MAISON SAADAH X LIVE LOUD GIRL BENI OURAIN RUGS

Beni ourain rugA few months ago we gave you a little sneek peak into our collaboration with Maison Saadah, developing a collection of ‘Live Loud Girl’ rugs. A dream come true for us as we have been huge fans of these Moroccan Beni Ourain hand made rugs.
Maison Saadah is an online store that came to life in 2015 when they started bringing the   famous Beni Ourain Rugs to the UAE. These wool rugs are hand made in the
mountains of Morocco and traditionally feature a black pattern woven into a cream foreground.
Classic Beni Ourain rugs are well known and appreciated for their specific
patterns, dense weave and immense softness due to the use of  high quality un-dyed wool.
The collaboration between Maison Saadah and Live Loud Girl is all about bringing a breath of fresh air to the home decor scene with its more modern design and use of bold colours while preserving the traditional weaving techniques and the unique look and feel of these iconic rugs.
The process started with discussions accompanied by cups of coffee. We had all the freedom we wanted in terms of color, weave and patterns yet wanted to stay true to the core values rugs and Live Loud Girl signature. Slowly but surely we had three designs on the table. We found inspiration in palm trees, waves, wind and not to forget that touch of pink and our loved grid. Seeing the final drawings of the 3 rugs and then having the actual rugs here under our feet is surreal.
For the shoot we wanted to really let the rugs do all the talking. The bold colors compliment the composed and layed-back vibe that these three rugs give a room.
We can honestly say that we are honored and proud. Honored to have been asked by Maison Saadah to go on this adventure together. Proud to have done our first product development.
These babies are available online so you can have a real Maison Saadah  ♥ Live Loud Girl Beni Ourain Rug in your home too!

Jotun is a brand that we often work with (and for). Yet this being a video shoot did make things a bit more thrilling then usual. For weeks our mind was set on getting the perfect items and props together.

BLANKET CRUSHING – KATE & KATE HOME

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…
