How to make a leather plant hanger

One of my dearest friend move back to Europe this summer, before leaving she give me one of her favorite plant and I promise I will give it a special spot in the house. There is a vertical window in the stair case wall, for a time I displayed an homemade hexagon mobile (tutorial HERE). Finally I took it off, and the spot stays empty for a while. It's kind of the perfect place to hang a plant because there is a lot of light coming from the stair case glazed roof. So I made an other leather plant hanger (tutorial HERE), drill a hole to screw a hook and hang my friend gift! It's almost the first thing I see in the morning when I come down stairs and it makes me happy! Thanks for the gift Shabana.
My tutorial was publised on Dream a Little Bigger >>> HERE

The summer nearing its end, and hopefully we can still enjoy a few sunny days. The front porch or the patio deck are places of choice. If you feel that a little something is missing to give these areas more style, a painted floor could be a great option. It's easy and inexpensive to complete. It works on wooden floor as well as on concrete. You can help yourself using a stencil or just work with tape. Have a look at these beautiful DIY ideas more more inspiration.

Iconic furnitures in a contemporary interior

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Regency Shop. All opinions are 100% mine.

Having a nice and personalized home is a daily work. You know that I love to post DIY and affordable projects on the blog. I always emphasize simple, modern and practical decor. Today I'll talk about Regency Shop, a furniture online store. They have a wide selection of 20th century furniture. Don't hesitate to have a look, they offer a large range of good quality replica of design icons. I fully agree that the budget is different than for a DIY, but we're not talking about the same thing. Classic design furniture are timeless and will remain a centerpiece in your decor. If you want to invest some money in a design icon,  you need to have a look at those three seats option.

The egg chair 

Designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen for the Radisson hotel in Copenhagen, the egg chair is one of the recognizable chair of the 20th century. The seat and back are made with a molded shell covered with a layer of foam. It's hold by a sturdy 4-star metallic base.  As finishing cover material you can choose between several color of fabric and leather. The egg chair is the perfect addition to give some style and an extra seat to your living room. You can also use it in your bedroom to create a cosy reading nook.

The chesterfield sofa

The origin about the name and the creation of the chesterfield sofa design remain a mystery. But everyone agree to say that it becomes a design icon. The chesterfield sofa has at the same time, an old fashioned and timeless look. It's curvy and cosy, we may as well imagine it in an old mansion than in a modern interior. It's characterized by the buttons that strews the back and gives it its unique look. We use to see it in brown leather, but if you like a jazzy and colored version various fabric are also available.

The Ibiza chair

The chair is inspired by the Barcelona chair, created in 1928 by Mies van der Rohe and Lilian Reich. It was first designed for the German pavilion of the international exposition in 1929. It becomes since one of the most recognized object of the modern movement, whose motto was "form follows function". We must admit that almost 100 years later, the design did not aged and still perfectly integrate our contemporary interiors.  The characteristic crossed feet and the frame are made out of one piece stainless frame. The seat and the back are two tufted leather cushion. The classic and modern Ibiza chair will fit as well in an office than in your home.
