Oh My Mid-Century Credenza!

I say "Credenza" and you think I'm babbling Italian. Well hello! I was only talking about sideboards...Brag much? I think so! - I recently learnt that a sideboard is also called a credenza, don't you just love the sound of it? Wait till you hear the Italians say it.

So moving on from my obsession with the word, I think I'v got the most fabulous looking Mid-Century style credenzas lined up for you. Go ahead and take a peek!

Now you know what I'm talking about? Doesn't it take you back in time to the 60s? 

The idea is to have a piece of furniture that doesn't blend with the rest, which looks out of place yet adds that fun element to your space. So I think quirky is the way to go with these lovely mid century styled pieces and this is how...

In case you want color but not too knocked out of proportion than the rest of the set up then how about these...

While I try to get one of these custom made for myself (I know ill never get a ready made one to my exact liking) why don't you ponder over the kind you'd like for yourself and share with me via the comment box below.

Till I see you again...Salve!

Glam Jam

Sometimes all you need is a nudge to get back on track...

a track which you choose for yourself at some point, a track which you think you were actually meant to amble on, a track which lets you escape your worries and takes you with it on a beautiful journey, a track from which you are very likely to stray again owing to the 'apparently more important stuff'....yea well, I guess I am back for now! 

So I have GLAMOUR on my mind as of this moment and this is what I dug up...

I am loving everything about this 'at home work place'! The cool white furniture, the yellow and teal sit ons beautifully complimenting each other and last but the most important glamorous golds -  the Oh! so gorgeous golden leafy piece on the back wall and pretty gold lamps.

A perfect foyer decor with the fresh blues and surprisingly the wallpaper doesn't look bad either. Don't mind my cynical tone here but I'm not a big fan of damask designed wallpapers. So in my opinion if one must use it remember not to keep carved furniture in the same room. 

The gold frame adding all the charm here!

This room has a very earthen look and the golden framed pictures add a glamorous English old world 
charm to it.
(Yes! you've guessed it right that there's got to be a bit of gold for it to be glamorous)

Adding a tasteful chandelier to a room is another instant formula for glamorizing it, just like it does for this otherwise rustic decor. 

So that's a wrap and I got to go to bed now and will be back tomorrow, till then Ciao!
