Everyday fabulous {July 30th, 2010}+Happy weekend!

So, my friends, it’s Friday! It’s right before the weekend and I couldn’t be more thrilled as I’ll have two days to spend with my family, a BBQ on Sunday and lots of rest! I prepared for you an Everyday fabulous picture which will inspire you for the weekend and I’m wishing you all a great two-days relaxing time!

How fantastic is this inspiration wall? And the Anthropologie mugs? What about the Eiffel lamp? Everything of this picture is just amazing! Hope you enjoyed it! Have a fabulous weekend! See you all next week!


Where I am now

Hi everyone! I missed you all so much! I missed blogging and reading all of your inspiring blogs so much! I’m at home now, feels so good to eat my mom’s food and walk through the streets of my hometown. I miss my husband though and can’t wait for him to come here next week! While I’m still recovering after too much food and too many moments when I did nothing, I want to share with you some pictures of my country, Moldova, so peaceful and always inspiring!

Everyday fabulous {July 28th, 2010}

Good morning everyone! As you all remember I’m leaving today to see my parents and I still didn’t finish packing! So for now here’s a quick post with a fabulous picture to make your day even more beautiful than it is!

*image via found thanks to Susannah Conway

The bedroom from above is from the villa of Annelies and Jean-Jaques  in Bali and it’s all about contrasts! The washed-out white beam is very rough and a bit industrial, while the DREAMY (!) floral bedding and those big pillows on the floor are romantic and very comfy! Although the bedroom is decorated with natural tones (the furniture is mostly warm brown, except the gray piece which is very stylish!) it’s very eclectic and confusing yet inviting! Did you see the angled door on the left? Now that’s catchy and so Asian! I hope you liked this picture! My next blog post will be from another country, now I’m off to finish packing! See you soon! xoxo, Ludmila

Margaret Donaldson Interiors

Margaret Donaldson is a Charleston based interior designer running her firm since 1988 and she has a very unique and warm style. I think if I’d need to make up a list of my favorite designers, Margaret would be a part of it! The rooms that result from Margaret’s talent are inviting and very attractive, with a play of colors, patterns and fabrics, the variety of styles used altogether are layered perfectly well and aren’t clumsy or overwhelming, instead it’s that eye-candy we all seek for our homes. One thing I noticed while looking through Margaret Donaldson‘s portfolio and this is the oriental rug used in most of the rooms, even bathroom! The effect this detail has on a room’s look is stunning and if you have an oriental rug – you have a gorgeous room!

Everyday fabulous {July 26th, 2010}

If you’re in blogland, perhaps you already saw the pictures of the gorgeous shop owned by Anna Spiro, founder of Absolutely beautiful things, Black & Spiro Unveiled. Anna did an amazing job putting together those colors & details which make the shop a stunning & dreamy place! But one thing caught my attention: the tutu desk which Anna  designed by herself for her office. Please take a look:

It’s dramatic, daring and although it’s black, it seems VERY passionate to me! Just look how fantastic it looks against the white walls & floor, the only things which are a little distracting are the lampshade, painting and the inspiration board, they’re softening that dramatic look and are making it little cheerier. As I said, Anna DIY-ed the tutu desk, who wants to give it a try? :)

On another note, I need your feedback. Aren’t these Everyday fabulous posts too overwhelming and too often? Maybe I should reduce them and post one picture every week? I’d really need to know this, so please let me know what do you think!

Serbian Made: Danijela Momić

Hi, lovelies! How are you doing? I hope your Monday is going well. Please excuse my late blog post, I’ve been busy with my upcoming trip, organizing, cleaning and packing is what I’ve been doing all day today! Nonetheless, I didn’t forget about the Serbian Monday, which means you’ll get to meet another Serbian designer, who loves everything handmade and is creating pieces of jewelry which will make you be heals-over-head! Danijela Momić (pronounce Momich) was so kindly to let me post her work on creamylife and needless to mention how in love I am with all the handmade rings, earrings, necklaces and more! I mean, her talent is unbelievably huge and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share with you these beauties! Take a look:

Everyday fabulous {July 23rd, 2010}

Before signing off until Monday, I must share with you a picture which I thought is really REALLY fabulous! It’s a picture where masculine meets feminine, vintage meets modern and altogether this is what makes that image superb and so inspiring!

*via Skona Hem

Tell me what do you feel when you see the dark blue Lotus wallpaper against the pretty, feminine violets? I told you, perfection! I’m wishing you a fantastic weekend, enjoy it and I’ll see you on Monday, lovelies!

P.S. On Monday my giveaway sponsored by CSN Stores ends, so you have time to enter until then!

P.P.S. On Wednesday next week I’m traveling to see my parents (to another country), I’ll be with them for two weeks and then they’ll come to visit us here and attend my wedding :), so blogging will be lighter until August 15th. I’ll try to pop up here every day and post at least once per day, but in case I don’t show up, you know what I’m up to :).

Bathroom & Personality

Hi everyone and happy Friday to you all! Today I want to speak about bathrooms and you know why? Because something tells me that a bathroom speaks the best about the personality of the owner of it. Being a very intimate space (maybe even more intimate than the bedroom), bathroom designs show us whether the person loves romantic & light bathrooms, with white walls and florals seen in the shower curtain, or the owner tends to have a modern, high-end bathroom, with stylish colors and accessories. Either way, I intensely think that if you show me your bathroom, I’ll be able to sketch your personality and name some features you have :). No, I don’t do clairvoyance, I guess here is more about analyzing, what do you think?

Everyday fabulous {July 22nd, 2010}

Here I am now with my second Everyday fabulous post. I came across the picture I’m gonna post today here and was absolutely astonished by it! Without further ado, here it is:


This picture is from Elle Decoration Italy and it shows the home of Italian designer Matteo Thun and his wife Susanne. This is the wall of their dining room all covered with tiles of different beautiful colors and patterns and isn’t it fantastic?! I can’t stop staring! The room however doesn’t look over-decorated because of the white ceiling which creates a pretty balance of eclectic and crispy. What do you think about this dining area? Isn’t it perfection?
