HomelySmart | 15 Nice Umbrella Decoration Ideas

Protector of the blazing sun and uncomfortable splashes of rain, the umbrella. Putting aside its main function, they actually can be used as decorations. In fact, there’s a place in Portugal that put up a display of hovering umbrella above the streets of Agueda. It totally put that place up into the spotlight for tourists. While we’re probably not going to go for something as extreme as that, we are looking for something similar. The idea of using umbrella, old or broken as home decor. Let’s check it out!

1. Door Wreath

Umbrella does look like a bouquet when you stuff flowers in there! This makes it perfect for door wreaths or just a casual gift for someone special instead of plain flower bouquets.


2. Chandelier

With little bits of decoration here and there, it turned this translucent umbrella into something amazing!


3. Upside Down Umbrella Ceiling Decor

Mix a combination of different color umbrellas on the ceiling for a nice hanging decor that suits special occasions like a wedding dinner.


4. Walkway Decoration

Umbrella as wedding decoration is not an uncommon sight. In this presentation, umbrella is used as decoration poles along a path.


5. Open Air Lighting Decor

Not sure where this is but the lighting is amazing. Using umbrella doubles as a protection for the light bulbs. Probably not that effective in real storm but that’s not the true objective here. It makes outdoor lighting looks better.


6. Falling Umbrella Hall Decor

Different elevations of umbrella creates a sight of beautiful chaos.


7. Jellyfish Costume

This is probably a neat idea for Halloween, when you want to be a jellyfish. It’s not typically hard to make this. Just some ribbons for the legs and a battery-operated lighting to create the optical effect. It’s cool as hanging decor in the night too!


8. Flower Holder

Beautiful flowers protrude from the base of this inverted umbrella. It really looks awesome. That’s a creative way to setup some flowers for a beautiful day.


9. Baby Shower Decor

Pinks and lots of pinks! Single themed color suits the occasion of baby shower parties.


10. Centerpiece For Events

A well decorated flower vase is beautiful. But, here’s an extra addon that makes it better. I love how the umbrella matches the color of the flowers.


3 DIY Outdoor Decorating Ideas On A Budget

DIY Backyard Ideas on a Budget


We purchased our third home in the Summer of 2018 and one of the biggest selling points was the back yard. The backyard was private with an in-ground pool and felt like a tropical oasis. Although we used the pool a lot, we still had not added anything to make the backyard and outdoor patio feel like “home.” So today I’m sharing 3 DIY Outdoor Decorating Ideas on a Budget that I did to easily update a patio and a few tips on how to create a cozy backyard where you’ll want to be all Summer. I’m also sharing where to find the best outdoor umbrellas since a sunshade will make a big difference in your outdoor space and the desire to spend more time outdoors!

If you’re looking for budget-friendly outdoor decorating ideas and where to find the best outdoor umbrellas, keep reading!


How Can I Decorate My Patio on a Budget?


The first thing I did to decorate our patio on a budget was to clean it up as best as possible. This meant decluttering items no longer needed or used and putting things back where they belong. I knew we needed an umbrella for our outdoor patio so I used our umbrella as the starting point and inspiration for the rest of the outdoor decorations.


After careful research, I chose an offset cantilevered umbrella in dark brown by Abba Patio. I chose this offset umbrella because of the size, function, and reviews on Amazon. I chose a dark brown umbrella because I knew from experience the darker colors will show less dirt over time 😉


We keep the umbrella folded and covered all the time, except when actively in use. This practice protects the umbrella from damage if a storm or higher winds come along.



What is an Offset Umbrella?


An offset or cantilevered umbrella is an umbrella that is suspended in the air by an offset base instead of a traditional umbrella pole that sticks straight up. I chose an offset cantilever umbrella because it’s more versatile, allowing more space and function to our backyard. This umbrella is well priced and available to ship from Amazon.


How to Choose a Patio Umbrella


Amazon has several options for Outdoor Patio Umbrellas but I prefer to buy outdoor umbrellas and accessories from Abba Patio. We have the Abba Patio Rectangular Offset Cantilever Dual Wind Vent Patio Hanging Umbrella with Cross Base, 9 by 12-Feet, Dark Brown in our backyard and it was a great price compared to Outdoor umbrellas at Lowes or Outdoor Umbrellas at Costco. The Abba Patio ready-to-assemble offset umbrella and umbrella base were easy to put together and I look forward to using this umbrella for years to come!



Abba Patio umbrellas are Best Sellers on Amazon and I can see why!

  • You can’t beat the price! I looked at outdoor umbrellas for a month and Abba Patio offers the best price.
  • High-Quality Materials. The fabric is UV resistant and waterproof. The quality is impeccable and looks great.
  • Easy to Install. We assembled and installed the umbrella and umbrella base in less than 30 minutes.

Do I Need an Umbrella Base?


This Abba Patio heavy-duty base is the matching base for the offset cantilevered umbrella. It will take you some time to fill each of the four base ends with sand, but after a few hours of doing that, it will hold down your umbrella very well. I highly recommend investing in the Abba Patio umbrella base if you purchase the offset umbrella. You will rest assured that your umbrella is being supported by the matching umbrella base.


Where To Find The Best Outdoor Umbrella


I found the best outdoor umbrella on Amazon at Abba Patio. We have the Abba Patio Rectangular Offset Cantilever Dual Wind Vent Patio Hanging Umbrella with Cross Base, 9 by 12-Feet, Dark Brown.



This outdoor patio umbrella is high-quality, looks great, and is a good price. This umbrella was extremely affordable and convenient since it shipped directly to my home from a local Amazon warehouse in 2-business days! I was able to put it together in about 30 minutes and had our outdoor patio decorated the same day. This umbrella is made with high-quality materials and designed to withstand wind. I would recommend Abba Patio umbrellas because you will yield better quality than what you get in the big box stores.

  4. Fill the vase with sand and add a candle.

  2. Assemble paper lanterns according to the instructions.

Quick Outdoor Decorating Tips



  1. Bring the indoors outside. Bring indoor seating outside if you lack outdoor seating. Add pillows and blankets to your outdoor seating area to create a cozy setting.
  2. Create a mini drink station. Use a tray to hold drinks or bring a small stool or stand outside to create a minibar.
  3. Add plants. Even if your backyard has plenty of greenery, adding some flowers or plants will create a tropical, cozy vibe.

How to pick the right paint colors


Have you ever had trouble picking the right paint colors for your home? Choosing the right paint colors for your home can be overwhelming. There are so many different “whites” and “grays” these days, how can anyone know they are making the right paint color choice?


That’s why I put together the best tips on How to Choose Interior Paint Colors in this post.


Every home is different… the entryway in our first home was much different than the entryway in our second home, and both of those were very different from the entryway in our third home! So I chose a different paint color for each entryway in all three of our homes. Not to mention, from the time that we bought our first home, to the time that we bought our third home, home paint color trends changed drastically. The colors that I used back then are no longer a trendy color and well, I just didn’t like the brown-ish tan that was in our first home, haha.


So if you need help choosing paint colors for the rest of your home, head on over to this post to see my paint-picking tips and what has worked for me in all three of our homes 🙂 My post with how to choose paint colors for your home is one of my most popular posts and readers have benefited from reading it before heading to the store to buy paint that ends up not working out.


I also have some ideas for choosing paint color combinations for bedrooms (with themes!)


Paint Versus Peel & Stick Wallpaper


Peel and stick wallpaper has become very popular recently since not everyone has access to tools to build their own Shiplap walls (thanks Chip and Joanna) or wants to tile an entire wall with subway tile. I love tiling but if I could slap up some wallpaper and call it a day, that would make me, the hubby, and my wallet happy!


You can find peel and stick wallpaper online at Target, Amazon, Home Depot, and more! I’ve linked my favorite peel and stick wallpaper and the ones I’ve used personally below.


If you really like the idea of peel and stick wallpaper but have never used it before, I highly recommend reading my tips on using peel and stick wallpaper and checking out the different kinds of wallpaper that’ll instantly update your space!

There are so many different designs and colors and once you get the hang of applying the wallpaper, you will want to put peel and stick wallpaper in the closet, cabinets, bookcases, and more!

Using peel and stick wallpaper has definitely given us the ability to update our home quickly without all the hassle of cutting shiplap, faux wood, or tiling!

If you decide to try peel and stick wallpaper, I highly recommend reading my tips on using peel and stick wallpaper and checking out the different kinds of wallpaper that’ll instantly update your space!

5 Delightful Umbrella Decoration Ideas to Welcome the Rains • One Brick At A Time

Whether you like the rains or not, if you are a Mumbaikar, you always await the rains eagerly just to escape the hot, hot Indian summer! You might tire of them easily and after a month of steady downpours, wait for them to be gone… but the arrival of the rains is always cause for celebration. Last year we celebrated the rains on this blog with a post on monsoon shopping. This year we celebrate with some great umbrella decoration ideas!

A friend of mine recently gifted me this embroidered umbrella.

Isn’t she a beauty? The bright colours and fine sequin work are perfectly pretty.

I recently saw umbrellas used beautifully in the garden of the Taj Gateway at Madurai. They made for a warm, traditional yet glam welcome.

I also remember seeing this last year while walking down the Le Caudan Waterfront in Mauritius. What a pretty way to shade the walkways!

I couldn’t leave my umbrella lying around. I just had to use it. After giving it some thought, I went and hung it from my balcony ceiling, with the plants. It adds it’s own sparkle to that corner, especially when the fairy lights are on at night.

It helps to hide that outdoor AC unit a bit and take the attention away from it. And the bright red and blue add some colour amongst all the greenery.

I quite like the umbrella corner of the balcony!

Such pretty ways to use the umbrellas… it inspired me to look up some more, and hence this post! So call your friends over for a rain themed party, or celebrate the rains simply because you love them. Here are some pretty umbrella decoration ideas for your home.

(1) Umbrella Door Hanging:

Let’s start at the entrance. These door hangings are easy to make and so, so pretty. Use the umbrella like a vase. You could put in big bunch of real or fake flowers, tie it up with a pretty ribbon and hang it on your door.


Use just whites and greens if you want to keep it understated and elegant.


Or a bright umbrella with loads of different flowers to add a pop of colour.


You can also hang these inside the house as beautiful wall decor.

(2) Make an Umbrella Centre Piece:

A pretty lace umbrella in a bright bunch of flowers makes for a delightful centre piece on your table.


(3) Hang Umbrellas from the Ceiling:

A single simple umbrella, decorated with a trim of flowers and strings of glass beads… it’s like a gorgeous handmade chandelier.


Or hang a number of them decorated with greens and flowers to make your private ‘rain-forest’!


Or decorate your umbrella with ribbons and beads and hang it upside down.


I love how everything is colour coordinated here… from the umbrellas to the flowers to the cupcakes… perfect for a girls lunch or girls night out.


Add fairy lights and bulbs to the upside down umbrellas to add romance to your room.


(4) Umbrella Decoration Ideas for Kids Parties and Baby Showers:

Planning a birthday party or baby shower in the coming months? Use these ideas to host a rain themed party!


String up some raindrop cut outs and hang them from the umbrellas. You can go easily use the colours of the raindrops to enhance your colour scheme.


Add some hanging clouds to make a rainy dreamland.


I love this cocktail umbrella garland. You can learn this simple DIY step-by-step here.

(5) Use Cocktail Umbrellas to Decorate Your Food & Drinks:

I used a cocktail umbrella on my Watermelon Nojito (did you know a non-alcoholic mojito is called a nojito?)

Take a highball glass. Take chopped, de-seeded watermelon cubes to fill about 3/4 of that glass, 1 tsp sugar, and 1/2 tsp of ginger paste. Blend all these in a mixer till smooth.

Put some sugar in a small dish. I use powdered and crystal sugar coz I love the crunch of the sugar crystals with every sip. Moisten the rim of the glass by rubbing lime on it and then place the glass upside down in the sugar to rim the glass.

Put some mint leaves, 1/2 tsp sugar and juice of 1/2 lemon in the glass and muddle it gently till you can smell the mint leaves.

Now fill 1/2 the glass with ice cubes and pour the watermelon juice mixture into the glass. Top up the glass with soda. Garnish with a slice of watermelon, a sprig of mint and a cocktail umbrella!

You can also use the cocktail umbrellas to decorate your deserts. My on-the-spot, quick-fix, ever-ready desert for always is vanilla ice-cream…

With whatever toppings I can lay my hands on. That’s delicious looking and tasting!

Now that you have umbrellas in your home and in your food, you’re ready to celebrate the monsoons!

Whether with family, with friends, or sitting by yourself at the window with a cup of hot chai, I hope you enjoy the romance of the rains!

Until next time,

The umbrella was invented in the countries of the Ancient East before our era. Initially, it served as a sun protection, decoration and a sign of wealth for the owners. In European countries, the item was gradually modernized: a folding structure was developed, and the fabric was impregnated with a water-repellent compound.Modern products have become compact, with a lightweight frame with an ingenious mechanism and a waterproof dome. These features made even an old or out-of-fashion umbrella suitable for further use – it can still be useful in an apartment or in a country house for a long time, as well as be an unusual decor detail.

Plants with a shallow root system are planted in any containers with soil. To create a colorful mobile flower bed, umbrellas with a strong frame and undamaged fabric are chosen.At the end of the season, the bright stand can be moved indoors, where the flowers overwinter and, with the onset of warmth, can again decorate the site.

A picturesque flower garden can be supplemented with a “roof” that protects from showers or direct sunlight. The color of the umbrella should be in harmony with the shades of the flower bed.

From a plastic dome, you can make a comfortable greenhouse in a few minutes.

Beautiful country crafts made from scrap materials always attract enthusiastic glances.The composition of plants in a waterproof “vase” with a comfortable handle is easy to assemble for the arrival of guests, and it will delight everyone for a long time.

An anniversary celebration or wedding ceremony is often organized in the spacious courtyard of a country house. For such festive events, you can prepare a short-lived, but very aesthetic decor from an old umbrella and fresh flowers.

Even boring monochrome products can shine with bright colors.

Little lovers of running around the summer cottage will like a homemade kite.To make it, you need a large umbrella and a long string.

Simple but colorful chandeliers that will organically fit into the interior of an apartment and a country house will be a non-standard and cheap alternative to purchased products. The pattern on the plafond of the electrical appliance must correspond to the chosen design of the room.

The rich color of a homemade lampshade will divert attention from the shortcomings of the suburban building room.

A “airy” white or transparent shades emphasize the elegance of a solid finish.

Battery-powered LED elements make an evening walk in the rain more pleasant and safe. A child under a luminous dome, remaining in the field of view of parents, will not run away or get lost.

You can use for homemade products not only the entire umbrella, but also its individual parts. If old wooden handles are refurbished, varnished or painted, then they will come in handy for creating, for example, a colorful wall lamp and a hanger in the hallway.

Needlewomen from the fabric of the dome of the old umbrella sew bags, skirts, dresses and carnival costumes.

To make the clothes inimitable, the craftswomen even use the details of the metal structure when developing the model.

The waterproof material will serve for a long time, protecting children or pets from rain and wind. Any mother can handle the production of a cape, and sewing overalls for a dog will require imagination, sewing patterns and a good command of a sewing machine.

Children’s room will be decorated with handmade toys. Kids will be happy to take part in the development of original “projects”.

It is always pleasant to admire the fruits of your labor, especially if it does not take much time and diligence to create original creations. High-quality materials used for the manufacture of umbrellas can become the basis for the implementation of your interesting ideas.

Autumn hurried to visit us
She dropped the colorful umbrella.
Take your time, beauty,
Let us have some fun!
(The author of the lines is my colleague Tatyana Shadrina)

He will wash the roof at the hut,
Will take Misha to the den,
He will finish the peasant labor,
And then the leaves rustle.
We will ask her quietly:
– Who are you? – And we will hear.

After collecting colorful leaves, attach them in a circle to the umbrella with pins.

There is a festival of autumn leaves in Japan. In the national park of the city of Nikko, an influx of tourists is observed in the fall. And many Japanese take a vacation at this time of year to admire the autumn maples of the park, which are painted in different colors.

We suggest holding an autumn ball, a vegetable fair, an exhibition of autumn handicrafts, contests on this day.Competitions can be as follows:

1.transfer an apple on your head without dropping it

2. Transfer the potatoes with a spoon from one basket to another

3.Blindfolded feed each other with carrots

One of the signs of autumn is the umbrella.

At this time of year, you need to have it always at hand. But who said that the umbrella should be gloomy?

Designers offer painted umbrellas for fall and winter 2012-2013, although boutiques offer such creations at a very high price.

But why do we need boutiques if every woman can paint an umbrella.

You can practice on an old umbrella.

Moreover, we have a couple of repair tips in store for you.

Most often, the needles of the umbrellas break.

This breakdown is easy to repair.

You need to take an empty rod from a ballpoint pen, cut off 4-5 cm from it and connect the parts of the broken knitting needle with it.

First you need to put the tube (a piece of the rod) on one part of the spoke.

Then, on the other hand, insert the second part of the spoke into the rod.

For safety, a little transparent glue can be applied to the knitting needles.

Moment diamond – will do.

It remains to move the rod so that the breakage point is in the middle and wait a little until the glue hardens.

The transparent cone of the rod will perfectly hold the spoke and will be almost invisible.

Another nuisance that often happens with umbrellas is a frayed rivet.

A woman can cope with such a breakdown.

Moreover, an ordinary female hairpin will be very useful and will help to repair the umbrella.

Align the holes on the parts, insert the pin and bend it so that it does not slip.

The extra long ends of the stud can be bent and pressed against the spoke.
Everything. The umbrella is repaired.
And now you can color it.

You can fall into abstraction and be a little lazy.

Let’s take advantage of the beauty of nature.

Acrylic paints for fabric are suitable to decorate the umbrella.

Of course, you need to take moisture-resistant ones for the umbrella.

And the umbrella must be degreased before painting.

Pick beautiful leaves as you walk through the park.They will become a template for your drawing.

Using a regular kitchen sponge, apply paint to the sheet, press it against the surface of the open umbrella and press down well with a napkin.

Paint should be collected more so that it “splashes” slightly.

Remove the sheet – the drawing is ready.

If you are not very fond of abstractions – use stencils.

They can now be downloaded on the Internet in huge quantities and for every taste.

If you have never done this, read the article Decorating clothes.Stencil painting.

Everything is painted there in detail.
If you want the trendiest print, then for 2013 this is of course a snake.

For snake stencils, see articles:

If you like romantic motives more – choose: butterflies, sakura, just beautiful flowers.

The main thing is that you like it and your heart be happy.

After practicing on an old umbrella, you can move on to the “free hand” style.

If you enjoy the activity, who knows, you may become the new famous umbrella designer.

Such a career and work is a reality and it is quite possible to earn decent money by decorating umbrellas

Here, on the left, are several designs of different complexity for decorating a monochromatic umbrella.

Please note that the borders are blurred, as on the two lower umbrellas, the fabric should be moistened in the right places.

And the paint will “float”, which gives such a beautiful halo effect.

However, in order to decorate an umbrella it is not necessary to take up paints.
Laces, ruffles, fabric flowers and plain fabric can be used.

Imagine how a regular umbrella would change if you sew or glue a frill or lace along the edge.

The only thing I want to warn about is to use the needle carefully.

The fabric must not be pierced; the threads must be gently pushed apart with the needle.

By the way, look at how the problem with the hole in the umbrella was solved in an original way.

On the bottom of the black umbrella another fabric is hemmed, and the top has a magnificent decor.

What did you do with pink – you can see for yourself

90,000 Non-tourist places in Istanbul –

Istanbul is a majestic city where you can live for a month and not even explore its 10th part. But, if you have already visited the main attractions of Istanbul and the museums of Istanbul, then curious travelers will have a question about what interesting non-tourist places can be found in Istanbul.In this article we will try to answer this question.

Istanbul Markets

The Egyptian spice market and the Grand Bazaar can hardly be called non-tourist places, but these markets have retained their distinctiveness, and it is very interesting to wander through them and look for gifts for both yourself and your loved ones. What can you bring from Istanbul, you ask? Anything: a Turk, a handmade lamp or candlestick, scarves, oriental sweets, spices. All this is in these bazaars. Or maybe you are lucky and you will find some kind of treasure among tons of trinkets and incomprehensible things.

With the markets in the center of Istanbul, everything is clear, but if you want to see where the locals are bought, then try skating to the Beşiktaş Fish Market. In general, in the Besiktas market, in addition to seafood, many locally produced goods such as textiles and other Turkish trinkets are sold. And if you go down from the market to the embankment, you can dine in numerous cafes or simply take a break and drink Turkish tea.

Ferry between the Asian and European side of Istanbul

There is no longer such a city on the planet that would be located on two continents.And it’s a sin not to take advantage of such a favorable geographic location and not take a ride on a regular ferry with locals from Asia to Europe. In addition to enjoying the views of Istanbul for a small fee, you will be able to see ordinary city residents commuting to work. Agree that not every day you make such a magical journey between continents in 20 minutes?

Street Art Streets

Istanbul is a city where you will find a lot of colorful graffiti.And all because in this multimillion-dollar population there are many people who want to express their protest, disagreement with the authorities through this type of art, or simply show how cool they draw. Graffiti is scattered throughout the city, but the largest number is in the Xishan, Karakoy and Kadikoy districts. If you are afraid to get lost in the illogical interweaving of the streets of Istanbul, you can join the famous Istanbul Street Art Walk excursion in the city or download the special Streetart-Istanbul application with graffiti marks on the map.

Colorful stairs

Despite the fact that the multi-colored staircase has already become quite a popular place among visitors to Istanbul, it still looks unusual and delights photographers. How did this piece of art come about? A local resident once painted a staircase to decorate his neighborhood. But the authorities considered it an act of vandalism and after a couple of days they repainted it gray! After that, the people of the people, in honor of the protest, painted several stairs in the area, which after that no one painted over.The most popular staircase is next to Cafe Nove in Beyoglu district.

Karakoy Street with Umbrellas

Streets with umbrellas have already become a decoration of many cities in the world, and Istanbul is no exception. If you want to take some bright, positive photos, then head to the Karaköy area, where there are many cafes and shops in its narrow cobbled streets, and where you will find this street with umbrellas next to the Karaköy Bulldog cafe.

Istanbul Railway Museum

Istanbul Railway Museum (İstanbul Demiryolu Müzesi) is located at Sirkeci Terminal, which was the terminus of the Orient Express.The museum is small, and you can lay down about 30 minutes to visit it. But you can touch the history of the famous train, see many exhibits (about 300 pieces), old photographs and various elements of the train.

Turkish bath hamam

For those not in the know, the hamam is a Turkish bath with lots of steam. A visit to the hamam is a whole ritual: you first need to steam thoroughly, sitting on the marble slabs, and then you can go for the procedures.The procedures consist in the fact that the attendant rubs you with a hard washcloth, removing dead skin cells, and then makes a more gentle foam massage.

There are a lot of hammams in Istanbul: there is a public one, there are hammams in hotels. This is a great way to recuperate after many kilometers of walks in Istanbul.

I would advise you to visit one of the historic hamams:

  • Süleymaniye hamamı is a beautiful architectural complex of the 16th century, which is still very popular today.The cost of a visit, which includes a hammam + foam massage + peeling package, is 40 Euro.
  • Ayasofya Hürrem Sultan Hamami is a luxurious and very famous bathhouse in Istanbul, which is recognized as an architectural masterpiece. In this hamam you can really steam up like a king and feel like a sultan, because even basins and taps are gilded here! The cost of visiting this bath is 80-160 Euro, depending on the package of services.
  • Ali Pasha Hamam (Kılıç Ali Paşa Hamamı) is a popular pretty hamam, completely renovated in 2012.The cost of visiting with the hammam ritual + foam massage + peeling: 40 Euro.
  • Çemberlitaş Hamamı is a historical Turkish bath. Here you can buy a different number of services, a visit to the hamam alone costs 20 Euro.
  • Cağaloğlu Hamamı – cost of visit: 20 Euro.

Hookah smoking

Since you have come to Istanbul and are in search of non-tourist attractions, then you should definitely immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the 17th century and visit one of the many hookah bars in the city.I do not urge you to become an avid smoker, but I advise you to just visit an authentic place and smoke a hookah from real oriental gurus. Before ordering a hookah, be sure to tell the hookah maker your taste preferences so that you get a really excellent hookah. Traditional Turkish black tea will be served with the hookah.

  • Erenler Nargile
  • Ağa Kapısı Cafe
  • Sadabat Nargile & Cafe
  • Ali Paşa Medresesi – in this colorful hookah bar you will feel the atmosphere of old Turkey.

Street Food

Istanbul is not a city where you need to spend time in restaurants, this city was created for walking and tasting street food, because its diversity is amazing!

Street food vendors are found all over Istanbul. What dishes are worth trying? You can start with street food classics:

  • Turkish bagels with sesame seeds Simit – a classic of Istanbul street food
  • Dolma with mussels (Midye Dolmasi)
  • Kokoreç is a giblet dish.
  • Doner – there is no need to explain what it is.
  • Alyk-ekmek – fish-bread, i.e. fresh fried fish, laid in half a loaf with vegetables and herbs.

Non-tourist observation deck

If you are tired of the tourist center of Istanbul, then here is my advice to you – go to Pierre Loti Café.This modern teahouse is located on a hill in the Eyup area, offering breathtaking views of the Golden Horn. The cafe is very cozy, decorated with old photographs, lovely wooden furniture, and traditional white and red tablecloths decorate the tables. This lovely cafe takes you back to the 19th century.
