Organising a collaborative shoot requires time and creativity. Of the first one we have too little, of the second one too much. Yet we managed to clear our agendas to try and create a setting that is original, inventive and inspirational. With no boundaries, no restrictions, ourselves as our client, a beautiful collection of small business brands and an empty garage as our studio, our imagination was set free.
Rugs are a total must have in our home. They add structure, warmth and soul to a space. The best thing about rugs is that it is such an easy way to change the vibe of a room.
It is no secret that we love to work with Rozenkelim as they have an amazing selection of distressed carpets and berbers. We have used them in our installations of living rooms, bedrooms, playrooms and nurseries like the custom made hot pink Beni Ouarain rug and the grid berber in this girls bedroom. And also in our own living room you can find a vintage rug from Rozenkelim. The darker tones go beautifully with the overall white interior.
It is not only our wall paper addiction that makes us want to constantly spice up the walls in the house, there are just so many fantastic designs out there that we just can not help ourselves and want to bring out the glue as often as possible.
The palm leaf wall paper in the boys room had to step aside for a new design from one of our wall paper friends These Walls. Remember the tiger design from the Jungalow Style shoot? And the Dots from the dreamy girls room? Well now These Walls has launched a fantastic new collection with the blue jungle being our absolute favorite.
You might have seen them come by in our previous installation and on our Instagram, we happen to love them a lot. The playmats from By Alex are not only comfortable, they are original, beautifully made and highly decorative.
