Here there are some simple yet very chic decorations for your living room!

Meditation Room

Mmm.... It's time for meditation! Here it is a cozy room to help you relax after a tough day... Natural color in the walls, wood everywhere, a straw carpet, a mattress on the floor with big pillows, open windows to feel near the natural environment, light linen fabrics and plants around the room compose the ideal zen decoration!!!

Wise Words


The best room to spend your free time during Spring months, when nature is in its best time of the year and our body enjoy the warmth of sunrays after a really cold Winter... I love so much the yellow fabric of the sofa and the high candelabra which would be perfect in my living room too!!!

Suitcases II

Give life to your old suitcases and a good reason to exist by reusing them as decorative items into your house, so as to give the touch of another era in your space! I would love to use them as a side table in my living room or a bed side table in my bedroom....

Earthly Paradise

A private Villa in Vamizi island in Mazambique is waiting for us in order to offer us some days of total relaxation... I close my eyes and I travel to this heaven, designed by award-winning South-African architects, situated near the sea combining both luxury and isolation. I imagine myself laying in a sunbed, enjoying a refreshing juice and daydreaming while gazing the amazing turquoise water of the sea(photo 7 & 11).
Have you ever imagine that you could have an outdoor bathtub, in order to take your bath  while enjoying the natural surrounding and feel the breeze of the ocean? In Vamizi island everything is possible(photo 9)!!! 
Enjoy it my friends.... I 'm wishing you to have a wonderful weekend!!!

Repurposing Old Furniture

I 'm really in love with all those old classic consoles which are painted in a more modern or abstract way (as the console of the photo), in order to be a part of a contemporary or country home... They can be transformed in unique decorative pieces, according to the personality and the imagination of their owners! I have a similar repurposed furniture in my home and I am so proud of it, because I had the pleasure to give it  its new style by myself with the help of my father in some technical matters. I will show you my creation in a future post. It' s a promiss...

The fragrances of Spring

Today, my living room flooded by the sweet fragrances of lilacs... I love so much their aroma, as it brings to my mind sweet memories of past Easter days when I made with my mother big bouquets of lilacs and white lilies from our garden, in order to decorate our living room. So, yesterday when I visited my family home I couldn't resist making a similar bouquet of those lovely flowers for my home!!!

Kalo Ambeli Beach House

A stylish and tastfully decorated beach house builded in a gorgeous hillside setting overlooking the sea on the south coast of Serifos. Although it is secluded, it has a wonderful and unobstructed view of Milos and it is  just a 5 minute walk to the amazing sandy beach of Kalo Ambeli. It is a serene and bright house, builded according to the traditional Cycladic architecture... Bold stone walls coated with white plaster, blue wooden shutters and doors and beautiful ceilings paneled with wooden boards or canes and raw wooden beams. Although, the ornament of the house is its unique swimming pool which is designed to look like a sandy beach. I really love it! 
I would really like to spend a couple of days  right there, enjoying the beauties of the environment and gazing at this wonderful view while sunbathing near the pool...

Relaxing spot

This is exactly where I would like to spend my Friday evening.... A nice designed & well organised backyard   with a lot of plants and small trees, as the olive trees in the back of the built-in bench with the lovely linen cushion, hydrangeas, some roses planted in baskets, rosemarino and of course a fig tree. I like also the wood panneled walls, painted in beige hues and the cotto tiles on the floor which consist a neutral canvas that highlights the vivid green tones of the plants.  I imagine myself here with the company of some friends drinking a glass of moschato d'Asti, listening our favorite music and chit chating for hours or playing a board game.... What do you think about this backyard?

Callista Holiday House

In Paxos, an amazing Greek island of Ionian Sea, there is situated Callista House. A holiday house built in dry-stone and traditional materials yet with a contemporary feel is so stylish, cool, well-equipped and designed to maximise space and privacy. With its own infinity swimming pool and a delightful shaded terrace, Callista faces west and enjoys sea views and the spectacular Ionian sunsets.
