We admire so many creative entrepreneurs. Therefore we love to invite them as a Guest on the Blog and are always very honored if they make the time for it. We ask them questions about their business, their inspiration and their home. Not only to inspire you, also to give you an insight in what’s behind that endless scroll of beautifully curated photos on their account: a lot of hard work. An account that is always on the list to check when we are in need of inspiration ourselves is @woodchuck. We have been fans since they started three years ago. And now that I am in the furniture business myself, I can admire their craftsmanship even more. Woodchuck combines design with functionality. Their aesthetic is clean, minimal yet warm. Not only do we love their beautiful furniture, the photography of their home and installations is just magical.
One account that I always check during a coffee break is @bartsboekje. Maartje’s Dutch humor on her Instagram Stories makes us laugh. Her realistic way of photography makes us drool. Her destinations want us to pack our bags and go. Yet most inspiring is her drive for building this business from scratch. Like many entrepreneurs we admire, Maartje did not follow a straight road to become a travel influencer. She discovered her passion and talent whilst doing different jobs and created her own space along the way. To get a better understanding about how @bartsboekje got where it is today, we asked Maartje about her journey.
Our Guest on the blog today is artist and stylist Emilia Ilke from Stockholm. She shares her stunning home – which was originally a school in the 50’s – with partner Frekar and son Igor (2,5 years). We fell in love with her home on her Instagram account @emiliailke, yet getting to know her a bit better, we started to love her art, use of material and colors just as much. And as true fans, we are very happy to have her as our guest.
Australia is a super family-friendly travel destination. The scenery is next level impressive and you can enjoy the city perks and activities one day and a go for a surf or an outdoor adventure the next. Are you planning a trip to this end of the globe? Anouk, founder of @makehistoryco has done it and loved it.
