The Milan design week has just come to an end and we are very happy that we could visit it once again. We traded in office mornings and dates with our laptops for wandering the streets of the design and fashion capital of Italy. Spending a week here, spotting trends, seeing so many installations and speaking to suppliers got us so inspired that we can’t wait to start creating again ourselves.
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.
I have had a profound love for any Eames design for as long as I can remember. That explains how my Eames Lounge Chair , the first piece of design furniture I bought for myself, always takes up the best place in our living room. After quite some years of also happily using Vitra products in our styling, we were invited to come to the source: The Vitra Campus so in Weil am Rhein, Switzerland.
Whilst our installations are a bit on the back burner due to the summer holiday, our creativity is on full speed.
The best thing about having a break from our very fun yet intense styling jobs is that there is more time for visiting stores abroad, sucking up every little bit of inspiration we come across and meeting other creatives.
