wall covering

For over almost a year now I am thinking about adding something to my kitchen walls. My totally white kitchen and white walls can have something extra. Should I or should I not put some collage of beautiful, graphic and mixed plates on my wall??? After seeing above pictures I cannot resist any longer....YES I am going for it...

I am already looking everywhere for plates...and think I will make something of my own also. Well I love the pictures above and hope you will too.

summer, sun and your garden

Loving this outdoor inspiration for your garden and terras. The low seatings on the first picture look amazing on the Moroccan inspired terras. I also love the white painted wall for a more rough feeling. And what about the beautiful pink and grey colours combined with wooden details and floor. Love the use of the pillows as a place to relax. The striped fabric used as a sun blocker looks amazing too.

outside living

With the temperature still rising here I think these beautiful lightning will be so great in the garden. Just imagine yourself sitting outside at the end of the day, a glass of wine, some nice music and ofcourse these lights to bring that extra feeling... 

Wish you all a very nice weekend with lots of fun and maybe some of these fine outside moments in your own garden.
