Today's five happy inspirations are the ingredients of a little interior styling fairy tale told by - well, myself. It is a story without a theatrical pretense, without surplus phrases or literary embellishments. It is a plain story of visual stimuli that generate a quick idea of a happy home. Let me tell you the short story.
Deep in February I'm starting to feel the fatigue of ongoing grey and dusky days. So I keep thinking that while we're not able to change the weather outside, we can create a brighter home. I'm thinking of an all white room with a white, soft sofa against the wall and a stark blue art photography of a beach scene on the ocean (1) that would be prolonged with blue cushions on the sofa. The holiday feeling can be extended to the bathroom with a funky seaside shower curtain (2) and a few nautical details. Apart from blue hues, warm and sunny yellow is a colour to add summer to any season. Why not think of an unusual way and place to inject yellow? Like on hangers (3). Ever thought of that?
Oh well, summer at home, it certainly adds a smile on my face. Even in the cramped metro on the way to work on a misty, grey day. Maybe I am that easy going due to one more fact: I sort of always have my ticket to Paris. Yup, that's it. And in the meantime I can work on my 'Paris-ness' by reading this book (4). But enough with my daydreaming. I should place back this glass of good red wine. Luckily, I have fantastic summery coasters (5) to host my glass. Here's to summer. And happy interiors.
