Who doesn’t need storage space in their life? I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many drawers and closets. Even better if they’re some vintage deliciousness a-la-post-office-storage, right? Somehow they are SO charming and look so pretty in a room, I’d say it’s an unexpectedly modern item, totally vintage inspired though. Complicated, but well, you get the point.
A little of a laid-down post today. I’m still obsessing over everything French, dreaming about rich textures, soothing colors, crystal chandeliers and bits of glamor, lots of it! A girl can dream, right? These beautiful interiors are feast for my eyes and I hope they will be for yours too. And tell me, aren’t the pastels colors and that delicious gray just breathtaking? Pretty gorgeous neutral shades.
I’ve heard many opinions about shabby chic style, some say its era is over, some call it (excuse this expression) shabby sh*t, others like it only if it’s not in their own homes. I’m in none of these categories. I love this style and for me it will probably last forever. I like it because it’s dreamy and flirty (yet doesn’t feel girly at all!), it’s all about pretty roses, ruffles, white color (washed out, that is), lots of wood and an overall very cozy feeling! Oh yes, and stunning crystal chandeliers, which will blow your mind away! So describing it this way, what’s not to love here? Say whatever you want, on creamylife shabby chic gets a huge yay! :)
A while back I received two copies of the always stunning Elle Interior Norway (huge thank you for this!) and I thought I must share glimpses with you all. The magazines were absolutely gorgeous and inspiring and I’m so frustrated our Elle Dekor just can’t pull together a similar issue every month (remember they were doing quarterly? well, now the skipped winter issue, ugh). Nonetheless, here are some glamorous, Scandinavian inspired images with mainly black and white, which will surely feel like fresh air in your life at the moment, among all the Christmas-y colorful inspiration! Talk about Scandinavian Maximalism.
On Saturday I was in Supermarket as you all know. So while the other girls were lusting after designer clothes and shoes (they’re allowed, after all they’re fashion bloggers) I was having my eyes on lamps, furniture, pottery and this kind of things. That’s when I spotted Muuto, a company bringing a modern twist into Scandinavian design. Supermarket carries their products and I was simply in love with Muuto stuff! FYI, muutos means perspective in Finnish and I think that this is a pretty amazing name for a company. Muuto’s products are clean, modern and the best of them is that they’re colorful and vibrant! I needed to share with you my find, so please enjoy!
Happy Friday all! So happy this week’s almost done. How was your week? Mine was pretty exciting and busy and the weekend looks like will be the same. But that’s a good thing :). A Friday post for you about oriental rugs, as lately I’ve been drawn to them a lot, because they’re just fabulous! Everything about them is perfection: the patterns, the texture and the popping warm colors are somethings every home would appreciate a lot! And the catchiest part about oriental rugs is that they look killer in a modern space, creating an edgy contrast which will only increase your home’s stylish coziness! And although my home country’s culture involved pretty much decorating with oriental rugs (which means I lived all my life having a fabulous ethnic rug in my room), I now look at them in a different way, loving more its look and effect. Here are a few examples of oriental rugs in modern spaces.
Lately I’ve been drawn to stools and specifically to industrial stools in a modern kitchen with a vintage twist. I’m loving the contrast between wood kitchen island+cabinets & metal stools, that’s a real statement for a space, don’t you think? And the best part about these stools is that they can be easily found at flea markets and would look stunning without any renovation/restoration. And yes, these stools can also be in different colors, but to be straight I like more their look as if they’d been used for long time, the aged feeling makes them even more charming! Oh and another thing – don’t they look amazing in a rustic inspired kitchen, with all that wood and shabby atmosphere? I think they do! Here are some examples of stools I’d absolutely love to bring into my kitchen!
Hello, friends! Today is Friday and let me congratulate everybody with this, we made it! And for today’s post I’ve prepared some pictures which are very close to my heart for many reasons (some of them unknown). If you recall my yesterday’s post, you also remember that I adore retro style, old looking pictures and that overall atmosphere which was dominating in the 20′s, 30′s, but also 50′s and 60′s. So today I’d like to share with you some pictures of the old Belgrade, the city where I live now (you all saw how does it look now in this post) and I cannot begin to describe the excitement I feel to look at these images, to see how did the city look in the 20′s – mid 30′s. I thought this would be a perfect Friday post - so inspiring, relaxing and heart-warming :). Enjoy!
P.S. Please pay attention at the architecture, isn’t it fabulous? And by the way, these days we still have these buildings and the architecture always impressed me!
Hello, everyone! I know, Mad Men is most likely not new for you, but believe it or not, I just started watching it (living in Europe leads to this kind of consequences). I’m at first season and slowly catching up with all the episodes, hoping that one day I can proudly say that I’m in a row with everybody. And being a new fan of this series, I couldn’t avoid having my eyes on the fabulous cast (of course), their outfits, but most of all on the decoration seen in Mad Men. That 60′s feeling is taking my breath away, leaves me in awe and never ceases to inspire me! From both graphic and floral wallpapers to tufted pieces to earthy colors Mad Men has a special charm to it, something that will take you to that era and you’ll end up digging retro interiors like never before (that’s what happened to me). So now, please enjoy a few pictures of the Mad Men interiors:
