subtle ways to polish your decor


This is a guest post brought to you by Eva Stephen. Thank you Eva and WELCOME!

“Following on the heels of the fashion catwalk, interior design has become more intimate and personal. No longer must everyone follow the same narrow path, using an identical and limited colour palette and choosing only one type of fabric. Rather, trends now allow for individual tastes to be satisfied, the only criteria being that the various parts of the interior décor add up to an elegant, interesting and comfortable whole.


big ideas for small spaces


Paint at least a stripe in chalkboard paint. It looks interesting, doesn’t take up any space and you can always use it for recipes (like in the example), shopping or to do lists, and for occupying your kids in time of need…



colourful accents on black and white

Here I am with another amazing home tour belonging to an architect and artist Anne Boysen Lorenzen. She has turned this house into a creative experimental station with design and art in bright colours on black and white background. I like the mid century modern flair and artistic approach to interior design.

soften rough brick wall with white

If you have or want brick walls in your home, consider making them into a design statement. The warm, natural look and rough texture of exposed brick contrasts contemporary white and extra soft  furnishings beautifully. I would especially suggest this approach to people who put too many wrought iron or dark wood furniture into houses with exposed brick. Yeah, you rich people around Montenegro, did you copy this?


surrounded by nature...

A charming patio filled with flowers and lovely plants can be a warm weather getaway, right in your backyard. Create a patio you can enjoy by adding comfortable furniture suiting your needs, bright coloured cushions, candle holders and vases, and even a few layered area rugs. I like outdoors cared with love, making accent on cozy and colourful.
