How to create your personal retreat at home

By Posted on 0 Comments1min read4529 views

While practicing social distancing at home, we know that summer vacation plans are off the table for a while. But the good news is that we can do a lot more than just dream about a holiday on a Greek island like Mykonos. There are plenty of ways to easily incorporate the Mediterranean chic into our homes.

The Mediteranean summer house look

Natural materials, such as marble and clay, Cycladic sculptures, and rustic ceramic vessels seamlessly blend traditional and contemporary interior. If the flower markets in your neighborhood are still closed, you can cut some seasonal branches on your next stroll outside to fill your vessels with life.

Getting my home ready for fall

By Posted on 0 Comments1min read5653 views
What a journey every single room in our house has been on since we moved in. It’s such an exciting process and it feels like I elevate my taste and my understanding of design with every item that comes (and goes). Every time I’m „done“ with a room I come up with 5 new things that could be improved.

However, this fall something is different. I’m really starting to feel home with everything being kind of complete, so I’ve had the time to think about the actual decor instead of just moving furniture back and forth.

Fall Home Decor Pampas Grass Gucci Diptyque

As you already know, I’m not getting too literal with my decor. Meaning I don’t have to necessarily place a bunch of pumpkins on the front porch. Instead, I went for a makeover to make this place feel warmer and cozier. I moved the blue Jonathan Adler chairs to the office, replaced the throw pillows and decorated with my favorite candles and pampas grass. I toned everything down by choosing a very neutral color palette, without getting too minimalistic or boring.

Here are the things that helped me transitioning my decor to fall:

Pampas grass

Nothing says fall like a chic vase of pampas grass! Use a bundle of dried grass in a tall vase of your choice for a lovely, textured silhouette.
I remember bringing some pampas grass from our holidays in Italy many years back. To my surprise, it survived the journey back to Germany pretty well. So they are really long-lasting if you want them to. By the end of the season just wrap the pampas grass in some paper and keep it somewhere dry, so you can reach out for it next fall.
My go to source for pampas grass is Etsy, for example ForLoveOfPampas or MilandaBoutique

Scented Candles

I don’t know about you guys, but I love nothing more than cozying up at home and light a few candles when it’s getting cold outside.

Diptyque candles are one of my favorites and their mystic and glamourous fragrances set the perfect mood for snuggly evenings at home.
And guess what? Diptyque was founded by an interior designer (Christiane Gautrot), a painter (Desmond Knox-Leet), and a theatre director & set designer (Yves Coueslant), which well explains the elegant product design of Diptyque’s assortment.

My favorite scents currently are: Oranger (smells like orange punch on a Christmas market), Ambre (spices and wood!) and Diptyque’s Oyédo (yuzu and herbs: refreshing and spicy).

DIY Project
Elevate your Interior with Panel Molding

By Posted on 1 Comment1min read3104 views

My living room is quite dark, thanks to several huge trees in front of the big window. Therefore neither fancy wallpaper nor wall color is an option because it would take away more of the room’s light. A great way to achieve a sophisticated look with plain-white walls is to apply panel molding.

I’ve started the project right before Christmas and ordered different kinds of polyurethane molding samples. This helped me to figure out the right size and shape for my desired look.

Now that the detailed planning could begin, I’ve measured the wall and made a quick sketch to calculate the length of each panel. I’ve got everything online and this is what my shopping list looked like:

  • panel molding
  • miter hand saw
  • acryl
  • panel molding glue

Now I just had to saw each panel and attach them to the wall which was surprisingly easy. I’ve left a space of 8cm to the wall and between each of the panels. For the final touchup, you can use acryl to fix all the edges and gaps between wall and panel moldings.
