for the home.

When I was younger my room used to be the messiest place in the house (although my siblings were close runners up with their rooms) and I know I drove my mom nuts on a regular basis by not picking up after myself. Weirdly, however, that all changed the instant I moved out. I have become overly cleanly ever since living on my own and I can’t stand it when our apartment is messy. I also find myself spending money on things like fresh flowers, new pillows and scented candles, which I would have never imagined as a teenager. Especially now that I work fulltime I love coming home to our cozy apartment and every time I look at the pretty flowers on our dining table or I light my favorite candles it puts a smile on my face. I guess you could call it growing up or becoming mature :)

Anyhow, what I am trying to get at are my new items for the home that will hopefully arrive some time soon:

    Ich weiß genau was du meinst. Über die letzten Jahre haben sich auf meiner Kreditkartenrechnung neben den üblichen Verdächtigen wie H&M, Nelly und Asos auch immer mehr Geschäfte wie Zara Home, Depot und Co. eingeschlichen. Nur bei Kissen bin ich bisher noch etwas zurückhaltend, weil ich oft finde dass sie wahnsinnig überteuert sind. Ich hab mir schon überlegt die Kissenbezüge selbst zu nähen… ist ja im Grunde weder schwierig noch recht zeitintensiv… mal schaun. :)
    Besonders süß find ich die Etagère für dein Schmuck.
    Lg, Andrea
    Wonderful and Marvelous

      Hi Andrea,

      ja ich hab jetzt auch total lange überlegt wegen den Kissen. Waren wirklich nicht grad billig. Aber meine Mami wird mir zusätzlich noch 2 Kissen mit grauem Chevron-Muster nähen, also spar ich mir dort ein bisschen was :) Ausserdem fand ich das Muster in dem hellen Blau sooo schön!

    Hey Vicky,

    wonderful items you chose! I totally understand what you mean- there’s nothing better than coming home to an amazingly comfy apartment, full of stuff that displays one’s personality. I adore this feeling, too. And I think it is super important having a place you feel 100% happy and comfortable!
    Would you mind me asking where you ordered the pillows? Love the pastel blue, just the right amount to add a little splash of colour to a living room!
    Happy almost-weekend,
    xx Nina

      Hi Nina,

      the pillows are from a brand called “Jiti Bedding” but I can’t seem to find their stuff online … at least not the cute stuff. I ordered via westwing.de which is a pretty cool site for interior shopping, kind of like brands4friends :) But the sale already ended …

        Thank you for your reply Vicky! I’ll check that out, always happy for little shopping hints like these :) xo

  4. Where did you find the jewelry holder? I’ve been on the lookout for something like that!

  5. Simone says:

    I know what you mean. Coming home to nice place feels really good! I am still so happy about my drapes I bought month ago- it still makes me smile looking at them :)
    I never checked out Westwing.de before- looks like I missed out on something!


  6. Anika says:

    I know exactly what you mean. I’ve become such a clean person since I moved out, my mom still can’t believe it. And you know what they say: You’re really grown up when you start spending your money on interieur ;)

  7. Sarah says:

    Those pillows are absolutely gorgeous, such a lovely pattern.
    I’m the same as you.. my bedroom at home is (sometimes!) messy, but in my own place I’m such a near freak!

    amazing stuff!
    I love them all :) I like decorating home with cozy stuff and changing things frequently

    Very nice things!

  10. All those patterns and soft colors are gorgeous!

    I was the same exact way! My room was a disaster zone. Now that I have my own plave- CLEAN FREAK! My bedroom is teeny tiny, with white brick walls, so I have just enough room for my bed and dresser, but everything is white with gold frames on the wall, and a green glass lamp. I like to keep it mostly white to make it feel cozy but not too small, and with hanging white lights, it feels like a fairy den :) If I leave anything on the floor it takes up 1/2 the space!

  12. Jenny says:

    I love all of these colors, so pretty! I really want that vase!

  13. Huda says:

    same here, it has more to do with living in someone else’s home (albeit our parents) and them cleaning after us even when they complain about our messy room. I love decorating and cleaning my little home.

    The color, patterns and interior design of these rooms are gorgeous, very inspiring.

    I agree on the expensive cushion issue. I would keep buying them from the discounter, but then it would not match my overall interior standards. For example I was shocked when I looked at kisseria.de for some special cushions and they came like 60 bugs per cushion.
    they have to find a solution for that. ;)
