Winter wonderland + color inspiration: white winter interiors

Hello, dears! It has been snowing here in the Netherlands! A LOT! And I absolutely love it. The world looks so much more beautiful covered in white, don't you think? Because of all the chaos on the roads and troubles with train traffic, I decided to work from home today. Below an Instagram image of the view from my kitchen glass door: my little balcony covered in snow. Pretty! And furthermore, below some beautiful interiors in shades of white. Enjoy!

Happy week + words of wisdom

Hello, dears! It's monday and to start of this week I'm sharing these words with you. We should all really spend more time living and less time online, don't you agree? I have been wasting way too much time on the internet and one of my resolutions for this year is to cut back on time spent online. Well, except for blogging - of course - 'cause that's too much fun. Have a great week!

Let's play interior stylist - decorating in black and neutrals

I've this thing where I pretend to be an interior decorator and I pull together random pictures of rooms I love and pretend to create a fab home. Who else does this? Please tell me I'm not alone :-) This week I've selected a few spaces in black and neutrals colors. I love the black paint on the wall in the living room and the black floors in the rest of the photographs. What do you think?
