Partly because I am really frugal, and partly because I like to … (2 comments)

Hey, I've been posting a lot about minimal efforts to achieve the maximum effect when it comes to your home decor. Today, let's talk about your bedroom. The color of a room says a lot about its purpose and also about YOU! And with a little paint you can achieve great changes!
What color did you choose for your bedroom? Are you happy with it? In my house, the Blue Cottage, I chose happy colors that make me feel good. My son's room is a bright turquoise because I felt that the regular blue seemed just too predictable. 
For our bedroom - as you can … (3 comments)

Would you consider adding neon to your interior design colour palette? My first reaction was 'NO'!!! For me neon colors belonged in the 80s, and had nothing to do with my home decor style. I just could not embrace the thought of having super bright colors in my home. But then I saw more and more posts on Pinterest that featured neon-colored elements for home decor and I reconsidered my initial reluctance. What I learned is: Less is more when it comes to using neon colors. After browsing many boards, I made my own list of my 10 favorite decorating ideas with … (3 comments)

diy: The Lazy Way to Paint a Bookshelf and Other Furniture - 03/11/18 11:46 AM
Hi, it's Dagmar from Dagmar's Home. 
Where do you store extra dishes, glassware or canned food? If you don't have much space, it can be challenging to keep everything organized and at reach. Especially, when it comes to your kitchen paraphernalia, and the things you don't need on a daily basis. Maximizing your space is already a challenging task but of course you also want it to look neat and beautiful. 
I have a little pantry with a beautiful pine bookcase. I wanted to give it a clean look but wasn't willing to spend too much time on a DIY project. I … (3 comments)
