Hi, I'm Jessica from Stay at Home-ista. I blog about life as a stay at home mom, which can cover a lot of bases! Mostly I focus on home design (you'll get to see the house below), food, and parenting
tips like how to survive long car rides:)
When Olga asked me if I would be interested in guest posting, I jumped for joy! It has been
a labor of love designing, building and now decorating this house, and I absolutely love to show it off.
My husband and I met in architecture school at Harvard, so when the opportunity presented itself to build a house of our own we jumped at the chance. Of course, that "jump" lasted 4 years from start to finish,
but now that it is done, I know every detail of the house and love every bit of it. Come on in.
That's the view from our deck. The view was the main reason we bought this property, it's just stunning to wake up everyday to see the San Francisco Bay, and sunsets over the Golden Gate bridge are beyond words. Also, part of the deal of my husband agreeing to live super-close to my family was that we could have a view. There you go.
I found this magnificent house in my beloved Mix and Chic and it immediately got my attention.
So many elements to love in this house! From the gorgeous rug and painting to the turquoise
dining chairs and the unique silver coffee table (and I could go on and on...) this house shows
a great and unique personality that refers to a fairy-tale little palace!
I imagine this could be Alice's home in the modern days!
Hi, everyone!! I'm Abigail from Smitten By Abigail and I am so psyched that Olga has asked me to do a guest post on her fabulous blog! This is my very first solo guest post and I'm a wee bit nervous, but so excited to meet and share with all of you!
I admit, I used to be a bit of a DIY snob - Didn't care for it, would rather have paid someone else to do all the "dirty work" for me. Then... the economy took a turn for the worse. It was a challenge, at first, but it turns out, I loooooooove DIYing. I've always loved the arts and interior decorating, so it was only natural that I should have started my projects way before I did. Better late than never, I say!
So here are a few of my transformations from my room makeover binge these last few months. All within a budget, of course.
Yellow is fun! Yellow is happy! Yellow is spring and Easter!
I love yellow, it's my favorite color! And when it's combined with grey, then I'm in heaven!
Have you ever considered painting a wall yellow or adding a sofa, or just adding yellow pops
of color with accessories? No? Hmmm... take a look at these photos...
who knows.... maybe you'll change your mind!
Wouldn't you just love to take your breakfast or morning coffee in that nook, reading your favorite
book or magazine? I absolutely would!
This is an apartment in Berlin of only 54sq.m. with a very wise use of every inch of this home. The space under the kitchen bench is used for storage for example. How clever is that?
The fact that those big windows allow the sunshine to pass through and lighten up the whole room,
Did you know that Greeks are very much into crafts?
I've previously mentioned some of those amazing fellow bloggers here and here,
and now I'd like you to meet a new one. It's a young couple living at the north of Greece and
they're both very creative. Their blog is called KaPa. Me without you... tea without a bisquit!
How lovable is this name? Well, take a look at what they did with a plain twig that they came
across during their walk in nature. I'll let the photos do most of the talking!

"The Princess and the pea" is a fairytale that tells of a prince who was trying -in vain- to find the
right princess to marry with. When a a girl knocked on his door on a rainy night, looking for shelter,
claiming that she's a princess, his mother tested her by putting a pea among the
Love each and every detail of this house! Everything seems to be very carefully picked up.
Classic and modern furniture meet to showcase a glorious result.
Bright pops of colors on a white scheme that tie so good together.
Hardwood floors all over the place and mix of textures adds to the space the warmth
needed to feel cozy and comfy.
And the kitchen... oh.. I would kill for that kitchen!
And did you notice the roof over the dining table? No? Well go check it out... it's a glass roof! *sigh*
Years ago, neutral was often synonymous with boring. But today, that is definitely not the case.
In today's day and age of home decor, when everything seems to be bold and brightly colored, it can be refreshing to return to the basics of neutral colors. In this article, we will look at how to successfully use neutrals to bring harmony to your living room as well as set it apart with elegance that never goes out of style.
Hey guys I need your help today!
Remember the arm chair that I was telling you about here which is in our living room and I hate?
Well it is high time to re-upholster it don't you think? So I made a research for what type of fabric to use
and I decided I wanted leather since I want a modern piece in my living room.
After a lot of thought (I'm very indecisive) I came up with the following samples and
now I can't really make up my mind on which one.
Just a girl who loves decoration, design, good makeovers and beautiful homes. Happy with a brush and a can of paint in hands when she can transform a piece of furniture or a wall in an instant! Please make yourself at home, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy your stay!
