The Cozy Guest Room

A recent deluge of out of town guests have been keeping me and my guest room busy. While I’m still working on the basics (ahem…nightstands! lamps!), I found this guest room checklist that has been acting as my long term inspiration:

I already have a few of these for guests: flowers, waste bin, scented candles, magazines, even snacks. What do you think? When you visit people, what would make the guest room more comfortable?

Suitcase to #Milan

Never stops, beautiful, inspiring, crowdy, fashion, food ,business and architecture – these are the words that can define Milan in all its perspectives. As one architect said that ” Milan was build for business, but Rome for people”, you could actually feel it when you are there. Even though the city is filled with loads of local and individual businesses, it makes it in a way special and you start loving it when you  walk on it’s roads. Architecture has its own chic and uniqueness that makes it shine even more.

Having a two week workshop in Pavia within an Architectural Competition, and having the chance travelling to Milan it was a huge experience and just wonderful days. Milan rises into you some kind of wildness or child that is kept inside you. Me and my friends escaped from the whole group for a bit and run away to see the main square. We knew there is something more to see there. Just for the record, those weeks we were in Milan, were very special because of the Carnival and Fashion Weeks. So you could only imagine how many people were attending fashion weeks and you can get the feeling. Getting back to our escape plan : reaching the main square we got amazed by the amount of fashionable people sitting eating Italian ice cream and enjoying sun and themselves. In that rush hours, time stopped for everybody and everyone was the same under the sun, loving it. It was magical. It was it – Milan. Love from the first sight.

Top 7 Why is awesome to be an Architect

It is always good to be inspired of the things you are doing.. and love about your professional career. So from all the beautiful things that are in this world in filed of architecture, I will list only top 7 Why is awesome to be an Architect. The awesomeness of architecture is in just loving it and so much enjoying it.

Always good to be an Architect

1: Plenty of time, because of various schedules of projects.
Apparently everyone get’s a lot of time while studying architecture and maybe some time when working. The schedules vary from month to month. Due to that, architects can have other favorite occupations..anything you can possibly think you can do. Creativity is always on the go and whether architects have time or not they are looking for inspiration everywhere and every time. So, for those who are not, be around architects cause you never know when you’ll participate to a very crazy inspired idea and quite enjoy it…

2: Rich Social life
Attending workshops, meetings and working on projects, you can meet a crazy amount of interesting people and create a very rich network. People working in art, architecture and engineering, IT, marketing and a couple of lawyers are usually people that surround architects. Not necessary to be talkative or shy, you are gonna be rich in amount of people you know anyway… If you are not the one to start the conversation, there are people that want to work with you and have your projects all the time.

3: World wide traveling
You or the company you are working with have projects with other countries?… Why not traveling around the world and discover new places and exciting cities… This is the beauty of it: Architecture does not stop growing and developing. Whether it is an old or brand new house, you can enjoy visiting them and taking the most method of building or designing it.

4: Loads of activities
Architects are involved in various meetings and attending galleries or projects, that make the daily planning activity look very busy… in a good way. Being busy helps to stop thinking and worrying about life problems and things and start enjoying life properly.

5: Surviving deadlines or?
Who said that deadlines should be so painful and hard. When you have the right people around you, you never feel the pressure time and actually quite enjoy it. Usually, pressure and the lack of time – grow excitement and adrenalin in humans body and make the happy cells function. Working on late nights, a good laugh is always there.

6: More projects – less Fitness
One more great thing about deadlines is that architects don’t need to go to fitness. Projects make architects loose weight and that is brilliant time to eat whatever your wish is…Thinking, thinking, thinking makes the brain work double and so the body burns more calories. So, deadlines could become very tasty for someone too…

7: Fashion on and off!
There are two good sides about fashion field of an architect. The first one is that architects should look amazing all the time in order to sell their projects to the clients. The plus is that architects look gorgeous no matter what.
The second one instead is that while working from home on the projects, for days and nights, architects have to wear comfy clothes as pajamas or a very large shirt. So loving going out with amazing outfits or loving your pajamas – find this under Architects Department!

That was my very own Top 7 Why is awesome to be an Architect. Hope you liked it and wait for your comments what makes you love so much about being whatever you are.
No matter what you are working with, there is always a delicious side of it…

Place for the best Winter Escape…

When you need a winter escape from everything you have been doing…
There is a small heaven located in the middle of nowhere but Isle of Mull, Scotland. The isle is so quiet and peaceful you will never believe. You can hear eagles looking for food and horses that are coming right in front of your window,see a deer and fluffy animals that makes you smile anyway. You can hear and feel everything that nature prepared to you. Jumping deer right in front of you car can’t happen in every daily life.Returning home for a stay in front of fire and a cup of cacao – might be a perfect ending of the day. Maybe the forgotten isle seems to you too far away from what you are expecting from your places to escape, but you might better find yourself in this magical and amazing isle than in a loud and full of people city.

Things are not going well and great all the time , but luckily there are places to escape and to refresh your self and your soul as Isle of Mull.

How to escape from your million thoughts

Happens that we have a hundred and million thoughts in the same time that we cannot stop them and are stressing us out.

Usually, working on your career, projects and having a personal life is a tricky and problematic part in nowadays life. You cannot stop thinking about how you should do something, what else is left to do and how you are going to deal with it in time . Especially when our emotions touch our souls.. than is even harder. Things continue to happen but they end and other are coming. After a while you realize you just passed through that time as a guest in your own wonderful life.
The surviving process from troubles makes it worse, having a secondary role in our own movie of life. And why should we carry thoughts and keep contemplating too much some time on them. Is it really worth it and is there a chance to combine it and to escape from our thoughts and just enjoy the moment?…

Do whatever makes you happy and enjoy it as much as you can. Don’t have to feel guilty that you stop forgetting problems for a second but joy the happy moment. Being free in your mind encourage to keep those amazing things in your life forever. Be with who makes you smile and never let anyone stop you from your great playful dance of life…
