Home tour – apartment in Manhattan

Home tour | I really like the accessible furnishings in this stylish apartment in Manhattan. Especially how old and new are mixed in a completely fresh and modern way.

Every of these photos has  something totally unexpected that caught my eye, yet the whole space feels totally cohesive.

Recycled Christmas trends of 2012

Recycled and upcycled is one the Christmas trends of 2012. The nice thing about this trend is that you can tweak the decor to look rustic, modern, minimalist and traditional or whichever style you prefer. Some of my favorite recycled and upcycled DIY ideas are to use vintage books or note sheets to make a Christmas chain, ornaments or advent calendar. This trend allows you to get creative with your trash; the result becomes personal, unique and original!
