Make It Yours: Knitwear bedroom

Hey all of you obsessed with home decorating. This is a new weekly post where I will take a beautiful interior photo and show you how you can achieve it on a budget. Style does not have to cost a fortune – you can DIY and you can re purpose and also there are great finds than can help you achieve the look you want.

This week I want to start with a bedroom photo by @oh.eight.oh.nine

It is a very contemporary design, very modern and elegant. Great style for a couple – not too masculine, not too feminine. Love the mix of fabrics and the stacking of them.

Ottoman – hidden in the corner but very nice accent is the moroccan white pouf with black stitching.  The one I found on ETSY is a bargain deal of 2 made from genuine leather.

Clothes Ladder –  i promised you some DIY and here is the first project. Unless you want to spend hundreds (i am not kidding) on a white washed ladder you better do it yourself. Here is a great ladder that will look amazing with some sanding and a coat of chalk paint. If you are not DIY-er you can come up with an agreement with the maker to paint it to your liking.

The Blanket – two options for you again  a DIY pattern for those of you who love to knit and a ready made blanket for those of you who are not into knitting

 

The Paper Bag – they are everywhere, they are trendy and you can use them in every room. Here are a couple of favorites with motivational quotes.

 

Faux Fur Throw – remember we never will recommend using real fur. Always go for faux – it is not cruel. Faux fur is great for creating hygge feeling in any room.

Knitted Pillow – the reason i started with this interior is first i want to make it my own asap and second because of the knits. I am obsessed about knitwear and knitted fabrics. They make the home feel so cozy. The one I have picked is made of cotton and is amazing.

Hanging Light – never save on lights. They are like the earrings of the room. The better they are the better your home looks. Our recommendation is this lamp, which you can customize a lot to make it fit perfectly into the decor.

Night Stand –  our suggestion s a very practice one. Although not a perfect match I believe those two to be of great use and still match the overall style of the bedroom. They are a bargain when we talk money.

Flowers – unless you can afford fresh flowers all year round our suggestion is go for faux peonies. They are durable, easy to maintain and generally look amazing.

Graphic Artwork – nothing more versatile than graphic artwork. If you can draw or paint – go ahead, DIY, but if you are pencil scared go for our pick

 

We hope you can now make the bedroom yours without breaking the bank. Let us know how it went, we would be happy to see photos of your rooms.

See ya next week XOXO

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Top 10 Bohemian Wall Tapestry Finds

Boho is a great trend. It is a combination between hippie, ethnic and whimsical I can not seem to get enough of. I have been dreaming of making a bohemian bedroom for me and my SO for quite some time now. I have been collecting great finds on my Bohemian Decor board on Pinterest and literally drooling over some of the things I came across while researching the boho decor style.

Etsy turns out to be one of the best places to go for if you want to get quality handmade bohemian items. That is why now I will share with you my list of very best wall tapestries – an absolute must in every boho room. They change the dimentions of the room and make it out worldly. Especially the big ones – they turn the room from simple square space to a much more organic shape.

Bohemian decor is bringing home decor back to nature and the natural ways people are meant to be. It is the absolute opposite of minimalism and still is very feminine and soft. If someday I have a She Shed it will definitely have this boho vibe so I can feel as womanly as possible.

So go on – have a look at my favorite finds. Hope you will come to love them as much as I do.

  1. Macrame Hanging Wall tapestry

Delicate and quite modern piece. I have always thought that macrame and the things made with it is a bit granny style but this wall tapestry proved me wrong 100%. Found it on the Noma Macrame  store where you can see all sorts of beautiful things. I  encourage you to look through them and see if your piece is there and waiting.

2. Shabby wall tapestry

Shabby and very free feeling. This wall hanging tapestry is a combination of a variety of fabrics, textures, crystals and natural elements. Love how gypsy  it feels but still is modern and stylish without being kitsch. Found it on Onamaiart shop along with many other beautiful items. Totally worth the time to look through it.

3. Majestic hanging wall tapestry

This piece is such a showstopper! Can’t wait to get my hands on it. My living room will be lit with it and will look stunning. This piece will be the subject of conversation with everyone who enters. My guests will be as enchanted as I am. It is the scale, it is the color and it is the overall composition too. Love it. Love the store I found it –  TeddyandWool.

4. Marcame Ombre Wall Tapestry

How not to love blue ombre. Indigo blue is one of my favorite colors. It is natural, nothing forced about it and looks stylish all year round. Indigo will be. Found this beauty on the MOXmacrame 

5. Yin Yang Big Wall Tapestry

And now to the big tapestries we go. I love how effortless they turn a bland wall into a colorful masterpiece. You can align them so they do not match the corners of the wall and create your serene boho cave in a corner of the room. Nothing to it. Just look at some corner boho caves on my Bohemian decor pinterest board. This big tapestry will fit perfectly. It is big enough and the Yin Yang design is very subtle. Found on the GoodArtUK store.

6. Bright Mandala Wall Tapestry

I have no trouble imagining this tapestry as a background for my meditation cave. Call it meditation, call it just some me time for quieting the mind. Call it whatever but this mandala is both calming and warming for me. I would love to see it when I open my eyes and absorb the beauty and love those colors bring. Found on the BrandlessArtist  Etsy Store.

7. Summer Wall Tapestry

As for summer – this is the one. I can see my summer villa with it and it will look so fresh and still cozy and comfortable. Speaking of she sheds – i can think of a space – an outdoor kitchen that can be easily transformed int art/she shed space and this tapestry is on the list. Definitely. Found on the  DesignBohemian store.

8. Elephant Wall Taperstry

Elephants are a symbol of good luck and prosperity. One of the richest guys I know has filled his house with them and is super lucky in love, live and work. I think it is worth the try and the pinch of belief.

9. Indian Block Print Mandala Wall tapestry 

Boho design and India go together like two peas in a pod. This is authentic block printed tapestry. I belie that handmade carries some of the love and spirit of the maker. Such intricate work requires a lot of love and dedication. That I find really inspiring.

10. This is it – the wall tapestry of my dreams

This is how my bedroom should look. Big, gigantic tapestry behind the bed. So cozy and warm and graphic. Love, love, love it. Found on the Karmandala store. They have all sorts of wonderfil tapestries. Take a good look around. I am sure you will be very tempted to buy them all.

Hope you loved my collection aka shopping list. Is there anything you would add that will make a boho room a showstopper?

St. Patrick’s day Decor Ideas

Hey dears ones!

Another great holiday is coming along. Even though I am not Irish I see no problem in celebrating the holiday of luck with some great Irish friends. It is a wonderful way to remind ourselves that we forge our own luck with wit and fun. And of course another great occasion to decorate our home to be festive and fun too.

Shamrocks, horseshoes, wearing green and drinking ale, whiskey and beer (just the adults of course!). what a holiday it is. This year I have been looking a lot around etsy to refresh our decor. For the first time we are going to use wreaths too. Not a big fan of wreaths but found some fantastic ones that are crying to be hanged on our living room wall or door.

Below you can find the list of products I fell in love with.

*Disclaimer – the text below contains affiliate links. Using them won’t add anything to the listed price. You will only help me receive a small percentage and keep on giving you great home decor advice.

Irish ladder with signs is something I found in ASentimentalSeason store. It is a great find for hanging in the hallway for entertaining the guests from entering the house.

Wreaths I promised you and wreaths I deliver. A beautiful monogram wreath for the front door with a very non-tacky green ribbon and berry branches found on the ElegantWreath store. Get yours here.

A great statement piece this wreath is. I love the branches and the vines and the very bright ribbon. What I love most about this wreath is that it can be reused after St Patrick’s day too – just remove the ribbon and have all season  beauty. Found it on AHolidayShoppe – a great place to go for wreaths and holiday decor. Get your garland here.

But wreaths can go on steroids too. We can see that very easily on TheWhisperingWreath shop. This is a great wild irish party welcome piece. Bold and quite daring – exactly what the holiday wants from us. Get yours here.

I know I went overboard with the wreaths but I promise – this is the last one. It is so stylish and elaborate I couldn’t resist sharing this find. The branches and the flowers are so well balanced that would keep it a lot longer just because it is lovely and classic. Found it on TwistedPineWreaths etsy shop and you can get your wreath here.

Decoration or a door but not necessary – a green and white felt garland you can put anywhere in the house. Very low key and again – non tacky. St Patricks day can be done with style and staying stylish with this garland found on GracieAndMarie store.

Last but not least – what is a St Patrick’s day without a rainbow treasure hunt. I love hiding clues and giving hint on rainbow colored papers so the kids can find the treasure – a pot filled with chocolate coins. Thous irish gnomes are a great find when they go near the treasure. Found them on the Rainbowsmileshop.

 

I am curious to hear about what your St. Patrick’s day traditions are. Give me your stories in the comments below.

See ya!
