We live in a rented house. I liked it a lot but all our walls are the same colour, it´s too uniform and after some time they are boring. We are not allowed to paint the walls but I would love to do it. So instead of complain and complain (something that I have done for a while :/) I decided to start decorating them...
Well, the truth is that so far only 2 of the walls are decorated. I hung 3 frames with postcards from our trips to some National Parks on one. The other has a tapestry in yellow, white & black that brings some colour to the room. I really like this one but I need more…So I search a little bit to have some new ideas about what to try next, and those are the ones that I liked better.

With Tiles

-This would look great in our bedroom as well-

With CDs

-Super original-

With Stickers


With Plywood


-Love love love this one for our kitchen-

With Pictures


-This should be easy, I just need to spend some time deciding which pictures I want!-

So more things added to my ‘Project List’. It’s time to decorate the walls!

I’m sure everybody is busy these days: shopping, cooking, organizing, making sure everything is perfect…but please, don’t forget to enjoy, laugh, smile, and tell all your family and friends how much you love them!

Have a wonderful day:

I love big pendant lamps. They are an important point in a room, and in my opinion they can totally transfrom the entire room .

When I saw this one, I fell in love. This lamp is gorgeous, stylish and the best thing: is a DIY lamp! Can you believe it? I want one!!

And just searching a little bit I found more stunning lamps. Take a look to these pictures, I’m sure you will want one for your living room, your bedroom or your studio.

Can you believe that alll of them are DIY! Don’t you want to try?? The difficult part will be to choose only one!

Hope you had a great Halloween! It was a really fun weekend for me: crafts + party with friends + candy = perfect combination! :)

Here is a pic of our scary pumpkins! The truth is that they were more cute than scary, also because they were small, but I think they look great! I think I'm going to keep them for a long time!

And here is another pic of our Halloween crafts. The moment I saw the spiderwebs here I knew I wanted to make them. And I decided to add some life there, so we made the spiders as well. The spiderwebs are made with trash bags (but go to How About Orange for the tutorial, I’m sure you will find more things that you like in her blog) and the spiders are made with foam balls (bought from the dollar store) and straws!

Fast, easy and cheap, so if you didn't put any decoration at your home this year, you should try that next time!

Crafty Halloween = Lovely Halloween!
