showcase - diy

I really liked this creative DIY solution of Gabriela Hansen on
 how to make a simple and stylish showcase with just a few requirements
and it's just perfect as a starting point to create 
small still lifes on your table or desk

Gabriela is a graduated student of the School of Architecture in Aarhus 
 on her blog she shares her creative diy ideas - that can be done by 
everyone as she describes -  but where she also shares
 her creative work and her inspiration ideas

just beautiful and simple...

outdoor ideas II

like I said last week I really love this time of the year
when we see all these great outdoor ideas in the magazines and in the blogosphere

My personal taste and choice is to keep it very simple
and to create an inviting atmosphere (see here) 
In my garden you will find wood, black pottery, natural tones,
soft cushions in greyshades and a lot of green ofcourse 
I guess that's why I was attracted by the creative ideas
of Pella Hedeby found at the livet Hemma site 
with some great simple details and an important and inspiring 
role for the glass greenhouse cabinet
 Hindo by IKEA and a quick but very stylish DIY idea...

the natural colours and soft tones,

Inspired again by the great work of stylist/blogger

 and trying some things out  for upcoming projects

longing for August... #sinnerlig

A little while ago (here) I told you about my crush 
on the upcoming Sinnerlig collection
designed by Ilse Crawford (studio Ilse) for Ikea

The sneak preview pictures looked so promising...

This week Ikea has shared some new pressphotos and to be honest 
they made that I have lost my patience... 
I really can't wait to admire the beautiful used (natural) materials as cork, 
bamboo and glass at this collection that will be availble in Ikea stores from august 2015

In meantime we can read all about concious living and the product 
development on the Ikea Today site and dream about
 that amazing daybed in our backyards or homes!

"SINNERLIG is an upcoming collection designed by Ilse Crawford that explores the beauty and tactility of raw material. It celebrates the imperfections that arise during the production process.

Sinnerlig is designed to engage our senses and connect us to our homes."

room with a view

really like the way this new print 
- A look outside a winter window -
 gives the room a bit of perspective... 

already said it before many times but 
I'm always inspired by the very creative art work of
 Sarah van Peteghem  (designer and blogger at  coco lapine design )

 If only I could work here for one day...

Starting  this new week 
with this beautiful and very inviting workspace
seen at  last week...

I was attracted by the stylish desk and the whole set up
but there are many more other styling ideas to 
admire at this stunning and inspiring apartment for sale
To be honest...  I just loved it all!

see more here and have a happy new week!
