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?

5 simple tips to cozy up your outdoors for fall

5 simple tips to cozy up your outdoors for fall | My Paradissi

We went to our friend's home last night for some bbq and chatting at their terrace and, boy, did it hit me; fall is finally here. It was that blissfully chill temperature when you feel perfectly well with a soft cardi yet it is still warm enough to enjoy some more nights outdoors. I know this type of weather will probably last for at least a month over here but, how is it in your country? Are you still spending some time outside or is it already too crisp to handle? In any case, here are 5 simple tips you can follow to make your outdoor space a tad more cozy and welcoming before the wintery weather comes for good.

My Greek Island Home Guesthouse, Lesvos

My Greek Island Home Guesthouse by Claire Lloyd in Lesvos, Greece. Photo by Carla Coulson

I know, I know, I just got back from vacation and I'm supposed to start focusing on work and stuff but then the internet is so full of temptations I really could not skip this one. Carla, a dearest photographer and blogger, shared her summer vacation experiences on the island of Lesvos and got me weak on the knees. It might just be the amazing guesthouse, My Greek Island Home Guesthouse, owned and designed by Claire Lloyd (perhaps you know her from her book) that she stayed in, the stunning, full of sensation photography of Carla and her charming description of her blissful days there, or simply that I want some more days off that I really can't take my eyes off of these photos ;)
