Earthy Vibes for the Home

For me there is nothing more soothing or calming than adding more earthy vibes into my home. I love the natural colour palette as well as the look and feel of natural materials in interiors – I always strive to add more earthy details to my home whenever I spot something new that fits my interior style. Recently H.  Skjalm P, a Danish design brand, launched their new autumn/winter 2016 collection. I discovered the brand years ago while traveling to Copenhagen. I instantly fell in love with their range of home accessories with a natural, earthy touch. So it comes as no surprise that the new collection had a few pieces for my home too. And I had to get them!

Their new autumn/winter collection is moody and dreamy with that typical nordic twist. It not only encompasses beautiful home accessories, but also a fine range of furniture, lighting and home textiles. Their collection delves into botanical explorations, plays with metals and metallic looks, uses glass and ceramics. I love how ceramics add texture to interiors so I opted for two ceramic pieces for my home. The ceramics are handmade in Portugal and have a wonderful, unique finish.

The tall indigo vase is beyond beautiful. I love the unexpected size and the tactile pattern. The indigo hue is right up my alley and blends in perfectly in my bedroom. Combined with some dried flowers and reed it adds definitely an earthy vibe to my home. I have also opted for a new, grey footed bowl – I needed a bigger fruit bowl and this one seemed just to do the trick. I love the glazing which adds a natural stone look to this ceramic bowl.

Even though summer is back here, I can’t wait to slowly slide into an autumnal decor mode at home. Muted hues, lots of indigo, ochre, grey, combined with natural materials such as wood, linen, and sisal. All these in combination with plants, ceramics and vintage pieces – that’s my kind of earthy vibe for interiors.

A few weeks ago I shared some of my Belgrade travel tips with you HERE and HERE. Today I will round up my (almost) last ‘Belgrade Travel Guide’ in a third post. Why almost? Because there will be two more locations that deserve separate blog posts. Stay tuned. But let’s turn to today’s travel tips for Serbia’s capital – a line-up of cool places and yet another argument why you should visit Belgrade!

Homa Bistrot
This restaurant is a real gem. Located in the lovely Vracar area it is a hotspot for locals and visitors and strikes with two aspects – a fantastic interior design and a refined cuisine. Here you will  have the opportunity to taste traditional Serbian dishes with a modern twist. I recommend the variety of Serbian dips, followed by stuffed vine leaves with minced meat and rice served with yoghurt, a signature dish from southeast Serbia. And as a dessert go for the perfect Urban Jungle Bloggers dish: a dessert called ‘Saksija’, the Serbian word for plant pot. You will get a little terracotta pot with what looks like a baby plant. In fact it is a scoop of creamy mint ice cream topped with chocolate cream and brownie crumble and a mint twig. To round things up opt for great Serbian wines like a zingy and fresh rosé.

Mikser House and Savamala District
I wrote about the Mikser House two years ago here on the blog. Today I want to reiterate the importance of this place. Mikser House is a multi-disciplinary design center which focuses on Balkan design and fosters young creatives. It is located in Belgrade’s buzzing hipster district Savamala which is going through rapid changes (a typical phenomenom in fast developing cities). The Mikser House hosts an event venue, a great restaurant, outdoor bar, and a design shop. The team also organizes the annual Mikser Festival which transforms the entire Savamala district into a creative zone buzzing with life, creativity, art and design (this year’s theme was the ‘Sensitive Society’). Definitely worth visiting! Oh and the Savamala district is absolutely great for a night out – lots of bars, clubs, live music, good food and basically all night buzz!

Princess Ljubica’s Residence
We are now moving from contemporary design to the 19th century. Visiting the ‘konak’ (residence) of Princess Ljubica is a perfect way to experience the lifestyle of 19th century Belgrade where daily life was strongly influenced by Turkish-oriental habits. The architecture, the interior design and the customs had a strong oriental taste, but during your visit you will understand that Belgrade was always at the crossroads of cultures and influences. The interior mixes eastern-oriental and classic European styles of the 19th century.

Belgrade’s Old Brewery District
Located at Cetinjska Street 15 is the old and vast building of Belgrade’s former main brewery. Long has the time gone since there was beer brewn between those walls and the entire complex has a derelict and almost abandoned aura. But when you look twice (and certainly if you come at night) you will discover that this is the new party district of Belgrade. The old brewery building has been transformed into a conglomerate of bars and clubs (like Zaokret) that transform the area into a huge nocturnal party space. It is very typical for Belgrade to transform old buildings into buzzing party spots without the western approach of polishing and making everything look neat. Here, the crumbling facades and omnipresent graffiti are an integral part of the lifestyle. Truly Belgrade.

Royal Palace
Another stop on the historical itinerary is the Royal Palace in Belgrade. This complex is today’s home and respresentative building of the Serbian royal family and can be visited on guided tours. It is located in a lush green park and displays the splendor of past times and and almost tangible aura of royal get-togethers. The guided tour is really interesting as your local guide will tell you more about the rich decor and the impressive visits and happenings within the Royal Palace.

Lunch at the riverside
Belgrade is situated on two big rivers – the Danube and Sava. And the riverside is a popular recreational area for Belgraders. They not only enjoy sunbathing and sports along the river banks, they also go clubbing, dancing and lunching/dining at the riverside. I recommend the lovely floating restaurant Kota 70 for a relaxed summer lunch (they serve excellent salads). The floating clubs and restaurants are yet another typical aspect of Belgrade’s lifestyle. So immerse yourself and feel just like a local!

I hope you enjoyed today’s visit to Serbia’s capital Belgrade with my selection of travel tips. If you ever have the chance, I strongly recommend a weekend getaway to Belgrade and encourage your inner tourist to immerse in the local culture. Experience another way of discovering a city and its people – off the beaten paths and off the polished touristy spots of other more popular travel destinations. Have fun!
