A New Week!

Welcome to a new week of decorating ideas and eye candy! Before we get started, how was your weekend? Did you accomplish all you had hoped and more? I hit the flea market and found a few pretty things, and I bought some new inline skates and a tennis racket for Spring! I did a bit of organizing but ended up spending so much time outside of the house that I didn’t quite accomplish all I had hoped to indoors. Oh well. I guess I will just to have chip away at it again in the week to come! I found these beautiful images this morning on the Die Frau im Haus blog that I thought were just lovely — I love the entryway of this blogger who lives in Vienna. It’s quite nice, don’t you think? A nice “welcome” to a new week, too!

I also like this nook in her kitchen, she shows it before and then after some rearranging below. Aren’t her tiled floors a dream?

And finally, I love this shop tour of Mutterland in Hamburg. Hamburg is just an hour from me so I have to go to this shop when I’m there in May to see Sia with my friends.

So friends, welcome to a new week — things to do, places to see and inspiration to be found!

    Is that a sewing table in the first picture? It is gorgeous!! I also find very interesting the three colours of the wall – I haven’t seen this before. Definitely a home worth sharing, thanks! :)

    I bought a tennis racket this weekend too! Spring is in the air! No I did not get nearly enough accomplished this weekend and I hope I don’t get the Monday overwhelming feeling soon because of it! Gorgeous home entryway!!

    Hi there! good weekend thanks – at least it was nice enough weather to be outdoors :) Just wondering if anyone knows the name of the yellow flowers in the 2nd image? Also, are they the kind of flowers that can be dried – would they look good still?

    The wall in the first picture is great. I’ve done chair rails before, but never two! Cool idea to keep in mind.

    @ Holly. Oh, thank you!

    @ Iva. Yes, it is. And the sewing machine is still in there, but the table is locked. I`ve never seen the machine. Maybe I should give another try?

    @ Sarah. It`s a mimosa. (Learned that 4 days ago.) Tomorrow I`ll share more photos.

    The three-tone wall is such a clever idea and with the checkered floor, oh so lovely. Thanks for getting my brain reeling again this morning.

    You have inspired me to buy inline skates again. I too, sold mine long ago. My daughter is probably too young to learn to skate yet (3 3/4 yrs old) but she could ride her bike and I could skate. Skating is the best exercise!

    What a nice way to start the week, Holly! I have to say, I took your words to heart on Friday and even though I had a busy, busy weekend, I still made a point to have fun, and I feel so much better today because of it!

    And the entryway shots above are so inspiring, I am pulling these into my own style file. Happy Monday!

    The entryway will all those beautiful plants is stunning. Does it always look like this? Also, love the before and after. It’s amazing what a collection of white ceramics can do!
