A Beautiful London home with Pink Hues via No Glitter No Glory

I

spotted these images last summer when this home appeared on A cup of Jo and instantly fell in love, but recently I bumped into them on pinterest again and they are so good I just had to share. I feel the heart and soul of this home is definitely the gorgeous kitchen, which is no surprise when you know this is the home of writer, cook and foodblogger Skye McAlpine.

Have a look at this lovely apartment with perfect imperfections, and read all about the home here.

i guys! Today I’ve teamed up with Swarovski to share my favorite hosting tips with you to make your guests feel extra welcome when entertaining in your home. There are a few tricks I’ve picked up over the years that I’ve found make people relax and feel at ease from the moment they walk trough the door. It’s always hit and miss when you’re working with tricky timings and juggling the cooking, decorating and entertaining, but let’s call this an ultimate checklist for setting your get together up for success!

As I’ve been getting more and more into photography I absolutely loved styling and shooting Swarovski’s playful seasonal home collection. The crystal trinkets capture the light so beautifully and are nothing short from mesmerizing. I absolutely love the result and I hope you do too! And at the end of the post there is a giveaway involved, so stay tuned!

i guys! Are you getting into the holiday spirit yet? I’ve been working on a few Christmas related assignments, so I’ve been feeling very Christmassy since the beginning of december, even though I didn’t get the chance to put up my tree yet until this weekend! I also haven’t had the time to go Christmas shopping, but that’s less of a problem since I don’t really like crowds and as an avid online shopper I find it so much more efficient to click together what I want/need and have it delivered.

DIY Easy Reupholstered Chairs

By 0 0

DIY Easy reupholstered chairs Once upon a time I bought a set of thrifted chairs. I really liked the shape but disliked the color, but thought that I could do something about that one day. As always, I considered just painting the surface, but a few clawing cat paws later painting the faux leather was no longer an option.

Finding the right fabric was a bigger challenge than expected, but when I was over at Dille & Kamille for my bedroom restyling, I discovered the perfect shade of pink, in a table cloth! As their table cloths are made from thick cotton, I quickly realized this would definitely work. Just over €20 well spent to give my vintage chairs a modern look.

ou guys, big news! Last thursday I was in London to attend the Amara Interior Blog awards, and I am so very proud and honored to say I won in my category “Best European Interiors Blog”. I was nominated alongside My Scandinavian Home, Gucki, Minoop and fellow Belgian Greet from Belgian Pearls who I’ve gotten to know because of the awards (Thanks Amara!). I think I can’t quite believe it still, because October has been a bit of a whirlwind for me and somehow this all happened in a big haze.

Home Renovation: Bedroom Reveal + 5 tips to make your bedroom fall ready

H

i guys, it’s been super busy over here, so I’m happy I have the chance to drop in for a lengthier post on the home renovation front, one that’s alllll about our bedroom in collaboration with Dille & Kamille!

If you follow me on instagram you’ve maybe seen that I’ve spent 3 days in Amsterdam with W hotels (more on that later). Later this month I’ll be going to London, France and maybe even Milan. I’ve been working on and planning some really lovely projects so definitely exciting times over here.

Home Renovation: Bedroom Reveal + 5 tips to make your bedroom fall ready

Back to the bedroom! I’ve teamed up with Dille & Kamille for a complete restyling of our tiny but cozy bedroom. As you maybe remember from this post, I initially wanted to create an all white space, but i quickly got a bit bored and wanted more colour so I decided to change things up. The new plan was to create more harmony with the pink closet, because you see the room from our bedroom. The first step was building my own bed (DIY to come) this mini makeover of my vanity, and then I reupholstered a set of vintage chairs with a dusty pink fabric that matches the closet walls perfectly (also coming up). You may remember the “headboard” as this DIY project I did two years ago. Dille & Kamille provided me with the finishing touches and voila, here we are! A more grown up bedroom that no longer has just a mattress  on the floor, and is completely fall ready!
