Loft Inspiration



How to style a loft? In many big cities you live in a single space. The idea of a loft has been around forever it seems, but that is for a good reason. A loft gives you a lot off diversity and options to decorate your living area. But it’s not easy making a beautiful open space, cozy and curious. For your daily dosis loft inspiration see this blogpost or my last post about The Loft. Continue Reading…


Mod collection by Mae Engelgeer



Two weeks ago I visited Studio Mae Engelgeer for one of my projects. As the name says, Mae Engelgeer, a talented Dutch textile designer, runs her own studio in Amsterdam.

She showed me her newest work: the minimalistic MOD collection. This one is my favorites, perfect colour combinations, and the soft sense of materials.  Continue Reading…


The Musket Room NYC



The Musket Room located in Manhattan’s Nolita caught my eye because of the mix of trendy, old industrial and folksy ambience while I was living in New York.

In designing The Musket Room, Alexander Waterworth Interiors had a lot of freedom. They spent a lot of time with chef Matt and owner Jennifer to really understand what kind of feel they believed the space should have.  Continue Reading…


ferm living new collection SS15


Are you in the mood for some changes at home? To add some new accessories to your home and lighten up your living room with new colours on your walls or arrange a new setting? Maybe cosy and light?

This time of the year, brands present their new collection for SS 2015 and so does the brand Ferm Living. The new collection is stunning, you get so easily inspired by the new products and beautiful styling. Just indulge in the everyday aesthetics and design. The brass Hexagon pot is my favourite. Interesting as brass is now competing with copper. Watch this, a whole new trend is coming up for fashionable living! The combination with the soft colour palette, a touch of blue and brass makes it refreshing and light in white interiors.

The collection shows more objects, as concrete pots for green living. In my last post (link) I was enthused about more green inside, but now the focus is on outside. Love the grey as concrete pots with dune grass for my roof terrace. I’m curious what your favourite objects or colours are?

Get inspired by these images and check out their lovely look book.
