Interior Favourites

If you've been following my blog for a while then you probably know about my obsession with beautiful, small and cozy apartments with white walls, lots of wood and splashes of color. Here are some photos of different places that I have recently found and because they are all very similar I think a separate post for each of them might be way too much for you. (You can see more of each apartment if you click on the photos).

I love the idea of having a chair instead of a bedside table. Especially an old wooden one or one that's been painted in a bright color. The seat has to be completely flat though, otherwise it won't be very comfortable for this purpose.

This is just so cute and unique! I am not sure how I would feel in such small space but I love the shelves on the wall. Reminds me a little of the fortresses I "built" as a kid using my mom's sheets, lol.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I want a brick wall like the one above (or one painted in white). I am pretty sure they didn't use bricks like these when they built my apartment though. But I absolutely love it in combination with white furniture.

Did you notice the cute metal basket on the floor? I love this idea for keeping my favourite books and blanket close to the sofa.

Ah, those doors!

Is it just me or the comic drawing looks so cool in this kitchen? I love mixing different styles when it comes to art.

The tiny flowers by the window make all the difference, don't they?

Hello, everyone!

I guess I should start with "Happy New Year!" I hope everyone had a kick-ass start of 2011 and I wish you all to have the most amazing year, filled with beautiful moments. I can't even begin to tell you how much I missed you all and how many times I started writing this post and left it unfinished and then started again from the beginning. It's hard writing again after this long pause, kind of like talking to an old friend you haven't seen in ages. But oh, well, it was about time, wasn't it?

I am having time off the uni right now because I finished my project (only one this semester, yay!) and took all my exams. It's the first time in years that I've had some time off, except for the summer break and I won't be back at the uni until mid February, so this feels quite wonderful.

Perhaps one of the things worth mentioning that has happened in the past few months is that I started eating healthy. I met this lovely nutritionist/trainer and she started helping me eat better and exercise more. It feels wonderful and the results are quite shocking! Plus she is such a sweetheart. I mean who would even expect that they would get beautifully packaged homemade cookies for Christmas from their trainer? I know a lot of you try to eat healthy and cook healthy meals for your families, so here's a link to her blog where she has amazing recipes (don't worry, all of them are in English).

I saw a ted talk a while ago, saying that you shouldn't share your New Years resolutions with others because you may not end up keeping them after that. But if I had to list a few things I wouldn't mind doing in 2011 it will probably be eat healthy, exercise more, be more organized and meet with people more. I must say that I've been going out much more lately and I'd like to keep it that way. I've spent way too much time at home working on projects and writing blogs instead of just going out and living life. I really hope I'll find a way to fit all of these things in 24hrs this year.

Any resolutions you would like to share?
