Black and white Parisian apartment

Black and white Parisian apartment. Photo by Felix Forest via Living Inside

Ehem, where did September go? With a home renovation, a baby seeking for 24/7 attention and new projects coming in on top of existing ones, I'm living in a whirl of craze excitement, work and exhaustion.  If you ask me, I'm having a pretty great time (although I do have some minor panic attacks from now and then) but I literally can't feel the time passing by. Hopefully, things will settle down in the following weeks as we move into our new apartment (and be looking at this view from my kitchen window) but for now all I want to say is, hi, isn't this Parisian apartment swell?

● Cutest pom pom seagrass basket.
Miniature worlds are so much fun.
● Gorgeous studios to work in.
● Most amazing wood and marble tray you can actually diy. Check out the tutorial here.
● This gallery wall is so awesome (and a great way to beautify the area around the tv).
● Are you also a fan of modern country style? Then have a look at the latest article I wrote on the Interior Collective blog about inspiring bathrooms of a fresh rustic elegance.
● Still having all those things in your home? Time to reconsider (and purge).
● Smart adjustable wooden tray for the sofa.
● This rad pendant lamp went viral in seconds. No wonder why (want one myself).
● Cool way to eat lentils.

White bathrooms with b&w patterned floors

Keeping a room all white gives you the freedom to play with pattern on a surface without suffocating the space. The contrasting geometric patterns on the floors of these bathrooms are an excellent example. If you are interested to read more on this subject, I have written an article on eclectic bathrooms with patterned tile floors on The Interior Collective blog. Check it out here and leave your thoughts!

● Girlie but not that much sweatshirt.
● Always in for a salad looking that good.

● This boy's room is so cool.
Is it true? Painkillers actually help a broken heart feel less pain?
● Sweater season is (almost) here! Please get me this ^^
● Hehe, quite right.
● Is it ok if I ask for my christmas present now? Ahem, dear Santa, can I have these?

Scandinavian inspired entryway

Scandinavian inspired entryway | My Paradissi

Have I mentioned that we are moving in our new apartment in less than a month? We are not going far, just a few floors higher in the same building we are living right now. I just can't get more excited with all the new possibilities and the almost blank canvas I'm about to redesign ^^.
The new apartment is not much bigger but has a whole different floorplan layout with more separate rooms. That means a bigger kitchen, a room for my baby boy and an entryway (and lots of balconies and outdoor space- yay!). The entryway is next to the kitchen and the kid's room and is large enough to accommodate my home office as well. Although I have a rough idea of how I am going to decorate the space, I have been looking around for extra inspiration especially regarding the entry storage / shoe storage, hangers and mirrors part. Here are some of my favorite finds :)

Artwork for kids

Artwork for kids. Kids bedroom design by My Paradissi

I got a few requests on sharing the art I used on the kids room I designed a few weeks ago so I thought it would be easier for all to gather them all together in a post. As in any other 'grown-up' room in the home, art plays a major role in creating character and completing the design concept. In this particular room, the wall and accent colors are neutral (black, white and blonde wood that is) so color is infused in the space through art, books and toys. Although I myself am a fan of monochrome, kids do need their fair share of color, right ;)

DIY: Minimalist clothes rack

DIY: Minimalist clothes rack

There are basically two reasons why one would probably want to have a clothes rack in their home. One, there is a shortage/lack of closets or other storage space and, two, they have a cool wardrobe they would love to display/show off. Actually, these diys give yet another great excuse to sport a rad minimalist clothes rack in your place, as they are too darn pretty not to decorate with. Plus, their tutorials are really straight forward and simple to follow. Would you make one yourself then?

P.s. For those of you who love the idea but are not happy crafters, there are some really pretty clothes racks to buy here, and also this one and that one are similar to the ones above.

Gorgeous contemporary apartment

Gorgeous contemporary apartment. Styling by Simona Sbordone, photo by Federico Cedrone

Love the strong personality and the inspiring contrast in this apartment styled by Simona Sbordone. The contemporary design is enhanced by the moody vibe coming from the monochromatic furnishings on a white background and the subtle ambient lighting. The soft touches added by the rugs create a cozy atmosphere that smoothes down the stark minimal design. Oh, and that gorgeously styled open wardrobe is to die for (although it definitely needs matching clothing to look equally impressive ;). Enjoy!

Are you a fan of pure crispy linen bedding? Great! I myself sure can't get enough of the fresh, casual and sophisticated vibe they add to the room. Due to their unrefined and delicate nature, the handmade ones are even more precious and gorgeous than those purchased from large retailers. And, what better place to shop handmade than the amazing Etsy? Here are my favorite shops of great handmade linen bedding to check out. Happy shopping ^^
