Ideas For A Happy Weekend

I am a pretty indecisive nature. I like to go out. I like to stay in. I like colours. I like monochrome. I like coffee. I like tea. Sigh.  That blend of tastes and likes defines my aesthetics. I tend to try different styles and combinations and sometimes I discover something new and unexpected that works. This rule applies for my bedlinen, too. I have many styles and colours, but during summer I love simple, natural hued linen. Their special tactile feel is the epitome of lazy summer mornings. So let us think of this little idea for a happy weekend: Cherish your aesthetics and apply to one important rule - there is no rule. Just your style. Have a great weekend, friends!

  1. Danke für die Inspiration. Ich muss gleich mal gucken, ob das Stück Leinen auf's Bett passt. Kisten-Nachtische haben wir nämlich schon :)

  2. I so agree with this Igor :) I do have style preferences, but often I am inspired or struck by something completely different. And I love when that happens! I don't question it too much, I go with it - it makes life interesting! So I'm with you, throw away the rule book and let yourself enjoy things that you may not have previously chosen.

    Have a fabulous weekend (with coffee AND tea)!


  3. Totally relate to this, Igor! But no doubt, that washed natural linen is just gorgeous. Happy weekend!

  4. Hehe, like you're describing myself! I find countryside decor pretty inviting during summer (is it that I long for a vacation there? Maybe..)
    Anyway, keep posting- and doing- what you feel like Igor! We're with you =)

  5. I love this bed linnen and I do agree with you - a mix of styles without rules are just fine!

  6. First seven sentences are so famiuliar to me Igor. So I have to say I´am quite indecisive to, specially when it comes to decorateing our home. Sometimes I act as one decision is so final that I can not change it any more. And I think there are some rules locked in my unconscious, that make me confused sometimes :). But I totaly agree with you, it is important that we tend to try different styles and unexpected combinations.
    And yes I love linnen to.

  7. You're so right on with this thought. Sometimes I feel like I have multiple personalities because I like so many different styles, but I can't help it!!! I like the no rules thing. :)

  8. I so agree-no rule is best-just what takes you at a moment. I adore simple monochrome and scandinavian style as much as dark, moody and vintage-eclectic I guess! :-)

  9. I am a lot like you - I love colors and then neutrals.... I like staying in but sometimes need to go out. It's all about balance.

    Meanwhile, I love the photo you chose for the post....the simplicity of the bedroom, the color of the linens. So great!
