Remember when I made a wishlist of books about traveling? Well, now I’m making one dedicated only to dwelling, the other face of packmahome.

I already have a pretty good idea of how I want my dream home to look like, but I’m always on the hunt for inspiration, so I hope these books will inspire me and amaze me with different points of view.

HOW TO MAKE A DRAWER FOR A TV STAND

HOW TO MAKE A DRAWER FOR A TV STAND - featured image

We bought a TV stand in second hand for 10 euros. I saw a lot of potential in it and I’m already full of ideas to transform it, make it more practical, and suit our living room decoration.

One of the main things that was missing in this TV stand was some drawers to store all my husband’s junk, AKA PS3 games, controllers and cables. And so the transformation began… with baby steps, of course! Keep reading…

ROUNDUP: 9 INSPIRING DESIGN BLOGS

ROUNDUP_ 9 INSPIRING DESIGN BLOGS-2

Lately, with all the chaos present in our house, I’ve been feeling less inspired… I mean I still have a lot of ideas and dreams, but most of them are not packmahome related or they are long run projects that will take a while to complete. In those times, what I like to do most is scroll down my Feedly and read all those inspiring design blogs I follow (AKA procrastinating). Keep reading…

HOME OFFICE STYLING INSPIRATION

beautiful and inspiring home offices post cover

Did you know that it’s super hard to find inspiration to style a home office?!? Yeah… It is. At least it was for me! I didn’t find one single home office that I loved 100% 🙁 They all looked too fancy, too classic, too similar, too dark, too tidy and clutter free, too cluttered, too monochromatic, too trendy, too… blahhhh Keep reading…

KIDS BEDROOMS STYLING INSPIRATION

INSP_kids bedrooms

I’m eager to decorate Olivia’s bedroom! I think it will be a pleasure to assemble her room and finally give my daughter a space of her own. I want her room to be multi-functional and that it can grow with her, during all her stages and facing all her needs. I also want that if a brother or a sister comes along, the room can easily adapt to the siblings. So every piece of furniture has to be bought considering all of these aspects. That’s why planning and getting inspired is so important! Keep reading…

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN NOTEPAD + TO DO LIST FREE PRINTABLE

TEMPLATE DIM

I’m a list maker kind of person, you know? Everything I need to do and accomplish must be in a list, otherwise I tend to forget it and then of course I don’t do what needed to be done. But I’m also very disorganized as I tend to write my ideas and to do’s on every single paper I find around the house.

This year, one of my biggest goals is to be more focused and organized in that sense. Now I’m using a planner (download it for free here) and I made my own to do list notepad that I carry everywhere I go. Keep reading…

My second favorite room in the house is the bedroom. Why? Because I love to sleep! I love to stay in bed, just wondering and day dreaming. It’s in our bed where me and my daughter play, read stories and cuddle. It’s also in bed where my husband and I catch up and have the most interesting conversations. Keep reading…

This is the first time in my life that I get to decorate my own place, even though it’s a rental. The first time that I’m buying furniture.

And before I start buying new furniture, I want to have an idea of the decoration style I want for my living room. Keep reading…
