new DIY to do...

Here in Beau Lifestyle´s home there was a shirt crisis! Mr. Beau has broken 7 fine shirts in the last couple of weeks, right at the elbow he managed to tear his shirt or make a hole in the sleeve. I fixed the shirts by ironing elbow patches on to his shirts so he could wear them again, they were still to nice or too new to throw them away. now I have always liked elbow patches, especially seeing the above picture i think is very cute for a girls shirt. This is a little DIY i have to do for myself.

My O'verlays arrived!

I am as excited as i can be, today my O'verlays have arrived for the nursery!
They came well packed with a sweet note from Cheryl and Danika.

This weekend my parents are coming over to celebrate my birthday with me and I have asked the soon to be grandpa to finish the last little proyects in the nursery.

After that i can reveal the nursery to you and i must say it came together very well with a lot of mix and match modern with vintage things and DIY proyects.
I am still staying home, almost recovered from my illness, but still not on full strength.

To see more fretwork panels from O'verlays, click the button on the left in this blog, you'll be amazed about how easily you can transform any boring piece of furniture into a expensive looking designer piece.

things I like...

Visting blog design indulgences, I came across so many lovely images, I need to start owning an account on Pinterest to keep track of the things I like.

this voluspa was a little treat I bought last weekend, I love that the house smells of green lemon and vanilla, makes me want to bake cookies....

that wallpaper...

We are almost at the end of january, time flies past so quickly!
Came across these lovely images over HGTV still see some christmas decoration here and there but I was drawn to the black and white wallpaper. 

While the rest of the house is evenly pretty...

If I had to work in an office of a big company, I would like it to be like this.

Nursery inspiration

This is al I can think of lately, I am almost becoming an addict to create a cozy nursery for the baby boy to come. I want to make it so it looks nice for the baby, but also has to be a space that I feel happy in being an adult. The nursey I am decorating at the moment has the colors light blue, yellow, white and brown...post about it soon. These nurserys are my inspiration for this week

vintage silk scarf pillows

Did you ever had the guts to turn your vintage pucci, hermes or any other pretty silk scarf into a pillow?
I haven´t, but after coming across these images I might want to do some DIY.
After all, it´s a waste to have your scarfs locked up in a closet if you can enjoy to see them every day, when turned into a pillow.

funky bags

Came across these bags here and found them quite funny.
I really like product design and applaud to people who come up with something original to
promote their products.
Could be great to have something like this on a reusable bag instead of plastic or paper.

And there was light...

These 2 lamps are there for over 2 years, but never worked as I didn´t had an electrical point there.
The electricians came over and fixed it, now at night it´s nice and cozy, and finally there was light in our entrance...

upcoming things

How did your 2012 started? Did you made any resolutions? Are you going to tackle those to do things on your list, eat more healthy and use that gym pass you´re paying for ...
I am so busy with the pregnancy, the bump is really big, people think I have to go in labour within days, and I still have 2 months to go. My neighbor asked me if I was sure I wasn´t having twins...(i am really sure I am not). Besides the big bump I am having a great pregnancy, no fuss, able to do all daily things and work normally. Mr. Beau and me we had a belly photoshoot at the beach a few days ago, we were so lucky with the sun, it was a perfect day, soon I´ll post them whenever I get my hands on them.
The nursery is coming together bit by bit, still many things to be done and I want it to be a suprise...so a little more patience please.
The 5th of february I will be turning 30...I found that funny lolly picture over at Pinterest. A good way to laugh about your ¨¨30 sucks¨¨  birtday and enjoy the lolly´s.
