Headboard Dreams

We currently don’t have a headboard in our bedroom, as our bed is plainly positioned against a wall, but I can write books on the amount of times Mr B and I have gone back and forth on this subject. Yes, no, yes, no, an upholstered one, a rectangular dark leather one, yes, no, that one looks too cheap, that one is too bl**dy expensive etc etc…. We moved in together over 10 years ago, and at least half of that decade has been spent talking the talk,but not yet walking the walk. It’s been a while since we last attempted to find on that we both had an instantaneous love affair with, but lately inspiration had been bubbling again, and headboards have me dreaming once more (maybe a complete bedroom makeover whilst I am at it? ). Let’s take a trip down inspiration avenue… Pictures via Pinterest Advertisements

Autumn Design Must Haves

Summer’s fading into Autumn over here, and I feel like sprucing things up a bit in the LeenLovesStyle household. We’ve been living here for ten years now (yes, 10! Feels like forever!), and after a decade of everyday routines, rummaging kids and evolving taste, it’s time for an injection of new-ness and  bit of tongue-in-cheek in our interior and daily lives. I’ve spent many a lunchbreak browsing the wonderful world of the world wide web, and there have been a few things lately that have my pulse racing. As always, coffee and softness are high on my wishlist, but the Cybex Hausschwein (home pig) really caught my eye. Cute (just look at it!) and practical (big enough to contain magazines, toys or blankets), that’s how we like it! 1 – Nespresso x Clio Goldbrenner travel mug holder / 2 – HK Living at Juttu Marble Board / 3 – Primark Glasses / 4 – City Sheep Rug / 5 – Hay Rainbow Tray / 6 – Ikea Vintner Pillow / 7 – Illy x Alessi …

5 Instagrams That Make My Heart Bloom

AKA credit where credit’s due… I admit, I am a social media addict, and especially Instagram knows how to tug my heart strings (and keep my mind occupied). Any moment of the day, Instagram is awash with beautiful feeds, pops of colours, floral hints of pastel and anything to please my visual OCD. Nothing inspires me like a stunning visual, so I’ve pulled together my five favourite feeds of the moment all dusted with a hint of magic and a sprinkle of inspiration for all of you to enjoy.                                                           BEAUTYMINDED BE Ready for a new week? 🌴 beautyminded.be will have some new articles about these loves this week! ❤️ | #beautyminded #tomford #neroliportofino #aceandtate #glossier #chanel #lamer #maccosmetics #burgundytimesnine #spanishpink #lapiscine #byredo #orchidsoleil #jomalone #starmagnolia #deciem #theordinary A post shared by Katia Martens (@beautymindedbe) on Apr 17, 2017 at 9:35am PDT Katia from BeautymindedBE is undoubtedly …

Instagram Life

Aaaand we’re easing back into a new work week. Our little family holiday is over, and now it’s time to jump back into the daily grind. Time for a little recap? That’s what I was thinking as well 🙂 Longing for summer days, hot nights, clear blue skies and faraways places…..

White and gold heaven

It’s Sunday, time for my weekly interior design inspiration session, also known as “I really want to redo the whole of my house, but might have to wait a while longer….” This week, I’ve been crushing on white (#repeatoffender) with little touches of gold, both yellow and rose. A light fixture here or a kitchen or bathroom tap there, the hue of the accent forms a perfect offset that makes the white look even more pristine and calming, so hey, double whammy!  

Sunday Inspiration

I am a sucker for beautiful bathroom decors, and don’t we all know it. I admit, I am guilty as charged, so what better way to spend a lazy Sunday, especially a cold, freezing one like today, browsing for some bathroom inspiration. Hot cup of tea in one hand, legs cozily covered by softest blanket ever, kids are happily playing in their room (Thank heavens for Lego!) and I am floating away on clouds of marble, stunning bathroom vanities, deco inspiration and a renewed surge to tackle my bathroom. Happy a happy Sunday lovelies!   Pictures via Pinterest and Tumblr

Inspiration Sunday

Time to about things differently this Sunday. Instead of focusing on a certain detail, a certain style or a certain room, how about I show you the real smorgasboard of inspiration that caught my eye this week? Food styling or a certain dishes that made me salivate just by looking at them, gorgeous tiles, images that set my wanderlust alight, cosy sweater season must haves and the most gorgeous Fall fashion colour scheme. Sundays are for dreaming….   Pics via Pinterest and Tumblr.

Light as air

A while ago, I read a tagline fo an interior design article somewhere ‘Why light and airy rooms are even more popular than Scandinavian minimalism”, and somehow that just stuck with me. Because it’s true! No matter how I twist and turn it, no matter how I juggle around fancy names and aesthetics, purring how much I love a toned down, monochrome Scandinavian what’s not, light and airy will always be what  rings my deco loving heart’s bell. Come to think of it, when I dissect what exactly it is that makes an interior visually and emotionally pleasing, it all comes down to one thing: a flood of light streaming in, giving a room that airy, lighter than a feather look and feel. Sure, white will always be my main colour scheme, but when a white interior gets flooded by the sun, that’s when the magic happens… Pictures via Pinterest and Tumblr
