Well hello again. After this morning’s post I feel like I have all my ducks in a row, so we can move on :). I know that the traditional Serbian Monday isn’t that traditional anymore (I skipped it a few times), but today I have another feature for you: a local brand called manufaktura cdR, owned by Dragana Romic. Dragana sent me an email presenting her work, so I couldn’t avoid sharing it with you. That’s what Dragana says: “My brand is called manufaktura cdR where R stands for original, recycle and redesign. I am making jewelry out of materials that keep certain information, mostly out of paper, filmstrips, diapositives, negatives etc.” and I really think her jewelry is like a breathe of fresh air, a modern approach to the well-known earrings or headbands. Not to mention the fact the jewelry is made of recycled paper, filmstrips and more, talk about earth-friendly designs.
Hello, my loveliest friends! Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate this holiday (even though Serbians don’t have it I do celebrate!). Today I have to share with you a darling shop from Choomich (I know, I know, lots of talking about Choomich (like here), but I can’t help it, it’s the only Design District here and it’s fantastic!). The adorable shop belongs to a lovely young fashion designer, Emilija Petrovic. Decorated with pink and gray (hello! a killer color combo!) the boutique has stripes on one wall, while the other two walls are plain pink and gray. Emilija’s shop is gorgeous and it feels like a girl’s room, with all the adjacent accessories: butterflies, minisized shoe collection, a metallic pouf and clothes, plenty of amazing clothes! I snapped some shots, but they do no justice to how beautiful that place is in real life.
Hello! How is everyone? Today as a Serbian made feature I have a fellow blogger and her friend who create absolutely stunning funky, modern jewelry from plexiglass – please meet Marina (see her blog here) and Anja, creative minds behind RINGeRAJA! Last week I got my twitter necklace made by RINGeRAJA and I LOVE it, seriously, not taking it out! The lovely girls are working on their site and on the variety of items they’ll be selling, so you can see this post as a sneak peek of the future strikingly famous RINGeRAJA! Here are some of their designs:
Hello, everyone! How are you, my friends? Today I have a very cute post to share with you! On Saturday I was in Choomich Design District (a renovated shopping mall in Belgrade that is now a place which gathered many fashion designers, who have their stores there). I went there for a special reason, I knew that Remake has its own boutique in Choomich and I was dying to see in person how does it look. FYI, Remake is a brand invented by two lovely ladies, Antea and Jovana, who started their business with ceramics, but expanded it later in time and they now have prints, decorative letters, wall decor and much more. The store in Choomich is absolutely heart-melting, beyond cute and will make you happy just if you look at its design!
Hello, friends! Today is Monday and as you all know, Serbian Monday is here for a slice of local loveliness. Today I have as a featured artist a young company, Unicut Designers, founded by two designers who are creating wall stickers! That’s the first company that big here in Serbia and so far the only one doing this and by this I mean designing wall decals as you wish, cutting them and applying on the wall. They can do whatever your heart desires! You can choose the pattern and shape, colors and size – can you imagine the freedom you’re given? I think I’d love on every single wall their stickers! Not only you can order customized decals which are exactly what you need, Unicut Designers‘ collection of stickers in stock is pretty impressive! From urban to floral to funny stickers – they have your back on everything! P.S. For now you can see on their site samples of urban and decor stickers, but within the next few days, the gallery will be completely filled, so remember to check back!
Hello! I have for you an exciting post featuring the home of a Serbian designer and architect, one of the owners of Antipod Studio, specializing in interior + furniture design and architecture (will blog about Antipod Studio in the near future). Milan Stefanovic designed his home by himself, interacting modern style with a livable atmosphere and a neat look. Seriously, his home is so visually clean and uncluttered that it’s relaxing for the eyes to look at! Milan used few of Ana Kras designs, like the hive lamp and noodle side table, but of course I spotted some pieces of furniture branded Antipod Studio, like the U-turn chair and 100sto side table.
Hello, creamylife-ers! How was your weekend? Are you ready for a new week? I sure am! Will kick off this week with a Serbian talent, Iva Novičić behind Iva did it.! Iva is a young lady, whose passion is handmade and jewelry, so she put these two together and started creating handmade jewelry, which is being sold in Supermarket Concept Store (I know I’ve mentioned this store like a thousand times, but it’s really fabulous, so don’t blame me, please!). Iva has a beautiful collection of earrings, necklaces, pendants and bracelets which is sure to satisfy everyone, big or small! I personally love how Iva uses colors within her creations: vibrant hues, mixed muted colors or juicy brights – she does it all good! Here are a few of her pieces, the rest you can check on her Facebook page. Locals, if you’d like to purchase any of this jewelry, look for Iva did it. in Supermarket or contact Iva by mail, which can be found on her page.
Hello everyone and welcome to a Serbian Monday! This week’s featured artist is a cutie aka Iva Brkic aka Keewee, a young lady in love with ceramics and handmade, living in Belgrade and creating the most gorgeous ceramic jewelry, tableware, home ware and much more. How did I find out about Iva? I need to give credit for this to Jelena, artist behind LoveLeyla (you can recall her from this post), whom I met last week and who was wearing a sweet and heart-melting brooch which made me fall in love instantly! Well, the brooch was made by Iva and I couldn’t be more thrilled when Iva agreed to be featured on creamylife and even more when she told me she reads my blog, that was flattering :). You know, makes me very proud of myself to have started Serbian Made category, because I got to meet so many wonderful people through it! The talent I’ve seen in the past couple of months is mind-blowing, so creamylife helped me a lot in knowing better Serbian artists and their aesthetics. Iva is no exception! Her work is amazing!
Good Monday morning, friends! I hope you had a fabulous weekend, but it’s now time for a new week, new expectations and plenty of work to be done! I’m kicking off this new week with a Serbian made post (how unpredictable, right?), please enter Kristina, crafter behind Dugmence site! Kristina is creating what can only be called dreamy and so close to our hearts – bags, purses, wallets and how do we love all this, don’t we? But Kristina’s work isn’t just useful, it’s also so pretty, I could easily die for it! The bags, purses and everything the rest is handmade by Kristina, designed by her from scratch and you can feel the huge talent she has by looking at the designs! Besides bags, purses and wallets (which I focused on in this post), seems like Kristina is attracted by patchwork and she loves to create bedspreads made with this technique (you must see those bedspreads! they’re gorgeous!). For now, here are those things that us, girls, can’t live without!
Good Monday morning! Yesterday on Twitter I realized that it’s almost end of September and I still didn’t put together my monthly fashion board! Also, today is Monday, so traditionally we should have on creamylife a Serbian Made post! Plus I have some news to share with you! Today’s post is 3 in 1 and I think this is a pretty good deal! So, my exciting news: last week perhaps you already heard that I’m a columnist on the newly launched fashion and lifestyle online Serbian magazine Wannabe Magazine, writing about my love for interior design and beautiful spaces. You can read my posts there twice a month. Some days ago, they had a post about Belgrade street style, so now instead of creating a style board, I’ll post pictures of how people here get dressed on a September day as seen in the downtown. And this will do the trick for my Serbian made category, right?
