I know you’ve all heard about Gatherings, the new (to me, at least) online magazine that is so adorable and laid back. I mean, not that the only thing to see are pretty pictures, not at all – the magazine is filled with recipes, advice on decorating, inspiring interviews and much more, but it’s all put together in a heart-warming way, making you want to escape to a stress-free world, where all the homes look like lovely collections of patterns, fresh flowers and vintage! Speaking of homes, here’s one I definitely see myself in (at least these days).
Ever wondered why is white both calming, warm-ish and sterile at the same time? I know it’s an unimaginable combo, but I often feel exactly this when I see how this color is used in interiors. Sometimes it can be very soothing while other times so minimalist and look-but-don’t-touch. The home tour below features a white (beige-y) which is very warm, serene and simple perfection for a home. Take a look:
This home makes me happy! You know the feeling when you come across a home that is feast for your eyes and just the thought of living in puts on a big smile on your face? Well, I have this feeling quite often and just when I thought it can’t get better – I stumble upon Adore home magazine‘s new issue! And in there is this home called “Caribbean dream” which is just as colourful as you might imagine, with patterns galore – a true tropical fiesta! Here’s a glimpse at it:
And here I am again asking myself what do Swedish and Danish people have that we all don’t? Is it something about the air or we’re simply meant to be different? You’re probably wondering why am I asking this, right? Well, have you seen better homes than those in Sweden and Denmark? Whether we’re speaking about interior designers or just people who like to decorate, they’re equally talented and the outcome (i.e. homes) is just stunning! I’ve been featuring lots of Scandinavian home tours here on the blog, so here is one more, a summer house to die for!
I’ve been a fan of Tobi Fairley since forever and I truly believe she’s a genius! Her design aesthetics is incredibly chic and modern, all the rooms Tobi created are to die for – Tobi rocks it big time. Also, I believe she’s the kindest and most adorable person ever, really! Imagine my feelings when I saw her home! Oh my, you guys – it’s amazingly gorgeous and inviting! Here, I’m sharing it with you! Bravo for Tobi!
Cristina Re is a Melbourne-based graphic designer (aka “stationery guru” just like Adore Home magazine said) living in a delightful, colourful home that she designed all by herself. Cristina’s place has a Spanish flair, with an European feeling to it, many patterns, but most of all the feeling of a home, a very inspiring one if I say so myself! When I saw her home, one word came to mind (one of the few words in Spanish I know) and that is caliente (hot)! A home with bits of passion? Sign me up for it!
Ok, I know I wished you all a happy weekend and I’m supposed to give you a break these two days, but I just came across a home that is TOO awesome not to be posted. I nearly fell off my chair, seriously – it’s ah.mazing! I love every inch of it, every colour and every single detail of the interior. Take a look:
Can you believe that the weather these days is just awful? Raining, windy, dull and gray – hello, it’s May outside! Frankly, I refuse to believe that a May day can exist without warm sun and gentle breeze, that’s why I’m feeling like Spring is yet to come. And to hurry things up I’m treating myself and all of you with a gorgeous home tour located in Denmark were colours rock big time. Such hues as turquoise, bright red and hot pink prevail throughout the home and that, my friends, is the perfect pill for depressive days like we have at the moment :). I really hope you have more luck with the weather and you can actually feel it’s Spring. Send some sun my way, please!
Happy Friday, dears! I’m finally at home, after what it seemed to me a very long week in the hospital, so I’m thrilled I got out from there :). There’s no place better than home, right? Speaking of home, sweet home – I just found my dream place! I mean seriously, it’s a stunning piece jam-packed with amazing details both modern and mid-century ones, with a sleek feeling to it, but the most important with a view you’ll DIE for: Mediterranean sea! What can be better than waking up in the morning to the sound of calming waves and to the smell of fresh air? I believe a better option simply doesn’t exist.
Fiona Douglas is a textile designer and the owner of Bluebellgray company based in Glasgow, Scotland and her home full of florals and bold colors got me swooning big time! One day I’d love to have a room in my home with walls painted in delicious navy color, with a neutral color palette where I can throw in colorful cushions and bright artwork – these two would make for some statement pieces in a room without much effort, right? Fiona‘s home goes straight to my inspirational folder.
