Blanket Scarf

It’s a perfect time of the year to get a plaid scarf. Use it as a blanket on a cozy day at home or as a scarf over turtleneck or leather jacket to keep you warm and stylish. It makes a great travel companion and became a staple in my wardrobe.

Magic of Coffee

Morning is my favorite time of the day, and a weekend morning especially. I like that my mind is still clear and uncluttered from the busyness and tasks on the day. I like to make myself a nice cup of coffee and sit with the coffee book or just sit without doing anything else but simply enjoying the coffee. What I find magical in drinking coffee in the morning is that it brings me to a present moment.  What I also found over the years is that I like to drink if out of “my” cup. Over the years we all collect cups and mugs that someone gifts us or it’s part of some tea set.  If you don’t have your own cup, I suggest you get one. Whether it’s monogram one or it has an inspiring message written on it or just in the color or style that reflects you. This morning ritual of drinking coffee from your own cup will make it that much more magical. Enjoy! Happy Sunday!

Monochrome Living Room

Welcome to my 50 Shades of Grey living room 🙂 I kept it monochrome in one color, but played with different textures such as velvet and linen materials, as well as mirrored and acrylic accents. My favorite thing about my apartment is that all walls are covered by handmade wallcovering from It gives it a warm chic look and it is also very practical since they are washable.

Pajama day

Merry Christmas to All! It’s incredibly special to be able to spend this day with my family (even though my kids woke me up at 5am to open the gifts :)) I hope Santa was good to all of you and you get to spend your day in pajamas like we do in our family.

PS I gave my kids these pajamas for Christmas and they loved them because they glow in the dark and are super soft.

Patio Decor

Summer is here! Whether you plan to spend your lazy summer days sunbathing on your deck or indulge in entertaining a crowd, all you need for your patio decor is a great sectional. I really like this weather resistant sectional that offers generous seating and thick cushions provide plenty of support and are designed to hold up to the outdoor elements. Matching coffee table features a tempered glass top. The color combination for me is always black and white. All decor accessories -vases, green round bushes, candle holders are from Home Goods (love that store!)
