We are all spending much more time at home than we would normally do (and want). Yet in this whole ‘making the most of our house-arrest’ situation, we decided to spread some interior inspiration with quick home updates. We are not talking about big make overs that require us to go out to the shops of course. We mean some easy alterations with things we either already have at home or that we can order online. And the latter ties in with our shout out to all small businesses out there that can really use a boost right now.
There used to be one corner in the kitchen that you would never see on my blog or Instagram account. Not a messy closet or an unorganised office, but the kitchen corner with our water dispenser. As we can’t drink from the tap here yet do take hydration very serious, that 20 liter water bottle was just a part of our day to day life. For boiling water we used an old fashioned kettle. Not an eye sore perse, yet a kettle that I would always put in the kitchen cabinet after use. So for me, as a stylist and a clean countertop activist, the Quooker is one of those items from my kitchen dreams
We are always up for a challenge. So when asked to furnish a two bedroom hotel apartment with a capped budget and a limited time frame, we thought: Yeah! Let’s do this. Taking on projects for which we are in charge of from start to finish is what we do best. And although we love working with unique items that we often order from abroad, statement pieces and Scandinavian Design, we are capable of keeping it local and light.
We have been working around to clock to get my new business up and running. Yet, believe it or not, there has not been an upgrade with @fronteriors in my own house yet. Typical right? It was time to make my own order to enable me to upgrade my existing IKEA BESTA cabinet. Because first of all, I was dying to finally bring those gorgeous cane doors into my living room. But I also wanted to see if it is really as easy as we say it is. There was only one way to test my own product (and relationship…). And that was by asking my dear husband (aka @LiveLoudBoy) to take on this project.
