It has been a long and happy summer break but it is good to be back home.
One of the highlights for me was taking my boys to New York City, the place where we lived before we came to Dubai. It is the city I moved to with my husband and a baby, the city where my youngest was born and the city that inspired me so much that I decided to follow my heart and get into interior styling. So you can imagine how special this holiday was.
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.
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!
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…
