Pink has become a recurring theme here on the blog, so I think it won’t come as a surprise that when I spotted this space on pinterest, my heart skipped a beat. Such lovely combination of pink, marble and brass (although my own preference is still brushed brass) . This feminine space is the ensuite bathroom of Australian model & TV presenter Rebecca Judd, designed in cooperation with Aimee Tarulli. Turns out the marble is actually a porcelain slab but it works equally well, doesn’t it? (And it’s supposedly easier to take care of.) I think the brass corners are my favorite little detail here.
When we first moved in, I really wanted to create a clean white bedroom, but before it really got “finished” I started getting different ideas and impulses. Even though our room is tiiiiiny, I was been craving a bit more colour. So then I did a restyling of my bedroom with Dille & Kamille, and you saw a glimpse of my (then) brand new DIY bedframe.
Like I mentioned before, our room is quite small and I felt like no bedframe ever could fit in here. Well, our old one did (pictures of the bed in our former bedroom over here) but then we got a bigger mattress and we sorta did the whole mattress on the floor thing for a while. But then I realized I’m a grown up and didn’t want that anymore. Apart from the fact that we have the tiny room, I found most frames ugly and quite expensive, so after a lot of back and forth, I decided I was going to build my own.
Ispotted 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.
Happy 2017 friends! The past weeks have been filled with a loooot of holiday festivities (we had the last party this weekend) a short trip to The Hague (some pictures on my instagram @patriciagoijens) and a lot of decluttering, organizing and home improving.
If you read this blog every now and then it will come as no surprise that I absolutely love green walls. I painted my hallway in a beautiful shade of emerald and I haven’t regretted it one bit. I’ve been seeing more and more images with moody green walls and rounded up some of my favorite inspiration. Not sure if you want to use such a bold colour? These rooms may push you over the edge!
Hi 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!
Hi 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.
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.
