Ok, so I’ll admit, I’ve heard about this Sydney-based interior designer very few times, so I wasn’t really aware of what I’m missing. That’s why I was happy to stumble upon her site today and dive into all that inspiration and just abundance of creativity. Jacinta Preston is my hero. She’s mixing old and new, vintage and high end, muted and bright colors and she’s a dream come true. I was fascinated by her talented eye and fresh approach to either kids’ rooms, living areas or bedrooms. Jacinta Preston creates interiors which are perfectly livable yet nailed to perfection and almost untouchably chic. My first thought when seeing her portfolio was: ‘this lady definitely knows how to do thrift-shopping’ :). Here are some Jacinta Preston designs:
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 and happy Sunday! Wanted to wish you a lovely and relaxing day, but not before thanking you all for visiting creamylife. I know, I said it a lot of times, but please know that my gratitude for you is indescribably huge and I want to heartily express it as much as I can! Your comments are the sun rays of my day and I savor every single word you put into them. And I also know there are many of you who read my posts without leaving comments, I appreciate you as well and am grateful for your inactive support! Once again, thank you to all!
There has been a lot of buzz around animal prints and their use in homes lately. Nowadays cow and zebra hide rugs are a must in a modern, eclectic home. However, I’m pretty confused about how do I feel about this trend. I mean a faux cowhide rug is totally fine, but what about decorating with faux snakeskin? Stunning or hideous? I heard different opinions about it, but I leave it to you to decide is faux snakeskin in a home yay or nay? I found some examples to share with you and am anxiously waiting for your opinions in the comments below.
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.
And Eddie Ross did it again! With Jaithan Kochar of course. Their Thanksgiving table setting in the latest Lonny is gorgeous and I literally gasped when that stunner was in my eyes. Decorated with cobalt blue, gold and orange the table was perfect: glamorous yet cozy, modern yet rustic. Oh Eddie, what have you done? The Thanksgiving table will always stay in my heart as the image of a magic holiday, inspiring me to take out my most precious china, use my embroidered tablecloth and add hints of gold to ANY table setting, not only festive ones! I know this post could go as Thanksgiving inspiration, but I thought emphasizing the amazing color combination is just a must for a color enthusiast like me :). Cobalt blue, gold and orange is equal to bliss in my book (thanks to Eddie for this, before I never thought about these three colors together)!
A more laid-back post today for us all to soak in and think about. I was saying yesterday that my aesthetics is going through some changes at the moment and if awhile back I was blown away by bright colors and cheery atmosphere, lately it’s more about soft neutrals and romantic shots. Hence the different posts you might see in the future on creamylife (I promise they won’t be less inspiring!).
Today I want… to be here
Hello everyone! Good morning and welcome to a new week. Taking another break from Serbian Made, but this doesn’t mean the post I have prepared for you is less inspiring and fabulous. But first of all tell me how are you all, how was your weekend? Did you have snow yet (they say we’ll have snow at the end of this week, so I guess I’m excited about it…or not?).
So you know how big sucker I am for chairs and stools, right? What happens when some killer chairs and stools are galvanized, with a worn industrial look which feel like a breath of fresh air (paradoxical?!) in a modern, country or any other style? I’ll tell you what happens – my new crush: Tolix chairs and stools! I’ve been having my eyes on them for awhile and just find them utterly attractive and charming! Their rough look speaks about the unique style, very contemporary and style-friendly aesthetics of the owner. They look gorgeous in ANY room, seriously! Take a look:
I don’t know how about you, but I’m seriously dying to have snow and winter holidays and all this bliss! Maybe it’s because I’ve seen too much winter wonderland shots lately or because the weather smells like winter not only in the morning, but all day…Nonetheless, I’m officially in a winter magic mood and these pictures are too stunning to be ignored.
Happy weekend, friends!
