Best of New York... definitely - Art Deco
An era in architecture and interior design that you cannot pass by without falling in love with it! ...at least this is how it happened with me. :)
NY, wait up, because for sure I'll be back! XX

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! :)

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?

...that one day, I am working for myself... and that I work as a designer. Last week together with my collegue (and of course in the great company of many friends and professionals) we opened our design studio - BoglarkaVera.
I can't describe my feelings right now... :) I am so happy that it hurts, and it gets me worried, because of the fear of loosing it one day. But I try not to think like that, just enjoying every second of it! :)
We've been asked by some journalist that where did we get the strenght and the courage to open a studio, especially now, when nothing is easy. And our answer couldn't be more simple. Because we...
So, we encourage you as well, don't be affraid to dream big! If you dare to dream big, you have the chance to get big!
And to close this post (that is so special for me, since I was waiting my studio opening for so long), I give you our motto:
'Imagine a new story for your life, and start living it'

I am so happy that we have another guest post here in Pink Flower Love. This post was created by Susi, from the respected interior design site - Design Shuffle, that is a social networking site for interior designers, architects, design professionals and enthusiasts who just love interior design. Susi was so kind to create for us a beautiful and very interesting post.
"Sadly, it is the end of peony season; those gorgeous, heady blooms that burst from their green stems this time of year. Feeling nostalgic already we were inspired to write our Dress + Decor guest post as a tribute to this glorious flower. Ranging from pure white with hints of pink to deep magenta, the peony is feminine and glamorous like a beautiful couture dress or a well-executed interior design idea.
The feathers on the bride's dress are gorgeous! Designed by Windy Chandra, the layered skirt makes us think of all those beautiful petals.
Palest blush color in an Edwardian inspired dress is lovely. Adore the high collar.
Peonies are the most sensual flowers. We adore them and know many of you do too. We wish they lasted longer in the garden.
Pantone named Silver Peony one of the top ten colors for Spring 2011 fashion. It's a delicate pinkish silver color that would look lovely on walls as well as waists.
Peony watercolor by Alphonse Mucha would make an incredible wallpaper or fabric. We'd love it behind the headboard in a bedroom or a powder room with a delicate pink ceiling. Peonies inspire many decorating ideas.
Love the dramatic dark background against the pale and deep pink peonies in this wallpaper. Inspired by the Chinese interpretation of the peony, which means riches and honor in Chinese art.
Capturing the range of pale pinks and whites found in our favorite peonies, this bedroom is both feminine and delicate.
Spots of deep peony pink against pale green or cream makes us as happy as the Festivus Maximus peony.
We hope you enjoyed these images. We'll be picking the last of our peonies from the garden and wishing they'd last a little longer. And thinking about where we can hang a peony patterned wallpaper or add a touch of peony print fabric.

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'

A Scottish designer who creates beautiful handmade printed fabrics for home decoration under her own brand - BluebellGray.
Influenced by a love of colour and all things floral, the designs are something unique and special, each design is painted by hand.
I love her designs, they are full with energy, life and yet they are sooooo girlie! :) You have to be brave to use these kind of prints in an interior.
As Fiona says ‘it’s ok when things don’t match, if you love it- go with it!’ The designs are aimed at people looking for something unique and individual for their home, an antidote to mass production. Definitely not for everybody. But for sure, who ever has them, can't live without them anymore!
I hope the fabrics will be available soon in our studio. :)

...when we are outside all night long. We organize open-air dinners, barbecues, birhday parties, weddings, basically we (try to) do everything outside. We love to feel the sun, the wind, see the sunset or the sunrise, dine under the stars... Why? There is no explanation, it is just how it is. And it is perfect like this.
And of course designing the table settings of these open-air events is so much fun! The only rule is that there are NO rules when it comes to styling. The more creative you are the better!
This is how we (would) do it: Hope you like them! XX
Have a beautiful 'open-air' weekend! :)
