My Mini Chandelier

Before our big move I got the chance to spend some marvelous days in Amsterdam with my favorite girls travel group.

We always try to do some sight seeing, but at the end of the day what we always get accomplished is – shopping!

So while my dear friends tried on silly shoes


…I had decor in mind and spotted a small deco chandelier on the wall.


It was mine for Euro 5!

Now in Texas we started to hang art.


And the Mini Chandelier found a new home. I think it goes well with the other piece of art by Ingrid Wild in my kitchen and just gives it a spin to the not so serious style in our home.

Someone once asked me why we painted the house white, just such a boring and bland color. Well, you know we are not boring and our art is not boring. We think that is enough color in our house!



And on a totally different note: this was street art in Amsterdam. Fake poo and pee!



powder bath – creative block

This little powder room or guest bath room used to be all pinkish and those cabinets made this already tiny room feel even smaller.


So as I was writing before, we were taken over by the domino effect big time here: we took out everything!

We had new sleek cabinets made, we installed the new toilet and bought a vessel sink and faucet.

But now what???? I am suffering from creative block.


You can see the dark paint swatches on the wall. I went through the black phase, the eggplant phase. Now – I am not sure at all.


The wall opposite the door needs some art, some texture, just something – I had so many ideas but none of them felt really right. I am preoccupied with unpacking and re-arranging our other stuff and this little room had to wait.


So our guests will still have to go in there and use the sink in the kitchen to wash their hands until we decide upon paint, art, mirror, counter top and light fixtures.

Any ideas?
