Bloom – Baby products that are both functional and stylish!


A recent study in the Netherlands shows that 82% of parents are annoyed by the sheer inexhaustible amount of necessary baby-products that fill the house with the arrival of a baby. Most of the time these products are made of sensible plastics that are produced to last forever, but not to look pretty. Especially those parents who spent a lot of time decorating their home to a certain standard.

Funny enough, especially the dads out there would like to see products that are both functional and appealing. 50% of them say they think there is room for improvement there. Bloom, a company founded by 4 fathers, agrees. They design baby products that target trend- and style-conscious parents with a range of furniture that adheres to both quality and an attractive package. The products have been very popular in the USA and Canada for quite some time now. Many Hollywood stars like Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, the Kardashians and Orlando Bloom (what’s in a name) are fans. But the products are taking other parts of the world by storm too.

Classic touch: zebra print rugs


Last week I placed a bid on a zebra print rug on Marktplaats, the Dutch equivalent of eBay. In fact; eBay owns Marktplaats. I bought heaps of stuff from there already and always advice clients to check the many many ads for great finds and pieces.

The seller of the rug only had a slightly odd picture up, but after he accepted my 30 euro bid I decided to go for it. I now obviously hope it’s the gorgeous classy rug I envision. A few images to get your creative juices flowing.

I love how the rug brings the whole room together in this picture.

In this picture the zebra print proves to be a great alternative for a kelim, almost bringing an African flair to a classic room.

Here the graphic pattern of the zebra stripes accentuates the timeless design pieces in this room.

I absolutely love the vintage and bohemian feel of this room. In this case the (fake!) zebras rug is shaped like the hide would be. That’s a great sofa too. Oh, and that chair…. wow… great room!

Check out my zebra moodboard on Pinterest.

Oh, and if you want to go crafty on your home, here’s a wonderfully simple trick to create your own zebra print rug!

 

Daybeds to escape those everlasting winter blues


Not sure what the weather is like in your neck of the woods but here it’s, pardon my French, crap. It’s been snowing wet sleet-like nonsense for a couple of days now, where we usually would have been enjoying spring already. Needless to say, with this type of weather getting out of bed is just that little bit harder. So with the weekend coming up, and no sun on the horizon, what better time to get inspired by …..daybeds?
