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”
Remember when we wrote a post about what kids can teach us about interior design? Well, one of the things was Kids need to have their space in the apartment, just like grown-ups do.
We all invest in great furniture pieces for ourselves, but we often buy a pour quality furniture for our kids because we have this thought in the back of our mind that they’ll soon grow out of it. So why invest in something they’ll use just for a short period of time?
But our kids need to learn early on about good quality design and learn to take care of valuable things. And if those pieces will improve their learning and growth, even better!
Kids simply amaze us, they always surprise us, the way they see things around them, how their imagination works are astonishing.
And also how playful they are, they just can’t calm down!
Remember how hard it was to sit still in a school chair? Raise your hand if your teacher told you a billion times to stop rocking in your chair. Well, up until now no one really thought about why kids do that? Why they can’t simply sit still? And furniture for kids was always just a smaller version of a grownup furniture.
