Electic Loft of Alina Preciado - Brooklyn

The 2,000 square foot loft mixes old and new pieces together. It has a very urban touch and its interior sourcing both classic factory style & modern furniture. A lot of these findings she picked up from her travels all over the world (Japan, Spain, Middle East).

Bedrooms - ordinary, neutral, friendly

There are a lot of ways to design your bedroom. In this post i want to show some minimalistic and modern ones. I like the combination of some wooden furniture or a bare concret wall with a white cover at most. Single-colored covers convey calmness and purity in a very special way. That´s the best condition for a deep sleep and pleasent dreams!

New Living Room - Gallery Wall

In  Home Tour: Our Living Room i already mentioned that i needed a change in my living room.
Now, two month later i am finaly able to share the modifications. In general i wanted to get rid of the purple and blue on the walls and replace it with some neutral and light colors. I decided to paint the walls in white and stone and to set a course with gold accessories. The first thing that came in mind was a white Gallery Wall with a golden wall clock and a golden monogram.

This was my first draft, painted in seconds during some mind mapping with my boyfriend.

And that´s the transformation: 
The golden wall clock costs about 80 €, available here and the monogram is created by myself. See the DIY instruction here. The frames are from Ikea, called RIBBA and did cost ~ 100€ altogether.

DIY - Monogram

Step one: Buy a simple cardboard letter in your favourite arts and crafts supply store (altogether ~ 10€)

Urban jungle in Antwerp

Wilbert and his city garden. As a student he used to live at this place and did spent his summers restoring it.
“I loved living here. I used to rent a room upstairs and I really enjoyed helping out the previous owners with their renovation work. They’re wonderful people and amazing garden architects and they thought me so much about aesthetics and how to nurture plants. When they told me they wanted to sell the house, me and my girlfriends Johanna didn’t doubt for a second. We bought it immediately. It feels good to be back.”
