Gur is rug spelled backwards and it started with the passion of its founder, Célia, for handcrafted rugs, tipical from Portugal. This brand makes unique rugs with the colaboration of diferent designers, and gives a new life to an old art, using ancient techniques with a flare of new design.
The result couldn´t be more beautiful, a fresh look and a contemporary view to the old crafts that we love discovering.
Last post I showed how you can use yellow as a part of your decor, keeping this mood, today I show you some pieces you can use as part of the touches of colour you can add to your room, any room.
With these ideas you can easily turn over the mood of the room you want to change, keep a simple and neutral base and add the colour if you are afraid to play with more than one colour at a time (you can never go wrong with that), or go overboard with mix and match colours and patterns.
It’s almost back to school time (yes, for some of you fortunate parents, it has already started, but on this side of the screen it’s next week!!)
So i’ll leave you with these sugestions for a simple but stylish workplace.
For the younger kids, a light and confortable workspace is everything, try to pick something colourful as well so that they feel happy to be doing homework. Don’t forget the height of the table and chair to avoid back problems.For the young adults, some neutral ideas with trendy black and wood combined.
I’ve been trying to update my old, old, old kitchen for some time, and, although we haven’t been able yet to save Money for the big parts like countertops, cabinets and floors, I’m making the best I can on a budget.
So the little things like door knobs, floor rugs and decor such as frames, chairs, cushions and other stuff, have been studied and bought as we can.
The one thing I know, is that I want a kitchen with splashes of green here and there and a mix of natural materials.
So come with me, as I take on a tour of some of the ideas and feel free to share your thoughts with me.
I always like to try special places to go on my birthday and this year was no excepcion. I wanted a place where I could take the kids in the afternoon, with a nice outdoor space and found the Madestein in The Hague.
They are used to have events, like weddings, baby showers and birthdays, so it was the perfect spot. We got to have a high tea party, and it was really well catered, the decor inside was a plus.
With industrial style still in vogue, Madestein has iron glass doors, wood paneling, metal lamps and to go with all of it, gorgeous green sofás. The surroundings are beautifull, with a view to a lake and a wood that you can use for picnics as well.
I loved the dettails, so I wanted to share them with you.
