My name is Julia, I am 40 years old, married and a mommy of two.
I am totally addicted to my family, but also to interior, stylings, plants, flowers, blogging, taking photos, creating, being outdoor, travelling to the sea…
I live in the western part of Germany, in a small town with a beautiful, rural surrounding and very next to my home town Dortmund, which is a big city in the so called "Ruhrgebiet" area.
I live with my husband and my two kids in this flat, but actually we are planning our own home.
Oh my… This is hard to answer.
Ok, let me think… The most favourite item is definitely our really large sofa!
It is perfect for relaxing, for cuddling, for reading books, for drinking my beloved hot chocolate on it… and for jumping, my kids would tell you now.
Then there is an old sewing machine, which belonged to my grandmother.
Another item is my new sideboard, because I won this in a photo contest and had the opportunity to configure it on my own.
And last but not least there are all of these flea market finds - mostly vintage pieces.
Be yourself, don't copy someone's style one-to-one, add seasonal flowers and personal or unique accessories to your home style, decorate matching colours, and sometimes, less is more.
Too early, too tired, I desperately need my daily hot chocolate and what's on my to-do-list for today.
I definitely would like to have some knitting, sewing, crochet and calligraphy skills.
Be more brave, discover and follow more and earlier your inner talents and longings.

I adore all humans who have a strong, inspiring and catching personality, a vibrant charisma, who warm my heart, nourish my soul and feed my creativity.
My favourite colour - beside my usual colour scheme white-black-grey-and-wood - is the green of my plants and the blue of the sea and the sky.
And I definitely don´t like orange.
Walking, cycling and running through the countryside, being at the sea, decorate my home (with flowers), plant care and taking a hot shower.
A magical superpower would be great.
For sure cats.
I like how much Dortmund has changed its image and look.
In past days it was known as a city of heavy industry and coal mining.
Now it turns out more modern, younger, relaxed and it is greener than you would think. I like the fact that history and the present are combined so well and creatively and that they fit so perfect, interesting and special.
We like to be in our favourite Italian restaurant, at the Lake Phoenix, by several closed and now cultivated mine heaps with wonderful views over the local area and in the beautiful parks and forests of Dortmund.
