The Swedish brand Mimou has a pretty fabulous slogan, don’t you think? Creativity rules is for daring people, for talented minds and innovative ideas – which is exactly the description of this brand. They have cushions, wallpapers, furniture, linens all being very fresh and appealing to our modern world. Take a look at a few highlights of mine:
I was introduced today to an online magazine that is pure delight! It’s called Est Magazine and it has SO many gorgeous articles, you’ll be truly overwhelmed with prettiness. They had an article about an Eames chair, the challenge was to recognize a real Eames and a replica (quite difficult task). The article just made me love the chair even more than I did before, so in its honor I put together a post about it and how well it might work in rooms that have different styles, color palettes etc.
Who doesn’t need storage space in their life? I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many drawers and closets. Even better if they’re some vintage deliciousness a-la-post-office-storage, right? Somehow they are SO charming and look so pretty in a room, I’d say it’s an unexpectedly modern item, totally vintage inspired though. Complicated, but well, you get the point.
What can be teal AND cozy? Of course a sofa! I came across a home tour with its overall color palette right up my alley (um, hello Scandinavian gorgeousness!), yet I’ve been having my eyes on a particular detail – the sofa in the living room. It’s to die for! It’s teal with hints of emerald green, it’s a leather chicness and it looks very comfy, so well, what’s not to love? (continue reading)
Before I had crush on chairs. Not that I stopped, but now I’m seeing things wider, bigger – that’s why I have a crush on a sofa, but not JUST a sofa, it’s a Chesterfield sofa, so elegant and glam all at once! And while I’ve never been a big fan of leather couches, I’ll totally take a velvet Chesterfield, which feels royally stunning! I’ve gathered a few inspirational images and while you scroll and scroll to see them, think about how do you feel when seeing this couch – you know that your opinion has always meant a lot to me!
Welcome to a new week, friends! Hope your weekend was relaxing and now you’re ready to face a Monday, Serbian Monday here on creamylife. As it became a tradition, with another Monday we get to meet another Serbian creative and talented mind and this time is about somebody very special, my dear friend Marija! Marija Djordjevic is an interior designer and furniture creator, who studied and lived in Canada and now she is in Belgrade, trying to manage the multitude of design projects she has and her love for creating furniture (her crazy busy schedule makes it quite complicated, but she’s doing great, if I say so myself). I need to mention that the furniture created by Marija can be found at Supermarket Concept store (dreamy place! I’ll write another post about it soon), so if you’re local, go and take a look! Also you can visit her Facebook page for updates.
I always like to come across local brands, names, shops and so on, but being in Belgrade for one year makes it a little complicated as a lot of places and people are still unknown for me (believe me, I’m working on this). So you’ll easily guess how excited I was to be introduced to Kare – a shop in Belgrade (which is a branch of a worldwide chain of shops with the same name) selling furniture and accessories to die for! Seriously, Kare is the type of place where I’d love to live (or at least to leave all my money there!). Not only they have my favorite chairs such as Butterfly, Egg and Louise chairs, the variety of colorful lamps, frames, mirrors, dressers and chandeliers is so worth your look! Kare is pure heaven, so if you’re from Serbia and you need a shop which will help you a lot with decorating, then Kare is the perfect place! But if you’re not from Serbia, at least enjoy some sneak peeks of Kare’s inside space:
