I want it all

In my previous post I showed you some of my inspiration for our new kitchen. I came across this super hilarious and beautiful cinematic lightbox from BXX light a while ago on the internet. But when I saw it in action last weekend I knew that I have to get it, someday.
They come with a hefty pricetag but I totally think it’s worth it.

But the real question is… wich one do you choose?
Because….. I want it all :-)




We’re moving!

You guys, we have some drastic changes coming up. We are moving!
For several reasons actually, it’s quite fast because we’ve only lived here for five years now. But hey, you won’t hear me complaining. I mean: a whole new house to style and decorate?!

Ever since we made the decision I’ve been browsing the web constantly for inspiration and to my own surprise the most pictures I’ve collected are for the kitchen. I kind of want the feeling like I’ve just entered one of my favourite coffee-and-pie (or cookies/cupcakes for that matter) place. Concrete floors, tiles, a small bar, industrial lamps, old wooden doors..
I think that when we mix old and new materials we can create a cool and cozy kitchen.

It will probably be a while before we move out but that gives me more time to look for the style we want.

Now, coffee and cake anyone?

PS: My blog has a brand new look, do you like it?

101 Ideas for fall

Okay. It took me a while but it’s time to let go of summer and welcome fall.
I’m always struggling this thime of year, simply because I live for the long, light days of spring and summer. When the evening starts to fall earlier and earlier I can’t help feeling a bit down. But at the same time I love to shift my wardrobe and interior into fall.

And boy, there is so much good stuff going on this fall when it comes to home trends. I love to see that more budget chains are doing a great job with new collections that are well-matched with more expensive and trendsetting brands. When you mix and match lower priced items with more expensive classic eyecatchers you can create your own affordable style.

Speaking of a lovely new collection (that’s also well priced), meet the 101 Woon-collectie at Leen Bakker from 101 Woonideeën.
These images are an instant mood changer and made me embrace fall to the fullest. I mean, what’s not to love about it?
You can find the collection online at Leen Bakker and in stores.









A postcard from far, far away

I wasn’t sure how to name this post since it’s been a very long time ago that I showed up here. A lot of things happened the last few months, good and bad and it’s been a crazy ride.
My love and passion for interiors and home styling did not change for one single moment -you guys know me a little bit by now- but I just couldn’t find the energy to write a post.
I didn’t even took a single picture around the house, shame on me!

But I’m here now after a very relaxing holiday and I’m slowly starting over again.

So tell me, how was your holiday?

Bedroom inspiration

It’s been a while since I posted an update of our bedroom.
Everything is pretty much the same, ofcourse I did move a few things around (you know me).
I still love our black walls, but after 4,5 years they need some repairing here and there.
Black is a very calming and cozy ‘colour’ for your bedroom. The only downside is that it stains very easily.

After browsing some of my favourite blogs a while ago I saw that the lovely Nina from Stylizimo painted her black walls with fresh teal.
It’s actually the same colour that we have in our living room but when I saw this, my heart made a litte jump. I’m excited to try a fresh, light new colour now!

Do you like it?


In bed with Fred

No no, I’m not actually in bed with Fred. I found this super cute and funny (what’s in a name?) australian brand online and it’s so different than all the famous brands out there, très refreshing.
The colours, the prints, and even the names, I love it!

I’m especially fond of the paper, scissors, ROCK sheets and the cross my heart quilt. And pssst…. they ship internationally, yay!
So I hope Fred will come and sleep over soon :-)



Change is good

So yeah, I changed some things up in our girls room. Story of my life.

The cute wallstickers made place for these lovely prints. They’re actually postcards but I like them as walldecorations as well!
We’ve also been changing some things in our kitchen and I’m so excited about it. It’s not finished yet but I’ll show you the results when it’s done.

Have a lovely day!


All wrapped up

Easter is far behind us (time flies!) but this year the traditional easter brunch was at our place. I went completely overboard with the tablesetting in sweet pastels. So overboard that I didn’t take a single picture.

I did capture these little vases that I made with old jars (thank you baby girl) and some rope. Really simple, just wrap the rope tight around the vase, make sure you wrap a little over the beginning and the end of the rope and it won’t go anywhere.

This is also really fun to use when you’re hosting a summer barbeque or a high tea.
Do you like the results?


Inspired by Tas-Ka

Our entry is a quite small, straight space. I’d like to have it functional but also welcoming without too much decoration involved.
With a super handy but quite large Bugaboo our entry looked way too small.
So I sold our cabinet and I love how much space we’ve gotten in return.

But ofcourse I can’t leave things completely empty. First I like to start with a functional and cute coat rack. I love this house shaped rack from Tas-Ka.

How is your entry decorated?

Have a great weekend!
