A Girl Called Yvonne....
Im so happy to be featuring another creative girl and this time we're heading on over to Germany to meet Yvonne!
A crafter, a blogger, a keen decorator and a super creative wife and mum of three!
Yvonne loves to crochet and sew and has a fun workstudio in her home where she paper crafts
and creates fun collages and cards for her Etsy shop.
She also collects dolls and enjoys decorating her gorgeous home.

Yvonnes lives life passionately creating beauty for her family.
Welcome Yvonne!
Can you tell us what is currently inspiring you?
Next to everything!!
I would say, The seasons, magazines, shops and cafes we are visiting, other people's homes seen in blogs, on Flickr, Tumblr or Pinterest.

Name 3 things you couldnt live without right now?
okay, 'my family' is not things so I have to admit my computer who keeps me connected to the whole world, chocolate in any form and books.

Can you define to us, your personal style?
Juxtapositional if that exists.
It is a mix and match of old and new, modern and vintage and it is coming from all over the world

Do you have a favourite colour (or colour combinations)?
I tend to come back to Green all the time.
The main scheme for me and the house would be all sorts of natural/neutral colours like beiges, taupes, sand, grey.
Sometimes it gets more exiting on a particular wall or in my clothings and you"ll find a touch of Purple, Green or any variety of Blue

What about a Favourite Smell or Frangrance?
My favourite smell is my husband's skin, my favourite fragrances are 'Cashmere mist' from Donna Karan and 'Caleche' from Hermes

What do you love about your City?
It is so picturesque and beautiful and green and yet upspringingly stylish - maybe because of all these students who are roaming the scene. There are a lot of tiny shops and cafes along the cobblestone streets. It is small and you can access everything by foot from our house in the centre of the small town. And the big City Hamburg is just 30 minutes away if you ever need it!. For a family it is perfect - having everything at hand, the children can go everywhere on their own and a great landscape is just minutes away - not to mention the seashore within 1 1/2 hours of driving.

Do you have a favourite quote you'd like to share with us?
There are so many and I am collecting them but what I liked the most over the last few weeks when I was so occupied with looking for a new home and sorting out things in the old one
was this one i found via Pinterest: "What I love most about my home is who I share it with!" from Ted Carpenter
