House tour : An apartment that looks like a Gallery

Dear Unidentified friends, this is a Saturday night house tour dedicated to those who love Simple, to those who admire natural materials and finally to those who believe that less is definitely more. This minimalistic apartment is designed by the Architect Kasper Ronns. I love the table crude wooden table and the contrast between the bright walls and the wooden poles. What do you think? Is it "too empty" for you or do you also think that apartments like this one make life so much easier?

It's Friday, I'm in love with : A tiny camera

Maybe it's not the world's best high tech camera but this little tiny thing is so cute and If you buy it, you can take photos and videos (Photos: 1280x1024 Movies: 720x480 ), uses a MicroSD as a memory (up to 16GB) . It also has flash drive so you can easily plug it in your computer and save your clicks! You can buy it here for $49.95. What do you think? 

(Make the most of your camera; online colleges offer great photography classes).

It's Friday, I'm in love with a tiny camera!

Styling Recipe : Decorating with ladders

Happy luxury Thursday! Before the usual luxury house tour I want to share with you some news and a styling Recipe! As you already know, I've moved from Athens to London almost two months ago. The fact that you don't know is that I've found a really cute studio apartment in Maida Vale. I love it because it's unfurnished.  That means only one thing: decorating fever! The apartment is located in a classic Victorian building that is currently being refurbished. I've decided to share with you the whole decorating process and today I'll share the first part!
Decorating with ladders.
Due to the scaffolding outside our building I thought it might be a good idea to buy an old wooden ladder, dye it and use it as decoration in the new apartment.  I've collected a few pictures in order to show you some ideas.
Use a ladder instead of a boudoir. A different way to store your
jewelry and accessories.
The shoe ladder: I would only suggest this solution if your high heels are always clean
and away from your bed!
The Bathroom Ladder: Definitely yes! I love wood in the bathroom plus it's a great way to hang the towels!
Wall Art Ladder: A vintage almost destroyed ladder that is used as piece of art. A really special way to decorate your ladder.
The ladder in the background that hasn't absolutely anything on it. It still looks stylish.


What do you think? Would you add a ladder in your apartment? I found one on ebay for less than 4£!
Stay tuned for photos and updates!

Chair Wednesday : Plopp stool

The creator of Plopp stools is the Polish Designer Oskar Zieta for HAY. Plopp stools look like they're inflatable but they're not. They are made of hydro-formed metal and you can make one (or many!) yours from 310 . Check out his collection on his e-shop here.
 Zieta about his plopp stool "The result is a light construction which can be easily mass-customized at low production costs with well established techniques

What do you think? Check out the last house tour here and see the plopp stools placed in a wonderful apartment.

House tour: Scandinavian Design

I can't get enough of Scandinavian design. Seriously. I'm an addict. This apartment goes straight in the 'IwishIlivedthere' list. This apartment "includes" many famous furniture and pendants I've already shared with you and many that items that I will share you you in the future! I hope you remember and recognize the wooden Muuto lamp from this post or the Cherner dining chairs from this post.

Today is Chair Wednesday so I thought I could connect this post with the next one.

Did you notice the little yellow inflatable stool in the pictures? And another white one in the kitchen?

What do you think about it?

House tour : An Architect's Apartment

This stylish pad belongs to the Brazilian architect Mauricio Arruda and it's located in São Paulo. He managed to combine different styles, materials & colors and he succeed. Notice the unique dining table! I love the white crude walls and the light that comes from the big windows. So this is how an architect's apartment should look, don't you agree?

DIY Monday : Floating Vase

Happy DIY Monday to everybody! Winter time has officially started in London but I can't stop buying and thinking about flowers. They make a room look brighter, happier and vivid. This is a smart and easy DIY idea by Cupcakes and Cashmere, one of my favorite blogs. Take a look to her photo instructions to create the floating vase here.
I hope you're having a lovely Autumn,I'll see you all tomorrow with a 'you light up my Tuesday' post!
