...in Milan last week. :)
Of course it wasn't all about the flowers :) I visited the annual design exhibition/festival/fair - fenomenon. As always, it was so inspiring and fulfilling that I am still digesting all. This is a compilation about the latest colors of the design sector: coral, coral, coral and I almost forget: coral. Also light (vintage) blues and yellow in bold as well as in pastel version. I couldn't get enough of all those beautiful hues and tones!
Despite colors there were great surfaces, finishings, carpet-like installations. These are absolutely my favorites.
And if a designer cannot decide which Pantone color to choose... there is always the option of choosing ALL of them! :) I just Loooooove it!
P.S.: ...more to come! :) XX
My end of March top favorite items/designs/pieces/colors...
1. Pink-coral interior styling
2. A super-cool design by Beril Cicek
3. Current fashion beauties
4. Pin-up styled eyeliners
5. And some adorable iphone 4 cases
I know... it's a bit of a mix of things here... but what can I say... a lot of things on my mind. :) And yes... I got a new phone, so of course I had to search for a new phone case as well. Guess which one I have at the end!
P.S.: Some of the beauties I still could refer as 'wish list items'. ...So, what else left for me but to 'desire', 'believe'...and 'receive'.

Every spring I am so exited to see the fresh, new colors that outbursting us all over. Especially after the cold, dark and colorvise super-boring winter. This time, I am so hungry to see colors around me - strong, bold colors; or soft, pastel tones... doesn't matter as long as there are colors and not only black, grey and brown.
In the spring of 2012 my hunger is fulfilled with colors, that's for sure. :) Beautiful pastels - pinks, corals, mints, Tangerine Reds,... even neons are everywhere. And usually I obt for strong colors, somehow I am more fascinated by the soft pastel tones right now. I collected my (current) favorites here. Hope you like them!
P.S.: Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying no to strong, neon colors! On the contrary! ...Just wait, and see... :) XX

21 March 2012. :)
Although I thought it is today, I checked earlier and it was two days ago, when I started exactly 1 year ago writing Pink Flower Love. But who cares about 1-2 days? :)
I am celebrating my blog today. I still love it, every bit of it, love writing it, love reading it (sorry, but I do). And I love the fact that it is so much like me. The only place where I can truly be myself and honest.
So, I guess what I want to say is that I am so grateful to You, my beautiful blog (and of course to You my dear readers) and I wish a happy birthday and lots of years to come shining! XX
And to recall that first post... I cannot say it better than to remind you to:
/Imagine a new story for your life and start living it. by P.Coelho/
P.S.: I love You All

For me denim is something that is never-out-of my sight. It was and I'm sure, will be always an important part of my life, since I spent 8 years working for denim companies. I wear them, I designed them and I guess will love them for a long long time... :)
And to show you how diversal this fabric is, I created this post of some common and not-so-common use of it. *the wedding gown is for You Katya! :)
P.S.: As a first step towards loving denim - buy a good pair of jeans! :) This spring I suggest go for the ones with flare legs! XX

Although I don't like the idea of closing a bird in a birdcage, I love birdcages! The look of them, the shape, the message they carry... It is old, it is romantic, somehow feminine and full of meaning.
Nowadays we don't use birdcages for what people used them before. To keep a beautiful bird there and admire her colors and singing voice. We have birdcages to decorate. Our home, us, even we use them for street art installation. However you use it, it is always special for any circumstances and situations. Don't be affraid to pick yours! :)
P.S.: I just realized that I need to have a birdcage earring immediately!!! :) XX

One of my favorite online fashion store is Ruche. The clothes are amazing, vintage, feminine, unique and they create beautiful styling photos as well. These are my personal faves at the moment. :) Hope you like them too!
P.S.: These clothes take me back in time to the 1940's - 1950's :)

It is now getting to be usual that everybody is crazy for vintage. ...anything vintage, really. :) But what I realized a couple of months ago that vintage goes way beyond to the trends then just putting an old furniture from the flea market to our homes, or to buy some vintage clothes from the sixties.
There are obvious facts that in 2012/13 we look back in the time of our parents, grandparents for inspiration. We tend to love, use, wear the colors or those times. Even all the big design brands' latest collections show the beautiful vintage blue.
Two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to visit Maison & Objet in Paris, where I took some pictures, so you see as well that 'vintage blue' is everywhere.
It is such a beautiful color. Personally, I love it! As the color of a car, a color to wear or just to look at on our wall. Hope you like it too, or at least get some hint of it for later! :)
P.S.: Although no color can be as vintage as blue, look for other true vintage blues around you. Let me know what you find and who knows... there could come a new post out of it! :) XX

What can I say, my obsession with wallpapers in still going strong. In fact, I keep finding more and more beautiful wallpapers and other wall decoration ideas. When I would think, 'well, this is probably the best wallpaper I've ever seen', for sure the next day, comes across another, even more outstanding, wall covering idea.
And the coolest thing is to choose an outfit that goes with or blends in the wall covering paper. :)
P.S.: If you got inspired and want to get some of these beauties, you can definitely should check out the selection here. :)
