Now that temperatures are souring in the Middle East, we have started to pack our bags to escape the heat. Another long summer holiday is on our door step, another climate waiting for us back home.
Where we have been wearing the same very light gear the last few weeks, we will need to think in shoes, long pants and sweaters again. With our new sneakers from Alex & Alexa are ready to travel. Although Dutch summers can be beautifully warm, there is always the chance of some chilly days with rain. And we love it!
We are spending a lot (!) of hours inside at the moment. With the sun flaming and the aircon blazing, the boys are catching up on their reading when its just too hot to handle out there.
To make their room a bit more comfortable, we brought in two beautiful floor cushions from Little Connoisseur. The perfect thrown for lounging kids. The cotton cushions have such nice details like a golden exposed zip and a genuine leather adornment that can even be customized. Not a big surprise that our cushions say: PLAY and LOUD. And then we haven’t even mentioned the packaging… Get ready to be surprised!
Ready, set, action!
We were so excited and honored to do our first styling job of a video shoot. We were asked to take care of the styling for the setting of the online campagne for the launch of Jotun’s Wonderwall and Royal Velvet paint range starring beauty blogger @raniafawazz.
Jotun is a brand that we often work with (and for). Yet this being a video shoot did make things a bit more thrilling then usual. For weeks our mind was set on getting the perfect items and props together.
My home is always constant state of change. When I see a product I love, I will make sure there is a place for it, even if this means rearranging the whole house. Don’t be put off though, most of the time it is easy and always rewarding. It’s just a matter of letting colors compliment each other and mixing in the new in with the old(er).
We got our hands on some beautiful blankets from the latest Kate & Kate Home collection.
The Picnic Stripe is made from one of nature’s most luxurious fibres. This pure Alpaca blanket is incredibly soft. We love the green and navy combination, making it an item that parents might just keep for themselves.
The 100% cotton knitted Harlequin classic is in one of our favorite color combinations, blush and green. This magic duo has been on trend for a long time now and is not going anywhere just yet. It is the perfect blanket for summer babies or in our case, for cool airconditioned evenings.
Both beauties are designed in Australia as part of the Arent&Pyke range for for Kate & Kate Home, and now a very pretty part of my interior.
The blankets bring a pop of color into my living room where I have decided to hang the Lappalainen mobile. This elegant accessory starred in our collaborative shoot and we just can’t get enough of this delicate design.
This time around there was very little shuffling. With a few small touches a serene corner was created. Al it requires is a big coffee, a magazine and some feet put up. Mine preferably…
