Anthropologie Inspired DIY Home Decoration

Dok sam sinoć pretraživala net, naišla sam na zanimljivu ideju. Pošto sam imala sam potreban materijal i malo vremena, odlučila sam da pokušam. Mada nisam nimalo talentovana za matematiku i geometriju, učinilo mi se da nije komplikovano. Sklapanje geometrijskih oblika ipak ne može biti toliko teško,čak ni za mene...
Ideja je stvarno simpatična, a inspirisana je jednim od veoma popularnih proizvoda radnje Anthropologie. 
(http://www.anthropologie.eu/anthro/index.jsp
Ova online prodavnica je prepuna zanimljivih i lepih stvari, ali cene umeju da budu vrlo visoke.
Inspiracija za ovaj DIY su prekrasne geometrijske viseće lampe.

Last night, while I was browsing some home decor ideas, I came across something interesting. As I had all the materials at home, and a little spare time, I decided to give it a try. 
Although I have no talent for mathematics and geometry, it seemed it's not that complicated. Assembling geometric shapes can`t be that hard, even for me ... 
This idea is inspired by 
Anthropologie, and we all know they have so many beautiful things, but prices are often too high . 
Inspiration for this DIY are this beautiful geometric pendant lamps.
Želela sam neki detalj za klub sto koji geometrijskim oblikom podseća na ove prelepe lampe. 

I wanted something similar, geometrical shaped decorative item for the coffee table. 
 Za ovaj DIY, potrebno vam je sledeće:
  1. slamke 
  2. konac i igla
  3. makaze
  4. sprej u željenoj boji
  5. lak u spreju
For this DIY, you will need:
  1. straws 
  2. thread and needle
  3. scissors
  4. spray paint
  5. spray varnish
Tutorijal:
Tutorial:
Iseći slamke na željenu dužinu (potrebne su dve dužine, duži komad je polovina slamke a kraći je četvrtina). Iglom i koncem, provlačenjem kroz slamke povezati slamke...
Cut the straws into desired length(requires two lengths, mine was a half of straw and a quarter of straw). Swipe the needle and threat through straws and connect them.
Formirati trougao. Gotov trougao zavezati na jednom kraju.
Make a triangle.Tie the knot on one end. 
Na isti način načititi još dva trougla, nastavljajući na prvi i svaki završeni deo čvrsto vezati...
Make another two triangles,connecting it with the first one, and tie every one...
... potom dodati još jedan kraći deo i formirati piramidu.
... at last, add one shorter piece of straw and make a pyramid.
Na dno piramide dodati još dva trougla (ja sam dodala trouglove različite veličine da bih dobila zanimljiviji oblik)...
On the bottom of the pyramid add another two triangles (I decided to make it different size, because I thought it will make interesting shape)...
... i sve zajedno čvrsto vezati.
... and tie it firmly all together.
Praznine na spojevima sam popunila ravnim komadom slamke, a iznad njega dodala i komad zglobnog dela slamke. 
Naposletku sve sam isprskala sprejem u zlatnoj boji i bezbojnim lakom...
I filled the gaps with a pieces of straw, as you can see on the picture. 
When it was all finished, I spray painted it with gold paint and clear varnish ...
...i dobila ovaj dekorativni komad inspirisan Anthropologie lampama.
...and got an Anthropologie inpired DIY decoration.
Za ovo mi je trebalo oko sat vremena... Kratko i slatko, zar ne?
I needed just an hour for this. Quick and cute project, don`t you think?

Happy Birthday Home Chic Club! Treci blogorodjendan i darivanje!!


Danas nam je divan dan, divan dan, divan dan, mome blogu rođendan, rođendan, rođendan!
I to veliki, treći!!

Odmah da vam kažem, ovo nije post u kome ću se osvrtati na to koliko ljudi prati ili čita moj blog, koliko postova sam objavila i koji je bio najuspešniji, koliko pregleda sam imala i sl.  

Ovo je post u kome se osvrćen na sopstveno stanje duha, u kome preispitujem i otkrivam pravi motiv zbog sam još uvek ovde.  

Jer, ko bi rekao onog 12.o5.2012.godine da će ovaj blog slaviti i treći rođendan..? Ja verovatno ne, jer sve je počelo onako usput, skoro slučajno, da se zabeleži renoviranje kuhinje i da se ne zaboravi sav taj neočekivani i ničim izazvani haos u kući. Trebalo je samo da okrečimo kuhinju, a onda se sve nekako otelo kontroli i dovelo do toga da ja sada sedim i pišem o tome i tri godine kasnije. 

Ono što je usledilo nakon nekoliko prvih postova uspelo je da me zadrži ovde na blogu do danas. A za to ste zaslužne vi, moje drage blogerke, jer ste me pronašle u šumi internet koještarija, pružile mi podršku i otvorile vrata jednog potpuno novog sveta. 

U tom svetu žive moje srodne duše, kreativne, fenomenalne žene i sjajne prijateljice zbog kojih i postoji ovaj blog. Vi ste "krive" što nisam odustala od pisanja u "prazno", iako je to ponekad prilično zastrašujuće, jer nikad ne znaš da li će to neko uopšte pročitati, a ako i pročita da li će odmahnuti glavom, reći: "gluposti" i kliknuti na onu putaču u gornjem desnom uglu. Zato želim da zabeležim da, koliko god ja uživala u dizajnu, enterijerima, dobrim idejama i uradi sam projektima, to sve ipak ne bi bilo dovoljno da blog opstane da sam ovde bila sama, da nije bilo vas da to pratite, komentarišete, hvalite ili dopunjavate svojim idejama.

I kao što je uobičajeno i ja imam rođendansku želju dok duvam svećice... Nije to nešto baš toliko veliko i neostvarivo... Možda nekome nije ni naročito značajno... Meni jeste... Ja želim da se jednom negde skupimo i ludo provedemo, onako kako to samo žene umeju. I postanemo, što bi ono rekli, BFF. 
Hvala vam na ove tri godine divnog druženja, podrške i prijateljstva. 
Živele i hvala vam!! 

Today is a great day, a wonderful day on my blog. We have a birthday! 
A big, third one!! First, I want to tell you right away, this is not a post about how many people are following or reading my blog, how many posts I published and how much it was successful etc. 

This is a post in which I want to reveal the true motive for I`m still here. Who would think this blog will be celebrating third birthday..? 
Certainly not me, because it all started almost accidentally. I wanted just to save the memory of the kitchen renovation, because I wanted to remember all that unexpected and totally, not planed, chaos in the house. We just wanted to paint the kitchen, and then everything kind of got out of control and led to complete makeover and to this moment here and now, when I`m writing about it three years later. Things that happen after the first few posts managed to keep me here on the blog up to date. And that is all because of you, my dear blogger friends. You found me in the huge world of internet, provide me with so much needed support and opened the door to an entirely new world. In that world lives my soul mates, creative, fabulous women and great friends, and that is why I am still here on this blog. 

It`s your "fault" that I haven`t given up on writing in the blank space of internet, although it's sometimes pretty scary, because you never know whether someone ever read it, and even if they do, whether they will just shake they heads and say: "nonsense" and click on the button at the top right corner. So, I want to say this! As much as I enjoyed the design, interiors, good ideas and DIY projects, all this still would not be enough to keep this blog alive if I was alone over here. All that will be nothing without you who always find the time to follow, comment and give me such a great ideas.
Thank you!!!

P.S. This giveaway is only for readers from the area of ​​ex Yugoslavia. So sorry girls, is too complicated to send the prize worldwide. Hope you don`t mind!

P.S. Da ne zaboravim na nagradicu... Obzirom da je leto već skoro tu, za vas sam pronašla nešto u čemu ćete moći da uživate u dugim letnjim danima, uz kafu i knjigu. Nema nikakvih uslova za dobijanje nagrade, samo ostavite komentar na ovaj post i to je sve. Nagradu ću, nakon što izvučem najsrećniju od vas da pošaljem na vašu kućnu adresu. 
A nagrada je: Viseća ležaljka za baštu ili balkon!!! Nadam se da će dobitnica zaista uživati i da će joj to biti omiljeni letnji kutak! :D

 xoxo

Glitz, Glamour and Gorgeous - Hollywood style

Yes, I have a little crush! The over-the-top Hollywood style is caught my eye lately and I must admit, I can`t stop thinking about it!!
Great thing is, it is not just for the rich and famous; a modern version is surging in popularity, fueled by many designers and bloggers. Not everyone can afford original, expensive pieces, but elements of Hollywood Regency style are within reach for even the most budget-minded home decorator. 
Going Hollywood Regency is all about the details like wonderful fabrics, velvet drapes, silk lampshades, chandeliers with crystals, sculpted carpets. 
It`s meant to be an eclectic mix of styles. Use classic furniture that never goes out of style, add glamorous details and there you have it. 

U zadnje vreme mi je zapao za oko stari-novi Holivud stil i moram da priznam da mi se stalno vrzma po glavi.
Sjajna stvar kod tog stila je što, iako tako deluje, on nije dostupan samo slavnima i bogatima; moderna verzija sve više dobija na popularnosti, kako od dizajnera tako i od blogera mladje generacije. 
Jasno je da ne mogu svi da kupuju skupe i originalne komade nameštaja sa potpisom čuvenih dizajnera, ali elementi ovog stila su dostupni čak i onima koji uvek paze na svoj budžet.
Realizacija ovog stila je moguća i ostvariva jer se bazira na detaljima, kao što su plišani draperi, svileni abažuri, kristalni lusteri, kvalitetni tepisi. Eklektika je ključna reč u ovom miksu. Upotrebom klasičnih komada nameštaja, koji nikada ne izlaze iz mode i dodavanjem glamuroznih detalja postiže se pravi efekat.
And it`s back big time because it looks luxurious and glamorous, you can create an individual look because it allows you to mix and create your own living space. This style is perfect for a home decoration and a home obsessed bloggers (like me :D), because it give you the opportunity to be able to mix vintage, borderline-tacky pieces, add some glitz and glam and have them live in harmony.
And I think is`s great for me cause it can be a real reflection of my personality, because it allows both details and color, but still appears like purified and clear style. 
So, I`m on to it! I have to find perfect details, like

Upravo zato se i vraća u velikom stilu jer deluje luksuzno i glamurozno, dozvoljava eklektiku i omogućava da se u prostoru ostavi lični pečat. I zato je savršen za one koji žele da dizajniraju sopstveni prostor i one koji su opsednuti svojim prostorom (kao ja npr. :D) jer pruža mogućnost da starinski vintidž i novi glamurozni komadi žive u savršenoj harmoniji.
Eto, zato mi se dopao ovaj stil, jer pruža mogućnost da se izrazimo u svom prostoru, dozvoljava živahne detalje, boje i malo glamura, a ipak ostaje pročišćen i sveden.
Na kraju mi ostaje samo da pronađem savršene detalje, kao što je 
klub sto u kombinaciji mesinga i stakla...
this brass coffee table...
gold sconces or lamps...
odgovarajuće zidne lampe ili svećnjake...

 beautiful art work or mirror...
savršene umetnine ili ogledala...
perhaps brass or gold shelving unit...
možda upečatljivu biblioteku...

perfect rug...
dobar tepih...
lovely details... ljupke detalje...

and more...
i svašta još ponešto...


OMG, what is wrong with me...!? Am I going completely mead!? I need a coffee and a good night sleep, it will pass...
What do you think ladies?
Oh, I almost forgot... Today I found the perfect little thing... Her name is Magnolia, and she is a jewelry holder.
It's a start, don`t you think? 

Sad kad sam ovo pročitala, vidim da nešto nije u redu samnom...
Nema veze, sve je to zbog umora i hronične neispavanosti, proći će...  
Šta mislite dame?
O, da, zamalo da zaboravim. Našla sam savršen detalj u knjižari Delfi. Zove se Magnolija, ona je držač za nakit.

Sugar Easter Eggs


 Easter week was filled with lots of work, traveling and constant running. 
That`s why I couldn`t keep my promise I made in my  last post and show you earlier my new project - Sugar Easter eggs.

Uskršnja nedelja mi je bila ispunjena obavezama, putovanjem i neprekidnim trčkaranjem tamo amo.
Zato nisam stigla da ispunim obećanje iz prethodnog posta i pokažem vam ranije moj novi projekat - Šećerna Uskršnja jaja.


Eggs are made ​of sugar mixed with little water and food color and decorated with royal icing.
This technique has been long known, but it was new to me and very interesting.
Great thing is that eggs are empty, so you can put candy or note inside.

Jaja sam napravila od mešavine šećera, malo vode i boje za kolače i ukrasila rojal masom.
Ova tehnika je već dugo poznata, ali je za mene bila nova i vrlo zanimljiva.
Super je što su jaja šuplja, tako da unutra mogu da se stave bombonice ili poruka. 
Remaining sugar I used to made lovely sugar cubes!

Ostatak šećera sam iskoristila da napravim zanimljiv i neobičan šećer u kockama.


Have a beautiful start of weekend!

Želim vam divan početak ovog prazničnog vikenda!
