Vintage baby carriage


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 kitchen

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

The terrace that has the same size as the whole apartment

Wallpaper that is waiting to be put to it's final place

P.S.: To be continued... X

 


...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

If you loved the pom-poms on your knitted hats when you were kid, you will definitely enjoy making these cute colorful, wool pom-poms. They are super-easy to make and are great source of decoration anywhere - in your house, on your clothes or as in my case in the car. :)


You will need: wool thread, cardboard, compass and scissors

1. Cut out two circles from the cardboard with the same size. Then cut out from each of them a smaller sized circle. Place the two pieces on the top of each other.

2. Twist the wool thread all over the cardboard (from the small hole to the sides) as much as you like. The more wool you twist on, the thicker the tuft will be. If you want an extra look, use more colors from the wool thread in the same tuft.

3. Between the two layers of cardboard, cut all the threads and with one single thread tie a knot, so it stays together. After cutting and making a knot we do not need the cardboards anymore. The tuft is ready! If it is necessary you can shape a little bit the help of scissors to get a beautiful, round pom-pom.

...and voila':

P.S.: Use as many colors as possible to achieve a bold and happy look! Enjoy! X

'Give me your eyes for just one second

give me your eyes so I can see

Everything that I keep missing

give me your love for humanity...'

This week my post together with KlassDSign is very much 'interior-based'. I didn't add anything from fashion or other areas. I focus only on the beauty and mystic of the attics. They are so magical to me, it's like I am in a home of a fairy or an angel...

This is my all-time-top-favorite attic in the world :)

...and the beautiful wonders of Mr Wanders... (Lute Suites in Amsterdam) ...my personal favorite is Suite #5 (the 1st picture) :)

The attics can be industrial or feminine and romantic, or in most cases practical and space-saving. Since in an attic the height of the room is less then normally and because of the diagonal lines (logs, ceiling) the whole space has a special look and atmosphere.

Even if we think that in the attic the only possible room can be is bedroom. It is possible to build rooms for functions like bathroom, office, living room... but I think the best is if you make in your attic the world of your children. They would enjoy it the most! :) Until then, just keep it to yourself!

I envy all those guys in Scandinavia for all the space and summer-light they have. In one of these rooms would fit my whole apartment. :)

P.S.: I would die for any of these to be honest! :)

I am sure you had said at least once in your life: I don't have anything to wear! This happens most of the times sitting in front of our closet and having the feeling of absolute lost and fear of not knowing what to put on. Of course in most cases it is a bit of exaggeration. Generally he reason for us to say this is the wrongly designed and built wardrobe or closet. The most common problem is actually the fact that we have way too many clothes and we cannot find the perfect one in the big chaos - there is not enough space, the shelves are too narrow, there is not enough hangers, it is impossible to see through the drawers, and concerning the shoes - we forget half of the shoes we own, because we cannot even reach the shoeboxes.

And yet, it is so simply what would be like the perfect closet for girls. There should be a lot of clothes, shoes and accessories stored in a visible, reachable way. It should be easy and effortless to try anything on, of course would need a huge mirror for that (or even two), and in the meantime we don't want anything more than to feel like a princess.

To be able to fit all our clothes, accessories and even our shoes in our closet, one thing we need for sure - space. It is important to built a closet as big as possible - of course based on our given possibilities and features of our home. If we cannot build a separate room for closet, we could arrange a wardrobe space for example in the bedroom, behind our bed. In an ideal closet, there is place besides the general shelves and storing areas, there is space for an armchair or a puff, where we could try the clothes with comfort, a large sized mirror with enough space in front of it, or even a dressing table where we could finish our make-up or perfect our look.

The size should be around 15-20 square meters. If we are lucky, there is window in our closet, since the real color of the clothes can be seen the best in natural light. Without this, we should use warm, general and local lights. It is very important that we never direct light to the mirror, but always to ourselves standing in front of the mirror!

Moreover it is essential that the clothes have the 'main role' in our closet. Our main goal should be to have the clothes in our closet in a visible and accessible way, and nevertheless we protect them in order to be able to use them for a long time. There is nothing that distract the focus from the clothes if we paint the walls white or we place them on white shelves. Especially if we have open shelves, we shouldn't be afraid to have a boring 'white' look, since the clothes are very colorful and will add life into the neutral background. A very interesting look can be achieved for example if we group the clothes according to colors. In the case of closed wardrobes, we can chose bright, vivid patterned wallpapers to the walls, but an extravagant rug or puff could be another solution to add some color to the closet.

There is something that is even more important than choosing the right colors - organizing. It is a great way to organize the clothes, accessories by categories. A category can be anything, the important thing is that we understand it and be able to find the clothes easily according to them. I know for many of us it seems impossible, especially if we have  an artistic, creative mentality and we are unable to think logically or rationally.

The best way to store our shoes for example is in boxes with window, or on open shelves, so we can see them all the time and not forget them. We can save a lot of time in our busy life, if we make the drawers or other storage boxes as well more clear and organized by different signs and labels.

And of course if somebody just can't control herself and her creativity concerning the perfect closet, it is never hurts anybody to build a colorful, lacy, ruffled, pink, over-the-top boudoir-like closet. :) Since the most important thing is - like with every other room - to have a closet that we love, make our life easier and most importantly we can feel like a real woman there.

P.S.: Love your clothes, because they are here to make you happy and beautiful! X
