garden deck inspiration

Do you remember a few month ago I told you I’m going to share some interior design moodboards every once in a while on atreefor2.
Today I’m going to share a moodboard for the exterior design/garden with you!
Because since we planted our new cherry tree for our balcony a few weeks ago (which is in full bloom now!) I imagine myself on our beautiful new sun deck and I really can’t think of anything else at the moment. It’s literally on my mind everyday (at least every sunny day)! I was raised on the countryside and I’m a true country gal who can’t wait to ran barefoot through the garden as soon as the first sunbeam hits the ground in spring!

So take a look at this…

I imagine myself sitting under our sunblind construction – we planned on building ourselfs. Houseshaped and made of metal and maybe wood!? Not totally sure about the sunroof yet but you can see on the skribble below how we imagine it to be (maybe a project for next year or winter to weld this construction). Anyway. This summer I’d love to take a seat next to Martin on my new dream Acapulco-style chair (1) or in the beautiful and comfy IKEA’s Högsten chair (2) wearing Andy Wolf shades (3 & 4) and clink glasses with Martin to our new sundeck! A girl can dream right?…



thrift shopping

Last weekend I had half a day off from the site which was great because I found the time to pursue a hobby I had disregarded for a long time:
Thrift shopping!
I love vintage furniture, light shades, beautiful old tableware, cloth, patterns, colors,…
I’m a true admirer of stuff that was created or build or designed before I was born! someones trash is my treasure!
There are a few places outside of Vienna where you can find a lot of beautiful and unique stuff and one of my favorite ones is this one. It’s a little messy, but everything is in a good condition and the prices are reasonable.
The pastel dishes are called “Daisy” by Lilien Porzellan. Its a true Austrian design classic from the 50ies / 60ies.

I fell in love with this cute sidetable. What do you think? take it or leave it!? (Its not a bargain but the price is ok… but I was not sure so I left it there..!?)


bathroom inspiration

As you all might noticed in the last post. The walls in our main living floor are rendered and white and you can get the idea of having a beautiful livingroom and kitchen area in there!

So every once in a while I find myself thinking dreaming of something called: INTERIOR DESIGN!
yeah! I guess we left the all-dusty-hair-stage behind .(NOT! … but I girl can dream, right!?)

Lately, I’m thinking a lot how the rooms are going to look and I’m constantly working on moodboards for the rooms. I’m going to share some of my moodboards with y’all during the next few weeks.
Today it’s time for the moodboard of our (future) bathroom.

We ordered beautiful cement tiles (a dream came true!) in a graphic pattern (3). I love the wide range and intensity of colors you can get with the different patterns of those beautiful tiles but I was afraid of putting to much color in this tiny room… so we decided to go for a calm color scheme (white, grey & black) but with the twist of a vivid graphic pattern.

With the house (which came fully furnished) we bought this beautiful old washing table (1), all marble and iron. (I’m going to tell you what we are going to do with it in another detailed post!)
And for the walls we chose beveled subway tiles in white (2) – I know – pretty lame/not really groundbreaking classic – but I wanted them for so long! They are so hard to get in Austria (it seems that all of the people in this country are searching for tiles the bigger the better… and I was the only one wanting these classic subway tiles!) Therefore I’m really glad we found them at a reasonable price – the first quotations have been around 100$ per square meter! (now we found them for less than 20$/sqm!)

what do you think?
