Happy Friday, friends! We made it and there are just a few hours left until the weekend we’re all waiting for (finally some relaxation time, right?). So to honor this glorious day, I’m loving green – a glorious color that’s timeless, modern and beyond refreshing in an interior! I’m especially drawn to kelly green, but all the other shades are pretty cool too and they look great in any room – kitchen, living room, entryway (proof below):
I know I wrote a post on the dipped trend a couple of weeks back, but now let’s just say the focus isn’t on anything dipped, ok? Instead I want to introduce you to a lovely collection of wooden bowls, spoons, cups etc. All handmade, all adorable! I found on Etsy this shop that had too cute stuff to leave it aside. Plus it shows two of the current mega-trends: neon colors and dipped – in this case it’s a match made in heaven. I’m sure you’ll love it!
Vacation season is approaching and some inspiration in its spirit sounds perfect, right? Greece is a dream destination for all mainly because of its gorgeous beaches and the islands that are worth your visit. Speaking for myself, not the last reason for visiting Greece is the architecture and the stunning colors that just scream sea, breezy air and total relaxation – white and blue.
Today I wish I spent my days outdoors instead of being trapped in the office, surrounded by dear people who gathered around a table in my yard where the centerpiece is a huge vase filled with hydrangeas. I wish I served fresh lemonade and vanilla cupcakes, enjoying this blissful time till the sun goes down and then enjoying again a gorgeous sunset. I wish we all spent our days like that, don’t you?
Happy Monday, friends! I haven’t mentioned anything about my pregnancy lately and I know lots of you wonder how is everything going. Well, let me tell you – all is good for both of us, thank God. I’m now 22 weeks, my bump is the main attraction for everyone and we even know the gender :). It all starts looking very real and to say I’m excited yet terrified of what’s to come would be an understatement. I guess all these feelings are normal and that’s what keeps me confident I’ll get through the tough part – fingers crossed! So since I passed the halfway mark in my pregnancy I find it justified to start baby-shopping: adorable toys and onesies are heart-melting and although I know that splurging on newborn clothes and toys isn’t the smartest move, I can’t help it :)
I mean how can you resist this cuteness? I found this French baby shop, My little square, and couldn’t stop clicking through the items – 1) sweetness to the core and 2) hello – beyond chic stuff, after all it’s a French shop we’re speaking about!

P.S. After seeing my collages, can you guess the gender? :)
Continuing with my trend reporting, here’s another one that is done by everyone and their mother – ombre. Frankly, I got enough of it and am so ready to see it fade, but I guess it won’t happen very soon as with every day the ombre trend is more and more popular (fashion, interior design, cake art etc.). It’s not that I don’t like the ombre look – I do, but I also think that the world is full of creative trendsetters and they can already come up with something new – my humble suggestion to style geniuses out there.
As we said a few posts back, summer is all about entertaining and frozen delicious treats, remember? Well, these very adorable wooden spoons are perfect for completing the image – not only they look beyond cute with the colorful stripes on them, they’re also eco-friendly which makes them even more attractive. Plus they’re pretty affordable – could this get any better?
With neon being everywhere for the past year or so, we can’t escape the trend no matter how hard we try. So we can only do the best of it and use it in chic, bold ways. Like have a neon color palette for decorating a wedding. Sounds insane, right? Not if you set limits and decorate with neon within them. Then you can achieve a fashionable and very cool look that will wow everyone. Here’s a table setting to inspire you if you plan a wedding/shower/birthday party anytime soon:
Happy Monday, friends! I’m back from a creative block (you know, when you’re unable to come up with a decent post?) and I hope inspiration will stick around for a while. Many things happened during my absence, many finds that caught my eye, many ideas I want to blog about, like for example ceramics. I feel like ceramic items are the comfiest yet edgy-modern approach a table setting might get. The natural look with a pop of color is the best way to decorate your summer outdoor table. I’m loving these adorable plates from Elephant ceramics – the color palette is to die for!
