Inside a downtown Athens Loft

Hello and have a nice month! Have I told you how much I enjoy Home tours? Today I decided to post an old project, into which I ran accidentally yesterday (dated on 2012), yet very genuine, concerning a renovation of an abandoned neoclassical building in Athens. Natalia Kokosalaki was brought on to successfully renovate this space according to her client' requirements. 

I envy those talented folks that have this amazing perception of space, and manage to create a cozy space by combining contradictory elements which yet work harmoniously together giving the viewer a satisfying sense of belonging.

So here I am, trying to put down only now (alas!) my resolutions for 2015! I glanced at my last New Years Resolutions, and guess what??

Portraits of random bus passengers

How many times, while on public transport, have you captured yourself gazing at the passenger sitting opposite you, contemplating over grabbing your smartphone and snap a picture of him/her? To me, it happened several times.
Talented photographer Nick Turpin, has made a collection of different portraits of anonymous people during their transit from work to home, and captured successfully so many emotions.

As we are getting further to Christmas, I have been searching for the best ornaments to decorate our new house. Under this spirit, I have decided that this is a great opportunity for me to spend some creative time with my girls and design our advent calendar! As a kid I remember my father was bringing us chocolate filled advent calendars, which we adored! However, I prefer that my girls would not eat one chocolate for 25 days in a raw... instead, we could design an activity advent calendar and fill it with small "surprises", a nice idea to get the family doing things together during the holidays. 
Therefore, I searched the web to find the perfect DIY advent calendar and here is some inspiration. Have a gander at, and help me to decide:) :
