Starting this summer with sort of a big deal. We were approached by ZARA to shoot for their new SPRING SUMMER 18 campaign – The Sun and Sand editorial.
Key elements in the briefing were wild, natural and a summer environment with details like stone, wood and sand. My boys are wearing the Zara boys new collection which with their terracotta shades and soft cotton and linen materials are perfect for outdoor summer adventures.
A collaborative shoot is one of our own styling initiatives to highlight products and brands we love. It allows us to be innovative and creative guided by our own enthusiasm and Dutch spontaneity. We believe in the strength of combining different brands, products and players, from well known companies to upcoming creatives.
The starting point for this collaborative shoot was this gorgeous Krethaus Nido bed. The combination of natural alder wood, the high headboard and the clever boxes at the end make it a perfect bed for growing kids. The bed can be used for toddlers, and when removing the boxes, its perfect for bigger kids.
After the last two settings, a nursery and a girls’ room, we wanted to portray a gender neutral setting which could be an inspiration for a shared room.
By balancing out the color pallet and bringing in playful elements, it can work both ways making it really playful and unique.
If someone has been on our ‘inspirator-to-must-check-before-we-start-the-day’ list for a long time it is the blogger, master of the shelfies and creative that we know as ChloeUberkid
With her stunning photography this mother of five gives us a chance to get a peek into her daily life with her fun filled home and her gorgeous kids. Not only the imagery makes us smile, we love her captions which are so witty and relatable.
When we asked her to be our Guest on the Blog, she had literally just bought a new house. She thought she would be settled in 48 hours, we (all of us experiences nomads) thought it would take a bit longer… Nevertheless, her new home is amazing and all set up now so that Chloe can give us an exclusive look around. We asked her about her favorite room in the house and her go-to brands and shops that allow her to style like no one else.
It is mid term break, it is the weekend, it is all fun and games at our house. Having two boys is high energy, laugh hard, play hard.
For this energetic season I ordered some and sportively fun items from Bobo Choses. An old time favorite brand since the day my kids were born. This Barcelona based brand captures the magical, passionate look and language of children – as they put it themselves. We love the fun designs and subtle playful colors. It puts a smile on everyones face in this house. Next to the fashion items they created some additional interior wannahaves of which the pennant which carries out the message ” sometimes you win, and sometimes you learn” absolutely belongs to the favourites of this Legend collection.
