Today I've a very fun and beautiful blog to send some love to. You will be so inspired by her beautiful taken pictures. I like the name also of her blog. It's so easy to remember that it could be a crime if you forget it. Let's show some love to OH HEY! BLOG (seriously, don't you like the name?). The creative soul behind it is the lovely Megan and she's doing this all while still having a full-time job. It's crazy, but as you can see, so very possible to have an awesome blog. My dear Megan, I salute you. So everybody...go on..go OH HEY her on her blog.
I'm back with another "Get the Look", but this time we are getting the look from a very cozy studio in Barcelona, Spain. I found this studio while strolling on Airbnb and found it really simple, clean but still feels cozy. When traveling with two people (including yourself), you don't need lots of space. You would be more outdoors anyway. So let's take a look how we could get this easy look at home.
I love the way the outdoor patio is decorated. Super simple and it really brings me to ideas for my own patio at home. The wooden floor gives the outdoor a warm feeling. It's in contrast with the all white floor from the inside. By opening the curtains the warm feeling from the wooden floor will follow through inside. I love the neutral colors, the white and grey. Always a great combination.
To add some color into the space, try a colorful rug.

How do you like the look? It's an easy and simple way to decorate. For a better look at the studio click here.
Sometimes you just have the urge to sit hours and pin all the cutest images ever. And that is kind of what I do when I'm staring in front of me. So instead to just glaze in thin air, I get on Pinterest and go crazy. These are my latest pins.
It's been a while that I gave some love to a blog out there. So today searching for one that inspired me I found this lovely and oh so inspiring blog which has the most beautiful styling photographs. I'm sending some love today to Sandra from Little Upside Down Cake. If you are into a blog that shows you beautiful pictures about styling and the beautiful city of Lisbon, I suggest you head over there asap.
And for your Friday Weeekend Action, I suggest you try something new, because....
Have a great weekend, guys!
They say before you start to work, always organize your desk area first and clean it up. You would have a better overview from all your stuff and can concentrate much better when so. I do have a lot on my desk right, so this gave me a great reason to organize my stuff around and make it clearer.
One thing they all have in common, is that there is a plant or flower on there desk. It really brings color and life to the desk. Did you like these ideas? How does your desktop looks like?
I'm going to change the MPI concept a bit. Holly from Decor8 launch a very cool idea to post every Monday your mood board idea on Instagram with the hashtag #decor8monday. So I wanted to combine my lovely pins with the mood board I make. So today I have a orange mood. Orange is like yellow, a very happy color. So here below is my mood board for today.
I'm loving the pins I found in combination with my mood board. Lets start with the flower arrangement. I have a love for flowers, which I can't express to much, because my husband doesn't like the smell of flowers (weird man, I've said it once already). But the combination of the pink, yellow, green with the orange is so lovely. Second...beside the blue door that screams "I'm totally awesome", that painted wooden orange/white floor is so colorful and creative, you can't get bored in a space like that. Third...I'm ready for a party, aren't you?! Everyday is a celebration right?! The gold glitter rounds make the orange (and pink) stand out. Love it!! Fourth...what better way to bring color in your all white, basic color room by adding a huge painted or portrait with lots of color?! It pops up from the wall.
So if you ever in need for some color, orange is really a happy color to bring into the space, If you are on instagram, don't forget to participate with the hashtag #decor8monday. Be inspired by others. That is always a good thing.

Hi guys...I know right?! Last week was a no-show from me and the weeks before I wasn't really feeling much creative for posting every day and my apologies for that. Facebook page had some changes last week and you could also see some snaps on my Instagram. Hope you are following me there, always fun. I had a bit of a rough week last week and had to make a game changer decision. I always wanted to be completely on my own and was working for that for the past year, but last week I had the decision to make to quit my full-time job. It really wasn't an easy one to take, as I was working there for the past (almost) 11 years. I started working there when I came back to the island of Curacao and just finished my studies in the Netherlands. I've learned a lot and I've grown to love different aspects from this field of architecture. I'm very grateful for that and will always be. But it was the right moment and I'm proud of myself. I don't know what's for me in the future, but I think it will consists of lots creative moments. It's also a great feeling, when you have a support system for when you make a decision like this.
I'm exploring new ventures to be creative in and as you could have seen on my Facebookpage and Instagram, I'm doing styling and product photography and I had a blast with it. Doing that opened doors to others loving the work I did, so I'm excited to see what more there is on that field. I'm also working on my new website, so will keep you posted on that also. Hope you'll keep following me and reading my blog for fun, inspirational stuff based on architecture, interior design, traveling and so much more. Have you ever had this experience? Please share with me below in the comments section.
As you might already know, I love Instagram. That is where I found this lovely store, Gather Home + Lifestyle. I might just ask them if I can move in and make this my home. The name says it all. This shop is a great place where you can find unique pieces from artisans from around the united states.
I've never been to Chicago, so I think it's about time to head over there to visit and say two thumbs up to the brains behind this store, who's is Kristen. She's a former visual merchandiser who is looking to introduce a more hand curated shop in the neighborhood of Wicker Park.
The whole setup of the store is very much organized that it will be so easy to shop and find your pieces to buy. Loving the exposed brickwall in combination with the hard wooden floor. Combining the rest of the walls with a light color, making the space more airy and bigger. The color palette of the pieces are very basic color natural, which also brings calmness in the place. But spurring it up with very green plants. That is the pop of the color in here. Very lovely. Have you ever been there?
It's Thursday Travel and it's my day off. Actually it's a national day off. This is the last one for this year. It's Flag day, so no working for us today. I'm going to take a drive to anywhere and enjoy my day off. I decided to make it a long weekend, so tomorrow I'll be off work also. Such a breather!!! The shoot I was suppose to have last Sunday, was moved for tomorrow. I'm excited for that one.
After a hectic midweek, with tensions from the JCI competition, which if you follow me on my social media sources, I didn't win. So I'm happy to take a break this weekend from work and all craziness and relax in the weekend.
This busted mini van is such a keeper. If I could exchange my car, I would so get one of these. It makes you want to take a road trip to anywhere. Get together some cool friends or just you and your love and hit the highway.
So, I'm going to leave it to that. Have a lovely day and I'll see you back here on Monday.
