Do you feel like floor to ceiling curtains can work for any space?
In small rooms can be risky unless they are really thin and let the light pass trough them. If that’s the case have light walls as well. In bigger rooms you won’t have that problem, but thin and airy curtains are in my opinion always the best solution.
If you had lots of money and everything was possible where would you live and what kind of house would you build?
I don’t have a straight answer for that. Places people consider to be paradise are most of the times difficult for someone to live in full time. (I’ve been reading a lot about Hawaii and I’m loving the culture of that state but the bugs situation would be a huge source of anxiety for me, since I can’t even see pictures of spiders, cockroaches, millipedes… So you see how obvious paradise destinations may not be that perfect after all.)
I also believe dream houses have a lot to do with its surroundings like people, entertainment, nature and special emotional links you may have to those places. And the world is too big to commit to just one place or one style, right? :)
Humm… Some people will want to kill me after this, but here we go: Lady Gaga, Leonardo Dicaprio, Ben Affleck and Angelina Jolie. No matter how great they are in their professional fields I just can’t stand them. *kill me now, I’m ready* (Or let’s hate together ^_^)
I went through your archives while waiting at the airport. The people sitting around me looked, too, out of the corner of their eyes. By the time I was called to board, they were full-out watching as if it were a movie.
I want to print this message, frame it and put in on my wall. Thank you! ❤
I don't mean to offend anyone but sometimes people ask you stuff and I'm like "wtf, was that really a question? Can't you notice that doesn't make sense or that you are contradicting yourself?", but you always answer them with such politeness! Well done girl!
I just found your blog and I love it. I have a question though. What's up with all the white walls? I'm re-doing my bedroom and wanted to paint my walls something new. However, your blog, and pretty much every other blog on tumblr features mostly rooms with white walls, especially bedrooms. They look unfinished, or like renters live there. Is this just a passing trend for interior designs?
my blog is heavily influenced by Scandinavian design where white is used as a foundation because it reflects the light (specially important given the shortness of their days in the north of Europe) and also allows furniture and architecture details to shine.
Bedrooms in particular should calm you, so using bold colours on the walls is only advised on the headboard wall (because you don’t see it when in bed and therefore it won’t monopolize the space while being the focus when you get into the room).
I’m not sure if I should call it a trend but there’s definitely an eclectic style that seems to have many followers and white is just perfect to enhance the pieces you use to design a room while giving a sense of coherence creating the illusion of bigger and brighter spaces.
And finally, if rooms look unfinished that’s because they were not designed properly, and that’s why Scandinavians are the best, they do it so well and make it look effortlessly when in reality is pretty challenging to find that balance.
I hope this changes your perspective on white. And remember that there’s not just only one type of white, there are warmer and colder tones. Your paint shop can advice you on that.
I love all of your Asian inspired/vintage Asian art. Where do you think I could find similar pieces for my home?
I have no idea. It depends a lot of where you live. Some stores do sell objects inspired by asian/african art if it’s part of their collections. Try Zara Home and Area (or Habitat) ‘cause they normally have that sort of items. You can always look in street markets, but once again it depends a lot of where you live.
