Congrats Cara! Send me your address and your pillow will arrive in the mail shortly!

Katie Lynn said...

P.S. I tweeted about the giveaway via @tiersofjoyblog. Thanks for the chance to win something so lovely Ashlina -- You're the best!

SIX TO BLISS: the Mariska Meijers edition + giveaway

Who: Mariska Meijers
Where: Amsterdam (so fun)
What: a devistatingly chic artist and blogger of IUTBSWBID 

here are her SIX TO BLISS...
They bring inspiration and food for thought and make me travel and explore between my own four walls.

Bold mixes
I am rather fearless when it comes to combining styles, patterns and colours. I play around with my interior all the time, blending my own designs with names from Eames to Ikea. 

Although I just moved into a new studio which is a 10 minute bicycle ride from my house I will always have art materials at hand. Inspiration and the urge to create can come at unexpected times!

My kids
Annemarth (14) and Mauk (12). Without them there would not be a home.

The home office
The most important corner of the house. My “office” is actually in the kitchen/diningroom/livingroom. An open plan space with my Mac perched on the corner of the dining table. My kids often join with their laptops and for breakfast, dinner etc we just clear the table. 

Nick nacks
Heirlooms, fleamarket finds, pictures. I am just not that into minimalism. Everything in my house has a (his)story. I am a globetrotter and my home with all its contents is a reflection of that..

Isn't she fabulous?
Not only has she become my friend and idol...she was my very first sponsor.
We have been dying to do a giveaway for you guys and thought that now,
with the launch of her new pillow line, 
we would do a  giveaway! 

We will be giving away a new pillow from her fab pillow line, and 2 sets of gorgeous note cards!

You know the drill...
1. become a follower (if not already)
2. visit Mariska's store + let us know your favorite pillow
3. for extra entries tweet, facebook or post (and add an extra comment for each extra entry with link)

Good luck!!!!!

Blogger style {decorating with a Zebra rug}

We are just moments away from choosing the winner of my Zebra rug giveaway.
(there is still time to if you haven't yet go here now!)
I am more than thrilled.
So today I wanted to share with you one of my most favorite blogging decoristas, Louise +
 how she used the same zebra rug in her stylin' home.
It's neighbored by a gorgeous glossy black dresser and 2 hot pink moroccan poofs.
And to top it off, it's in a cute little girls room.

Decorista Home Tour: zebra rug + my bedroom

I am just dying to know the winner of the Zebra Rug giveaway...only 2 more days to enter!
Thank you so much to all who entered. I really enjoyed hearing all of the fabulous places and the cool ways you would use  the zebra rug.
Now I want to share with you a wee bit more of my bedroom and where I put my amazing zebra rug from RugsUSA.
I am so obsessed with it that I put it right in between my bed and my closet
 (which is basically a mirrored wall of closet doors)
So when I wake up in the morning, its the first thing I put my feet on and I love that because hardwood floors can get a bit cold in the AM. I want my feet to feel snuggly.
It's a really good size and takes up lots of floor space, which I love and add a big pop of fun pattern to my!
and now here are a few more shots of my room...
You can see the amazing light from the window above my bed coming through (love that in the AM).
The cute print in the top right corner I won from a giveaway on shari's blog.
 It adds such a cute + sweet girlie traditionalist touch.
My headboard + two side tables I found in my neighborhood (free stuff is cool). 
I painted the side tables a light tiffany blue and I just adore them.
The little pink vintage bug is a gift from my favorite thift store HEDGE in palm springs. 
The beautiful starburst mirror above my bed is from Melrose Trading Post here in LA.
(my boyfriend bargained it from 35$ to 8$...he is the BEST at getting a deal)
and now its my favorite piece in my room.
More pics of my room to come soon...(just finishing up a few surprises for you)
