my kitchen project

My ongoing kitchen project. Storage with drawers. Doesn't look very impressive but imagine it in nice colour, down-light and pickle jars :D

beautiful fabrics and wallpapers

I've just discovered beautiful wallpapers from Graham Sanderson. I love all Elitis products and treated myself to their Glass Nacres series in lightest shade. I plan to use it in my kitchen instead of mosaic tiles. It seems like a good idea, especially because it will be in areas not exposed to high humidity or heat. My new kitchen will be very plain and ascetic and following Coco Channel advice I decided to take off  it any unnecessary decorations. So that pearled wallpaper will be like little pearl necklace for my kitchen. I just hope it will turn out OK. DIY can kill many good ideas ;)

cold'n'lovely

Many people find warm colours welcoming and comforting. Cold whites, green and blues remeber them of hospitals. I love warm colours too, but in other people houses. In my own though I'm bored with them within a week and end up being iritated all the time. There is something calming and airy in cold colours. They don't suffocate me, they leave me space to breath and relax.

milagros

I'm finding them beautiful, they are reminding me somehow of Romeo and Juliet with Leonardo DiCaprio. If you not lucky enough to find original ones there is source for milagros in UK: www.coxandcox.co.uk

rug love

                                                                 Beautiful rugs: 






First and second image:   www.designersguild.com from 795 GBP
Third and fourth:                 www.designersguild.com 550 GBP
Fifth:                                    www.anthropologie.eu from 248 GBP


They all very different but I adore all of them. The Conure rug (Anthropologie) has been my dream rug for ages. I know it is a bit kitschy, but on the other hand it is also simply beautiful.
Have a lovely day peeps!

where I live

My mother and me, this summer (don't be fooled by the weather).
Happy times

todays motto

my sofa

hi everyone
I want to introduce you all to my lovely 100 (ish) years old couch.
One of my many crazy and impulsive purchases.
I love this piece of furniture. It is the most comfortable couch I've ever seen. It has high back, wings and deep seat to slouch comfortably - the essentials for every couch potato like me.
Unfortunately it's in very bad condition. I've bought it but I wasn't aware of re upholstery price. After few expertises I've been given the price of 1600 - 1800 pounds, and I had to pass on this one.
Now my only option is reupholster it myself and I decided I will give it a try.
So wish me luck
I will keep you posted
