Best of 2012 {your favorite posts}

This is the top of 2012… what was talked most about, viewed or re-pinned lots. Another year past by and with the blog nearly 5 years online, I never thought I would still be here 😉 And Waugh!! This weekend I saw the counter of my blog passing the 3 million! As I was talking with some fellow bloggers over lunch last week, we said, with most readers clicking a like or pinning straight away, we sometimes have no clue who is reading our posts and how great it would be to see you leave a comment to say hello now and then 😉 I really love to read them and it makes me often click on the link and explore new places 😉  

Thank you all so much for your kindness and friendship in the last year and most of all for being such a loyal bunch of readers and coming back post after post! Also a warm welcome to all who joined over the last months as well! I hope to see and hear lots more from you in the next year! 

I wish you all a very healthy and happy new year, ROCK ON XXX

The home of Andrea Falkner Campi designed by my Italian design hero, Paola Navone. Meeting Paola Navone in person this year in Paris was also one of my personal favorite moments of 2012: An Industrial white home designed by Paola Navone

This picture from the stunning bedroom of the daughter of fashion designer Hanne Graumann by Wichman and Bendsen I scannend from Elle Decoration. In this post about bedrooms with chalkboard walls 

Probably one of the most pinned pictures of last year is this tipi. A picture by Jeltje Janmaat for Sukha Amsterdam , a concept store in Amsterdam. See the whole post here: Welcome to the wonderfull world of Sukha-Amsterdam

In 2011 I showed a picture of what I thought was the perfect picture. A year later I found a picture from another view of the same room. Seeing how many of you saw this post makes me believe that you to thought it was all perfect once again! : Another perfect picture

You also loved the updates on my kitchen renovation and my babbling about concrete floors, beautiful lamps. Kitchen Inspiration and my masterplan.  I got quit some emails from people telling me on how they made their own masterplan and just started finally changing their homes. The finished pictures were shown on Emma’s Designblogg. Her blog was one of the first Scandinavian blogs I started following years ago and I am happy to finally meet her in person this next year.

I first showed The Parisian home of Paola Navone in 2011( Simple + Serene + Paris ) And was happy to show more about it this last year. What I am loving most of the work and home of Paola Navone is the combination between designer pieces and self made really simple things like the huge dining table in the kitchen : More of the Parisian loft of Paola Navone

You also really loved my Pinterest snapshots, And I loved making them. If you have a Pinterest account yourself then you are very welcome to join me at my Vosgesparis Pinterest accountMore about these snaphot posts: Pinterest snapshots & Pinterest snapshots-part 2

This picture of my studio I have re-found on lots of other blogs and pin boards Although spending much of time on my kitchen table. I still use my studio to make photos and collect ideas: New pictures from my studio  

I made lots of moodboards with washi tape for a long time now and this year I used several clipboards around the house. In my bedroom I have a huge one! Not only can I store a good deal of my poster collection on it I also love the nonchalant and industrial look of it.

One of your favorites was also the chalkboard weekend I did en of January and I loved how you all sent in ideas and pictures: Blackboard walls + pallet benches
