TRAVEL DECOR: WHEN IN MILAN 

TRAVEL DECOR: WHEN IN MILAN 

Travel decor is dear to my heart. I travel to see beautiful spaces before I enjoy the beautiful places. Backpacking through 3 countries in Europe in April saw me go to Geneva and Paris. The last stop was Milan, Italy- a country I fell hard for. The food, the sites,the culture, the language, the people! I want to go back again! We booked an Airbnb in Cimiano,Milan. It was a quaint little 2 bedroom apartment that fused a minimalist modern…

MOROCCAN INTERIORS

MOROCCAN INTERIORS

Morocco is a country I long to go to. I want to experience the rich culture, the food ( chicken tagine anyone?) , unlimited supply of Argan oil, but more than everything else I would love to soak myself  in Moroccan decór. Not to  forget the handmade, luxurious rugs. So many beautiful things to say about Moroccan interiors. For a country that was inhabited by the French, Berbers, Arabs and Spanish there is a bit of everything going on in…

DINING SPACES: THE MAKING OF A DINING ROOM

Dining areas: Hey good peoples. Let’s talk design today, shall we? I will take you through the making of a dining room. I grew up without a dining area. We would eat in our living room.

TRAVEL DECOR : PARISIAN APARTMENT

TRAVEL DECOR : PARISIAN APARTMENT

Paris is always a good idea and Parisian decor an even better idea. I recently visited Paris and fell in love with the city of love. The architecture-archaic historic Old World buildings ( I love using the term “Old World” a lot, like a whole lot). Everything about Parisian architecture blows you away! The tall windows, the rickety wooden floors, the ornately detailed ceilings, parquet flooring, huge entry doors, wainscotting ( the modern contemporalist in me fell in love with wainscotting!Ha! You…

BLACK IN THE LIVING ROOM

BLACK IN THE LIVING ROOM

Living rooms in black are feared by most, loved by others and received with iffyness by some. Black can be too harsh a color and that is the reason one in 1000 people will never consider painting any wall black. Also black sucks in light so rooms with black tend to give off a moody, mysterious and somewhat seductive vibe. The interwebs do not fail when it comes to inspiration on how to get that black inspired living room. Black, White…

HOME INSPIRATION

HOME INSPIRATION

Redoing a home is much harder than it looks in magazines.  It’s all fun and games while on pinterest and houzz apps until you walk into an actual shop and you can’t find what you were looking for. Or they have it in a different size and color from the size you had wanted. We did a fun living room collage inspiration a while ago. Lost it in our other blog but we are building up on the articles bit…

“Then you will travel, and the decor will move you” -Itch, 2017. Everytime I travel. I marvel at the architecture, interior design and decor of my destination.
