An amazing peaceful retreat in Santuario de la Luz, Spain. Notice the various textures

in all the rooms, wool, stone, wood and organic pieces that come together to create

this stunning interior. As far as for the landscaping I'll let the photos

do the talking! Enjoy!

Chairs: What to Consider Before you Buy






As well as being a functional piece of furniture
for us to rest and relax in after a long day, 


a chair can also serve as an
important design statement for the home. If you are looking to 


purchase a new
chair for your living room then make sure you read this list of top tips to 


help you choose the perfect chair.




Gorgeous!





Such an amazing foyer, don't you think? It just caught my eye, so fresh

and serene and I had to share it. Love this wallpaper, the color of it the

pattern, and everything else!

Living room redo progress

 

Dear friends and readers, the previous days the artist-painter added the undercoat to the paneling of our living room.

010Oak paneling before the primer was added.

 

02Start of adding the first coat.

 

Even though this is only a primer, it has given the room a completely different look. Don’t you think so ?

01

Actually you can’t see that much of the timber anymore, but in one of the next steps, the painter will gently reveal the oak wood.

 

04

The panel moulding is much more accentuated than before, which I really love.

 

08

 

09

This is how our living room looks like today.

I can’t wait to see the painter adding the next layers !

 

07

Me, explaining how I would love to see the patina which has to be added next week.

We asked the painter to make a lot of patina samples but untill now, we haven’t made our choice ! This really is the hardest part !

To be continued…

Well well well... we've seen beautiful white Scandinavian interiors, Danish interiors,

Nordic interiors and now it's time to take a look at this unique white Greek house located

in Mani, southern Greece. The materials and construction are traditional to the area




Easter decoration


I hope you all have enjoyed the weekend!
I realized that there are only 2 weeks left till Easter and was thinking about some Easter decoration. Actually I have to admit that I am not a big fan of decorating the house with overdone Easter decoration. Only a few decorative touches will do.

This is a new Easter decoration idea I tried out this weekend. Simple and easy.
Easter decoration (1)Easter decoration at my coffee table. Picture by me
You only need a tree branch slice, an eggshell and one of your favorite flowers.
Easter decoration (4)Picture by me
You glue the eggshell onto the branch slice, put some water into the eggshell and add the flower.

That’s it !

The pictures here below show you some Easter decorations that spoke to me.
Enjoy!
