Homebar Inspiration

Inspo Board

1234

I am in this particular phase of summer where everyone around me is  wrapping up summertime and planning for their projects next year. Although we are still in vacation, I can feel things slowing down a little bit and moving towards what I like to call “The September Vibe”.

I have been catching up with a bunch of friends lately, telling eachother our vacation and it has been great. And for those little gathering parties, I have to say, a good homebar is a must!

I decided to create this inspiration board to share how I would personally style mine. As you may have seen in other posts, I love a good minimalist decoration. So really, sharing my must haves in a inspo board was kind of hard, but I stumbled upon all these pictures which really are a good reflection of what you would be able see on top of my homebar.

Here are my personal must haves:

Nice Furniture: I found this bar stool on Chairish.com, a website that is specialized in vintage furniture. They have gorgeous pieces that I highly invite you to check out.

Fresh Plants: Having some fresh plants, flowers OR – a single jumbo leaf in a vase. I saw that on a recent post from apairandasparediy.com and I absolutely loved it. It is just so simple, chic and it really is not that hard to find.

Drinks and Snacks: If I was to entertain a small group or just a friend or two, I would definitely chill around the bar with a bottle of wine, cheese, some nuts and fresh fruit. Because I mean you know.. you have to treat yourself 😉

Cosy Lighting: Another must-have for me are those long hanging lights. I think they dress up the room so nicely, and if you want a more cosy room, turning all the bigger lights off and leaving these on, gives such a nice atmosphere.

How would you personally style your home bar?

Søstrene Grene – Danish Goodies

I went to Copenhagen a few months ago for an amzing trip where I got to see some very good friends of mine.

It was my first time there and in Scandinavia in general. I absolutely LOVED it. I cannot stop talking about how everything is great over there since I came back.

A post about the trip (or maybe a whole series – let me know if you would be interested) should be up soon.

Anyway, while I was there I got the opportunity of going to this amazing store Søstrene Grene (I know. Don’t even try to pronounce it. Ha!). For those of you who might not know it you may know the store Tiger and it is basically the same idea. A bunch of very affordable cute little things for the house (some useful decoration and toys and some… very random but so gorgeous items).

So I went to their website yesterday to relive a little how nice everything was over there and I stumbled upon some videos! As you might have understood by now, I am a visual person, I love watching videos. And let me tell you, the videos are absolutely amazing, so entertaining, useful, easy to watch. They remind me a lot of the Leaf.tv website that I wrote about here.

And BEFORE you start wondering how you will be able to understand videos from a Danish company – remember they are smart. They know their language is tough and the international market is huge. You will understand everything there. #takforengelsk 🙂

Over there you will be able to find short videos about DIY projects and Food!

Concrete DIY

I have been making some small creative projects (mainly painting) for the last couple months. But lately I have been stumbling upon these gorgeous concrete DIYs that I think make amazing pieces of furniture – which is perfect as I am redoing some decor in the house.

I hope I’ll be making some of these very soon!  I’ll let you the links below in case you are interested as well. Have you ever tried one of these?

DIY Studs and Flat Pins

Hi guys!

As you know I love sharing my favorite DIY of the moment! 

A few days ago, I repinned this pic (and discovered this amazing blog at the same time), I think it is just so cute, versatile and seems to be lots of fun to make!

And once you get your studs/ flat pins, you can store them to create other cool projects later (or right away)!

Love this way of customizing a tee, gives a certain edge keeping the classy style.

Well, and I saw this board I absolutely fell in love. Love those studs around it! 

I am definitely making all these three projects! 

XOXO,
