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?

Best Home Arrangements for Valentine’s Day

This week is the most waited or hated day in the whole world, Valentine’s Day. Talking about this day, you will always find 4 categories of people: people in love looking to celebrate it, people not having a partner and stressing out on this day, positive thinking people – not having anyone but celebrating it anyway with friends, and haters of this day – also celebrating it. So basically, everyone’s organizing some interesting events until that day as well as on it.

Here I come with couple of home ideas for your little home parties with the girls, or some ideas for a romantic night for your lover. On Valentines Day you don’t want to overdecorate the room and the house, better less and giving a sense of a  designing look. However you are thinking about this romantic day, let’s make it and try to remember all the good times and loving moments on Valentines Day, if not for yourself – than make someone else happy.

First things first. If you are arranging a fancy party somewhere than a good sign decoration would be suitable for it. You think you have time for this, than try to crafting a heart or writing on the panel  or poster some sweet words.  Showing off a bit in front the room or place the event will be held – will bring smiles and it will come as a first discussion in the conversation.

Crafted Heart

If you are not so much into crafting than you can buy a Valentine’s Red Door Wreath, that looks very fancy and you can keep it for a while more.

Valentines Day Door Wreath

The cheapest way to decorate  is using whatever you have in the house and replace it or a bit change it. If you are a candle fan, why not using them for Valentines Day. Just grab whatever candles you have and redecorate them for this special romantic occasion. Add some red ribbons and hearts and voila, one set is done. Set them on a plate or something and arrange where the dinner or the fest is going to be held.

Candles

Preparing for a dinner party with the girls or pairs, than a gorgeous looking table will be enough for the whole night event. Keep it simple and add some small decorations that you hand made. If you are not red color lover than there is some good ideas for holding an amazing romantic dinner table.

Non red color - Valentines Day Dinner Table

Going completely anti – red color, than craft some hearts from your old magazines and stick them to each other hanging from above the ceiling.

Hanging Heart

“Love” letters are in fashion all the time. You can color yourself and make them colorful or any pattern you prefer. The best thing in letters is that you can use them on the wall, or table, or anything or anywhere you have a wish to use.  Another advantage about letters – no need to specially use red color for them, cause they send love from their meaning anyway. Just be creative.

Love letters

And the last words from your Valentine… Valentine’s Day is not only for couples but for all people in the world. Love should be spread all over and don’t be afraid of trying new things and use your own crafty ideas. Even you are not so good at it, a hand made gift or decoration will bring happiness and more love in the air. Make it happen and let’s enjoy love day not only on 14th of February, but all the year long.

Valentines Wishes

Always Yours

Suitcase to Beijing #3Day – Must See The Nest

The Nest is one brilliant construction that take your breathe away. You wanna shout, jump, run and feel it on your skin when seeing it. Only taking a minute and thinking how many great moments in Olympic history did happen there, and what a massive structure needed to be build for it – levels it to one of the most wonderful buildings in the world.

The platform area where The Nest is situated has a great view to Swimming Pool,Beijing. You can walk on the platform for several minutes and enjoy the sunset, people and the awesomeness of architects and urban planner of that place.

Design Starts Here!

Never stop thinking and creating what you think. Always there is time for inspiration and motivation. Start with a simple line.. and than continue developing that line until you see something more. Never be afraid experiencing something that nobody did. Let it be Art.. Design and Beauty in the World…

Everybody needs Design

Everybody needs design no matter they are doing. Design thinking is all the great ideas and creative solutions came up in our minds and brought together to make better things in this world. Design thinking is not a liability but a strength.
If you are only thinking, than you are not doing. And you have to do in order to know. And you have to know in order to think better…
