Random DIY Roundup

Time for another random DIY round up. As some of you may know, I'm not much of a DIY-er. But the subject fascinates me so I keep collecting projects I think are cool. Instead of letting them sit in a folder, I like to share them here, in hope of inspiring others, maybe.

I've been thinking about the DIY phenomenon. I mean, it's nothing new, but it's so prominent. Do you consider DIY a design category in itself? If you copy a design, but actualize it with your own stuff and your own hands and maybe tweak it a little, does that make you clever or a thief? Hmmm...

Here are some of my fun finds:

Touring a Sweet Shop in Berlin (pt.1/2)

Happy Monday guys! Today and tomorrow we're going to do something a little different here at HvH Interiors. I'm going to take you on tours of two charming Berlin shops.

I originally prepared these posts for a different project, but it turns out they won't be being used for it. So instead of letting them go to waste, I thought to share them with you.

Time to share another fabulous online shop!

Today I'm sharing a charming Dutch shop called Orphan Socks. Have you heard of them?  "Unique" seems to be the key concept at Orphan Socksjust like the lonely socks you pull out of the wash that you swear had a partner before going into the laundry. 


If you're into flashy, this is not the shop for you. Instead they're items boast unique, simple designs that radiate with an understated elegance. I love their stuff because even though they're so simple and easy on the eyes, many of the designs are surprisingly clever which makes the items so fun! Have a look at my favourite picks:

Spring Inspired Colour Palettes for Interiors

Hello to you all! I'm glad to be back from my "piccola pausa". Hope you didn't miss me too much ;)

Today, the sun is shining brightly and the birds are chirping. In fact, they are chirping so happily, that they almost sound frantic. Spring is in the air. Therefore, I thought to share some colour palettes for interiors that were inspired by pairing spring scenes to interior schemes.

ps. Do you remember the ones I did for autumn and winter?
