Happy Weekend!

June 11, 2010

That’s it for this week, I’m signing off to go have fun with some of my girlfriends tonight and get my weekend started! I need to connect with my friends because though I love to be in exciting places like London and Copenhagen there is still nothing sweeter than sitting around a table with those you care for to exchange ideas, share a glass of wine and enjoy some fresh, delicious food!

Happy Weekend!

I’ve posted several pretty things for you to enjoy today that will take you into the weekend feeling inspired (I hope!) and below I’ve included some gorgeous “real” homes from the decor8 Interior Styling group on Flickr that I know you will like. Please click below each grouping to visit the page of the homeowner and to see more shots of their home and life in their Flickr album.

Happy Weekend!

    Hello :)

    …nice to be back from vacation and find one of my pictures featured here among other gorgeous ones! I especially love Yvonne’s new, tirquoise, kitchen wall and Ilaria’s wonderful sense of styling!

    …have a lot of catching up to do….wishes for a lovely summer to all and to you Holly also all the best for the book, which we are all looking forward to!

  • Reply Daniella June 14, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    I didn’t catch it before the weekend, but what an inspiring way to start the week. :)

    Holly, how do you always come up with these spot-on gorgeous interiors?

    @Karin… Which home is yours? They are all so beautiful–I would love to know where you come up with the style?

  • Reply Coco June 16, 2010 at 3:38 am

    very nice photo’s! Love them all and how nice of you to let us see the REAL homes. Buying magazines sometimes makes me a bit disappointed about the houses they show: they always look like highly expensive houses or apartments. It looks i never see ‘Reihenhaus’; family houses; in the magazines. I know its not just me because i hear the complaint more often. But anyways, i love that you showed IT to us here!

    I love the group but i stumble upon the rules about nudity and even no art work that contains nudity. I understand you don’t want to provoke with porn/nudity but artwork containing nudity can never be a problem in my opinion. I have two children of the age of 2 and 4 and the are used to the naked boobs hanging above our sofa. Its a photograph of me while i was pregnant. You actually don’t see my face only my boobs and big belly. I love the photo – it looks nothing like to provoke or anything like that!! It looks very natural and ‘back to nature’. Oh and before anyone asks: i kept my under panties on ;)

    • Reply decor8 June 16, 2010 at 3:44 am

      Coco – I have nothing against nudity at all but some others do and to be respectful to all, I decided to omit anything that could potentially offend others.

      Thank you!

    Thank you so much for including my photo! I love this post (as usual ;)
