FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!
I decided to shoot the nursery before baby girl get´s here simply because I am sure I will have plenty of pictures with her later on and it is just easier to take photos without a newborn (at least that is what I think).
The theme of the nursery is jungle book or lots of animals. It came together easily as the room was already nicely painted when we moved in so we decided to leave it that way and figure out what to do with the room as we needed it (side note – we both absolutely loathe painting so this was a nice surprise).
First thing I ever got for this room were the banana leaf curtains from H&M and then I went from there with all white furniture, a golden carpet matching the tipi and the floor and lots of stuffed animals you can also find in the prints on the wall.
One of the highlights definitely is the customized name plate above her bed. I have found it at an Etsy shop and it came very quick made of great quality. Going to link the shop here.
Since I started working on the room before we even knew what gender our baby had this makes the perfect gender neutral nursery.
Do you prefer more or less color for home decor in general ? Would you go with a green wall?
and welcome to my first holiday post regarding the Easter festivities. No one knows if it is possible to celebrate Easter with anyone else than the people you are quarantined at home this year but nevertheless I wanted to share a colorful Easter table scape in yellow and navy. I just love to create table decoration set ups. This is were I can be super creative.
For this years Easter holiday my color theme is yellow and navy. I absolutely love a bright yellow for every- and anything and my Easter decor for 2020 makes no exception here. The place mats are the same I have in several colors and I really like the material and shape. A woven place mat is perfect for Spring weather and upcoming holidays.
The cutest pieces of the whole table decor definitely are the yellow bunny napkin rings. The contrast with the navy cotton napkins makes the color pop right away.
Another cuter addition to the set up are the ceramic eggs in different colors and the little happy easter signs.
And for the frittata recipe, this is what you need:
– 4 teaspoons of milk
– 8 eggs
– 1/2 teaspoon of salt (if you want to add more feta leave the salt unless it is too much)
– scallions chopped
– 100 g cheddar cheese
– 150 g feta cheese
– 1 avocado to add as topping after baking)
– mix the eggs, milk and salt together and put into oven pan
It has been over three years now since we moved into our house and I have to admit we are near crossing the finishing line (yes, it took me this long) on remodelling and decorating and furnishing. I re-did room after room and it took me a while to find out what I wanted for each of the rooms. The house was ready as we moved in but we didn´t like all of the wall colors so we first had to paint and then move on with decorative bricks or wallpaper or art.
Art itself is a difficult theme to talk about cause it somehow is like style. You see pictures or paintings you will like and a lot you will dislike. What your friends think looks amazing might creep you out and vice versa. And another huge factor in terms of art is the price. If you want to have an original hand painted piece it can cost you up to thousands of Euros (or even more) and who can or wants to spend so much money?! I am sharing an affordable way on how to decorate your walls with pieces you love for an affordable price. All you have to do is find what you like and be a little creative.
Places to look for art
Ikea // Let´s start with the easiest place and that would be Ikea for me. Simply because you walk in and choose what you like and leave. Most of their pieces are already framed or canvases but they also have different kind of pictures without a frame and a huge section with all shapes and color of frames so you can get creative on your own. I got my Jamea Dean and Audrey Hepburn cavases from Ikea and love them a lot. They are a classic piece in color and print and will match everywhere around the house.
Amazon // Another place to look for prints, pictures, paintings is amazon. I got my “Prada Marfa” canvas from amazon and I absolutely love it. It is hanging above my makeup table and totally completes my little beauty corner.
Etsy // And last but definitely not boring and with the most choices – the Etsy market place. I love to browse all of their downloadable pictures cause so I get them right away and can decide which kind of frame and size I like. It is the perfect way to customize your picture.
What kind of art do you prefer in your home? Does it have to be rare and exclusive or do you combine personal photos with modern prints.
As always thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
