This is hands down the most beautifully decorated event we have ever seen. The whole feeling of it pulls us in as if we were there. The light, pop out colors against the green of the woods creates a contrast in harmony. The lighting strewn across the branches makes it seem like a village festival. Let's fall in love again!!!
The sun is blasting at the moment, the air-conditioning is running and the birds are chirping. We are absolutely craving for a refreshing desert right now and so we decided to round up some breathtakingly delicious pink deserts for you. Yummm.....
Mismatching wrapping paper is always an eye sore at birthday parties. No matter how pretty the decoration is, the present stack seems to be in a world of their own at times. So here are a few DIYs to keep your gifts in the scene and match the decoration.
Masking tape has long been used for the walls, but has now changed function. It used to be used for stencils/ creating borders on the wall and covering door and window frames from paint. However now it is widely used for decorating as it can be done in any way you like and can be changed from time to time.
Washi tape comes either plain or patterned and comes in multiple tones.
Here are a few ideas to use around the home.
Bored of your old baskets that don't seem to fit in anymore? Add a bit of color by DIY-ing using neon wool, or cotton thread and weave through the basket in any patterns that you wish. Design Improvised came up with this idea and weaved a few of her old baskets. We are going to try this idea any day now :)
Open shelving in your kitchen, to do or not to do?
Personally, we wouldn't dare to use open shelves in the kitchen area, imagining how dusty and greasy it gets in such a short period. Many of the fabulous kitchens that we see on the net are pleasant to view, but lack functionality. Maybe a single shelf with just a few items on it that is easily reached will work, but ceiling high shelves will breed a lot of spiders in their life span.
Open shelving in the kitchen is just an aesthetic luxury created by interior designers without considering the time and effort it takes to clean and maintain. I am sure that home owners will look back after a few years and reconsider their decision in open shelves.
Do you use open shelving in your kitchen? Let us know how you feel about it.
We have seen it look tacky, but when color coordinated and placed nicely, golden bathroom fixtures add a rich cleanliness to the bathroom. The only thing to consider is that gold fixtures stand out and will easily cramp up a space. So remember to keep the area tidy and sleek.
This pastel colored natural canvas backpack by Pack Bags are naturally dyed and hand processed.
A pack as such will look good on any child :)
Cuteness OVERLOAD.... We never imagined how something so boring can turn into something so adorable and functional. The cute coat rack found on Miss Moss features little heads with screws as eyes, and soft edges to make sure no coats get damaged when tugged on. Aww....
If you have the time, patience and will to make paper mache head mounts, then this is your perfect DIY.
