Love the ceiling, the windows, the tables, the bench, the carpet, the accessories, the pillows, the prints, the....
Actually love this whole bright, lovely and eclectic styling and interior.

It has almost been two month since I have posted my last blogpost. I didn't have any intention to have a blogbreak, but it just happened. No special reason or perhaps because we decided to sell our house and I spent a lot of time cleaning and getting rid of things we didn't use for years. Visiting the thrift shop to deliver stuff instead of buying things. Besides my job and running the family :))
Still some painting on my to-do list, but after that we are ready. Not just for selling the house, but also for a new future step ahead which feels so lovely!
Apparently I just needed some time off, but I have missed blogging. Starting today with some happy, sunny pictures I shared on Pinterest. Expressing my mood, feelings and the lots of blessings I count.

I love doll houses and not the sweet ones only appriorate for girls, just like Ruffled Snob of Pirates and Peonies does.
We have a black chalkboard painted wooden Amsterdam Canal House in the living room, a large old doll house also painted black on the outside and white on the inside in Pip and Floor's bedroom and a small cardboard house from Ferm Living with 4 departments, just like the pear house by Rock & Pebbel.
Love this original house, but four doll houses seems a bit exaggerated :)
By the way Rock & Pebble also sells an apple house. And recently I bought such lovely doll house furniture at IKEA like a miniature Klippan bench and Lack cupboard and table.

Last sunday we visited the Pinned Up exhibition of Marcel Wanders at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Especially loving his basic designs, realizing I own some of his designs because of his collaborations with Randstad, my former employer, and some because I had a crush on his timeless designs myself.
Go visit his exhibition at the Stedelijk until june 15 yourself!

Looking back on such a nice Easter weekend with my love: having dinner at Het Koelhuis on friday evening, visiting and falling in love with Delft, enjoying sun and laziness at Whoosah Scheveningen, lunch at Dudok The Haque, Easter breakfast at Kek Delft, having a drink outside at the Molenpad, Prinsengracht Amsterdam after visiting Pinned Up by Marcel Wanders at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam (more about that later in a new post :)).
Realizing I didn't take as much pictures as I intended to, because I just wanted to enjoy and capture the moments together.
Feeling so blessed! Hoping you have had a nice Easter weekend too!

IXXI design is a great concept to change your wall and interior in an instant. On the IXXI-site you can pick and choose from their continiously changing image bank and special collection or design your own IXXI by using your own picture(s). Making a collage, an enlargement or a pixel-ixxi consisting of square cards connected by x's and i's.
I really enjoyed designing my personal IXXI eye-catcher. Using a picture of a painting bought in Beiing and Pip's wooden china girl. It has a special place in our living room, but it will be on Pip's room in the future. Thnx to the easy way to just move it to another wall without leaving behind ugly wholes.

Everyday while travelling to work I pass the Havenkwartier in Deventer. An industrial harbour area which is being rebuilt into a urban district for living, working and culture.
Recently they built the first of four different mini-hotels alongside the harbour, the Lucy Cube. The Lucy Cube is an artwork consisting of a white cube placed on top of an old black sand hopper and with a great white interior.
I could see this great design from my office but never drove by to actually see it. But yesterday I did!
It is really beautiful and it must be a great experience to sleep in there after having dinner at Dok H2O.
It makes me very curious what the other three designs of this Lucy in the Sky-project will look like!
Knowing I will visit this area and its wonderfull streetart more often.
