.Concrete Home interiors.

I am in a trendspotting mood again. This time I go for concrete. Some of you might think that concrete with its rough surface doesn't fit in a cosy home interior... well, convince yourself and  take a look at these examples I've picked out. Simply click on the pictures to get the image source.


Juicy Stripes Hello lovely folks,  I just want to wish you a cosy and healthy weekend! (That' all.) OKAY... no...

Wanna doodle and stay cosy?

Doodle Frames Title Oh you don't know what doodling means? Of course you know! Have you never been proud of your amaaaaaaamazing drawings that came out after a 2-hours phone call? Or when you have to call an administrative officer and you're forced to wait on hold - during 5, 10, 15, 20 or even 30 minutes (Exaggerating? No!) It's difficult to stay cosy then, right? Especially when you spend 15 minutes listening to awful hold music that sounds like an early phonograph. So... printed letters get a face, hair, legs... or beautiful decorative borders appear around the edge of a paper...or flowers grow all over your magazine...or any kind of scribble that seem to make no sense at all..or or or... Doodles may be patterns, shapes, crazy lines. They may be complex or childish. Generally, doodles are produced in an idle moment. I think doodling helps relieve boredom. While doodling you can relax and stay focused, don't you think? Okay, let's switch to the main part of this post.

You'll need a perfect vase (in grey) Springtime = Flowertime Today is about SPRING. Explore my new mood board with adorable vases in --> GREY <---. Disappointed about the color choice? You probably think that grey isn't a fresh "spring color" and maybe you are even right...

[Hello Black Coffee Monday]

Black. White. A pinch of Beige. Another Beige… I think everyday life is an inexhaustible source of color inspiration. That’s why I thought about sharing a color board. Once a week. Actually I wanted to share this one already on Saturday. (Hrrrrrr I didn’t manage, but..oh.. in return I have new stuff to offer very very soon!)For now, starting with a Black Coffee on Monday isn’t that bad,is it?

Quick DiY | art print | My last post was about framing memories (or quotes) aaaaand I promised you an alternative tutorial, do you remember? (don't say you don't remember) So today, my post will be more of a mini-tutorial. (mini = mini) I don't want to beat around the bush. I wrote QUICK...

[Frame your memories]

Frames_Intro Oui Oui.. I am still in a typography mood!(in my trend spotting [Framed Quotes] I already gathered some inspirations...have a look). Oh and before I forget...Be careful! Typo-mood could be contagious...

Typography mood + retrospection of funny moments = framed memories.

If you are interested in a more minimalistic project (contrary to the wall project ), then you should have a look at this mini tutorial. You don’t remember any funny (or not) quotes from your past? When you were a little girl or boy? Let me give you a personal example: I remember my parents always gave me this really FRUSTRATING answer when I (again) wanted to keep up with the Joneses.  „Ech WËLL dat…awer“ (<— Luxembourgish language). So their LEGENDARY answer was always like this one: „Déi Wëll laafen am Bësch“. Yeah. Mind-blowing answer, isn’t it? Do you remember getting this answer, too ? Hm. I’m not sure if I could translate this sentence in English (Maybe there is someone who has any translation idea?) Okay, so here you have some cosy homework for today.

TREND SPOTTING |Framed Quotes|

While looking into current (+ upcoming) trends, there actually is one particular trend I’ve seen quite a lot: Framed Quotes it or hate it. I have no doubt that the trend of hanging framed quotes still exists! BUT. I’m (still) not convinced about this printed art trend, because I really really really found a lot of cheesy stuff, too.  Nevertheless I’ve picked a few examples out, which are quite charming.
