How to set up an Easter Center Piece at your Dinning Room Table…

….

Table decor is one of my favorite things to create in terms of home decor and hosting especially for the holidays cause it can be as extra as possible. 

Easter is an amazing holiday to create a unique center piece for your dining room table you can leave and build your setting around or just enjoy between hosting. 

First of all I decide on a theme which wasn´t to hard here because it is clearly Easter and what would be better than bunnies and eggs. So that´s that.

The second thing I am always doing is set a color theme. This time I went with blue and blush cause the candles I got have the most beautiful tie-dye shade and I definitely wanted to incorporate them into my Easter center piece.

A great thing to add some interest to the whole scene is adding height. I you use different vases, candle holders and different sized pieces of decor to achive this. It is so easy and so much fun to play with the heights of all the pieces. Usually the center piece of my table decor is the highest one on the tabe, this time the blue vase. I decorated the cute branches of catkins with all of my glittery blush and blue Easter eggs and I love how it looks every year. 

White ceramic pieces are your friend in this case. The white isn´t distracting from the other colors and also keeps the table decor theme light and airy plus you can incorporate all of your white pieces into every upcoming season.

Finally !!! I am finally sharing our redecorated living room with you guys. It took way longer than I expected and I was very annoyed at the end also I had some obstacles before even editing the pictures cause I accidentally deleted the pictures twice and on the day I was shooting the sun was shining the whole time but when I was done with cleaning it was gloomy so it wasn´t super easy to shoot but I think we did a great job.

Another point why it took a lot longer than I thought was that I had some ideas I wanted to incoroporate until the end plus I had to get plants/flower and print out some pictures and while this would have cost me half a day before Emilia I now have to break it up into two or three trips. 

So with no further ado here is our old but new redecorated living room / dining room. I absolutely love how it turned out. It now has such a comfortable and cozy boho chic vibe to it. 

Furniture : sidebord Hauga / TV Stand Kallax / Kallax compartments Drona / showcase Billy, doors Oxberg / chairs old the new model is called Bergmund / baby book case amazon / table is from a carpenter, it is oak / round coffee table bonprix / carpet bonprix / cow hide carpet Ikea / sofa XXXLutz / toy basket Wayfair / 

Decor : books amazon / pillow case H&M / planters H&M check out my recent finds here / moss balls Frank / flameless candles Frank / fake hanging plants Ikea here and here / gold pot Ikea / bull head Frank / all of the frames are from TK Maxx or our local drug store

I went with lots of earthy tones and glamed it up with gold accents in the decor. To cozy it up big soft cushions were a must. The majority of my decor is from H&M Home, TK Maxx, Ikea and bonprix. I personally like to shop affordable but good looking pieces. After linking all the pieces I incorporated into this room this could easily be a commercial for the Ikea catalogue 😉

The cinnamon colored accent wall was the last thing I changed before ticking this room and I definitely love how it turned out. Vibrant or dark accent walls have become super popular over the last couple years and it is a trend I totall dig but getting rid of a dark wall is a whole other project.

How to organize several parts of your home…

With the new year always comes the urge to start fresh around here (or at least to get organized, put away the Christmas decor and have a clean house). I have done lots and lots of organizing throughout the two years of the pandemic and some areas still need improvement but I am getting there. It gives me such a peace of mind and makes me love our house even more when everything is neat and has a place to go. 

With all the things Emilia has and has gotten for Christmas it is even harder to keep it tidy around here and I manage as best as I can but that will be another post for you guys where I specifically share want I did and why.

Now let´s have a look at the last areas I gave a proper cleaning. I am going to link as many boxes and little helper I used.

 

Kitchen – Spice Drawer

This was such a huge mess. I didn´t know half the things I had and always bought more cause I couldn´t find anything up to the point when I got almost crazy finding some of my spices and dediced to clean out the whole drawer.

I got these little glass containers in a set from amazon and they are super handy. They fit great into the drawer, they come with stickers to properly label your glass containers and a funnel to avoid messes. Love that the lids are labeled. 

 

Hallway – Shoe Closets

 I definitely am a little ashamed to share the before picture of my main shoe closet but yeah that is the real truth. I haven´t sorted this one for about two years and it definitely showed. I purged lots of shoes I don´t want to wear anymore as well as shoes that don´t fit anymore after my first pregnancy although I would say my feet are back to normal at about 95%. 

I sorted them by category. Flats and mules on the top and heels from the middle to the bottom. Sneakers in the middle. The super cool shoe riser are from Ikea and pretty awesome cause sneakers take up a lot of space and this way you save lots of space.

Bedroom – Make-Up Vanity

If you follow me for a time now you might now that I love Ikea a lot and could make proper advertising for them by sharing parts of my home so of course I do have Ikea furniture in my bedroom as well. My vanity and the Alex container are both very handy in terms of storing make-up and little beauty gadgets. I have gotten baskets over the time to properly store all of my belongings and of course my labelmaker could not be missed.

Happy Easter Monday you guys,

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

we had a fun filled Easter weekend – a nice change to our usual days – with Easter Egg Hunt, having Easter brunch and overall some quality family time. 

I also always use the time when my husband is home and can look after our daughter to organize a little corner in our home. It makes me happy and keeps me sane and the clutter to a minimum.

This weekend I organized / redecorated our Billy showcase that is in our living room. I use it to store all of our glassware and also my big candles in glass jars. 

How to create the most storage space

Use your shelf from top to bottom

I got these small boxes with matching lids from Ikea and I was really sad in the beginning because I wanted to put four in one row and that didn´t work by a few cm but the upper shelf could not been any lower. Fortunately two fit on top of each other which saved me even more space. There isn´t much space left so this really is optimal.

Adjust your shelves so no space will be wasted

I changed the height of some shelves and put them as low as the top of the highest item was. This will add more space. Maybe just a little but it will pay off if you do this for every shelf. 

Add extra shelves if you have the space

Another thing I did to maximize space in my showcase is adding shelves. By the space I saved I was able to add two shelves into my showcase and this really helped to store a lot more than I could before. Thankfully the billy showcase is always available at Ikea so it is not hard to get extra shelves. Maybe a thing to consider before buying a new piece of furniture.

Decorate with the things you are organizing

I took all of the beautiful glassware I own out of my kitchen cabinet and added it to my showcase. I own a ton of pretty glasses and finally wanted to “decorate” my showcase with them. The colors are all complementing each other and look great. Now that I can see what I actually have I am sure I am not going to forget the beautiful pieces so often.

 I personally love a neat and organized home and I am happily sharing my tips and tricks with you guys. With the pandemic still going strong I almost organized the whole house so more content regading this theme is to come.
