It was pretty bad so I removed the old upholstery…
I had to use glue to prevent chipping the base…
Then I used grey chalk paint I had left from another project and sealed it with wax…
I stapled the cover I made from leftover fabric…
Et voilà…. the stool is like new
Thanks for reading this short post.
This year I completely disregarded the Easter and am totally unprepared. Since I work in a coffee shop as a Barista (haven’t I told you that?) it may turn out that I will be working these days but as a designer, I was looking for some ideas for decorating the table for holidays. I gathered few inspirations for you that I find interesting and are a bit different from commonly used.
Whether you plan a dinner for 20 people or just meet some friends, I am sure you can find something for yourself among this inspirations and be creative with what you have already. Mix and match items, add few Easter themed items or tulips, daffodils or branches with young leaves to create this festive feeling.

Referring to the previous post about organising the house in style I went one step further and decided to organise my life a bit hence started a new job. I had to postpone my vision of becoming an Interior Designer and started a totally different career. I finally decided to adult at the age of 36.
It is hard to tell people that I am a successful designer and live in a rented house with no style at all because I barely can afford to pay the rent…
So that’s why I’ve been quiet for some time but now everything seems to settle and I hope to go back to blogging with a new plan and the new goals. In the meantime, I invite you to read my older posts like Texture In Interiors- Why Is It Important? or How To Mix And Match Patterns For Beginners and Choosing The Paint Colour. How To Do It Right?
Spring is usually a time when we clean our houses to let the fresh energy in and say goodbye to winter. We want to keep our home clean and organised so it is a good idea to make some changes in terms of extra storage space. In this post, I will show you how to make the most of your space in style.
Book Shelves Under The Window. Usually, space, where we have window sills, is going to waste. Why not use it for extra storage- it looks interesting and adds functionality to our room.
Repurpose Old Furniture. This old mailbox cabinet can be a perfect organiser in your craft room or home office. It adds an industrial feel and personality to it.
Small Shelves And Extra Hangers. They are perfect to hang small items, little organisers or expose interesting items like jewellery or other accessories.
Wire Baskets. If you have interesting items you can show them and keep them organised at the same time in baskets like this. There are a plethora of possibilities here because you can find them in different styles and colour. I would stay away from the chrome ones though as they are not very pretty.
Wooden Crates. They are perfect for storing larger items. They are nice as they are or can be painted or stacked to create shelving etc. You can ask at your local fruit and veg store or they can be bought on Amazon.
I wrote this post to give you some creative ideas to organise your homes and I hope the article was useful. Please note that it contains few affiliate links to similar products shown in the photos. I am on the organisation stage in my rented home as well so expect more of this type of posts. Are your houses organised or are they rather the creative messes like mine? I would like to know so please share some thoughts on this in the comments below.

Mothers are the most significant others in our lives. They give us unconditional love and are behind our successes. When we were children they were always happy (or at least pretended they liked them) with a handmade card or drawing which were far from a piece of art:)
Now when we are adults it would be nice to put some effort into choosing a perfect gift for our mothers. If you are looking for ideas for presents that you can purchase online I got you covered. Here’s my subjective list of perfect gifts that you will save you time because you can find them online. This article contains some affiliate links which means that if you make a purchase through them I will get small commission. The products I link here are the one I would consider myself when buying a present not only for my mum.
This were my personal favourite Mother’s Day gifts ideas that can be found online. I hope this post was helpful and I am curious what were your favourites from this list. Would you add something to it? Please leave me some comments below.

The term Boho is a short form of Bohemian which is defined as a someone who lives and acts freely, disregarding conventional rules, usually an artist or writer. It has its origin in 19th century France where some artists and poets rebelled against an institution controlling the art market- the Salon. This movement died at the beginning of 20th century but influenced later art like surrealism or music like punk rock.
Nowadays Boho chic in fashion and interiors is associated with free spirits like hippies, Gypsies, travellers and artists. This eclectic style has to express individuality and freedom. There is no rules here and you can be very creative decorating in Boho vibe.
Boho Chic Interiors
As there’s no rule and the style is as unique as a person utilising the space it is hard to define the style, but there are few characteristic elements of Boho chic. Combining few of them or even all creates Bohemian feeling in the room.
They remind us exotic places and travels
This technique uses different knots to produce textiles and decorations. There are tutorials available online that show how to create macrame decor like the pictured below.
If you play the guitar or any other instrument or paint incorporate your interest in your interior after all Boho chic is associated with art and free expression. This will be a perfect topic for a conversation when someone visit you 😉
In this style rugs are welcome even the old fashioned ones, patterned and vibrant- whatever you like.
Fairy Lights and Lanterns
There’s something magical and artistic about them, they create ambient atmosphere- a perfect background for good music and long night conversations.
Pattern and Colour
In Bohemian interiors there’s no rules how to mix and match patterns and colours be as creative as you want.
This decorative and romantic element is used commonly in Bohemian style interiors.
Succulents and cacti
They don’t need too much care and will survive without watering even if you travel a lot.
They are supposed to protect us from nightmares and are characteristic for Boho chic.
I hope that this article was helpful and inspired you to add a bit of Boho to your beautiful houses…Writing this post made me think of buying a camper and travel around the World… Maybe, at least, I will learn to play the guitar?
