Are you a LOVER or a WARRIOR ?

Are you a lover or a warrior... necklaces in black or white with a leather strap by Love warriors.... My heart goes to the warrior... because of the black, because of the word warrior as it fits the  free spirit mood I feel since I was a kid. Or maybe it's good to be a true warrior and face my fear of birds by wearing the bird skull, that stands for trusting your instinct, which is something I always do and always strongly believe in! But the white necklace represents my love for the light, the summer and a soft summer breeze.

 There’s also the yin & yang in the black & the white.
White stands for peace, cleansing, illumination, purity,
innocence and the highest understanding.
White is affiliated with the planets mercury & the moon.
Employ the color white for :
cleansing, establishing order, illumination & clarity.
White’s mantra is : ‘I am illumined’
text via Love warriors

The warrior has brought her keepsakes from the battlefield :
a black horn tusk held forever by silver,
a tiny bird skull trophy to remind her to always trust her instincts,
~ & a feather that helps her find her way home.
She’s proud to be a warrior,
proclaims it on a silver amulet.

Blog crush | Musta Ovi and the house building project

I recently discovered  Finnish blog Musta Ovi which I think means Black door. On her blog Maja, a thirty something Art director as she discribes herself, is documenting the process of building a new house combining Scandinavian simplicity with a Loft style. Add a bit of industrial touches and you have my own interior, which is in my opinion the best of both worlds. What do you think?

I really enjoy how she is showing the progress on every detail, from moodboards to inspiration pictures, to pictures from building materials on the raw concrete and unfinished floors, just how like it! Meanwhile she also finds time to show some DIY projects on her blog. I hope she will leave some concrete exposed to create a true Loft style and I can't wait to see the end result.

A white home in the Provence | fashion designer John Rocha's oase

Let me explain some more about where I found that amazing white patio, which now has become the main inspiration for my new outdoors master plan | Can I just call it like that again, like I did some years ago here: The Masterplan | ;)

It is part of the garden of the home of fashion designer John Rocha in the South of France in the Provence. An amazing white villa with huge open doors that bring you right into the garden, I guess they live outside all summer!

I love the combination of whites and bamboo, and the fire pot. Something I definitely would love all three at my own patio.... Maybe I am thinking to big, 'Dream big dreams' is a quote Obama wrote on a girls notebook when meeting a Dutch school class. I love that quote, recently used it in a presentation, and I love to dream big dreams. After all every change in our homes start with some inspiration... an idea ... a dream :)

So right now I am off to find fences and some beautiful tiles, preferably of concrete and matching my vtwonen floor inside. If you have any suggestions for me I love to hear them!  Next week more garden inspiration....

Mobilia Amsterdam | Design & concrete

Mobilia Living, located at Utrechtsestraat in the center of Amsterdam, recently renovated their three-storey building, and I simply love the new and fresh look. Floors are styled with affordable design and beautiful classics, from furniture and lighting to accessories by famous designers to emerging talent.

I even found some recognisable walls, well almost...
Just like at my home the original concrete wall is left bare with a 'dyed' framework. Definitely worth visiting when planning your next trip to Amsterdam. More pictures can be found at my Amsterdam city guide Amsterdam Next
