How to Style a Coffee Table


Every functional living room has or needs a coffee table. It is a necessary furnishing item in a room where we place our drinks, remotes, magazines or our books while reading etc. Since in most households the coffee table might be also a focal point of the room, it is a good idea to dress it up nicely so, beside its functionality, the well decorated table will bring some style and personality into a room.

What to consider when styling a coffee table?

There are no strict rules as how to decorate a coffee table, as this always depends from the life style, creativity of a person, and other personal preferences for the coffee table use; however, for all those who aspire to have a well curated coffee table look it is good to know where to start to achieve that look.

Decorating a coffee table is really simple, and you don’t need to go shopping for decorative items for coffee table decor. In most of the cases you can find those around the house.

Few things that are a good idea on a coffee table and which you may already have:

Books

Books, specially those that inspire you or are a good conversation starters are always a god idea for a table decor. Stack them together so to create height and create visual interest. Way to stack the books together for a great look is to go with the largest one at the bottom and continue with the smaller at the top; this way we create height and add visual interest. While stacking them it is always good to look how those will look from the sides.

Tray
Tray is another classic item when it comes to table decorating.
A tray serves both a practical and stylish purpose by showcasing your favorite small finds while also making them easily removable should you need to clear the surface for entertaining. A tray is also useful for giving structure and symmetry to a freeform table.

Candles
Candles are another classic decorative item in coffee table decor. They create a warm ambiance, especially some good scented ones, so it is a good idea to incorporate them in our table decor. They come on various forms and styles making it possible to add a proportion, texture, height and style to a coffee table. When using scented candles I recommend not to use two or more different scented candles at a time as sometimes different scents mixed together may create a bad smell, thus ruining the enjoyment.

Flowers and Plants
It is non disputable fact that nobody can go wrong by using fresh cut flowers in table decor; and in my opinion, flowers should be a must in any coffee table decor. Flowers and plants add natural texture and color, and even the dullest coffee table may look pretty and styled by using a bunch of fresh cut flowers or a nice planted one.


Accessorise and Keep It Personal

To create a stylish and meaningful coffee table decor, beside adding accessories that are also functional, consider adding an item which is personal to you as a homeowner. Personal items, such as small items for your memorable travels or vacations, an inherited item of a sentimental value etc. are a good conversation starters and make your coffee table decor look unique and personalised.

So if you if you take into consideration the above tips such us using decorative items which vary on height ( created by a stack of books, flower vases , candles), using texture ( flowers and items with different forms and finishes) and by adding something personal, you are, without doubt, on a good track to create a great coffee table decor.

Si t’a dekorojme tavolinen e kafes

Secila dhome funkcionale e dites e ka nje tavoline te kafes ose, nese nuk e ka, i nevojtet nje e tille. Eshte nje vend i domosdoshem ku mund ti vendosim gotat e pijeve gjat konsumimit te tyre, pastaje librat ose revistat e ndryshme si dhe teledirigjuesin e tv’s etj., dhe kjo ka te beje me ate pjesen funkcionale e tavolines se kafes. Pasi tek shumica kjo tavoline munde te jet edhe pjesa fokale ne dhome, atehere do te ishte ide e mire qe ate t’a dekorojme bukur, ne menyre qe perpos funkcionalitetit, dekori i saje do te sjelle stil dhe personalitet ne ate hapsire.

Cfare te konisderojme me rastin e dekorimit te tavolines se kafes?

Nuk egzistojne regulla specifike se si te behet dekori i nje tavoline te kafes, sepse kjo gjithehere varet nga stili i jeteses se personit, kreativitetit, preferencave personale etj.; megjithate, per te gjith ata te cilet deshirojne ta ken nje pamje te kuruar te tavolines se tyre te kafes, atehere eshte mire te dijne se nga t’ja fillojne per t’a arijtur nje dekor te bukur qe ata ose ato e aspirojne.

Edhepse per disa dekori i tavolines eshte art ne vete, per te gith ata te cilet deshirojne qe ta ken nje dekor jo edhe aq extravagant, dekorimi i nje tavolineje te kafes eshte shume i lehte; dhe, shumica prej nesh nuk kan nevoje qe domosdoshmerisht te blejne gjesende dekori per kete qellim. Ne shumicen e rasteve ato gjesende dekorative do ti gjejne ne shtepi.

Disa gjesende te cilat do te ishte ide e mire qe ti perdorim ne dekorin e tavolines se kafes e te cilat mund ti keni ne shtepi:

Librat
Librat, e posaqerisht ata qe na inspirojne ose jane inicues te mire te bisedes, jane gjithehere ide e mire qe te jene pjese perberse e dekorit ne tavolinen e kafes. Dhe libra kemi qe te gjithe, edhe pse ndoshta jo ato nder me luksozet te botuar enkas per t’i vendos siper tavolines se kafes. Lbrat e perzgjedhur I radhisim njerin siper tjetrit ne menyre horizontale duke filluar nga me i madhi i vendosur ne pjesen e poshtme, dhe duke vazhduar me te vegjlit siper; ne kete menyre ne krijojme lartesi dhe interesim visual. Gjate radhitjes se tyre eshte mire te shiqojme se si po perputhen ngjyrat e kopertinave dhe si duket radhitja nga anet tjera.

Tabaka
Tabaka eshte nje element poashtu klasik dekorativ per sa i perket dekorit te tavolines se kafes. Ajo e ka edhe ate elementin funkcional e edhe dekorues ne tavolinen e kafes, pasi qe ne te mund te vendosim gjesende te ndryshme dekoruese e qe krijojne simetri dhe strukture ne tavoline; si dhe ne anen tjeter e bene te mundur qe ti largojme shpejte te gjitha dekoret ne tavoline duke e menjanuar tabaken ne rastet kur na nevojitet tavolina per shfrytezim (p. sh. lojra me miq dhe familje si shahu, letrat etj.)

Qirinjet
Qirinjet jane nje tjeter element dekorues shume te perdorur siper tavolines se kafes. Perdorimi i tyre krijon nje ambient te ngrohte, e sidomos perdorimi i qirinjeve aromatik, andaje eshte mire qe t’i inkorporojme qirinjet ne dekorin e tavolines. Ata i gjejme ne forma dhe madhesi te ndryshme duke e bere keshtu te mundshme qe me perdorimin e tyre te shtojme proporcion, stil, lartesi dhe teksture ne dekorin e tavolines. Nese perdorim qirinje aromatik, atehere rekomandoj qe te kemi kujdes dhe mos ti ndezim ne te njejten kohe qirinjet me aroma te ndryshme, pasi qe aromat e tyre mund te mos lidhen mire me njera tjetren dhe si pasoje te kemi nje ere te pakendshme qe pastaje e prishe ate ndjenjen e kenaqesis se perdorimit te tyre.

Lulet e fresketa dhe ato ne saksi
Eshte fakt i pamohueshem se askush nuk mund te gaboj me inkorporimin e luleve ne dekorin e tavolines se kafes dhe, sipas mendimit tim, perorimimi i luleve te fresketa do duhej te ishte imperativ ne dekorin e tavolines. Lulet e fresketa dhe ato ne saksi shtojne teksture dhe ngjyre, ashtu qe edhe tavolina me e thjeshte dhe mbase edhe me e vjetruara do te duket e bukur, e fresket dhe me stil nese ne te eshte e vendosure nje buqete lulesh ose ndonje lule ne saksi.

Akcesorizimi dhe personalizimi

Per nje dekor me shume stil rekomandoj te behet akcesorizimi me gjesende dekoruese te cilat perpos qe munde t’a ken nje funkcion ne tavoline, ato kan edhe nje sentiment per ju. Keto munde te jen gjesende interesante te sjella nga ndonje udhetim, ndonje gjesend i trasheguar nga familja, ose gjera te tilla personale te cilat munde the jen gjithashtu edhe inicues te bisedes, dhe per me teper e bejne qe dekori i tavolines s’uaj te kafes te duket me unik dhe i personalizuar.

Andaj, nese i merni parasysh keshillat e siperme s’i; perdorimi i gjesendeve dekoruese te lartesive te ndryshme (qe munde te arrihet me perdorimin e librave te radhitur njeri siper tjetrit, vazo te ndryshme, qirinjeve me lartesi te ndryshme); perdorimi i teksturave (lulet e fresketa dhe ato ne saksi, si dhe gjesendet me forma dhe finishe te ndryshme), si dhe duke e inkorporuar ndonje gjesend personal ne ate dekor, padyshim se ju jeni ne rruge te mire per te krijuar nje dekor mbreselenes te tavolines s’uaj te kafes.

Reading Corner – How to Set It Up


image via pinterest
The summer weather started fading and leaves will soon change color, so it’s time to gear up for cold and cozy fall and winter weather. For many people, this means picking up a pumpkin spice latte, starting a fire, and, if you’re lucky, curling up under a blanket with a good book.

Is there anything better than reading a good book while you are tilted in your favorite comfortable chair, away from reality and everyday stressful life in the fantastic adventures of literary stories and worlds? I think there isn’t, so why not setting up a reading nook for that matter!

Creating a reading nook in your home will prove to be one of the most rewarding interior decisions. It will always serve as a cozy getaway within your home, an invitation to wind down and relax after a stressful day and a motivation to get started on that big pile of books that’s been sitting on your coffee table!

Tipps for Creating a Reading Corner

Location
There are a few great options for creating a reading corner. Some people like to choose a  space under the stairs to convert, and others like to choose a window seat that gets tons of natural light. Even a closet can be converted into a reading corner. Make sure that your planned area will blend well with the aesthetic of your home.

Pick the Right Spot for a Reading Corner
Reading corners take up a very little footage space. The right spot can be an unused corner in your bedroom, living room or even extra space in a hallway. Before you pick a spot for your reading nook, consider how you feel in the space: Can you make it cozy and comfortable? Will it be quiet? And if you’re cramped and in a space with a lot of interruptions, it will be difficult to get comfortable and focus.

Seating
The key word for your reading corner is comfort. Create comfortable seating area that allows you to relax and to get lost in the pages of a book. Try to keep the style of the chair similar to the surrounding furnishings, but be open to shape and color and consider reupholstering a favorite chair. A chaise lounge will allow you to stretch out, while a cozy chair with foot rest or recliner may work with the room better.

Lighting
While a reading nook with a lot of natural light works best, a good reading lamp or wall sconce can create the cozy feel your space needs. So try a light with a few settings so you can adjust the lighting depending on the time of day and your needs.

Table Space
A small refinished table placed against a reading chair is a must for a reading corner. It will allow you to keep a cup of hot cocoa or tea nearby, or why not a glass of wine also. You can also use the table for a small plant or a vase of flowers. And every object placed in your reading nook should create a relaxing environment.

Reading is a great way to relax, but a reading nook, book nook or reading corner is also a way to add a little comfort and charm to your home.

Here are some beautiful ideas of reading nooks designs hopefully to motivate you to create your own!

Reading corners for litle ones

Kendi i Leximit – Si t’a krijojme ne te tille

Veres po i afrohet fundi, e se shpejti gjethet fillojne te ndryshojne ngjyren. Vrantesirat, shiu dhe te ftohtit do te zevendesojne diellin dhe freskine e mbremjeve verore, andaje eshte kohe te fillojme te mendojme te pergaditemi qe sa me kendshem t’a kalojme kohen e ftofte qe sjell vjeshta dhe dimri!

Per shume kend kenaqesia dimerore munde te jet ndezja e zjarit ne oxhak, ose thjesht strukja nen batanije te bute e te ngroht, ne nje vend komod me nje cokollades te nxehte, caj ose kafe ne njeren dore dhe nje liber te mire ne doren tjeter.

A ka kenaqesi me te mire se te jesh duke e lexuar nje liber te mire perderisa je e ulur ne nje ulese komode qofte ai kolltuk, divan ose shtrat ditor qe te ben te largohesh nga realiteti dhe stresi ditor dhe te futesh ne boten, storjet ose aventurat fantastike qe t’i ofron libri? Une mendoj qe s’ka gje me te mire se kjo, andaj pse mos ta krijojme nje kend leximi!

Krijimi i nje kendi te leximit ne shtepi ose banese do te jet nje preje vendimeve me te mira ne kuader te aredimit e enterierit. Ky kend gjithmone do te sherbej si nje ikje e kendshme nga perditshmerija, perbrenda shtepise s’uaj, nje ftese qe te shkosh aty dhe te ralaksohesh pas nje dite te lodhshme dhe me stres, si dhe nji motivim per te filluar leximin e librave te grumbulluara per lexim dhe studijim.

Cfare te kemi parasysh me rastin e krijimit te kendit te leximit!

Lokacioni
Ka opcione te shumta per krijimin e kendit te leximit. Disa e perzgjedhin qe ky kend te jet afer dritares dhe ta krijojne nje ulese aty, disa e krijojne nje kend te tille perfundi shkalleve, te tjeret kete kend e krijojne ne dhome te dites apo te fjetejes, e disa edhe ne koridor ku ka hapsire te mjaftushme; pra mundesite jane te pafund!

Zgjedhja e vendit adekuat te kendit te leximit
Kendi i leximit kerkon shume pak hapsire dhe vend adekuat mund te jet ndonje kende i paperdorur ne dhomen e gjumit, dhomen e dites, ndonje extra hapsire ne koridor etj. Para se te perzgjedhni kthinen per kendin e leximit konsideroni se si do te ndiheni ne ate vend, dhe se a do te mund te beni ate vend te kendshem dhe te rehatshem? A do te jete qetesi ne ate vend? A do te kete qarkullim te shpesht ne ate hapsire, se poqese do te nderpreheni shpesh ne lexim, atehere do te jet e veshtire qe te fokusoheni dhe te ndiheni komod.

Vendi ku ulemi
Gjeja kyqe ne kendin e leximit eshte eshte komoditeti. Eshte me rendesi qe te krijojme nje vend te rehatshem te uljes i cili do te na ndihmoj qe te relaksohemi dhe humbemi ne faqet e librit. Kjo mund te jet nje karrige e rehatshme e leximit, ndonje kolltuk i rehatshme ndonje otoman i zgjatur i vendosur ne ndonje kend te pershtatshem per lexim etj. Me rendesi eshte, gjithashtu qe stili dhe dizajni i kariges se kendit te leximit te pershtated me mobiljet egzistuese. Otomoani i zgjatur do te na mundesoj qe t’i zgjasim kembet dhe te marim pozite komode gjate leximit, por edhe ndonji karige ose kolltuk me nje jastek dyshemeje ku mund ti vendosim shputat gjate leximit do te ket efekt te njejt relaksues.

Ndriqimi
Perderisa nje kend leximi me ndriqim natyral do te ishte ideal, nje llambe leximi ose llambat ne mure do te mundesojne ndriqim adekuat si dhe do te krijojne nje ndjenje te kendshme qe i nevojetet asaj hapsireje. Pra, ne mungese te drites natyrale ne kendin e leximit munde te instalohet nje llamb (mundesisht spot) me potenciometer ku do te kontrollohet sasia e nevojshme e drites gjate leximit.

Tavolina e vogel
Nje tavoline e vogel sherbyese e vendosur pran karriges ose kolltukut te leximit eshte e domosdoshme ne kendin e leximit. Kjo do te na mundesoi qe aty ta vendosim librin gjate pauzave te leximit si dhe ta mbajme aty pijen tone te preferuar, qoft ai nje caj, cokollade e nxehte ose pse jo edhe nje gote vere, gjithashtu. Aty munde te vendoset edhe ndonje vazo me lule te fresketa ose ndonje ndonje lule ne saksi. Cdo objekt i vendosur ne kendin e leximit duhet te krijoj nje ambient relaksues dhe te kendshem.

Leximi eshte nje menyre e persosur per tu relaksuar, por ne te njejten kohe kendi i leximit i dizajnuar mire eshte poashtu nje menyre e mire qe te shtojme komoditet dhe sharm ne ambientet tona.

Ne fotot me larte i gjeni disa ide shume te bukura te disajnit te kendit te leximit, ide te cilat, shpresoj, do te ju motivojne qe te krijoni nje per veten tuaj.

Crochet Pillows – Summer 2018


If you think that a granny square crochet pieces are outdated and that the idea of incorporating them in your home decor projects can make your space look so granny, than think again!

These fresh looking crochet pillows that were used in this balcony makeover tell us just that!

This “granny” balcony situated in an old city building from a communist era with it’s odd shape (supper long and extremely narrow) was a good candidate for a makeover using these crochet pillows from my Summer Pillow Collection 2018!

Using some used outdoor furniture, some inexpensive decorative items and by incorporating these crisp crochet pillows, I turned this outdate looking balcony into a cool place to chill during hot summer days.

B



The hand made front crochet pillow pieces are made of 100% cotton yarn and attached to pre washed 100% organic white cotton fabric and they were part of my pillow collection – Summer 2018.


These old fashioned pillows made this balkony look fresh and modern despite its odd shape and “age”; so, never underestimate the power of granny chrochet squares. To order pieces from this collection write us at besagmblog@gmail.com! We love to make your spaces looking great for less!

An Appartment Entryway Renovation

There is a lot to dislike when it comes to renovations and the process one has to go through it. It is a lot of mess, dust, debris and what not; but what is to love about them is how rewarding they can be.

No mater how messy and difficult renovations may turn, I still love them and I do not hesitate to undertake such projects because I just love that feeling when some not so pretty spaces, and may I say sometimes pretty ugly ones, turn into a loving space to cherish and enjoy in years to come.

Couple of months ago I was involved in an apartment entryway renovation, which exactly proves what I just said above.

It is a 60’s apartment with an entryway which is quite narrow and long, providing the entry into 2 bedrooms and the livingroom/kitchen on the right, and the bathroom at the front.

On the opposite side from the doors there were built in storage and wardrobe cabinets and I am sure that in the 60’s this looked nice and pretty, but almost 60 years later it was time for a big change.

I worked on a very small budget which allowed only for the new front door cabinets,paint, light fixtures, and the Lion wall art.

There was no money left for the labour so I had to undertake the cleaning and paint job myself. Yes, it was a lot of work, mess, dust and a lot of sweat but, after two weeks of intense labour, everything looked so different, pretty, neat and clean.

The mirror used in this project is the existing one and it was DIY-ed for this project. I will share this DIY in my future postings.

The console table is an DIY from another project and it used to have four pin hair legs. I DIY-ed it, again, for this project by altering the top and removing two of its legs.

The entryway runners were created from an existing sisal rug; another DIY which I will be sharing in my future postings.

This entryway now looks much brighter, clean and neat, just what it is needed for my new interior studio space. I will be running my Home Decor styling busines from this location in the vicitinity of the city center. Although, short in square fottage compareed to my previous studio space, this one has more central location with the plenty of parking space neearby, something that my previous studio space lacked.

Now, are you ready for those BEFORE pics? “….Warning:BEFORE Images you are about to see may appear extremely depressing!!!! Viewers discretion is advised!!!!….”

Small Balcony Styling

Not everyone has an outdoor private space who would be able to go outside and enjoy the fresh air, step in green gras,have a favourite drink among trees and smell the flowers.

However, most of us have a balcony and no matter how small it is we can make it a cosy functional living space, and by adding some greenery, flowers and summer accessories we can turn it into an urban oasis to enjoy it all summer along.

So how to create an inviting outdoor living space in our small balconies where we can’t wait to return from our long day of work and have our well deserved favourite drink?

First, start by planing which layout of furniture would fit best to your balcony situation, number of people that need to be accommodated on a daily basis, the privacy issues and the sun exposure that may need to be addressed and so on. After considering all these factors we ca make a better decision on what furniture to choose and how to lay those pieces out.

When choosing the furniture the comfort is the key when it comes to your apartment’s outdoor space, so adding comfortable seating will turn your outdoor space into the perfect place to lounge.

This is exactly what I applied in this small apartment balcony which I styled early this spring. I used two existing old iron garden chairs and elevated them to a supper comfy seating by adding fluffy custom made cushions.

After choosing the furniture, start adding pops of colour to your balcony. Nothing brings a balcony more to life than fun accent colors. Be bold with your outdoor accessories by incorporating bright, cheerful colors that will put a smile on your face every time you step outside.

If you prefer a more neutral setting, try picking one color to highlight through decorative pillows and flowers. This is what I applied in this balcony.

To cosy up the space and to maybe address the flooring issues (not so pretty tiles or old surfaces) that you may have, adding an outdoor area rug or a runner could be a good solution. This will add warmth and will make your balcony more inviting. This is also a great opportunity to incorporate some texture (like a natural fiber rug), color, or a pattern for some character.

No outdoor space is complete without plants and flowers, so the next step is to create a small garden. Just because you don’t have a backyard to grow a garden, doesn’t mean you have to put an end to your green thumb. Create your own small garden on your apartment balcony by DIYing a wall planter, like this lattice which can either provide support to an ivy planted in a small planter or you can be more creative and hang other plants such succulents, various ferns or herbs.


And lastly bring on the accessories such as wall hangings, candles, jars and everything else that will make your balcony look pretty, and things that you will be using while spending time in it.


Once complete, I assure you that, your well styled balcony will turn into an extra cozy space to unwind in after work, or a spot to entertain friends and family all summer along.

Decorating Around a TV – DIY Project


Earlier, when TVs were enormous and bulky, decorating around them represented a real challenge. Luckily, these days although the sizes of TV sets may be large, they come in very flat and thin shape making it much easier to decorate around them.

There are plenty of ways to style a media stand, however one of my favourite looks is a symmetrical art display around the TV and this is what I did a few days ago for a small living room project in a rental apartment.

The console holding the TV was a classic piece of furniture, and I wanted to create a decorating concept that would somehow relate to this piece of furniture.

However, I also wanted to maintain and apply the eclectic decorating style that I am inclined of. Having this in mind, I decided that I would create a modern wall art pieces, but I would hang them in an old fashioned way so they would,in a way, somehow relate to the classic style of the console.

To create this look I used inexpensive black frames,lined them with off white card stock paper:

inserted a 5 cm wide black self adhesive paper at the centre;

glued a dried spring of eucalyptus on top;

and assembled the frame;

At the back I stapled two pieces of ribbon at each end and tied a bow at the top, and after hanging the first one on the wall I thought they looked so fun and eclectic.

It was a super easy decorating project, but the impact it had on this rather small living room was huge. The room now looks grand and large and everybody just loves it.

Dinning Spot Transformation

BESA


Apartment sizes have lately shrunk drastically, especially those located in big cities. Spare square footage has become a real luxury, so most people are left with an option of “living small”. Furnishing a tiny apartment is quite challenging, especially if you already own furniture which may or may not fit nicely in your new tiny space.

However, no matter of how challenging the furnishing of a small space may be, if you apply a good design, you ma create a feeling of “living big” even in a tiniest apartment space.

Lately, I was involved in an open plan living room project (in a tiny apartment), where I had to fit an existing dinning room table and chairs in a tiny kitchen space; and I also challenged myself to make this space look much bigger, elegant and stylish.

To achieve the bigger space effect I used stripes.

I had a small amount of black leftover paint from a previous project which was just enough to add a few horizontal stripes to the wall where I was planning to fit the dinning table.

Within few hours of light work this spot changed dramatically to this:


For the wall decor I created this three-dimensional wall art.

A simple project where I used existing frames and on top of the glass I glued a set of cutlery. For special effect and to add some colour, I used a red frame, backing of which was removed so the stripe on the wall would be visible.

I used a checked black and white table runner. Black stripes of the runner run opposite of the wall stripes so they create another depth. Adding some table decor made the dining spot look richer and more inviting.

With a few design tricks, within few hours this space looks bigger, prettier and more inviting, so the moral of this post is: You can “live big” in a small space if you apply a good design.

DIY Gold Wall Clock- How I Did It


I get many questions in relation to how I DIY-ed the gold oversized clock used as an accessory for my niece’s bedroom makeover project.

It was an easy DIY done supper fast and,since I found some pictures during the proccess, I am happy to share this project with all my readers.

I used a simple round clock diameter 60 cm, bought in a local supermarket. It was un ugly wall clock, but I already had a picture in my mind on how it will look after I put my hands on it.

Using a screwdriver I took it all apart for making it ready for spray painting.

I started by spray painting the clock frame .

Further, I replaced the clock face, that had roman numbers, with a stock paper spray painted in gold.

Instead of numbers I placed self adhesive black dots, which in fact are the floor protectors used for furniture legs.

Lastly I put back the clock arrows and screwed together other parts of the clock.

It was a super easy DIY project, but with a great impact in the whole design of the room.

Fytyren e ores me numrat romak e zevendesova me nje cope letre hamer te ngjyrosur me spray ngjyre ari dhe ne vend te numrave vendosa rathe te zi gome, qe ne te vertete jane mbrojtes te dyshemes qe vendosen ne kembet e karrigave apo mobiljeve te ndryshme.

Se fundi i vendosa akrepat e ores dhe lidha me kaqavide pjeset tjera te ores, dhe kjo ishte e tera.

Ishte nje projekt shume i lehte i stilit BV dhe qe beri nje impakt te vecante ne dizajnin e dhomes.

Nese inspiroheni te beni dic te tille, deshiroi qe te me shkruani dhe te dergoni foto se si doli projekti juaj.

Bar Stool Covers For Instant Temporary Transformation


Even though my kitchen leather barstools were in a perfect shape, I wanted to give them a new trendy look.

Being covered in leather, they are so easy to maintain; you just wipe them clean once in a while and they stay spotless.

While I love the easy maintenance side of leather I wasn’t loving their boring look so I had to do something which would make my stools supper cool without jeopardising the aspect of easy maintenance.

I came up with a solution; making separate slipcovers for my leather kitchen stools. I made separate slipcovers for the backs and the seats of the stools. I will be using slipcovers for the backs most of the times and, depending on the mood, i will be using those for the seats also.

The cool black and white brushstroke design fabric design was a perfect solution for achieving a supper cool look. The possibility to use slipcovers separately was also a good idea, and the fabric I chose very well combined with existing leather.

To make slipcovers I used pin fit method for each stool, and then I sew them together. They came perfect and really brought a new vibe to my kitchen.

My kitchen is spring ready! How about yours?

Mbeshtjellset e perkohshme te karrigeve per nje ndryshim instant te pamjes se tyre

Edhepse karriget e shankut te kuzhines ishin ne gjendje perfekte, deshiroja qe atyre tu ipja nje pamje te re e qe eshte ne trend.

Karriget egzistuese te mbeshtjella me lekure jane shume lehte per mirembajtje, pasi qe pastrohen lehte dhe shpejte me nje lecke gjysem te lagur.

Megjithate, edhepse me pelqen menyra e lehte e pastrimit te materialit te lekures, nuk me pelqente pamja e merzitshme e tyre ashtu qe deshiroja te beja dicka me keto karriga, por duke mos e vene ne pyetje aspektin e lehte te mirembajtjes se tyre.

Si zgidhje erdha me iden e qepjes se mbeshtjellseve nga nje material me nje dizajn i cili eshte shume i popullarizuar koheve te fundit. I qepa mbeshtjellset e ndara per ulese dhe per mbeshtetese te karrigeve, dhe te cilat do t’e perdoren ndaras ose se bashku varesisht nga disponimi. Materiali i perdorur kombinohet shume bukur me lekuren egzistuese te karrigeve, andaj edhe perdorimi vetem i mbeshteteseve te qepura nga materiali e bene nje kombinim te bukur dhe praktik.

Mbeshtjellset e qepura dolen per bukuri, dhe sollen nje pamje te re dhe super moderne ne kuzhine.

Kjo kuzhine tani eshte gati per pranvere! A eshte edhe kuzhina e juaj gati per pranvere?

DIY Spring Flowering Bulb Arrangement

I love spring! This winter was pretty harsh here in Pristina, Kosova and even though the spring is just around the corner I am impatiently awaiting for the weather to improve, and to start seeing all those pretty bulbs make their way through the soil, and prettify my garden.

However, this does not mean that I had to wait and do nothing until spring comes! Last weekend I picked up a couple of vases filled with hyacinth in a local market and rearranged them in hurricane vases. They came pretty nice and really turned my home on a spring mode. They look pretty and have filled my home with a beautiful scent.

To make this arrangement you will need:

hurricane vase or any other glass vase
white sand
any kind of flowering bulbs – I used hyacinth bulbs

Place a generous amount of sand in a vase. Make a shallow hole in the middle of the sand, and place the bulbs. Add some remaining soil to fill the gaps between bulbs, and you are done.


Thank you for visiting,

Beje Vet – Aranzhman pranveror i zymbylit

Me pelqen shume stina e pranveres! Ky dimer ishte shume i ftohet dhe i gjate ne Prishtine, Kosove e edhe pse pranvera gati sa nuk ka ardhe, une me padurim jam duke pritur qe koha te permirsohet dhe ti shof te gjitha ato lule te bukura pranverore, qe i mbolla ne vjeshte, te ken mugulluar dhe te jen qele per t’a zubukuru kopshtin tim.

Megjithate, kjo nuk do te thot se une duhej te mbetesha pa bere gje ne pritje te pranveres. Vikendin qe shkoj i bleva dy saksi me zymbyla te posa dale nga bulbat e qe shpejt filluan te qelin. E bera rearanxhmanin e tyre duke i voendosur ne vazo te gjata qelqi. Dolen shume bukur dhe vertet e sollen pranveren brenda shtepise e posaqerisht e mbushen tere shtepine me ere te kendshme pranverore.

Per t’a bere nje aranzhman te tille ju nevojiten:

vazo e gjate qelqi
zalle me ngjyre te qelte
cfardo lloj lule pranverore nga bulbat- une perodora zymbyla

Vendos nje sasi te konsiderueshme te zallit ne vazo. Beje nje vrime te ceket ne zalle dhe vendosi lulet. Shto sasi te vogel te dheut per t’i mbushur zbrazetirat ne mes te bulbave, dhe aranzhmani i luleve eshte gati.
