Now that temperatures are souring in the Middle East, we have started to pack our bags to escape the heat. Another long summer holiday is on our door step, another climate waiting for us back home.
Where we have been wearing the same very light gear the last few weeks, we will need to think in shoes, long pants and sweaters again. With our new sneakers from Alex & Alexa are ready to travel. Although Dutch summers can be beautifully warm, there is always the chance of some chilly days with rain. And we love it!
The Live Loud Girl team will all be enjoying a European break filled with the necessary Dutch treats and French croissants. Yet before you start worrying that we will be bored for the coming nine (!) weeks, we would like to share what’s happening behind the scenes because our summer has never been so jam packed.
On the blog we will be sharing a high dose of summer vibes from some of our favorite Instagram inspirators.
Work wise we are packed with an amazing project in Saudi Arabia: the interior styling of a home with thirteen rooms that are waiting to be transformed.
When in Europe, shop like the Europeans. For this project we will start sourcing and searching for the perfect (vintage and new) items in Holland. Let us know if you have any tips of shops we should not miss…
You won’t even notice that we are away as we will keep you in the loop all through the coming two months. Make sure you subscribe to the blog to not miss out on any posts and follow us on Instagram and Stories.
Hopefully we will be inspiring (and entertaining) you this summer. We are looking forward to hearing from you from wherever you might be this summer!
We are spending a lot (!) of hours inside at the moment. With the sun flaming and the aircon blazing, the boys are catching up on their reading when its just too hot to handle out there.
To make their room a bit more comfortable, we brought in two beautiful floor cushions from Little Connoisseur. The perfect thrown for lounging kids. The cotton cushions have such nice details like a golden exposed zip and a genuine leather adornment that can even be customized. Not a big surprise that our cushions say: PLAY and LOUD. And then we haven’t even mentioned the packaging… Get ready to be surprised!
We are really into our blues at the moment which says nothing about our mood. It’s just so nice to bring in different items and let them work together to create some magic. The spontaneous combinations are almost always the best.
We are counting the days to get to a cooler climate but we don’t need any sympathy because for now we are very comfy on our cushions!
I know we are not the only ones out there with a stationary fetish. Although we do nearly everything digitally, we often nostalgically look back on the days when we were still carrying around an agenda and a note book. And since those moments are rare, we want it to be gorgeous.
We came across the Swedish design brand Mini Empire. With a range of some beautifully illustrated paper ware, they made our heart skip a beat. Their products are very refined, detailed yet with a humorous and edgy feel so that they work for styling nurseries, kids rooms and for the adults too.
Lucky for all of us they do more then paper ware alone. Mini Empire features a range of playful toys, quirky textile and funky kitchen ware.
On January 26th 2014, Linda decided that she would not let any non-existing knowledge about blogging get in her way of sharing styling inspiration and her love for design.
Today, three years down the line, we are happy that Linda posted that first blog post (which makes us cringe a bit). In fact, today Live Loud Girl consists of over 230 blog posts and 2283 Instagram posts starring numerous beautiful projects that make us proud.
That first post brought Live Loud Girl to where we are today.
