After a short trip to my parents and leaving my little daughter with them :(missing her badly already..) we are home just for one day and leaving to NY tomorrow morning. I haven't packed yet....panic... We coming back next week but I'm only stopping in London for about 8 hours and then leaving to my parents again. I'm not big fan of flying and 6 flights in two weeks is more then enough for me. Not sure how much I'm going to be posting next couple of weeks so if you stopping by and looking for some inspiration :

Sweet fine day - Brooklyn based designer recording her family life...beautiful pictures, and how gorgeous are her girls? I love the blog...
Hei Astrid - Norwegian cool lady...check out her flickr and house as well! :)
and almost forgot ...thank you Little Riley for writing about sarah & bendrix..:)

and have a great weekend everyone...........................................................

In this Belgium apartment the owner had this sliding screen made to uncover either bookcase or TV. Genius....What about you ? Do you mind TV's on display? and how big is your one :) ? ........

This site is an eye candy for anyone who likes interiors. Most of the houses or apartments have been featured in magazines, a lot of them in LivingEtc. I especially like the house in Albert Street and Elmbourne Rd........click here for more

autumn decoration


21 October 2009

When we were little kids we used to do this little autumn decoration with my mum. Today I went to the park with A. and I remembered...I used to love it. We would go out with my sister and come back with full bags of leaves and then spent the whole afternoon arranging them around the house. Although A. is only 16 mth. she was helping with the leaves and thoroughly enjoyed herself. It is incredibly simple, doesn't cost anything and very effective. And your kids might enjoy it as well:)
1. that is all you need...leaves, needle, some cotton thread or I used elastic wire, the leaves are very light so it doesn't really matter..
2. that is what you do... and then just give it a good shake outside ( this is for those who are worried of insects etc:) and attach it to some existing fittings ( poles, light fittings, blind fitting etc.)
3.4. voila !

thank you...


thank you Jen from MadeByGirl for posting about my home and shop and all the lovely people who left nice comments :) read more click here.

get the scissors out !


I have seen some images of paper cutting before but photos I came across this time through Chronicle books blog are amazing. If you want to see more...elsa mora's blog or Papercraft. I have to say some of the sculptures are truly magic.

white, white, white, the light and in this case dark wood...it doesn't need to much to say...perhaps I should stick to the white walls:)

I am the song that sings the bird.
I am the leaf that grows the land.
I am the tide that moves the moon.
I am the stream that halts the sand.
I am the cloud that drives the storm.
I am the earth that lights the sun.
I am the fire that strikes the stone.
I am the clay that shapes the hand.
I am the word that speaks the man.
(Charles Causley)

15 October 2009

So far we had this wonderful autumn here in England. A lot of sun, beautiful colors, and hardly any rain. I remember when I first came to UK it was always raining. Now I think I hardly get my umbrella out. I love autumn colors. Especially when you can enjoy it like this..

my mood/ inspiration board....navy, plum, deep red, couple ideas for next projects...

simplicity...but where do you put all your things ?


13 October 2009

This Elle Decoration here in UK is all dedicated to simplicity. Here are few collages I made from my favorite images. I love it. White walls, splashes of color, clean lines, few pieces of furniture...but where do people put all their stuff? books, photos, clothes, memories...I call myself minimalist, I hate clutter, I make regular trips to charity shops, I basically declutter for the whole family. But I still find it very difficult to have everything organized in 3 bedroom house with one toddler and "part time" teenagers. I think it's just size of the house, it must be the size of the house!.....perhaps one day we can have 6 bedrooms, living room, playroom, study, tv room, utility room, second living room, library, dressing room......what else? what about you? how do you cope with your space?

A. got her first wellington boots. Very funny. She has been walking in them in the house just to get used to them. She found it hilarious:)

Here in England has been raining all day and I feel very lazy. Sometimes I just like to spend hours and hours by my laptop looking at other people houses and today is one of them. Have a lovely weekend:) I would love to have an open fire..have you got one ?

white or black ? or shall I say dark grey or chocolate ?


8 October 2009

Do you remember the house I featured a while ago, the one I wanted to move in to ? so this is the owner and interior designer Abigail Ahern. I absolutely love her style. I have never had the courage for dark walls. I'm pretty much every wall white girl, but I'm so tempted to get at least one black wall....what do you think? white or black ?
