We are happy to announce that we have some fabulous Guest on the Blog- contributors lined up for summer. We start off with Bloesem Design Blog, one of our inspirators from way back when. Enjoy!
As avid fans of travel and design, we at Studio Bloesem make every excuse to visit all our favourite stores while we are away. Today we’ll be sharing the top 5 stores that have caught our eyes and have definitely made it to our ‘must visit’ list the next time we are in their part of the world. From UK to Australia, we’ll slowly cross these stores off our list, but for now we’ll just ogle at them from the comfort of our own homes!
If you have the pleasure of living in their vicinity, make sure you pop in… but beware, you might pop out with a much lighter wallet!
We can honestly say that we have just successfully finished the biggest, most incredible adventure as Live Loud Girl.
We thank this project to our very first client who asked us to take care of the styling of her new home in Saudi Arabia. Although it is a neighboring country, we did have a few hurdles to take due to a very tight time line. From beginning to end we had just three months to take care of it.
For the sourcing we traveled to our home country, the Netherlands, as that is where we knew we would succeed in one go. This new house which contains seven rooms needed everything, from furniture to coffee table accessories. We wanted simple designed rooms, yet good for the eye. Scandinavian design was high on our client’s long shopping list, so were some boho pieces with a vintage feel. We crossed the entire country, searching for the perfect items to fill the empty container that was waiting to be shipped.
You might have noticed that we are quite big fans of Danish design brand HAY and IKEA from neighbouring country Sweden. Just last April we had the chance to visit their fantastic concept store at the Milan Design Week where we loved every product displayed.
In our room installations we often use their wall rings, like in the apartment, my boys room at home and in the Dreamy Metropolitan girls room.
On our Milanese adventure we were definitely on the look out for trends and new launches for ‘Bambini’.
Not only did we see our favorite go-to brands, we also got acquainted with a whole range of new-to-us players. And some of them made it directly to our ‘yes we would love to work with you’ list.
