A Creative Handmade Home from Poland
This beautiful image is right up my street! It actually introduced me to the wonderful blog Colores de Mi Alma, the blogger behind the fabulous DIY projects you are about to see is Izabella Perez Harriette. Not a very Polish name, unfortunately I can’t find out much information about Izabella but there are plenty of lovely DIY projects and lovely images and inspiration from this creative handmade home!
I am always inspired by furniture makeovers, as I’m far too lazy to do something like myself! Izabella’s painted chest of drawers from Ikea are absolutely wonderful and Izabella is great at keeping her colours consistent throughout her home and in her DIY projects. A bit like myself I guess ^_^
Izabella used a selection of different patterned fabrics in red to cover the front of her Ikea Moppe drawers. You can see my own Ikea Moppe drawer makeover here, in my craft room tour post.
Izabella was pretty smart with this idea; only covering the front of the drawers. I painted all the drawers, inside and out and the frame that contains the drawers. It took forever to dry!
This, is an incredibly simple DIY project – add washi tape to the edge of open shelves to add a little bit of colour. It has just struck me, that this home is rather patriotic isn’t it! Well, with the inclusion of blue of course!
I remember watching a cooking show with Sophie Dahl, in her home she had a red espresso maker and I’ve longed for one since. Well, that was before I realised that my favourite colour palette was pink, blue, yellow and white. So any of those colours in an espresso maker would be preferrable! Actually, I’ve just purchased the most wonderful cafetière after I saw it on a post on coco rose diaries blog, I will post a picture when it arrives! It’s divine!
I know this isn’t a diy project, but I do love the colours and the paisley print napkins!
This party was really for me (it wasn’t) but the colours are my favourite… as I’m sure you have realised by now even if you hadn’t already read it!
More pink! How wonderful! I love the colours in the sweets and the colours of the washi tape.
Aren’t these gingham hearts rather lovely? I love the colour of the hyacinths, they remind me of parma violet sweets.
