Urban Jungle Bloggers | My Plant Shelfie

My plant shelfie | My Paradissi #urbanjunglebloggers

Here's a post I've been meaning to write quite some time now. Actually, since I first found out about the Urban Jungle Bloggers I wanted to be part of the team. Have you heard them? Igor of Happy Interior Blog and Judith of Joelix have created an online platform for bloggers to share their love on plants and all sorts of interior greenery.

My cup of tea precisely! As I've mentioned before, living in a ground floor apartment in the center of the city and with no outdoor space, has left me craving for nature more than I could have ever imagined. I try my best to keep my window sills flooded with plants but that won't be anywhere close to satisfy my thirst for those invigorating green creatures.

Now, with my living room redo, I created a specific spot to bring together some more of my lovelies with the help of two white IKEA lack shelves. And, since its only a couple of weeks that I completed the project feels like I'm quite on time for an Urban Jungle Bloggers shelfie. Love how this wall now feels fresh and vibrant. The plants I've picked seek for very little care and attention but create a big impact on the white background. I also have this snake plant I kept in a vase (with just water) for more than 3 years (!). I don't know how it manages to survive for so long without any soil but I'm so glad it does ;). In the photo below, I've placed it inside a leather bag as I've recently (read: this morning) managed to break the vase. As it seems, I'm quite satisfied with its new container I'm thinking of just leaving it this way.

DIY: Gallery wall alternatives

DIY: Gallery wall alternatives | My Paradissi

A few days ago we talked about all those not-your-typical-framed-art items you can hang on a gallery wall collection to make it even more impressive and unique. Today, I'd like to share with you a few diys I came across the web that can all be used for that matter. Most of them are quite simple (the plush deer head not so much- but  ain't it a real cutie?) so maybe you can try them over the weekend. Happy crafting , friends :)

Rustic kitchen shelving inspiration

Rustic kitchen shelving inspiration | My Paradissi

I'm always fascinated by rustic country kitchens. That's, quite possibly, because I've subconsciously connected fresh and pure food with the countryside. Maybe, on the other hand, it is because sleek white porcelain, shiny copper and crystal clear glass look too good on contrasting unrefined and vintage cabinetry and shelving for my visual thirsty self to ignore. For that matter, here is today's inspiration; open kitchen shelves and glass door cabinets with wonderful kitchenware displays to lust for. Enjoy :)
