Wish list | Home accessories

Or should I say covet list? That would certainly be more appropriate in this case... The chair from HAY is not an accessory per se, but it's been on my wish list for a while now, and I believe I'm not the only one if we consider the fact the online world is flooded with interiors that have at least one piece of furniture from HAY, and it's usually this chair. (My inner against-the-stream voice doesn't approve when something becomes too popular... Ah, well. That chair is brilliantly designed; it deserves all the attention it's been getting lately.) The golden feather and hand bookmarks from Tom Dixon are my favourite discovery at the moment.  I think they would make a great birthday/anniversary present.

Picture-perfect | Outdoor styling

This (and the beach) is all I can think about during summer months.  Pure indulgence... From minimalistic patios to terraces with lush tropical plants, here are the outdoors I'm in love with. You can find all the sources and more inspiration on my Pinterest board Gardens | Terraces | Landscape Design.  Enjoy!

Happy thoughts

Just like Peter Pan. Thinking about wonderful memories and looking forward to creating new ones is what makes me fly. These are old photos, but I love browsing through them from time to time... Back in 2011, when I wasn't precisely sure what the direction of this blog is going to be (I just knew I wanted it to be my creative visual diary), I made a post called Reminiscence with a few curated photos from this stunning island, but now I've decided to share more of them with you... Greece is one of my happy places.  I love Greek music, cuisine, history, language, landscape... Oh, that landscape... Heaven!  We've been all around Thassos, so if somebody wants to know more first-hand information about the island, feel free to write.

Wondrous creatures

It has been proved countless times that the best work imitates nature or comes from nature in some form, so...  May their fur, feathers, horns, shapes and patterns serve as an inspiration to you like they do to me, and may you always be in awe of this world. Have a blessed day, folks!
