Ever since I remember myself I loved analyzing stuff whether it’s a situation, story, setting or vignette – it was always fascinating to learn (or at least imagine and guess) why did it happen that way, what was the reason and the result of a certain behavior etc. constantly trying to stay true to myself, striving to be the image of my opinion. So I thought a cool idea would be to bring this hobby (?) of mine to the blog, focusing on rooms that were appealing, discussing here why were they appealing. Let’s proceed :)
Hi all, I have been missing for a very long while and I apologize (again!), but thanks to sweet readers who sent me emails asking if everything’s ok and showing concern, I appreciate it a lot! Yes, everything’s fine, life is busy and I must learn to organize better in order to manage blogging just as I did before. Promise to do my best to stick around this time :)!
Let’s talk business now :). With emerald green being this year’s color I can’t help but get back to all shades of green over and over again and this collection is particularly appealing as each space is simple, but the green accents are the cherry on the cake providing that needed dose of grandeur and elegance. Also, these rooms have the home-y feeling therefore they’re going to my bookmarks asap!
Have a great week!
Gold is such a timeless detail and it fascinates me how big of a change gold accents can add to a room, outfit, table or to anything else. I’m loving golden touches lately and I especially enjoy seeing them in home decor in form of chairs, shelves, candlesticks etc. Of course it’s adorable to see golden macaroons, but still nothing beats a stunning golden chandelier in a relaxing bedroom.A girl can dream :)
Lately I’m feeling so attracted by simple color schemes which obviously lead up to pretty color coordinated rooms. I enjoy seeing how people use one color (or a combo) throughout an entire room as it adds such a delicate touch and the room feels very neat and chic. Depending on which color you’re going with the room can become feminine, cozy or plain modern. Whatever the result is it’s clear that a color coordinated room looks also very organized and all this together is a winning combination :). Here are a few examples:
Perhaps colorful kitchen cabinets aren’t my cup of tea at the moment (remember when I was saying how my aesthetics has a tendency to change over time? well, let’s say I’m more for a sleek and modern design now). Nonetheless, I can’t help but love the colorful kitchen cabinets from this post, they’re bringing so much joy into any space and being that a kitchen is an area where we spend a lot of time in pops of green, blue, yellow or red sound pretty much perfection! There is one ‘but’ – although I like this idea I’m wondering how does one feel when actually having colorful kitchen cabinets, doesn’t it feel too much?
Burgundy was all over fashion this past fall and if you’re following the trends you have at least one piece in burgundy. And it got me thinking how does this color embracing interior design – to my surprise burgundy isn’t very popular in home decor, but I can’t say I don’t understand why, after all this is a bold hue requiring attention when creating color palettes as not every color pairs nicely with burgundy, don’t you think so? Personally I doubt I would paint my bedroom in burgundy as I would probably fear the darkness the room will receive, however accent pieces look pretty good adding a touch of elegance (a result close to what plum gives to a space – royal and sophisticated).
What’s your opinion on burgundy?
I came across this nursery some time ago and I immediately knew it’s going to my bookmarks! It’s no surprise I love to stare at pretty nurseries, but this one felt so very soothing and appealing that I thought to myself how amazing it would be if I get to have such calming space! All white and creamy this room is sure to teach a little one serenity. Oh, and the room has stripes – who doesn’t love them, right?
Hi friends! Happy Sunday, I hope you’re enjoying yet another end of the week. It’s so dreary outside that I can’t help but crave some color (but we all know I always crave it, so no big deal now :)). I came across some rooms where color is used in the most unexpected way – radiators! Who would think a radiator can be the focal point of a room, right? The idea in my opinion is quite amazing and so easy! Ah, if only we (or at least I) would have the guts to do it :)
So in one of my last posts I said I’ll be posting every day and I failed at that, but in my defense I can say that I had a reason – a fussy baby (enough said, right?). Anyway, today I’d like to add my two cents to the topic of Pantone choosing Emerald green as the color of 2013. I already expressed my affection for this color in previous posts having no clue that this color will have such a big impact on the design scene at some point – I guess I have foreseen a trend without even knowing it :). The richness of this shade is mesmerizing, showing a whole new level of green – a dense hue that screams refinement and elegance. I like how modern emerald green feels, definitely not the boring green one might expect :).
