I am so embracing prints right now! Everywhere I look, I see amazing patterns and colors. I couldn't take it anymore and simply had to spruce up my pad a bit. The trouble with this delicious idea of mine was that my budget was, umm, non-existent. Remember that year off I told you about? Well, I decided to throw (a bit of) caution to the wind and see what I could whip up mixing a few new items in with the old, i.e. sofa, artwork, rugs. We've been living in this apartment for more than a year now and, in all honesty, I haven't really been inspired to make any least not until I ran across young house love, the designer's attic, bazaar of serendipity, and making it lovely. Each of these bloggers profiled vibrant colors, delightful patterns, and fresh designs with an energy that gave my creativity a kick. This is my little design cocktail I mixed up using old artwork, a pair of Linum pillowcases, a freebe chair from an old cinema in Würzburg (still needs a makeover), some flea market finds, a sprinkle of Ikea, and a lotta love. Wanna see the before??

Thanks to the eye candy featured in the blogs mentioned above, this is my after:
