Hello there, dear non-existent readers! Frau Mayer is back with a massive resolution for 2011: BE INSPIRED AND ACT.
2010 was great and difficult at the same time. I achieved a lot, finished my teacher training, got a job, found out it was not all cakes and ale. I moved into my dream flat, read (too) many blogs, got inspired, bought furniture, spent endless hours at flea markets and IKEA, decorated, painted, cleaned and organised. I found wonderful new friends (hello there, Yvonne :) and also lost some. I read (although not enough) and danced quite a bit. I traveled to Morocco, Turkey, London (saw my best friend after quite a break!) and my beloved NJ (yes, and NYC, too! Can't get enough!) I shopped quite a bit. I got myself a Flickr account.
I read endless magazines.
Right now I feel that I need to read less and do more. During my last visit to Lüneburg I got a whole bunch of lovely mags from Yvonne and fell in love with this Danish apartment. I love the colors and the overall feeling!
Well, it's just logical that the apartment belongs to a Feng Shui expert. She definitely knows her business.
I wouldn't place so many Buddhas in my own place but I love how carefully the details are chosen here.
I never really dared to use pink - maybe it's time to give it a try?
I smiled when I saw this because I have a similar niche in my dining room and it's still half-empty so I'll be working on filling it with some eye candy in 2011, too.
There's only one word to describe this kitchen: gemütlich. Yes, it is!
I love how the owner manages to combine clean and fluffy. And so incredibly simple!
So this is what I am feeling right now - inspired. Let's see what kind of action is going to follow. Happy New 2011, everyone!
