You know what - today is the first day of the autumn. Did you already started thinking of redecorating your home and switching to fall mood? I did and this season I like a lot the grey and the different natural textures. I found a lot of inspiration in the catalogue of the New Zealand brand “Nest” - do you know it? It is a very stylish home ware brand from Auckland that collects beautiful pieces from all over the world. Right next to the Portuguese ceramics, the washed linen bedding is something to die for - so cozy.

Thank you for coming again here. Are you a morning person? Or do you stay late at night and the mornings are just not your favorite time of the day?
Personally I still can't decide yet, but there is something that I can’t live without. The coffee. This is the only thing that is with me every single morning since… forever. It helps me to switch my mind on and in an active mode. And because today is Monday and it is hard time for everyone, stop for a moment and celebrate with me these little starters that help us every day - the coffee, the cup of tea, the breakfast. Ok, now go and promise to have a great start of the week.
P.S. here is my favorite summer coffee recipe.

I could not resist - so powerful emotion is contained in these two pictures. And since we are discussing the early Autumn this week, I think that they are very suitable. From one side, we still have warm weather and the summer sun, but somehow everything is burned and brown hues of the fall dominate everywhere. This fantastic work by David Bellemere for Marie Claire Italia September '11 simply makes me dream. And I think that few romantic notes on Friday morning wouldn't hurt anyone.

Yesterday when I was searching for pictures to create the inspirational board dedicated to the rain (for which I still wait) I discovered an amazing photographer. His name is Michael Sinclair, originally from Australia. Michael now lives and works in UK, but travels and photographs lifestyle in interior pictures from all over the world. While I was browsing through his amazing portfolio I discovered this beautiful place, created from wood and stone. I love the gorgeous light and the mood that Pender’s Barn creates.

I haven't seen the rain for more than four months already. And today when they said on the radio that it might come here too I was excited and created a small collection of beautiful rainy pictures (my previous inspiration you can see here). And I made a plan that when the rain comes I will grab the camera and will run out to capture the first drops. What is your favorite things to do when it rains? Enjoying a cup of tea, cuddling in the bed with book, petting the cat?

Our home visit today is very special. This is one of the most stylish homes that I've ever seen. Full of fantastic design and lovely treasures, decorated with a lot of taste. I kid you not!
This house in San Francisco is the home of one of the most popular interior bloggers – Si from “FrenchByDesign”. Besides being great blogger and having incredible eye for the details Si is very stylish. And there’s no surprise in that - she is from France and loves timeless design, fashion, antiques and warm colors. Last but not least Si is such an inspiring person and I am so lucky that I can spend quality time with her.

You know what… It is time to celebrate. I will celebrate that today I passed the first part of my Driver License exam. Probably for you it might not be a big deal… but I’m on my way to break a family tradition spanning over three generation. I’m on my way to become the first female driver in the family. Yay!
So I will celebrate this and you are very welcome to celebrate with me… or you can celebrate something different - the upcoming weekend, the new day, the night, the stars, your friends. Just celebrate something.
Actually always try to find nice and positive things and celebrate it. Because life is short.

There is so much light in this gorgeous home that it looks like transparent. The house is built right next to the sea in Norway. The place is specially selected, the home built in a welcoming way and to appreciate the nature. Everywhere there are panoramic views, glass and white. And what is my favorite place? The family room - the light texture of the wood, the glass wall from bottom to the top and the beautiful chairs designed by Patricia Urquiola.

I was planning to show you today another home tour, but something happened. I almost died when I saw this stunning apartment. I think my words won't be enough to express how much I love the dramatic feeling in that luxury Berlin home. The interior design is so great, the textures are rich and powerful - leather, wood, linen and metal. And the colors are so beautiful too - no more completely white only interiors this year I think. Not that they are not pretty too, but see this apartment… isn't it just great. I'm pretty sure you would want more pictures so click here and enjoy. Oh and you can rent this beautiful from here.
