Yesterday while browsing some pins from around the world I came across a picture that had my attention for a few good minutes. Unfortunately I haven’t saved it, but believe me when I say it was a swoon-worthy living room and what caught my eye were the layered rugs on the floor. I loved it, because those mismatched rugs were such a perfect and unexpected detail to the room, adding some color, a patterned twist to the entire space making it feel warmer and cozier. At the same time I felt that as pretty as the look of patterned rugs might be, it’s also a bold move (at least it would be for me), so I thought I can ask you – do you love or hate the look of layered rugs?
Every once in a while I like to escape (at least with my mind) to an absolutely different environment, daydreaming about spending time on a lavender field, in a beach cottage or rustic romantic home. I guess the idea of a soft sunlight making its way through the light curtains of a living room decorated in a rustic style feels too attractive for this city girl who can’t imagine her days without constantly running around :). I found the perfect inspiration for all of you who feel the same, so let’s just run away for a few minutes to a gorgeous rustic home where serenity and romance is all you’ll see.
Happy weekend, friends! While you read this I’ll be on my three-day-vacation already as the husband and I took Friday off to enjoy some R&R, even if it’s for such a short time :). We’re staying at an ethno-village which is a four-hour drive from Belgrade, but not just an ethno-village – it’s the one built by Emir Kusturica, the popular movie maker :). I’m excited to go offline for such a long time, but who knows – maybe I will pop in from time to time on my Facebook page, be sure to visit :).
I’m wishing you all a wonderful weekend, thank you for stopping by this week – and see you on Monday! xo

It’s so fascinating to see the thin line between fashion and interior design, isn’t it? As much as the two industries seem to be different, at the end of the day they go hand in hand from every perspective. Perhaps less when it comes to texture, but a lot when we’re speaking about color and I love seeing the similarity between fashion and home decor, even more putting them together and look closely at how colors blend, how a piece of art can look so good on a dress etc.
I’m mesmerized by how well the combination of pink and neon yellow works both in home decor and fashion! I mean not that I’m surprised, fashion-wise this is a match made in heaven, but who knew that these two modern and so bright colors will perfectly blend in interior design? This post pretty much proved it to me a while back though – let’s just say it struck me harder today :). I’m in love with unexpected color combos and at this point neon yellow and pink is on top of my favorites. What’s your fave color combo at the moment?
The pumps are gorgeous too, but check how insanely good-looking is that Jonathan Adler serving bowl? Don’t think it can get any better. Or it can – neon yellow bed and a hot pink bedding? Pretty awesome:
I’m sold, now just to convince the husband about how cool would we be if we paint our room in pink and add punches of neon yellow :). I better forget about it.
With my due date just 10 weeks away (it feels so soon!) I have to get serious about baby shopping starting with onesies to blankets to crib. I did purchase some cute stuff already, but the major pieces like the crib, stroller, car seat, bedding – it’s still on hold simply because I feel there is time (or perhaps buying everything will make it so much more real and will terrify me and that’s why I’m avoiding it?). Nonetheless, I do love browsing online for baby stuff and Dwell Studio has some of the prettiest patterns I’ve ever seen! I highlighted some items, but frankly – I would take it all!
Ferm living is a favorite company of mine since pretty much the first day I came across their pretty patterns. Their A/W collection is nothing short of gorgeous and I especially dig the baby section – beyond cute pillows and wallpaper designs are such happy pieces that it made me want to live in that catalogue :). Happy Monday!
Lovelies, it’s Friday – at long last! Although each week seems way too long with hectic days that sometimes feel unbearable, it also feels like the time flies by way too fast making us look back and wonder how is it already August?! It’s surreal to me that in just a little over two months I’ll get to meet my baby – I’m frightened and excited all at once – and just to think that it feels like yesterday we found out we’re pregnant :). I have to try to live more, feel more and enjoy more every single day before the baby comes, after all the drastic change that awaits me is closer and closer in time. I wish you the same (with or without the baby :)) – enjoy the moments of your day like there’s no tomorrow! Eat that cupcake or ice-cream without thinking about the calories, ride a bike to farmer’s market where you’ll pick up an enormous bouquet of peonies, call your friends and family to remind them how much you love them, have a margarita and go to the beach – your weekend is guaranteed to be one of the best!
Hi guys! After posting every day this week about home decor ideas, for a refreshing change I’d like to introduce you to a stunning newly-launched e-mag You and Me, packed with gorgeous wedding shots, beautiful brides, table decor, DIY and much much more! Another work by Radostina and the team making us dream/remember about blissful wedding moments when nothing else matters except the love which can be felt with every skin cell. The dreamy and romantic photography will take your breath away with its soft glow, so for a dose of beauty I highly recommend checking the magazine.
