WAYS TO PREPARE YOUR BALCONIES AND TERRACES FOR SUMMER There are times in life that we feel really breathing; the times we really feel we live. The times that we feel our soul and our cleverness is purified and feel the tranquility as something concrete. Sometimes we feel it on seaside, sometimes on a corner of a large park where the trees are shaded, sometimes on a corner of our house we prepare for ourselves. And if summer started and the weather is lovely as the described by Orhan Veli in his verse that “This lovely weather has brought on my ruin” the nature also participate this purification ritual. We want to escape to nature and reach sea, water and soil. It is not a coincidence that the human being feels good and safe when he/she sees greenery, and excited when he/she sees blueness; There are subliminal roots dating back to the First Ages. If we can not escape to the nature these days we feel enthusiasm of spring and get ready to meet the summer, we bring nature to us and can turn our balconies and terraces into small spots that we leave our behind the tumult of the city. We need a little bit of exertion, plenty of inspiration and imagination to make balcony and terrace decorations. So let's start!   36.// - Bodrum Gündoğan Villa Spring cleaning starts! The first thing we need to do to turn our balconies and terraces into a living space to spend time with is to make a strict cleaning and reparation and prepare these areas for the new season. First of all, we have to give up using our balconies and terraces like warehouses. Get power and inspiration from the principle of minimalism simplification, and get everything you do not use from your life. If there are stuff that you are able to convert or simply use them as a decoration item, put aside them. For example, if you have furniture that you can use as a table or a shelf, you can bring back to life them with a few touches.   Dila Gökalp Architects – Bebek House Location and size are important Before you start decorating, you need to determine the location of your terrace and your balcony, which across that it looks, where and how much sun and wind it gets. If these areas are very windy, you can create a comfortable and aesthetic living space with a folding screen or shady spot or a decorative sunshade if it gets too much sun. If you want a more feminine effect, you can also benefit from the tulle curtains. If you have a large balcony or terrace, you can use garden furniture.

If your space is available, you can also include a stylish fireplace for your cool spring evenings.

The size of your balcony or terrace is also very important. You can use dark colors for large terraces; For French-style small balconies, light colors create a more spacious ambience. Rationalist solutions for small spaces After determining and applying the main color, it is turn to determine the furniture.

BABY ROOM: FIRST STEP TO LIFE It's a big event that a baby join our life. This new and fresh life, which can change our point of view, becomes a start for making breakthrough changes in our homes. Now that we are all familiar to get furniture that produced from materials that healthy for baby, BPA-free painted colors, do not create toxic effects is the first rule of everything. On the other hand, there is an unlimited choice for room decoration to feed the development and emotional world of this new family member who will soon pass from babyhood to childhood, but this is exactly the point to be careful and attentive. Using a endless options produced for children in a in company would not be very useful to expose the baby to visual pollution or to stereotyped gender direction. The first thing we need to think about is to use healthy materials that are appropriate for the baby’s sensitive frame, and the second most important issue is to create a world that will surround his/her needs with peace, warmth and joy without forgetting that he/she is a baby. Simplicity is important in the babies rooms who should not be exposed to too much visual stimulus. Applying pastel tones and cheerful color palettes is always more appropriate. From simple and light-colored furniture, cradles, baby cots, an adequate wardrobe and a dresser for a baby meet basic baby room needs. When pointed corners and possibilities to fall are eliminated, colors and shapes will remain.   If we say the marvelous world of baby wallpapers create the hardest choice but most joyous area, we do not exaggerate. You can create a colorful atmosphere with patterns aggregate with alphabets or forest animals, shapes or dreams. If the pattern density of the wallpaper is high, you can apply the wallpaper on one or two walls instead of the entire room and leave the other walls blank for photos and tables. It's a good idea to side with colors on the walls that are light or dark, but not always tiring. The theme colors such as sea green, light pink, gray, sugar pink, azure blue, and small but attractive details with red, fuchsia, orange, vivid green in around help contrast and understand the world. Actually, the most important element that will complete all these is a comfortable seat for the mother who will be with her baby and a father who wants to spend plenty of time with them, a soft blanket for a sleepless night and a comfortable pillow support. It is very important lighting up the nights with a sweet light. A light support whether it is a chandelier, a lampshade, or a lampstand, is very valuable for both mother and baby, which is not tiring. From textile to top lights, wooden lampshades, wall sconces, you can provide a peaceful lighting that takes away the tiredness. The most important application in baby rooms can be thought of as being sufficient compartments for in-cabinet classification, because there is a need for a sufficient number of useful compartments so that the tiny newborn clothes, socks, gloves and necessary care materials can be kept in order and in hand without being dispersed into the room. For this reason it is reasonable to focus on these details when choosing a dresser and a wardrobe. Since the developmental stages of babies will change without interruption within months, it will be good for parents to make a carpet selection that is easy to clean that is able to confront everything is in the room; all food, saliva and crumbs. It is very important to leave an empty area where the baby can comfortably move in the room. Because the rituals of first turns, crawling and upstanding will be experienced through these empty spaces; you will reach to roll in floors and the tickling sessions. In Montessori, an important and popular theory in baby development, can provide a place due to considering the fact that babies develop their ability to handle their own affairs according to their months / age, thus babies can take and mix up their own books from a few shelves that have 1 meter height and the books organized side by side so that book covers can be seen for picture books. Fabric-coated wicker baskets for toys and dirty clothes, cute lighting solutions, framed illustration tables on the walls will be small but valuable touches to prepare a useful and pleasurable baby room. Soft veils, figure-shaped pillows should be on your list as details that your baby will love to hug and feel safe and warm among them. The beauty of the textiles in the baby rooms is incontrovertible. The curtains are an important focus of your baby's vision that loves looking at the light and focuses on the light, and the bedclothes are also a takes in a priority place to lay down and show interest in both the texture and the colors. Folded blinds or flying tulles and patterned curtains can be very interesting for the baby. On the other hands you can choice the bedclothes from cotton and delicate fabrics that have a solid-colored background waving marvelous illustrations and animals, plants, letters and objects are seen. The importance of a newborn cradles that can be attached to a parent's bed for a baby that is desired to close to the mother for the first few months is increasing day by day. In recent years, when the subject of safe attachment has been widely discussed, mothers side cradles have taken a rightful place in the list as an important baby furniture. Although the days that all villagers grow up a baby grows are in the past, we socially still the importance of this and as it gives them the chance to grow up as a whole with the all family, it begins at the safeguarded limits of this understanding room of, which will also gives the rights of individuality. Considering the baby room as not just a room, but the first developmental stop of a character that will grow apace and improve and be integrated into the society, gives us much more heartfelt ideas about decorating it.  
CENTER OF THE HOUSE AND MIND: BOOKCASES The most precious furniture, with innumerable worlds within it, is undoubtedly the bookcase.

If we think that reading habit are mostly achieved in childhood, it is very important to place bookcases that addresses children’s ages, heights and souls from the time of their infancy. The flat structure is one of the ideal solutions, allowing the Montessori bookcases to see the height of the book and the book covers, and children are more likely to connect with the books they see with their covers and examine them further. In addition, book shelves to be prepared from Scandinavian wall shelves and even kitchen favors can be conveniently used in children's rooms with convenient and not too heavy book supports.

Shelves that rotate around a column and pendant shelves are examples. The bookcases in our study rooms are also prestige monuments which show our cultural and intellectual substructures. For this reason it is important to look at the bookcases not only as interior elements to be filled in, but as a friend who reflects our identity, and to choose a design accordingly, the phrase ‘tell me who you go with and I'll tell you who you are’ suits the most for our books that we fill the selves with.
