Wallpapered ceilings? / Tapeta na suficie?

Wallpaper – finally made its comeback in the recent years. We see it in all kinds of places; traditional houses, modern flats, as kitchen splashbacks and all over bathrooms. We decorate cupboards with them, frame them, use for collages…

…and put them on ceilings, it seems. What do you think about this idea?

Tapeta – w koncu powrocila do wnetrz. Widzimy ja w przeroznych miejscach; tradycyjne domy, nowoczesne mieszkania, jako ozdoba nad blatem kuchennym i w lazienkach. Dekorujemy nimi drzwi szaf, wkladamy w ramki, uzywamy do kolazy…

…i kladziemy na suficie, na to wyglada. Co o tym myslicie?

Bubble lamp / Lampa ‘babelkowa’

I have always loved bubble lamps. They look so light, airy and magical – an absolute stunner in any space. The bubbles can be perfectly round, and the arrangement geometrically perfect, as here:

Next - bubble glass flush wall light

…or it can have slightly uneven bubbles and be more messy in arrangements, which makes them all the more natural-looking:

So imagine my excitement when I went to this Homebase-style shop in Poland and found this gorgeous chandelier:

I loved it, I checked the price, I could not believe it, I confirmed it with a shop assistant (as surprised as I was), and I bought it! Look how stunning it looks in this arrangement from a designer house:

Since it’s pretty long (80cm) and will probably end up over our bed.

Or the coffee table in the living room.

Or the dining table.

… no, I’m definitely not one of those who never change plans for their interiors.

Od dawna uwielbialam ‘babelkowe’ lampy. Te regularne, jak z dwoch pierwszych zdjec – ale jeszcze bardziej te z ‘niedoskonalymi’ kulkami wzmacniajacymi efekt recznego wykonania, do tego nierownomiernie rozlozone na plafonie z halogenami.
I, o niebiosa, znalazlam taka lampe w sklepie budowlanym – i to w takiej cenie ze musialam oczy przecierac, po czym szybciutko zlapalam za fraki pania sklepikarke ktora musiala sie wspiac na wieeeeelka drabine po moja lampe – no i jest 🙂 Zobaczcie jak pieknie wyglada w Domu Koncepcyjnym 2009 przedstawionym na Apartment Therapy!


Z powodu rozmiarow (az 80cm dlugosci) zawisnie pewnie nad lozkiem.
Albo nad stolikiem kawowym w salonie.
Lub tez nad stolem jadalnym.


…nie, zdecydowanie nie jestem jedna z tych osob ktore nigdy nie zmieniaja planow wystroju swojego wnetrza.
