tard, as after giving birth to a large baby, months of plans, business plan, of work, Deco. And all is well. It was really worth not sleeping during all these months, wake me up at night to record ideas or review the plan, missions to the Leroy Merlin of St Denis to buy a door workshop, the 90 boxes placed on a pallet at ikea a Sunday and the 5 other missions that followed…
It is brand new with our new site and our offices pretty alone to us. And I am really proud that it did everything to finally provide the means, me who always doubt and who am much too conservative. So here's our beautiful offices and all our deco ideas !
The working corner
CA this is the corner where we work, It has a large canopy to the ceiling which gives us incredible light, and a super nice tropical wallpaper PS International *. What is j'adooooore, as well as a deco balloons with helium-based from home My Little Day *.. On a 4 small offices and a large table.
Our lovely offices inside redoubt (I come back after, It has customized the passage of the ugly cables) + Chair Ikea and our trash was assumed in the RADIUS cache pots at Ikea
With drawers handy for storing each his small brothel (because everyone has always the brothel and need to deal with).
Like that is always neatly offices
There are each a small trolley Ikea to put our small business
Ikea lamp, fan Muji
On every desktop there is a lamp, a small fan and a power cable and RJ45 cable. It has made holes in offices in the Bell saw and bought caches on amazon. Then on a power strip belong to the small shelf of the office (It was chosen for this, c’est parfait)
Was also made a hole in the saw under the desk and then it made the cables under the desk and run along the foot like this :
Like this when you want to move the offices is disconnected as these two outlets there and zou.
Large table Ikea, folding benches Amazon
Otherwise in addition to our offices on a large table for when should be photos of DIY or when you have friends who want to come work with us at the office.
And all our pretty paper colors arranged in Rainbow and a shelf for storing the ugly stuff :
Shelf redoubt interiors *., Star DIY, slot machine, world map Un Beau Jour
The relaxation and home corner
Offices a bit was meant as a big studio, with the entrance into the kitchen where we had lunch also.
The entry with our love smeg fridge <3 and everything else is IKEA. Has been of Papel Picado ceiling because the exhibit was a little bland and it changes everything (It is not expensive and you can write what you want).
And then there is a seating area where one can ask to work or chatting with those who come to the office (customers, friends). At the bottom was a great wall of ikea cabinets with wallpaper top (I stole this idea to The room). We think not enough but pax 35cm deep ikea cabinets are super storage that take little room, on a section of wall around it makes lots of storage.
Yellow Chair *., Sofa gray *., Blue Pouffe *., wool carpet, Redoubt interiors and AMPM coffee table *., wallpaper 4murs *.
The lamp “bouboude” (I call it) ^^ at lightonline.fr*, Yellow armchair inner Redoubt *., wallpaper 4murs *.
There are also full of chairs, I love it when the chairs are mismatched, There are even a rocking chair ^^
Chair Ikea, lamp at LightOnline.fr*
The idea of all that space is of course to do a bit more than offices : It has a photo studio where work is if one moves the large table and that is pushed into the offices against the walls (has been This shooting par exemple), You can also host workshops DIY or receiving a little more world a drink. It was really thought these offices to be modular, the foot of the table was cut to put casters and is reflected on all.
CA it is when we organize a workshop, We put two large end-to-end tables (easy to move have been wheels under the feet), and we put our offices in the other room.
Lamp BHV, table Ikea, door workshop Leroy Merlin, wallpaper 4murs *.
It is when we exchange table and the small living room in the large room, to make small dinners for example.
And that's when one receives world, There is a large table under the canopy (garlands of light has been, the evening the canopy reflects small lamps it is super nice).
When I was in college / beginning of school I saw of a veeeeeery jinxes everything that could seem me a little extreme music. I felt very strong to the urban legend of “metal groups hide subliminal in their songs messages so their fans commit suicide” and others “If you listen to Nirvana you'll finish drugged”. All the theatrical side around some groups made me downright Pinball, and I was hyper impressed by those who dressed all in black with some big shoes haircell with chains and the piercing in high school (I expected their suicide from one day to another also).
And then I know not why, but the year of my bin ended that fascinate me and I listened to pretty much everything that could scare me throughout my teens. Nothing too hardcore nor, I spent just looped Korn albums, Marilyn Manson, S&Metallica M. I remember reading fascinated, almost in secret, the very bad book by Marilyn Manson released in 2000 (I believe) Virgin mega store from gare Montparnasse in the meantime my train and be told “but hey it's actually caisses for whatever yucky but all this is just a farce to get scared as when we look at a horror movie”. And as I loved horror movies necessarily I dug.
They listened to groups a little dummies with my sister in our room, genus Mass Hysteria, with the poster for contraddiction blase hung somewhere just because our mother found it horrible. And piss off his parents when one is in high school it is not price.
All this long intro for you say that it has me mi amused, Mi a little disappointed me take Pikes on social networks when I posted photos of the Hellfest where I was recently. As if I had gone to my Poser. For that I just have to go to Rock in seine instead of me 800 terminals round trip, Camper parking during 4 days and pee in a chemical toilet.
I went there because I really want to go there, share everything with my buddies and laugh, see incredible concerts, live at the single rate of concerts during 3 days and discover a whole bunch of groups that I never knew.
And I have lived much more because the atmosphere was crazy. It was the festival of tolerance where you could eat a sandwich as a gluten-free vegan burrito steak. I've seen people come in family, papi, Children, small children, No matter how disguised people : by toucan, in jesus, in Papa Smurf, guys dressed up as maid, Disney Princess or.
I saw a little girl of 12 years having fun like crazy to do air guitar on a table during a concert, people enter the zip line above the crowd. I have no photos of this because I have no great talent to take strangers in picture (I'm shy) and especially I spent my time standing on a crate to listen to music than to take pictures.
I myself am somewhat Avenged on the decorations before entering the festival. It was pretty stunning, It seemed to suddenly enter another universe, and all of this attention to unneeded details gave the feeling that everything was especially made to Karami.
I giggled a lot, full of music discovered, Sung “I want to know what love is” departing on the Ferris wheel, seen for the first time groups of my 18 years in concert.
I had already understood that those who belong to a minority or who are passionate about a counter culture are often much more tolerant and nice people than the average long (not all of course, There are idiots everywhere), but then this HellFest was my ultimate evidence.
Very hard, I hope to return next year (tickets soar even before that programming be announced). And thanks to my friends for these 4 days of madness <3
When I have a problem, I am rather the sort to take care immediately now viiiite it is necessary that a solution is URGENT (and I thought that I was not stressed kind really !).
Then when I decided to take care of my problem of stress I have sought solutions to short and long term.
Short term first, because it was that I found a good way to calm me in periods where I am especially manned (If overloaded) and it occupies my mind and prevents me from sleeping. Tous my best stuff anti-insomnie do not work I'm really stressed.
I myself am so created a small ritual the days where I feel that it reached me the most. It's pretty easy to identify in fact I have a little more harm a breathe and need to inspire deeply several times per day (one of the glaring symptoms that my doctor had pointed the finger at the first time).
Warning tip of madness I have run a bath ! Scoop ! Breaking News !
Yes but I put myself in a very special atmosphere.
I turn off the lights and I turn on 2-3 eucalyptus candle (for RES-ft-RER). And I creates a somewhat romantic atmosphere (I love watching the light of the candle that is reflected in the water).
I turn on app Noisly on which I put sounds foliage, the rain and the storm (storm at bottom). I balance the sound bottomed balloons on a small speaker that I take in my bathroom
Once I installed it, I look at the ceiling, breathing and imagining my body in water cm by cm. from the toes to the head, then I read a book while listening to the storm.
And it has become my ritual, I believe that the important thing is to be his thing in itself, with a whole bunch of reassuring elements. Drops of essential oils I almost have the impression that they are magical when I put them in my bath, have a ritual almost gives the impression that it was discovered an ancient secret to get better.
The first time I wanted to make me a bath of madness I myself am somewhat loupée, I wanted to reproduce the incredible feeling I had felt at the spa “liquid room” in Berlin in their flotation bath (in the dark with music in the water), and I poured 1 kg of salt in my bath. I have not flown and it scraped me buttocks all along : null !
After I have other genre techniques to make large puzzles (sort parts that empty head), listen to the soundtrack of little woman (It soothes me), do the coloring. But my super stormy bath is by far what makes me more good.
I barely beginning to understand how to address this problem of stress, long-term, It's going to ask me quite some work, because I will not change from one day to the next. It is my way of life has always been so it will still take a little time to learn how to better put into perspective. Deceive the enemy in my tub in all cases works pretty well at the moment.
If you have hints characters I'm interested ;)
