I'm loving this sophisticated pendant necklace.

This IKEA hack is so cool.

Here's a smart idea to uplift your entry door decor.

This natural woven baby bassinet is perfection.

I would so want to see this installation from up close.

A great roundup of dining room design ideas (scroll down to see my take ;)

Drooling over this simple apple bars recipe.

Most adorable knit dress.

Check out this sophisticated country kitchen moodboard I put together for Interior Collective. Is there something from the list you'd use in your home?

The Urban Jungle Book

Wednesday, October 26, 2016
Urban Jungle Book by Igor Josifovic and Judith De Graaff

Ever since I dove down the blog world and started spending hours browsing and reading interesting content, I have lost my affinity towards books. I hate even saying that but there’s really not much I can do after cramming my brain with all the information I find online. That being said, I was ecstatic to prove myself wrong on that matter a few days ago. For, you see, a really cool book found its way into my hands and had me spending a whole evening on the sofa devouring each and every page of it.

3 cool diy projects to try

Not that I have plenty of free time on my hands to try out these diys but I sure wish I did. They look so cool and I'd love to have them as part of my home decor. I wish you enjoy them as well and that you do have the time to make any or all of them :)

Life lately..

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

I have been meaning to write this post quite some time now but then again I somehow never got myself to it. You might have noticed that things have been a bit slow on this blog (and social media for that matter) and that’s for a very good reason. You see, summer has found me with some really exciting projects I gave heart and soul at that, unavoidably, left me a bit drained of inspiration for my little piece of heaven, my Paradissi. 

The first project is a home e-decor in Houston through Decorilla. Such an exciting project it was, I’m a bit sad to see it coming to an end. When there is a great and constant relation with the clients (which was more than awesome this time) it is guaranteed that the result will be thrilling no matter the (thousand) miles that separate us. I promise I’ll share a few shots of the finished project as soon as I’m able to : )

The second project is a bit closer to me, actually right outside Heraklion, and it is a hotel renovation. Now, that’s exciting : D You probably know my love of beautiful hotels and now it is my turn to actually challenge myself into creating a dream place to vacate. It is a beautiful surrounding, a few meters from an astonishing beach but, alas, it comes with a lot of difficulties mainly due to its structure and layout. Still lots of work on this one, but I’ll get to you with more info along the way.

And lastly, my third project, by no means has to do with design yet it devours most of my time and energy. I’m pregnant with baby no.2! I’ve just passed the first trimester and I can safely say that this time, it was no walk in the park. I had an awful morning sickness every single day that lasted all day long. And tiredness and sleepiness. Thankfully, with the vast help of my family, these days seem to be over now and I’m waking every morning to a more energized and full day. 

I am planning on posting more often again here but, please, bear with me a little longer. Thank you so much for always being present through my highs and lows. This blog is you and you know it :*

Textile sculpture by Rowan Mersh

I'm mesmerized by the ethereal sculptural works of Rowan Mersh. Look like they sway subtly under the softest breeze of thin air on a swan's feathered skin or the delicate corals dancing with the ever going currents of the deep seas. Would really want to see them from up close, I'm sure the feeling will be multiplied then. Hop over to his site to enjoy more of his works.

La Granja Ibiza Design Hotel

Monday, October 10, 2016
La Granja Ibiza Design Hotel

One thing is for sure when it comes to La Granja Ibiza; this definitely not your average island retreat. Not even close. And that's for two main reasons. One, the moody dark interiors that I guess will look even darker compared to the bright Mediterranean skies and two, the stark almost monastic minimalistic rustic design of the rooms. For its unique and highly creative design, it feels like the perfect place to relax, detox and unwind with fresh food from the surrounding farm and a soul soothing sense of community that runs through the place. Read more about this inspiring place here.

I spent a good time browsing through the exquisite work of Griffiths Design Studio this morning. The shots in this post are from an apartment in Alber Park they designed but I insist you pay a visit to their site and have a look at their other projects as well. So much interior design inspiration in one place!
