It's  funny how I can write a blog about decorating and personal things in my life, and come to the conclusion that I have changed so much personally. Almost a year has passed by, now both kids can walk and they are not baby's anymore, the time has come that I have to better my own Beau Lifestyle.
I have waken up, and started on a new journey that includes dedication and hard work at the gym, good nutrition, caring more for the enviroment and  having a minimalistic lifestyle.
My goal is to be the best person I can be, Better body, better mind, better everything.
Changes are in the air... I can feel it.

The good thing of being a blogger is reading other blogs, doing research and fall in love with gorgeous things other people make around the globe.
For example reading Holly Beckers blog decor8, I saw she posted about these insanely pretty bowls and plates from Suite One Studio. White bowls with gold details make my heart skip a beat, and then those that have paintbrush strokes that look like little paintings just amazing.
I do agree with Holly as she mentions that we have to support small businesses! To contribute to this I buy many of my things from Etsy, mostly handmade items and vintage goods. Many of these sellers are one person -or small businesses, people that started their dream making the things they love. And what is there not to love to own a one of a kind item made with love!
Hope you are all are safe and well and have started your Christmas preparations for the festive days to come. Love

turtle shell

I have been in love ever since I layed my eyes on the Turtle shell decoration of Kelly Wearstler (she is a genius) I blogged about them here before.  She used resin turtle shells at the Tides restaurant.
I love animals so much, I couldn´t harm a fly, I would only accept having one of these if they were resin or an antique one....
I have seen them while diving in tropical waters, such magnificent animals. I would´t be happy that this becomes the next decor must have item and that people start capturing them for people to have them hanging on the walls. So if you are interested get a resin one that looks authentic or an antique one that is over 100 years.

I like them hanged on the wall or on a pretty stand.

new office needs new supplies

Hello everyone, I have butterflies in my stomach as I am going to move to a new office.
A new office that is a lot bigger and gives me a new start & a breath of fresh air.
Looking for new office desks I have a few to share with you.
I absolute love brass. But as brass desks come with a expensive price tag, I am thinking about doing a nice DIY and spray paint the legs in a metallic gold to achieve the brass look.
This beautiful Ikea hack is done by blogger Just Bella
She used an old ikea table of 49 euros and a few pieces of wood and metallic gold paint.

This gorgeous Addison desk is of West Elm, a little out of my price range but very lovely.

Another favorite, white lacquered and brass legs

Sliding doors

I am really looking into these DIY sliding doors, so practical for small spaces.
Browsing through pinterest I see a few diferent ways to do it. Barnstyle, or with plumbing tubes (my least favorite) or with a rail system on top ond little wheels on the floor ( i dont like to see rails in the floor)

Great to divide a room, hide a nook, close a pantry etc endless posibilities.

retty right! I adore it!

Love the positive message on the office wall! A really good idea to make one yourself in vinyl and put it on the wall for you and you and your co workers.
We outgrown our office and we are currently looking for a big warehouse, so that is quite exciting as
I want a lot of Space. I want a big office and showroom, one that I can decorate to my taste.
My current office is too tiny. Me and my workers are working too close to eachother, for the moment we are enjoying eachothers company, I am very blessed to have such great girls working for me.
Two kids and a good going company is too much to handle some times. I admire all mums that are entrepeneurs as well, It's hard work!
My greetings to to mum Camilla from Effortless Style. She has two adorable sons, spends lovely quality time with them and besides work she has time to make posts for her lovely blog.

Crossfit on my mind


Hello, hello
Sorry for the absence, my multitasking mama skills took over and aaaaah no time for blogging.
Blogging for me is a luxury, wich now September, back to school time is going to be much easier to do. My little guy Matteo will go to school for the first time, he is now 2.5 years ;)

I am doing Crossfit! Its hard, last week was the first time and I was so hurt, I wasn´t almost  able to dress myself. But, it´s addictive, so happy I go again.
I need to get this post babybody back in to shape, and it´s way harder than it looks like.
Gotta go, will be back soon with nice stories of my favorite places in Amsterdam.
