Dramatic Mural in the Bedroom

One of my favorite things in my abode is the "over the top" wall mural in the master bedroom.  It is a picture Ryan or I took (the jury is still out as we often share the camera during our travels) printed on self adhesive vinyl.  Believe me, it was not easy to install.  I enlisted the help of my family and spent several hours painstakingly matching up the design on the panels, because once the panel is up there is no way back!  To complete the room I selected the upholstered bed; the platform lifts up, it has storage inside, it's fabulous (link here).  We spruced up our existing dressers from Room&Board (link here) with new  hardware from Anthropologie, added simple table lamps (link here) which visually do not detract from the fore-mentioned over the top mural, and incorporated patterned bedding (link here).  Since I love everything cozy and warm, I use this oversized faux fur throw during winter months.  Would you use a dramatic mural in your home?

Stylish Apartment in Cracow, Poland

Today's post is about 680sf apartment in the heart of Cracow, found on domiwnetrze (home and interior) magazine website.  What makes the space so elegant is the restrained color palette accented with natural wood souvenirs brought back from Papua.  I love the mix of antiques and modern furnishings.  My favorite piece is of course the antique walnut table in the dining area.  Also worth mentioning is the dark and moody kitchen.  The only thing I am not a fan of is the pedestal sink in the bathroom.  I feel that the space could have been better utilized with a cabinet - especially in an apartment with such small square footage.  Pedestal sinks are a common occurrence in European bathrooms.  Do you like them?  See the original article here.
