STORY TILES FIEP WESTENDORP

fiep westendorpLiving in a rental can be challenging. We love our houses yet if we would need to name one thing that we miss here, it would be some vintage Dutch roots.

Using vintage elements in your home is one of the core values of Live Loud Girl as we feel that a home should tell the story of your life.

Now for a Dutchie, there is nothing more nostalgic then a Delft Blue pottery tile on the wall. Probably all our Dutch grannies had them at home.
Another big part of our Dutch childhood are the illustrations of Fiep Westendorp. Three generations (and counting) have grown up with her books. Our kids are reading still these books today and loving them.

The girls behind Story Tiles recognised the longing for a piece of nostalgia and started making miniature pieces of art based on these traditional Dutch tiles. They are just given a new life with colorful and humorous images. Each tile tells its own story, every piece is unique.
And in honor of illustrator Fiep’s 100th anniversary, they have brought the tiles and illustrations together. Fieps Party collection is a fantastic range of wall art for vintage fans like us.

Art, in what ever form or shape, is always an investment for your home. It is something that makes you smile or stand still for a moment. When you fall in love with art, there is no getting around it. It is something that can tell your story.
We fell in love with this little square of nostalgia as it brings back memories. Memories of our childhood that we want to cherish… and pass on.
