Striped Nursery – So chic!

by

Hello World!

First of all, I apologize it has taken me so long between one post and another lately… last weeks have been pretty crazy, and I’ve been really busy with other major projects I will be shortly sharing with you all!

Today I would love to share some ideas about decorating the nursery… with striped walls!

I’ve always been thinking that a striped wall can add a special allure to the whole room, like a romantic mood if it comes in pastel colors or a funky vibe if it features bright and pop colors. We’re obviously talking about a … Read more...

My Paintings for my daughter’s nursery

by

Diapositiva1

 

As promised, I’m showing today how I decided to decorate the walls in my daughter’s nursery… with Disney characters and lots of bright colors!! At first, my idea was to go for mural paintings directly, realized with acrylics colors on the bare walls. But then I thought that maybe painting on canvases would be a better idea, first because I’m more confident with oil colors (they dry much slower, you are allowed to work much calmer) and then also because I didn’t feel comfortable with the idea of leaving my paintings behind one day, if we will perhaps move … Read more...

DIY Belt for kids upcycling mommy’s old scarf!

by

Diapositiva1Hello everyone!!
Today I want to guide you through a super easy tutorial to make a DIY belt for your daughter starting from that old scarf you’ve not been using for ages! Ready? It’s fun and quick!

Diapositiva2I used an old silk scarf that belonged to my mom, but it definitely looks TOO “vintage” for me and I never actually wear it. Yet, I love the white polka dots on the deep blue fabric, and I thought it could be perfect as a belt for my skinny toddler, whose denim shorts are always too large, no matter the size!

Wall Decor with Decals on Plates

Everyday is a journey, and the journey itself is Home.

– Matsuo Basho –

When we first moved in, I decided I would decorate the walls of my new home with something unique and quite unordinary (see also this tutorial for a Heart-Shaped Picture frame). While I was searching for inspiration here and there, I found the amazing possibilities of Decal paper, an easy tool to customize objects made out of plastics, glass, wax, wood, metal, cardboard, or, as in my case here, ceramics.

I’ve always liked the idea of using plates in pretty arrangements as decoration for the … Read more...

Inspire your weekend: Disney Dream Portrait Series

by

Annie Leibovitz is one of the most creative and talented photographers alive. When you see one of her shots you can’t help feeling like you’re part of the scene too, and in my opinion this is the greatest gift of all for an artist.

Enchanting the spectator so as to make him feel part of the masterpiece himself.

Since 2007, Annie has been collaborating with Disney in a series of ads to promote Disney Parks “Year of a Million Dreams”. The portraits in this series feature Hollywood celebs in Disney fairy tale scenes… and they’re AMAZING!!!
