I have a lot of pillows in my room, but I don't like that they are not all the same colour. New pillow cases are rather expensive, so I decided I will make them. Winter is here, so I wanted to dress my pillows into some warm, soft, wintery cases. I found some old sweaters and buttons and then this happened... Simple and free knit pillow.

I become obsessed with candles. I prefer the ones with a nice smell, but I also like the ordinary ones - as long it is a candle it is ok. I think that the candlelight makes your apartment really homey and warm, which is specially welcome during the winter. If I would have the fireplace, maybe I wouldn't be so obsessed with candles, but until then...
The holidays are literally around the corner so I wanted to decorate my apartment with winter inspired candles. A while ago I've bought the cheapest and the most ordinary ones, but I had to create some nice glass candle holders to hide them inside and make them look prettier. I was inspired by 'Winter wonderland' Christmas decor, which you can find in my last post HERE.
So I took the candles, some old drinking glasses, white sand, glue and a gift ribbon and then this happened...

|The Colosseum and The Roman Forum|
It was a cold night in the middle of December. 10 days before Christmas, to be exact. With my pillow and a suitcase in one hand and a bag full of food in the other, I came on the bus and make myself comfortable. Is even possible to be comfortable on the bus?! We were about to drive all night so I was overjoyed when I realized that I have two seats just for myself. I fell asleep and when I woke up in the morning we were already in the middle of Italy and this was the beginning of our pre-Christmas architecture field trip.
First stop was a large archaeological complex of over 30 buildings called Hadrian's Villa, named after the Roman Emperor Hadrian. This place was his escape out of Rome. It was his "holiday" destination with palaces, theatre, state rooms, libraries, several thermae, temples, green areas and spaces for slaves and other staff. Very modest, isn't it?

Hello and welcome on my blog!
I decided to add a blog to my page, where I will be posting my architecture, design and other projects, ideas, thoughts and inspirations. I will share photos from my trips and tips how to do something by yourself - also known as DIY projects. :)
Also have in mind that English is not my native language, so I apologize in advance for any mistakes. You are more than welcome to correct me!
More is coming soon, so keep in touch!
