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 Pinboard made of straws

Decor, Pinboard

In the last few years I got a bunch of “save the date”-cards, wedding invitations, thank you cards and the like. I didn’t want to decorate my nice white walls with colored post cards that do not fit to each other and to my interior. So, I never found the right space for them and threw them away. When the couples visited me after their weddings and could not find their handmade cards, they were upset and I felt bad. This was why I was searching for a flexible and stylish solution that fits to my interior design: Pinboards are a structured way of decorating your wall. In my easy DIY approach, I demonstrate how you get the best results.
