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.

Never stop Fighting

Our life is similar to the kind of Spider Cobweb that is filled with multiple fibers. Fibers meant to be our ways in life, which seems to be a lot of them. There is never just one way, but various that you can actually pick from.  The whole integrity of ways sometime intersect  each over and you end up in the same point where you started. And all roads seem to be similar and not taking you anywhere. After not a long time rain is coming and is showering all around. You feel the heaviness of the drops that are the problems and density of the things and aims you had in the beginning of the road. Luckily we have got our Mr.Sunshine coming and spreading sparkles and light, where everything doesn’t seem so complicated but actually you start enjoying your life path and gain power for keep looking for the anything and everything you want. It seems pretty easy to let our selves down…and to leave as it is. But there is just one step to go away from this and  you decide when to make it. Never stop fighting and dreaming. If one road is closing, than take another one and never stop dreaming and losing focus on your goals, cause this defines you the most in the crowd.

Bjarke Ingels

He is a dreamer, he is a creator, and he is my inspiration. Everyone needs inspiration and people to get inspired from. Whether you are doing IT, Marketing or Engineering, you will find people that gives you power and strenght to keep working in your field with all your heart.
I decided to share thins link about Bjarke Ingels, a Danish Architect of our time, to everybody because he is a great person that gives you motivation to try things out.
What makes him extraordinary, that he is not just and brilliant architect with bold new design ideas, but as a person, his energy and his sense of excitement about the world is completely inspiring to be around, and that would make him successful in anything he is doing.
And taking a minute to think about his accomplishments in life, and that he has the same amount of hours we all have, makes me stronger believe that all is possible, and we can do better all the time.

Let “Once upon a time” start right now

There is NOW that we plan and DREAM about things to happen. And there is the TIME that we work for them as much as we can. But there comes a time when we get TIRED to fighting for them, and FORGET about our dreams, and close them in a box, and put them on a shelf far far away…
Since ONE DAY… and that day comes out of blue… and then we take it as a coincidence or a lucky thing that happen. Forgetting that actually that moment was THE ONE. The same one that we dreamed about years ago and fought for it.

I dedicate this diary article in reminding myself and all others that dreams are worth fighting for. Dreams are worth praying, working and waiting for. Dreams are unforgettable and makes us stronger and more courageous. Not all the dreams can come true, but the ones that become – give us strength to believe in something more and something BIG. If you are one from those ambitious persons, than the golden price is going to come later with a lot of excitement.

It is not bad to dream. But do we set big goals?… Or we try ourselves as less as possible to keep our faith strong. Not always we need to play safe. Why not accept challenges and see what happens. Dream big and think big about yourself and your dreams. Keep alive what you have in your mind and soul and never give up.

Let “Once upon a time” start right now… xoxo

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.

And who knew that in the middle of nowhere, called Isle of Mull, you can get you so much power and wish for a beautiful life. 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. You can get healed and see nature miracles in unexpected ways…

Deers in LOVE

When you see everyday not a human being but a deer.. you feel nature more than any time you have ever felt.

Middle of nowhere
And what else can make you have a new start , refresh .. than crazy wind coming from the sea and blowing all the bad things that happen. It is said that the wind blows away troubles and bring alive happy moments.. who knows..
