New plans for our small bedroom

Ever since I started working from home I gathered so many catalogs, documents and samples, that I already ran out of space in the room! And to make matters worse, one of our bookshelves fell down, and almost broke the printer! Fortunately nobody was hurt, but that was a good signal that we had to do something! So we came up with a shelf design that hopefully will help organize this mess!

On these images I used a wallpaper with some polygon art... I don't know the author, but I love this style of images, and maybe we can try to make something similar for real!

I tried to take advantage of the entire wall to maximize the usage of space, but at the same time I'm trying to not make this look too heavy, since the room itself is small.

We hope you like it! Now all we need is to have it made, and then we'll show you the results!

Our first publication!

Wow, our apartment was featured in a magazine! Some time ago we had two photo sessions in our apartment, and this is the result of the first one! We are really happy and honored that this magazine decided to do an article about us, and we hope some of you will get a chance to see it! It's already available in the stores, check it out!

This was great! Thank you to everyone involved, we are really flattered! We still don't know what will be the result of the second photo session we had, but when we do we will share it here! See you soon!

Hot summer days, and some new things have arrived!

It's summer, it's really warm, and lately things have been going slow, but we did get a few new pieces of furniture that we wanted for a very long time!

 The first one is this rocking chair in the same style as the dining room table chairs...

 ... and the second one was a new dining table! We saw a similar one in some website a long time ago and we really liked it, because it matched the style of the chairs. Unfortunately the size of the table was too small, so we actually ordered this one custom-made from a carpenter! 

Meanwhile the plants on our balcony have been growing... a LOT! And they make a really nice visual barrier, gives the balcony a bit more privacy, they make a nice relaxing sound when it's windy, and they look great! I'm only worried if they will survive the winter...

Have a great summer, see you soon!

New sofa covers and carpet

When we first made the plans for our apartment, we thought of having a white sofa, but ended up buying a grey one because we were afraid that the white one would get very dirty! Fortunately our sofa has changeable covers, and we heard that IKEA will stop selling this sofa model, so we got the white covers before they were gone! And so far, they are not getting very dirty!

The covers are actually very easy to change, and they are washable, so even if they get dirty, it should be ok!

We also ordered a grey carpet from a polish designer, we thought it would look better with the white sofa!

Of course our dogs had to immediately test it...

Two small things, but they really change the look of the living room! It's nice to do these visual changes from time to time.

We hope you liked it, see you soon!

Festiwal Dobrego Smaku in Łódź

This past weekend we went to Łódź for a friend's birthday party, but coincidentally there was an event happening in the city called Festiwal Dobrego Smaku which means something like "festival of good taste". Basically, every participating restaurant and cafe has a special tiny dish prepared for the event, so you go around the city and into various places tasting what they prepare, and in the end you vote!

We went to Spół Dzielnia, which has a great interior, and made a dish with rabbit and wheat rice...

We were also in a place called Lokal, where we had wild boar cooked in some very interesting way...

And then in this placed called Revelo, where we had a more traditional polish sausage and soup!

... and we finished with a lovely coffee and dessert!

We would have loved to keep going and try a lot of other places, but we were full!!! Anyway this was an excellent experience, we'll definitely do it again next year, and we highly recommend it - it's a great way to visit the city and eat delicious food!

A Trip to Brussels

We were gone for a while, because we've had a lot of work, and a couple of trips, so we've been spending very little time at home! But now we are finally back, and a lot of things have happened.

Let's start with a trip to Brussels, which was one of the awards we won in the Vasco Gala. It was given to us by Kreon (a sponsor of the competition), a brand of lighting products an accessories.

This was the group that travelled, and we saw some excellent projects that used Kreon lights!

One of these places was an architecture studio...

... and we also saw a really fantastic (and luxurious!) showcase apartment featuring a lot of Kreon lights!

This was the view from the apartment building, and in the ground floor - a Spa!!!

It was an amazing trip, we saw some excellent things, and we really thank Kreon for this award!

A new mirror for the bedroom

For a very long time we wanted to have a nice mirror for the make-up table in the bedroom, but as usual we couldn't really find anything that we liked (when we did find something it was usually too expensive!), and fit the style of our apartment, so we decided to make our own!

These are the "ingredients" - a wood panel, lights and fixtures, and some additional tools and electrical things!

First it was necessary to make holes for the lights...

... some simple electrical installation to connect everything...

... and finally we had to glue the mirror!

And this was the result!

It still needs some additional work, we have to find a way to hide all the wires and light fixtures on the back, but we are already quite happy with the result!
