Being that my design style, aesthetics is an ever-changing thing I never thought I’d say that, but I found my dream bedroom. It has the color of a pale pink rose, a gorgeous comfy bed, a cozy cowhide rug, the most feminine settee I’ve ever seen, a Vogue poster and of course it has fresh flowers in pretty vases. How could a girl not like all this? Not sure my husband would be as excited as I am, but still – I’d love to have Crystal’s bedroom (that girl is a huge talent when it comes to decorating, don’t you think? Her home as seen in the anniversary issue of Rue looks amazing!):
Rue magazine turned one, congratulations to the amazing team! The magazine has been a treasure and inspiration from the very first issue and I believe I’ll keep being astonished by it till the end (hope there won’t be one). Here are a few favourite images from their anniversary issue (Crystal’s home is simply gorgeous). Congrats, girls!
I know this editorial shot for the latest issue of Rue won’t be a new thing for you, but it’s just too good to be skipped. I loved it, seriously – it’s the highlight of the entire issue, at least for me. The dreamy setting, the soft and natural color palette, the camel and the sophisticated glamour knocked me off. I couldn’t resist posting it here, I think it’s the perfect weekend inspiration! Have a good one, loves!
For today’s post I chose something breezy and relaxing – it’s Friday and it’s the perfect moment to set the mood for the weekend (which is just few hours away, yay!). It’s already July (really, where did June go?!), but I have to admit that I hadn’t tried yet that summer bliss in the form of late afternoons, patio drinks, picnics by the lake and lazy days on the beach – I feel terribly exhausted at the moment and all this sounds way more than just perfect. Have you gotten some of this summer-y deliciousness? Have you had a vacation yet? If so, where did you go, I want to know everything about it! :)
Happy weekend, loves!

Happy Tuesday, sweets! I apologize for being absent yesterday, things were crazy busy and it looked like the day flew by without me noticing it! Today, since outside is so cloudy and gray, I prepared a perfect post and I mean a post to cheer you up! We all love stripes (proven many times!) and yellow, so here’s an idea of how to cheer up your kitchen or any other room using the two details: with a striped rug and some pretty daffodils you’re sure to transform a room into a sunny place!

Would be an understatement if I say that I adore the 4th issue of Rue magazine, it’s brilliant! Go check it yourself if you don’t believe me. While perusing the latest issue yesterday, among billions of posts and images I loved, there was an editorial that I just couldn’t stop looking at – it’s the one from the desert. Let me say that I wowed when I saw the cover (picture from this editorial), it was a piece I’ve never seen in any other online magazine nor printed one and as I heard in twitter land there are many tweeps saying it was a risk to have a cover like that – a ‘risk worth taking’, that is.
Rue Magazine issue three went live yesterday and I cannot begin to describe how fabulous it is! Seriously, it was almost surreal to see SO much inspiration in one place, at one time. I perused the issue a few times last night and was nearly not breathing with every single turned page. I adore it, the issue is pure fabulousness and I highly recommend it, you’ll find there everything your heart might desire: fashion, interiors and home tours, shops, mood boards and many behind the scenes pictures and videos! And of course there was one home tour I just couldn’t ignore and that is the home of my fellow blogger Nicole Cohen, author of Sketch42 blog! Her home is to die for! Combining classic, eclectic and modern styles, Nicole’s nest is dreamy! Enough talking, here’s a glimpse at Nicole‘s home (find more in Rue):
You know who is Crystal, right? Blogger behind Plush Palate, founder and editor-in-chief of Rue magazine! Her home was featured in the 1st issue of Rue (blogged here), but I couldn’t help myself and just had to post about it on creamylife, because Crystal is close to be my idol and the image of a modern perfection! She’s young, ambitious, knowing what she wants to do and be, her sense of aesthetics is able to amaze others (like me) and what I see in Crystal is a person who I want to be when I grow up, whom I want to learn from about style, art and everything that makes this life beautiful. Crystal’s home is no surprise a serene place, in pastel colors meant to bring joy and the perfect, calming atmosphere for a warm home. Not to mention how stylish that place is! It oozes European charm and I tell you it’s blissful! Here are some pictures, the entire tour can be seen in Rue.
You know that I’m more of a color girl, loving everything bright and light, right? However, I have my days when I’m lusting over earthy, natural colored interiors, which emanate warmth and a muted charm. Today is one of those days, so the portfolio of ultra-popular designer Vicente Wolf was a perfect find! I’m sure you know everything about VW, plenty of blog posts dedicated to his work in our blogland, but I needed to add my two cents as he’s truly amazing, his portfolio is delightful, eye candy for us all! The interiors I chose for this post have a rustic feeling to them and they’re making me dream about cozy blankets, books and cups of tea! By the way, in Rue magazine you’ll find an article about an average day of Vicente Wolf, so check it out, it’s very captivating to see what is he up to in his day-to-day life.
I bet you already know about Rue Magazine, you were anxiously expecting its launch, counting down the days until today, right? Well, you were not alone in this and just as you, I couldn’t wait for Rue to go live! And it did! Yep, Rue Magazine is out in all its glory! And let me tell you that is truly GRAND! With nearly 300 pages, it has plenty of inspiration for us to indulge ourselves, gorgeous home tours and utterly amazing interior designers, stylists, bloggers and overall wonderful people! The Rue team, Crystal, Anne, Alaina and Caitlin (along some seriously amazing contributors!), did a fantastic job and I’m so proud for being a part of this community and to know them through blog land!
