Art Gallery: Hotel Room by Vanya Milicevic

Hi,

You know sometimes, I hang out on Pinterest and stumble upon such nice boards, that I think they could be an art gallery.

The one I want to introduce you to today, was created by Vanya Milicevic (and you can explore her whole account – it is pretty perfect)

I found this board so interesting. She called it Hotel Room and gathered, well, hotel/bedroom pictures. What I thought was very interesting about the collection is that you could see the different atmospheres that one can feel while in a hotel room. I gathered my three favorite ones which are what I call, the Smart Moments (staying in your room to get ready for a meeting, read, study, work), the Cosy Moments (hanging out with your friends, enjoy a relaxing bath, laying down, wearing your most comfortable pj’s and jump onto a fresh made bed) and finally the more Sexy Moments (no explanation needed).

How to finally sleep well during those hot summer nights!

PicMonkey CollagePictures: *planete-deco.fr, *parachute.com (bedding),

*Have fresh crisp sheets
Is it me or do they ACTUALLY feel cooler?

* Spread lavender scents
They will sooth your mind like nothing else.

* Invest in an electric fan
This is key to have some cool air flowing in the bedroom (if you don’t have AC of course) and another tip is to have prepared the room beforehand by shutting the blinds during the day. This way the room will be fresh when it’s time to go to bed. Heard that leaving a wet towel drying throughout the day was very useful. Let me know if you test this!

* Wear some cute PJ’s
When I was younger I used to sleep with a big t-shirt when it was too hot. But you end up having way more fabric on you than you would have with a cute short and top ensemble.
Plus you’ll look amazing while you sleep which is always a plus, right? 😉

* Keep the tech away
It just adds in some heat. Instead of that, opt for a nice book or a magazine, or just note down your thoughts regarding that day and your plans for the day after (that’s what I have been doing – and I have been loving it – see instagram post here)!

* Reduce the lighting
To prepare for the night and start getting relaxed.

* Put on some smooth music
Same spirit – are you relaxed yet?

* Keep your little peaking out your cover sheets!
There you go, feeling the fresh air from the fan…

I think a big part of feeling less hot and overwhelmed during those very warm nights is really to calm down and make your whole system slow down.

So most of all, R-E-L-A-X

Decorate with what?!

Today’s Song!

Hi guys!

Today I will suggest to all of you an idea of decoration that you might have never thought of. But first let me contextualize this little story for you.

Relevant fact #1 – I have this huge white wall in front of my bed – don’t know what to do with it
Relevant fact #2 – Just found a little scarf with the American flag in one of my mom’s drawer (we all love to see the cute stuff our mothers own!)

So today, I was looking at that scarf.. it had such a squared shape, I was like.. is this a scarf? a flag? And to see if it was a flag, I put it against the wall.. and then…

Image

What if I used flags to decorate that big wall ?!!

 I think that’s a great idea, because the main problem that I have when trying to think about a piece of art or so to put on these walls is that I am afraid of getting tired of it.
But I’ve always loved travelling, be in contact with different cultures and of course english speaking countries! As you may know I am european but I love the USA and the UK.
The brand Gant characterizes itself like so: “Combines the traditional American style with an European flair“.

Image

Guys.. that’s me! And I think those countries kind of illustrate that as well. 🙂

Get inspired! Think about your country and/or countries that you like! Let’s share!

XOXO,

Boxwood Decor :))

Today’s Song!

Hello everyone! As you may know from previous posts (here and there), I am redoing my bedroom. I already said this in previsou post, I am going to stick with the colors I had before which are white and ivory. I love those light and classic colors. They give so much light and I never get tired of these colors. Then I want to add a lot of flowers to give natural and bright touches (especially because spring is coming!). So speaking about flowers and all that jazz, I wanted to introduce you to another very special decor detail that I absolutely LOVE. Boxwood!

I currently live in an appartment but I have a lot of boxwood in my garden back where  lived before college. I can’t resist.. I need boxwood touches somewhere in my flat… I think I am going to ROCK those ideas! What do you think? 😀

Today’s Song!

Hi guys!

I was strolling on bloglovin (completely obsessed – my ritual every night!) and find this very cool article on http://apairandasparediy.com. I definitely recommend that you check it out because it has some amazing posts.

I love that new concept of shelves decorating your rooms and not only have a practical end. I agree with that perspective.

I kept these two pictures from her site because I found them really cute:

Now talking about serious stuff! As you may know I’m doing the decoration of my bedroom. You may knw from my previous posts that I absolutely love white bedrooms but I think it is nice and girly to have some bright touches (see this post).

SO, I thinks I would put on those shelves, an R like the D you can see on the pic. I would put, a vase with some nice flowers as well, some cute books and fancy magazine, souvenirs from my trips, and some vintage cute objects. I may add a some pictures and inspiring quotes in nice frames.

What would you put on your cute shelves? Share the inpiration!

XOXO,

While decorating your bedroom/Workspace

Today’s Song!

While decorating your bedroom…

… Have a look at these amazing pictures!

Guys, as you know according to my schedule for P&F (here), you know that Tuesdays are for Lifestyle and Tips posts. Today I decided to post these gorgeous bedrooms that completely enchanted me and inspired me to do a little make over to my own one!

As you will be able to tell looking at the pictures that I selected, I really like girly, light and very simply decorated bedrooms.

I like girly bedrooms, but without too many pink. I like light colors but with some touches of bright colors. I like decoration but not too many/huge stuff, otherwise I get a bit tired of it.

I hope these pics will inspire you!

What is your favorite style while decorating your bedroom?

PS: I actually refer to some workspace elements, that’s because as a college student, I do study in my room! 😀

I HAD to share with you this post that I read yesterday… it-is-just-A-DREAM (btw, you should definitely check this website which is so so cool!)
