Concrete and wood

Would you use these two in your home, together? I’m not a big fan of concrete when it comes to living spaces, the coldness of this material makes me shiver when only thinking about it. Of course, the wood warms things up a bit yet I still feel I wouldn’t put concrete floors in my home (plus who needs so much gray color?). I do like how concrete and wood look though – one has to be real bold to have the combo in his home.

“This is glamorous”

We all need a bit of glamorous every once in a while. The need increases on cold winter days when there’s not much of it our clothing and living, generally speaking. So to get your dose of everything beautiful, glittery, feminine head to This is Glamorous tumblr (my new virtual crush). The place is gorgeous – I promise, you won’t regret.

Have a lovely start of the week!

Friday Inspiration

It’s time for Friday’s one picture post :), but wait to see what picture! It’s a delightful living room, airy and light, with an insanely gorgeous settee, enormous windows, a calming fireplace, eclectic and stylish – are you intrigued? That room feels like a collection of different eras’ details as it has bits of classic glamour, modern designs and I even spied touches of Scandinavian! Can you believe all that together? You’re definitely intrigued now, right? :)

Have a fabulous Friday, loves! xo

Must-visit spot: The Grand Mosque

Wouldn’t it be amazing to go to Abu Dhabi for a relaxing vacation filled with sightseeing? Wouldn’t it be awesome to see The Grand Mosque there (also called Sheikh Zayed Mosque)? I’m daydreaming right now about that and luckily I can also see some pictures shot by Jamie from the beautiful From me to you who happens to be there now. That place is indeed grand and so majestic. So much attention to details, I was left speechless upon seeing those images. Remembering the saying ’a picture is worth a thousand words’ I leave you now to see everything by yourself. More pictures in Jamie’s blog post.

Kate Spade paper

Remember yesterday I mentioned I found my idol? Forget that, today I found my idol and it’s – drum roll, please – Kate Spade! Who am I kidding, I don’t have just one idol, the list is endless and they’re all equally divine. Ok, back to Kate Spade. I came across her paper delights the other day and couldn’t take my eyes off that gorgeousness. I’m a huge stationery nerd (meaning I’m totally obsessed with paper goodies like notebooks, cards, envelopes etc.), so I was thrilled to see that the paper collection of Kate Spade is just as one would imagine it – stripes, colors, dots and lots of golden details – heaven!

Black & white home office

My love affair with black and white is a known issue for everyone, so nothing too shocking in this post. I mean not shocking as you could guess I’ll be dying over this post’s chicness. Confession: I have never seen such a fabulous home office designed around black and white. Seriously, it’s to die for – Nina from Stylizimo is my new idol (her home office we’re speaking about). As every black and white space, this home office is simple yet not simplistic, it’s very inspiring and laid back, it’s comfy and serene – could not ask for more, don’t you agree?

I see zebras on the wall

Ok, not really, it was a sort of an intro :). I’m so in love with the well-known zebra wallpaper, aren’t you? It’s so very cool, whimsical, but traditional all at the same time. The best it’s that it can fit any room, but truth to be told I’ve seen it mostly in bathrooms and I’m not sure why. I would gladly use it in a living room or even a kid’s room – what do you think?

Kate Spade used it in her bathroom, Miles Redd decorated with it, so I guess it’s worth giving it a try. Would you?

Happy Monday!

To SMEG or not to SMEG?

By now you figured what will the post be about, right? The legendary fridge, coveted by so many, afforded by fewer, but absolutely loved by all – SMEG. Today these refrigerators come in every possible color which makes it even cooler than it actually is. You can choose mint, pink, black or cream or you can have them all –  I would, because they’re that delicious! So what do you say – to Smeg or not to Smeg? :)

Color+Inspiration: Crayola Taupe

I have the feeling that even though tangerine was named the color of 2012 we’ll be seeing a lot of nude and I’m pretty sure taupe will be among the trendsetters this season. And not every taupe nuance, but crayola taupe which is close the Chanel Particuliere, you know the nail polish? It’s just as soothing as pale pink/peach is (less feminine perhaps), but it’s so much more modern in my opinion – I guess I’ve seen a lot of soft pales lately. Earthy colors will always be a good alternative to any color, so while we’re at backups, let’s make the best of them! Yay for taupe!
