Nicest Things

Hello everyone! There is this blog I’ve been reading lately in Germany called Nicest Things and the blogger, Vera, takes the prettiest photos of things she cooks or items she uses to decorate with around her home. It’s so nice to peek into her life and see what she’s cooked up next or what she is interested in using in her home currently to spruce it up. She loves to decorate, a lady after my own heart! I know most of you don’t read German, but you can always translate the blog using Google Translate or simply pin and drool over her pretty photos.

I love all of the color palettes that she plays with – she’s definitely not stuck in a color rut which I think is the most inspiring thing about her blog since so many of us have a particular palette that begins to almost define us – but Vera just explores and explores and the results are so interesting. I also like her various projects and where she shoots, from a picnic at a lake to a country field to making some homemade peach tea ice cream pops in her cute little kitchen, these types of creative bloggers – the super personal ones that provides peeks into the blogger’s life, are so special to me. I find myself going back to them time and time again. It’s nice to feel a connection with strangers and to feel like you could instantly like them if you’d ever met in person.

Blogging is so beautiful like that, isn’t it? Through a person’s aesthetic and writing alone, you can feel something that reaches the heart. Vera has created a special blog and I think it’s just lovely.

    I love her diptychs – I’ve been fascinated lately by them and seeing how different photographers put them together. Some by theme, some by colour palette, etc.

    Holly, oh my god, thank you!!! If you could see me now, jumping around and screaming with joy! I had no clue that you were up to this, what a big big surprise! I’ve been reading your blog ever since and for me, you’ve always been a hero, a person I admire a lot, someone who fascinates me. Oh, I hope it doesn’t sound cheesy, but that’s just the way it is! You can’t imagine how it feels now, that you read my blog, that you like it, and most of all the things you said… I’ve been reading your words now three or four times in a row and I think by now I know them by heart, haha. You are such a darling ♥ Perhaps one day we can really meet in person, this would be just wonderful! So again, thank you so so much, dear Holly!

    Thanks for sharing this blog Holly. I love the beautiful range of colours, styling and inspiration. And the little shoot set up shot at the end of the Flower Salad post made me laugh as I have little corners of my house and garden that are mini photo shoot areas. All pretty with great lighting. Everywhere else is the complete chaos of a family of six!
    Happy Weekend xx

    The name of this blog just seems so appropriate. These ‘nicest things’ were such a pleasure to take in. What I found very interesting was to be found in that kitchen image, where that pastel wall as a backdrop softened the black and white decor. Its works so well, despite the fact that it is almost a contradiction.
