DIY PROJECT: OLD CHAIR MAKE-OVER

bfbca2d7010f3a3863ef00ec0e825fa8

I love the make-over of this pair of old chairs! The original blue paint at the end of the legs was grinded away and left bare. The rest of the chairs were then painted in a beautiful matt black color. You can find old/vintage chairs in thrift stores or on sites such as Craigslist (US) and Marktplaats (Netherlands). I believe that the chairs used in this project are Thonet chairs.

This beautiful home in Oslo, Norway, belongs to photographer & blogger Elisabeth Heier. The base is simple with white floors and wall letting as much light in as possible. Natural materials such as the wooden beams give a warm touch. My favorite feature of Elisabeth’s home is the beautiful fireplace!

This old wooden barn is situated in the Czech republic. It has been redesigned by Oooox studio and the owners of this firm are also the lucky people living in the barn. The home is mainly decorated in black and white which gives a Scandinavian touch. Large glass doors and windows were installed in various rooms to make the most of the stunning views. The white walls and floors give a very bright and airy feel.

First of all I want to wish you all the best for 2015. May this new year be filled with joy, happiness, love and laughter! I took a unintended break as I was feeling very sick because of a mild pneumonia. Luckily I feel much better now and I am ready to kick off the new year with a new blog post! This beautiful Californian home is designed by Amber Interiors. It is the type of home that I love: cozy, stylish, with a bohemian chic touch. The mix of patterns and colors is just beautiful. The vintage rugs and pillows give the various spaces lots of warmth and character. Vintage pillows and rugs are available from Le Souk and from Amber’s shop.

Can you believe that this beautiful bright bedroom used to be a dark and cold attic full with stuff that wasn’t being used? By creating large windows and painting walls and floors white the attic space was transformed in a light and modern room. Beautiful!
