31 Bits jewelry

Happy Monday to all! Today we’ll kick off the week with a slightly different approach meaning this day isn’t about chic interiors, but bits of fashionable jewelry – 31 Bits to be more precise. 31 Bits is a brand selling handmade jewelry that comes all the way from Uganda! The idea came up to Kallie Dovel in 2007, coming to a life in 2008 and blooming ever since. The team behind 31 Bits works on a regular basis with a group of women from Uganda who create necklaces, bracelets and more from recycled paper and it all looks fabulous! What impressed me a lot is that 31 Bits offers several educational programs to those women - English lessons, finance training, health education etc. – worth being admired, don’t you think?

Living through colors

With these shiny, warm days all I have on my mind are colors, colors, colors! It was never a secret I’m totally obsessed with them, but there’s something special happening to me when it’s spring outside – then yellow, blue, red or green gets so much more weight and it’s like life wouldn’t exist without them, you know what I mean? So when I need a dose of bright hues, I head over Design Seeds and of course you know this brilliant site full of inspiration. Here are my highlights for today.

Spring greens and blues

With the spring being here, I can’t help but be inspired by its freshness and brightness. Spring’s green color is my absolute favorite shade and the blue – well, it always feels airy and clean, so this combo is a perfect addition to anything especially after a dreary winter. That’s why I was so smitten by this table setting and the room itself – I could feel the smell of spring through the pictures!

Living in serenity

Hello, lovelies! Just as I said, I’m back with a dose of apology for not posting such a long time – it was a break I needed. I hope you’re enjoying this gorgeous spring weather (have  I mentioned spring is my favorite time of the year?). Anyway, I’m feeling rested right now, very peaceful inside and out, which is a blissful feeling (trying to keep it for as long as I can!), that’s why today’s post is a home tour to show off exactly the serenity I’m filled with.
