Mixing color palettes

I love the excitement of a new color palette in a space. Recreating a new room, adding new tones and combining powerful colors. I remember this one time, I had to choose a new color palette for a client's bar. We chose the colors together and tested them on a small area on the wall and the painters came during the night and painted the whole place. I couldn't sleep that night, I was anxious and excited about the result. This is definitely my favorite part of being an Interior Architect, the feeling you get the first time you enter the room when it's finished. Today I want to share with you a powerful color palette of a living room. If you feel that your living room is kind of dull, add a dash of yellow (yellow is strongly connected with inspiration, joy and communication!) with a lamp or a couple of pillows. A vibrant artwork on the wall will do the same. 

This post will help you copy this room and its color palette! 

What do you think? Do you like mixing vibrant tones with earth tones?

Trendspotting: Moroccan tiles in the kitchen

To be honest, I was never a huge fan of mixed patterns. I was always supporting the 'Less is more' movement. But as I grow up I find my self loving mixed patterns, colors and textures. My latest obsession is Moroccan tiles. They come in different shapes and colors and they add a unique, ethnic character to each space. Especially in kitchen area. What do you think?

Would you like 'ethnic' tones in your kitchen?

Blogging break is over, I'm back to beautiful London town & my favorite daily blogging routine.
I hope you're having a lovely Summer!

Favorite Summer holidays

Alikes beach, Ammouliani island, Greece // Picture taken by me

 I've just opened my macbook which has been sleeping for a week now due to a dead charger. I'm so happy to be back to the world of internet with a brand new charger and from a different location this time. I've just arrived to Aegina island, the weather is HOT(42 degrees!) and we are going to spend all of our days on the beach. Today I'm guest blogging over at Helena's blog 'A Diary of Lovely' about my favorite holidays and I'm sharing with you a secret Summer recipe! Take a look at it here
It's time for some refreshing cocktails!
See you all tomorrow!
