For me, what is beautiful is peace, contemplation of nature and silence. By silence and peace, I mean having the luxury or make a clear decision to choose what you look at and where you sit with the Self. In my case, it is being away from modern and busy civilisation, buildings (unless from the XVIII century), loud cities and people as much as possible. What is beautiful is the capacity to make daily choices that allow me to build my own sanctuary. What is beautiful is also l’Amour, l’Amour, l’Amour…




I truly believe beauty is rooted from the inner depths of our souls. From the relationships we hold in our lives, our daily habits/diet, exercise, volunteering, helping a friend, being there to just listen….something that is hard for us to do today. We always want to be heard, and are constantly being bombarded with news and social media, but sometimes to just listen, be still, can change lives. I find beauty in the small things in life: a hot cup of green tea, an afternoon with my family and friends, the ability to move my body, a yoga class, a good book.  To me this is love and beauty – truly nourishing my heart, body and soul in every way. Starting from the inside, and only focusing on that, the outside will always work itself out, but you have to take care of yourself first and foremost because no one else will : 100% responsibility for ourselves. Also my favorite beauty tip: SMILE! Oh and a green juice…







What is beautiful to me is happiness and movement.

I admire Charles and Ray Eames a lot. They were creating together and they were in love. I love this picture of them. This is beauty to me.


I love this picture of Sally Mann. It is pure, deep and the light coming out of it is very soothing. I can just stay staring at it for hours. It evokes the organic strength of nature. It has inspired me in so many ways.


This spontaneous picture of my two daughters, Iris and Selma. This is beauty to me.


I think that beauty lies in the most common and simple, sometimes unfair and boring, rituals of our daily lives. Yes to domestic life, to the real joy that I feel when preparing tea or trying to have a conversation that makes sense with my son at breakfast, grocery shopping on Saturdays, the unpleasant lady that I see every day in the bus… Ignore the tiny frustrations and other upsetting emotions in order to keep only what is beautiful…
