new years’ wishlist

new years wishlist

1.I need and want the Truth No.3 in Black by Jana Orsolic. The quote is truly inspirational, and I want it next to the Truth No.1 in white box I already have

2. Earrings are my favorite accessories, especially  if they are long, colorful and funky like these feather earrings

3. I’m all for blue or navy now, don’t know what got into me, and this blue leather tote would go perfectly with my colorful and patterned wardrobe.

4. It’s always good to have translucent furniture in small apartments, and this acrylic side table is my choice for tight space and kid-friendly environment

5. The perfect sofa! Beautiful line… just as right size for apartment… neutral color with bright buttons… looks great just standing alone, with or without decorative pillows… That’s what I need and want badly.

Don’t you think I’m modest? 

Wish you all

Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year

with a job and regular paychecks…

roof over your head…

food on the table…

peace of your soul and smile on your face

SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!!

kitchen makeover ** preobrazba kuhinje

At first it was blend and ordinary. It could be pretty with a bit of styling, but the best solution is total makeover. The layout is almost the same, except that niche is now filled with combination of white high cabinets and apple green wall cabinets mounted below the ceiling. Illuminated space in between is perfect for cookbooks and beautiful cookware. My favorite part is that breakfast bar on scrollable cabinets. So multifunctional! It can be worktop or eating area, it’s movable and it has plenty of storage – fantastic! Things that are used everyday are out on the open shelf, and there are also lovely stackable stools for additional seating or to help in reaching for high places. I find this kitchen clever and pretty, don’t you?

traditional Christmas tree

It’s finally time to exaggerate with home decorations. Candles, Christmas lights, ornaments, paper chains, wreaths, stars… glitter is everywhere and I can’t think of a person who doesn’t like that atmosphere. Here’s some inspiration for real Christmas tree, because nothing is more festive than it’s smell in combination with colurful ornaments and cinnamon cookies. Feast your eyes

bohemian bright home

What to say I haven’t said before? Don’t want to repeat myself. Everyone knows my fondness for quirky interiors, bursting with colour and personality. you just have to be that person to pull this bohemian look out. I wish I could be this brave…

Šta da kažem a da se ne ponavljam? I ptice na grani znaju koliko volim neobične enterijere, koji pršte od boja I pečata ličnosti koje žive u njima. Jer prosto, da bi se postigao ovako dobar I skladan boemski enterijer, morate biti takva osoba u svakom segmentu. Ja priznajem da se još uvijek bojim ovolike hrabrosti I eksperimentisanja. Malo fali da sve to eksplodira iz mene…fali mi podsticaj. Taman toliki da se ukućani ne protive novim, naizgled čudnim idejama. ah, valjda će I to biti…

perfect home no. 32 ** savršen dom br. 32

Just as big for a small family, this apartment had me with its colection of different credenzas and wall cupboards. Colourful picture gallery and accessories makes this home inviting and attractive, thanks to dashing gray and crisp white.
***
Nije baš tako mali, čak je i prostran dovoljno za porodicu, ali ono što je meni vrlo zanimljivo je način kako je obezbjeđeno dovoljno prostora za sve stvari kroz raznovrsne komodice i zidne ormariće. Cjelokupan prostor ne bi bio ovoliko privlačan i gosotljubiv da nije grafika i slika koje ga ispunjavaju, unoseći kolorit u osnovnu paletu neutralne bijele i sive.

wishing me happy 30th birthday...

Taking this (probably whole) week off because of my birthday. It's a big thing... all of a sudden I realized I'm 30! Need some time to breathe.
I am not where I thought I'll be, but wouldn't change it if I could...really. Still, let me panic a little,trying to figure out ways to speed up my wishes come true... Wish me luck :)
30th birthday

Vjerovatno cijelu sedmicu ću biti off zbog rođendana koji mi je odjednom postao velika stvar...jer sam valjda shvatila da imam 30 godina. Ček ... ček da prodišem....
Ne, nemam problem sa brojkama, starenjem (odrastanjem) niti odgovornošću, samo me lupila po glavi predstava koju sam nekada imala o ljudima od 30 godina. Nemam niti jednu vrlinu niti dostignuće koje bi zrelo odraslo biće trebalo da ima. Paničarim upravo. Nisam tamo gdje sam prije 10god vjerovala da ću biti, mada ovo gdje sam, ne bih ipak mijenjala. Samo ubrzano razmišljam na čemu kod sebe poraditi. Ako sam do juče i mogla proći kao "mala"...više definitivno ne mogu. Moram se uozbiljiti i u svom životu odlučnije postaviti stvari na svoje mjesto. Potrebni su mi principi koje sam zapostavila, unutrašnji polet i mnogo samopouzdanja. Držite mi fige :)

Balkan breeze Charming Belgrade apartment ** šarmantan beogradski stan

***(the post is too long for english and serbian version, so please use google translator to fully enjoy the interview and home tour) ***

Dosta je prošlo od poslednje Balkan breeze reportaže, ali je vrijedilo čekati. Ovaj put predstavljam stan inspirisan Amsterdamom i skandinavskim stilom koji je i na našim prostorima jednako popularan, upravo zbog života u malim stanovima.
Dragana, vlasnica stana, je od onih osoba s kojima bih odmah sutra voljela piti kafu i razglabati o mnogočemu. Iako smo se čule samo preko mejlova, djeluje mi tako srdačno i prijatno. A njen lični blog inspiracije treba obavezno "prelistati". Evo šta je ona rekla o svom šarmantnom stanu:

Ime:   Dragana Lazović
lokacija i veličina stana:   Beograd, Voždovac, 51 m2

koji je tvoj stil i čime si se vodila pri uređenju i organizovanju ovog stana: Ja već imam dosta iskustva u uređenju prostora, iako mi to nije profesija. Moja porodična kuća je mnogo prostranija, opremljena nameštajem od drveta u prirodnoj boji. Sad sam se suočila sa daleko manjim prostorom, a imala sam želju i da probam nešto sasvim drugačije. Inače volim nameštaj ravnih, čistih linija. Pošto sam nekako u to vreme posetila Amsterdam, tamo sam videla te bele cigle, i uopšte skandinavski stil koji mi je delovao prikladan za mali stan. Posto je to stan za dva momka, moje sinove, malo sam se uplašila da ne bude preženstven, pa sam njihovu sobu uradila nesto drugačije. Žute i plave boje.




 omiljeni dio: 
Sve mi je omiljeno na svoj način. Volim hodnik sa belim ciglama i belim podom, i crno belim tapetama. Manja sobica, koju moj muž i ja koristimo kad odemo u Beograd, posebno mi je draga zbog tih ogledala koja sam napravila od goblena kupovanih preko aukcijskog sajta i farbala u belo. Dnevnu sobu obožavam. U prostor od 18,5m2 smestila sam trpezarijski deo, malu kuhinju i dnevni deo sa TV-om i policama. I ni najmanje ne deluje natrpano. Dok sedite okrenuti ka televizoru, oči se odmaraju na zidu sa tirkiznim tapetama.

najveći izazov s kojim si se susrela:
Ceo stan je bio izazov. Bio je potpuno ruiniran. Po strukturi dvosoban, a ja sam htela dve odvojene spavaće sobe, pa sam kuhinju prebacila u dnevni boravak. Sarađivala sam sa dobrim majstorima, znala sam šta hoću, a imala sam i izvesno iskustvo. Sve je bilo izvodljivo.







šta kažu ukućani i prijatelji:
Svima se dopalo, naravno. Ko god je ušao bio je iznenadjen prostorom. Odaje utisak da je dosta veći. Zbog toga što je svetao, i što je hodnik neuobičajeno širok. I zbog  kombincije belih zidova sa ciglama i tapetama. Nameštaj je lagan, od bele iverice u visokom sjaju, sto za ručavanje je staklen i ne opterecuje prostor a i stolice su lagane. Kuhinja je rađena po meri od belog medijapana. Kupatilo deluje dosta luksuzno, iako nije mnogo koštalo. Takav efekat je postignut mozaik pločicama.

savjet za mali prostor ili za proces uređenja:  
Bitno je da znate sta želite, da sve nacrtate u pravilnim razmerama, da posle ne bi bilo iznenađenja, da ne bude pretrpano. Ja sam nameštaj sama crtala, a jedna radionica mi je sve pravila. Nameštaj po meri je možda najpametniji za male prostore. Meni je olakšavajuća okolnost bila i to što u stanu postoji ostava, koja je iskorišćena kao garderober, tako da je ostatak stana oslobođen ormana.
Lepo je ako ste vešti sa šivenjem, jer sam ja sama šila jastučiće i zavese. Internet je pun ideja, ima gomila sajtova na kojima možete naći nešto što vama odgovara.





šta bi uradila drugačije:
hmmmm, mislim da ne bih nista, hahahahaahaa. Već godinu smo u tom stanu i svaki put kad uđem u njega osetim zadovoljstvo. Fali mi aspirator u kuhinji, tu sam omanula. Ali i to može lako da se doda i reši. U sledećem stanu bih možda umesto zidnih pločica u stanu stavila stakla u boji, mada su ove moje prelepe. Ne znam, imam jos hiljadu ideja. Ali nemam više stanova :D






Eto, nadam se da ste uživali u intervjuu i fotografijama za koje je zaslužan Duško Damjanović. Ako imate dodatnih pitanja, slobodno pitajte u komentarima

vibrant contemporary penthouse ** živopisan savremen stan

What a beautiful, happy, vibrant home. I can't decide on what I like more: jungle on the wall,  interesting chairs or colour palette.
Maurizio Goviannoni is the creator of this amazing 65sqm penthouse. He describes his work as a blend of cultures, with a bit of play and irony, creating a joyful and relaxing atmosphere.

most amazing small apartment ** najzanimljiviji mali stan

Can't describe how I am thrilled to find photos of this AMAZING and SO coool apartment! There are great design ideas for small spaces, especially if you're a renter. The owner is tv show producer and a blogger Janet Lee. This lady has style and experience in small space living without sacrificing stuff and colour. Although I love purified apartments, decorated minimally...this one screams my name. This style is much more me, and my aim is to create something similar at my home. Janet published a book Living in a nutshell several months ago, have to buy it as soon as possible. She's ultimately inspiring to me.

design board ** dizajn predlog

The designboard I made here is for my younger sister. She has a room in our family house. The room is already furnished, but not functional as it should be. There are two sofa beds, big armoire and one pretty big rectangular coffee table. Boring + it's taking too much of valuable floor space. She wants something more functional, according to her living style...place for relaxing, enjoying some quiet time, reading books, for yoga practising. She's inspired by Asian culture, especially Japanese, but also loves romantic French and Scandinavian functionality. I tried to combine the three, so my inspiration is this chevron pattern in black, taupe and blue palette, with lots of white, natural elements and contrasting rectangular and oval shapes. here's the design board:

modern family apartment in Warsaw ** moderan porodični stan u Varšavi

Great ideas, overall functionality, well used space, kid-friendly environment, positive vibrations with loads of vibrant colours...that's what I see in this Poland apartment. Measures approx 65sqm but it seems like a hundred. I bet my kids would be enormously happy in this place. And nothing would make me happy more :)

{small space} Belgrade studio ** {mali stan} Garsonjera u Beogradu

Studio apartment in center of Belgrade measures 28sqm and it's for rent. The space is very well used, and the colour palette is just enough dinamic as it should be. Looks smart and comfortable. My favourite features are the kitchen/dining island and the olive tree in the corner.

black on white ** crno na bijelo

Combination of these two "non-colours" is timeless, always trendy, versatile, adjustable, beautiful and stylish. Some inspiration the way I like this "palette"

home full of energy and colour ** dom pun boja i energije

This almost 70m2 odd shaped apartment was so neglected, that owners had to demolish everything, and start with a clean slate.
As it can be seen on the plan functionality was more important than tradition. They gained space with a gallery above the bathrooms, extra light and sights with the inner windows. All white makes the apartment look brighter and bigger, as well as shiny surfaces do. The coloured mood lighting makes the focal point and it was based on their own design, using glass of various colours and LEDs. 
 Stan u Budimpešti, veličine skoro 70 kvadratnih metara, bio je u veoma lošem stanju kada su ga sadašnji vlasnici ugledali. Ipak, uspjeli su da uoče potencijal. Vrlo neobičan oblik stana je bio izazov za organizovanje, ali je i nagovještavao zanimljiv rezultat. S obzirom da je originalno stan bio prilično mračan, vlasnici su odlučili ispuniti ga bjelinom i reflektujućim, sjajnim površinama, što je doprinijelo sada prozračnoj, svijetloj i prijatnoj atmosferi. Da bi izbjegli sterilnost, prostor su akcentovali jarkim bojama, pa sve odiše razigranošću i pozitivnom energijom.

{DIY idea} sandwich station ** {uradi sam} ćoše za pravljenje užine


 Ako svakodnevno pravite sendviče ili sličnu užinu, posebno djeci za školu, evo zanimljivog riješenja za sve alate pri ruci. Potrebna vam je samo jedna ladica koju ćete ofarbati po želji, ugraditi dva do tri štapa - za ubruse, foliju za umotavanje i eventualno peki papir. Pri dnu ladice, pričvrstite ploču od iverice na kojoj ste napravili tri otvora za salvete, kesice za užinu i kuhinjske gumice. Sa strane po želji možete postaviti plutanu tablu za dnevni ili sedmični meni, kao i kukicu za makaze i krpu. Kompletno uputstvo za rad i materijal na sajtu Curbly
