What caught my eye on Pinterest - week 41

It's October and by the way I am selecting colours on Pinterest you can tell we are headed towards she shorter days of winter. I am looking at deep dusty tones and fun accents of blush pink. Not looking for trends, just for what combines well and makes my heart skip a beat. I hope you are looking forward to winter just as much as I am. Want to see more of the images like above or find these in my feed... click here.

H e l l o F r i d a y - Some seriously good kitchen goals

For years and years the kitchen was a place that had to be functional. Ok, there was a choice of coloured door fronts and if you were adventurous you may have taken a coloured back splash. But still a kitchen was a kitchen and function was the main priority. If I would redesign a kitchen I would go about it completely different. Of cours function is still important but a kitchen is often the heart of a home. So it needs style!! There are some of my kitchen goals.

K i d s T u e s d a y - bedroom ideas for a boho chique young girl

As a mother of boys I sometimes dream about styling a pretty girls room. But not too sweet and blushing. It needs some BAM. I have taken some popular brands such as Mrs Mighetto, Numero 74, Hartendief and Fiona Walker and styled them for a boho chique young girl. Let me know what you love about it or what could be missed for as far as you are concerned.

H e l l o F r i d a y - still in my blue and green mood

It's green everywhere you look. Fashion and interior this colour dominates the shelves. The thing I love about green is that it comes in so many different shades. This also makes it very challenging to choose the right colour to paint a wall. I have this problem now as I would like to paint a wall dark green but haven't found the right colour yet. Am hopeful I will succeed at the VT Wonen Woon en Design beurs the coming week.

K i d s T u e s d a y - Blue and blush for fun loving edgy girls

I am in love with the items by Lorena Canals. I love the bold use of colour. The up to date design and the fact that you can machine wash many of their items. For this little girls room I have taken the wall hanging as the start of my design. Combined with the blush tones and sweet swans the blue gives a contrast with just the right edge. I'm in love.

H e l l o F r i d a y - As autumn is approaching I am longing for darkness

I am not sure what it is but at the moment I keep pinning dark walls, dark furniture, dark kitchens. Mostly in a colour scheme of blues and greens. Must be autumn kicking in. Or wait, wouldn't I be influenced by orange, yellows and reds? I googled one of my current favourite colours and it came up as the colour of the year 2015. That makes me feel old knowing that I am no longer 'ahead' in trend. At the same time a colour on your wall should never be about trend. It should be about comfort. So ignore trends and embrace the colours you love. For me it is 'the darkness'... The blue is already on my wall and I've added the leaves this week. All I need is the designer sofa (keep collecting coins for a while) and the dark prints (very affordable).

After getting some new wallpaper for my living room and seeing a very inspirational kids room on a blog (in Dutch so use translate if needed) last week I decided to go for a modern jungle themed kids room. Just hints of jungle. You can finish the theme off with books and bedding if you wish to go all the way.

On Friday I have a 'grown up' version with usage of this wallpaper and wall colour. It is inspired from my living room after all... Now I must go and take my two rolls of wallpaper and get going. Can't wait to see this on the wall.

What caught my eye on Pinterest - week 38

I can't say how regular yet but I am looking forward to sharing my Pinterest inspirations with you all. It shows a bit where my colour interest or theme interest for my blog posts come from. This week I am so drawn to dark greens and deep blue tones. Must be the season changing from summer to autumn/winter. As soon as I find a green fabric suitable for this project I will try to make a sofa cover similar to this one. Love the rough seems and that colour is amazing! As you can see I am also looking forward to comfort food. Salads with warm meet, lovely flatbreads with piles of flavour. And the mary janes.... Not having a daughter has already saved me heaps of money. I would be so so sooo broke if my boys were girls. All I have to worry about are sturdy clothes and shoes. All tips for sturdy and cute are welcome!

This wasn't all I've posted, repined and liked. Follow me on Pinterest to stay in the loop.

K i d s T u e s d a y - This is where the fun stuff happens!

Sometimes I create a fun blog but don't take notes of the places where I found the products. Here is one of those blogs... Many I can still bring home but some. Still too good not to share. Credits known are shown on Instagram.

Kids Tuesday.... is you're kid leaving the nest?

Kids grow up and kids leave the house. When they go to their first own place to stay they are excited. As a mother you are likely dreading the moment. However, let's shake that feeling off and give the kids a good start in their first home away from home. There are some pretty cool products available that can dress up their space to give a young vibrant yet homely feeling.

Small space living (assuming they don't end up in a villa straight away) can still hold some bold statement patterns. I love the graphic wallpaper from the new collection of Brian Yates. Combine this with a romantic feminine (affordable) print from Uniqe and you have a sweet contrast going on. I love the Ercol sofa's. No not the cheapest solution but it's nice to have a living room space you can transform to a sleeping situation in the evening.
