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.

Good morning you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

today´s post really gets me excited. I am a organization -let´s say- freak and I can totally get my fix out of it. When I am cleaning up our house on a daily base and nothing is standing around and it looks nice and smells good I get a deeply satisfiying and happy feeling. Everytime I walk by I can only smile. I know this is super weird and some might think how can someone be so obsessed with cleaning and a tidied up house but I am. I never took and eneagramm test but I would probably tend to be a 1 in this field.

I totally hate it if a thing hasn´t a place to go. Stuff lying around without a reserved spot in a closet or drawer makes me nervous. I recently redid my pantry and that was my absoulte nemesis haunting me in my dreams. Why is this room always such a mess?

Anyways I have 5 tipps for you today to make organizing your home a little easier cause it seems daunting and overwhelming starting right in the middle and you might think you will never get the job done.

1 // Choose sections one at a time

You can´t tackle everything at once. The mess you have to make to get a drawer / section organized will drive you mad cause you have to clear out everything first to have an overview on which amount of stuff you have to work on.

2 // Declutter first

Declutter before organizing. Getting rid of stuff before you are sorting things back in is essential. First of all it creates new space and second of all you don´t have to touch the stuff twice which saves a huge amount of time and nerves. Also a great tip if you have a upcoming move. You will save so much time unpacking and also a bunch of full boxes. You can always donate things which are still fine.

3 // Order in category piles

This will be your rough grid of how many catgories you have and how high the amount of things is for each. It is essential for step 4 cause otherwise you will again have to much items lying around in your house you don´t need.

4 // Get the right baskets / labels

Since you know now exactly how many different boxes you will need you can go to the Home Depot or Ikea or the Container Store or oder from amazon but boxes to store your stuff are important. Be sure to get labels (or a label maker if you are a professional) as well and pens to write onto these (often forgotten). It will give you a feel of relieve when everything goes into a place and is organized and put away.

5 // Incorporate a system into your daily routine

So the last tip requires a little persistence because you won´t be as cluttered as before if you are putting back the items you need every day. I know this may seem ridiculous but there really is a work relief behind it. It is just like any other habbit you have. It needs time to establish but after a few weeks you will do it automatically.

Even if you are just starting to get your home organized or you are a long time organizer like I am and love to improve on your system I hope this has been a little helpful. I get most of my bins, boxes and baskets from Ikea. They have a great variety on size, material and color.

If you have any questions left let me know. Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Happy Friday,

I finally came around to make this spinach dip last Saturday and let me tell you it is amazing. It is warm and cheesy and delicious with or without bread. I really couldn´t get enough and Florian loved it as well. This is definitely going to be made for my next party and hopefully everyone else loves it as much as we do.

For dinner parties I usually serve one dip and this is it for this year. It was super easy to make and much better to eat. Plus your house smells amazing.

The recipe I used for is from Homemade Hooplah and it is called the “Creamy Spinach Dip” and it absolutely is.

I just added some chilli flakes and a half cup of pine nuts but it will also taste fine without. Make sure to try this classic but not at all ou

Any plans for the weekend anybody ? It is going to be superhot again.
