I have been redecorating my studio lately. Would you like to hear where I got my inspiration? Of course: from other bloggers. DUH! It was September when this amazing book ‘Wohnideen aus dem wahren Leben‘ {Interior ideas from real life} hit the internet world and Gudy – who is also one of the bloggers featured in the book – had a little giveaway party on her wonderful blog. Little did I know, how it would change my next few months, when I heard that I had actually won this book! Me? I have never won anything in my entire life! I was so happy, that Gudy must have thought I’m a crazy woman! The book arrived from Barcelona and found me almost unresponsive because I was sick in bed for days! I had a very bad cold and all I could do was to stay in bed, flip through the pages and get inspired! Oh boy, did I get inspired:
Stilzitat studio via Stilzitat blogI have been working in my studio for 2 years now and have been neglecting it real bad! I changed my mind as I was going through the pages of this book and started making plans for my renovation. I ended up making new walls and floors! And I have to confess: redecorating my studio was one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made! Now I have a room, where I can work for hours, get inspired and style almost anything I want to style – from flowers to furniture… It has the walls I always wanted {an industrial concrete look} and white floors! So, what do you think?

It allows me to play with different mood boards and to quote Gudy: sometimes an empty wall can be as inspiring as a view out into the nature… It works for me… These following images are from the book. I hope, you enjoy them as much, as I did!

I almost forgot, these are a few of the wonderful blogs, that were featured in this book, besides Gudy



    • Danke, Juli! Das kommt bald im ‘making of’ 🙂 Und wenn wir unsere ‘DIY Weihnachtspapiermacherei’ dieses Jahr nicht mehr schaffen, dann lädt Stilzitat bestimmt mal wieder zu einer Atelier Party!

    • I am still so thankful & happy I won… Like G.B. Shaw once said: ‘Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.’
