High ceiling dining


I love these high ceiling dining rooms with the extra large, white ball pendant. Simple, eclectic and so feel good, don't you think?

Ethnic inspired bedrooms


This morning I woke up to an enormous craving for some sunshine which, alas, could not be found anywhere. On the contrary, it hasn't stopped raining all day long. Well, nothing can be done about it rather than enjoy some sunlit images of bedrooms dressed with ethnic accents and daydream of warmer climates. 

A fresh giveaway is coming next week. Don't forget to check out My Paradissi for more details! xo

Spring dreaming


Bright spaces, purples and mints, cozy surroundings, soft materials and flowers, many flowers. What better way than this to bring spring a little bit closer? Hope the rain will stop soon though.. I've missed a stroll out in the sun!

French inspired


Hey lovelies! Thank you all for your kind wishes, I actually do feel better now (apart from that terrible cough that keeps going on). As people say, it is when you lose something that get to appreciate it and same goes in cases of mild illnesses when lying in bed, feeling dizzy and achy that comes most of the inspiration and the yearning to get straight up and conquer the world. Hope I hold to this feeling as long as I can and appreciate what life is giving me every single day. 
Thank you again for being there and supporting My Paradissi, a blog created with love and passion for the beauty and elegance. Here is some South France inspired interiors I'd love to share with you today.

Fever


Well, as it seems, winter will not go away without leaving back some casualties. I managed to finish this collage to get me inspired while having rather annoying aches and fever. Aren't these hot water bottle covers just too cute?

Blog spotting: Bright, Bold & Beautiful


As springtime is on it's way and days get bigger, I feel even more drawn towards bright colors, sunlit environments and feel-good attitudes. It is the most natural thing, therefore, to fall in love with Bright, Bold & Beautiful, an inspirational blog by Laura Trevey, that is exactly what the title describes. Filled with ideas, art, interior design, fashion, how-tos and unique giveaways, BB&B is a blog not to be missed.
Laura is not only a well acknowledged blogger but a exquisite artist as well. Her watercolor drawings are the epitome of optimism and positive attitude. Her paintings drop me straight into the heart of summer! Check out her Etsy shop and browse through all her astonishing work. And the best part of all is that she does sell internationally! 
p.s. : Have a look at Laura's  art studio, where she creates her masterpieces,  here.

Silence


Enjoying a cup of hot coffee in the utter Sunday silence, inspired by images of calmness and serenity. Although I'm not particularly fond of Sundays, they can prove to be little gems considering the circumstances. So, how's your day today?

How big is your bedroom?


My bedroom is big enough to take a double bed with it's side tables and a dresser, cute and cozy, no complaining. When I come across such warm and big-enough-to-be-my-living-room bedrooms, however, my heart skips a beat. Extra sofas and armchairs, bookcases and a fireplace.. well, why not ask for it? Universe is chaotic enough, who knows, maybe I'll have one of my own someday!

Reckless moments


Being in summer mood today; I know, it's still far away.. but with the February sun smiling down at me I can't help it. Perhaps now it's time for all those worries of mine to fly away and leave me, like a trusting little girl, playing and laughing and dancing, embracing the prosperity of the present and nothing more.
Have a good day! xoxo

Of wood and brass


Here's to kitchens of wood and brass; all those warm metals, rattan and botany, mix with wood into a blissful outcome of ethnic and rustic combined.

So peaceful and serene.. a hidden sanctuary of natural tones and warming daylight. A place to silence the mind.

Stress relief


'Morning 'morning all 'round the blogosphere! It's already mid week -still not in terms with the tremendous speed that time flies- and haven't even come close doing all the things I have planned for this week. Sometimes I feel like 24 hours are not enough (I never thought I'd say that) and stress runs through my veins like crazy.. I don't like being stressed (who does, anyway), it diminishes life's quality whatsoever. So now, I leave all the planning for later and do some priorities rethinking: chill out a bit, enjoy every moment of the day and add some extra cheer to every chore (hope I can do that..). Oh, and keep daydreaming about beautiful, welcoming interiors for sure! xoxo
