Holiday Table Setting Featuring Plenty of DIY-s

I am not the only one who loves the Holiday season. There are so many reasons to adore this time of year: family get togethers, joy and happiness that is spread around, lights and colours throughout, gift giving/receiving, helping those in need and you name it aaaannd, my favourite, THE FOOD. No Holiday is perfect unless there is a food, and by that i mean plenty and variety of it.

Food tastes always great, but if there is a special setting where the food is served during the Holidays than you take your food to another level of enjoyment.

To make your table look stylish and special doesn’t take to brake a bank. It only takes a willingness, some creativity and a lot of DIY.


So this is how I created this table setting concept for these Holidays and I am over exited with the look I achieved, and also hope that my guests are going to love it too.

I started with a grey tablecloth, and white washed curly placemats which I purchased this spring in Istanbul, Turkey. This tablecloth and the placemats are the only purchase that I made this year for this table setting, all other items I already owned or I DIY-ed.



I will start with the napkins. I got these 10 napkins as a present, but there was no hemming on them; however, they were of a high quality cotton fabric so I really apreciated the gift. I hemmed them using a miter joint method (90 degree angle) and they turned really nice.


To add a glam detail, instead of a ring, I tied the napkins with a black cotton ribbon and gently placed a gold detail on top of the napkin. The gold detail is in fact a DIY treat for the guests, and there will be another post sharing what that treat is and how it was done.

The cutlery is another DIY. In Pristina, where I am at present the prices of the cutlery with gold appearance details are extremely expensive so, as much as I wanted to incorporate such cutlery on my table setting, I was not prepared to pay the top price for it. So I DIY-ed the cutlery, and I will be sharing the process in another post.



The candle holder is a work of a local blacksmith done based on design sketched by me, and the gold part of the candles is another DIY of mine. As you can see they are not perfect and there are candle dripings here and there, but that was the whole idea to have that imperfection on the table. I love the look of the candle drippings. Candle with those drippings is just like the life. Life goes on, just like a candle that keeps lighting up, while getting imperfected and sometimes messy with those drippings; but, it keeps going on while making us happy so we do not find those drippings to be bothersome.




The white paper stars are also a DIY, and I love how they add texture to the table top.



Place cards in this table setting are another DIY, and they turned super, super cute. I will be also sharing how I made them.



Flocked wreaths are DIY too. I just looooove their look. They added such a classy and dreamy look to the whole table set up. Adding them in clusters, really make space feel less formal and fun.



I love my table this year and just hope that my guest will love it too. But wait, I need to cook. Guests are expecting food. Off to kitchen to get started with big cooking……

Happy Holidays



Dekorim festiv i tavolines me elemente dekoruese te tipit Beje Vet (DIY)

Une nuk jam e vetmja qe i gezohet festave te fundvitit. Ka shume arsye per t’i pelqyer keto festa: tubimet me familje, gezimi dhe lumturia qe eshte e perhapur gjithandej gjat ketyre festave, dritat dhe ngjyrat ne cdo skute, dhenja dhe pranimi i dhuratave, ndihma atyre qe kane nevoje, e cka mos tjeter, dheeee me e dashura per mua USHQIMI. Asnje feste nuk eshe perfekte poqese nuk ka ushqim aty, dhe kur them ushqim atehere mendoj shume ushqim dhe llojllojshmeri ushqimi.

Ushqimi gjithehere eshte i mire, por nese eshte i servuar ne ndonje tavoline te dekoruar ne menyre speciale per festa, atehere perjetimi i ushqimit ngritet ne nje nivel tjeter te kenaqesise.

Qe t’a beni tavolinen e juaj te duket me me stil dhe speciale, ju nuk duheni te shpenzoni shume para. Ju duhet vetem pak deshire, pak kreativitet dhe shume gjera mund t’i beni vet.

Pra ja se si e krijova kete koncpet dekori te tavolines per festat e sivjetme te fundvitit, dhe jam shume e lumtur me pamjen e arijtur, dhe shpresoj qe mysafiret e mi gjithashtu do t’a pelqejne.

Fillova me nje mbulese ngjyre gri, dhe me shtroje nenpjatash ngjyre te bardhe te shperlare te cilat i kisha blere ne fillim te vitit ne Stanboll. Kjo mbulese dhe shtrojet e nenpjatave jane te vetmet blerje qe i kam bere per t’a realizuar kete dekor, the te gjitha gjesendet tjera i bera vet (DIY).

Po filloj me salvetat. I kisha fituar si dhurate 10 salveta qe nuk i kishin skajet e kthyera, por ishin nga materiali i pambukut i kualitetit shume te larte. I ktheva skajet duke e perdorur metoden e qepjes se skajit ne kendin 90 shkalle dhe u perfunduan shume bukur.

Per t’i shtuar nje detal glamuros,ne vend te unazes per salveta, i lidha salvetat me nje fjongo te zeze nga pambuku kualitativ dhe e vendosa siper salvetes nje detaj ngjyre ari. Detaji ngjyre ari ne te vertet eshte nje detaj Beje Vet, dhe eshte nje dhurate e vogel per mysafiret, ndersa metoden se si e bera do ta ndaje me ju se shpejtin, ne njerin nga postet e ardhshme.

Edhe luget dhe pirunjet kan te involvuar punen Beje Vet. Ne Prishtine, cmimet e lugeve dhe pirunjeve ngjyre ari ishin tejet te kushtueshme, prandaje edhepse kisha shume deshire ti inkorporoja ato ne dekorin tim festiv, nuk isha e pergaditur te paguaj cmim aq te larte. Se si i bera keto vet, do ta ndaj me ju ne njerin nga postet e ardhshme,

Mbajtesi i qirinjeve eshte pune e salduesve lokal te cilet e realizuan kete detaj ne baze te dizajnit te cilin e skicova me dore te lire.

Yjet e bardha nga letra jan gjithashtu projekte Beje Vet.

Edhe kartat e venduljes per mysafir jane gjithshtu projekte Beje Vet, dhe dolen shume, shume te bukura. Edhe per keto do e ndaj me ju se si i bera ne ndonje nga postet e ardhshme.

Kurorat e zbardhura me debore, jane projekte Beje Vet, dhe shume jan duke me pelqyer se si dolen. Ato i shtuan nje pamje shume me klas tere siperfaqes se dhomes se ushqimit. Duke i vendosur ne grumbuj prej tre e bene qe hapsira mos te duket shume formale.

Me pelqen shume dekori i tavolines kete vit dhe shpresoj qe mysafiret e mij do t’a pelqejne gjithashtu. Por prisni, une duhem te filloj te merem me zierjen…. Mysafiret presin qe te kete ushqim ketu! Ika ne kuzhine te filloj me zierje…

Easy DIY Centrepiece for Holiday Decor

Everyone who knows me, by now know that I love decorating but, as much as I love decorating, I do not like spending to much time on decorating. I always find ways to create fun and decorative pieces or designs that involve minimum of my time. I always had a busy life and, on the other hand I always loved decorating and getting myself involved into such projects, so always managed to mostly create decorative items or settings out of ordinary things found, mostly, around the house.

This centrepiece is one of the examples how one can make a pretty and fun Holiday centrepiece using items you already own. This is what I did day before yesterday after I got a call from the RTK producer to appear, in a very short notice, to chat in their Morning Show about Holiday decorating. The producer also asked me to kindly bring a sort of Holiday centrepiece to be featured during the show.

After accepting the invitation, and being busy with other engagements, I started to get worried, because there was no time for me to go and buy any decorative items for a centrepiece. In panic, the first thing that I spotted in my house was this cloche that was sitting in my kitchen counter filled with green apples ( yes, this is where I sometimes place my fruit, I love my fruit to look pretty ha ha ha)
I filled this cloche with ornaments, found a piece of fabric in the colour which has been trending this year in Holiday decorating and tied it on the top of the cloche, placed the cloche filled with ornaments on a cake stand and fitted those in a flocked wreath that was DIY-ed by me few weeks ago.
For the presentation I also took some of my nicely wrapped gifts, which were placed around the centerpiece and which really complemented it.
So for some of you who are late with Holiday decorating, do not panic. Just look around your house and, in no time you may create something fun and pretty for your Holiday decorating. Hope that you will find some inspiration from this post.

Te gjithe ata qe me njohin, deri me tash veqme e kan kuptuar se mua me pelqejn dekorimet mirepo, perkunder qe me pelqejne ato, nuk deshiroj qe te shpenzoj shume ne dekorime. Gjithehere i gjeje menyrat se si te krijoj dicka te bukur dhe simpatike por duke shpenzuar shume pake kohe.

Simple and Easy Holiday Decor Idea


For all of those out there who lead busy lives, and have no time to do a lot of Holiday decorating I am sharing with you some photos of my Holiday decor which took me no time to put together, and it still looks so festive and happy.

The key in achieving an instant festive Holiday look is incorporating fresh greenery, such as fresh wreaths and garlands, in your decor. The beautiful look and fresh aroma of the evergreen branches of a wreath or garland instantly bring the Holiday spirit alive and adds a sophisticated look to your decor.
To achieve this look, above the fireplace I hung one of the wreaths that I DIY-ed over the weekend, while on the mantel I simply arranged some fresh cut branches of a bush from mu garden. In between the branches I added a few candles of different heights using mix and match candleholders.
For a dramatic look, I placed the bench in front of the fireplace and on top of the bench I placed nicely wrapped gifts and some ornaments. Behind the bench I placed glass vases filled with fresh cut pine branches, a spot lamp.
And this was all I did, and I think that it still looks nice and festive. Moreover, I am happy that it took me no time to put this look together, and even happier that when Holidays are over I will take everything away in few minutes.
Are you a fan of fresh greenery for the Holiday decor?

Holiday Tablescape Featuring a Beautiful Centrepiece


Almost a year has passed since I did this tablescape for an appearance in a Morning show in RTK which is a Republic of Kosova public broadcaster so, before this year comes to an end, I wanted to share with my readers some photos of this tablescape set for this occasion.

For the centerpiece I used a garland which I made to fit this table and along the garland I placed a few candlesticks in white and gold.

For the charger plate I used my fine bone china oversized rectangle plates, and for the serving plates I bought some inexpensive black and white ones which had a great circle design on.

Because last year the checked, black and white items were so IN, i bought 1.50 cm of polyester fabric in this design and made 10 napkins to fit the design of my theme.

To make the guest feel special I created place cards for each guest, and also wrapped nicely some treats for guests which were placed on top of the serving plates.

It was a simple setting, but it came out really neat and nice.

Enjoy the photos and hope you will find in them some inspiration for your table setting for these coming holidays.
Thank you for visiting.


Shtruarje Festive e Tavolines

Kaloi gati nje vit prej se e bera konceptin dhe dizajnin e dekorit te kesaj tavoline per paraqitjen time ne RTK ne emsionin Miremengjesi Kosove, andaje para se te perfundoi ky vit pata deshire qe ti ndaj me lexuesit e mije disa nga fotot e tavolines se shtruar plotesisht.

Per dekorin qendror te tavolines e punova nje gjerdan (garland) qe t’i pershtatej madhesise se tavolines dhe pergjate tije vendosa disa qirinje ngjyre ari dhe te bardhe.

Per pjata baze vendosa pjatat katrore porcelani kualitativ, ndersa per pjatat ku servohet ushqimi bleva disa pjata jo te shtrenjta por qe kishin nje dizajn qe i pershatej konceptit.

Pasi qe vitin e kaluar gjesendet me disajn te katrorve bardh e zi ishin shume ne trend, une bleva 1.50 cm materiali te tille dhe i qepa 10 salvetat te ushqimit nga ky material.

Per ti bere mysafiret te ndihen shume special, i punova kartelat dekorative te vend uljes te cilat kishin emrin e secilit mysafire. Poashtu i mbeshtjella bukur dhuratat e vogla per mysafiret e ftuar dhe i vendosa ato siper pjates.

Tani ju le te shetiteni neper fotot e bashkangjitura dhe shpresoj qe ato do te ju sherbejne si inspirim per dekorin e tavolines s’uaj per festat qe po na afrohen keto dite.

Ishte nje dekorim i thjeshte, por qe dukej shume bukur.

Ju faleminderit qe vizituat kete faqe.


Holiday Mantel Decor – Simple, Quick and Easy

Some of you, I believe, are already done with your holiday decorating, but for those out there who did not do this yet and your busy lives do not allow you to put layers and layers of holiday decor around the house, here is an easy and simple decor idea for your holiday mantel decor.
The main idea of this decor style is to use things that you find around the house and to recreate ways how to make ordinary things look festive.
I created this mantel decor in less then 15 minutes. I used a black tray with gold handles that I already own for a few years now. I just flipped it over, and added a big white snowflake that I had from a previous year. On the mantel I added some greenery, and topped it with some festive candle holders. On one side i placed three paper stars which are a simple DIY.
On the floor I placed two paper/fabric cones which I DIY-ed last year for my mantel decor, and I gave them a new look for this year.
For a modern look, instead of placing a chair on a side of the fireplace, I placed two DIY poufs. You can find instructions for making this pouf here.
So within minutes I sort of achieved a festive look, and I am liking it a lot. Also, the look can be easily changed, depending on the mood, by adding or replacing decor elements on and around the fireplace.
What is your decorating style for the holidays? Would you consider going minimalistic this year? I would love to hear from you!

Dekorim Festiv i Kaminit – Thjeshte, Shpejte dhe Lehte

Besoj se disa nga ju tani me keni perfunduar me dekorimet per festat e fundvitit, megjithate per ata te cilet ende nuk e kan bere kete pasi qe axhendat e tyre te ngarkuara nuk ju mundesojne qe te ndajne kohe per te bere dekorime, ja se si munde te beni nje dekorim te thjeshte, te shpejte dhe te lehte per kaminin t’uaj kete vit.

E ktheva nga ana e pasme dhe i vendosa nje dekor fluske bore siper, te cilen gjithashtu e kisha nga viti i kaluar . Siper kaminit vendosa degeza bredhi nga kopshti, dhe siper tyre vendosa disa mbajtese festive te qirive. Ne njeren ane te kaminit vendosa disa ylleza punim dore nga letra e bardhe, ndersa ne dysheme afer kaminit vendosa konat nga materiali dhe letra e bardhe te punuar vitin e kaluar per dekorin e kaminit. Per t’ju dhene nje dukje te re konat i redekorova dhe ja pershtata konceptit dekorues per kete vit. Per nje pamje moderne, ne anen tjeter te kaminit, ne dysheme, poashtu vendosa edhe dy jasteket e dyshemes (poufs) te qepur rishtazi. Nje te tille e kisha qepur disa vite me pare, dhe instrukcionet per qepje gjenden ne kete link.

Keshtu pra brenda disa minutave arijta te krijoi nje pamje festive te kaminit e cila po duket shume bukur. Gjithashtu, pamja e ketije dekori munde te ndryshohet lehte, varesisht nga disponimi, duke shtuar ose zevendesuar elementet dekorative reth kaminit.

Mannequin Tree – DIY


Since I first saw a mannequin tree on Pinterest few years ago, I always thought that this was such a cool idea. Even though I never thought of making one, I thought that it looks beautiful if used as an alternative to a christmas tree.

Few days ago my niece came over and asked me if I could help her make one. She is in high school and they were having a science party around Christmas time so she thought it would be a good idea to incorporate a mannequin tree in the project of their working group.

I love my niece and despite being supper busy at this time of year, I could not say no to her. As my schedule was busy around Christmas time, we decided to make this tree earlier, so she could enjoy the tree at home before she sends it for a display on the scheduled date of the science party at school.

To make the tree we used 2.30 m X 80 cm chicken wire. The two lose ends were joined together with florist wire to make a skirt.
The upper part of the wire skirt was cut open to 50-60 cm slits on every 25-30 cm. Ends of each slit were put on top of one another making sort of darts.
This step was done in order to take in the wire and make it fit for the waist line of the mannequin.
When the desired waist line was reached by making these “darts” the skirt (wire) was put on the mannequin and was secured with another string wire around the waist.
Afterwards we started covering the surface of the wire with tree branches by securing each of them with florist wire.

We continued filling the empty spaces with smaller branches to create a fuller look.
Lastly, we tied a huge bow around the waist line and a DIY golden necklace made out of golden crepe paper.


My niece loved the look of the mannequin tree, and she spend the afternoon beside the tree by reading and sipping hot cocoa.

Would you consider replacing your traditional Christmas tree with a manequin tree?

Bredhi Kukull – DIY

Para disa viteve, per here te pare e pash ne Pinterest Bredhin Fustan, dhe qe atehere mendova se kjo ishte nje ide shume interesante. Edhe pse kur nuk e planifikoja t’a beja nje te tille, gjithmone mendoja se ky lloj bredhi eshte nje alternative e mire e bredhit tradicional per festat e fundvitit.

Para disa ditesh, mbesa ime erdhi te me pyes se a do i ndihmoja ta beje nje bredh te tille. Ajo eshte nxense e shkolles se mesme dhe se ne shkollen e saj organizohej nje manifestim shkencor, dhe ate ne vixhilje te festave te fundevitit, andaj ajo kishte konsideruar si nje ide te mire poqese grupi i saje pjesmares ne manifesitm do te inkorporonte ne prezentimin e tyre Bredhin Fustan.

Une e dua mbesen time, andaje edhe pse shume e zene ne kete periudhe te vitit, une s’munda t’i them se nuk mund t’i ndihmoj, andaj vendosem qe ta punojme kete bredh menjiher ashtu qe ajo te kete mundesi qe te kenaqej me te deri ne diten kur duhet t’a dorezoj tek grupi i saj punues ne diten kur do te mbahet manifestimi ne shkolle.

Per t’a punuar bredhin ne huazuam nje manekene kukull. Pastaj u furnizuam me 2.30 cm (80 cm gjeresi) rrjete “rrethoje pule”. I bashkuam skajet e kesaj rrjete me tel floristi dhe skajin e siperm te rrjetit e preme duke i bere keshtu carje 50 deri 60 cm ne cdo 25-30 cm. Skajet e ketyre carjeve i vendosem siper njera tjetres per te bere keshtu si lloj brusnesh dhe per t’a ngushtuar keshtu pjesen e siperme qe ti bie taman belit te kukulles. Pasi u be ngushtimi i duhur e vendosem kete rrjete (fustanin) ne kukull dhe e siguram me nje tel te holle duke e kaluar ate neper vrimat e rrjetes perreth belit te kukulles.

Pastaj filluam me vendosjen e degeve te medha te bredhit perreth siperfaqes se rrjetes (fustanit) dhe kur mbuluam tere siperfaqen filluam me vendosjen e degeve te vogla neper zbrastirat e mbetura derisa e mbuluam siperfaqen ne teresi dhe e arritem dendesine e duhur.

Si perfundim e lidhem nje fjongo te madhe rreth belit te kukulles dhe i vendosem ne qafe nje xherdan te punuar nga letra krep ngjyre ari.

Mbesa ime doli shume e kenaqur me pamjen e bredhit kukull dhe e kaloi tere pasditen afer tije duke lexuar dhe shijuar pije nga cokollada e nxehte.

A do t’a konsideronit zevendsimin e bredhit tradicional te fundvitit me nje te tille?

Small Room Makover – Week 6 The Reveal


The reveal day came much faster than I have anticipated, and while browsing the rooms and spaces of the 20 featured designers participating in ORC I was about to FAINT (seriously), seeing that every revealed space there was so breathtakingly beautiful.

Well, this is not something that I can say for myself and the room I worked on. Of course, I never expected that I can produce something that will wow anyone as I had to make this happen within an incredible low budget. However, I can say that I wow-ed myself knowing that I was able to put all this together with such a low budget and make this room liveable and functional again, as well as to cosy it up so it can be enjoyed by the owners for few more years to come.

For all of you who are here for the first time, this was the condition of the room the day I decided to get my hands on.


Because of the budgetary restraints, getting new furniture was out of the reach. Reupholstering was also costly, so we decided to slipcover the sofa/ loveseat duo, and I ended up doing this job because we could not find a willing or a skilful person in town who could make slipcovers.









We needed a desk which will serve as a working desk and/or make up desk, so I designed this hairpin desk which is made out of construction wire found at a construction site dump. The construction wire was cut (by a local blacksmith) into four pieces 156 cm long and bended into a hairpin shape which were attached to a base plate. After the legs were done, I painted them in black and attached them to a piece of 120cm long x 40 cm long x 2 cm thick MDF.
Also there was a need for drapes, so the owner had a pair of unused store bought white sheer panels. White sheer panels were not exactly what I would envisioned for this room, but I just had to peruse them, so in order to add some body to the drapes I lined them and added a decorative black and white band at the upper part of the drape.
No sofa is complete without some pillows, so I made several pillows using this interesting reptile print fabric and this beautiful green velvet.
This simple, yet elegant, gallery wall is created by using few used frames in which were inserted brushstroke art which I DIY-ed for this room.
To add some interest to the room I created this focal point wall by painting this geometric design mural. Also the wall art placed in this wall is a DIY project which was created by using an old useless painting.
So when it comes to sources I wish I had a list of sponsors that provided what I needed to complete this room, but what I can happily say is that I DIY-ed almost everything used in this room and I am very happy the way it turned out.


One thing I am not happy about though is, the PHOTOS. I had only one afternoon available to take photos and, as you can tell, it was not my day. It was a very rainy and dark afternoon and it just did not work. But, hey…life goes on… and there will be another One Room Challange event in spring.

Thank you for visiting and please check the reveals of other guest participants of One Room Challange.

Perditiesimi i Dhomes se Vogel – ORC Java e 6 – Perfundimi

Dita kur behet zbulimi i punes se bere gjate ketyre 6 javeve erdhi shume me shpejte se qe e kam pritur, dhe duke i shiquar dizajnet e zbuluara te 20 disajnerve pjesmares ne ORC gati u alivanosa (pernjimend) kur pash se secili dizajn i zbuluar sot nga ata ishte aq i bukur sa te linte pa fryme.

E po mire, kjo nuk eshte dicka qe munde t’a them per vetveten dhe per dhomen ne te cilen punova. Kuptohet se as qe kam pritur qe te krijoj dicka qe do t’a bente dike qe te thoshte wow, duke pasur parasysh buxhetin jashtezakonisht te vogel. Megjithate, munde te them se arijta ti them vetes wow, per faktin se arijta ta perfundoj dhomen me ate buxhet dhe t’a beje ate te jetueshme dhe funkcionale si dhe ta beje ate qe te shfrytezohet kendshem edhe per disa vitene vijim.

Per te gjithe ata te cilit po vizitoni per here te pare, ja se ne cfare gjendje (me larte) ishte dhoma ne diten ne te cilen vendosa qe ta pranoj sfiden.

Per shkak te kufizimeve buxhetore, blerja e mobiljeve te reja ishte jasht cdo mundesie. Mbeshjellja profesionale e tyre ishe e kushtueshme, andaj vendosem qe t’ju qepim mbeshtjellset, dhe une perfundova te merem me qepjen e tyre pasi qe nuk gjetem ndonje person me aftesi te duhura profesionale qe te merej me qepjen e tyre.

Na nevojitej nje tavoline qe do te sherbente si tavoline pune/grimi, andaj e disejnova kete me kembe ne form kapse flokesh te cilat jan te punuara me material ndertimor (shufra hekuri) te cilat i gjetem ne hekurishte. Shufrat e hekurit u prene ne gjatesi prej 156 cm dhe pastaje u kthyen per tu bere ne form te kapses se flokeve dhe u ngjiten ne pllaken baze. Pasi kembet ishin gati, e bera ngjyrosjen e tyre me ngjyre te zeze, dhe i ngjita ato ne nje pllake MDF 120 co e gjatex 40 cmi e gjere, me trashesi 1.6 cm.

Dhoma kishte nevoje per perde, ashtu qe pronarja i kishte nje pale perde te gatshme te ngjyres se bardhe. Perdet e bardha nuk ishte ajo cfare une e parashikoja per dhomen, por duhej t’i perdorja ato, dhe ne menyre qe te shtoja pake konstukt ne to ju qepa astarin e bardhe dhe e dekorava pjesen e tyre te siperme me shirit bardh e zi.

Asnje kolltuk nuke eshte i kompletuar poqese nuk dekorohet me jastek, andaj i qepa disa te tille duke e perdorur kete material interesant me print te lekures se zvaranikeve si dhe tjeret i punova me material plishi ngjyre te gjelbert.

Ky mur i thjeshte por shume elegant i stilit galeri u krijua duke i perdorur dis korniza te perdorura ne te cilat i vendosa disa punime te punuara nga une ne stilin “levizje brushe”

Qe t’e beja me interesant dhomen vendosa qe muri ballor te jet si pike fokale e dhomes ashtu qe e krijova nje mural me dizajn gjeometrik ne ate mure. Gjithashtu, edhe piktura e vendosur ne murin me mural eshte nje DIY projekt.

Pra kur bie fjala tek gjesendet per mobilimin dhe dekorin e dhomes une do te deshiroja t’a kisha pase nje liste te gjate te sponzorve te cilet kontribuan per regullimin e kesaje dhome, por fatkeqesisht nuk kisha sponsor. Por cka munde te them me kenaqesi eshte se gati cdo gje ne kete dhome esthe e punuar vet, dhe duke u nise nga ky fakt atehere edhe jame shume e kenaqur se si doli kjo dhome.

Megjithate, nje gje me te cilen nuk jame aspak e kenaqur jane FOTOT. E kisha vetem nje pasdite ne dispozicion per fotografim, dhe siq mund te shihni ajo nuk ishte nje pasdite qe ishte ne anen time. Ishte shume vranet dhe erret ate pasdite dhe dite aspak e pershtatshme per fotografim. Por hej….jeta vazhdon…dhe do te kete event te tille prap ne pranvere dhe shpresoj se atehere do te jem me me shume fat.

Ju faleminderit qe vizituat kete faqe, dhe gjeni kohe t’i vizitoni edhe hapsirat tjera te perditesuara nga mysafiret tjere participues te Sfida e Nje Dhome.


Small Room Makover Progress – ORC Week Five


It’s another week of the One Room Challange, and I am getting a bit nervous about the comming week. We have only one week left before the grand reveal, so I will keep this post short and only give you some updates on what I did this week.

I painted the focal point wall, and added some geometrical design by painting two huge triangles. This design makes the room feel larger as it gives a perspective and adds interest to the room. The mural instantly grabs your attention when you enter the room and makes the room feel modern.
DIY artwork was another project that I had to tackle this week, so this is what I created by applying watercolour brushstrokes on a white card stock paper.
After the painting was done, I cut the paper to the desired sizes and run a solid line with a permanent marker around the cut edges. This gives the painted piece a more finished and polished look. Now, making a decision on how to hang them is not going to be easy.

I also hacked this Ikea shelf by painting the sides in black and adding a black electrical tape to the shelf edges so, this way, an inexpensive piece of furniture, will add contrast and will complement the colour scheme of the room.


As of today I will be in hunting around my client’s house to find accessories that will fit our design, thus i leave it here and up to the hunting and styling.

For those curious on where I started, and the progress I made through weeks please check:

Thanks for visiting, and hope you will return again for the final reveal next week.

Java e Peste ne Eventin Sfida e Nje Dhome

Eshte java e peste a eventit Sfida e Nje Dhome (One Room Challange) dhe kame filluar qe te ndihem paksa ne siklet per javen e ardhshme. Ka mbetur vetem nje jave deri te shpalosja e disajnit final te punes, andaj nuk do e zgjas kete postim por vetem do ty ju perditesoj me disa nga punet me te cilat u mora gjate kesaje jave.

E ngjyrosa murin qe do e jete pika fokale e dhomes, ashtu qe e krijova nje dizajn gjeometrik duke i ngjyrosur dy trekendsha te medhenje ne mure me nyanca beige. Ky disajn po e ben qe kjo dhome e vogel te duket me madhe sepse po krijon perspektivesi dhe po shton interesim ne dhome.

Arti DIY eshte edhe nje projekt tjeter me te cilin u more gjate kesaj jave, keshtu qe ja se cfare krijova duke e perdore tekniken “brush strokes” qe njeherit eshte shume e aplikuar gjate ketyre viteve te fundit. Pas ngjyrosjes e bera prerjen e tyre ne madhesine e deshiruar dhe i rrethova skajet e tyre me marker permanent, gje qe kjo ju jap punimeve nje pamje te perfunduar dhe te llustruar. Tani vie ai vendimi i veshtire se si ti pozicionojme ne murin galeri te gjitha keto.

Gjithashtu e bera ridizjnimin e ketij rafti te IKEA’s duke ja ngjyrosur pjeset anesore me te zeze dhe duke ja mbeshtjell me shirit izolues te zi skajet e rafteve , keshtu qe ky raft jo i kushtueshem po krijon kontrast ne dhome dhe po inkorporohet mire ne skemen e ngjyrerave te dhomes.

Tani ka mbetur vetem te “gjahtojme” perreth shtepise se klientit per te gjetur akcesor dekorues per dhomen.

Per te gjith ata te cilet jan kureshtar se me cka fillova, mund te percjellni perditesimet gjate javeve te kaluara me poshte:

Java Dyte
Java Trete
Java Katert

Ktheni ketu te Enjen e ardhshme kur edhe do ta beje postimin e fotove te dhomes se perfunduar.

Pumpkin Spice Latte – Homemade

Having lived too far away from any Starbucks shops for a while, I am starting to crave for my favourite Starbucks pumpkin spice latte this fall. None of such lattes that I tried elsewhere so far, compares to the original Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte; but, luckily I found a great recipe that is even better than the Starbucks recipe (as it contains a real pumpkin instead of a pumpkin spice syrup) so, now, I can make my favourite lattes at home, and I am very happy to share it with you also.

This is my version adapted from this recipe. I usually make a big batch using 10 tablespoons of pumpkin pyre and proportional ammount of pumpkin spice, and it can be refrigerated up to a week.
Ingredients for 2 drinks:

2 tablespoons fresh pumpkin pyre or canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice,
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
400 ml whole milk
1 to 2 shots espresso ( or about 1/2 cup of very strong filter or instant coffee)
100 ml heavy cream, whipped – optional

Heat the pumpkin and spices: In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook the pumpkin with the pumpkin pie spice and a dash of black pepper for 2 minutes or until it’s hot and smells cooked. Stir constantly.
Stir in the sugar: Add the sugar and stir until the mixture looks like a bubbly thick syrup or a paste (it depends from the quality of the pumpkin).


Warm the milk: Whisk in the milk and vanilla extract. Warm gently over medium heat, watching carefully to make sure it doesn’t boil over.
Blend the milk: Carefully process the milk mixture with a hand blender or in a traditional blender (hold the lid down tightly with a thick wad of towels!) until frothy and blended.
Mix the drinks: Make the espresso or coffee and divide between two mugs and add the frothed milk. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, or nutmeg if desired.

Latte me Ereza Kungulli (Pumpkin Spice Latte)

Per dy pije nevojiten:

2 luge gjelle pyre kungulli
Gjysem luge te kafes *ereza kungulli (pumpkin spice) plus dhe ca per dekorimin siper lattes
Piper i Zi- i bluar aty per aty- shume pake
2 luge gjelle sheqer
1 luge gjelle ekstrakt i vertete vanile (ose dy qeska sheqer vanille)
400 ml qumesht
1 ose 2 hudhje (shots) espresso (ose 1/2 filgjani instant kafe ose filter kafe e pregaditur shume e forte)
100 ml ajke te embel (whipping cream), shkopinje kanelle- opcionale

*Reqeta per Ereza Kungulli (Pumpkin Spice) nese nuk e gjeni te gatshme:

1 luge gjelle – kanelle
2 luge te volga caji – xhenxhefil i bluar
Gjysem luge te vogel caji – arez muskati e bluar
Gjysem luge e vogel caji -allspice (eshte kombinim i pipernave)

Ju befte mire dhe kenaquni me shijen qe ju ofron kjo pije dimerore.

Small Room Makeover Progress – One Room Challenge Week Four

Like in a small puzzle, bit by bit, things are starting coming together in this little room makeover that I decided to challenge myself with in this fall 2016 One Room Challenge Event.

For me, the event has proven to be a reeeal challeng considering the tininess of the budget that I am working with. I know that I keep winning about it but, really, I am in a big trouble as I already run out of the projected amount; so, to make this project come to an end I am using my all DIY skills and I am repurposing some of my unused stuff stored in my attic.

So, these are the updates:

I managed to paint the legs and assemble the console table/working desk, and decided to arrange the hairpin desk legs in a half circle position. I was worried at first about the stability of the desk by arranging the legs this way, but as the desk is placed against the wall it proved to stand quite stable, and it looks quite interesting.

Making and designing pillows is a thing that I always like to do with a big pleasure so I made a few of them for this project too.

This is one of the pillows that I made using this beautiful green velvet:

and to add some pattern I found this interesting linen fabric with a beautiful reptile print.
As far as the sewing projects is concerned I also designed and made this “double deck” pouf. I call it double deck because is twice the height of standard poufs found at stores. It came out really nice and I am loving it.
Hunting in my attic the other day, I found plenty of frames so I am planning a gallery wall to be displayed above the sofa. Now I have to make a big decision what it should be put into those frames!
Well, this was all for this week and I am sure that other guest participants and 20 featured designers/bloggers had a busy week too.

Hope to see you again here.


Progresi ne Dekorin/Perditesimin i Dhomes – Java e Katert ne eventin “Sfida e Nje Dhome”

Sikurse ne nje puzzle te vogel, pak nga pak, gjerat kan filluar te krijojne nje teresi ne dekorin e kesaje dhomeje te vogel me te cilen une vendosa te mare pjese si mysafire ne eventin Sfida e Nje Dhome- Vjeshta 2016.

Per mua eventi deshmoj te jet shume sprovues, dhe ate per faktin se buxheti i ndare per kete projekt ishte shuuume i vockel. E di se jame duke bere shume zhurme lidhur me buxhetin, por me te vertete jame ne hall te madh pasi qe veqme e kam shpenzuar ate krejte, dhe po me duhet qe ti fus ne pune te gjitha aftesit e mija DIY (beje vet) si dhe t’i perdori disa nga gjesended e mija te paperdorura dhe te strehura ne nenkulm ne menyre qe t’a perfundoj projektin e nisur.

Pra te filloj me raportin e progresit te bere gjate kesaje jave:

Arijta qe ti ngjyrosja kembet e tavolines dhe ta beje montimin e saje, dhe vendosa qe kembet e tavolines t’i veje ne forme gjysem harkore. Fillimisht isha paksa hezituese pasi qe nuk isha e sigurt per stabilitetin e tavolines me kembe te pozicionuara ne kete menyre. Megjithate, pasi qe tavolina do te qendroj e mbeshtetur plotesishte ne mur, u vertetova se ka stabilitet te mjaftueshem andaj edhe vendosa ta le ne ate menyre. Kembet e vendosura ne kete menyre po duken shume bukur dhe po e bejne qe kjo tavoline e thjeshte te duket shume interesante.

Dizajnimi dhe qepja e jastekve eshte nje prej gjerave me te cilat merem me shume entuziazem dhe kenaqesi, ashtu qe per kete projekt i bera disa prej tyre.

Ky eshte njeri nga ata (shih foton me larte) te cilin e dizajnova dhe qepa duke perdore si material kadife te gjelbert shume te bukur dhe shirit te pambukut ngjyre bezh,dhe per te shtuar pak llojllojshmeri, e gjeta kete material (shih foton me larte) te bukur nga lini me nje dizajn te reptilve dhe qe do te duket shume bukur dhe do te kombinohet mire me jastek tjere.

Per sa u perket projekteve te qepjes per kete dhome, gjithashtu e dizajnova dhe qepa kete ulese (a.k.a POUF) te cilin po e quaj “dykateshe” pasi qe eshte e lartesise se dyfisht nga ato standardet qe i gjejme neper shitore. Doli per bukuri, dhe eshte duke me pelqyer shuuume!

Duke gjahtuar ne nenkulmin tim keto dite, gjeta nje mori kornizash te cilat i pastrova nga punimet qe ishin ne to dhe po planifikoj qe t’a krijoj nje galeri mur siper sofes. Tani vie ai momenti i rendesishem dhe i veshtire i vendimit se cfare te vendoset brenda atyre kornizave!!!

Ja pra kjo eshte e tera sa i perket kesaj jave dhe jam e bindur se edhe pjesmaresit tjere mysafir si dhe 20 dizajnerat/blogerat e perzgjedhur kane pasur jave te ngjeshur gjithashtu.

Per te gjith Juve qe jeni te interesuar te shihni progresin e punes gjate javes se dyte dhe trete, ju lutemi klikoni ketu dhe ketu.

Elegant Fall Front Porch Decor – Pumpkin Succulent and Mums Floral Arrangement

This year I may be a bit late with fall decor, but seeing all those pumpkins and mums that have flooded marketplaces, I just had to find time to decorate a spot in my house to set myself in a real fall mood by using these standard fall decor items.

I like to come up with creative ways of pumpkin decoration like this one that I did a few years back , but this year I decided that the orange colour is OK but the pumpkin will serve as a vase for mums and succulents grown in my garden.
I created this interesting floral arrangement using yellowish mums and succulents that were carefully arranged in a diagonally cut pumpkin. As you can see in the photos, I started with a small size orange pumpkin which was cut diagonally. To get a precise cut I marked the line with a masking tape and then run a cut with a sharp knife. After deseeding the pumpkin, I started arranging the flowers, starting with the mums first and then arranging the succulents carefully. I placed both pieces of pumpkin on a black tray and ended up with this beautiful arrangement. The upper cut part of the pumpkin piece with a stem was put up side down and lifted up from the tray base by using a candle holder, just to give an illusion that this piece is floating around. This was a very fun, quick and easy project done within an hour.

After finishing the arrangement, I decided that it would look beautifully on my little porch, and I was absolutely right.

It looks like that mums and succulents make a great combo, and when placed in a pumpkin surely enhance the fall feeling as well as enjoyment of beautiful fall colours.

If you are a fan of minimalistic decor, or have a very small porch or front door area, then these kind of arrangements are a perfect solutions to set your home into a fall mood, enhance the curb appeal, and create and make your home feel welcoming.










If this project inspired you to make something similar please let me know. I would love to see how your’s turned out.

Dekor Elegant i Hyrjes se Shtepise – Aranzhim dekorues i kungullit me krizantema dhe bime sukulente.

Kete vit jam vonuar paska per sa i perket dekorit vjeshtor, por duke i pare te gjithe ata kunguj dhe krizantema te te gjitha ngjyrerave neper shitore dhe gjetiu, u inspirova dhe mu desht patjeter qe te gjeja kohe per te dekoru ndonje hapsire te shtepise dhe keshtu t’a sillja veten ne nje disponim te vertete vjeshtor me perdorimin e kungujve dhe luleve vjeshtore.

Kam deshire qe gjithmon te vie me ndonje ide kreative per sa i perket dekorimit me kunguj sikurse ky dekorim/ngjyrosje te cilen e kisha bere para disa viteve, por kete vit vendosa se ngjyra origjinale e portokallt eshte ok, por kesaje radhe kungulli do te sherbej si vazo per mbjelljen e luleve dhe sukulenteve te kultivuara ne kopshtin tim.

E krijova kete aranzhim interesant te luleve duke perdorur krizantema te verdha dhe sukulenteve te vendosura me kujdes ne zbrazestiren e kungullit te prere ne diagonale. Siq mund te shihni ne fotot me larte, fillova me ne kungull te madhesise mesatare. Per ta bere prerjen sa me diagonale, e vendosa nje shirit maskues ne vendin ku duhej te behej prerja dhe pastaj kalova neper te me nje thike te mprehte. Pas heqjes se farave nga brendesia e kungullit fillova me mbjelljen e luleve dhe aranzhimin e sukulenteve per reth. Te dy pjeset e kungullit i vendosa ne nje tabake te zeze dhe si rezultat perfundova me nje aranzhim te bukur si ai ne fotot me larte.

Pjesa e siperme e kungullit (doreza) eshte ngritur nga niveli i tabakes duke e vendos ne nje mbajtes te qiririt ashtu qe duket se qendron i varur. Ky ishte nje projekt shume i shpejte i lehte dhe kenaqesi per t’u punuar dhe qe u finalizu brenda nje ore; E te gjithe ne, apo jo, i dojme keto dekore te cilat nuk na marin shume kohe, duken shume bukur dhe na bejne te gezuar.

Pasi e perfundova, vendosa qe te veja ne pjesen e hyrjes se shtepise pasi qe mendoja se aty do te dukej bukur; dhe kisha pase te drejte, sepse po duket interesant dhe te bene te buzeqeshesh cdo her kur kthehesh ne shtepi nga nje dite e lodhshme pune.

Si duket lulet vjeshtore dhe sukulentet krijojne nje kombinim te shkelqyeshem, dhe poqese vendosen “ne kungull” atehere e sfortesojne ate ndjenjen vjeshtore si dhe kenaqesin e perjetimit te ngjyrerave vjeshtore.

Nese jeni adhurues i dekorit minimalistik, ose keni ndonje hapsire shume te vogel para shtepise atehere nje aranzhim si ky do te ishte nje zgjidhje perfekte qe ta veje shtepine tuaj dhe juve ne nje disponim vjeshtor, e te beje qe shtepija juaj te duket mikepritese dhe e bukur.

Nese ky postim ju inspiroi qe te beni dicka te tille, atehere me shkruani! Kisha pase deshire te shof se si doli aranzhimi i Juaj!

Sofa/Loveseat Slipcovers – One Room Challenge Fall 2016 – Week Three

The third week of One Room Challenge event is already here. It is crazy how fast the time flies during this challenging event. If you are new here, thanks so much for checking my Small Room makeover out.  You can check out my first post related to this makeover if you’d like to get reminded what I started with when I entered the One Room Challange event.

During this week I made a lot of progress despite the mountain of challenges that I faced along the way.

First, we got rid of the two bulky chairs that were suffocating the room. One of the chairs was part of the set, and we decided that it has to go regardless the emotional attachment of the owner to it. We put it at the curb side, and it vanished in less than 15 minutes, as someone was eagerly waiting for us to damp it there. The other chair, which was in a better state was relocated to another room.

As I mentioned in my previous post the owners have allocated a very small budget for this makeover, therefore it was very difficult to start working on a design plan considering that we had a tiny budged, and a bare room with only a worn sofa bed and a love seat.

But, there was no time for winning so I rolled up my sleeves and started working with a full speed.

First, I had to deal with the worn furniture and make them usable again, so I decided to slip cover them. In Kosova, where I live at the moment, it is extremely difficult to find a business or seamstress who would be willing or be able making custom made slipcovering. I am saying this because this is the first challenge that I faced in the process. After purchasing the fabric, I contacted the seamstress that I usually engage in my projects, and unfortunately she was very hesitant to undertake the project saying that she was not sure whether she, or anybody else for that matter, could do a god job on slip coverings. Fair enough! After she denied, I knew that a search for somebody who could do the job must stop here as the chances to find a skilful person to do a good job, within my timeframe, were slim, so I had to assig this project to myself. I had to do the work in the evenings as during the day I was busy with other projects. It took me four evenings to finish this project, but the slip covers came out exactly how I envisioned them. I am so in love with the way they turned out.The slip covers have completely changed the look of the old furniture, and will surely infuse a new vibe into this dated room.

Before I started I gathered some inspiration as seen below


Then, I started the messy work of making slip covers:
I used about 10 meters (with 1.40 cm) of white untreated denim fabric for both the sofa and love seat, and I washed it in order to get it shrank before the use. However, I was short for about 3 metres so I had to use another white fabric for underneath the cushions.I worked each piece at the time as everything had to be measured and cut for each individual corner of the sofa/loveseat. Once i cut the side pieces I put them on the sofa/loveseat and attached them inside out with pins. As i finished this step, I sewed them together and turned them inside out and put them on sofa.




There were some further small adjustments that needed to be done, but other then that they fitted like a glove once they were finished.


Here are some picks of the ongoing pillow and drape project.drapepillow-green

Qepja e Mbulesave te Kolltuqeve – Sfida e Nje Dhome- Vjeshte 2016

Ja erdhi edhe java e trete e eventit Sfidat e Nje Dhome (One Room Challange). Eshte cmenduri se sa shpejt koha ecen gjate ketije eventi. Nese e vizitoni per here te pare kete bllog gjate ketije eventi, Ju falemnderoi shume per interesimine juaj reth dekorimit/perditesimit te dhomes me te cilen mare pjese ne kete event. Ju munde te shihni ketu postin tim te pare te ketije eventi per te pare gjendjen fillestare te dhomes.

Gjate kesaje jave, edhe perkunder nje grumbulli sfidash me e cilat u ballafaqova, eshte bere progres goxha i madh ne dhome.

Filluam me reduktimin e mobiljeve ashtu qe i hoqem dy nga kolltuqet te cilat po e ngulfatnin dhomen. Njeren, ajo e cila ishte pjese e kompletit dhe me te cilen pronari kishte paksa lidhje emocionale, vendosem qe ta “hudhim” jasht. E vendosem ne skaj te rruges dhe kur shiquam brenda 15 minutash ajo veqme ishte zhdukur, dhe te linte pershtypjen se dukej se dikush vecme po priste qe t’a hudhnim aty.

Siq e permenda edhe ne postin e kaluar, pronaret kane ndare buxhet tejet te vogel per kete projekt andaje edhe ishte shume e veshtire te fillohej me planifikim pasi qe, duke pas parasysh gjendjen e mobiljeve dhe dhomes ne pergjithesi, nuk dije se kah te ja mbaje.

Por, i lash menjane akesat pasi qe koha eshte shume e shkurt deri ne perfundimin e ORC eventit, i pervjela menget dhe fillova me punen pa humbur kohe.

Fillimisht duhej qe te meresha me mobiljet e vjetruara ashtu qe vendosa qe t’i mvishja ato me mbulesa te qepura. Ne Kosove, aty ky jetoj per momentin, eshte shume veshtire qe te gjesh ndonje bisnes ose robaqepese qe eshte e gatshme ose ka shkathtesi te duhura qepese per t’i punuar mbulesat e qepura te mobiljeve. Po e them kete pasi qe kjo eshte njera nder sfidat e para me te cilen u ballafaqova ne kete proces. Pasi qe e bleva materialin, kontaktova me robaqepsen te cilen e angazhoi kohe pase kohe ne projektet e mija, dhe per fat te keq ajo hezitoi qe te filloj me punen me arsyetimin se nuk kishte qepur ndonje gje te tille perpara dhe s’ishte e sigurt se ajo ose dikush tjeter do t’ia dilte mbane kesaje pune. Shume fer! Me refuzimin e saj, kerkimi i nje robaqepseje tjeter perfundoi pasi qe e dija qe shanset e gjetjes se dikujt qe do t’a perfundonte projektin me sukses dhe me kohe ishin shume te vogla; andaj edhe e mora persiper qepjen e tyre. Me duhej qe t’a beja qepjen gjate oreve te mbremjes pasi qe gjate dites isha e zene me projekte tjera. Me jan dashte gjithsej kater mbremje resht qe t’i perfundoja, por ato perfundimisht dolen saktesisht ashtu si i paramendoja, dhe jan duke me pelqyer shume se si dolen. Mveshjet e qepura te kolltuqeve e ndryshuan plotesisht pamjen e mobiljeve dhe jam e sigurt se ato do t’i sjellin kesaj dhome te vjetruar “frekunca” krejtesisht tjera.

Para se te filloja gjeta inspirim ne koltuqet me mbulesa te qepura si ne keto fotot me larte.

Dhe pastaje fillova me punen shume te nderlikuar te qepjes se mbulesave te kolltuqeve, pune te cilen po e ilustroj me fotot me larte.

Perdora 10 metra (gjeresia 140 cm) te materialit denim te pambukut te paperpunuar per te dy pjeset, por me nevojiteshin edhe 3 metra te cilat nuk i kisha, andaj mungesen e tyre e zevendesova me material tjeter te bardh te cilin e perdora per qepjen e pjeseve perfundi ulseve.

E preja dhe e qepja secilen pjese veq e veq pasi qe cdo pjese e cdo kend duhej qe te matej me saktesi para se te pritej dhe qepej. Pas prerjes se pjeseve anesore, i vendosa ato ne sofa kah ana e jashtme (ftyra e materialit brenda) dhe fillova ti bashkoj pjeset me gjilpera me koke. Pastaje e beja qepjen e pjesve veq e veq duke i percjelle gjilperat me te cilat i kisha ngjiture pjeset. Pas ngjitjes se te gjitha pjeseve, e beja ngushtimin ose prerjen e teprices se materialit duke e bere keshtu agjustimin e qepjes sipas nevojes. Pas perfundimit, e veshja pjesen e jashtme te sofes me produktin e qepur.

Pas perfundimit nevojiteshin edhe disa intervenime te vogla si ato ne foto me larte, por perveq ketyre imtesirave cdo gje ishte ne regull.

Me larte mund t’i shihni fotot e projektit te perdes dhe jastekve qe jane ne pune e siper per dekorin e dhomes ne fjale.

Small Room Makeover – One Room Challange Guest Participant


This is the first year that I am taking part as a guest participant in the newest One Room Challange . For those of you who wonder what the One Room Challenge (or the ORC) is, it is an event that happens twice a year and is put together by the incredible Linda of Calling it Home . The event starts with a group of 20 talented designers selected to transform a room in a short six weeks. The rest of us get to be guest participants that start a day later.

I missed posting on the first week, but i think that it is never too late so here I am on the second week of this challenge showing you the room which I am expecting to transform into a place that you would love to spend some time in.

So here’s where I am starting…..




This place is an old condo room with a matching set of sofa, loveseat, and a chair purchased over 27 years ago and which were used, if I may say, to death.

The room was used as a study room and as a spare bedroom for guests. Over 25 years nothing has changed in this room, and it was about the time to freshen it up a bit. However, the biggest challenge in this project is going to be the super low budget that the owners have allocated for this room update. But, I believe that everything is possible if there is a good will mixed with some good luck (I hope).

Therefore, lets the fun begin, so I happily invite you to follow my journey through these coming weeks as I try to redecorate and freshen up this space as well as the challenges I may face during this journey.

Please take time to check the progress of the work of the 20 designers who are taking part in the One Room Challange as well as other guest participants, where you may get tons of inspiration and learn on the hottest trends in home decor.

Ridekorimi/Perditesimi i nje dhomeje te vogel

Kjo eshte hera ime e pare si pjesmarese mysafire e eventit te ashtuquajtur One Room Challange (Sfidat e Nje Dhome). Per juve qe pyesni se cfare eshte ky event, One Room Challange ose ORC eshte nje event i cili organizohet dy here ne vit nga Linda nga blogu i ashtuquajtur Calling It Home Eventi fillon me nje grup prej 20 dizajnerve te perzgjedhur qe e transformojne nje dhome brenda gjashte javesh, dhe cdo jave postojne progresin e arijtur gjate asaj jave. Te gjithe pjesmaresit tjere, sikurse une, participojne si mysafire dhe gjithashtu postojne lidhur me dizajnet e tyre.

Fatkeqsisht, une nuk arijta qe te postoj ne javen e pare te ketije eventi, por mendoj se kur nuk eshte vone, pra ja ku jam ketu ne javen e dyte te ketije eventi sfidues ku e paraqes dhomen te cilen do t’a transformoj ne nje hapsire te kendshme ku secili do te deshironte te kalonte nje pjese te kohes ditore.

Ja se me cka po filloj…. (shih fotot me larte)

Kjo eshte nje dhome e nje baneseje te vogel ne te cilen eshte nje komplet tre pjesesh i kolltuqeve te cilat jane te vjetra mbi 27 vjet dhe te cilat jane perdorur vazhdimisht keshtu qe duken plotesisht te hargjuara, por konstrukcioni i tyre eshte ende shume i forte dhe jane ne gjendje te mire.

Dhoma eshte perdore si dhome pune si dhe dhome fjetje per mysafire. Per me se 25 vite asgje nuk ka ndryshu ne kete dhome andaje ka qene edhe koha e fundit qe te ndermiren masa per ripertritjen e saj. Megjithate, sfida me e madhe do te jet buxheti shume i vogel te cilin pronaret e kane siguru per kete projekt. Por une mendoj se cdo gje eshte e mundur nese egziston vullneti i mire.

Pra te fillojme me kenaqesine dekoruese te radhes, dhe ju ftoj qe te me percillni ne rrugetimin tim gjate ketyre javeve ku do ti dokumentoj perpjekjet dhe sfidat e mija reth dekorimit te kesaj dhome.

Nese gjeni kohe munde te percjellni edhe progresin e punes se 20 Dizajnerve te One Room Challange si dhe participuesit tjere mysafir ku do te gjeni shume inspirim dhe do te njohtoheni me trendet me te reja te dekorit te enteriereve.

Laundry Room Organisation Idea

We all love fresh and crisp clothes and linens, but may I say that none of us really enjoys spending time doing laundry; especially if the laundry is done in a space like the one below.
Laundry before
This laundry room lacks space, organisation, and it is profoundly boring so it definitely needed some attention. I had only two hours available to come up with an idea on how to organise this laundry room and to actually make it functional, so this is with what I came up with.

I used whatever was available around the house and I ended up with this industrial chic style laundry room.
Shelving: IKEA, modified by spray painting in black the railing
Laundry baskets: Next Home, Modified by adding the gold door labels found at e local supermarket
White storage baskets; IKEA,
White Plastic Bins – Reused freezer bins lined with withe fabric and decorated with black ribbon
Laundry Print: Downloaded from this website
Black and wite Wall Art- By BESA GM
Laundry Detergent Holder: DIY using a glass vase, cake stand and a stainless steel measuring cup for measuring detergent loads.
Liquid Softener Bottles: Recycled brandy bottles
White fresh roses – Straight from the garden.

Hope this post will insipire you for your laundry room project. If you do not have time to tackle such projects and for more design and decor ideas write at or call at the number available at our website. We would be happy to hear from you and helping you resolve your design and decor dilemas.

Shportat e lavanderise:Next Home, te modifikuara duke ju vendose pllakat signalizues ngjyre ari te blera ne supermarketin lokal
Kutite e bardha nga materiali per gjesende te imeta; IKEA
Shportat e bardha te plastikes: Shporta te ricikluara te frizit te mbeshtjella perbrenda me material dhe te dekoruara me shirit te zi.

Marble Console Table For Your Entryway and How To Style It

My recent design is this stylish custom marble console table which is used in an entryway, but in reality it can be placed everywhere be it in your living room used as a sofa table, in your bedroom as a make up table, in your home office as a place where you can stylishly place your files or other items and, depending on your creativity, the list just goes on and on about the ways you can use this table .
Used in this entryway this table echoes the aesthetics of this home and, the way it is decorated, it greets the owners in style as well as creates a warm welcoming for their guests, family and friends.
A carefully decorated entryway is your home’s way of saying have a fabulous day or welcome back and leave all troubles at the door. Moreover, it should be functional, tidy and stylish too. A good entryway should be well-edited, so when you start styling it go slowly by finding the pieces that complement your style.
This marble console table, for example, sets a sleek tone for this entryway. It is amplified by the statement wall art, lamps and other decorative accessories such as wooden tray, layered with a book and a box for storing sunglasses keys as well as other items. Layering and accessorising a console table makes the entryway be functional and adds to its aesthetics.
An oversized glass vase placed right to the door serves as an umbrella holder for those rainy days, as well as for placing seasonal decor or other trendy decorative items such as these palm branches. Tropical decor is everywhere these days, so incorporating it in a small dose somewhere around the house jazzes up the space and makes your place look updated.
So, styling a welcoming entryway is an easy and fun if you follow these five simple tips:

1 Invest in a proper-sized table
2 Add adequate lighting
3 Hang a mirror for touch-ups on the go, or a large scale art for a bold statement
4 Use a small tray, box or a decorative dish for keys, sunglasses etc.
5 Bring decorative accents into the mix

Items in this entryway:
Custom marble/iron table – designed by Besa -BESA GM Interiors
Oversized wall art – by Besa – BESA GM Interiors

Anna & Elsa – Frozen Birthday Theme

My super cute niece Hana turned five yesterday and since she adores Anna and Elsa from Frozen, her mother and I wanted to make her a surprise by decorating Hana’s 5th birthday event with a lot of her favourite colour PINK and beloved Anna and Elsa dolls. As a result we ended up with a very soft and elegant pinkish Frozen theme which was adored by the birthday girl and all her little friends.

Enjoy the pics.

DIY Starbust Mirror


I love starburst mirrors, and I have seen many beautiful ones out there which come with a very high price tag. I have also seen hundreds of DIY ones done by creative bloggers, and most of them are as beautiful as the store bought ones, but I have never seen one done the way I did my version of this mirror.

I was working on a project and I needed a starburst kind of mirror. Since it was impossible to find one in the area we live, I had to turn to my DIY skills and make one. However, I wanted to challenge myself during the process, and started looking for unusual materials for this project; so decided that the plastic zip ties would fit the definition of “unusual” in this case.

I used a plastic round mirror as a base. I started by taking off the mirror and started arranging and hot gluing the plastic ties around the back side of the mirror frame. After arranging about 200 plastic ties around the frame I spray painted (coper) everything and left it to dry overnight.
Next, I hot glued the mirror on to the frame and hot glued a rope on the inside and outside corners of the frame. Lastly, I attached a string at the back of the mirror to serve as a hook.
That was all. The starburst was ready to be hung, and after being hung it seemed that it was spreading some positive vibes around.

Are you keen of making one? If so, try it out and send a picture showing how your’s turned out.

Thank you for reading.

P.S. The DIY starburst mirror using rope and plastic ties also known as zip ties first appeared on BESA GM blog and it is my original idea, work and design. If using this idea please make a reference to this post. Thank you.

DIY Pasqyre YLL

Me pelqejne shume pasqyret ne form te Yllit Shkelqyes, dhe me ka rastise qe ti shofe disa te tilla shume te bukura te cilat vijne me nje cmim shume te larte. Gjithashtu kam pare shume keso lloj pasqyresh te versionit DIY (te bera vet) te punuara nga blogerat kreative, dhe shume nga keto pasqyra jane po aq te bukura sa edhe versionet e blera ne shitore, por asnjihere nuk me ka rastise te shof ndonje e cila eshte e punuar ne menyren se si une e punonve kete timen.

Isha duke punuar ne nje projekt dhe me nevojitej nje pasqyre e tille. Pasi qe ishte e pamundur te gjeja nje te tille ne vendin ku isha, atehere u desht qe t’i veja ne perdorim aftesite e mija DIY qe t’a punoja nje te tille. Megjithate, une deshta t’a sfidoj veten pergjate ketije procesi, dhe fillova te shiqoj per materiale jo te zakonshme qe do ti perdorja per kete projekt; andaje, vendosa se lidheset plastike e permbushin ate definicionin a materialit “jo te zakonshem” per kete rast.

Perdora nje pasqyre te rumbullaket me kornize plastike si baze. E hoqa pasqyren nga korniza dhe fillova me radhitjen dhe ngjitjen e lidheseve plastike ne pjesen e pasme te kornizes. Pasi i radhita dhe i ngjita me silikon te nxehte afro 200 sosh reth kornizes, i ngjyrosa te gjitha me ngjyre sprej (baker) dhe e lash qe ngjyra te thahet plotesisht gjate nates. Pas tharjes e ngjita pasqyren siper dhe i dekorova skajet e saje te brendshme dhe te jashtme me litare. Se fundi i bera nje varese pas per ta varur ne mur.

Kjo ishte e tera, pasqyrja YLL ishte e gatshme te varej, dhe pasi u var ne mur ajo dukej se po rezatonte vale pozitive ne ate hapsire.

A jeni te interesurar qe ta beni edhe ju nje te tille? Nese po, dhe e beni nje te tille atehere dergoni foton per te treguar se si doli e juaja.

Ju faleminderit qe vizituat kete faqe.

P.S. Ky version i pasqyrjes YLL i punuar me litare dhe me lidhese plastike eshte paraqitur per here te pare permes BESA GM blog dhe eshte ide dhe dizajn origjinal si dhe punedore nga Besa ne BESA GM Interiors. Nese e perdorni kete ide, ju lutem i beni reference ketije posti. Ju faleminderit!


Custom Tufted Bench


Benches of all sizes, forms and designs are quite handy where ever we place or use them. They can be placed in entryways to provide seating when wearing or taking off the shoes; in the bedrooms at the end of the bed; in living rooms to provide extra seating; in dinning rooms instead of individual seating etc.

They come in variety of sizes, materials and designs, but sometimes it is hard to find that “perfect one” that would suit your taste and fulfils your criteria of functionality and design.

For months I was looking to find that “perfect bench” to place at the end of the bed in our guest room. Searching for the bench in local stores turned futile, so the only option left for me was to make one from scratch, and …..(drums please) this beauty was born:
I was inspired by a photo found on Pinterest and then I started researching on how I could make this bench “happen”.

First I visited the local craftsmen to see which iron profiles they cary that would fit my design. Once I found the desired shape and size of the iron profile I draw the sketch with the exact measurements and gave a detailed oral explanation to the craftsman about how the finished project should look.

After the iron base was completed I purchased a piece of plywood cut to the upper size of the bench, 10 cm thick foam, batting, and I already had the fabric which was a gift from my sister, and headed to an upholsterer. Within few hours later I ended up with a very attractive and unique bench which is being used as a prototype for all of those who want to have one made.
Now these benches are being made by special orders by contacting us through our e mail address at

Kolltuk ne Forme Banke
Uleset ne forme bankash te te gjitha madhesive e dizajneve jane shume te pershtatshme per perdorim. Ato mund t’i vendosim ne hyrje te shtepise apo baneses per perdorim gjate mbathjes dhe zbathjes; ne dhoma te fjetjes tek fundi i shtratit; ne dhomat e dites per te shtuar vende te uljes; ne trapezari ne vend te karikave individuale etj.

Ato mund te ken forma, dizajne dhe materiale te ndryshme, por nganjihere eshte veshtire t’a gjesh ate banken “perfekte” qe i pershtatet shijes tende dhe qe i permbush kriteret e funkcionalitetit dhe dizajnit te deshiruar.

Me muaj isha duke kerkuar nje banke te tille “perfekte” qe ta vendosi tek shtrati ne dhome te mysafirve, Kerkimet per kete banke neper shitoret ne qytet nuk treguan rezultat, andaje e vetmja zgjidhje ishte qe t’a krijoja nje vet dhe……(daullet ju lutem du du duum) …….kjo bukuroshe u lind.
U ispirova me nje foto te gjetur ne Pinterest dhe pastaj fillova kerkimet se si ta krijoi banken time “perfekte”.

Fillimisht vizitova zejtaret qe punojne me profile hekuri per te pare se cili profil i pershtatej dizajnit tim dhe pasi e gjeta profilin e duhur e vizatova modelin si dhe madhesit. Gjithashtu, i spjegova hollesisht zejtarit si do te duhej te realizohej projekti dhe si do te dukej i perfunduar.

Pasi baza nga metali u perfundua, e bleva nje cope materiali nga druri te madhesise se duhur, shpuzen e trashesise 10 cm, material lio per shtroje siper shpuzes, ndersa materialin per fytyren e bankes veqme e kisha, dhe me te gjitha keto u drejtova tek mjeshtri i kolltuqeve. Disa ore pas, une perfundova me kete banke shume atraktive dhe unike.

Tani keto banka punohen me porosi dhe poqese ju duket atraktive dhe deshironi ta keni nje te tille na shkruani ne qe ta beni porosine tuaj.

Flower Pot Makeover – Kate Spade Inspired Look


While shopping for groceries the other day in my nearby supermarket, I came across some white plastic flower pots which caught my eye, and I was lucky to be around at that very moment when a huge bulk of african violets in all possible colours just came in. I took 2 flower pots and picked a few plants in pink. As soon as I returned home from shopping, I threw all shopping bags at a side, and started DIY-ing the pots.

The material I used for this DIY project is electrical tape, and how i achieved the Kate Spade look, it is all visible in the collage below.

Build In Closet


Newly build condos these days are smaller in size and most of them do not provide for a plenty of storage space. Sometimes there is a case that spare rooms in such condos are too small and with an unusual shape that you could hardly find to buy a wardrobe or a closet that would comfortably fit in the room. In such cases the only option is custom made wardrobe which will satisfy the need of a condo owner.

In this post I am sharing a custom made build in closet for a client, who asked me helping her to design and furnish a spare room in her newly bought condo. The room was very long and narrow. On the on side of the wall there was a space about 40 cm deep and 2.50 cm in length which had to be addressed in some way, and since the owner needed some extra storage space we decided that this would be an ideal place to custom build a closet that would accommodate her extra bedding and seasonal wardrobe.

Since the client loves plants and has a large collection of african violets in all possible colours, I incorporated in this closet design a large number of shelves close to the window for her plant collection.

We used neutral colours for the walls, closet doors, drapes and the rug, and added a punch of colour with the turquoise futon sofa. The black small side table and the plants add some needed contrast.
Two identical large frames with flowers in their centre added charm and personality to the room.GGF
The overall look of the room turned fresh and modern, and considering the small footage of the room it feels even more spacious than it is.

I appeared on the Morning Show on RTK Live to discuss a topic related to walk in Closets.

Dollapet ne mur.

Shumica e banesave qe ndertohen kohet e fundit jane me te vogla ne siperfaqe, dhe shumica e tyre nuk ofrojne mundesi per hapsira te mjaftueshme ku do ti vendosnim dollapat. Ka raste kur dhomat ne keto ndertime te reja jane teper te vogla dhe me forma jo edhe aq te pershtatshme per mobilim, ashtu qe eshte veshtire per te gjete dollapa qe do ti pershtateshin madhesise dhe vendit ku do t’i vendosim ato. Ne raste te tilla e vetmja mundesi eshte qe keta dollapa ti bejme me porosi ne menyre qe t’i pershtaten dhomes dhe nevojave te pronarit.

Ne kete postim po e ndaje me ju nje dollap te bere me porosi per klienten e cila kerkoi ndihmen time per dizajnimin dhe mobilimin e nje dhome shtese ne banesen e saje te posablere.
Dhoma ishte shume e ngushte dhe e gjate. Njera ane e murit e kishte nje thyerje perbrenda me nje gjeresi 40 cm dh gjatesi 2.50 cm dhe te cilen zbrazetire duhet qe t’a adresonim ne ndonje menyre. Pasi qe klientes i nevojitej me shume hapsire me dollappa, atehere vendosem qe te porosisim nje dollap me keto dimenzione per t’i akomoduar veshjet sezonale si dhe qarqafet dhe gjesented tjera shtese.
Lulet ishin nje pasion i kesaje klienteje dhe kishte nje kolekcion te lule vjollcave afrikane te te gjitha ngjyrave te mundshme, andaje si pjese te dollapit i dizajnuam raftet afer dritares per kolekcionin e saje te luleve.

I perdorem ngjyrat neutrale per mure, dyer te dollapave, perde, dhe shtroje, ndersa i shtuam ngjyre ketij dizajni me nje kanape ngjyre turkuaz. Per artin mbi kanape, i vendosem dy korniza te medha masive me nga nje lule ne qender te tyre e qe jane krejtesisht identike me njera tjetren, por qe i japin dhomes nje sharm dhe personalitet.

Ne pergjithesi dhoma mori nje pamje te fresket dhe moderne, dhe duke pase parasysh se sa e vogel ishte dhoma, ajo tani duket shume me e madhe se qe ne te vertete eshte.

Per nevoja te dizajnit dhe dekorit te cfardo hapsire, mund te na kontaktoni me e mail ne ose permes mesazheve ne faqen ne Facebook ne BESA GM.
