A Cute and Easy DIY Mouse Pad


Hi guys, and welcome back. Today I`m sharing easy project to spruce up your home office, or cute and original gift for a new school year. If you need ideas for affordable and chic home office in just 5 easy steps, you can check this blog post

Sometimes it`s really hard for me to get to work and sit in front of the computer for hours but, if I'm surrounded by things that are lovely and inspire me, I will certainly be more productive. So this is why I always try to refine my work space details and make them appealing to the eye. Mouse pad is definitely one of the little things that are always close to me, so I want to change it and make it cute and fun.

Are you in love with your mouse pad? I really hate mine, it`s old and ugly and really not in my style. So, let’s change that, in 10 minutes! As I said before, it`s quick and easy project with just a few things you probably already have. 


Zdravo dragi moji i dobrodošli u novi post. Danas ćemo se zabaviti jednim jednostavnim projektom i ulepšati naš radni prostor. Ovo takođe može biti i originalan, simpatičan poklon nekome za početak nove školske godine. Ako vam nedostaje ideja kako da uredite svoju radni prostor - kućni office u samo 5 jednostavnih koraka, svakako pogledajte ovaj post

Ponekad mi je zaista teško da se nateram da radim i sedim dugo za računarom, ali ako sam okružena stvarima koje me raduju i inspirišu, sigurno ću biti i mnogo produktivnija. Zato se uvek trudim da svoj radni prostor oplemenim sitnicama koje su privlačne za oko. Podloga za miš je svakako jedna od sitnica koje su uvek blizu mene i zato želim da je promenim i učinim dopadljivom.

A sada pogledajte svoju podlogu za miša... da li je volite? Ja moju zaista mrzim jer je stara i ružna i nimalo ne odražava moj stil. Zašto je ne bismo promenili kada je to moguće za samo 10 minuta? Kao što sam rekla, ovaj projekat je brz i jednostavan i zahteva samo par stvarčica koje verovatno već imate kod kuće.
You`ll need:

1. Piece of plastic (or any material you have on hand)
2. Cute scrapbook paper or fabric
3. Glue or decoupage glue and glue gun
4. Clear varnish
5. Scissors
6. Decorative pom pom ribbon or lace

Materijal:

1. Parče plastike (ili drugog materijala koji vam je dostupan)
2. Dezenirani papir ili tkanina
3. Lepak, lepak za dekupaž i pištolj za vrući lepak
4. Providni lak
5. Makaze
6. Dekorativna pom pom traka ili neka druga ukrasna traka (čipka)

Tutorial:

First, apply glue on the plastic (or other material you chose) and glue your scrapbook paper on top and trim the edges.
Apply a coat of decoupage glue on top and let dry.
After everything is completely dry, apply a coat (or two) of clear varnish. Let dry completely.
Finally with a hot glue gun add a decorative trim and your new and cute mouse pad is finished!! How easy was that!?

Tutorijal:

Prvo nanesite sloj lepka (ili lepka za dekupaž) na plastiku, pažljivo zalepite ukrasni papir i izravnajte ga da nema mehurića vazduha. Odsecite makazama višak papira.
Nanesite još jedan sloj lepka za dekupaž preko papira kako bi bio postojan i ostavite da se osuši.
Nakon što je sve suvo, nanesite sloj (ili dva) providnog laka. Ostavite da se potpuno osuši.
Na kraju, uz pomoć vrućeg lepka dodajte dekorativnu traku i vaša nova podloga za miša je gotova! Jednostavno, zar ne!?
Thanks so much for stopping by today, wishing you a great day! xoxo

5 Tips for Styling Your Shelves Like a Pro

White shelving styled with gold sculpture and books
Hi everyone, hope you`re having a great summer so far. If you are on vacation, have a great time! For the rest of us, here is one home project you can tackle in a day. 

Styling your bookshelves is so not as easy as it looks. Using books and lots of little things you collected over the time, can easily turn your shelves into a massive pile of trinket hoarding. I`m sure you`re tried to make it perfect, but it never have that designer look you really want! I have 5 great tips for styling your bookcase like a design pro. 

But before you start decorating, first declutter and start from scratch!!
shelf styling inspiration @aliciamlund
Use things you love

Your home should be a real reflection of you, and there’s no better place to showcase that than on your shelves! It`s important to use pieces that have sentimental value to you and speak to you, like objects from your travels, things that belongs to your family for decades, things you made yourself etc.  They also make a great conversational starter.

Mix old with new

There are so many amazing vintage, antique finds you can find really cheap, and they add so much character to your shelves and entire space. If you put them next to something modern and new, they will look even more amazing. 
Your apartment is begging you to try these Pinterest hacks
Stack on books and boxes

They will create various heights and add the dynamic to your shelves. You can use any book you have in house. If you don`t like the different colors of the books, just turn them backward so the spines aren’t facing the room. Boxes can be found in so many stores, or you can use beautiful antique and vintage jewelry boxes. One gold or brass box will add such a glamorous touch!
Many people are keen to have a place to display their prized possessions, but are uncertain when it comes to composition.
Use artwork

You can use paintings, photos, or sculptures to spruce up the space. Paintings or framed photos will make a perfect backdrop for smaller pieces you want to show. Even if you don`t want to spend money on paintings, you can try and paint something yourself (you can find my abstract painting here) or even frame your child’s artwork to showcase their talent. 
How To Style Your Shelves in 3 steps - Modern, Bright, & Pink
Don`t forget to bring in natural objects

Real of faux plants and flowers, terrariums (you can check mine here), corals, shells (I always bring mine from the vacations), pieces of wood, stones, antlers... the list could go on and on. They will bring new life to your shelves, add fresh, natural element and balance all the other things. 


Finally, don`t forget the most important part is to have fun mixing and matching items that fit your style and make you smile!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! What`s your favorite item on the shelf ?

5 Easy Steps To Spruce Up Your Bathroom

Old World, Mediterranean, Italian, Spanish & Tuscan Homes & Decor
Hi guys, and welcome back. In our cottage we had a big pipe damage in a main bathroom, so now, after the repair, it`s time to make it functional and beautiful again. So, I was researching lately to find the prefect ideas and tips for redecorating the bathroom and here are some I find the best.

1.Choose a color scheme
Gorgeous bathroom with marble counters
As always, I will suggest a neutral colors, like white, gray, taupe etc. They are timeless, elegant and always in style, and they work perfectly as a backdrop for any accent color you want to introduce. 

2.Floor Tile Patterns
Love the floors and dark walls with white subway
french bath
A patterned tile floor can take your room from simple to stunning. They will make so much impact in overall design and makes your bathroom fell glamorous and luxurious, like staying in some really nice hotel.

3.Use a wall as art
Instead of using tiles on all the bathroom walls, use a wallpaper, or stencil and paint, to make a huge impact. If you don`t want it to be overwhelming, chose one wall to do it, and let the rest do it justice.

4.Use real art on the walls
Many people don`t think art really belongs in the bathroom, but it is! A few black and white photos in a simple white, gold or silver frame will elevate the space and make it really special.

5.Splurge on a details

You don`t have to spend a huge amount of money on everything. Try to keep and reuse what you already have, like bathtub, sinks etc. With a nice coat of paint refresh your old furniture and save for the faucets, shower heads, towels, mirrors, chandelier, lamps and curtains. Chose details that will complement your color scheme, add a bit of color and sense of luxury.

Create an Airy Room/ Space to Breathe

Hi friends, and welcome back. Today I wanted to talk about something we often don`t pay enough attention, but it`s really important. It`s about how does it feel when you get home. After a long working hours, we all need a space where we can relax and feel good. An airy, open room can be like a breath of fresh air to your senses, so it's no wonder this trend of light, airy spaces is one that is here to stay. 
Airy rooms need to "breathe", and the way to achieve that is to have a lots of natural light and fresh air in the space. That is where windows comes in the picture and why it`s really important to choose and maintain them perfect.
When choosing windows, it is really important to choose ones that can provide us with a lots of natural light and fresh air. But, windows are so much more. They are also beautiful architectural detail and they can make such an impact in the space. Whether you like modern, minimal ones, or you just love classic and curvy, they will set the tone for your entire home, so think about it and make the right choice! A well-designed entryway makes a positive first impression and reveals the tone of the rest of the house. Unique windows will make your entrance really special, because they are also an entryway, for light and air. 
Also, it`s important to maintain windows nice and lovely if you want your house to look beautiful. Whether you’re renovating your home and want to get rid of unsightly window screens or need a window glass replacement due to broken glass, you will need a team of specialists which are highly skilled in this department. APEX/window werks is an Elk Grove located company that specializes in everything related to window and door repair and replacement. They has a specific page on their site where you can find service areas near you (if you are living in US) for any window repair you`ll need (insulated glass units, tempered glass, single-pane units, custom shaped glass replacement services, wood work repair etc.)
Finally, to wrap up this story, I must mention the window treatments, because they will make everything finished and perfect! A goal of beautiful window treatment is to install the elements which enhance the aesthetics of the window and the room. But there`s so many types of window treatments, it needs a whole separate story! What`s your favorite style in window treatments?
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed!
