Super chunky wool blanket from Ohhio | Decordots


Why, from all things, these should be the next shoe trend?

That's interesting.

Rattan pendant lights are so summer.

Cool way to make ancient ruins whole again.

Mesmerising kinetic sculpture.

I need this gorgeous hanging chair for my terrace so bad.

These are not photos of real food. Can you believe?

Never really grasped the idea of a capsule wardrobe. Maybe that's why.

This renovated fortified tower in southern Greece feels like an incredible vacation experience.

Perfect white bomber jacket (this one too ^^).

Small home office inspiration

Small home office inspiration | 3d visualisation by Bartosz Kontek

This seems like a pretty little home office to work from; easy to keep distractions out of the door, focus and get things done. Something I really miss now, since the home office in our new apartment is literally in the center of the home and right in between the kitchen and my son's room (=ultimate distraction even as I type these words lol).

How about these super moody bathrooms? We talked about interiors with black walls the other day, but these all black and really dark spaces definitely take your breath away, in a good way or not ;) Love the stucco finish and the light sneaking from the above in the shower of the first photo and the illusion of depth created by the mirror in the second one. So, is this something you'd like for your bathroom?

Blue and white Greek island photos to make you book your holidays now

Perivolas Hotel, Santorini via here
Please excuse me, for I am about to share with a really cheesy post today. It is this time of the year (again) that I start seeing everything in blue and white. Sure, living on an island myself, right next to the sea actually, does add up to the problem, but what I really dream of right now is the iconic minimalism of the curvaceous white plaster forms under the deep blue Aegean sky on the impeccable greek islands. So, while checking on instagram some must visit hotels in Mykonos and Santorini, here are some snapshots I came across that had me just a click away from booking my next vacation there.

Eclectic modernist apartment in Spain

Eclectic modernist apartment in Spain. Design by Andrée Putman. Image by Antonio Terron for AD Spain

Love the understated modern elegance of this spanish apartment designed by Andrée Putman. The statement curved glass brick wall creates an impeccable light flow in the living room and the subtle color palette inspired by oak and walnut hues adds up to the sophisticated atmosphere. Fun thing is that, although this apartment was designed (and photographed) more than 10 years ago, it stays completely relevant and fresh to the contemporary design trends. Follow me, after the jump, for a tremendous house tour!

Bookcase styling tip | Stadshem
Stadshem via here
What do you think of reversed books on bookcases? I still haven’t made up my mind on that. I admit it creates a coherent and clean result, a seamless background to a more minimalistic or scandinavian home design. Helps a lot when you possess books with an ugly spine or subject you’re not interested in reading again (I know I have loads of old uni books I’ll never ever read again but not feeling like parting ways with them). On the other hand, if you actually want to use/showcase your precious hardcovers, then it is completely unpractical (not to mention a kind of blasphemy) not to place them in their rightful manner. Of course, like all things, there is always the middle way solution, where you can style your books guided by how you actually use them to mix and match the shown/hidden spines. So how do you do it? How are the books placed on your bookcase?

I don't know if it is the understated design approach, the soft natural hues or the touch of japanese elegance but this bedroom has definitely stolen my heart. And, the sliding black frame door contrasting the wooden beams is such a gorgeous detail! You can see more photos of this simple yet utterly welcoming apartment here.

Ode to simplicity | My Paradissi

Less is more or, how I like to say, casual minimalism rocks. The effortless interiors, stripped off the unnecessary, neutral soft hues to create a calm sanctuary and a design that supports the everyday lifestyle rather than a stiff staged space hard to touch and to follow. Something like the photos that follow. Hope you find them exceptional as well :)

10 black painted walls to inspire you | My Paradissi

Would you paint a wall in your house black? Or, have you already? Seems to be a huge trending movement right now, especially among the scandinavian designers/bloggers. Not that black interiors haven't been in the spotlight long time now, it's just this simple, minimalistic approach with the white and natural hue touches feels so fresh and easy to copy. And, to be quite frankly, a gallery wall looks so much more impressive on a black background, don't you agree? Here are 10 interiors I came across lately that feature a black painted wall with a great success. Enjoy!

P.s. Black wall in a kid's room, black bedroom walls and minimalistic black kitchens

Blush pink linen bedding seems to be the talk of the town lately. No wonder why.

This lighting installation is pure magic.

Did anyone say embroidery is for aunts and grannies? Of course it ain't. 

This dress is so adorable.

I have a pet peeve for all wood interiors but this one had me thinking over.

Toast certainly does know of aprons. This one got straight into my heart.

On the pressure contemporary moms put themselves to create a dreamworld for their kids. Don't.
