There’s just something about fig trees that speaks to me. Not only do I find them to be pretty and love the subtle greenery they give to the room, but I also think they give a soothing and peaceful vibe to any room. I don’t have any in my house right now, because sadly, my husband doesn’t believe in the whole plants in the house thing. Don’t ask me why; that’s a story for another day. LOL. I can’t say that I throw in the towel on that one, because I know one day I will convince him again to bring at least one in.  We shall see, and whenever or whatever area it finds its way into the house, I will make sure to share the news with you. For now, see how pretty they look in these living spaces. Do you care for plants in your house or office? What do you think about “figgies”? Do share your thoughts with me. Off I go 🙂

Happy Wednesday lovelies, 

It’s almost the end of the week, and I hope you’ve made it fantastic one so far. My everlasting love for chic and outstanding decors is no news to you anymore… if you’ve been following my blog for a while, that is. I’ve been coming across stunning and swoon-worthy Spring outdoors or backyards decors a lot lately; and I wanted to share a few with you guys. These are simply gorgeous, and make entertaining perfect; and while they may not be budget-friendly – at least not to me at this moment – they’re definitely swoon-worthy an  worth setting a goal for. Check them out, and share your thoughts with me! XO

Hello everyone!

One thing I really love to do in Spring or Summer is entertaining family and friends. Either you’re having an outdoor or indoor gathering, it’s always a good idea to welcome your guests in style; and there are numerous and time-effective ways to decorate for the occasion without turning your house into an event center or giving yourself too much headache. 

         1- Have a bar cart and make it look pretty!  You can also use your kitchen counter if you don’t have a bar cart. You will need your party essentials : Beverages, Glasses, Kitchen gadgets like bottle openers, napkins, coasters, etc… Add a few decorative paper straws if you have them. Put some fresh lemons in a cute bowl and place it on the cart; this can add an instant color pop to your little set up! You can organize these items on a tray or put them directly on the cart if you’re using one. Last yet not least, add a touch of personality by using a pretty vase with some fresh flowers, for example or  anything decorative accent that you could think of, place  it on the cart… and voila!

2-  Presentation is always key! Use pretty and stylish servewares for your food and try to incorporate foods that will add color and interest to your setting. Pretty, fun and… edible 🙂 in a few words be creative and have fun!

It’s a new week, loves; and I hope you make it a great one! It’s all about Spring; and Spring decor has to be one of my favorite of them all! Any excuses to decorate or redecorate the house are welcome; and what a better time to freshen things up a bit than Spring!? These functional and simple decor ideas will brighten up any dull day. Enjoy!

1 – All Things Flower

Thank goodness for non-plain curtains. Blossom the bloom in the room by choosing colorful or prints curtains. Need an extra dose of flowers? Easy! You can never go wrong with fresh flowers to freshen things up even more. (Unless you or anyone in the house is allergic to them, of course)

2- Freshen Up The Wall

Wallpapers are fun and can really freshen-up a room instantly. With whatever theme you’re going for, just make sure it doesn’t clash with the rest of the décor in your room. My other suggestion will be to go for a peel-and-stick wallpaper option. They make the job easy and also give you the option to easily remove them when you decide it’s time to switch things up again.

3- Artwork Works

Don’t believe me? Take a look at these flower artworks! – A breath of fresh air.

4 – Green With Envy.

Bring the “greens” into your home. Okay, maybe not all of them. Whether it’s a plant, green decorative accents, or even green reupholstering dining chairs for a dramatic look, you will be sure to go from warm winter decor to bright and fresh spring affair.

5- Pretty And Soft Palettes

Sometimes, all you need is a pretty and soft palette such as a pastel paint on the wall to bring a breath of fresh air and peacefulness to the room. Go a little further by choosing a similar tone (but in deeper hues) chairs’ cushions for example or some pretty accents to bring everything together.

6- Blue Done Well

The blue in this room is so elegant and charming. If shopping for a blue couch is not an option, you can bring in any blueish small furniture or decorative pillows or accents. And who says you can’t match your decor with your outfit? When Fashion and decor meet…

7- Elegant With A Touch Of Green

“Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication” – When you see this living space only adorned with simple and beautiful plants which brings out the contrast against the shades of grey in this room,  you will understand why I quoted the great Leonardo Da Vinci.

8- Orange Is The New Black 

Well, let’s not get it twisted, friends… The only orange I’m talking about here is the one in this room 😉 ; and it can’t get any more springy than this.

9- Pretty Pink

Love Spring… and Pink? This room says it all! Hello Spring!

10- Pop Of Yellow

While this bedroom may seem a little too dark to my own taste, I do like the glam look, the soothing feel, and the subtle pop of yellow. I think it’s a nice example of a minimalist transformation. You loose nothing of your interiors decorating style, but still feel and enjoy the essence of the new season air by adding a subtle touch of color. Lively!

I hope you find this helpful. Take that challenge and dare spring-up your home or office! And if you need any help, send me a message;)

As always, thank you for stopping by.

XOXO

Spring may not be here yet, but we can definitely feel glimpses of it. When birds’ chirping start getting quite insistent and the fresh odor of blossom flowers are starting to hit our nostrils, then we realize mother nature is reminding our brains the need to refresh, reboot, and re-energize. And while we’re often ready for a fresh start, it’s usually not that easy to take actions and freshen up our surroundings, our mind and even our body. Well, these 5 simple tips should get you on the way to a fresh new home and self, if you don’t know where to start.

1 –  Clean, Pare Down, And De-clutter.

A clean house is a peaceful mind. Whether you like cleaning or not, you must take proper measures to ensure your house is clean if you want your home feeling refreshed, peaceful, and welcoming. In fact, you may need some deep-cleaning to welcome the warmer months if you don’t have the habit to clean periodically. If you have an aversion to household chores, you may want to hire someone to do the job for you. While cleaning your house is a vital priority for a refreshed mind and home, de-clutering your overflowing closets and any cluttered surfaces will take your clean-slate to the next level. Give any of these cluttered spaces a quick assessment and sell, donate, or give away anything you’re not using or will likely not be using.

2- Air It Out .

After a long winter season with a stagnant, harshly dry air, there’s no better way to inviting Spring into your home by kicking the dust and dirt out and bringing in a breeze of fresh air! Open all the windows or turn on the fans if you have them to aid circulation aeration; then turn the heat off, and go for an hour run or errands. Trust me, you will come back to a refreshed and re-energized house.

3- Change Winter Decor And Linens To Spring Ones

If you love swapping decors in between seasons, you’re probably using sheepskin, fur, heavy wool and acrylic blankets, pillow covers, trows etc, in the cold weather. Well, now it’s the perfect occasion to swap winter flannel and duvet and all other heavy wool back to less heavy options. 

4- Bring Some Flowers And Trees In!

Flowers and trees can instantly transform your decor and give a breeze of fresh air and cheerful atmosphere to any home. We don’t really care if there’s snow on the ground… Bring Spring into your home with beautiful and sweet lilacs or hyacinths, blossom cherries, cheerful daffodil, fig-tree, magnolia, or muscari… Endless options you have here, depending on your preferences and what you can tolerate, health wise.

5- Transition Your Wardrobe

We can’t talk Spring without touching on Spring Fashion, can’t we? Well, nothing says “Hello Spring” better than brightly hues clothes and accessories and colorful prints and patterns! And since Spring weather is very unpredictable, meaning the weather can change drastically from one day to another (Hello allergies), while storing away, the heaviest and bulkiest coats, sweaters, wools and boots etc… You should keep in mind that the weather can swing from Still-Winter to almost-Summer temps. That been said, layering should be your best bet. Now, it’s time to make room for your trench coats, blazers, cardigans, lightweight sweaters, scarves and leather jackets.

Bonus: Detox your body.

 

One more thing I personally like to do, to welcome Spring is cleanse my body. Detox juice is a great way to refresh and reboost your mind, body, and energy! You can make your own or get store-made ones if you prefer. I will share some of my favorite detox Juice with you soon… 😉
