All is Bright - Christmas Home Tour - Part 2
Hello sweet friends and welcome to part 2 of our home tour. If you missed the part 1 you can find it here.
I hope you had a beautiful weekend. If you are new here, a warm welcome to you. This little space of mine is where I share my love for creating, art and design. Today I`m sharing my kitchen and dining room. So please…come on in.
We haven’t had too much snow around here as yet. That’s changed today with the first snow of the season. A little, but it`s still the snow. I’m hopeful we’ll have more for Christmas.
As you can see I haven`t overly decorated the kitchen, because we love to cook and bake on a daily bases, so I just added some holiday mugs and dishes and a cloche full of ornaments. Of course, we have some cookies, galettes and a Christmas chocolate pretzel wreaths (delicious and so easy to make). 
On the shelves I added a cute little red car with a Christmas tree and a fresh greenery. Also I put a fresh swag on my hood. Love the smell of fresh evergreens in the kitchen.
On the other side I have a cute little vignette with houses and bottle brush trees.
Now onto our first Christmas tree which I put in a champagne bucket this year. Behind is my DIY cotton pom pom garland (you can find more here), white ornament garland and cute stockings with gifts. Underneath the tree is a few more gifts.
This year I decided to use red and teal blue on the tree with white, of course. 
This flocked tree is adorned with little houses, bells, hearts, berries...
birds, stars and pine cones.
On the left is my vintage secretary which I use to store my little collection of blue china. On top of it, I places more fresh greenery and a vase full of ornaments.
Now on to my second Christmas tree. Really small and cute tree in a wicker basket. 
Next to the tree is a little snowy cottage with some bottle brush trees on a cake stand.
That lead us right to our dining room. 
Real treat and a centerpiece for our table this year is this lovely gingerbread village I make the other day. I made five smaller and one bigger house, few Christmas trees and put them on a cake stand. Underneath the gingerbread houses is galettes as a base for my village. I dust everything with a powder sugar for snowy effect. 
On the table I used two table runners, silver chargers and my favorite white and gold plates, white bowls, vintage silver cutlery and candlesticks. 
On the mirror is my DIY fresh wreath (I will share tutorial on Thursday). Chandelier also has some new crystals and a few glass ornaments.
Small wreaths on the chairs makes us and our guests feel very special. 
I really enjoy looking at twinkling lights on our Christmas tree in the mirror while eating dinner. So festive!

So there you have it…our little home, all dressed up for Christmas. I hope you enjoyed our tour and you were able to find some inspiration. And please remember, what’s most important about your holidays is not the beautiful home, but the memories you are making with your family and friends.
From my family to yours, I’d like to wish you a very Marry Christmas and a very Happy Holidays!

Typically around Christmas time, my home explodes with decorations in just about every room because it truly is one of my favorite seasons of the year. I absolutely love setting up multiple trees around the home, hanging twinkling lights and creating Christmas vignettes. 
As I said, Christmas time is truly my favorite time of the year. So, welcome to my Christmas home tour. This time I`ll share with you my entry and living room and next time my kitchen and dining room. 
Having to set three Christmas trees and all the other decorations during one of the busiest times of the year was a crazy idea, but it had to get done. So I knew that in order to make this happen, I would need to work like crazy. And that’s exactly what I did. 💃
We got our Christmas decorations up a couple weeks ago but I find I always take a while to move things around and play until I’m happy (which is never, btw...).
Let`s get started with my entry! This is what you see from the living room. I draped this beautiful DIY live garland over my door with some frosted pine cones. It makes our view so much better and the scent of the fresh garland makes me so happy every time I come through the door.
Right as you walk in the front door you see our narrow but bright entry where I set a black iron shelf. Copper has been my color of choice this season for this part of our home, and I knew it would be the perfect addition to our entry. On the first shelf I added a NOEL sign, clock, glass ornaments, fresh greenery and a battery operated glass cloche. 
On the second one I put this adorable snowman in a picture frame, my DIY arrow home sign, added candles and some more ornaments in a deer bowl and I was happy!
On the bottom shelf I add a deer pillow, faux present and my white scarf with tassels and finished it with some lovely frosted pine cones and miniature skies.
On the left side of the shelf you can see my giant DIY paper bag snowflakes (tutorial on this will be on the blog very soon), so cute and easy to make.
On the other side of the entry I put a mirror with a wreath and a shabby clock.
Now it`s time to move on! Let`s go to our living room. I love white and neutrals so it`s the main color palette in this room. As you can see, in this space, just a few little pops of bold reds bring it all together with the rest of our home.
Few cardinals, red berries and a vintage postcards was just enough to make my tree more alive and joyful.
Of course, there is my Mr. B guitar and sheet music for our cozy nights at home.
If you missed my DIY bling Christmas pillows, you can find the tutorial here.
On the DIY coffee table (you can find the tutorial here) I placed a silver deer with a charm around his neck, more greenery with red berries, star bowl with ornaments, little bell and a antler candlestick. 
On the mantel I tried to keep it simple and added only a garland, white ornaments, gray and white satin  ribbons, candles and my angel bell.
Here`s the view of the living room from the hallway.
Here`s the other side of the room with my big vintage Italian armoire, side table with a lanterns and candles.
Another view to the our entry.
Holiday can`t be completed without a presents, so I wrapped just a few for now. There`s so much shopping to do yet.
I wanted a white faux fur tree skirt, but couldn`t find it, so I chose light gray, and I like it.
And that`s it for the part I of the tour. In a few days, in a part II I`ll share our kitchen and dining room. 
At Home - Fall Home Tour 2016 - Part 2
Hello lovely people! For those of you who are new to my blog, welcome to the 2016 Fall Tour - Part 2. If you missed Part 1, you can find it here.Today is the part of my home where everything is happening in our family, but also the place where I invite others into our home to enjoy. It can be as simple as a coffee or a drink, or nice diner in the evening. Those of you that know me know that I love fresh flowers in the house. My favorite flowers are roses and peonies, they look so beautiful in a simple white pitcher or glass vase. Another thing a love is a freshly baked bread. We make bread every day with whole wheat flour and rye flour with lots of seeds, like sesame, sunflower seeds, flax, cumin and chia seeds. Recipe is very simple and it`s baked in about an our or so. Flavour of this bread is just amazing and it`s very healthy. Since I eat this bread, instead ordinary bread from grocery, my stomach doesn`t hurt any more. Pair it with some homemade plum jam and mint tea and you have a perfect start of the day! 

Zdravo dragi ljudi! Za one koji su prvi put na mom blogu, dobro došli u jesenju turu mog doma - drugi deo. Ako niste videli prvi deo, možete da ga pogledate ovde. Danas je na redu deo našeg doma u kome se sve dešava u našoj porodici, ali i mesto gde pozivamo drage ljude na zajedničko uživanje. To može da bude samo kafa ili piće, ili neka lepa večera. Onima koji me znaju poznato je da obožavam sveže cveće u domu. Moje omiljeno cveće su ruže i božuri, prekrasno ukras doma smešten u jednostavan beli bokla ili staklenu vazu. Druga stvar koju volim je sveže ispečen hleb. Mi pravimo hleb svakog dana sa integralnim pšeničnim i ražanim brašnom i puno semenki, kao što su susam, suncokret, lan, kim i čija semenke. Recept je jednostavan i brz za pripremu, tako da svakoga dana imamo sveže ispečen mirisan hleb za oko sat vremena. Pored toga hleb je predivnog ukusa i veoma zdrav. Primetila sam da, od kada ne koristim hleb iz prodavnice i pekare, više nemam stomačnih problema. Još ako se kombinuje sa domaćim pekmezom od šljiva i šoljom toplog čaja od nane, eto savršenog početka dana!
Our dining room is very simple and I like it that way. We are at the table all the time, eating, working, browsing on the internet, so it`s nice to be simple and not overly fancy. Interesting fact is that each time we have people over we end up siting at the table, instead in a living room. People just prefer siting at the table, near kitchen, don`t you agree? Maybe it`t because kitchen is a heart of every home...
Naša trpezarija je veoma jednostavna i to je ono što nam najviše odgovara. Stalno smo za stolom, bilo da jedemo, radimo ili smo za laptopovima, pa je najpraktičnije da se ostane jednostavno i ne previše dekorisano. Zanimljivo je kako i naši gosti više vole da sede u ovom delu prostora a ne u dnevnom boravku. Možda zato jer je i kuhinja blizu, a kuhinja je ipak srce svakog doma.
That`s it! Thank you for letting me share little snippets of how we like to welcome Fall in our home. Of course we all want to decorate it and make it beautiful, but it’s really about spending more time with family and friends and doing it in a cozy and relaxing way.
I to je to! Hvala vam na poseti, uživala sam da sa vama podelim delić svog doma u kome spremno dočekujemo jesen. Naravno da nam je važno da svoj dom dekorišemo savršeno za novu sezonu, ali treba se ipak podsetiti da je stvarno važno samo vreme provedeno sa porodicom i prijateljima u toploj i opuštenoj kući punoj smeha.


At Home - Fall Home Tour 2016 - Part 1
Hi there! Today I wanted to share how I’ve added a little fall style to my house. Anyway, if you're new here, welcome! My name is Vesna! I'm a lawyer, DIY-er, and a writer. I’m a modern traditionalist when it comes to my house and I`m drawn to updated classics in just about everything. 
Why At Home Fall tour? Because, when the weather gets cold outside, I prefer to be at home! I adore the smell of freshly baked apple pie with cinnamon, happy movies and good books, and fall is just perfect for all these things.
Inspiration for this fall? Well, a few things actually... The seasonal smells, the pops of color, the patterns and textures.... So, I used some unusual colors this time. Unusual for me...You know me, I`m all about neutrals. But, not this time. My always neutral home has a color injection and now it`s feeling much better. I was inspired by the delicious aubergines, so I use this lovely color and combine it with green and white. Just for additional glam I added animal print and mix metalics.
Enough talking, photos will show you more then words. By the way, this is a tour of my entry and living room. Be sure to check Part 2 of this tour on Thursday to see my dining room and kitchen. Come on in!

Zdravo svima! Danas sam odlučila da podelim sa vama kako moj dom izgleda preuređen za jesen. Ako ste prvi put ovde, zdravo, ja sam Vesna, pravnik, DIY-er i pisac. Ja sam moderni tradicionalista kada je u pitanju moj dom i uživam u klasičnom stilu sa modernim prizvukom. 
Zašto sam ovo nazvala Kod Kuće - Jesenja tura mog doma. Zato jer, kada napolju postane hladno, ja najviše volim da budem Kod Kuće. Obožavam miris sveže ispečenih kolača sa jabukama i cimetom, komedije i dobre knjige, a jesen je kao stvorena za sve to.
Inspiracija ove jeseni? Zapravo, nekoliko stvari. Svi mirisi, boje, šare i teksture koji nas okružuju. Zato sam iskombinovala neke neobične boje. Neobične za mene... Svi već znate koliko sam opsednuta neutralnim tonovima. Ali ne i ovaj put. Moj, uvek neutralni dom dobio je injekciju boje i već se bolje oseća. Osnovna inspiracija zapravo je bila predivna boja patlidžana, kombinovana sa nijansama zelene i belom. Za dodatni glam dodala sam animal print i pomešala metalne detalje.
Ali dosta priče, slike uvek govore više od reči. Uzgred, ovo je tura kroz hol i dnevnu sobu. Obavezno navratite da pogledate drugi deo u četvrtak, kada ću vam pokazati trpezariju i kuhinju. Hajde, uđite!
When you enter the house, this is a little foyer you arrive into. The black faux leather bench is from Jysk, but I changed the legs and I like it more this way. On the bench I added a blanket and a pillow just to make it more cozy when we get ready to go out. My fall hat is ready for some happy walks in the parks. To make it fall appropriate for the season, I added my DIY pumpkins and some dry foliage. Antlers is there just for decoration and glam purpose, of course! 

Kada uđete u naš dom na početku je mali hol. Crna klupa od veštačke kože je iz Jysk-a, ali sam joj zamenila nogare i mislim da mnogo bolje izgleda. Na klupi je ćebence i jastuče, da bi nam bilo udobnije kada se spremamo da izađemo. Tu je i moj šešir, koji čeka na neke duge šetnje parkovima. Da bi sve još više bilo jesenje, dodala sam moje DIY bundeve i malo suvog cveća. Naravno, rogovi su tu samo u dekorativne svhre, da sve deluje malo glamuroznije.
Now it`s time to go into our family room. For me, fall is simple. Cozy throws, mixed metals, organics greenery, chic accents, pumpkin or two and scented candles.
On my DIY coffee table I added just a simple silver try with some decorative spheres and my DIY pumpkin (I couldn`t find real ones anywhere, so I had to DIY it). Fresh flowers, a candle and a few decorative objects was just enough for me. 

Sada vas vodim u obilazak dnevnog boravka. Za mene, jesenja dekoracija je jednostavna. Udobnost, kombinacija metala, sveže zelenilo, šik akcenti, poneka bundeva i mirišljave sveće.
Na mom DIY klub stočiću nalazi se srebrna tacna sa dekorativnim kuglama i još jednom DIY bundevom (nisam mogla da pronađem prave, pa sam morala da ih napravim). Sveže cveće, sveće i par sitnica su sasvim dovoljni.
Extra blanket and a pillow, in a woven basket is always on hand by the sofa for chill nights.
Dodatno ćebe i jastuče u košarici su uvek pri ruci pored sofe za malo hladnije večeri.
Lady on the mantel also got her fur with a brooch just for fun. 
Speaking of fun, my bar cart is ready for some fun with friends too!

Za zabavni detalj se pobrinula dama sa kamina sa svojim krznom i brošem.
Kada pričamo o zabavi, tu je i bar spreman za neka lepa druženja sa prijateljima!
I hope you enjoyed this little fall peek inside our home. I’ll be sharing a Part 2 on Thursday to get you a little bit more in the fall spirit.
Nadam se da ste uživali u ovoj maloj jesenjoj turi. U četvrtak ću pokušati da vam donesem još malo jesenjih inspiracija kada će biti drugi deo ture.


Christmas Home Tour 2015

Hello everyone and welcome to my Christmas home tour! 
This year I wanted it to be my kind a story, copper, white and pastel. 
So when you come in, you`ll be welcomed with our little Christmas tree and a snowy vignette in a box. Our small flocked Christmas tree is decorated with copper and pastel green, with a glittery star topper.Wooden box is dressed in a faux fur and filled with a fresh and faux branches, battery operated branches for little glow and all kind of pinecones. It`s set up on a small table, with just enough place to put your keys and phone when you come in. On the mirror are two garlands in a matching colors.

Zdravo svima i dobro došli u moj praznični dom! 
Ove godine sam odlučila da sve bude u mom stilu, dakle bakarno, belo i pastelno. 
Kada dođete kod nas, dobrodošlicu će vam poželeti naša mala snežna jelka i mala zimska vinjeta u sandučiću. Snežna jelkica je okićena u bakarnim i pastelno zelenim tonovim sa sjajnom zvezdom na vrhu. Drveni sandučić sam "obukla" u veštačko krzno i napunila svežim i veštačkim granama, svetlećim granama za malo sjaja i raznim vrstama šišarki. Smestila sam je na mali stočić, na kome ostaje taman toliko mesta da spustimo ključeve ili telefone. Na ogledalu su dve girlandice u odgovarajućim bojama.
In our living room I used white, copper and pastel pink for decorations. To make it more grounded, I have a little bit of black, just to make it less feminine. I didn`t wanted to make it too busy, so my decorations are very simple and very few. We spend most of our time here, so we want it to be simple and cosy. For centerpiece on my coffee table I just made lovely fresh wreath and put a candle in the middle. This way we have enough free space for coffe, tea or book (or to put up our feets :D).

Nijanse u dnevnom boravku su bakarna, bledo roze i belo. Da sve ne bude baš previše ženstveno, dodala sam tek malo crne koja daje potrebnu ravnotežu. Nisam htela da preterujem sa dekoracijama, zato su sve dekoracije vrlo jednostavne i nema ih mnogo. Ovo je soba u kojoj provodimo najveći deo vremena, zato je neophodno da nam bude udobno i bez mnogo gužve. Za centralni ukras na klub stolu napravila sam venčić od svežeg zelenila i dodala sveću u sredini. Tako nam ostaje dovoljno mesta da možemo da spustimo kafu, čaj ili knjigu (ili da dignemo noge :D).
I dressed up my bar card for holidays with a gold ornaments, Christmas tree, glass angel and wrapped presents.
Malo sam doterala i bar za praznike sa zlatnim ornamentima, jelkom, staklenim anđelom i poklonima.

For the Christmas tree skirt I used big faux fur blanket. It`s so good to use things we already have in a new way.
Umesto klasične suknjice za jelku, iskoristila sam ćebe od veštačkog krzna koje sam već imala. Super mi je kada mogu da iskoristim nešto što već imam u kući na nov način, umesto da kupujem nove stvari.
On the mantel I put together a small vignette with a white garland, some ice branches, snowy garland, candlesticks, bottle brush Christmas trees and my dear lady. She`s wearing a small green crown to look more special.
Na kaminu je mala zimska scena nastala od belih girlandi, ledenih grančica, svećnjaka, mini jelki i moje drage dame. On je za ovu posebnu priliku dobila i zelenu krunu.
My favorite room this year is definitely our dining room! It looks like enchanted forest with this big garland full of fresh greenery and two big willow trees. I spruced up my garland with antlers, add few willow branches and it looked so masculine. To soften it, I added lovely glass ornaments and crystal snowflakes on the mirror.
Moja omiljena prostorija ove godine je svakako naša trpezarija! Meni izgleda kao začarana šuma sa tom ogromnom girlandom punom različitog svežeg zelenila i dva stabla breze. U girlandu sam dodala rogove i još malo brezovih grana i izgledala je baš muževno. Naravno, da se oseti i moj ženski duh, dodala sam staklene ornamente i kristalne pahulje na ogledalo.
For centerpiece on dining room table I put together fresh greenery and flowers in a DIY milk glass vase and adorned it with pastel pink ornaments on a mirrored tray. Finally I put everything on a big silver tray and call it a deal. Of course, bottle of champagne in a festive pastel pink packaging was just perfect for this setting.
Za sto u trpezariji sam napravila mali buket od svežeg zelenila i cveća u vazi od DIY mlečnog stakla i dodala par bledo roze kugli na malom poslužavniku. Za kraj sam sve to smestila na veliki srebrni poslužavnik. Naravno, boca šampanjca u svečanom bledo roze parkovanju je bila perfektan dodatak ovom aranžmanu.
For this romantic holiday table setting I used my white plates with a gold border and silver cutlery and adorned it with just a fresh greenery.
Za ovaj romantični svečani sto koristila sam bele tanjire sa zlatnom obodom i srebrni escajg i sve ukrasila jednostavnim borovim grančicama.
  
Preety presents makes everything a little more fun and cute.
Lepo upakovani pokloni svakako doprinose da sve izgleda veselije i lepše.
Since a deer become kind of a theme in our dining room, this guy find it`s way to a cabinet with some candlesticks and another lantern. This little guy you see in the middle is actually a DIY project on the wooden heart I had from last year. Another two on top of the shelf is another DIY glitter silhouette project.
Pošto je jelen nekako postao tema trpezarije, ovaj srebrni dečko je zauzeo centralno mesto na kabinetu uz svećnjake i još jednu lanternu. Ovaj mališa koga vidite u sredini je zapravo DIY projekat na drvenom srcu koje sam imala od prošle godine. Još jedan DIY gliter siluete projekat su o dva jelena u ramovima na polici.
I even baked my first Christmas cookies this year. This butter cookies in a shape of Christmas trees and snowflakes are so cute and tasty with a hot chocolate or tea.
Čak sam ispekla i prve ovogodišnje Božićne kolačiće. Ovaj buter keks u obliku jelke i pahulja sam pravila prvi put i jako nam se dopao uz toplu čokoladu ili čaj.
To go with a theme in the kitchen too, I added just a few simple details, like little greenery in a pitcher and a snowflakes.
My all year around wreath find it`s place under the hood and Noel sign on top of cupboard.
Pretty deer painting seems to be perfectly right for the kitchen and the theme. This salt and paper shakers was too cute to pass them so I had to buy them.
A da bi sve teklo u istom ritmu i u kuhinji je sve svedeno na nekoliko detalja. Malo zelenila i par pahulja.
Venčić koji stoji čitave godine u kuhinji je pronašao svoje mesto ispod aspiratora a Noel natpis na vrhu kuhinjskih ormarića.
Slika jelena mi je izgledala kao stvorena za temu i kuhinju a ova dva jelena za so i biber su mi bili toliko slatki da sam morala da ih kupim.


Finally, we wish you a Marry Christmas and many happy memories with your family and friends!!
Za kraj mi ostaje da vam poželim srećne praznike i puno lepih trenutaka sa porodicom i prijateljima.
