Another Sunday, and a rare moment of utter relaxation while my two mini’s are happily (and quietly) playing… time to get deco dreaming. A series of click throughs led me to Harper and Harley (I.Adore.Sarah!!! And her style even more so!) and more specifically her article “How To Make You Work Space Look Straight Out Of Pinterest”, and boy, I was sold. All of my office dreams had been turned into reality, and poured into visuals for me to see (and pin, and save onto several boards!). A lot of white, touches of grey and black and beautiful marble accessories and some greeneries as the finishing touch! Aaaahhh deco dreaming, my favourite Sunday pasttime!

Sundays are for naps, catching up on todo lists, and a good dose of eye candy. I was browsing through some interior inspiration posts I had bookmarked, and a drop dead gorgeous home in Primrose Hill, London provided some epic and definite eye candy. Besides a perfect London location, a stunning kitchen, private courtyard and a whole lotta loveables, it was especially the killer bathroom that had me salivating! Straight into my inspiration folder it went for my big bathroom -redo project when we move houses in the future! Clean, streamlined, white and grey, that much I knew I loved, but those brass fixtures, oh those brass fixtures… It’s Sunday, I’m in love! Pictures via JJ Locations
The greyer it gets outside, the dreamier I get inside. I know I keep blabbing on and on about white and black and all that monochrome love of mine, (I should probably rename this blog 50 shades of white obsessed), and this time, but deco dreaming has skipped an entire room and has zoomed in on a single item, a pristine, clean and lush white sofa. As much as I love my current slate grey version (kids + leather sofa = dream team!), I cannot help myself dreaming away about angelic white arrangements, with black and grey touches, completely flooded by gorgeous sunlight streaming in through windows as grand as can be! One day, my dreams will come true! Inspiration courtesy of Pinterest
Kids and a white decor, that sounds like asking for trouble! And still, I just cannot stop dreaming about painting our (not so fantastic, boring beige-brown) wooden floors upstairs (and downstairs if I’m completely honest) a beautiful shade of white! To just jump in, feet first, re-do the entire upper floor and just not think about my wee ones painting and drawing on that pristine white canvas, getting Play Doh stuck in every nook and cranny or black tire marks from just about every Lego vehicle racing from one end of the room to the other. The more I think about, white really is the way to go! Might just have to wait a few more years till after those toddler years, and just be happy dreaming and Pinterest-ing till then….
Every woman needs a little hideaway spot just for themselves, to unwind after a long stressfull day, re-energize and replenish yourself or to just have a little moment to prepare yourself for the day ahead. In an ideal world, I would live a block away from the beach so that I could nip out for 5 minutes every day, but hey, unfortunately we can’t have it all… Another thing I’ve been dreaming about to have for a long, long time is my very own vanity table, a little spot in the bedroom reserved just for me to put my make up on, take it off, experiment a little with new products or just fiff faff about as wel beauty-obsessed bloggers like to do. Obviously, with my well known soft spot for Scandinavian design, a white colour scheme and clean lines, not just any dressing table would do (many vanities have been vetoed because too frilly, too girly or too “bweugh”). An ancillary unit that would look equally striking as my make up haven as a …
This morning’s Instagram picture says it all, when it comes to what I dream about what I’d love my ideal home interior to look like, soft tones of grey and a hint of colour keep popping up in an otherwise almost virgin-esqye white surrounding. A place to come home to after a day of meetings and where you can just mentally disconnect from all the stress, where everything just oozes calmth. For now, with two toddlers running, jumping and meddling around, it will best remain a moodboard and smorgasbord of ideas, but the moment my two little mosters stop spilling their food and drinks everywhere, this post will be prime inspiration for that major interior overhaul!
