With all that snow outside my windows I’ve felt like sharing with you this very girly, cosy home I’ve spotted at decor8. I love the way the white colour is ruling all over the place. Feminine accents in the form of colours, patterns and textures as well as personal items hanging here and there add up to a thought-through interior that many of us out there would like to trade for…. I would certainly 😉
I’m sure my mom would call the following corner of the house for clutter…with all the shoes on display, the necklaces and summer party items hanging on the chair. She would certainly tidy this place up immediately…but mom girls just love things that often have no exact function and as, you’d say, simply gather dust. Don’t we?

I’ve been recently asked by one of my former colleagues who spotted my previous post on space saving hallways systems, where to find the Vanpey chest. I’ve updated that post with a link to the shop…my colleague’s question inspired me though to post on other interesting minimalist solutions – perfect for small hallways and bathrooms.
Piegato collection consists of a magnetic shelve designed by Matthias Ries. It is a laser-cut and powder-coated sheet of steel with perforations to fold shelves depending on your needs. The other Piegato solution features a chalkboard for small notes and reminders. Both of them can be folded back and closed so they don’t occupy more space than a large wall picture.
Both Piegatos can be purchased here: www.serafini.de
Can contrasts really meet and function together?
Is the concept of yin and yang truly possible?
Well, at least as it comes to design and bringing the ultra modern and the antique together – an old and a minimalist cabinet – result in a harmonious piece of storage furniture. In today’s busy world, I guess, we all need retrospective elements – memories from the past – to make sure we stay in balance.

I always get fascinated when I spot new wardrobe items from Sonia Rykiel. She surprises with quite a striking choice and combination of colours and fabrics.
This hard-working lady decided to expand the product portfolio of her fashion empire that now includes also a home collection of pillows, towels, bed linen, fabrics and carpets. Indulge yourself with photos of luxurious haute intérieur. 😉
Tags: Assassination of John F. Kennedy, Lady D, Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow, Shell
Each of the below interiors is in its special way unique, unusual or even awkward.
The first one shows a coffee table with a display window presenting the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
An outdoor space with a chair made from metal Shell barrels.
The headrest made from the wing of a smaller aeroplane.
…I guess the following one does not require any comments at all 😉
This monstrous door is a copy of the door in the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow. They’re made of wood and only covered with metal.
Walls in this room are covered with black blackboard painting. The table is again made from the wing of an aeroplane from the 2nd World War. The chair belonged once to a military dentist.
The owner of the last interior has a peculiar interest in ‘political’ art.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this short tour through art-gallery-like interiors and objects… 🙂
Tags: Almi Decor, Coffee Heaven, Colonial style
Every time I visit my friends and family in Warsaw I cannot help but visit the Almi Decor chain of shops. They’re experts at cosy, warm colonial inspired interior design speaking directly to your senses. A walk through the store is like a journey in time and cultures, accompanied by a strong smell of strong freshly brewed coffee, ground vanilla fruit and imported Whiskey ;).
…and at the back end of each Almi Decor store there’s a whole section with vibrant and sensual accessories like pillows, curtains and wallpapers.
