Maria Lies illustration


These illustrations are from the talented Maria Lies based in the Netherlands. Her style is playful and cute and it makes you smile inside. This beautiful 'window' on the wall in the First or Second store is also her work. We get a lot of compliments and are still very very happy with it! So thank you Maria Lies :)

Spotted the brand Hem


I dont't know about you, but we love this new designs from the new brand Hem! The designs contain a certain Scandinavian lightness what we really like about it. The photography looks absolutely beautiful too, very refreshing and well styled.

Hem teams up with a lot of great designers that create a new generation of original furniture and interior accessories. They make the greatest designs and the nice thing is it doesn't cost a fortune.

Because one size does not always fit all... They have created online customization tools that allow you to be the designer. Browse and see the entire collection online or customize your own.. :)

a guest room


The photographs of this guest room from Cassie, a graphic designer and photo stylist based in Saint Louis, are beautiful... The styling is simple but so pretty and fresh looking. The room actually is very tiny but all the whites and the 'less is more' styling makes it feel more spacious.

The corner with the picture and the side table with the pine needles on the magazines is our absolute favorite. Would love to be a guest in this room...

Geometric home Shelves


We love the look of geometrical details in a home! With this gorgeous shelf set from Geometric Home you can easily dress up your walls!

The shelves can be arranged many different ways and you can get them in different colors. We like them when you can still see the natural beauty of the wood but you can also choose a color that matches your home or of course when you're in a creative mood, do it yourself.. :)

Black and white interior


We really like these beautiful pictures from Rzemiosło Architektoniczne. With a black and white interior you have to make the right choices because you don't want it to look boring. This floor is a perfect example of how to add some warmth and character to your home without using colors. It's timeless and looks absolutely beautiful.

a special dinner at Studio Pistache


We had a crazy busy week last week but with lots of nice things scheduled. It started last friday with a special dinner at STUDIO PISTACHE in Amsterdam by the Blogger tour team. The industrial and open but private atmosphere is very nice for a pop-up dinner, a post-dinner event or to meet up with business associates during the day. STUDIO PISTACHE provides catering for breakfast, lunch, dinner and pizza from the pizzeria next door.

The space is amazing, every detail and every corner breaths out a sense of style. The perfect place to meet with an inspiring group op creative people. The food by Lady Grey catering was delicious and matched the place perfectly. On-line and off-line combined at a perfect evening and space.

Thank you Desiree, Allan, Igor, Susanna, Anna, Linda, Gerard and Elena for the great evening!
