It’s a new month again and as a tradition I start it here with a flashback to the previous month in my Instagram feed. This time, instead of posting a collage, I share some of the photos from July in full size. Those of you who follow me on Instagram have probably seen these already, but I hope you don’t mind seeing the selection again – after all they look much bigger here too :)
This week is an Easter week and that else would suit better to start it as a beautiful Scandinavian style Easter inspiration from IKEA. Branches with little green buds are decorated with eggs, feathers, photos and paper wheels, all in neutral colour palette, simple and beautiful.
Reminder: depends where you live, but for those living in areas with colder climate these are the last days to bring some branches indoors to give them plenty of time to grow little green buds or leaves for Easter weekend :)
It seems that you can find Le Sac en Papier paper bag in almost every Scandinavian style home office. No wonder, it’s both beautiful and has also practical value. If you don’t have it yet, you have a chance to win it (together with 2 gorgeous Mathilda Clahr leather strap hangers!) via my birthday giveaway here on the blog and also in Instagram! While there are many shops selling it in Europe, the good news to everybody living in other side of the world is that my lovely sponsor Norsu will be the first Australian retailer to sell the popular Le Sac en Papier paper bags!
This bedroom styled by Studio Oink took me from the very first sight – I love the all white color scheme, I love the herringbone floor, I love the rich textures and I love the soft and cozy feeling it has! Gorgeous!
So now it’s officially summer and what else suits best to welcome summer than some outdoor living inspiration! And this time it’s my balcony! :)
It’s really narrow (exactly 1 meter), which makes decorating a little bit harder and narrows down the possibilities. There’s a little table with some chairs and a DIY shelving unit for plants: upper shelf for those happy to bath in the sun and lower one for these preferring not to be exposed to direct sun. Since our balcony is facing south it gets a lot of sunlight – good thing in spring and autumn and on colder summer days, but not so comfortable with hot summer weather (fortunately we spend these days usually in country side).
I hope you like it! :)I have thought about showing you my own home for some time now (I have shown a little bit of it here and here), but always feel that it’s not quite ready yet (I know, a home won’t never be ready, at least for decor freaks like us…) and I’d like to do this and that before sharing. I try to get over that feeling (which is hard for a perfectionist, but I’ll do my best!) and I hope that you can see some more photos of my home in the near future :)
It took me too long to join Instagram (I feel like I missed the train…), but I have been there for some months now and I can say that it’s really addictive! I have found so many inspiration from there and I like to get feedback to my own photos. These above are some of my favorite shots from my Instagram feed.
I found this stylish and beautiful outdoor dining room during these few minutes I spent online this weekend. Since it’s warm and sunny outside and forecast warned about rain and much colder temperatures starting from tomorrow I’m heading to the garden to enjoy it as long as it lasts! :)
Storing coffee table books and magazines in a nice plexiglass box is a brilliant idea I found today from Pella’s blog! I have small coffee table and it tends to be crowded with magazines, so that it’s hard to find a free spot where to put my coffee… This kind of box is a really good way to protect mags and books from coffee spills and to add some extra space on your coffee table as you can use it’s top as a free surface!
I try to credit the source of the photos I use, but if you notice I have made a mistake or you are not happy with me using your photo feel free to let me know.
