Making of a perfect boy bed(room)

Making of a perfect boy bed(room)

Since my nephew was two and a half years old, the whole family started to call the second bedroom “Matija’s room”. And he liked it straight away. He called it “my big room” – which is quite funny ’cause it’s literally the smallest room in their home.

Which affected the design process.

We all know how important it is to design small spaces to little details, making it as functional as possible. But to design something functional, yet interesting to a little boy, is extra challenging.

When designing a small space, Tina and I think that “one large, multifunctional piece of furniture” concept often works the best. And this being a bedroom, naturally led me to the idea of a multifunctional bed. Continue reading “Making of a perfect boy bed(room)”

DIY Hanging planter

Here’s what lovely Janey prepared for you:

With spring right around the corner, we’ve been thinking of ways to add some bright and smart home decor pieces to any home. As you may know, not all decor is strictly for our view’s pleasure. Some decor can be quite useful like a set of corner shelves or practical, like a kitchen chalkboard to write down all of your to-do’s. Houseplants, however, prove time and again that they’re not only useful but quite beneficial to our health. With that said, we thought we’d share this easy and versatile DIY hanging planter from Shutterfly. Continue reading “DIY Hanging planter”

About glass (in the interior)

About glass (in the interior)

We all know that glass is one of the most important materials in architecture today and it is no.1 material if you want your home to be bright and full of light. We always try to pick or design a window that has the largest possible glass surface (smallest possible window frame) because we love the feeling of bringing the outside in through that beautiful big window.

But what about glass in the interior, and how much do we know about glass? Where to use it and why or most importantly where not to use it?

Glass transmits, reflects and refracts light. In interiors is usually used as a divider, but it can also be used as a wall covering/backsplash and as a part of a furniture piece – like a tabletop.

Planning an entrance space makeover

Planning an entrance space makeover

My sister always makes fun of me when she enters my home – every time she walks through the front door she acts like she’s putting her coat on a non-existent hanger and the coat ends up on the floor. She’s obviously trying to tell me that I need to do something with my hallway/entrance space.

Isn’t it funny how the entrance space is probably always the last on our to-do list when we’re renovating? We don’t know why is that since this is the first room everybody sees when they come into our home. We always thought it is one of the most important room to design and decorate and still my hallway is still unfinished.

I got to say I’m pretty happy with our bathroom and kitchen makeover and even living room that is (almost) done, it just misses a few art pieces and one beautiful bookcase, but the entrance space is giving me a headache. I just cannot make up my mind. Continue reading “Planning an entrance space makeover”

Christmas table styling – breakfast for two and family dinner

Christmas table styling – breakfast for two and family dinner

You all know from last year how much we love a Christmas table styling. Well, we love a good table styling (period) it doesn’t have to be a festive one, but if we get to make decorations for it, we love it a bit more.

We also know how much you love inspirational posts, and we love them too!

Just a few weeks ago we saw this one from a sweet Croatian blogger Ines (from More less Ines) that, together with all the pictures from Pinterest we’ve pinned for years, inspired our breakfast table styling. If it wasn’t for her post we wouldn’t think of putting our decorations in glass domes for a breakfast table styling.

And remember last year when Nina did a beautiful and simple Christmas dinner mockup for us, and we loved it.

She combined the dark hues with the greenery and dark wood. This year she did almost the same thing, the only difference is she went all the way and created a winter wonderland on the table and it looks completely different from the last year’ one!
