Since last week I was way too occupied with New York, :) we decided to skip our common post with KlassDSign. So it also means that two weeks passed. :)
Today, our post is all about swings. How can this mystical and fairytale item move into our homes... how can we use them as armchairs, beds or even as tables. Swinging in a swing :) can put us back to our childhood, gives as the feeling of being in a fairytale, flying, freedom and courage.
I'd love to have a beautiful swing in our studio, but unfortunately our ceiling is not strong enough to support any. But of course I didn't give up yet, I WILL have a swing soon! :)
In the meantime, I can swing away in my heart, in my dreams... and in the playground, when noone is watching. :) ...and sometimes even then! :)

People of New York are so diverse... so as everything. There are men, women, girls, boys from everywhere of the world. They are different age, skin color, hair color, culture, etc...
But one thing for sure they have in common - all loves New York City. :) ...I am thankful that I could've been one of them even for a week!
Another week past. So quickly. :) And since today is Thursday, it's time for our special post together with KlassDSign.
This time our theme is 'Bird'. Another theme for the feminine mind. :) One of our favorite. (Our studio is filled with birds and with 'birdie' objects actually.)
We tried to catch all the beauty there is in a bird or it's dreamy feather. And again, found birds on everything... these beautiful animals are everywhere broadcasting the message of freedom. At least this is what I get from them (apart from their beautiful feather coat) :)
If I could fly like a bird...

Polka dots have something so mystical, when I see something with this lovely pattern, immediately I think of a fairytale. Or fairies even...
Did you know that the name 'polka dots' originates from 1870's when both the dance polka and the dots were highly in fashion? All the girls who had danced polka at the social events have been wearing doted dresses. Soon, the pattern of these dresses were named: polka dots. :)
Such a cute story, right?

As the 2nd chapter in our project together with KlassDSign, this week's common theme is Umbrella.
It is such a beautiful object that comes handy these days (at least in Budapest). We carry them with us, we leave them at home (when we would need the most), but who would've thought that we could decorate our home with them? Or that a beautifully shaped umbrella makes a special hat?
Personally, I loooooove the umbrellas! The crazier the better! You can find some unbelievable ones in the Nordic countries (sometimes they have rain, you know) :) In Amsterdam for example I've bought a cute pink-black micro dotted umbrella with ruffles all around! :)
...maybe I should do a chandelier from it!?
P.S.: Don't hate the umbrella when it's raining and you have to carry it! Think of it as a great accessory (that you don't have every day) to add to your outfit! :)

As we mentioned before, we start a new project with KlassDSign. We create one post time to time with the same theme to see how differently or similarly we interpret it. This is the first theme (was chosen by KlassDSign) - wood... or tree... or both..., so I call it: wooden tree. :)
'In here they've got a little tree, how queer?
And who would ever think? And why?
They're covering it with tiny little things
They've got electric lights on strings
And there's a smile on everyone...
Oh, could it be I got my wish?
'Collect the bad habits
That you couldn't bare to keep
Out of the woods, but I love
A tree I used to lay beneath
Kissed teeth stained red
From a sour bottle baby girl
With eyes the size of baby worlds'

1. Summer nails
2. Boheme summer layers
3. A pair of shoes to go with the dress ...or just to HAVE it! :)
4. Speaking of flowers... Let there be Flowers! Everywhere!
5. Love the hair color! (suprise suprise) :)
6. and this oversized pair of earrings
7. With neutral chairs like these ones, you can do anything! I mean if it comes to colors!!! What I would suggest is: throw some yellow, pink or turquise cushions on them, or to achieve a softer look: a nice pastel coral or powder pink can work too.
8. I have min. 5 summer hats. And yet, somehow I always forget to wear them.

In most Western countries white is the color for brides. In the East, it's the color for mourning and funerals. White is often associated with hospitals, especially doctors, nurses, and dentists. Some cultures viewed white as the color of royalty or of dieties. Angels are typically depicted as wearing white. In early Westerns the good guy wore white while the bad guy wore black.
In most cases white is seen as a neutral background color and other colors, even when used in smaller proportion, are the colors that convey the most meaning in a design. The use of white to signify cleanliness or purity or softness.
Some neutral beige, ivory and creams carry the same attributes as white but are more subdued, less brilliant than plain white. Use lots of white for a summery look. Use small amounts of white to soften a wintery palette or suggest snow.
Used with light or pastel tones, white is soft and Spring-like and helps to make the pastel palette more lively. White can make dark or light reds (Pinks), blues and greens look brighter, more prominent.

Coco Chanel changed the way women dressed and also introduced a new philosophy of fashion - women should dress for themselves and not their men, and true fashion comes from the streets, or it isn't fashion. She also emphasized the use of accessories. She was a powerful woman from a humble background in a class-conscious society and depended upon alliances with the wealthy to get her where she needed to go.

There are some strange creatures everywhere in the world. I collected a couple of them of 'my' design world.
'Strangely' enough I LOVE them! Don't find them at all weird. :) Probably because I am one of those weirdos?! Sometimes it is hard even for me to understand myself.
Hope you like them too! ...Anyway, what is there not to like? :) XX
