Dulux Vizualizer app

October 25, 2015

Dulux Visualizer-45

How many times have you walked into a room in your house and thought to yourself “Hmmm I wonder what this wall would look like grey, or blue or canary yellow?” If you are anything like me then you’ve had this thought on more than one occasion and that’s why I’m pretty excited to tell you about the new Dulux Vizualizer app and a special giveaway that I’m hosting that could have you winning R1500 in Dulux paint and a Loads of Living voucher valued at R2000 that you can use to redecorate any room in your house. Nice hey?

But first let me start by telling you a bit more about this nifty app which I think is a pretty cool idea and a quick and easy way to realise that perhaps canary yellow is not the best colour for your dining room. This is how it works – you can either take a photo on your phone of the wall you are thinking about changing and then recolour it or you can use the real time option which allows you to hold your phone up to the wall or space you’re considering painting before choosing a colour from the Dulux range and then watching it change instantly. It’s actually really easy to use and the results give you a pretty awesome idea of what the room and your new colour choice is going to look like.

Barcelona apartment

August 5, 2015


Roberto Ruiz Tyche 07

Shane sent me a link a few days of a renovated Barcelona apartment situated in an early 1900’s building. It’s restorers aimed to retrieve its Art Nouveau essence through the restoration and recreation of original features. They have kept the design pretty minimal but have used awesome pops of colour in every room to really make the space fun and interesting. I think it’s such a great apartment, I love the exposed brick ceiling, all the colour blocking and the yellow they used in the bathroom, so nice!

Old French apartment

July 13, 2015


We went to Paris a couple of years ago on holiday, it was my second time in this beautiful city and I did the same thing I did the last time I was there, I would look up at all the buildings and apartment blocks and imagine who lived in them and what those places looked like inside. I always wish I had a special license that allowed me to just go onto people’s houses to see what they look like, I’m such a quizzy Lizzy that way. But how cool would that be? Then you would be able to see places like this beautiful 19th-century apartment, which is located in the historic centre of Bordeaux, France. Just imagine waking up in front of those windows everyday.

Industrial space

June 30, 2015


I always dream about the day that Shane and I will happen across a curious looking building for sale, like a rundown Scout hall, a church or an old garage like the glorious Industrial space below. Yip you’re looking at an old garage that has been converted into a home with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dressing room and a large open-plan living space and it’s located in central Amsterdam.

The genius behind this beautifully decorated home is interior architect James van der Velden. This is the space he gets to call home every single day in possibly one of the most picturesque places on the planet. Bet you his life doesn’t suck.

Dark interiors

dark space-19

I appreciate both light and dark interiors and this morning this beautiful home caught my eye and had me swooning. This is the space of Alketas Pazis who is a true collector of all things design, ranging from the styles of the 1900‘s – 1950’s. I spotted this space on this blog this morning and new I had to share it with you guys. It’s just up my alley, it has enough interesting pieces to make it look full, but not cluttered and I love all the dark walls.

I think I could look at interiors blogs all day, everyday. There are just some people out there that have the best eyes for detail and space. It’s so inspiring.

I would live in Copenhagen

living room

I came across this beautiful 90 odd square metre apartment located in the East of Copenhagen and I instantly fell in love with it. There is just the right amount of colour and charm in each room and it looks like such a loved home.

I really like it when people take small spaces and make them into little masterpieces.
