Wanderlust: cafes in Kraków

2016 has brought me to places that I dreamed of since childhood, like English country (albeit no heather covered hills – yet), places I should have visited long time ago, like Rome, and (twice!) place that can pull strings I did not know existed. After all those years…It is all in one home away from…

House tour

It is about time that I share a slightly bigger glimpse of our home on the blog. I might have a bit of an agenda hidden here. With looming bathroom renovation (salmon and green need to make way for new colors), it works miracles for motivation, to open the doors wide open, bring some flowers…

Australia: indoor/outdoor living

This past weekend reminded me that I still have not posted my favorites from Brisbane visit this summer.  I guess, I needed a cooler weather to truly capture the feel of the city that seems to have perfected all season indoor-outdoor living.  Where the doors are always open (or gone altogether), where you warm up…

Greenhouse plants

Late March days, especially this year, with its long winter, are days of transition. I have been buying seeds, but have not sewn any yet, as the soil is not warm (of defrosted for that matter!) enough. It is warm, then it is snowing, then it is warm again, before it freezes overnight. I was…

Kitchen Makeover

We had a beautiful winter light today. Mid February sun is already above neighbors’ house flooding the kitchen for hours. That called for two things: clean up and photos. I never posted the story of our kitchen makeover, waiting for it to be finished. I would call it 80% done…We still need art, more shelves…

Color story in blue – Navy NYC

While visiting NYC recently, I made sure to visit a place that I spotted on Instagram few times and intrigued me very much. I fell for the interiors, although judging by lovely breakfast we had and the online reviews, the place is wildly popular and would love to check out its lunch or dinner menu…

Wallpapers for country in the city

Few weeks back I came across a wallpaper that is a perfect mix of charming rustic, but not dated,  floral but not too cottage. Here is a gem of a wallpaper from Finland: Sugarplum Tree by Photowall. I searched out a few more that I would love to try out in our house, maybe in the…

Best of Danish lighting

Looking back at my (winning!) pinboard on Remodelista, The Great Danes, I stopped at a striking photo of a pendant light. Following the crumb trail I ended up at Lightyears. What caught my eye was a design by Cecilie Manz. But there were so many great designs I could not pick my favorite for this post….

Winter study in citrus and pink

Some colors are hard to part with. Take this pink an citrus – I made these sofa pillows a long time ago…let’s just say they moved with us from our previous home. I had every intention to change the color scheme, especially since the sunroom is the only place in the house that does not…

Backsplash tiles…finally

When the internet order arrived a couple of weeks ago there was a collective gasp, when opening the package. It has been a while since I ordered something online that arrived looking exactly like depicted. The colors were absolutely true and the sheen and texture totally fitting what I had in mind. I knew these were…
