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!

fail better

Today we went to the information day at ArtEZ in Zwolle. Such a beautiful building, inspiring people and so much useful information for Sam to make his future education choice. In love with the quote in their brochure and on the blue bag he received:

Ever tried
Ever failed
No matter
Try again
Fail again
Fail better

(Samuel Beckett)

A beautiful quote about developing yourself.

Last week we had such a lovely stay in Sweden: visiting family, exploring Gripsholms Castle with its beautiful tile fireplaces, enjoying the Vasa musem with the kids and falling in love with Stockholm!
And like always buying interior magazines in a local bookshop.
Wishing to go back some day for some interior design shopping :)

our house (for sale!)

Since one month our house is for sale. In order to make pictures to publish it on Funda, I changed our interior. So no more black painted moustache on the wall, a more ordinary interior plan for our furniture and actually getting rid of our personal touch. It felt like the first step in saying goodbye to our home.

Today I made some pictures still reflecting our personal touch. For pictures of the house itself you can visit Funda.

Hoping someone will fall in love with our house, the neighbourhood and Zutphen. Like we did nine years ago.

counting my blessings on sunday

A lovely week in which:
* the kids went to school again; spending our holiday together was lovely and passed too fast, also enjoying our holiday so much because of letting go the routine of daily life and spending time together;
* last friday the car and tent trailer were brought back home safely, after our car broke down very shortly after we left our campingsite, including the inspiring interior magazines IDEAT, MILK decoration and AVIVRE and the XXL shopper I bought;
* we enjoyed a BBQ with the kids on the indian summer evening this saturday; and
* I bought this RAAF cushion #inlove :)

blog breathing

Blogging is sharing my inspiration and beautiful things in life. But sometimes or perhaps even for some months there is less inspiration. Fortunately there are allways beautiful things and people in my life. 

Today I checked and deleted more than 30 blogs from my 'inspiring blogs'-list. Because they posted no blogposts since (more than) one year (or because they recently started their blog on another blogadress in which case I loved to add the new adress :))

But I don't want to quit my blog. Actually it feels so nice, so lovely, so worthwhile, so me and something to breath new life into!

Today I made some pictures of our interior for a magazine. Nice publicity while we are selling our house. But it feels empty after cleaning up and removing all things 'unnecessary' for the online presentation. Feeling the urge to share a styled home for inspiration: a beautiful house in a former garage in Den Bosch inhabited by Studio Boot published in the june edition of VT Wonen
Love this interior, the PHE furniture, the lovely moldavian carpets, the combination of basic and bright colors, the enormous industrial space and the eclectic styling!

holiday colors

Enjoying our holiday in the south of France. Counting our blessings while time flies. Enjoying the blue see, the blue sky and spending quality time together.
Feeling blue time passes so fast.
