Over the last few months I have written several times about my bathroom dreams and the 'wow' factor I am looking for. Renovating my home and finding beautiful concrete walls under layers of wallpaper and the use of large amounts of white paint really helped me to refine my taste over the last few years and transform my home in what it is today.
I am quite good in sticking to my plans of creating a bathroom that fits the rest of my home, with a bit of an industrial vibe and selected Scandinavian design. It will take some time before I start renovating my bathroom.... there is still the patio to finish first, but I made a little start.
Bol.com is one of the largest online stores in the Netherlands where you can find almost everything you can think off. Their home department offers a great selection of furniture, home accessories, textiles and many more.
When theyasked me to chose my favourite products from the 'Bol Wonen' (Bol Home) collection, I thought it was a great moment to upgrade my bathroom accessories. I chose a set of timeless black minimal Scandinavian design products by Danish Menu and an industrial looking mirror by Dutchbone.
The New Norm Bath collection is designed by architects Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn, of NORM Architects. Mirror 'attractif' is made out of steal and has a sturdy bolt, adding an industrial look to your home.

After last years amazing installation in collaboration with Mendo | COS X Mendo | I was really curious to experience this years Cos' installation at Milan designweekby Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen of Brooklyn based duo Snarkitecturewho changed Spazio Erbe into an immersive translucent cave.
The installation involved thousands of strips layered white fabric hanging from the ceiling to the floor. The simplistic concept reflects the COS ethos and design philosophy and evoked a sense of relaxation and tranquillity, I loved it so much I didn't regret to visit the exhibition twice and tried out some video making ourselves.
MINDCRAFT15 the exhibition curated by GamFratesi at Chiostro Minore di San Simpliciano in Milan this year got a special mention at the Milano Design Awards for the extraordinary visual impact, generated from an essential but courageous project, that creates a dialogue in harmony with the unique and suggestive context.
Absolutely one of the most beautiful exhibitions of Milan design week, the yearly festival for design lovers that I visited this last week: 5 days of design, sun, food and friends and lots of inspiration that I hope to share with you on the blog. Have a look at the MINDCRAFT website for more information about the curated designers like Louise Campbell, Ole Jensen and more.
Last week I showed you some spring inspiration using the latest items of the new Couleur Locale collection, did you love those pictures as much as I do?
Natural colours are great to add a beautiful touch to your home and adding texture make your home look even more exciting. I love those unexpected corners with different layers and unique items from far away countries. Cushions you just need to touch, beautiful ceramics and some black and white photography to add some contrast.
The Ceramic is Wonkiware and for sale in the storesin Antwerp and Knokke. The blanket will be also available in the webstore any time soon and is handmade in Kenia.
