Santorini This volcanic island is incredibly steep, which means the famous and colourful towns that cling to the cliffs offer incredible views at every step. The unique architecture, stunning setting, local wine industry and desert climate led the BBC to name Santorini “the world’s best island” in 2011.   via: holidayhypermarket

Shabby Chic Porch by Patty Rumaker

Hello! My name is Patty and I blog over at Home and Lifestyle Design. Patty Rumaker-Home and Lifestyle Design on {.k.} blog

As part of a six week challenge I redecorated my porch. My porch was in desperate need of an update. I had always loved the romantic vibe of the Shabby Chic style and thought, why not. This is my Shabby Chic Porch. Everything was from found items. The bench is made from and old headboard, the cafe table and chairs were once your standard black color. The wicker chair had been discarded and was in horrible condition. My husband made the trumeau mirror and the coffee table. The pillow is made from an old crochet tablecloth. You can read all about how the porch came together as part of the «One Room Challenge,» by going to the beginning of the first week by going to this address http://www.homeandlifestyledesign.com/2013/10/one-room-challenge-week-1.html  There are a total of six weeks where the progress of the porch is revealed. I would love to have you come visit me at Home and LifestyleDesign

Patty from «Home and Lifestyle Design» opens her home and shares with us tips about the christmas decoration!


Hello, my name is Patty and I blog all about houses at Home and Lifestyle Design. My background is in new home construction where I built traditional homes from 3,000 to 5,500 sq ft. I have always been passionate about design and architecture of not just homes but of all things. Interior design school helped me to see the details of all design. I hope you will come and visit my blog sometime and take a look around.

  * “Glimpses of Christmas” *

For the holidays I like to do a little decorating throughout the house, nothing over the top, some simple vignettes, lots of shiny ornaments and items that remind me of others and past events. I adore white, silver and gold, but it is hard not to incorporate some traditional green and red holiday decor that has been given to us over the years. Somehow it all seems to work together and brings us joy during the holidays. On Wednesday December the 11th I will be participating in the, «Tis The Season,» Blog tour where I will show more of my holiday decor, if you have time I would love for you to stop by.

Thank you dear Patty…!!!

Interview with blogger Eleni | My Paradissi

Eleni is one of my favorite bloggers. Her blog is lovely and I enjoy reading her posts. Let’s meet Eleni!

{.k.}: Hello Eleni, what inspired you to start: «My Paradissi»?
Eleni: I wanted to start a blog to record my interior design and architecture inspirations plus create an online platform to express my own style and connect with inspiring people from around the world.

{.k.}: Almost 3 years blogging, sure they are running fast. How do you feel about this?
Eleni: Sometimes it feels like it’s only been a few months that I have My Paradissi but when I realize all the phases we’ve been through (me and my blog) it feels like ages. I actually get sentimental when I happen to read my first posts. I think I was a different person back then.

{.k.}:As an architect’s opinion which are the basic rules that we should consider when designing our first residence?
Eleni: A home has to represent one’s lifestyle. By that I mean not only the design influences one might have, but the way of living, the everyday needs and habits as well as the budget he’s willing or able to spend.

{.k.}:Which projects do you admire, who is your favorite architect and why?
Eleni: I love the local architecture so much. Spaces that breathe out a lived essence of purity, brutality and harmony. It is a pleasure to see dilapidated old houses brought back to life by architects who respect the unrefined nature of the typical Cretan buildings. Zege Architects have an interesting portfolio to present, from cycladic summer villas to contemporary town complexes and hotels.

{.k.}: You were a speaker in:»The Hive blog conference in Berlin -May 2012- a few words about this experience?
Eleni: It was an amazing opportunity and honor to be invited to speak in the first European blog conference in Berlin in 2012. I got to meet bloggers that I followed for a very long time and, to be honest, its something like meeting a favorite movie star! Truth is I learned so many new things and all sorts of inspiration on blogging.

{.k.}: You are one of the bloggers that participated the: «Wohnideen Aus Dem Wahren Leben» book. It sounds amazing! To whom do you suggest this book and why?
Eleni: The «Wohnideen Aus Dem Wahren Leben» is a book crammed with inspiration from 15 of the most famous design bloggers in Europe. I was thrilled and totally honored to be part of a team that consists of Holly of Decor8, Igor of Happy Interior Blog, Nina of Stylizimo, Desiree of Vosgesparis, Jeanette of By Fryd and many more others. The book is in german but the text is not the important part of the book; the amazing photos of the inspiring interiors are. Anyone who’s interested in real life eclectic decor and everyday living should get himself a copy.

{.k.}: You live in Crete -Greece- do you feel privileged?
Eleni: I can’t say whether I’m privileged or not. It’s more of a feeling that I couldn’t leave anywhere else but here. Crete is my heart, my root of existence, I just can’t imagine myself living anywhere else. Although I spent 10 years in other parts of Greece studying and working, I always knew that I had to return to the island one day.

{.k.}: A dream of yours?
Eleni: It might sound funny but in the years of crisis we’re going through my dream is to create and grow a family that lacks of nothing. I would love to see my blog expand and become my full time work. That, and a beautiful stone house in the cretan countryside!
