But that does not mean that I am not creative and not able to make beautiful paintings.

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.
