One of my secret addiction is magazines. And since I have tons of magazines at home and soon running out place to stash them, I always try to come up new ways to store them! Here is a magazine holder that I made ​​of metal wire but you can also use some other strong string or rope to do it. This magazine holder does not actually take a lot of time and it's very unexpensive! Goood luck!

INTERIOR _________faye toogood










The most difficult question that I get sometimes is what is trendy right now or not. Sure we are all inspired by others but I belive that true creativity begins in the heart and from a freedom of thought where everything is allowed. Therefore, there is no right and wrong when it comes to art and furnishings. Like Faye Toogood the incredibly talented British interior designer who creates interior design with courage and curiosity. All of her pieces are handmade by small-scale fabricators and traditional artisans, with an honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material. Her interior design shows the way away from trend slavery and current trends. What she creates is freedom from all that is allowed or not!

DIY ________ tube lamp





 I could not resist the temptation to make a lamp out of one of my empty cardboard rolls that I have saved when I bought poster. According to me you can not have too many light sources at home in the winter and the light I used was only two watt low energy lamp that gives a dull and cozy light. 

You need
.a cardboard roll
.scissors
.black tape
.low 2 watt bulb
.lamp cord

Start to thread the lamp cord through the tube and when you are satisfied with how much you want it to show out of the tube fasten it with the tape. I let the lamp stay inside the tube because I used 2 watt low energy lamp which does not get hot, never use lamps that are stronger than two watt for this. But if you want to be sure about it all and just to be on the safe side, let the lamp stick out of the tube. And last I made a hole on the tube and hang it on to the wall. Done!

My favorit parfyme Byredo parfyms has the most good looking boxes for their products. It is impressive when not only the product is awesome, but the packaging is awesome too! Their boxes are perfect also for storing small items etc.
