A fun dinner for 40 and a blogger event

- dutchbone collection -
Nothing better than a dinner with like minded people I'd say! Last month me and fellow bloggers Wendy, Anki and Barbara were invited to host our own table at a dinner organised by Zuiver and Loods5 for 40 women, all working in Interior, and with the idea to discover on how blogs and brands can work together.

Every single blogger had her own table for 10 and it was amazing to see how well stylists of both stores together had captured each others taste and the atmosphere of our blogs. While Wendy's grey table was decorated overal white with some soft tones,  Zilverblauw's table was filled with color and BoulevardB's with lots of natural and wooden elements. My table was a 4 meter long black and sturdy one, filled with lots of black, concrete, candles and some glass elements.

It was a fun night with 4 courses, after each course the group of 10 went over to another table in order to meet all 4 of us. In between we went through the Zuiver & Dutchbone showroom where the dinner found place and listened to an presentation by trend watcher Truus Dokter. Dutchbone is available at Loods5 and other locations.

A few days before the dinner I attended a nice event by Fonq and Zuiver at Fonq headquarters with presentations by Kirsten Jassies about blogging and social media, and Caroline of Zuiver, showing 3 us different trends. 
Scandinavian, using wood,white and blue tones. Copper-mania: mixing copper with different materials such as glas and wood.
For the third trend Caroline showed us some pictures from the Dutchbone collection where everything they love with a story comes together. This collection, in my eyes, really fits the 'back to nature' trend we are seeing for some time, where traveling, collecting and crafting take an important place.

We were taken on a little tour through the showroom and a video presentation by Fonq and after a delicious lunch we each tried to capture one of the trends in a still life later on that afternoon... there were only a few minutes and things left, but embracing Scandinavian minimalism I did a speed styling with this small table by Zuiver.

Inspiration for your workspace | STRING WORKS

Remember I showed you the wonderful styled String shelf system styled by Lotta Agaton earlier this year |String furniture styled by Lotta Agaton|

Today String sent me these pictures of the latest addition to the collection: 'String works' designed by Björn Dahlström and Anna von Schewen. With the freestanding shelf you can easily create a workspace corner at home or at the office. The height adjustable table can be used both as a desk or standing table.

Are you looking for some new ways to decorate your Christmas table this year.... or do you have another event coming up and looking for a new party theme.... Paper is the new chic!

Catherine, a French blogger I met this autumn, has a passion for paper. And while I was on blogtour in my own town this last october she stayed at my home together with my friend Christine of Mechant Design
. When I got back home I found a wonderful gift on my table! Catherine left me a box filled with different placements she designed.

This week she launched her web store
E magasin - Polly Papier where you can choose from nine different themes for small dinners with friends or order especially tailored sets for your events... Good luck Catherine !

Marie Olsson Nylander home in Höganäs

Seeing the work of Marie Olsen Nylander always brings a smile on my face, I showed some of her work before and a video of one of her former homes almost 2 years ago. This is her dream home, a villa with 12 rooms in the village she grew up. The villa has been the home of famous residents, grocery stores, offices and consulates before Marie and her family moved in for a long renovation that was documented on television. Compared to Marie's former homes this home has more industrial details, the upper floor Marie uses for her work. 

Thank you beautiful power woman to have opened up your home once more.
