The definition of Lucite is a material used for an acrylic resin or plastic consisting essentially of polymerized methyl methacrylate. That said, Lucite was once associated and well known with the decor the Hollywood Regency Era. Yet the timeless style of Lucite continues today. How stylish and diverse the Lucite offerings are today! Here is a collection of what inspired me the most today for currently crushing post.

I think a lot of us may shy away from grey, associating it with being dull, however, it is a colour that is far from dull if the correct tones and accents are chosen correctly as can be seen in the collages I have put together below. What is important is the “tone” of grey we choose for our interiors. The lightest tone of grey on walls still allows a feeling of spaciousness and can brighten a dark room, dark grey on a wall, however, may become oppressive. If dark grey is used on one wall alone, for example behind a bed, it can evoke a wonderful feeling of drama and romance. More grey inspiration in yesterday’s post.

After a very busy week (which was meant to be lazy week) organising around the house I am looking forward to beautiful long weekend with my hubby. I need a quiet, relaxed, and balanced weekend with lots of tea, coziness at home with a warm blanket and neutral hues to zoom out the fast-paced week and dive into a calm and laid-back weekend. Isn’t that sheer happiness? To visualize my feeling, I prepared this little inspiration for you to enjoy. Not long now till some happy mummy days to enjoy with my new arrival, so for now it is us time. Have a happy weekend, friends!
My first day of maternity leave I couldn’t be more thrilled as I’m very tired lately and any spare moment of laziness sounds blissful to me. Normally I’m always up to something, so this state of tiredness caused by the pregnancy falls hard on me – both mentally and physically. I’m having troubles accepting the fact that if I’m unable to run errands as I did before – it’s ok (and I should stop blaming myself for wanting to rest as much as possible). It’s a problem deep in my mind, so I have to work on that. I’m starting today, with this post of a lazy week ahead of doing nothing – just sleeping, going for long walks and eating yummy meals. Hope you have a good week!
Thank God it is friday! Another week is (almost) behind us, another weekend is awaiting to be enjoyed! Don’t you love Fridays?
This week has been a busy last week at work before I take my maternity leave. My last day at the office was a good one. My work colleagues spoilt me with a lovely morning tea, some presents and lots of thanks and hugs. A heart warming day… And being reminded I need to come back at some stage. The next chapter has begun… Life keeps the clocks ticking over, and we need to remember to enjoy the journey… Not just look forward to the destination.
Before signing off I wanted to give you a photo update on my pregnancy. Another reason is that I’m thinking to become a bit more personal with this blog, meaning that I might be sharing more bits of my life with all of you (there will be plenty of fun moments when the baby arrives and I want to share those joyful moments with you – my virtual family). Tomorrow is my baby shower, so make sure you look out for that post soon!
