Bringing some countryside calmness at home

Bringing some countryside calmness at home by My Paradissi © Eleni Psyllaki

No matter how much I love the contemporary life in the city, I need to smoothen down its quick and noisy vibe with the serenity and calmness of the countryside. So when I was contacted by Inkifi to have my favorite Instagram shot framed I didn't think twice. I knew I had to bring some of the tranquil vibes of my village into my apartment. This minimalistic country staircase bathed in sunlight and vines shadows is literally a fond part of my childhood. Those lazy summer afternoons, sitting there with friends while grown-ups were napping, plotting our next adventure, growing up at our own pace. Oh, how much do I miss this feeling right now. I know it's still very early but, boy, isn't it hard to find balance between work, a toddler and a newborn (and a husband, and a house, and and and..). Any tips working mothers? 
For those of you asking, the handmade mug is from Tagliaferro Ceramics (I had posted about it in a previous Etsy Mix post) and holds my morning milk for every single breakfast I had since the day I received it.

Eclectic modern rustic interiors by Pierre Yovanovitch

Eclectic modern rustic bedroom by Pierre Yovanovitch

These sophisticated modern rustic interiors are part of a 17th-century ch√Ęteau in Provence designed by Pierre Yovanovitch. Although the rest of the house is not exactly my cup of tea, I really loved these two scenes with the muted neutral hues, the ample use of various wood finishes and the touches of contemporary design through art and accents.

Gray kitchens with oak details

Gray kitchen with oak details. Arched alcove shelving

Inspired by this beautiful half-arched alcove in a scandinavian apartment kitchen, I find myself loving this light gray and oak combination more and more lately. From a contemporary design to a more country style this neutral soft color palette creates a smooth and casually elegant result.
