A purchase that Kelly Wearstler would approve of

Dearest all, I am almost due to deliver the baby, and my hormones are going nuts.
I have to organize the whole house and I also went to an antique market yesterday and purchased this marble roman foot. I am so so happy with it. I think this is a purchase that Kelly Wearstler (my decor godess) would approve of.
It is now on my coffee table and it matches my roman painting behind the sofa.

I am soooo happy to have found a moment to post again. Oh my I missed it.

How I love my new best friend, I recently purchased a Clarisonic mia 2, just as a present for myself, and I was amazed how clean my face is after using it. It even diminished a frown line I had on my forehead! I placed it on a beautiful shell that was a present from my mom. It comes in handy to keep my Clarisonic clean. Best buy of the year. xoxo

unusual headboards

I am such a vintage lover, so I was very awed to see that they used as a headboard. 
So what about these wicker headboards, just lovely. To have one of them painted in your favorite color lets it pop out!

What a great idea to use a big vintage mirror as a headboard. This is perfect if you are decorating on a low budget as I have seen many of these kind of mirrors, but found them too big or odd shaped to hang them in a hall above a vignette, but as a headboard its perfect.

It amazes me more and more how multifunctional pallets are. I have seen chairs, tables etc but never as a headboard.
These are 3 very diferent styles of headboards, but all 3 very lovery!

Gold accents in the bedroom

I am such a big fan of gold accents in the bedroom. A wallpaper, headboard, pillow or a lamp something needs to be gold. It a warm rich color that especially now in the wintermonths invites you to snuggle up in your bed. In the first two pictures, both gold pillows are from Caitlin Wilson. In the last picture, the golden leaf wallpaper is from Osbourn and little Asuka wallpaper, wich I love!

Printic is fantastic!

This wonderfull Parisian based company called Printic, prints your iphone pictures (Facebook and Instagram as well) at the most easiest way. You need to install the app and then select the pictures you want to have printed and voila, they reach your mailbox in a pretty orange box if you choose the maximun amount of prints. They come only in a one size but if you want you can personalize them too. A minimum of 3 prints, and they cost 0,99$ each and free delivery worldwide.
I once spend 3 hours adding the images to an usb stick and then to have them printed in a store, waisting another 2 hours, it was worth it but now with Printic I can order pictures in a relaxed way, sitting on the sofa or from my cozy bed in the weekends, knowing it takes a few days for them to arrive to my doorstep.
Vive la Printic!

We are back

Dear All...It´s been a while and if you stopped reading, I don´t blame you. Thanks for the sweet messages from all over the world, saying you missed my posts and worrying if I was all right.
I am getting back to my old self, i think I just came into the most busiest time of my life not knowing how to juggle everything. Pregancy is going well, got a huge tummy already, people think I get into labour any minute but I still have 10 weeks ahead.
Matt is growing up so fast...amazing that babytime is over. He understands everything in Spanish and Dutch, such a clever boy. I hired a nanny, she will be helping me everyday in the mornings with matt and also helps me in the office, untill the new baby is born.
I enjoyed reading this article from the blog Oh joy!
Good to be back love u all!

Bed up!

Hopefully soon I am going to decorate a 20m2 studio apartment in Amsterdam which is 215.28 sq feet.
When it is so tiny you have give everything a second thought. 
A bed would take up most of the space so I want to use a design bed that is called Bed Up.
Bed up, is a system that you mount at your ceiling, and a panel to your wall. You can lower it at  different heights and you can use the bed legs for stability, after usage you fold it up towards the ceiling.

Anyone moving into a studio apartment, I say get a Bed up!

House tour

Sometimes you come across a home and you say: Yeahhh I can totally live there, cause I like this and love that... Well Jenn´s home tour was one of those and had to share it from Adore home magazine.

I think I would start living in her closet and never come out!

Spanish wedding

This weekend we had a beautiful wedding in Barbastro, a Village of the province of Huesca.
It was held in Lalann Bodega. I have to admid everything was so well arranged and full of little details, that it made it to my top 5 of best weddings. Above picture of me and my showing belly.

The beautiful bride and her father.

Culture, history, good food and a nice ambiance.

All guests had a card on the table with a personalized message and a photocollage. I was really touched that the wedded couple put so much effort in this detail.
Absolutely had a blast of a time.

Mosquito battle

What about you? I am having serious problems with Mosquitos, every year but this time I am more aware as I don´t want them to bite my little boy. Once they bit him 9 times in the face and he looked liked he was ill, apart of that it must be so annoying to have an itchy face and not been able to scratch it.
I was on the hunt for 2 Mosquito nets, I got one for Matt´s room but was still in need for our bed as well. I really wasn´t too happy about the fact to drill a hole in the ceiling to hang the Mosquito net from there. We have a ceiling fan... a pretty one, silver and minimalistic. ( I am aware that ceiling fans are a design NONO, but it´s so practical in a house without AC.) So I was thrilled to have found a Design Mosquito net called DBug, that doesn´t require drilling a hole in the ceiling. I hope to receive it by mail any time soon so we can sleep buzzz free.
