Sleek apartment in Madrid

A sleek and bright contemporary apartment in Madrid by Decoratrix

I know we're only half way through the holiday (yes, for that) but I admit I'm sort of tired from all the whooping Christmas inspiration I see everywhere. Not complaining here (after all I'm to blame for that too), what I want to say is that I missed a few clean cut, simple interiors, without any particular sparkle or shine, just bright and welcoming. Do you know what I mean? Anyway, this apartment in Madrid is all I've been looking for this morning. I adore the floor to ceiling whites, the basic furnishing and accessories being used, the large symmetrical artwall over the sofa, the modernist pieces and the inox kitchen cabinetry. The diffused sunlight floods in the space in really a soothing way; the stillness and calmness of this apartment is beyond description. I know I'd love to spend a few days there. Would you?

Some days ask for certain amount of laid back inspiration, love and purity.. The sun outside my window is just too bright to stay indoors so I'm about to continue my holiday chill round the city. I wish you a beautiful day, friends, and hope from the bottom of my heart that you're indeed having the best time of your life so far ^^

I'm leaving you to celebrate with a rather appropriate post of no more no less 50 different ideas on how to decorate your holiday tablescapes (and I know there are going to be a few these days) Still, let your heart enjoy, rejoice and fill with love and purity.

Country chic home in Crete

Country chic home in Crete decorated for Christmas ©Eleni Psyllaki for My Paradissi

Today I'd like to share with you the home of a dearest close person of mine. Maria has kindly let me photograph her recently renovated apartment with all the amazing Christmas decorations she put together for the holiday. You know how it goes with renovations; concurrently accompanied by redecorations, new perspectives and that great burst of inspiration that comes along with everything new. Maria's home has always been of those welcoming and extra cozy places, with the perfect temperature, lighting and music (that's her husband's deal ;) ambience. Now, if one can say so, the things got even bit warmer and cozier and the Christmas decorations are definitely to blame. Thick evergreen garlands, bowls with traditional cookies, figures and candles accompany a 2 meter high tree wrapped up with gingham ribbon and decorated with dozens of candy canes, rustic and felt ornaments. The space under the tree is soon to be filled with presents for the twins and friends; I really can't tell you how their cute little faces shine from happiness in this surrounding. I know I feel like a child in there ^^

Soffa Magazine

Friday, December 20, 2013
Free online lifestyle magazine from Prague. Soffa Magazine by Radostina Boseva, Adéla Kundrnová and Lenka Hlaváčová.

Last week I shared with you 3 beautiful online magazines you can read at your spare time and dream. Today, I'd like to introduce you to a new, freshly 'printed' one, creation of a beloved blog friend and very talented lady Radostina Boseva of 79ideas. Radostina, along with two more amazing ladies, Adéla Kundrnová and Lenka Hlaváčová, decided to put their passion of beautiful design, meaningful creations and inspiring places on digital paper and, just like that, Soffa Magazine was born. What I really want to point out about this publication is the clear influences it has from its place of origin; the Central and Eastern Europe. The amazing photos of Radostina are a great way to showcase the design, local food traditions and travel stories in the 118 pages of the magazine. And, of course, due to the time it went live, the Soffa Magazine is full of Christmas wonder. A not to miss issue ^^

the BATHROOM

Impressive large bathroom designed by MSR Architecture

I'm always fascinated to see bathrooms the size of a small flat and get even more excited when such bathrooms are so pretty, bright and cozy you want to spend the entire day in there. Take this one, for example, designed by MSR Architectural firm. The ample interior vegetation, the smart roof windows that bring in natural daylight and the unpolished woods used on beams and floors create a really impressive yet down to earth atmosphere. Love the transparency of the shower cabin and its subtle reflections that add up to the airy vibe of the room, as well as the glass door leading to a utterly green backyard. Geez, what a space!
