house decorating inspiration / uređenje doma inspiracija

How do you go about creating an outfit? Where do you look for inspiration? I myself have many tactics. Sometimes I like to concentrate on a certain accessory and start from there. When thinking about inner design, a similar tactic can be employed. Take for example this white stood. It can be used as a chic footstool or as an additional sitting place for your guests. A piece like this one can direct you in furnishing your home. I always feel drawn to white furniture because it makes any room lighter.

Furnishing our home is as challenging as getting dressed in the morning. Just like with our personal style and clothes, we like to keep an eye on the trend but still we want something that reflects our own personal style. While we may chose an outfit that is composed of trendy clothing items and probably have fun while doing so, most of us have clothing items we always come back to, those we can rely on.

 When furnishing your home, try to connect the pieces together. No, everything doesn't have to be matchy matchy but usually people want some sense of connection between their furniture and since it is your own personal space you will want it to reflect your own personal style.  Let your living room have a meaning to you. You will want it to look nice for others, but it is your home so you're the first person you should be trying to impress. Our home should be our oasis.

 Make a list of colours and styles you like than give it some thought. What is it that you really need? What will best suit your needs? Write down all the things you want to buy or that you like and then try to connect them in your head. You will want your living space to be clutter free and functional. Ask yourself how you can best achieve that. Be realistic in your expectations but don't forget to dream.

 It is not probable that you will change your furniture every year so try to think about items that will last you for a long time. Just like every woman needs a white shirt or a LDB in their closet, so you will have to think about those practical and timeless pieces. When I was asked by Modani to think of a way to infuse my personal style into a living room, I realized that I'm most drawn to the elegance of black and white. One can always build on that, by adding silver accents for example and thus creating that modern look we all look for.

Take a look at this black modern sofa below. I've picked it out because it is such a statement piece but at the same time just like LBD, it feels very timeless. All you need is some good accessories and you're all set. We all need something we really love in your closets and the same goes for our home.

 Whether you start by choosing an item that will be your setting point or by already having a clear vision in your head, make the process as fun as possible. If fashion and clothes can make us feel better about ourselves, so can a lovely furnished home. Give it some time and don't be afraid to invest some effort, it is always worth it in the end. I hope that at least some of you are inspired by these collages I have put together. I wish you all a great start of the week.


  1. love it<3


  2. Great interior ideas, Thx for sharing, Ivana, I love black and white, it's such a clean look.

  3. It's funny how modern homes seem more difficult to furnish to me than traditional ones... contemporary furniture is reduced to the essentials, the corners and the edges, and it makes it that much more necessary to coordinate it with similar items, where as many traditional items seem to mash together quite well. I love that this is an inspiration for you, Ivana! Functionality is very important both in terms of fashion and living for me. :)

    1. you're right...modern houses require different pieces and we must always thing about the space the furniture will be placed in...functionally is very important.

  4. I like how you compare getting dressed to decorating a room. There are indeed a number of similarities and the effort is worth it for sure. All these modern design pieces are really fantastic.

  5. Beautiful and stylish furniture and decorations!!


  6. I love the black and white decorations in the interiors! Very nice inspiration Ivana!

  15. Predstavila si lijep stil, jednostavne, ciste linije, minimalisticki i moderan. I meni se takav stil prije jako svidjao, sada sam se vise orijentirala prema vintage i shabby chic! Ali svidja mi se bijeli namjestaj!

  16. Nice sofa! and love the lighting,too!!

  17. It took us a month to completely furnish our new home. While it was fun to go shopping but after a couple of weeks, it became extremely exhausting. I refused to take our time because I desperately wanted our place to feel home. During those time, I actually got my inspirations from blog posts such as this, it was extremely helpful to me.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
