Bring summer to your home – #1 Palm picture

Allgemein, Geometric Paintings, Paintings, SUMMER

I don’t know how you feel, but I am still not in summer mood yet. I have no big vacation planned in the next few weeks and the weather in Hamburg is rather mixed. At the same time I am craving for a feeling of ease, joy and fun. As I can’t change the weather, I want to bring this feeling inside my home. This is why I prepared 7 DIY projects for the next seven days. Get inspired to #bringsummertoyourhome.

  1. Source of inspiration

I created a summer mood-board on Pinterest to collect all the interior ideas that inspired me for my seven DIY projects. Furthermore, I found 5 handmade products that could immediately bring summer to your home or get inspired by MONOQI.

DIY 3D Painting Triangles – Part II

3D Painting, Allgemein, Geometric Paintings, Paintings

For this DIY-Project I got inspired by Søstrene Grene, which is a Danish chain of retail stores that was created by two sisters, Anna and Clara. They just opened a store in Hamburg, where I went last week. The display window succeeded in tempting me going into this shop. You can find various product categories such as interior design, stationery, gift wrapping, crafts, kitchen goods and toys for children. “Common to all products is an elegant and feminine expression that brings beauty to everyday life, while the prices are always kept at a reasonable level.” Perfect match! I bought some drinking straws for my next DIY 3D painting project.

My 3 best ideas for pimping up your home with Washi Masking Tape

Allgemein, Candlesticks, Decor, Geometric Paintings, Paintings, Picture Frames

#1 Painting with Masking Tape

My painting skills are at an average level, but not very advanced. Once I am finishing a work of art, I am hesitating to put it on my wall. The results simply do not meet my expectations and satisfy me. Then I found an easy technique to paint beautiful pictures without tremendous creativity or very good painting skills: Masking tape really helps you to get perfect paintings that can be adapted easily to fit your interior.

So for me Masking tape is the perfect tool to stimulate my creativity: The good thing about it is, that you can easily remove it. You can try as many things as you want until you get your perfect results. Especially on the wall this is a major advantage.
