The Summer Cottage Bedroom Renovation

The sole room in the Balaton wine cellar doesn’t hold many variable possibilities within itself. But I still felt like it could use a little facelift. First I thought about changing out the PVC panelling on the side, but with an eye on the budget, we put this idea on the backburner and went for a cheaper, but equally creative solution.

Modern jewelry studio: my attic

I start every year with a wish. I write it in my blog. These wishes always come true by the last day of the year. It was the same in 2011. I wish to have a studio at home in our attic. I grew out the old one.

I wanted to work from home to save time, gas and traffic stress. I think my kids are too small for me working at an other location. I like it this way.

2011 started with the design process. I did my degree in architecture and my best friend still works as an architect. first I collected several inspiration photos and talked a lot about the glass fusing process. We did the planning part together. I love the way she works. The construction took place in the summer, when wee mooved out and renowated the rest of the house. Mooving was no fun at all. I had to think about my new studio ever day to hanle the mooving.

The bold.color.glass brand ha two major colors. White and pink. We used these two colors for my studio. I need lots of white. This makes spaces big and light. I have been collecting pink things for the new studio for a year. Like these ikea bins. We put the orders being processed in these little bins.

I als collected retro stuff, like theese selving. 30 years ago you could find these selving consols in every single appartment. Nowdays retro lovers use them like me. I added a little twist by painting them pink. The first aid cabintet was from the local ebay. It must have been a WWII. thing. I painted them too! The clock was a present from my Hubby, who handled really well the whole mooving, construction and ect.mess. Thanks a lot!

A padlásmesék nem érnek még véget, mert az elmúlt hetek történéseiről hamarosan blogbejegyzéseket írok!

The Life of the Cupboard

I started to search online for a vintage cupboard about two years ago. I spent quite a lot of time browsing the local craiglist and ebay kind of sites. I wanted something rounded, not too worn and cheap. When I saw this with the dotted window, I knew, this was it! [Read more…]
