We are back home! Back to normal life, routine, school lunches and sport bags. Yet to be honest, after 12 weeks of holiday, it’s kinda nice to be behind our computers again with our trusted home brewed coffee.
As we mentioned to you earlier, we weren’t bored over the last few weeks. Because next to having quality time with family and friends, we paid our favorite shops back home a visit, for inspiration and sourcing as we are in de midst of a few exciting projects.
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…
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.
We are hooked on the new AW16 launch of Design Letters. You know by now that we have a weak spot for their clean ABC collection so this new product was happily received. HOOK2 is a personal hook with typography designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1937 from their Vintage collection.
You can imagine these hooks in a hallway or bathroom with someones initial on it or creating a word like COAT or BATH. Or maybe use it as a silent way to tell your children something by hanging TIDY UP in the playroom. Although Jack and Sam don’t need a reminder of this, we put up FUN and they loved it.
The clever thing is that underneath the big round hook is a hidden small hook. That means, that the hook looks good on the wall, even when in use. Practical and clean, just the way we like it. Are you hooked? Check them out on the Design Letters now!
