Happy {sparkling} New Year!

We’ve been asking ourselves for a way too long time where has the time gone, pinching ourselves in denial that with every month we’re closer and closer to a year to finish and a new one to start, with new opportunities, exciting moments (or days, or months), joy and laughter, lots of these two! Well, believe it or not we’ve made it – 2010 is about to wave good-bye to us while 2011 is smiling wide, preparing for a group hug. I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am to 2010 for everything it has brought to me: many amazing (virtual) friends, a new job, mind-blowing blog achievements I could only dream of and much, much more! Something tells me 2011 will be better and I heartily believe in this (you should too!). For this New Year’s Eve I predict the sparkle trend, I see it everywhere and dare I say it’s a must? Yes, please!

Happy New Year! I’ll be taking some days off next week, but see you in 2011 anyways! Sending much love to you all!

RICE Denmark

You guys! I think I just came across the happiest, most colorful site EVER! Not that I didn’t know about the Danish company Rice from before, I surely did, but stumbling upon it NOW, when outside is so gray, we have this crazy-end-of-the-year syndrome and our days are definitely everything except stress-free, Rice was a breath of fresh air, a piece of a party for my little heart and just some cheery pretty pictures, not to mention that they carry awesome, beautiful products that you can actually buy! Doesn’t this sound delicious?

Wood in the bedroom

I need to confess to you one thing: as measureless as my design visions can be, it’s not often that I’m totally blown away by rooms, design ideas and trends etc. (I know – hard to believe, I’m always all about ‘ohh’ and ‘ahh’ when it comes to a pretty space). Yet again, many rooms feel stunning at first sight, but after throwing a few more looks at them, they just don’t feel like fitting your style, life or aesthetics and they seem to blend into this immense world of museum-like rooms, where you don’t see yourself living, cooking, playing with your kids or lounging on the couch. You know what I mean?

I definitely have these moments. I was feeling this way about bringing wood indoors (and I mean the large pieces of it, seen in ceiling beams, walls, floors and just an overall wooden construction). It wasn’t my style. Now it is, blame it on the snowy, cold weather. I’m very attracted by wooden rooms, particularly bedrooms, they remind me so much about skiing cabins, where the fireplace and fur throws are rocking the world, making it all so cozy and warm. I mean, wouldn’t you LOVE to spend your winter holidays in a bedroom like this?

Serbian Made: Photographer Miloš Nadaždin

Well, good morning, sweets! Hope you had a lovely Christmas (if you celebrated it) or a great weekend. I’m here with a Serbian Made feature and am ready to introduce you to a huge talent born and living in Serbia: please meet Miloš Nadaždin, photographer who captures far above what your eye can see! He’s a fashion & beauty photographer and the very first instant I saw Miloš’s work I was smitten by those unique and gorgeous pictures! He shoots vintage scenes, sexy and sophisticated ones, relaxed and beach-y scenes and much, much more! I know Miloš Nadaždin is a favorite of many people around here and I definitely understand why – his work is beyond inspiring!

Merry Christmas {and happy weekend!}

Well, my dears, this week has finally come to its end and to say that I’m really happy about it would be an understatement! I’m thrilled it’s the weekend! And although here in Serbia Christmas is being celebrated on January 7th, I still find myself passively celebrating it on December 25th, this means I’ll light a candle, have a glass of wine in my hands and think how lucky I am to have my life exactly the way it is! And so in this festive spirit I leave you for the weekend, may you have warm holidays with your loved ones! Thank you to all of you for making this year so amazing, I couldn’t ask for more! Be blessed and make sure you make this holiday time memorable! xoxo

Home Tour: 1970′s villa

Hi everyone! The other day I came across a 1970′s villa tour and I couldn’t help, but post it here (I’m sure there’ll be lots of you who’ll love it, just like me). You’ll ask why? Here are hints: Scandinavian, washed out colors, plenty of white and pops of bright shades. Oh and stunning artwork! There’s a vintage-y modern vibe injected in those rooms which are enchanting! The home belongs to Marie and Bill and their two children. And I suggest you to read the entire post, I was impressed, to say the least. You all know my love for everything Scandinavian and am seriously thinking my home (you know, the dream home I’ll someday own :D) will be exactly like the one I’m showing you in this post, the below pictures are undoubtedly landing in my inspiration folder. What about you? How your dream home looks like?

Color me pretty {holiday style}

Christmas is right around the corner and I know how stressful last minute decorating might be. So I’m here again, with my two cents and the hope to give you an idea or three. Luckily, I’ve got some help from Leslie and Holly (two amazing women who are simply fabulous, motivating and inspiring to no end! p.s. see my interview with Holly here) and the always gorgeous Color me pretty posts on decor8. While browsing through that loveliness the other day I spotted some Christmas inspired posts, perfectly styled by Leslie who used different color schemes to create various holiday inspired looks for your home. I selected three color palettes and I do believe they’ll leave you speechless and overwhelmed with prettiness (that’s what they did to me!). Enjoy, but don’t forget to check Color me pretty on decor8 in its full glory, so many wonderful images (I adore Leslie and this column!).

{Gorgeous} Photography by Miki Duisterhof

Today while going through my multiple and very inspiring bookmarks I came across a name which caught my eye and spoke to me, whispering a tempting ‘stop’. I’m sure this happened to you at some point, right? Well, you won’t believe how mesmerized I was when I clicked on the category ‘Interiors’. All the pictures were right up my alley, very shabby chic, romantic and even feminine – and what else can a girl ask for after a working day :)? So the magic name is Miki Duisterhof and she’s a photographer, a fabulous one (just wait to see her clients: West Elm, William Sonoma, Veranda and many, many others!). Seriously, I was hypnotized by all that beauty! Here’s what I’m talking about:

Happy Weekend

Hello, my lovelies! I’ve been absent today (again), but this time a had a reason, a good one! I HAVE A JOB! I’m so happy, excited and overwhelmed with joy now, I needed this change in my life SO much! I mean blogging is good, but it’s quite hard to make a living from it, so a daily job was in my plans for a very long while! And it happened! Just for the record, my job is totally not design related, it’s related to what a have a degree in – economy (I bet many of you didn’t even know about this :D). Having a job will not affect blogging in any way and I’ll be posting as usual, however tweeting won’t happen as much as before (unfortunately), but hey – let’s look at the bright side of everything, life goes on and it promises to be better than ever!

Have a lovely weekend all! May all your dreams come true as this is such a blissful feeling (I know it really good :D)! See you on Monday! xoxo
