California- Visual diary

I recently went to California on a few day trip. I’ve been to Cali multiple times, yet I never had a chance to explore Venice Beach and Santa Monica.

Once we got there, I got into my comfy clothes and went to explore.

I couldn’t believe how colorful that area was. Almost every house that I passed had Roses growing in the front and  bougainvilleas in the back …or vice versa.

Below are the photos from my trip.

Enjoy!

Grand Canyon

Hi,

Traveling and visiting new places has always been one of my favorite things to do. I’m lucky enough that I have a job that let’s me travel and see those “dream” destinations.

The Grand Canyon was on my bucket list for as long as I can remember, so I was incredibly happy to finally go and see it. It’s one of the 7 natural wonders of the world and very few people are lucky enough to be able to see it. I’m grateful that I was one of them..and I’m grateful especially for the way I saw it, from the Helicopter.

In Nevada we ended up staying at the beautiful JW Marriott spa and resort which is located very close to the Red Rock National Park (another beautiful place which I visited on my previous trip there, check it out here)

At first we wanted to do a little road trip to the Canyon, but seeing it from the birds view seemed like a much better idea, plus being able to land on the bottom of it seemed like a one of a kind experience. Therefore we ended up taking a Helicopter tour.

It was a 2 hr trip with lunch included. We flew to the bottom of the canyon and had sandwiches and champagne (what?!)

It was as cool as it sounds and the views were spectacular!

Hi!

Finally, my photos from  Nevada.

Red Rock National Park and Las Vegas were on my bucket list for the longest time. I was finally able to check them off the list. So excited about that!

We spent 3 full days exploring the beauty of Nevada. We went for a long hike at the red Rock Park during the sunrise, which was absolutely amazing. In the evenings we explored downtown Las Vegas.

On one of the days we went to check out the Hoover Dam. We ended up taking a helicopter ride above the Dam- incredible!! Definitly a “must go ” place if you’re planning on going to Vegas, and It’s only an hour drive!

This trip was one of the coolest and most colorful trips I’ve taken. Take a look at what I’m talking about

Interior Design- Textures

Hey there,

First of all thanks so much for reading our blog, it means the world to us that we might inspire you even a little bit. We’re sorry we didn’t post anything in a while, we’ll try to post more frequently.

TEXTURES

Since I can remember interior design played a huge part in my life, I’ve been a big fan of mixing different finishes; wood & metal, velvet & leather, glass & salvaged wood, you name it- I love it.

In this post we’re not suggesting that you use all the high end materials and finishes you see in the pictures below. We want you to see how you can mix different textures and how well they work together. Sometimes when you need a change in your space, all you might have to do is to put a different rug on the floor, or put a textured wallpaper on just one wall. The truth is that you can create a beautiful space using just one color, as long as you use different hues and textures. Use your creativity, the possibilities are endless
