Interior Design: Interesting renovated home in San Francisco by Homework

While surfing on internet today I saw these beautiful photos of the interesting project from Susan and Ben Work, founders of the architecture and interiors firm Homework. It's from their renovated home in San Francisco. What a great kitchen in blue combined with marble, vintage stools and beat lights from Tom Dixon! The faucet from Waterworks is also beautiful to see. Love the bathroom too with the elegant sinks in cupper, the cupper mirrors as well as the shower head. Take a look at the creative combination of tiles they used here. Be Inspired ......

I guess you've noticed already how much I love flowers and especially tulips. I always become happy while seeing flowers. Witness below the start of tulip season on National Tulip Day. The season begins officially on Dam Square in Amsterdam (NL). Every year, Dutch tulip growers build a huge garden with tens of thousands of tulips into a sea of color on the Dam Square in Amsterdam. Thousands of people come to pick a free bouquet of flowers here. National Tulip Day is traditionally held on the third Saturday of January. Set up begins at 08:00. The tulip garden will be open to visitors from 13:00 to 16:30. For 2018 the date was January 20th and for 2019: January 19thI wrote more blogs about FLOWERS. Wishing you a Lovely and Joyful day!

Interior Design: City apartment in Warsaw with beautiful doors of steel

Be Inspired by this city apartment of Lucja Szwedo, a lawyer from Poland. Lucja grew up at the countryside, but for her work she is living now with her daugther Helena in a modern city apartment of 106 m2, situated in the centre of Warsaw. With the help of interior designer Paulina Swist from Studio ArchiWisla she arranged to decorate the complete apartment in her own personal style. I saw lots of interesting elements in this beautiful apartment. Like the doors of steel, the industrial kitchen design, the chique bathroom, the beautiful flooring, the lighting designs, the elegant writing table from wood. Love the accents in mustard yellow too for the sofa, the  yellow door as well as the yellow details on the bed design.
