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.
Can I just say Thom Filicia is my new interior design idol? The man is a genius and I’m amazed by his decorating style, aesthetics and the subtle charm of every inch he’s designed. From modern to eclectic to traditionalism Thom Filicia manages to inspire us with down-to-earth designs which feel very livable, not too sophisticated and definitely swoon-worthy. I know if I had to choose who may design my home (a girl can dream), Thom would be on the top of my list!
Hello everyone! Have you heard of Monique Germon? No? That’s alright, I haven’t heard of her either until now, so I knew I must introduce Monique to all of you! The title of this post says everything actually – she’s a designer, stylist, photographer, writer and art director (quite impressive, right?). She lives in Australia and has a background in classical singing, piano & extensive travel. Monique now works as a creative professional on various projects focusing mainly on design, writing & photography and her style is all about charm and whimsy – sounds perfectly attractive as I always thought that a good slice of relaxed humor makes art even more stunning and catchy. Here’s some of Monique’s work, but on her site and blog you’ll find much more, so go ahead, check it out!
Hi everyone! How was your week? I’m really sorry for being so absent the last few days, the thing is that my family is visiting us now, so I need to be with them, show them where do I live and all these things! I’m so thrilled to have them here with us and even more thrilled to have our wedding ceremony on Sunday! But I wanted to stop by today and be with you for a while as I’ve missed you so much! And also I wanted to introduce you to an amazing shop that I stumbled upon long time ago and never had the time to write about (perhaps you’re already familiar with it) – it’s about the shop of the lovely Louise of Table Tonic blog. I feel a deep admiration for Louise (yes, I FEEL and I can’t explain why), because she’s such a great blogger, with a wonderful sense of style (you can convince yourself about this if you check her shop) and a very inspiring and fun blog which I enjoy reading always! So, about Louise’s shop – it’s colorful, modern and as stylish as the owner herself! Please take a look at my picks, but do visit the shop to see all the eye candy there!
Anne Hepfer is a very known and popular designer in Toronto, Canada. Anne lives in a 1933 Georgian home, formerly owned by Prime Minister John Turner. She re-designed the home and now every room has its own, different than the others color and each of them says its own story. Having 2 adorable baby twins, Anne manages to keep the warmth and the inviting atmosphere in there and I say that her home is worth a 10!!! Here are the images:
You’re right, Jennifer Ramos of Made by Girl. She’s an incredible person and her taste of style is breathtaking! To prove you this, I’m now inviting you to visit her home (virtually). I’ve been wanting to do this awhile, but now I just couldn’t resist, after I saw her new home office :). Intrigued? Then check it out and cherish every single detail of it, believe me it’s worthy! As Jen says, her home represents her, so let’s take a look, shall we?

Haha! I guess I’m not so good with inventing quotes. What I wanted to say is that an apartment of 40-45 sq.m can look way bigger than this, the trick is to know how to design and decorate it! Here are some examples:
1. Just 46 sq.m
Well, hi again! The baby fever I’m having (you all know about it) is back again! And the reason is a site which I stumbled upon accidentally and I don’t regret at all! The site is called All Things G&D and there I saw this gorgeous nursery, which belongs to little cutie-pie Kate, G&D’s daughter. I simply love the colors: it’s in purple, fuchsia and orange. This sounds so cool, just imagine how does it look!
… Or the eternal friendship between flora and fauna! Call it however you want, but the fact that this thing is ingenious – for sure! I bet you’re curious what am I talking about? Alright, it’s about a pot, where can fit both your favorite plant/flower and your fish! Ok, it’s little hard to understand what I mean, here it this!
You all probably know who is Julia Child and, of course, you all watched the movie “Julie and Julia”! Can I confess something to you? I adore this movie! It’s extremely inspiring, for me! The first time when I saw it, I was laughing, living (virtually) the life Julie lived and her ambition of becoming a writer! I’m not dreaming about being a writer, but I do have a blog and that’s why I become so sensitive every time I see Julie and Julia! Guess what? Today I took a quick look at the movie again, to get some inspiration :), and I completely fell in love with Julia Child’s kitchen! Now that is a real vintage, cozy kitchen! And notice all those kitchen pans and pots hanging on the wall! It’s just fabulous!
P.S. I love Meryl Streep in every movie of hers, but in “Julie and Julia” she was just gorgeous and she is my favorite! :)
