White kitchen design ideas

White kitchen design ideas at My Paradissi
[Shop similar: leaning bookcase | tolix chair | pendant | retro toaster]

There is no doubt that the best canvas to start creating on is a white canvas. Same goes with interior design and these kitchens are her to prove it. All five of them have plain white cabinetry but, as you can see, each one has its own character defined by its decoration details. Large scale accents, like the tile floor on the first shot or an antique trestle table, can produce a more dramatic atmosphere, whereas small, colorful items strategically scattered inside the rooms, are used as peak points of attention for a unique and interesting result.
Which one of these kitchens speaks to your heart? Would you pick one of these styles for your own home?

Folder: Bathroom

I feel rather inspired lately by reclaimed wood bathroom vanities. Like this old table transformed into a beautiful vanity with a round bowl sink and the amazing mirror hanging over it with the help of a couple of ropes. The vintage light fixture, the towel basket and the black shelves are also great finishing touches to the decor.

Lovintage finds



Kathy's shop on etsy, Lovintage Finds, is packed with vintage goodies for the home with a rustic and sometimes industrial essence, exactly my cup of tea, that is. It's noteworthy that some of the listings are her creations, like the burlap pouf, which I totally fell in love with.

I'd love to get lost in these streets, smelling the flowers, feeling the vibe..

House in Serifos, Greece


Today's house tour takes us to one of Cyclades' most beautiful islands, Serifos. There, architect George Zafiriou has built a unique abode with the help of talented designer Manolis Pandelidakis. The house blends perfectly well with the rocky environment, the harsh and natural tones contradicting with the fresh blues of the sea.
The materials used are stone, concrete and wood on natural tones expanding from ecru and ivory to grey and black. The texture of the linens and the reclaimed woods add texture to the sleek stucco surfaces of the floors and the built in furniture while the different levels of the rooms and the small openings framing the views create a depth and fluidity to the interior.
I have to admit that this house get really close to my dream home. I love the neutral and easy-going theme and I just adore those smart details, like the chalkboard behind the sink, the built in bed and sink formation and the bathroom. Oh, that bathroom!

Inspire the weekend


Hello my friends, how are you?
It has started to look like winter again here, with the rain and the cold and all such things, and the strolls under the sun will once again turn into cozy moments next to a burning fireplace, on a sheepskin rug with a heart-filling cup of cocoa and good company. Maybe, a fulfilling dinner at a cozy restaurant would be a blissful treat this weekend. I love being in warm, protected indoors that smell of delicious recipes being prepared, while hearing the roaring wind and the pouring outside. But then, who wouldn't like such thing?
Hope you're having a beautiful weekend! xoxo

Who could tell that snowflakes are that whimsical up close.

Knit bomb your place.

Love this dining table..

..and these chairs to match.

A dreamy b&b for the summer holidays.

Love this modern nightstand.

Plant your succulents in tiny eggshell pots.

Mouthwatering clementine cake recipe. Yum.

Folder: Bedroom

This bedroom belongs to one of my favorite, most picturesque hotels in Greece, San Giorgio in Mykonos. In case you've missed it (hard, cause its all around the internet for quite a time now) you have to see the whole thing here.

DIY: Confetti pillowcase


I'm a fan of plain ol' white bedding. I must confess, however, that I love to decorate my basic bed setting with some patterned pillows and throws, like florals, stripes and polka dots, just to create a more playful atmosphere. I'll be trying out this diy by Joy of frock files on to a pair of white pillowcases of mine (I.own.a.lot. you know) for sure. If you want to try it for yourselves as well, see the tutorial at you are my fave.

P.s. If you are a fan of confetti dots on fabrics, you should check out this diy as well!

You must try to generate happiness within yourself..

Neutral and serene bedrooms

[Shop similar: wall lamp | nightstand | floral pillow]

Today's selection has to do with cushy elegance, subtle glam and serene, super-soft bedrooms. Neutral hues on a white canvas, wooden furniture with a vintage and partly rustic attitude and a bed styling to splurge on. I can go on and on about all those layered textures, the delicate difference of ecru and ivory shades, the surprise elements that add a playful contrast to the decor, but you have to see for yourselves. Enjoy my friends! xoxo

Folder: Bathroom

I just love this clawfoot tub by Catchpole & Rye. I also love the french country styling of the shooting, that enhances the playful elegance of the tub and makes the room lustworthy!

Worley's Lighting


I'm in love with the Worley's Lighting creations; rustic inspired lamps with reclaimed materials, a vintage essence paired with industrial uniqueness and lots of imagination. Oh please, I can literally find a hundred spots inside my house to place their creations. Amazing!

I found this little goat on the table hilarious and I just had to share it with you. Mixing rural and domestic life is something I've been thinking about a lot lately, I guess this shot proves they can get along quite humorously, don't you think?

Song Saa Private Island, Cambodia


It's time for some distant travel daydreaming..
When I stumbled upon these photos of the Song Saa resort in Koh Rong archipelago in Cambodia, I found myself having a hard time returning to my working tasks. My brain, just like a thirsty guy at the desert, couldn't get enough of these fresh, invigorating and deeply relaxing images of this earthy heaven. They brought peace and calmness into my soul just by looking at them; I can't even start to imagine what a real life experience would probably get me.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did and that they bring you a vibrant start to a healthy new week! xoxo

Inspire the weekend


Hello my friends, how are you?
Are you as eager as me for this weekend? The sun is shining over here after a rainy night, which makes a perfect excuse for some outdoor excursion. I miss the smell of fresh, moist grass and the sparkles of sun on the still wet tree leaves. That said, I'm leaving you with a couple of bright and welcoming interiors to get you dreaming of cloudless days and longer daytime hours. Don't you just love that pink velvet pillow on the crisp linens and the mini floral bathrobes below?
Wish you a beautiful weekend, whatever your plans are! xoxo
