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.

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.

Elise Blaha Cripe is the owner (May I say “Proud owner”? Because she must be…) of enjoying it blog, and I love her house! As she writes about herself on her blog, she just launched GET TO WORK BOOK™, a daily planner + goal-setting journal. She also owns a shop where she sells handmade items, and on her blog, she writes about home decor, Diy projects, and more.
Recently, she uploaded a home tour photos, from her house in San Diego. The one story house was built in 1961, but the bathrooms, kitchen, appliances, windows & carpet are new. Walls were taken down which bought more light To this space.
I look at these Before & After photos, and it reminded me of my old house – The light, the open space, the wide windows and the gray walls, melt my heart. But not only the structure counts here, but the talent of putting things together. If I’d have a dream home, it would probably look like this…
Can you help me out here? Where do I find this & sign?
And in front of the dining table, this lovely cozy corner…
And another angle of the living room area…
And another one…
The nursery room
And her cute and functional office…
Framed photos in the bathroom? You must be joking! But I actually like the idea…
And the porch
