One of the items I use a lot to decorate my house and I can get for free, is to reuse bottles or jars as vases. I love to recycle these pieces, the wine bottles, water bottles or soda bottles (glass bottles of course) can be used very nicely in different compositions playing with the heights and shapes of the bottles. It definitely gives a special touch to any corner of your home… and did I already mentioned that they are free? I don’t think twice about asking for water bottles to take home in restaurants … and so far I have not received any no’s.
Here you will see a small selection of images of bottles to use, how to use them and how to be inspired to integrate it into your personal style. Hope you like it.
Hello DIY’ers! Here a little inspiration project that serves both as decoration for a special corner of your house, or to make a fun and different gift. And it’s as simple as planting a Cactus in a can. If you manage to get Mexican products cans, I think it looks even better (like canned jalapeños, sauces or chili). Or you can opt for a vintage style tin can or coffee cans. I loved this idea and I think it can add a touch of color and fun to any room, plus we are recycling our cans!!. I hope you like it as much as me 😉
A little cute closet always looks good. But let’s be honest… Not all of us can fit eveything in a small closet? Certainly not me! Here I show you some ideas to make an open closet.

It’s almost December… And Christmas is around the corner!!!. I love this time of the year, because in my family we celebrate Christmas with a cultural “REMIX style. Which makes it very special and unique, as we mix caribbean style Christmas (from Dominican Republic) with Danish Christmas traditions. And to top it off, my latest acquisition has been to integrate the Catalan Christmas culture in this compound of cultural contrasts. But really, is what makes my Christmas special! What about your Christmas, that makes it special?
In this post I share with you some inspirations images to make your own Advent calendar, which is one of my favorite traditions from Denmark. For those who do not know or have never seen this, it’s a ” countdown ” to Christmas Eve ( December 24th) The advent calendar usually comes in many forms, such as a card, a box of chocolates, a toys box… in Denmark you can buy them made (and in many other northern countries) But why not make your own DIY version?! These bloggers have done some very cool DIY versions you can get inspired from. It is great to make with kids, give it to a friend or family member or give a surprise to your love! Every morning, from the 1st to 24th December, you can open a surprise, either a note, a sweet or a little something you want to share. And on the 24th, the surprise is often the best!! What do you think of this idea? Are you up for it?
As I mentioned in previous posts, when you want to change the look of your home, it’s much easier, faster and cheaper changing textile accessories and leave the furniture as bases. Since the spring I wanted to give a touch of color to my bedroom. After removing many winter blankets and quilts, the room is a bit bland and boring.
With simple DIY cushions you can give a splash of color without beeing too much and having to change the entire bedding. It’s simple sewing your own cushions (and a thousand times cheaper!) Change the look of your living room, bead room, terrace or your favorite chair just DIY‘ing a cushion in your favorite fabric.
Spring is here and we all want to renew, change and update our home … It just seems that ur pockets don’t want to follow our good intentions. That’s why I love to do DIY low cost decorating projects.
With only about 5€ I made a mirror to decorate the living room, the entrance of your home or a special room. Definitely a super easy tutorial but with a spectacular result. This piece is inspired by vintage wall mirrors that are so IN at the moment.
