Hello there!! Weekend again and the living is easy…and my mood is exactly like the photo above! I wanna snuggle inside pink fluffy pillows and stay the whole weekend! Sleep, rest and feel that warmth of being home. And for an ideal situation I’d like Lara (my cat) purring next to me!
I don’t think I’ll do that anyway because I have stuff to do but it’s the first weekend after quite a time that I don’t have to go to the office and work, so I’m cool! What are your plans for the weekend? I hope you’ll have a great time in any case! xoxo

Fireplaces Vol.2

As I mentioned in the previous post, when winter is giving us cold feet (literally) we light a fire in our home. And if you have such a fireplace you don’t want anything else! Maybe a soft blanket and a book! And a hot drink with good company. Or -as a friend of mine corrected me once- hot company with a good drink! Choose your ideal situation.
In this post though I focus on fireplaces’s design. Simple lines, minimal style and some unusual decorations of them. Tiles for example and copper. It can be from earthy and sophisticated to funny, cool element of the room.

Beautiful fireplace for a summer house with a feminine touch. I would decorate it completely different but this is an opinion too. Via Orlando’s obsession





Fireplaces Vol.1

As I am writing this post my feet are a bit cold and I’m thinking how nice it would be if I had a fire next to me… I actually have a fireplace in the room but it’s really nothing comparing to these! Also, I should go to the basement for firewoods and I am very very lazy right now…

This month in Greece is super cold, we have snowing and stuff, fireplaces should be honored with a post, don’t you think? In fact, I found so many great examples that I decided to break the post in two parts. Besides the photos are so powerful that I didn’t want to ruin their glory. The first one in classic style and the second one (that will follow) in simple lines.

In this post, classy is the right word to describe these spaces. Elaborate decoration, romantic to eclectic style, traditional structure. BUT, what I love the most is their final aesthetic, where through material, colors and general decoration of the room (painting or nothing at all) we could describe them as even minimal! Except one, number 3 is totally classic and aristocratic! What is your favorite?
