Anyone that has read my blog from the very beginning might remember that until I had a custom header designed, the banner at the top of my blog was just daisies. I would rotate them whenever I found one I liked even better.
This Monday I went out for my one and only run this week (eeeeek, I am seriously falling down on the work-outs, renovations totally disrupt your normal routine) I noticed there were wild daisies everywhere, so I picked some.
This is the only vase I could find, since my kitchen is still without countertops, most of them are still in boxes.
See the faux fur throw on my white barcelona chair? I think fur (fake of course) and leather just go together (well technically they are together at first). Everytime someone comes over and walks into my living room, they always run their hand over the throw.
You can see I finally hung the mirror over my sideboard, I have yet to figure out what I want to put on it. So far, I’m liking the clean look of my living room.
Daisies are so simple and happy, I just love them!

Here you can see my yellow hallway and how it relates to my sunflower yellow sofa and chairs. Love!
By the way, here’s what you should know about my living room colour. It mostly looks like sand on the walls (I used it in the family/kitchen/living/dining room) but in some lights of the day (especially in the kitchen) it looks slightly pink on some walls (because it officially has a pink undertone, not green) but that does not bother me. If the colour started out a screaming pink beige, that would be a HUGE problem, but to get a barely there, sandy look without going to green, some pink is required.
And just before you think this is a great solution for your dark basement? It’s not. In a dark room it will just look dingy and sad.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! xo Maria
