Wear beautiful pyjamas and workout clothes, tracksuits or shorts with a tee in the same fabric. Look like a model Kendall Jenner or Kylie Jenner.

Modern apartments in London, buying your first home

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018


Anyone looking for an apartment in London, hoping to own a first home, came across the “shared ownership” option. This is a quite new scheme, that allows you to buy a property only for about 25% of it’s value. So they are part-own, part-rent, quite affordable apartments, the mortgage is not as high as usually required for a property. But there could be some limitations, other costs, e.g service charges, which are not always fixed.

Anyway, the apartments are brand new, ready to move in, with sleek modern design. Kitchens and bathrooms are finished to the highest standard.

I researched only a few development projects, housing assosioations, that offer shared ownership. e.g L&Q at Greenwich Peninsula , but ther are plenty others on smartnewhomes.com website
Inspirational images are from these two websites.

New modern vintage ethnic patterns on walls

Sunday, January 28th, 2018


At the beginning of new year, after a few weeks of lazy January, it is time to do some changes, maybe starting with redesigning your apartment’ walls and creating retro, stylish welcoming vibe.
There is a new amazing trend coming this spring and summer, very ethnic, Africa inspired, but also modern vintage. Just take a look at new Zara campaign Spring-Summer 2018.
Vintage look was and continue to be popular, but takes a delicate turn with very detailed sophisticated patterns.
A few inspirational pics below, from tv shows like “Girlboss” (very funny tv series about the beginning of vintage shop Nasty Gal) or “Dear white people”. Both on Netflix.

Wintery but warm beautiful interiors

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018


“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” – Edith Sitwell

The latest woodburning stoves, fireplaces and heaters are as stylish as they are efficcient. They use clean-burning smokeless fuel technology.

Using sheepskins and fairy lights will create a wintery atmosphere with a Scandinavian feel.

Here are the selection of stoves, heaters and candle holders, mostly on sale now.
