Coral & mint kind of week

Happy Monday, sweets! It’s a real spring here and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have so much sun and warm temperatures – I missed this SO much! And that’s why I’m utterly inspired by a color combination now - coral and mint! Truth is I always loved it, but the pastel shades of these two feel so feminine and modern now that I couldn’t resist but share my obsession with you. I found a pretty nursery decorated with mint and coral, take a look and tell me – what’s your favorite color combo this season?

I can’t get enough of coral and mint! And don’t even make me start on the fashion side of the two colors :)

The lucite trend

Are you a lover of lucite furniture pieces or not? I have to admit there is something special about them, something that makes lucite very appealing and modern. Plus the transparency of lucite makes it work in every room, combined with any hues, styled in different ways and I guess there can’t be dilemmas about the color of the sofa in your living room or the color of your vanity in the bedroom when there’s a lucite item right next to it. Works for me!

Happy Brooklyn inspired home

I just came across a happy home indeed. With many colors and bright blooms I can’t decide whether I like more the bold blue of a wall or the hot pink stools. Oh and there are also the red hanging bulbs in the bathroom – can it get better than that? Check it out:

And if you weren’t familiar to Mowie Kay – here’s a perfect way to do so and start your week on a delicious note!

Bathroom TDF

Silly title, I know – it’s supposed to say to die for and literally I could die in exchange for having it! The wood makes it warm, the light makes it majestic and that tub is the cherry on the cake! I can’t stop staring at it, so here it is – stare away yourself :)

Happy women’s day :)

Simple living: Belgian style

It’s always great to see how people around the world decorate their homes. To see different designs, aesthetics and just what people feel comfortable with knowing they’re miles away is a huge gift we’re given these days thanks to the almighty internet. That’s why today we’re traveling to Belgium, to the home of Melanie – the owner of Simple Kids, a shop about children’s clothing (by the way adorable!). Melanie lives in Belgium with her two daughters and her home is simple, stylish, clean and very inviting. We can’t resist taking a peek at it, can we?

Handmade: Colorful tableware

I just came across this etsy shop full of hand painted tableware – Aedriel Originals! Plates with colorful chevrons and stripes or personalized messages, bright cups and trays – they’re all beyond adorable and so spring-y. Just imagine a spring soiree or picnic using these – so much happiness coming from a colorful tableware, don’t you think (I think even the food tastes better)? What’s your pick?
