Some ideas for X-mas next year....

This year I had some new ideas for decoration in the house during X-mas... This deco is not traditional at all but looks lovely in a winter interior ready for the holidays.
Christmas tree made with a wooden board, nails and a string of wool. You can hang some decoration on the nails

stick with X-mas lights and deco
Every year you receive a lot of postcards during holiday season, put them together  in a tree shape

If you don't have enough room for a christmas tree, use a large vase with some twigs and decorate them 

These new decoration ideas made my house look very "Christmasy" and making it made me happy

Lots of inspiration at Vitra home...

Last weekend I've been to Vitra home. You can find all the Vitra products combined in an great building that was designed by Herzog & de Meuron http://www.vitra.com/nl-nl/campus/vitrahaus/ . The designers of this interior created one of the most inspiring houses and styling ideas.

I loved It, it made me very happy, hope it makes you happy too...  Enjoy

One of the greatest things was, that you could buy almost everything showed in the house. Most of the items are Vitra design, some others can be bought at the museum shop. This is the best showroom ever...

Styling tips and tricks..

Last week I did this photo styling. 

This image shows an idea to decorate your table when you have a lot of guests over for a dinner party.

Every little vase with flowers (empty bottle) has a name tag. Find your name so you know where to sit.

The bright colors and mix of flowers make me very happy...

Its a great idea to use for a wedding or dinner party for the holidays.
