What about adding a splash of attractive color mix, go bold with abstract paints and add an extra matching accessory within a room to get the extra deco touch, such as pillows or a set of vases.
I especially love this piece from Michelle Armas called ‘That bowtie I like’.

There is a lot of online galleries, I got these ones from http://www.art.fr:
Every year I visit the International Furniture Fair in Milan and try to remember all the beautiful new collections and check out what’s new at my favorite brands and they didn’t disappoint. However, about them a bit later, this post is about my new discoveries 😛
Here is my TOP 3 list:
3. Essential Home
Essential Home is a brand new brand, I liked very much their modern take on Mid-century look with geometric plays and high quality upholstery, to which I am strongly attracted to :-O.
The pieces are very original, with timeless brass finish and funky design. The quality goes without saying.
2. DOCA Kitchens
I knew Doca from before, but this year I checked out all the new materials and was impressed by the main kitchen, so nice (and taaaall 🙂 I have to say this photo doesn’t do it justice.
I updated their catalogs in my database, studied them and can honestly recommend for:
- beautiful new worktop materials
- fantastic durable finishes,
- all styles of kitchens & wardrobes
- surprisingly price accessible
- the winner – EPOCA HOME
Frankly, I found their stand spectacular and much different from what I remember from previous years. This new collection is timeless, though classic might not be your style (if you are the ‘white box’ person), but it has both classic and contemporary pieces suitable for any place.
If you are interested in any, let me know 😉
With this crazy weather I never know if spring is finally here to stay or not. Anyways, today is a beautiful 22 degrees and sunny and I feel strongly springly inspired 🙂
I found these salmon-pinkish items (2 pillows from Zarahome, tray Aerin) that goes well with warm beiges (with pink undertones) and the sky or baby blue of course. The side table is also Zarahome, oatmeal linen sofa and accent arm chair is One Kings Lane, paint is Laura Ashley Pale Topaz.
Pale Delphinium paint is the 2nd best and bolder choice, I can see it on the wall with a cherry tree branches in front. photo source: vintagepiken.blogspot.fr/2014/02/53.html
White is back!
It’s again the new trendy neutral, but this time forget painting all with off-white. We have at hand so many options of shades and if you mix and match, you can have a wonderful place that is not boring at all. Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams and many more paint manufacturers promote the their whites with convincing arguments.
Mixing the shades of white will create an airy and soothing atmosphere, visually will enlarge the space and will never clash with most of the objects within the room. If you choose the right shade, you can even make the room look more sunny or create a perfect background for other colors to pop out. Whatever your style preference, if you do give it a try, first consider to make few different samples on the walls/furniture pieces at home, as the hidden undertones can make a big difference. I swear you will be surprised 🙂
Secondly, don’t forget to mix the mix different material textures within a room such as matt cotton, shiny leather, matt velvet and faux fur to add visual interest.
Surrender to the complexity of white.
In this abstract artist’s townhouse, the interplay of whites and light creates nuance and subtle beauty.

Dine with cloth napkins, fine china, and silver at every meal—even breakfast! What’s the point of owning beautiful things if you don’t use them?

Its almost end of the summer 😦 and as you certainly noticed the autumn collections are sneaking in. So I was checking what’s new and these pieces caught my attention.
Pillows WhiterbeeAnthropologie (58 GBP), Industrial Mirror Shelves Anthropologie(98 + 148 GBP), Arm chair Made (499 GBP), porcelain bowls H&M (4,99 EUR),Terrarium Urban outfitters (35 EUR), rug Christian Lacroix, Linen bedsheets ZaraHome
This summer I spent few days in Greece, saw my dear friends, ate a great food, visited beautiful beaches … a wonderful trip!
This lazy sun bed shot of mine makes me think of a bit retro orange – blue hues combination, what could work well for a laid back summer home or as a seasonal update of a color scheme for adding fresh deco accents.
A good deco recipe for a holiday mood is one breakfast set in summer colors, set of bright pillows, one or more contrasting blankets and a bunch of decorative elements to season depending on a personal taste.
