Being a coffee enthusiast ánd an interior stylists gives me ample opportunity to make sure my coffee break does not only satisfy my caffeine craving, it also pleases my eyes. Call us fanatics, but drinking from a certain cup and making the whole counter esthetically look good just makes us very happy.
On a recent sourcing trip we came across some beautiful items that will make our morning coffee breaks a treat for the brain and mind. Even though we are very aware that the terrazzo look was on trend a few years ago, we still love this pot. It gives my counter a vintage feel together with an old cup that I bought on a market in France.
Like with our installations we love to mix it up. Using items with some heritage and combining them with something new can create another feel. Even though these changes are small, it just makes our coffee moments a little bit better then they already were.
We are working on a secret project that we want to share with you. Just keep in between us, don’t tell anyone just yet…
Since a very long time we have been big fans of Beni Ourain rugs. These rugs have originally been created by Berber people in order to keep them warm in the Atlas Mountains. Nowadays they are handwoven in the exact the same way, from untreated wool. That’s why every rug is unique and special.
On our blog you might have seen these rugs in our installations. That is how we met the lovely Maison Saadah and started working together.
Lucky us! We were asked by Type Hype to write a chapter in their Type Hype stories. A range of photo shoots starring their products around the world that tells their beautiful tale.
For the packaging alone it is worth to order from Type Hype. This creative letters and numbers brand offers a range of products which are all designed in Berlin and crafted in Germany. Their distinctive collection of graphic cushion covers is what got us. We are cuddly cushion addicts and we especially like the fact that we can have a similar design on the sofa to what the boys will have in their room. So when we ordered, we sneaked in some items for the grown ups.
Remember when the interior trend was all about monochrome, playful black and white prints and geometric designs? Although we are big fans, on the Design Week in Milan there is no getting around the fact that earthy tones are the new theme in town.
