Minimalistic farmhouse in Belgium

Wednesday, June 29, 2016
Minimalistic farmhouse in Belgium by Vincent Van Duysen

The calmness and serenity of this country house in Belgium, designed by Vincent Van Duysen, is so inspiring. This modern world sanctuary, deprived of the unnecessary luxuries, makes me want to deny all my townhome practicalities and switch to a rural living instead. Wouldn't mind cooking fresh produce in this minimalistic kitchen, lounge on this casual cozy linen sofa by the open fire or wake up to the field views every morning. In fact, it sounds like bliss ^^

The Weekend

Scandinavian bedroom with grey linen bedding. Photo Jonas Berg, styling Emma Fisher via Stadshem


Spending the whole vacation in this dress.

Creatives are like athletes. They need as well to train those intellectual muscles.

Love how such a little accessory can transform a ponytail.

Do you agree? Are you guilty of any of those annoying vacation trends?

Craving for those ultra summery vegetarian sandwiches.

While trying to keep my kid (and us) cool in the heart of the city, I found these ideas both fun and creative and with loads of water involved.

This swimsuit. Swoon.

Built-in showers and baths are sort of my soft spot.

Inspired by this quote with the most straight-to-the-point made up word.

Most gorgeous armchair for the outdoor space.

Really don't mind the lack of extras or color in these pure grayscale minimalistic kitchens. On the contrary, actually, I'd love to spend some time in any of them cooking or hanging around; the two most important things one can do in a kitchen (no, washing the dishes isn't a part of them at all). Hope you like and enjoy these as much as I do ^^

E-Design: Casual breezy living room

E-design service by My Paradissi | Moodboard and floorplan layout

Since quite of you have recently asked what an e-design package actually looks like I decided to share with you a sample to get an idea. It is not very different from the usual moodboards I post here on the blog ever so often but there is one big difference; all the furniture and accessories are picked based on the client's style, needs and budget. Sounds legit, right? And why choose to have an e-design for your space instead of a traditional design service? Let's just say that an e-design package is more like a diy helping list, suitable for those who don't mind putting personal work on their home decorating and save some extra bucks on the designer's fee. An e-design package, on the other hand, is not for those who need thorough guidance or someone to take care of all the decorating details and be there 24/7. That's what traditional design services do. Also, an e-design service can be provided to any client around the world, no matter where they live, since all communication and shopping is made through the internet. Hope this answers some of your questions but feel free to drop me a line if you need more info or request a quote for a room you want to have decorated!

Those tempting turquoise pool waters

Turquoise pool waters, minimalistic outdoor design | Laura Goodall

While running errands in the hottest of days, I really wish I were somewhere amongst these minimalistic pool settings, enjoying the pure clear turquoise waters. For that matter, check out this pool I designed last year in this contemporary tropical backyard, 10 more backyard pools to steal your heart and these outstanding pools on the Grecian islands. Will you join me, mentally at least? :)

Small minimalistic white apartment

The White Retreat, Sitges, Spain. Small all white apartment design by CaSA. Photo by Roberto Ruiz

Prepare yourself for a great deal of white. Objectively, this 36sqm apartment designed by CaSA, is not for everyone. The all white design (and talking literally in this case) came to fruition under the guidance of its owner, a French Art historian and curator, who very much needed a clean bright space in 'silence and light'. I would love to live in such a place for a while and feel the thorough lack of color. I think I might actually enjoy it there ;) I would undoubtedly opt for the bathroom, however. I'm all for black and white grid tiles lately! What do you think of all that white minimalism?

This dress to beat the summer heat.

Flawless country shower.

'The art is not something you apply to your work. The art is the way you do your work, a result of your attitude toward it'. Must read advice for students (and not only) by Charles Eames.

Just look at how this guy transformed his old rusty cargo van (spoiler: perfect vacation getaway vehicle).

This blush leather jacket OMG.

Did you know that growing your own succulents would be so easy (and so cute)?

Not your average farmhouse.

Put this round towel in my beach bag and make me happy.

This pizza to eat without regrets.

Need this tote bag for the summer (but I'm probably getting this one instead =D)

THE ROOM: Sculptural bathroom design

Friday, June 17, 2016
Eclectic bathroom design with marble and oak by François Champsaur in a Parisian apartment

Wait till you see this bathroom meraviglioso. I mean, this bathroom is not just any bathroom, it is more of a piece of art. A sculpture that you can walk into and, ahem, use in a rightful manner. It is not only the impeccable architecture with the curvaceous forms swirling into one another, it is the use of materials as well, with the opulent marble surfaces completing the dramatic oak panelled walls in a match made in heaven. This is the exquisite work of designer François Champsaur for an equally astonishing, renovation of this Parisian apartment. Oh!

See your future home in Virtual Reality

Eclectic minimalistic dining room with gloss concrete floor. Interior design by Eleni Psyllaki @myparadissi

We are living in great times, people! Great technological times that is*. I have been dreaming about this futuristic scenario as an architecture student (we even had a class about it back then- which actually makes me laugh right now :D). Are you familiar with the term VR? Virtual reality is a computer technology that replicates an environment, real or imagined, and simulates a user's physical presence and environment to allow for user interaction (Wikipedia). In other words, wear those tech goggles and dive into the 3d world, baby ^^

Hampton Penthouse. Interior design by Huntly, photo by Brooke Holm

I'm very much intrigued by the easy going yet completely elegant and sophisticated design of this penthouse by Huntly. The modern lines, marble surfaces, warm metals, and soft textiles on a serene white canvas are so my thing right now. Also, the wall to wall sheer white curtains make the whole place even more cozier and welcoming. Swoon ^^

My Paradissi 6 years blogiversary

It is this time of year again that I gasp and awe at the thought of my little blog getting one more year older. 6 years already? 6 years from the day I shyly sat in front of my computer screen creating a blogger account. Oh my, it feels like yesterday. No, actually it feels like lightyears away. A once fun and inspiring hobby has turned to be my profession, my everyday occupation, a milestone in my lifetime whatsoever. Through this blog I created, I realised, I evolved. And I still do, thankfully, and hopefully for many more years to come. And all thanks to you, favorite people, readers, who drop by on this little place on the vast online world, to read, enjoy, be inspired and share the love. THANK YOU SO MUCH. Thank you for actually making my dream a flesh and bone passion. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Before I get soapy, here are the 10 posts you seemed to enjoy most from the year that has passed

And, here are some of my favorites

Also, here are some personal projects I had the pleasure to work on

Thank you again, guys! See you around :)
