I love to go window-shopping. I look at all the beauty that is for sale. In furniture stores, bookstores and cook shops. Sometimes I come home with something small, such as a vase or cake tins, but usually I buy nothing. Watching and dreaming is fun enough.
But window-shopping is not only possible in physical stores. Online can be fun too! Many stores have all their products on their websites.This is extremely useful if you do not want to go to a lot of stores looking for that one particular item. But it’s also a lot of fun! With a few clicks you know exactly what there is for sale at many stores. At most websites you can also order these products directly. Super convenient if you want to do more than just window-shopping!
One of my favorite shops for window-shopping online is IKEA. Now that they also have the option of ordering the products, it will be very tempting to order something! The delivery costs are somewhat disappointing (45 Euros for a rug of 100 Euros), so in that respect I will still be driving to the store.
You can create wish lists on the IKEA website. Above I posted my IKEA wishlist. With the absolute number one the carpet. I have seen him in a square but that’s not a perfect size for my living room. I also did not like the blue with green on one of the sides of the carpet. But this rectangle rug would be so nice in our living room! And the price is also very nice: 99.95 Euro for a rug of 2 to 3 meters. The turquoise trolley would be perfect in the kitchen, together with the chairs maybe?

You can get duct tape in so many great colors and prints these days that I had to make a DIY project with it. It is such an easy product to work with and it’s also super strong. I got the idea to make a clutch where you don’t need a needle and thread. Instead you use duct tape to keep everything together. It’s not only super easy it also looks very nice. The duct tape gives a fun color accent to your clutch! The base is made from a table-mat.
Read on to see how to make this clutch from a table-mat and duct tape. . .
I’m a big fan of interiors where the base is light (say white) with many colorful details in accessories and furniture. That also counts for the dining room. A little color makes a home so much more inviting! The blue of the seats on picture 4 really is one of my favorite colors, but I like the orange-red of the chairs on picture 3 too. They are totally awesome! I’m still a little in doubt about what to do with my chairs. I think the white chairs in picture 1 would also be very nice for my kitchen. Hmm … I have to think about it. Maybe I should start with giving my kitchen cabinets an update.
Besides, I really like the colorful collage of paintings on picture two. It gives the otherwise neutral room exactly the boost it needs!

I love kitchen accessories and if I come across something nice that doesn’t cost to much I rarely leaf it in the store. Resulting in a crowded kitchen with kitchen cabinets from which the content falls on the floor when you open them. Not very handy. Because of that I am organizing my kitchen, although I find it very difficult to throw things away.
Despite of my enormous collection I’m still looking for new things. The KitchenAid Artisan mixer is very high on my wish list. It is not only a super handy device, but it’s also very beautiful! And there are so many colors to choose from … A cookie jar in the shape of an owl is another wish of mine. I love owls and this jar would be super fun standing in my kitchen!
