It's not that I am thinking of having babies or anything... I just love everything that is vintage and old and has a story to tell. These baby prams have definitely something to share. (ok, I know that some of them is made nowadays and brand new, but the style of them still takes us back in time.)
Although I would love to have any of these baby prams for my (future) baby, I have to admit it is probably not the most comfortable transportation in our cities now. I think I would need a medium-size truck to bring the pram with me to go to the city for a stroll. :)
Anyway... I've still not given up the idea of having one of these eventualy - when I'll have the need. I don't care if it's impossible to manage with it. :) They are just way to beautiful and magical! ...and if not for my baby, at least to my home as a decoration.
P.S.: Don't forget to dress up a bit of vintage while you are storlling with your vintage baby pram. :) X
Although it is not yet finished, I couldn't wait... I have to show this gorgeous, beautiful, unbelievable apartment. The home of the fashion designer Jekatyerina, born in the coldest Syberia, from a Russian mother and a Hungarian father.
She sees, she dreams, she creates, and never give up, never settle for less, (almost) never accept any compromise. :) Her home was designed and made slowly by slowly, step by step with passion, love and admiration. I hope she never give up on finishing this dream... so it can come true!
The 'small' things
*Russian silverware; red KitchenAid turmix; white Gorenje stove; 'I Love NY' fridge magnet; Cherry Blossom, Chinese thermos
The bathroom... or more like a cynderella story :)
*the white head decoration was brought from Dubai... and yes, it broke during the journey back home. But who cares... it is even better like this! :)
The black bedroom

...more than you would think. :) This time it is Friday, when we do our weekly post 'Together with KlassDSign'. And it is all about 'Paper'!
In today's digital world, we think that we do not use paper at all anymore. But it is (unfortunately) suprizing how much paper is being used or wasted in a day. Think of the napkins, the toilet paper, the receipts, the packaging of ...basically everything, the advertising brochures, the newspapers, our notes... And these are only papers we use and then throw away.
What about our environment? Our homes? Thinking of wallpapers, lamps, shelves, tables or any kind of decorations. Paper is a cheap and great material for any of these. You can be extremely creative and innovative. There are so much possibility in paper usage.
The latest great product that I love is by the super-talented, Dutch (what else :) ?) design group - Vij5 Design. (in the picture above - lower left) The found the way of compressing newspapers and cut in a way it creates a very hard and strong material... almost like wood. Fantastic! :)
We know him, we love him... it is never get old... his designs will live forever! Tord Boontije <3 X
P.S.: Look around and do something with all that paper you find! Be creative and have fun! XX

Is it the sunshine? Or is this the crystal that is so clear and yet, so mystical? According to Feng Shui, crystal brings you money and multiply all positive energy in a room. Mr. Swarovski made a billion-furtune out of it... and if it comes in the pure from of diamond... there are no woman who would say: thanks, but no thanks. :)
Sometimes it is too shiny, sometimes it is too cold or sharpe and rigid... still we love the crystal. Especially how the light brakes through it to million pieces. Take a look in how many forms crystal is around us and we don't even realize it. ...or is its shine that makes us blind to see?
P.S.: Try to hand a crystal in your home to see it is really brings you all that it supposed to bring. Can't hurt, no? :) X
