FUN LINKS

A beautiful linen wraparound dress to wear all day long.

Good to hear: Ikea will ban all single-use plastics until 2020.

The mesmerizing digital universes of Teun van der Zalm are mesmerizing (found via cocorrina.co).

Take me there (I'll take the food too, thanks).

A gorgeous butter dish to add a Zen vibe to the breakfast table.

Btw, I'll be trying this for breakfast tomorrow.

Food for thought.

I keep seeing these sandals on pinterest and quite frankly I'm so tempted to buy them although I'm all set with footwear for the summer. So stylish!

So inspired to see this compostable single-use tableware collection by Wasara. I mean, too pretty to throw away, right?

Swooning over this vaulted ceiling bathroom.

1 | This adorable baby bonnet with bunny ears is sure to make a cute baby cuter, if that's even possible (Lapetitealice, €38)

4 | This waxed canvas bag is such a stylish and sustainable way to bring lunch with you wherever you go (ItalicHome, €17.74)
5 | Oh, just look at this fun little breakfast bowl! I love the long handles on both sides and the delicate dotted pattern it has (TerraCeramica, €30.16)
6 | This artwork reminds me of hot lazy summer afternoons with your loved one, such a heartwarming feeling it has (ClareElsaesser, €17.74)

My Paradissi is 8 | Graphics by Eleni Psyllaki for My Paradissi

My Paradissi turned 8 this week and I'm turning the blog into a book!

Ok just kidding, but I just wanted to take a moment to THANK YOU ALL for being around all these years (or as much as each of you personally is), to THANK YOU for your insights, love, comments, love, feedback, inspiration and love.

It might sound cliché but it certainly ain't for if it hadn't been for you this blog would not exist right now. And without this blog, none of my wildest dreams (a.k.a. full time freelancing on my favorite interior design business with amazing clients from all over the world from the comfort of my home) would exist either.

So, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, you are my stars ^_^

Coffee table vignette and Wabi-Sabi Welcome book. Photo and styling by Eleni Psyllaki for My Paradissi

I have been trying to find some time when kids are sleeping to enjoy this book (Wabi-Sabi Welcome by Julie Pointer Adams) but I always end up preferring to nap instead! Sounds familiar toddler mamas out there? In other news, I think I should be on the lookout for a new coffee table there. I have substituted our generic black metal glass top one with this vintage storage basket but it just doesn't fit there 100%. Any ideas?
