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

Happy Sunday! 🙂

Hope you guys are having a good weekend so far and that you’re  spending it on the beach! 

For me -it was always all about the ocean and about the beach; Since I can remember I always wanted to live by the ocean and be able to look at it everyday. It was always all about the view, how gorgeous it was, how it made me feel and also about all the activities one could do at the beach. Therefore I was inspired to write this post after visiting few ocean view apartments within last few days.

 There’s nothing better than waking up and looking at the shimmering horizon. 

Sometimes you’re lucky enough to live by the water and enjoy the view everyday.

If not- there’s always a nautical decor that you can count on. You can incorporate it into your home and make it feel like you’re by the water.

I’m attaching few inspirational photos that may I hope you like.

4th of July inspiration

Hi,

4th of July is around the corner and for a lot of us Independence Day is one of our favorite holidays.

It’s hard not to get excited about  the BBQ’s on the beach, family time, hanging out with friends and of course the fireworks.

Since the 4th is still a couple days away, it’s the perfect time to get organized and creative, make home decorations, get groceries for all those red, white & blue treats and figure out what to wear.

Below we’re attaching a few photo inspirations for patriotic outfits, food to make and how to decorate your home etc. Even if  it’s using a red,white & blue tablecloth, a painted mason jar as a  utensil holder or even painting that old piece of furniture  red, white and blue, the possibilities are endless. Get creative this holiday and create the perfect background for all those selfies that we all know will end up on social media.

Stay safe, enjoy and…

Happy birthday America!!

Work space

 

 

Hi guys,

I know it’s been a while since the last post, sorry about that. I’ve been traveling a lot and had to focus on a few things upon my return.

Here’s a post about the work space. For me, it’s a very important part of the house; this is where I edit the photos, paint, write this blog and pay my bills. I find it very relaxing and inspiring to have this room just for me. I have my mood board here, my photo set up, my easel, and other inspirational things that I love.
All of us pay bills, do research, study, check the news, and so many other things, on our computers. Some of you have your businesses or studios at home. Why not have our own personal space and design it in a way that inspires us. The more pleasant the space is, the more productive you’ll be. That’s a fact.
I hope this post inspires you to make your space more -You-.

Europe.

Hello darlings,

I’m writing to you from beautiful and snowy Aspen, Colorado.

After a tight travel schedule (Poland-Moscow-NY-Aspen), I’m finally here for a few days to relax and do a little bit of snowboarding.
Last week I went to Europe to visit my family in Poland. I also visited one of the most beautiful cities not only in  Poland, but all of Europe—Wrocław. That city doesn’t get enough credit—it’s simply beautiful and colorful.
To stroll around the city, I wore a weather appropriate color of gray. It was raining and gloomy on the day that we were there.

Clothes; I’m recently obsessed with the color gray, which has so many hues to choose from, and looks good with any color.

I especially love the coat (thank you Sheinside!), which has a modern look to it—shorter sleeves and a moderately sized collar. It can be worn in many different ways; definitely a statement piece, and I was asked about it a few times.
P.S. How do you guys dress with your gray coats? Please share!
Xoxo Eva

Earth tones and texture

Hey there,

Here’s another post about the design.

Growing up around interior design, I got interested at a young age –which led me to enroll at NYID in New York. I’m constantly drawn to beautiful spaces and unique textures. Interior design magazines have a special place in my bedroom, and I’m always visiting home decor stores. I was inspired to share with you some of the amazing spaces designed by great designers and architects.

Each of these rooms below is a reflection of what I love and what inspires me.

When you redesign your room, house or office, you can find inspirations in the most amazing places – -if you REALLY pay attention to detail.

The photographs below show you how you can think with innovation  when remodeling your space.

Mix textures and materials like cement floor, wood and metal – be original, and let the space reflect your character and personality, because the truth is that you relax and work better in a space that’s your “own” space.

Try NOT to go to the store and choose something just because it physically fits in that empty corner or just because it’s on sale. Make sure that whatever you get works with and within the space. Sometimes it’s better to wait for that perfect item, rather then get something just beacuse it’s on sale or because you think it will fit.

Hope this inspired you a little bit. Happy redesigning!

What’s stopping you?

Hello,

Happy New Year! Many of us have  resolutions to keep up with. The first week of the new year is behind us. How are you doing with your resolutions? Did you give up already(we hope not) or are you working on them(hope so)?

The truth is, each year we want to change something for the better.

We want to get better at something.
We want to work out more to get that dream body.

We want to change the job to be happier.

We want to travel.

We want a better relationship.

We want to start something .. and actually finish it. The list goes on and on.

We set many goals for ourselves.

After doing some research about how to actually stick with your resolutions, we realized that you must visualize  them.

What do we mean by that?  Make a mood board by your desk; print and cut the things that u want or the things that inspire you. All of us want certain things, all of us dream. If you see those things in front of you each and every day, you’re more likely to remain committed.

We chose a few meaningful pictures that will also look very cute at your desk.

We hope that you stick with your resolutions, and we hope that the best version of you comes to life this year. After all, what’s stopping you?

Don’t let anyone ever dull your sparkle.
