11 Colorful and Fun Kids' Rooms.

11 Colorful and Fun Kids' Rooms

Each Spring I am always inspired to change things around, even if it as simple as adding a new accessory to a room. I've had my eye on Zion's room to switch things up a bit. These colorful and fun kids' rooms have me so inspired.

How to Root a Stem Cutting from a Monstera Deliciosa in Water.

 Spring is in the air and it's time to get your hands dirty and do all the plant things-design addict mom

 I completed this propagation process last year, but I am just now getting a chance to share it with you. The monstera deliciosa, also known as the swiss cheese plant/splitleaf philodendron is a tropical plant that has become a popular house plant. Pictured on the right is the "mother monstera" and on the left is the baby from the stem cutting- well, now it's a toddler since it has grown a bit.

 I was styling a shoot last year and needed to add some greenery in the vertical space, so i cut a stem of my monstera plant and actually taped it in place (pictured but you can't see the tape) to get "the shot." Stylists will do just about anything for 'the shot." You want to be careful when cutting your stem, it is recommended that cuttings should be taken just after a leaf node, removing the bottom-most leaves.

 Well, after I no longer needed the stem cutting for the photo shoot, i decided to root it in water for planting, so i placed it in this vase with some clean water at room temperature. I made sure to change the water often-every 3 days or so.

After a week, little root buds started to form.

About a  month later, the roots looked like this so it was time for planting

This Spring it will be time to repot the main monstera as it has outgrown its current container. I can't wait! xx

Bohemian Rhapsody in Berlin.

I spotted this bohemian gem in January's edition of Elle Decoration South Africa(the 2017 Field Report), and probably flipped through a dozen times looking at this home over and over.  Located in Berlin, this apartment belongs to two artists, Slavs and Tatars who lovingly decorated it with their travel mementos and gorgeous furniture. Photographed beautifully by Anne-Catherine Scoffoni, each space tells its own story...

Kilim rugs with various colours and patterns adorn and warm up their lightly coloured wood floor, further enlivening their spaces.
