What is the difference between a house and a home? A space and a room? What makes a random area in your house a sanctuary you want to escape to?
At the Milan Design Week we literally kept walking into a new trend that opened our eyes. It is a theme that is all about how connecting with people is more important then ever. ‘Everything is connected’ was not only the title of Jotun‘s design exhibition, we also felt this proposition at brands like IKEA, Carl Hansen and Son, Vitra and many more.
Organising a collaborative shoot requires time and creativity. Of the first one we have too little, of the second one too much. Yet we managed to clear our agendas to try and create a setting that is original, inventive and inspirational. With no boundaries, no restrictions, ourselves as our client, a beautiful collection of small business brands and an empty garage as our studio, our imagination was set free.
Rugs are a total must have in our home. They add structure, warmth and soul to a space. The best thing about rugs is that it is such an easy way to change the vibe of a room.
It is no secret that we love to work with Rozenkelim as they have an amazing selection of distressed carpets and berbers. We have used them in our installations of living rooms, bedrooms, playrooms and nurseries like the custom made hot pink Beni Ouarain rug and the grid berber in this girls bedroom. And also in our own living room you can find a vintage rug from Rozenkelim. The darker tones go beautifully with the overall white interior.
During our Spring break we had the chance to go on a tropical adventure with the family. For this exciting experience I had teamed up with Destination Zanzibar and FlyDubai to make this all possible. Zanzibar had been high on my travel wish list for a long time as this lush and beachy corner of the world has all the right ingredients for us as a family.
With FlyDubai it is just a six hour direct flight from Dubai. Where my boys were enjoying hours of great entertainment on a screen, we sat back and relaxed with a magazine and a drink. There is no better way to start your holiday.
