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.

Happy Friday you guys,

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

have you already decorated for Easter or are you still searching for some inspo? I have never been one to overly decorate for Easter. It is subtle but noticeable. You will recognize that Easter is rolling around but it´s no Christmas.

So let´s dive in a little deeper. 

My subtle Easter Decor

There are (only) 3 places I decorate for Easter in our home. Our console table in the entry way and two spots in the living room (our dining table and the tray to the right of the TV). 

I am mostly using the same decor. I love to decorate with ceramic Easter eggs, bunnies and real catkins. I hang Easter eggs made of glass or plastic on them and that´s mostly it, but that doesn´t its boring. 

The ceramic Easter eggs I have decorated at the side of our TV are black and white with polka dots and stripes. The pattern makes a nice contrast with the golden and plain white eggs. Adding flowers makes for a nice decor as well. 

Do your love decorating overall or only for certain holidays ?

Wishing you a nice weekend. See you on Monday.

Don´t we all know the feeling of falling into a fresh made bed. I mostly know this from hotel beds which always have their very special and super fresh smell and I wanted to have this for my home to.

First of all I swapped out our bedding. I went with an all white ruffled bedding on pillows and blankets and I LOVE it. Love it. Looks so clean and super chic.

To set some color accents I added velvet ruffled pillows from H&M (I have linked them in the widget below), gray velvet pillows (they are also from H&M but could not find them to link) and the bigger turquoise pillows that match the duvet (set is from Ikea, still available but in another color).

All of the colors complement the hues that are already present in the bedroom. The light gray and mint shades create a super calming atmosphere.

Now for smells – I love anything Rituals related and one of my two favorite lines is the Sakura line. It smells divine like cherry blossoms and rice milk. So this is my tip to get your favorite body cream onto your sheets without staining – body mist. Simple is the answer. I got this body mist a while ago and immediately thought of it. 

Using a body mist for you bedding is the perfect solution if you are sensitive to softeners and anything detergent related. I smells great but doesn´t stay on too long plus it is not overpowering or irritating.

Do you have and tips and tricks to get a fresh and divine smelling bedroom ? I would love to hear.

I definitely look forward on making my bed in the morning now cause I love the look of our new bedding and the decor pillows.

Next week is going to be all fashion related. I am sharing my last Winter outfits before we are diving right into Spring styles and colors.

Happy Friday you guys,

I wasn´t sure if I would share a table scape this year cause all of our planned festivities have been cancelled due to the second lockdown but we are allowed to celebrate Christmas with our family so here we are.  The minute I heard about the loosening of the rules for the Christmas days I was going all out creating a last minute table scape with things I already had.

I wanted to have a rustic table scape with lots of wood and greenery but ended up having no wood but lots of fir. I personally love how it turned out. The table cloth is old but I have never used it. I went with red plates and red gingham napkins for the country flair. For some glamour I added all golden accessories like the candle holders, napkin rings and the bootle brush trees. 

As a little extra I love to add string lights. These are the fairy lights and make the faintest little light spots which are awesome for table lighting besides the candles.

I am pretty proud of myself for pulling this off in the short time I had. Normally I think about my Christmas dinner table scape for weeks.

Here is a picture how it looks at night:
