DIY: Gorgeous mirrors for your wall

A wall mirror is a great alternative to art plus adds light, shine and depth to a room. Large mirrors can be a hit but so are smaller ones that you craft yourself. For that matter, here are 6 simple tutorials on how to make your own statement piece for your home.

Art gallery wall idea for your home

Art gallery wall idea to shop | My Paradissi

I really do know how stressful and mind puzzling an art gallery wall can be to the untrained person. Where to begin, how to put everything together, which art to choose, how much will the whole thing cost are some of the most common questions people ask when they are about to decorate a wall in their home. Based on that popular need I created a gallery wall that you can shop as is and hang on your wall the way I show on the images. All you have to do is visit the links below and place your order and when the prints arrive have them framed in the shades and mats that are shown on the visualisations (black, white and light wood). The gallery concept is based on neutral and pastel shades that will look great on most scandinavian inspired homes and all the prints are from independent artists that sell on Etsy. Please, let me know if you have any questions regarding this art gallery idea or if you like another design/shade concept to share with you in a following post.

Gorgeous marble bathrooms

I'm not sure there are many more materials that can bring out the glam and elegance of a space as successfully as marble. Bathrooms, you have to admit, look so exquisite and luxurious with the fluid veins of this astounding natural material decorating the walls and floors. Love a contemporary take with simple, sleek forms on the furniture and accessories and a minimalistic approach regarding the design. I wouldn't mind at all calling any of these spaces as my own (rephrase: I'd so love to have a bathroom like that!)
