Coffee... one of the few things I can't live without... I think this is the first word - after 'thank you' and 'hi' - that I learn in every language. So this week we decided to salute to 'coffee' together with KlassDSign in the form of our weekly post.
I just need to have coffee whereever I go, each and every day. :) And interestingly enough it is one thing that you call 'coffee' differently in every country, but with the name the kind of coffee changes as well. We drink kávé, the Italians espresso, or cappucino; the people in Paris - cafe' latte, in the Nordic countries they have - kahvi or kaffe; the Germans ask for a - wiener kaffee, caffe', our Chech neighbours drink káva, and the cute Dutch guys (who I loooooove so much) have koffie on the way to work in the mornings. And if you want something special in Istambul order a kahve.
For me coffee has a warm, relaxing and comforting sense that brings you joy, happiness and some waking up. :) The whole process of making and drinking a coffee is kind of ritual and special at the same time. It gives me the feeling of celebration every time I have my favorite coffee, it doesn't matter that I make it myself at home or I order one in a coffee shop.
Of course I want to take it with me to my home as well. I wanna feel celebration and that special mood that coffee gives me, so I'll have a coffee-brown sofa or carpet in my living room and I'll wear a dark cappucino colored dress.
P.S.: I am going out to grab a coffee now... :) XX

We see them every day, we use them for so many things - tigthing up our clothes, our hair, our shoes for sure or to decorate a bouquet. Buttons we know well. We learn as a child how to close and open things with buttons. Buttons can bring you a fortune as well, if you think of Benjamin Button. Ohhhh, he is gorgeous!!!! :)
I'd like to share some ideas with you what else you could do with a beautiful ribbon or some buttons here...
P.S.: Be sure you mix and match as many ribbons and buttons as possible! Look around your grandmother's sewing box for treasures!

If you think tulle is only for weddings... Think again! It looks great on you during weekdays too, it can make a perfect lamp shade, decoration for your bicycle, earring, or even an ornament for your front door. Tulle is a super-feminine fabric, so if you need to emphasize your feminine side, just put on some tulle! Carrie would do the same... :)
P.S.: Don't forget tulle on your wedding day either! X

It seems endless, it seems dark, it seems cold and it seems wild. We love it or we hate it, but for sure we can't control it.
'Rain is what the thunder brings
For the first time I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I'm not
I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top'
P.S.: So, don't be affraid to get wet! Go out and dance in the rain!

This week we drink, smell, paint, wear, enjoy, ride, live, glue, read and most importantly LOVE some fresh mint together with KlassDSign.
Come and 'mint love' away with us!
P.S.: You should definitely try the fresh mint kiss... anywhere... not necessarily on a bridge! XX

In the time of Internet, online media, e-books, e-designs, e-styling, e-everything... I still love the newspapers. I love that moment, when you approach the newspaper stand and can feel the smell of them... Nothing compares to it! :) I love to carry it around - under my arms, like a purse - with a coffee in my hand. So classy! :) or old-school, I don't care... it is great to read a newspaper!
And not just to read it! You can now decorate your home with them. After reading the newspaper, not to waste it, you just glue to the walls! Or make a wall-art in a frame, or make a bouquet out of it. And if you rather decorate yourself with it... then make an envelope bag or even a beautiful dress from the newspaper. Be creative, it is much more fun to use it for something then throw it to the trash.
My personal favorite is the newspaper-covered sofa.
P.S.: Don't forget to enjoy reading it first! :)

What are the colors of summer? Sometimes it's yellow, blue, red, pink, orange, green... all kinds of green, white, baby pink, coral, sand, and so on. I think there are thousands of colors you can see during summer.
And they are beautiful! Take a look around and try to see the colors of summer! You will be amazed! ...when you wake up and look out the window, when you walk to your work or having lunch in the nearest park, moreover when you are on holiday, at the beach, watching the sun disappearing at the horizon. ...or just anytime you feel like it... look around and try to see the colors of summer!
P.S. And don't forget to take some photos as well! :)

The coast of Provence has some the earliest known sites of human habitation in Europe. Primitive stone tools dated to 1 to 1.05 million years BC were found in this beautiful area. Of course this is not the reason we've chosen 'Provence' as our weekly 'Together with KlassDSign' post.
It is a place of so many beauties... There are the mountains, the wide rivers, the amazing Calanques (the series of narrow inlets in the coastline), those purple, lavender fields, the Festival of Cannes, the smells and colors of Nice, the luxury of Monaco, the fantastic wine and cheese and most importantly the unmistakable Provencian style. That is everywhere - in the houses inside and outside, in the decoration of a table, on the streets, at a picnic and so on.
Provence is definitely the place where you cannot be anything, but happy and relaxed. Maybe the lavender is responsible for this, or the strong red wines, or the scent of provencian herbs... who knows.
But for sure a place everybody has to visit at least once in a lifetime!
P.S: Bon Voyage! :) XX

I love braids. They give you a romantic look, even a feeling. When I have a braid in my hair, I feeeeeeeeeeeel the love :) ...and I wanna fly back to the hippie era...
These are the newest and trendiest braids you could do to achieve a romantic, hippie look.
P.S.: Don't forget to put some flowers in your hair! :)
