Magic carpet

With spring in full swing I bet a new (or vintage) carpet probably isn’t what comes to your mind right now. But lately I’ve been very very obsessed with these beauties. Your great grandfather would approve!

I would love to have one in our bedroom (it would match perfectly with our black walls and white floors). It’s a bit boho I guess. Pair it with a few cactuses in different sized jars et voila, a new look is born.

Ps. This Alexander Wang bag is also very welcome.

Do you like these old carpets or do you own one?



It’s all about Hay

Spring always feels like a clean slate. It’s a time clear your mind, start your spring cleaning (anyone else started yet?) and for the not so lucky people -like me- battle that nasty hayfever.
Speaking of Hay, a brand we probably all love, they do such a great job with these tray tables. Simplicity at it’s best!
With their versatile and sleek look they fit in every interior. Including mine.

I would accessorize them with some romantic candlesticks in copper, a few pretty books and -ofcourse- spring flowers.
Anyone else excited?

Soft coral everything

As you’ve probably noticed I love everything pastel these days (thank you spring).
But I have a long time favourite colour: coral. I just love anything coral, whether it is a good lipstick, bright nailpolish (I’m a complete nailpolish junkie, can’t live without it), or a bold summer dress, I’m down.

So when I came across this lovely cushion a few weeks ago at Ikea I couldn’t resist. It’s an instant mood lifter, score!

I wish you a fun weekend, hope the weather treats you well!

Nice to see you again

Hello sun,

It’s so nice of you to join us after such a long time.
How was your time abroad? I hope you’ve treated people on the other side of the world just as well.
Anyway, life looks much easier and happier when you’re around.
Are you planning on staying around for long? We sure do hope so! Because we love the long walks, the warmth on our skin and all the blossoming trees.
Good to have you back.



Chalk that chalk

I think I’ve bought this frame more than over a year ago for only three euros.
It had the most hideous embroidered fabric (think orange-yellow sunset with dark green fields) but I just liked the frame.

I wanted to turn it into a chalk board but it ended up in the back of our closet. That was until a few weeks ago. I was about to return it to the thriftstore when I decided to just try it out and it was really simple and quick to do. The chalk paint needs some time to dry though (me being all impatient) but it turned out quite fun I think!

I still have another large chalk board in my mind from Bloomingville but that one comes with a large pricetag as well;-)
So in the meantime this will do.

Have a lovely weekend!

Wednesday wishes

Wow, it’s been a long time since I posted my last wednesday wishes. But I’ve found some really cute stuff on the web that I had to share. Zara’s mini lookbook did a good job again (can they ever do wrong really?)
First of all I LOVE these dolls, and how about the repainted ladder for storage? Not to mention the super simple but oh so nice garland….

I think I need some extra time the upcoming weeks, because I have some serious crafting to do..

DIY storage jars

My ever growing collection of masking tape, stamps, twine and stickers needed a new home badly.
I cleaned out a few jars, removed the labels (bye bye pickles) and simply spray painted the cover in a copper colour.

I really like the the result and now I can actually see what I have in storage. Jars are so fun to reuse, the possibilities are endless!
I’ll keep them clean and simple for now, maybe I’ll put some tags on them later.

Have you ever reused jars?

Light as a feather

Since I quit my job to become a full time mommy last year (wich could be considered a full time job as well) I’ve been superduper crafty. My head is exploding with ideas to craft and create.
So last christmas (hello Wham) I’ve seen a lot of DIY’s with clay on pinterest. I liked the idea of making ornaments, except that I like to do things a little different. I literally woke up a few weeks ago with the idea to make a garland of feathers, dip dyed in black, dark pink and copper.
Said and done.

This was such an easy DIY and a lot of fun. I have lots of feathers left for other variations (think mint green, copper and bright pink).
Do you like the results?

I fancy everything pastel so these pompoms had to come home with me. Usually I buy lots of decorations because of the colour (recognizable?) but I never end up using them. But there is something that I love about these pompoms, they’re very festive and turn everyday into a little party :-) score!

Have a great week!

A trip to winter wonderland

As we speak we are on the road to experience some real winter (because we didn’t had any over here).
We’re going to hit the slopes, make long walks, ride the sleigh.. All with our little girl. It’s her first trip abroad (not that she’s aware yet, I’m the one that’s acting all excited) but I’m really looking forward to some quality time.

There are a few post scheduled for next week, so I’ll still be around;-)

See you soon!
