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 :)
