A HOME TO CONNECT

What is the difference between a house and a home? A space and a room? What makes a random area in your house a sanctuary you want to escape to?

At the Milan Design Week we literally kept walking into a new trend that opened our eyes. It is a theme that is all about how connecting with people is more important then ever. ‘Everything is connected’ was not only the title of Jotun‘s design exhibition, we also felt this proposition at brands like IKEA, Carl Hansen and Son, Vitra and many more.

Outside the walls of our home we are constantly connected to the world by social encounters via our numerous devices. With an overload of data we come home in the evenings with our brains still working overtime.
Yet creative ideas are mostly born by connecting with others, talking, discussing, brainstorming and laughing. And that is why our home, like never before, ideally is a place to disconnect the devices and connect with each other.

We feel that a house could be anyones, a home tells a story. Your story. It reflects our personality and is the space where memories are made. The furniture around you should make you happy and can change according to the phase of life that you are in. To us, changing our interior always brings in good vibes and new ideas.
Converting spaces to rooms in your home means bringing in furniture that allows you to connect. Sitting across each other is more inviting then sitting next to each other.  Make your kitchen tables larger, your TV sofa’s smaller…

As true Instagram and wifi addicts, we understand that turning off completely is mere to impossible and not something we desire. Yet we love the trend of creating a home around you that makes you want to talk to each other, share ideas and just be. Because slowing down is sometimes the best way to speed up.

ROZENKELIM – RUG GIVE AWAY


Rugs are  a total must have in our home. They add structure, warmth and soul to a space. The best thing about rugs is that it is such an easy way to change the vibe of a room.

It is no secret that we love to work with Rozenkelim as they have an amazing selection of distressed carpets and berbers. We have used them in our installations of living rooms, bedrooms, playrooms and nurseries like the custom made hot pink Beni Ouarain rug and the grid berber in this girls bedroom. And also in our own living room you can find a vintage rug from Rozenkelim. The darker tones go beautifully with the overall white interior.
