Happy Weekend: A New Print In My Bedroom


Fridays are the best, aren’t they?! I just love knowing that the weekend is stretched out ahead. Do you have any fun plans? I’m hoping to head to the cinema and have some home DIYs to complete for upcoming blog posts. Talking of home updates, remember the print of Lisbon I fell for a few weekends ago? Well, it arrived yesterday and once I slipped it into a frame I knew I had the perfect spot for it. This corner of my bedroom was calling out for a hit of colour and I think the colours go perfectly with the stripy bedding I bought last year, don’t you? I love that quick and affordable updates like this can bring a whole new perspective to a space. Plus, it’s easy to swap out the print for something new when I feel like ringing the changes! What do you think, folks?

    Lisbon is a MUST visit! You’ll love the streets, the yellow and pinkins facades, the pavement on the streets (which we call “calΓ§ada”), the simple and tasty food, the wine…
    And the light. Lisbon has this special light even when the sky is grey :-)
    Gosh, I miss home…

    it is perfect Will! Loving the white frame as well and how much the bright colors pop against the crisp white walls! Can’t wait to see more of your bedroom!

    Chris is not coming over until Saturday afternoon and that gives me the freedom in the morning to hit the local farmer’s market to pick up some gorgeous peonies! LOVE them.

    Have a top weekend boys!

    This print is lovely. I am looking for a particular Greek ministry of tourism ad from the sixties. Any suggestions where I could find it?

    You’re so lucky! I just hope that this picture will inspire you everyday just like Lisbon does to everyone else! It’s definitely a must visit!

    I love it Will, and it does match the bedding perfectly. Still need to visit Lisbon. Happy weekend, may it be more relaxing than the last one ;-)

    Oh Lisbon – it’s been on my list of places I want to visit for so long… I’m sure looking at this beautiful print every morning will inspire you to go there very soon. I like the color scheme, colorful but calm, perfect for a bedroom. Have a great weekend!

    Love the colours, really cute and Portugal has a special place in my heart too :)

    I love it! I really like when frames are just casually propped against the wall on the floor. Such an easy, low commitment way to add some color. And it looks so chic!
