Being back home and sleeping in your own bed is always such a bonus after a beautiful long holiday. And new bedding is my way to celebrate. It always wants me to stay in bed. Midnatt is a Swedish based brand offering bed linen in crisp organic cotton. The combination of colors is what we fell for when we came across the Midnatt account on Instagram.
We are supporters of small businesses and mostly find them through social media. You will be amazed how many beautiful brands are out there. But the best thing is, that the people behind such brands are hard working yet super enthusiastic entrepreneurs. They often start a business because they feel that they can bring something to the table that is unique. And their passion, creativity and ideas make it stand out.
We chose for the Midnatt Rubra duvet cover and fitted sheet along with some extra pillow sets in Wilted. Warm colors always give your bedroom a more cozy and romantic feel. And the times are gone where your bedding has to be all in one shade. The fun starts when you can play around with different colors and shades, patterns and materials. So try and get creative. The result here: I can’t get out of bed and totally ready for the colder, autumn months!
Six months ago I started the little adventure called fronteriors together with fellow stylist and friend @houseofhawkes. We both had a dream to design and build furniture. And so, without any big fat business plan, we decided over lunch to design a range of custom doors and tops to fit a selection of IKEA furniture frames that we work with a lot in our interior styling jobs.
Over the last few months we have been selecting materials, colors and accessories. We had to get techie and design, build and test a website. The fun part was seeing the actual product come to life and doing the photo shoots. The less sexy side was tons of admin, calls, errors and hick ups. However: no rain, no shine… and we did it!
This month the website and webshop of fronteriors went live! You can finally go online and order your favorite top, doors, sides, handles and legs for the BILLY or BESTA and create a bespoke, unique and beautiful piece of design furniture. Whilst we know it’s not flawless, and we are already working on 2.0 we wanted you to be able to shop and explore the concept rather sooner than later.
This adventure was fun and full of eye opening lessons in building a business. And something tells me that there is more to come…

Summer is here! We will be having a break from the office yet also have a very exciting design job to look into. Live Loud Girl Stays is our own three bedroom home on the Dutch coast. A place to go to in our school holidays. A place to rent out to who ever wants to experience the true Live Loud Girl style.
Where we can have a say in how things look around the house, we do. Believe us, we do. So when functionality meets design, which is one of Dyson’s core values, we are all ears and want to know all about it.
