carpet crush

pic: Rene van der Hulst
Today I was browsing through the last edition of 101 woonideeen, a dutch interior magazine which unfortunately doesn't exist anymore, when my attention was captured by a picture of such a colorful carpet
I had an instant crush on this great carpet designed by Petra Janssen from Studio Boot as part of the Dutch Landscapes collection
It really fits the interior styling of their own house I wrote about in an earlier blogpost and its so beautiful! It's definitely on my I-wish list!

'jij bent de liefste'

Today it has been exactly four weeks since we have moved to our new home. So special that a house feels like home from day one when you share it with the people you love.
After moving all the things that were necessary and decorating the kids rooms, we are now making plans for changing our living room.
While making a moodboard on Pinterest for our plans, I fell in love with a pin with the lovely sentence  'jij bent de liefste' [you're the sweetest] made by Nelleke | Langius Design. When she saw my pin shared on Facebook she made one for our new house.
I'm so happy with this cute present!

PS. the black and white cards on the snapshots are bought at ABCD kaarten. I like the lovely freckles.

rock that wall

This weekend, just like the last two was all about painting. In order to prepare the children's rooms for our removal in february.
Creating an extra room, a white base for Sam's room and some colorful walls for the other kids besides some white ones. Like bright yellow and silver for the girls and green for Floor who asked for a football field on his wall.
After painting a square on his wall with magnetic paint his wall became "football field-green".
Today I designed the actual field with MT-masking tape. It's not finished yet, because we have to think about the curved lines on the field. But according to Floor it is already "cool".

I wished I had made pictures with my Nikon instead of my iPhone, because of the quality of the pictures. But I just wanted to share it anyway :)

Last summer I discovered √Āvivre, a great French interior design magazine, in a local bookstore in France. I fell for the cover with a picture of this inspiring house designed by NU architectuuratelier in Ghent, Belgium.
Or actually a picture of their beautiful house, studio and guest room built within the walls of an industrial building. With much design, recycling, containers, carpets and a wonderful open space, which is both a park, play and work area. A great place to live.
More pictures (also of the interior of this great home) and more information on ArchDaily.

HAPPY new year tradition

Just like last year we started this year with a citytrip. Not the two of us in a foreign city this time, but with the kids in Rotterdam. Enjoying a sunny day on friday at the Maasvlakte, visiting and having lunch at Futureland and visiting the great beach at Maasvlakte 2. Saturday it was a more cloudy and rainy day, but still a lovely one. I loved the Fenix Food Factory on Katendrecht, traveling with the watertaxi to the Leuve harbour, exploring the new Markthal in the city center and visiting the Cube House on the Overblaak.
Feels like a nice new tradition to start a new year with a citytrip :)

Wishing you lots of love and fun in 2015!

EINDHOVEN in Utrecht

Last saturday I went to the bloggerslunch at EINDHOVEN in Utrecht. A great concept store and platform for new designers. For talent from the Dutch Design Academy, the KHU in Utrecht or actually for every other (inter)national emerging designer living in Holland.
It was a nice meeting with the EINDHOVEN team, like the founders and four of their young designers Stephan Siepermann, Danielle van Lunteren, Andrius Sta and Tim van der Weerd. So great to feel the enthousiasm and passion for design in the stories of these creative people. Sharing their inspiration, concepts and products.
Besides selling beautiful products it is a laid-back place in the center of Utrecht to have a tasteful Moyee coffee or a cup of tea while meeting other design lovers.
It was also so nice to meet other bloggers, while visiting the bloggersevent with Nelleke from Langius Design. Afterwards brainstorming about new blog ideas together.
Thnx EINDHOVEN for so much inspiration!
