For someone, who has an infatuation with tableware, I haven’t posted much about it. I actually enjoy shooting those as it is a fun and creative way to experiment with textures on a smaller scale. It’s an easy way of creating compositions that exude different moods while hoping to inspire others to have fun setting up a fun table.
Why Only White Vases And Decor?
A while ago I saw a merch display that featured all white vases and nick-nacks. Something about the serenity and pureness appealed to me and I immediately thought it could work well on the black hot rolled steel shelves in our dining room.
The dining room is a pretty multi-functional room in our home. This is where we eat, work or craft up some DIY projects. It’s basically where a lot of the action and magic happens. It is also a space where great conversations & discussions are held and, of course, memories are made. I think it’s essential to maximize the way you live and use your domicile. It’s healthy and makes you feel happy and more at home, as it offers to house and manifests all layers of your personality.
THE CLASSIC + WHITE REINVENTED
The black + white ensemble has been consistent with its popularity throughout the years and it seems like it’s not going away any time soon. The classic duo has been conquering the kitchens of the world slowly, but surely. What I have noticed as well is the simplicity and boldness in size and format of the cabinets – the bigger the better. Hardware is scarcely present and transforms these cabinets visually into built-in closets and makes the transition from the rest of the home more seamless and clean. The only features that give it away as a kitchen are the faucets and stoves and such.
It almost feels like a few months have passed since we went on a family trip to my all-time favorite country, Portugal. In actuality it’s been over a year, which makes me realize how much time has passed and how much our lives have changed. I love thinking about this vacation in particular, not just because it was our first family vaca, but because we had so many special moments of bonding and only did things that we really enjoyed.
I particularly remember waking up to this distinct and earthy fragrance in the air, bronzing in a rooftop cabana while enjoying marvelous views of the city skyline of Lisbon. I remember the extensive walks through the tight alleys while noticing the combination of Old and New that seem to dominate this city. The fancy meals in exquisite restaurants. The refreshing waves of the Atlantic Ocean splashing against our bodies and realizing that we were far, far away from home (somewhere in the middle of planet earth/nowhere). The memory of looking up to the pink sunset sky and finding the leaves of palm trees dancing in the wind and shimmering in the most beautiful and vivid colors. The naps on the beach and collecting this eclectic mix of shells right after and realizing how talented and diverse mother nature is. The yacht trips along the Mediterranean Coast and those spectacular views of the northern peak of Africa.
