Guest Post: Color in Krakow

Today I'm proud to introduce the first Guest blogger on Urban Style Vibes*.This is a post from one  of my blog friends Carole. She is a stylish interior designer and has an eye for style and travel. A few weeks ago she visited Krakow in Poland and today she is sharing her travel inspiration with us! What do you think? Please leave your comments below and visit her lovely blog here.

Hello everyone.  It’s Carole here from Dear Designers Blog.  Lise has generously allowed me to post today on Urban Style Vibes which is a daily read for me so I am very excited and honoured to be here.

I’m just back from a short break in Krakow in Poland, where the weather was unseasonably warm and sunny…the market square was putting on its Easter clothes…the cafes were spilling out onto pavements and there was vibrant colour everywhere you look……….

10 Things to Do….

  1. Ride in a horse drawn carriage
  2. Visit Wawel Hill and explore the medieval castle
  3. Climb the Town Hall tower for a birds-eye view of the Old Town
  4. Buy some amber from the market
  5. Wander the streets of the old Jewish quarter
  6. Cross the river to Shindlers Factory and the site of the WWII ghetto
  7. Take a trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum
  8. Eat grilled meats at Pod Aniolami
  9. Take in a concert
  10. Take another trip to the Wieliczka Salt Mine  
Thanks so much for having me Lise!!

Back home

My sweeties I'm back from Madrid! Unfortunately I was not able to blogpost every day in the meantime. However I hope you have enjoyed reading so far. Madrid was awesome! I did some good shopping: 2 pairs of zapateros (shoes), a new summer jacket and of course some lovely skirts from the Garden Collection of H&M on which I posted earlier here. Later this week I will drop some images here to give you an impression of our trip. Coming home it's always a good time to think about a new travel destination. Looking at these images from Nicolas Millet I'm pretty sure I would love to go to the Bahamas very soon. What do you think?

Imagine to have such a colourful house with seaview...

Later this week I will surprise you with a lovely guest post from Carole. She has been traveling to Krakow in Poland and I'm sure she will surprise you with some lovely images and travel tips. Please visit her blog here

Wall decoration

Before I leave for Madrid I would love to share some lovely wall-decoration items with you. This is the Danish homewear brand Ferm Living. I posted earlier about this lovely brand here. The good news is that they extended their wall decoration collection. I just love the image above from Marie Claire Italy, lovely styling! What do you think?

Madrid here I come

My dearest blogfriends. How are you? I am ready for a take off to Madrid this weekend. I'm travelling with my mother and we will enjoy this lovely Spanish city with some shopping, museums and sightseeing.
I would love to visit the rooftop bar at Plaza Santa Ana with one of the best city views in town. This bar is a lovely spot.

Enjoy your weekend!

My dearest readers! I'm off for the weekend now. I have a pretty busy schedule this weekend. Tomorrow I will go to ice skating in the north of Holland to watch the World Cup Ice-skating. And after that I will go to one of my friends for a party. But before I leave you I would love to share some colorful sofa's from Roche Bobois with you.

What do you think of these sofa's?

Subway living room

IKEA created a real living room in four of the most busy subway stations in Paris. The Swedish furniture and lifestyle brand “invades” the daily life of people, displaying sofas, lamps and other pieces in the staions, recreating a living room athmoshere for people waiting for their train.The idea is that people can try in first person the quality of the products and their comfortableness being surprised in an ordinary action like going back home from the office.

What do you think of this creative idea?

Home Office

Good Morning! How are you today? I'm doing well. The sun is shining and I will start my work at home today. During daytime I'm working as a PR Manager in the corporate world. Unfortunately I still haven't created a home office. In my daily search on the internet I found two lovely home offices. Can you imagine to have such a lovely office at home? What do you think?

Hotel Banks

Good Morning Sweethearts! How are you today? Did you have a good weekend? I certainly did! I went out to the country side and the weather was so sunny and fresh. I even went out for a walk on the beach! It was awesome!

Today, we travel to Belgium. If you want to discover the lovely city of Antwerp in Belgium, Hotel Banks is a true new hotspot there.  Antwerp is a great city for those who love Belgian fashion (designers) . And the good news of this hotel is that the owners (a Dutch couple..) understand that we guest love affordable design rooms! Room rates start at 95 euro.

Maison Moschino

Design Hotels is one of my favourites when it comes to find design/style hotels across the globe. They've recently added a new Hotel to their top list. Maison Mochino recently opened it's doors in Milano, Italy. It is the newest concept hotel from the renowned Moschino creative team. This hotel offers an experience into the world of imagination and surrealism. The common thread connecting the rooms is a fairy tale theme because to sleep is perchance to dream....

Click here to see more images of this lovely hotel in Milan. On this website you will find more lovely design hotel treats. Enjoy and please let me know what you think of this one below.
