A modern Christmas

I love all things modern and white.  So when I came across this photo shoot from Sitting in a Tree , I was absolutely bowled over.  Without any traditional Christmas colors in sight ...no red , no green.
The pictures speak much louder than my words ever could.

Pressure Test

I enjoy writing and love blogging. I  blog about things that inspire me hoping in the process to inspire you as you decorate or inspire you to decorate your home. But I really want to improve my blog, write better content and  reach a larger audience.While searching for ways to improve my blogging technique , I just googled e-course + blog+ decor ( hoping to find a blogging e-course that would be more specific for home decor) and was truly surprised when I realized that there was a e-course being run by Holly Becker ( and friends) . Holly Becker's blog Decor8 was my inspiration for starting my own blog. For a week or two I did struggle to sign up wondering how I was going to manage my store, orders, social media work I took on and this but Hollys' blogging e-course was on my mind a lot ...so I decided to sign up. Hopefully I can keep up...keep your fingers crossed for me cos this is really a Boot camp for blogging and so far I love it.

This image is my little blogging nook. My living room...lol I generally sit here so I can keep an eye on baby as she plays, work and blog. What you are seeing is the neater version, usually there magazines cushion samples etc all over the place.

Inspiring DIY - Upholstered Ottoman

I love great DIY ideas and this is one of the loveliest. Meredith and Kevin of  Not So Newly Wed Mc Gees turned an old table into an upholstered ottoman.

For more on how they did it check out their blog...but here are some images of the transformation.

A home that tells small stories

Ines Colmorgen and AndrĂ© Wyst are two better halves, who found each other 7 years ago. Ines owns a children's store. AndrĂ© loves print and  works as an art director for three magazines that are about interiors, product design and illustration for children. When I came across the images of their apartment in Torstrasse, Berlin, I was immediately impressed by its unique decor. I was inspired by the way they had taken little bits and pieces and put them together to make their home shine with personality . They have balanced each other personalities in their decor by creating small vignettes that really show off who they are.
