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.
