Most posts viewed today...Romania!

The Loft House- Brasov, Romania Source

So back to my post about statistics. Today, I checked where most of my readers have come from (last 24 hours) and Romania is officially Number 1....even ahead of Australia. So, after countless hours, I have been searching the internet for Romanian Interior Design...not sure where this was leading but the sites I wandered onto displayed the most stunning modern architecture throughout the world. I have just selected one example of modern architecture in Romania...

 Each floor is made of glass source
To be honest, I am totally thrilled to have a small (but growing band) of visitors from this country, coming over to read my blog. It may not be a big deal for many, but the thought of people from a country so far come and visit briefly really inspires me to keep blogging.

The light in this picture is stunning. Visually the interior is stunning but could I live in a house with a glass floor throughout?  I also wonder about the acoustics in such a property like this. How loud would my 3 screaming boys be in a home like this...and all the running up and down glass stairs!



You would think it would be fairly standard inside by the design of the front facade...

Glass Floor source the concept, but what happens if you are wearing a dress and you have visitors below?
I will leave you with that thought.

Hahahha! Good point about the potential dress dilemma! This is such an incredible home - so unique and modern. I love the combination of wood & glass - but imagine keeping all that glass clean... Yikes! I would love to visit this house, but I think I'll stick with regular floors in my house :-)

I was going to answer your question about homemade chalk paint via e-mail, but I can't find your address anywhere. So, here's the answer for you...

To make homemade chalk paint, mix together 2/3 cup latex paint in your choice of colour with 1/3 cup plaster of paris. Add a bit of warm water if it's too thick (but you want it to be relatively thick). Then paint the piece you want to paint - one coat might be enough, but it's always good to do two. Sand some paint off for a distressed look, and then apply paste wax with a soft cloth. You can use either clear wax or a brown wax for an antiqued look.

Hope that helps!

And FYI, we're doing a complete bathroom reno and this bathroom by Sarah R is the inspiration :-)

Kelly thankyou so much for that homemade chalk paint recipe...I was fascinated as I had only seen shop chalk paint. Yours sounds so much better. I will send you an email today for I think I still have your email from 3 years ago (remember that fabulous letter office you did)

It is great to have people from all over the world come and visit isn't it! Little things like that do inspire us to keep blogging.

That house is very unique, and the light fitting/chandelier in the living room is DIVINE. That has to be the closest light I've seen to something I've been envisioning in my head for a while. It looks gorgeous when it's all lit up. LOVE it!

Lol about the floor and the dress situation, could get a bit tricky if you were having a party in the house!

Ha ha! Reminds me of my last house where we used mirror as the undercounter material for our kitchen island bench.
It made the island bench 'float'. Many thinking there were no cabinets underneath but mini skirt wearers BEWARE!!!!
I'm struggling with my windex expenditure with lots of glass windows let alone floors! Looks pretty spectacular though! x KL
