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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!
