PASTEL LOVE: ZARA HOME LOOKBOOK

Zara Home’s newest lookbook reminds me of marshmallows and cotton candy. Oh, the sweet pastel colors. And those tiles – I can’t get them out of my mind!

BURST OF COLORS

Happy first day of 2014!!!

One of my readers noticed that I don’t feature enough bedroom designs on the blog which, in fact, is true. For some reason, I am always drawn to living rooms and especially dining rooms perhaps because these are the most used areas in my apartment. But that’s kind of selfish of me, right? And so for this year, I promise to post more inspiration photos not just for the bedroom but also for the other spaces at home.

I’m going to start with these colorful bedrooms for older kids and teenagers. They’re vibrant, fun and exciting – exactly how we want this year to be :)

CHRISTMAS HOME INTERIOR BY H&M

It’s already the third week of November – do you know what this means? Time to dress the house for the holidays! Luckily, H&M has made the job easier for all with these decorating ideas. Choose from: (1) a warm, rustic interior with red and neutral tints, (2) a white and silver gray palette combined with shiny details, (3) a mixture of lace and soft velour in white and gold, and (4) a classic red and white look with a playful twist. More Christmas-related posts in the coming days!

SWING

When my sister and I were little, our nanny would sometimes take us to the playground after siesta (or afternoon nap). The most vivid memory I have of the playground is the swing area. You see, I have a love-hate relationship with swings. I have fallen off them, scraped my arms and knees, cried in pain (or from fear) more than once. Yet I still wanted them: the monotonous creaking sound that they made; the wind that drowned out the voices as I went up and down, up and down. Yes, I was neither brave enough to go as high as the others went nor strong enough to stand on the seat as the other children did. But that’s what I like about swings – wimps like me can enjoy them, too.
