Hi dear readers! I want to share with you a special DIY project I called "Pixel Envelope". I was invited at a party and I prepared a special letter for that who invited me, that's why I wanted the envelope to be distingueshed to. Everyone at the party remarked the envelope and liked it. Therefore I'll show you today how to create it.
Probably, you'll say it is not related to Interior Design, but why not to try to insert it in your home decor. For example you can put it in a conspicuous place in the hall. Here you can keep business cards, bills or anything you want.
Just follow these simple steps:

Nowadays, science develops with quick steps, and we have to get rid of things we don't use anymore, such as CDs. But why we should throw them away if we can give to old things a new life and purpose? Here are some inspirational ideas, you should absolutely try, on how to recycle old Compact Discs:
1. This Simple Disco Ball

Hello everyone. Today I come to you with a very simple DIY project. Even a child can make it and you will have a lot of fun doing it.
It's a personalised piece of art. And you can make images like this for the members of your family and expose them on a wall. Another idea is to make this for your baby every year, till he or she become full-grown.
All you need is: a frame, some markers/crayons/pencils, a sheet of paper and a hand :)
You can even use neon paint. The effect will be astonishing!

Feng Shui has its origin in China and it is an ancient art. These two words mean "wind and water". This concept is based on the idea that people, places and things have energy that materializes in the art of interior design in order to achieve balance and harmony in relation with the environment. For many Chinese is just a specific way to arrange the furniture in a room. Therefore, Feng Shui has the role to ensure a positive flow of energy and "wind & water".
Colors have a specific meaning for this kind of art. Through them we can bring positive energies into the space in which we live. Each color represents energy that can influence emotional and physical state.
Easiest perceived color by the human eye is red. Red is associated with the fire element, is the color of power and energy. This color can mean danger or happiness, feeling of warmth, kindness. Also, in Feng Shui red signifies richness and luxury.
Even if this color has so many benefits it should be used sparingly. Excess of red brings excitement and twitter. You will not go wrong if you will use red for color accents. A single wall decoration will become the focal point of the room. As an accent color, red can be applied to the pieces of furniture or decorative objects (vases, candles, pillows) or Feng Shui decorative elements (red horse, phoenix, magic knot etc.).
In the bathroom and kitchen, you can opt for a red furnishings and white color to balance the power of these accents. Luminaires offer another way to introduce this energizing color in room decor. Oversized red luminaries will give a contemporary look. Although this color is not recommended in the bedroom and children’s room because it prevents the rest, red can be used in small quantities.

Yesterday I was visiting a giant construction materials store from my country. It was a great day because I discovered a lot of new things and got inspiration. Most of all I like the wallpaper section. I saw so many types of wallpaper… I just did not want to go home. That’s why now I want to share with you what I’ve learned.
The wallpaper is a type of decoration that will always be trendy. The variety of patterns and colors allow us to define our own style of interior design, from contemporary to rustic or eclectic or romantic.
Advantages of wallpaper are:
- You can apply them on any surface
- It covers surface defects
- It is easy to maintain
- It can be easily removed
Depending on the composition of the surface layer, there are:
Paper wallpapers - can be washable
Textile fiber wallcovering - mounted on paper, the outer surface is covered with fibers.
Vinyl wallpaper- is the most commonly used type of wallpaper, it is resistant to moisture and sunlight. It is also washable.
Wallpaper you can paint - can be covered with layers of paint, five to ten coats (it depends).
Just remember that a space where is much moisture such as the bathroom and kitchen needs a durable and washable wallpaper.
This wallpaper wasn’t so popular for a good period of time, but now it is requested by a lot of people. But there are so many ideas in your head when you have to decide about a photo printed on wall that it goes crazy. Creativity has no limit…

You can find this unique and unusual interior design (for a bar) in Venice. It is called “The drunken bar” and it’s a Venetian Wanderings. Designer of this special room is Tobias Rehberger, who has a lot of projects with the same idea, namely to create a very special illusion. A characteristic feature of the interior design is that is creates a strong impression. Guests of this bar can easily get drunk even without using any alcohol. Feature of the interior is also its complete draining and masking objects and interior elements with each other. Design goal was to create a mood associated with hunting and militancy. Such design destroys and distorts reality. The result of this distortion is that you can not either see some of the items or can’t pinpoint the location of furniture or interior space. The concept of «La Biennale» is - consciousness can’t sort and correctly interpret the "funky" colors and images that distort reality and our own reality.
