Design Week- part 1

As I mentioned in the previous post, I went with some friends to Milan to attend the Design Week. It was a last minute decision to go, but I'm really happy that I went, we saw lots of excellent things, and some very inspiring designs!

This year there is a lot more emphasis on warmer colors, lots of wood, beige and gray tones.


Also many natural elements...



The bathrooms were one of my favorite things... they have started to be treated like normal rooms, they are becoming more spacious and have regular materials, and are no longer tiny spaces with the typical tiles... some designs look really excellent!





This time we had the opportunity to look around beyond the main exhibitions and visit the city a bit more! There were many additional smaller design-related showrooms, and of course the city is beautiful. More on the next part!

Restaurant "Głodomory" and plans for Milan trip

Hello! This week was a bit shorter than normal, because I'm flying to Milan to attend the Design Week! There are always lots of interesting things to see and learn there, it's always very inspiring!

We put the guide we mentioned in the previous post to good use and went to the restaurant Głodomory!



It is really small, but with a great interior!

And some very tasty typical polish food

Meanwhile I'm packed and ready to go!

See you soon!

My busy week and my home work space :)

Spring is finally coming! Since now I'm self-employed, I am working at home and I spend a lot of time in our small bedroom, that has now become my office! And even though I'm still really busy sometimes, I don't have such a strict work schedule, and I can manage my time in a way that gives me the opportunity to visit friends more often!

Some trees look great this time of the year!



This is now my office! I have to make sure it is comfortable, since I'm spending so much time here!

And of course I'm always in good company - sometimes noisy! :)

And I spend some more time with friends! I went to the bar on the 40th floor the Marriot Hotel, that has a great view over the whole city centre...

... I had some excellent sushi on a restaurant called Izumi Sushi with a very colourful ceiling!

And I also met with my friend Ula and had some great Indian food at a restaurant called Mandala Klub!

Now that the weather is getting warmer we have to enjoy and go out more often! Ze also got a very interesting guidebook of Warsaw - http://ogarnijmiasto.com.pl/?page_id=58 - with lots of great suggestions of places to visit, restaurants and bars, we are curious to see everything! We've been living here for 5 years and we still know so little about the city!

Meanwhile I'm still working hard on my website, and I hope to show it to you soon!

Ikea Metod

Today I was in a conference in IKEA where they were showing a new line of kitchen furniture to be revealed next month. They showed 6 different style variations, each one with many potential arrangements... now their kitchens are not so standard anymore, with these new pieces you can do a lot of things you couldn't before.

We had some nice gifts, including a wood block usb stick!




This was my favorite style, called Vedding+Tutemo, really young, modern and colorful!


I had a great time, and I ate some great IKEA food! Anybody else loves swedish meatballs? :)

Life change and presents from friends

I recently had a big life change - I quit my job, and I am planning on starting my own company! On my last day of work, my friends who I worked with for several years made me a surprise and gave me some gifts!

A card and some accessories from a shop which I really like!





Meanwhile we are all patiently awaiting for spring to arrive! And with this new adventure there is a lot of work to do, let's hope everything goes well... keep your fingers crossed! First thing - make a website for the new company... I hope I'll be able to share it with you soon!

Black and White decorations

Now that the cold winter is behind us, we wanted to do some small changes to the living room, with some high contrast elements... so we bought a carpet, some pillows and a blanket!








We would really like to have more places to sit in front of the sofa, but we can't decide what we want! An armchair? A chaise lounge? A beanbag? There are so many options that we can't make up our minds. We'll get there, eventually!

Future plans for our balcony

Today I would like to share some ideas I have for our balcony, once the winter is over and the weather starts to improve. It's based on what we already have, but with some more elements to try to give it a little bit more privacy.



These are some of the elements I had in mind...




And some visualizations to give an idea of how it would look like.

Now all that's left is warm weather! We are patiently waiting for it... :)
