AROUND CRETE: Lentas | Dytiko

AROUND CRETE: Lentas - Dytiko | My Paradissi © Eleni Psyllaki

Can't believe it's been a week since I last enjoyed this view from our vacation home in Lentas. Actually, with all the things going on around here lately, it sort of feels like ages ago that I swam into these crystal clear turquoise waters.

● Industrial meets modern greek design in this amazing bistro bar in Symi island.

● The evolution of the desktop in a series of smart gifs.
● Haha, nice moto to wake up to!
● Now, this is an ice cream topping I would never (ever) think of.
● Love calligraphy? Then you should definitely have a look at Seb Lester's instagram.

DIY: Iron mesh moodboard

I've seen these mesh moodboard beauties around for a while, so I thought I'd put them all together in one post for future reference. Although, it is not a typical diy post, as none of the photo links actually lands to a tutorial, the concept is quite simple for anyone to follow. Just grab a wire mesh from your local hardware store the size you want, paint it black (or any other color whatsoever) or leave as is and hang it on your wall. Most examples, as you can see, are from home offices but I really dig the idea of using such a board in the kitchen, as shown at this amazing kitchen redo via A Beautiful Mess. See more ideas and examples after the jump. No one can really say no to an easy, budget friendly diy, right?
