Sunday Morning Tales

I 'd really love to pass some days in a log cabin like this, situated in a snowy mountain village… There is nothing best than spending those days far away from the city centre, in a cozy place which will help you free your mind from the everyday problems! 
Have a wonderful Sunday my friends!

Christmas Outdoor Decoration

This is the ideal Christmas outdoor lounge for those who don't care about the cold weather… We create the most romantic Christmas atmosphere with twinkle lights and many many candles in beautiful lanterns and of course fur blankets and hot red wine with seasonings in order to keep warm ourselves!!!                                                                    

Merry Christmas

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: 
The presence of a happy family all wrapped up 
in each other!
I wish you to have a really wonderful time amongst 
your loved ones and believe in the magic of Christmas! 
May your days be merry and bright...

Love you all!!!

Wise Words

A home perfectly decorated for Christmas

I really adored this living room from the first sight ! It's so perfectly decorated for my favorite season of the year…of course Christmas!!! I love the enormous illuminated christmas tree, filled with hundreds of twinkle lights that looks so magestic during the night and the double sided stone fireplace with its inspired decoration. 
And...of course I believe in Santa (photo 1 & 5)!!! :) I 'm waiting for my gifts!
I imagine myself hanging out on that cozy leather couch, enjoying the fireplace's warmth and the atmospheric light of the christmas tree, drinking some hot aromatic gluhwein!

Sunday Morning Tales

It's only a few days for Christmas and everything around us are beautifully decorated with lovely christmas ornaments and festive twinkle lights!!! Oh… I love so much twinkle lights!!! 
I can't think nothing better than a walk on the city centre late in the afternoon in order to admire the decorated roads and shops and then gathering near a cozy fireplace with good company for drinking some hot rakomelo (hot raki with honey and cinammon)!

Fluffy Living Rooms

As the weather becomes colder and colder each day, we all have the need for create a cozy and warm atmosphere inside our homes! I really love the warmth offered in a living room by the use of sheep/cow skins or fluffy long-haired handmade blankets used as carpets (I have a red one in my living room). If you want to add some extra coziness  into your space, you can put a piece of faux fur on your sofa and add some cushions, covered with faux fur too or some knitted warm covers, maybe handmade by yourselves! Believe me... you will transform your living room into a warmth paradise for endless hours of relaxation!!!

French Farmhouse

Today, we are going to visit a reconstructed French farmhouse, in Dordogne which is owned by a British couple who live here with their two daughters. They tried hard to maintain the original character of the construction! The walls and beamed ceilings are original while the fireplaces and stone floors were reconstructed to blend in the original features. 
As concern as the decoration, the owners chose to equip their house with cozy off-white sofas and armchairs, combined with old rustic furniture found in the local market and fur carpets in the floor for more warmth! 
In the kitchen there is a touch of modern in the rustic background, by the use of inox and plastic.... I believe that they perfectly macht each other!!! In the other hand, in the bedrooms' atmosphere there is so much romance by the use of the old metalic beds!
My favorite nook of the house is the room with the stove... I imagined myself sitting in that comfortable leather armchair (photo no5) near the warmth of the stove and drinking a cup of hot chocolate while gazing the landscape from the balcony doors. Just amazing!!!
