2016 Spring is Pink and Gold

Spring is almost here, and I’ve been waiting for it since October. I just feel to cold and I’m not a winter lover. I scanned the web for some color prophecy and I like what I see; Pinks (Coral pink, Flamingo pink), and Golds (and Mustard, and Yellow). So… What are we waiting for?

Color Therapy: Reasons why I love yellow

Yellow is my favorite color. Not pink, just a happy, simple yellow. Yellow is bold, and sometimes,  it punches up a room just by using a single item. It’s a color pop up – it’s happy, it’s modern, and it simply makes my heart feel better. I gathered these photos for showing you why yellow is my color.

This Vintage renovated kitchen is amazing!

6 Times Wallpaper in the Bathroom totally nailed it

A bathroom is the place we can relax in, being with ourselves and dig inspiration. It is also the place we can really be fearless with the design. A wallpaper in the bathroom may seem like a bad idea, but these 6 bathrooms might prove the opposite. What do you think?

Mell’s Kitsch colorful house in Australia

Do you know these Instagram accounts, you can’t get enough of? Mell’s house is one of them, for sure. A colorful, pink, full with vintage kitsch dolls and other goodies. It’s the kind of houses you look at and can get really curious about the person behind the walls, because really – who could possibly 1. Create it, and 2. Live inside this colorful house each and every day? A unique human being, I guess…

Mell says it all began when she started collecting Kewpie dolls around 10 years ago. Today, she lives in a totally RAD house, full with colors and joy. For me, it looks like an “I don’t give a fuck” kind of house. Or maybe an “I live my life as I wish, in its fullest” kind of house. Either way, I love the totality of it and invite you all to follow her amazing house on Instagram.

If you’re into collecting some of these items, follow Mell’s Instagram store and purchase your own day dream.

Madly in love with Ikea’s Wireless Charging Furniture

Are you familiar with the “in love” emoji? It’s me, having my first glance at Ikea’s Wireless Charging Furniture. The perfect match between design and gadget.

Can you imagine yourself charging your phone just by laying it down? I do! Ikea is selling two wireless charging products – The Riggadwork lamp, and the Nordmark triple charging pad.

Both products have Ikea’s aesthetic Scandinavian modern design. Just lay down your phone on the “+” sign and it will start charging. That simple.

Things to know – Only certain phones that have the Qi wireless charging standard can use the method (others need a bulky case). And while orientation doesn’t matter, the phone has to be centered precisely on the mark. Who cares? Must have!!!

Wish List: Good vibes all around you

Do you believe in the power of words? I do. I think positive words can change my feelings, even if I do not notice that right away. That’s the reason why I never put in my house, or even at my workspace, negative messages.  I understand, that just by looking at it all day, it will be soaked in eventually.

My last month was like a roller coaster – full with new experiences – some were exciting, and others, well, just not the right type. This post comes as a cleansing breeze, and I hope it does the same for you too. I gathered some positive items I found, and I guess I really need to see on a daily basis.

Believe in the power of words. Surround yourself with positive, happy, encouraging words, and the good things will come to you.

When you’re  lost. Get lost, and run wild

5 Happy Houses to see on Instagram

I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I LOVE Instagram. It’s the first app I felt attached to, since I had my first iPhone. I love it. And when it comes to Instagram I don’t have an ego. I don’t care if I have less followers then follows (Although I love to be followed!). I just follow the accounts that have great photos of people, animals, places, and most of all – you guessed right – houses!

In the past years I got to know some fantastic accounts I must check on a daily basis. Each one has its own charm and beauty, and of course, a super creative personality who stands behind the lens and filters.

3 important lessons I’ve learned from my first yard sale

Once a year, I like to get rid of unused things and give away to family and friends. If something hasn’t been used or worn for the entire year, perhaps I don’t really need it.

But some things feel more precious to me, and I don’t think anyone around me will appreciate it as I do. Or, in some cases I just paid too much money for giving it for free. But I don’t like clutter, I only like to keep useful things around me.

For quite a long time, I was thinking about selling my stuff at a yard sale, but I’m an introvert, and sometimes don’t feel so comfortable with the “face to face” interaction, especially when money is involved. But I also think it’s important to get out of my skin and do something completely different for a change. I asked my blogger friend Miaamos if she wants to join me in my battle against clutter, and we made our own yard sale!

She has done it before, but for me, it was the first time ever. I took some photos from her porch, where the sale took place:

My first yard sale

IMG_4316

Together

I won’t try to bullshit you- it was lame. People did come, but we only managed to sell a few inexpensive items.

But nevertheless, the whole experience was fun and we took great photos. We also learned a lesson or two:

1. The location is crucial
Mia’s porch was absolutely perfect for the sale. But the location of her house brought us the wrong kind of audience – more conservative community while our stuff, (I guess) was  too quirky for them.

2.Pick your partners wisely
Mia can be a perfect business partner for me. We have close (but not similar) taste, and we speak our minds clearly to each other. But when we publish the event, another seller contacted us and asked to join us and sell her jewelry there. She said she has regular costumers and it would help us out so we obviously said yes. Her costumers came, but her merchandise was so different from ours, they didn’t even look. They came for her, and it only made us feel a bit invisible.

3.Have fun!
I don’t care if the sale was lame. I did something I’m not used to do, and I’ve learned a lot on the way. We had our fun together, doing things we love and it’s enough. I think we will try this again and who know? Maybe we will do much better next time.

DIY Inspiration: How to make patterned tiles using stencils and spray!

Wow, I really love what this talented artist does. It’s the perfect example of how creativity can make everything out of nothing.

Painted tiles are my favorite kind of flooring, I just love it. If you follow @ihavethisthingwithfloors on Instagram, you probably suffer from the same disease. I know whenever I will decorate my future dream house, It would have decorative tiles (black & white in the shower!).

Javier de Riba, an artist based in Barcelona, creates fascinating works that look like real, beautiful tile floors. Instead of actually tiling, he paints on them with stencils and spray paint.

de Riba, makes his art in abandoned buildings, which makes me so inspired to see the potential hidden in any material, and encourages me to try and dare a little more. You know “Where there’s a will there’s a way”

 

 

 

And some yellow too…
