It's been a hell of a couple of days with a broken computer and a demanding to-do list getting into pause but, hopefully, I'll be back on track tomorrow. These inspiring office nooks sure get me into serious working mode ;)

Shopping at S2 20

Monday, August 29, 2016
leather coat hanger from S2 20

It is always a pleasant surprise (or, may I say, some kind of relief) when I come across small online stores that have a homey, friendly vibe. Like the feeling when you wander alone in an unfamiliar city and suddenly come across a dear old friend out of nowhere. That feeling of belonging, of a cozy hug. S2 20 is that kind of store. I'm not sure if it is the impeccable styling talent of the owner shining through all the photos or the carefully curated collection of goods on the store with a focus on independent artists and handmade products varying from homeware to artprints and apothecary but the feeling is there whatever the case. 

Hege Morris, the owner behind S2 20, is a fellow blogger that I happen to follow her blog, Hege in France, a long time now. I was ecstatic to see her put together S2 20 and brave her way through the vast internet world with such a success. And, while I have the habit of spending lots of moments in her store (my latest order includes the incredible memo bottle to have always with me in my bag and this bamboo basket for the magazines in the living room), today is the first time I am mentioning it on this blog. Well, rest assured this ain't gonna be the last ;)

Terrace decor for fall by My Paradissi ©Eleni Psyllaki

I've been meaning to take a few shots from our terrace to share on the blog all the way from the beginning of summer but then again I never got (made) the time for that. In most occasions (read: all the time) our terrace serves as a playroom for our boy so you can probably guess the number of toys and mess that covers the space. A happy place indeed ;) Not a place for relaxation and much needed grown up time on the other side. The unexpected and sudden drop of temperature the last few days got me longing for some silent nights out there, under the city starry sky (the awnings go up at nightfall), with good company, candlelights and a glass of red wine. It was a great timing, for that matter, when I received my order from India May Home, a gorgeous online store stacking on scandinavian inspired bohemian and ethnic homeware. The candleholder is just about to be lit, the super soft sheepsking transforms the wooden sofa into a cozy nook and the black brass tray, here holding some favorite props, is most helpful to keep glasses and other serveware in place. Really looking forward to putting this plan into action tonight ^^

Scandinavian home office inspiration. Styling by Laura Seppänen and photography by Krista Keltanen

How do you do it when you have tons of work to do but can't discipline yourself to do it no matter what? Really, I'm curious! It's been a couple days now that I catch myself staring at the screen not being able to produce anything. A blank state. Well, I guess, that's what happens when you skip a vacation :/ Anyways, this little desk, styled by Laura Seppänen and photographed by Krista Keltanen, is a boost of inspiration (so is the rest of the petite apartment, do check it out). Let's see ;)

G House in Brussels, Belgium, designed by Olivier Dwek

It's only a few days ago that I posted about the incredible Silver House by Olivier Dwek but I just couldn't leave another one of his works out of the spotlight. While these two homes look considerably different at first sight, they do have some very important similarities. To name the most obvious ones, the attention to the details, the scarcity of decorations and a deep respect for the environment and culture each building resides. Really can't get over the exquisite and kind of eclectic minimalism that this townhome framed by the most incredible 1907 architecture displays. Do you?

Quite contradictory, yet these two sinks have some things in common; the exquisite use of materials (concrete in one case and brass and marble in the other) and the fun, handmade piping faucets that unmistakably steal the show. Which one is your fave (me, it's so hard to choose ^^)
