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”
Interior design and home decor does not always feel like the easiest field to dig into. However, it will always be of importance for as long as humankind moves around and keeps it the interest of beautiful surroundings. Research studies during the past decades have shown that general content and happiness can be correlated to how beautiful one person’s surrounding are perceived.

Therefore, we have written a small guide for you to go through and hopefully fins some guiding and useful advice whenever you find yourself browsing through online furniture shops.

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!

While it might seem like the basic idea behind the home interior design is how to make your home look good, it is actually how to make yourself feel good in your home.
How easily overlooked that subtle difference is crossed my mind a while ago when I got the collaboration opportunity from House Babylon, an ethically-sourced luxury linen and bedding company from London.
You see, we wrote about bedroom design and we always say that bed linen has a huge impact on bedroom styling. But it also has a crucial role in how you feel in your bed. And in the end, isn’t that the most important thing?

While looking forward to Christmas dinners and parties, we started to think about gifts for hosts.
It’s a special gift category, isn’t it? Mostly because sometimes you don’t even know that well the person whose party you’re attending. It could be your friends’ sister. Or your boyfriends’ aunt you’re meeting for the first time. How on Earth could you know what she might like?
You can’t. That’s why we suggest practical, simple, stylish and a little over the board gifts no one could resist. Continue reading “Christmas gifts for hosts”
