Whether it is for a photo shoot or an installation, we are always on the look out for new products to work with. We have quite a few well known go-to sites we use and shops we visit. Yet we also very much enjoy using unique products made by enthusiastic creatives that are possibly driving their business from their kitchen table.
Last month we made quite an exciting announcement regarding a new business adventure: fronteriors. Together with Kath Hawkes (aka @houseofhawkes ) we decided that after years, of having a great collaborative working relationship, we could bring it up a notch and start designing and making furniture. It is an absolute dream from my bucket list and has been an entrepreneurial endeavor since the idea first came up over coffee in January of this year.
You might have seen it on my Instagram stories already yet due to the high enthusiasm and adrenalin levels, we also want to share this news on the blog. I have started a new business venture with friend and fellow interior stylist, Kath, better known as @houseofhawkes. Kath and I met at an industry event a few years ago and have developed a great working relationship and friendship from the start. Even though we are in the same line of business, we have proven that sharing is caring. Being open and constructive towards one another has given us both the opportunity to grow.
Some big news! We bought a coastal holiday home in The Netherlands. Well actually it is a tiny villa on a holiday home park. Last Tuesday we received the keys to our new holiday home which is located in Zeeland, on the Dutch coast. Although we have gotten very spoiled in Dubai with the warm sea and the many beach days a year, going to a Dutch beach is still incredible. After 8 years living as expats, we are excited to own our place again in Holland.
