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)”

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”

Preparing for a bedroom makeover with House Babylon bed linen

Preparing for a bedroom makeover with House Babylon bed linen

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?

5 reasons for Ikea shelving systems

Bearing that in mind, here’s why we’re sure shelving systems could help: Continue reading “5 reasons for Ikea shelving systems”

New apartment: kitchen reveal

New apartment: kitchen reveal

With our kitchen finally being finished, I found myself in this space which feels like something different than what I’d usually do.

Let me elaborate.

First of all, maybe it’s because I don’t currently work as an architect, but my ten-year-long love for all-white interiors with a hint of raw concrete might have faded away.

Could it be? It used to be so strong…  Continue reading “New apartment: kitchen reveal”

Welcome to an inspiring kitchen and dining space of our favourite gastro blogger

Welcome to an inspiring kitchen and dining space of our favourite gastro blogger

Every so often we feature a room or an apartment designed by architects and interior designers. As much as we love to study concepts behind those designs and details in them, we miss seeing how those spaces look after the owners have lived there for some time. How do they look like on an average day, with decorations, and smaller pieces of furniture added after the owners moved in.

So we decided to make a new category. Real-life interiors – where we’re going to feature interiors we admire that aren’t necessarily created by professionals, but that look just as amazing. Interiors where we can see how the owners live and why they chose that (life)style.

Interiors that might teach us about interior design as well as life at home in general.

Our first guest in this category is amazing and talented Edita from blog Kuživancija. Continue reading “Welcome to an inspiring kitchen and dining space of our favourite gastro blogger”

4 designer details to make your shower stand out

4 designer details to make your shower stand out

Remember way back when we wrote about tiles? To tell you the truth, it is still our no. 1 post – the one which brought most of you to our blog.

And it’s not because we said something groundbreaking about them, but because we showed how beautiful and versatile they can be.

Among others, we showed wonderful tiles from Mercury Mosaics.

And now Mercedes from Mercury Mosaics asked us to write a guest post for our blog. The thing is, we would have asked her to be our guest writer because we truly admire their work, but we would never think she’d be willing to do it. Isn’t it funny?

So today, we are happy to share with you this post we loved so much. Because you’ll love it, too.

Shower walls have become a canvas for some of the most stunning splashes of pattern & color gracing the bathroom. Besides the kitchen space, bathrooms are one of the most used spaces in a residence.
