Ana Kraš and Maison et Objet

Maison et Objet is an exhibition which will take place in Paris, in the period between September 3rd and 7th and it’s all about interior design! Aw, I can’t tell you how much I want to go! However, learning that a Serbian designer, Ana Kraš, will be there made me feel very proud (again) of the beautiful country I live in and of the VERY talented people who live here! Now a few things about Ana – she’s a young lady, with modern views on what’s called design, creating items which are of much use in one’s home! Seriously, many designers have weird creations (at least seems to me), unlike Ana’s work which is what reminds me of a home, with all the adjacent details meant to create a comfy space. Here are some of Ana’s work:

Stefan Thurmann Photography

Stefan Thurmann is a Hamburg-based photographer who takes some seriously wonderful pictures! Of course his work wouldn’t be the same without the brilliant stylists he’s working with, but nonetheless his eye catches the beauty of what he’s shooting, far beyond what we all see. In Stefan’s portfolio you’ll see calming, neutral rooms, with cozy blankets and wood all over, as well as some other shoots, more contrasting and stylishly edgy. His work was published in many magazines and without teasing you more, here are few pictures from Stefan’s portfolio which appealed to me the most!

Serbian Made: Di Vogo paintings

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? As you can see, this weekend creamylife got a redesign and I’d LOVE to know what do you think about it! In other news, today’s Serbian made feature is a gentleman (for the first time!) and he’s an independent painter with a big talent and a creative sense of beauty. I came across his work last week and that same instant I knew he must be on creamylife, joining in for a Serbian Monday treat. While looking through the portfolio of the artist, Dragan Ilic aka Di Vogo, I was amazed by the astonishing work – paintings which show off a woman’s beauty, splashes of color and daring feelings and let me be straight, if before I’ve never fallen for paintings, now this changed and I started noticing the immense beauty of a well done painting. Take a look at Dragan’s work:

Hi everyone! Wanted to stop by and wish a wonderful, fabulous and just unforgettable weekend! Not before saying a grand “thank you” to all of you, for visiting creamylife every day, for taking the time to leave comments (which make my day, that’s a sure thing!), for all your support on Twitter and Facebook (through mentions, RTs and likes). This is an indescribable feeling to know that many of you enjoy my posts and maybe find them inspiring for your own purposes! For this I’m saying:

Old Belgrade

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!

Retro Interiors: Mad Men style

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:

P.S. Happened the second time to me when I got crazy about interiors seen in a movie or series: first was Julia’s kitchen (Julie & Julia) and now this. Just wondering what’s next :)

Trunks and suitcases

…not only they are a beautiful, stunning detail in a room, trunks and suitcases also might be of much help if used as side tables in bedroom or coffee table in living room. Not to mention the knocking off effect if looking at them as pieces of decor. You won’t be surprised if I say that I absolutely adore when the above mentioned trunks and suitcases are vintage looking, retro styled and showing off  the beauty of the time which left marks making them utterly charming and timeless. I’d give up all those modern, expensive tables for a priceless Louis Vuitton vintage suitcase that will inspire me every day, brightening up my life!

Home Tour: Designer Meredith Hutchison

Summer days are almost saying “adios” and now I can’t help myself but be sad that this wonderful season is coming to its end. I’ll definitely miss its airy and breezy colors and most of all I’ll miss the summer-inspired posts in blogland as I figure that everybody will focus on fall inspired interiors and colors. However, I’d like to slowly say “bye” to summer on creamylife with a home tour which is my dream home that’s taken life. Designer Meredith Hutchison re-designed her Cape Cod beach cottage, transforming it in a magical place, perfect for spending the summer with family, friends and refreshing drinks. I love her use of colors: white, navy and light blue paired with earthy browns is just amazingly light yet vibrant. The re-designed home has style, but it has a warm, home-y feeling and I’m just wondering when can I move in :).

Pattern love: Paisley

Hi people! Today was a busy yet productive day (if you joined me on Twitter or Facebook you know what I mean), so I’m on a slower wave right now, recovering after exciting moments. I’ve prepared the other day a pattern inspired post (remember my crush on them, right? ), so let’s talk paisley today, shall we? Its floral design whispers romance and femininity and the feeling I get when seeing it is all about charm and timeless chicness. Here are a few examples of paisley inspired spaces:

Serbian Made: Love Leyla

Good morning, my dears! Welcome to another week and to a Serbian Monday here on creamylife. I know for some time I skipped  bringing the weekly slice of Serbian design to you, but I’m back now, regularly keeping to indulge your mind with beautiful creations made by Serbian artists. Today I have to share with you the wonderful work of a sweet young lady who simply adores creating accessories! No, she didn’t study art or so, she is just enamored with everything handmade and loves to bring joy to her loyal clients. Enter Jelena, the gorgeous artist behind Love Leyla shop and blog. And because we both love creamylife readers so much, Jelena found time to write a few words about herself and her talent.

“My name is Jelena Glisic and I stand behind LoveLeyla website and brand. I am still a student of Faculty of Traffic and Transport Engineering, Department of Telecommunication Traffic and Networks. Surprising, ha? :)

I started making jewelry 5 years ago and I was very much into beads. Today I use so many different materials when creating new pieces.
