Random Happy Home


Pin It

A lazy home is a happy home! Colors are clashing together; toys, potted plants and tiny things keep piling up everywhere; the cats look wonderfully furry against the cold weather outside. Lots and lots of good books to read. Friends are showing upon my doorstep at least twice a week for game nights, in spite of the happy mess. I couldn't ask for more :)



Above you can see my messy reading corner in the home office. It consists of a neutral bean bag and a pile of books and boxes. I love the way the patterns come together: the Ikea pillow, the traditional rug and the bicycle pattern of my DIY faux wallpaper. And since I bought lots of bulbs last October, we've had hyacinths blooming indoors all winter long :)



My kitty Anais in her favorite spot: next to the kitchen window, where little doves are nesting. On the kitchen shelf, take a peek at my expanding collection of spices and herbs. This little horsey thinks he is a unicorn - I've got a plan to add a small horn and make him into a real one...



Apart from trying out new recipes (involving lots of veggies and lentils), I've been secretly drawing new patterns. My friend Miguel encouraged me to doodle till I die. Now I never leave home without my sketchbook and it feels so good!



More random pics from the happy home: the orchid buds, feathered blue DIY box on my desk, more colors and pattern mixed in the bedroom (including another gorgeous traditional wool rug) and the whimsical owl gift bag, the inspiration for a future DIY project called "Free art for your walls". To be continued :)

    1. She is too cute, I can't resist her - and that why she is allowed to sit on that corner of the kitchen counter, only!

  6. Happy home is a very suitable headline! :D Lovely mix of shapes and colors! Like your green kettle, combined with the brown board (I think) and handsome Anais! Charming drawing on the wall and stylish wool rug! :)

    1. Lisa, the "brown board" on the kitchen wall is a piece of archaeology - it is the first wall paint of the apartment and I keep it visible like a painting :))))

    1. Thank you for the support, Danni! Don't laugh because some of my doodles may soon turn into posters on my gallery wall (a great way to get free art, right?)
