Spring Decorating Ideas

Spring_Mahalolena_2 Happy Sunday my dear readers. How are you doing? Did you have a good weekend? I was very active and creative. Yesterday, I spent some time working on a secret project, which I’m going to share with you soon (hopefully).. yes, exciting, huh? Well, I keep on telling me it’ll be soon, but eventually it’s again taking too long and I’m not confident enough revealing my plans yet. So, cross your fingers for me, and maybe you want to cross them for you too, so you’re lucky that you can finally see the outcome of the mission impossible I babble on for a while. Ok, anyways, I begin to move away from the purpose of this post. Today, I woke up early and went to the gym, which is utterly irrelevant for now, but still.. Now it’s time for the round of applause. This was the first time I went to the gym on a freakin’ Sunday. However, peeps, I admit I’m feeling great. Not only, cause of the weights I lifted (oh yeah, look at me..). No, no seriously, rather because I finally had time to do a proper styling shoot at home. See, now we’re back on topic. Took a few sentences, but hey, I’m supposed to share my life here, right? – just kidding. Now I’m happy to present you the result of today’s, tadaaaa Spring shoot. Below you will find a series of Spring Decorating Ideas in bright and airy colors, which directly deserve another round of applause. Oh and of course, feel free to go all pin-crazy about the images. Just before I forget it, I really got inspired by this lovely blog that I came across recently.

Also, you might remember that there is this special day coming up in one week. I included an extra Valentine’s special for you. Don’t expect a big project as the other ones I showed you before. This idea is especially for the busy superwomen among you, who multitask 24/7. Feeling addressed? Me too. Therefore, I included this sweet one for you, which takes you only seconds, unless you take images.. Scroll down and be inspired.

A bright and colorful home in Brooklyn

Radiant Home Brooklyn_Mahalolena_1 Hello my dear readers. How are you? It has been quiet for a few days. However, now I’m back with the amazingly bright and colorful home of Jenny, based in Brooklyn and photographed by lovely Brittany Ambridge.

For those of you who missed out, before we jump over to this great apartment in Brooklyn.

Like I just mentioned, I have a lot of ideas, but I wonder what you, as my readers, who I value greatly would like to learn. Maybe, you need some seasonal DIYs, such as Valentine’s Day or Easter, or something totally different. I’m all ears. Let me know in the comment box below.

101Woonideeen is teaming up with vtwonen

Sadly enough, a few hours ago, 101Woonideeen posted that from now on their website is finally offline. It’s a sad day, cause I loved this magazine so much. The first time I found out about it was when I moved to the Netherlands. I was immediately in love with the design and style of this magazine. I bought it as soon as it was lying in the shelves. Each time I was curious about their DIY column. I was really inspired and encouraged to try most of their handmade home projects. This has now come to an end. But, I wouldn’t tell all this, if I didn’t have some promising news hanging up there in my creative sleeve. You know me, right.. Let’s dry up all the tears and look forward. 2015 is the year of change, so it is for 101Woonideeen.

Already, a few months ago they announced that they will team up with vtwonen, the most successful interior and decoration magazine in the Netherlands. To make it an even bigger success, merging those two subbrands of publisher brand Sanoma makes sense to me. Vtwonen is more focussed on B&W styling, whereas 101Woonideeen was always full of color. Well now we have 2 in 1, as long as I get my DIY column.. Well, good news. Vtwonen has recently launched their beautiful new website, including a great DIY page with all projects that were also launched in 101Woonideeen. Besides, you can also order a vtwonen best of DIY magazine here. What a great idea. I will definitely check it out.

Here are a few of my favorite DIYs all available on vtwonen. You can click on the photos to learn how to create those ideas yourself. And at the end a little surprise, which I was quite happy about.

And here comes the surprise. My pinwall was featured on vtwonen on their DIY page. How great is that? I’m super happy to see that. I honestly didn’t know about it. I must have missed it. Thanks vtwonen.
