First blog love…

Banner_Template_2011

It’s been a while that I don’t write… Sorry…

You know juggling?  :)

Sometimes life gets busy and we have to shift priorities…

Today, I’d like to share with you the first blog I read that I fell in love with…

It’s called My Shabby Streamside Studio.

Everything she does is a dream…

See what I mean?

Her house was featured at the New York Times here.

This house seems like a fairy tale…

So pretty…

Sweater Pillow

DSC07713

I just had to have a sweater pillow for this “soon to be fall” season.  :)

While researching, I found this awesome idea.

Sweater vases on this link!

Eu tinha que fazer uma dessas almofadas de sweater para este outono tão próximo.  :)

Pesquisando, achei esta idéia incrível.

Vasos com sweater neste link!

Isn’t it cool?

Even though I still haven’t done these “vases”, I sure will with the scrap pieces from this sweater:

Não é legal?

Embora eu ainda não tenha feito estes vasinhos, vou fazê-los com certeza.

Yep…

I made the pillow!

First, I cut it, then, fold and hand stitched it.

E, sim!

Fiz a almofada!

Primeiro cortei, dobrei e costurei à mão.

I had to hand stitch because my line was not quite straight with the sewing machine… LOL!

Tive que costurar à mão porque minha linha de costura não ficou muito reta… hehe

See the problem?

After all this hand stitching, I went back to my sewing machine…

Viu o problema?

Bem, depois de muita costura à mão, aí sim, fui para máquina de costura…

Of course, only leaving room for the filling…

Eventually, I got to this result:

Claro que deixei um espacinho para o enchimento…

Eventualmente, cheguei a este resultado:


Soooo cuddly!  :)

Tão fofinho!  :)

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.  :)

 That’s a cool sink. Not sure how practical it is though…

Love those lights… Maybe they could done with wood buckets…

I love the classic lines too…

So beautiful… and so simple…

Ahhhh…

Esta é uma pia muito interessante. Tenho dúvidas quanto à praticidade…

Amei as luminárias… Talvez, possam ser feitas com baldes de madeira…

Amo este toque clássico, também…

Tão linda… e tão simples…

Ahhhh…

É de sonho, né?  :)

Tenha um dia maravilhoso!

Decorating an all-white bathroom

white_orchids_pot_plants[1]

As I’ve been working on our master bathroom, I thought about sharing some white ideas.  :)

Like those:

All of those white bathrooms have tons of layers and textures… which is reaaaally important when doing an all-white bathroom because it prevents from being the “cold hospital bathroom”. Notice the wall details, the exposed wall, the molding, the tile… carrara marble, a nice repurposed vanity, fluffy towels…

Plua a ton of accesories to bring more layers too.  :)

Without forgetting a beautiful chandelier…

And flowers!  :)

Como estou trabalhando em nosso banheiro da suíte-master, pensei em compartilhar algumas idéias “brancas”.  :)

Todos estes banheiros brancos tem um monte de camadas e texturas… o que é muuuuito importante quando decorando um banheiro completamente branco porque senão fica com cara de “banheiro de hospital”. Note os detalhes nas paredes, a parede exposta, as molduras, a cerâmica… mármore carrara, um móvel lindo que virou pia, toalhas fofinhas…

Mais um monte de acessórios para adicionar mais camadas.  :)

Sem esquecer de um lustre magnífico…

E flores!  :)

Front door Inspiration

CASA 013

Hey, everybody!

I was contemplating some ideas for our front door…

I like this idea from Pottery Barn.

In fact, I can see it working well here with our house… White deck, walnut stained door, dark planters…   :)

Or… maybe rich mahogany like this one from HGTV.

Or… maybe a modern looking door like this Brazilian one:

It’s definitely modern but it reminds me of barn doors… reclaimed wood… Which is really in… I think this is gorgeus.  :)



Like this doors at this picture here:

Let’s see where this is going…  :)

  Oi, pessoal! 

Estava contemplando algumas idéias para nossa porta de entrada…

Gosto da idéia da Pottery Barn.

Na verdade, consigo visualizar isso funcionando bem aqui na nossa casa… O deck branco, porta com stain num tom escuro, vasos escuros…   :)

Ou… talvez, num tom mais avermelhado, como esta do HGTV.

Ou… ainda, uma porta brasileira bem moderna como esta:

É definitivamente moderna, mas me lembra aquelas portas de fazenda… madeira de demolição… Que está super na moda, de uns tempos pra cá…  Acho bem chique.  :)

Tipo a porta desta foto:

Bem, vamos ver onde isso tudo vai dar…  :)
