Turquoise is such a beautiful and powerful color. It’s a very interesting shade, the result of combining green and blue but it doesn’t really share much with those colors. It has a strong character and, if used properly, it can completely change the way your home looks like. You don’t have to redecorate your home and turn it all turquoise. A small accessory placed in a strategic space can have a great impact.
For example, this lovely dining area is part of a spacious open floor plan. The whole room is defined by simplicity and neutral colors. The décor is very light and serene. The small decorative planter placed on the dining table features a b old and vibrant shade of turquoi
It seems like I've hit the age where all of my friends are having weddings, or at least attending a lot of other friend's weddings. One couple I know have at least 5 they are attending this summer, and I will be attending 3. I can't lie that it is fun to imagine how I would decorate an outdoor wedding.
How romantic is this? It can also be done easily and with a small budget. Personally, I think the money involved in weddings has gotten so out of hand, I always have more fun at weddings that feel more like small, intimate parties.
I would definitely love a barn wedding!

The folks at Zengerine are also awesome enough to give one lucky reader a gift of $75.00! All you have to do to enter is answer some questions in the widget below! (Each question you answer
Though there are so many combinations of colors that represent something or go so well together I will always be attracted to that of blue and yellow.+The combination of blue and yellow will always bring a big smile on my face reminding me of my unforgettable Swedish experience. The colors represent the national flag of Sweden and for me they represent the nicest combination of colors.
Although the following DIY project has not much in common with Sweden besides the combination of colors used it touched one of my sensitive strings. Actually the project it refers to a personalized DIY Union Jack Dresser. The Union Jack represents the national flag of United Kingdom and its current desi

Contemporary furniture no longer aims at impressing with the help of small details, accessories and decorations. The designer’s attention shifted towards the shape and the design itself. The simplicity and minimalism have become an important rule these days. So pieces such as the S Table have a very simple design and yet they are intriguing.The S Table was designed by Xavier Lust for MDF Italia. It’s a very stylish table with a design composed of a round or oval top and an S-shaped twisted stand, the element that also gave its name.
The shape of the base with its delicate form and curves is the star of this design. It was created by placing the mix in a mold and then finishing it

Berries are good and tasty and people like them. They love their taste and also the way they look. So why not use them as a source of inspiration for the design of a mirror? Well, this beautiful Sue Wright Mirror is inspired by those tiny and colourful wild berries and they are used here as decoration for the frame of a mirror. The mirror looks great with this design and this is actually what makes it so appealing in the first place. Without them it would be nothing more than another boring round mirror.
This round mirror does look like the sunburst mirror that I like so much, but it is a bit more different and closer to nature, just the way I prefer it to be. The mirror is delicate a
