Today some fun diy summer projects that I found on various blogs. You can do them indoors on a rainy summer day or outdoors in your garden when the sun is out. Take you scissors, glue, some cookies and lemonade + anything else that you need and have some fun. You can find links to instructions and templates at the end of this post. Enjoy!

Can you believe that this tranquil garden is right in the middle of of the hustle and bustle of Echo Park, an urban neighborhood of Los Angeles. The lush garden belongs to jeweler designer Kathleen Whitaker who tells Gardenista that the piece of land was a huge selling point for her. “Living in Southern California is all about bringing the outdoors in—whether it’s the lush surroundings or the beautiful LA light.”

A COZY SCANDINAVIAN COUNTRY KITCHEN http://style-files.com/2014/08/19/a-cozy-scandinavian-country-kitchen/ http://style-files.com/2014/08/19/a-cozy-scandinavian-country-kitchen/#comments Tue, 19 Aug 2014 06:16:11 +0000 http://style-files.com/?p=18380 Continue reading ]]>

country-kitchen-1

I’m loving this beautiful country kitchen in a Swedish garden cottage. It looks so warm and cozy. To get this country style you can use copper pans, a (vintage) butcher table and rustic wooden chopping boards. Similar chopping/bread boards are available from Le Souk. These are handmade by artisans in the north of The Netherlands. Perfect for serving and presenting beautiful food!

THE FRIDAY FASHION FILES: THE BOHEMIAN CLUTCH http://style-files.com/2014/08/15/fridays-fashion-files-the-bohemian-clutch/ http://style-files.com/2014/08/15/fridays-fashion-files-the-bohemian-clutch/#comments Fri, 15 Aug 2014 06:56:08 +0000 http://style-files.com/?p=18679 Continue reading ]]>

This bohemian clutch is the perfect accessory. You can wear it casually, to the beach or a festival for example, but you can also take it to a night out. What I like about these clutches is that nobody can be wearing the same bag as you as the vintage fabrics, the embroidery, the use of color and the details make every bag unique.

These clutches are available from Le Souk . The bags are handmade in India by a member of the Banjara Tribe. Inspired by their experience as nomads, the one of a kind handmade products and textures are created with colorful vintage fabrics. The bags carry the story of a culture, their tradition and customs. Prices range between €69.95 – 79.95.

This lovely summer cottage in Ekerö, a group of islands not far from Stockholm, belongs to Asa Myrberg. Asa is the person behind decor blog Mycasa, she certainly has a flair for interior design. I love the dining area (top image) with a table built of 1700s floor planks with a welded steel frame. Mix & match chairs are from Eames, Thonet, Artwood and Sia.

You may have seen these images popping up on various blogs and on social media. But I love the styling so much that I want to show them to you here as well. This moon party was organized by Design Love Fest at the request of Epson to show some alternate ways of using a home projector system. The party was styled by Moon Canyon. I LOVE the beautiful assortment of pillows, moroccan rugs and tables. You can read the entire story (+ more images and free downloads) here on Design Love Fest.
