The office part 1

Hi there! 

I am not going to comment on how long it's been since I last posted something because you have probably noticed that I am not very good at keeping things updated around here. At least I am quite good at updating my house so once again that is the reason why I am here with you today! 

Here are some before pictures of the room that we turned into an office/guest room(when needed):

Unfortunately, the room isn't 100% finished, but I will share a short video of how we made the desk (everything is from IKEA by the way). 
(Also, the video has no sound, so in case you start wondering 1. You are not deaf and 2. Your computer works just fine!) 

And the final result...

Stay tuned, because there is a lot more to this room!

Our Balcony Update

Hello there!

How exciting to be back on the blog! I have been living a busy and fun life which is why you haven't seen too much of me here, but that's only a good thing, at least for me! :) 

Probably many of you are wondering: Another home update?? Well, to answer your question...yes, this is another home update and it's not going to be the last one! This time we did some changes on our balcony which needed something extra now that the weather is getting hotter and hotter in Greece. This was a simple project that took about 2-3 hours to finish, but it really made a big difference! Unfortunately, the balcony is quite narrow so there weren't many things we could really do, but I think it looks better than before at least :)

So here are some before pictures!

 Some pictures of the process...
 Weird arm...
 We added another wood surface on top of the two tables to make it a bit longer and also more practical. It is removable so when it rains in winter I will take it inside so that the wood doesn't get damaged. 
 We also planted some herbs and the little Jamie Oliver in me is very happy now that I can cook with fresh herbs!
We got some mint as well for our mojito nights! 
 I love flowers so much! They add so much color and look so pretty :) I took these pictures a while back so some of these flowers are long gone, but lesson learned...don't water your plants too much! In Greece we say that when you love someone you drown them with your love...I guess I did that to my flowers, like literally! Oops :/
I still need to add something on that glass wall that shows my neighbors mop...any ideas?
 We like having lunch on the balcony at daytime, but what I love the most about the balcony is sitting outside at night! I got these lights from IKEA and they give such a fancy look at night! What else do you need really? Mojito nights have really become a thing lately! 

That's all for now folks! 
Enjoy your summer and maybe I will post something soon again or maybe not! 
Until then grazie e arrivederci!

New Home: Bedroom

Hello people! Here comes the last room of the house, the bedroom! Even though there are still things to do in this room, I thought to give you a peak of what it looks like at the moment. One of the things I want to add is some artwork on the walls and maybe change lazaros's office because it is about to fall apart. 

I must say that this is my favorite room in the house and I just love the big windows! My first plan was to paint it a really dark blue like in this picture, but then we went for something lighter and it looks really good too (at least in my opinion). Hope you like it! :)
 Look! We even have a sea view and some mountains! haha
One of the reasons I wanted to paint two of the walls dark blue was to make the furniture pop out!
 Lazaros's pirate flag that flutters when the radiator is on. He is really proud of his flag!
That's all for now! Thank you for being so patient with my home tour and I hope you have liked all the crazy colors and new changes we have made!

New home: Kitchen

Happy New Year everybody! I know this post comes a bit late, but I was too busy getting fat during the Christmas I tend to do every year during Christmas. My New Year's resolution is always about me getting fit, but I am never going to have a six pack so why torture myself? 

Either way, I am over explaining myself again so let's get back to business! This is the fourth part of our home tour with our kitchen, yey! To be honest when I first saw the kitchen I wasn't a big fan, but since we put the shelves in, it became more cozy and practical. If I could change one thing in the kitchen, it would be the color of the wooden cabinet (white would be more my thing) and the tiles on the wall...I guess that's two things I would change then! Enough of my mumbling though, I will let the pictures speak for themselves, enjoy! :) 

 Lazaros loves collecting spices! We will probably need to add more shelves at some point!
My mom made these shelves for us and I must say that they are super practical! Thank you mama!

That's all for now! I hope you like our "new" kitchen and see you next time!
