Punk chic green and a Qazqa lamp

Over the summer I worked together with Anki from Zilverblauw on an advertising campaign for lighting brand Qazqa. She asked me and five other bloggers to choose different items from my own home, that would tell something about me and about what I love most, and to choose a lamp from the collection that matched the style. We did a styling and shoot at my home with the items, that is now on the Qazqa website. And this weekend I finally made some pictures of the lamp in my own home, the lamp can be used in different ways and I personally love the light shining upward adding a soft touch to the room at night.

I think autumn is being beautiful this year! With low temperatures and a few really cold moments only so far, I am really enjoying the trees changing into beautiful brown and red and with the green in my garden looking even greener now I thought it was a good moment to also add some green and brown to my home for a change. Last year I wrote a blogpost about brown at home | Is brown the new black? | and although it is not a colour I would use for a large piece of furniture, I do like it in small doses and in combination with black, and in this case some green also.

I used a small poster out of LMBRJK's book I bought and I really enjoyed looking for pictures and colours that suited this forest image.. Being still in love with copper I also added some copper clothes hangers. The brown leather bag was given to my son when he was little and is handmade in Sardinia, a beautiful and treasured souvenir from the past, the lamp is the Rytel black.

Inspiration from vtwonen | multifunctional bedrooms

One of the 'best' covers of the year if you ask me! With the bedroom as the main theme for an article in the latest vtwonen, stylist Cleo Scheulderman created four different and multifunctional bedrooms. It might be having the same black & white photos at home this room feels so comfortable to me but there is more.... what really caught my eye is the paneling behind the bed creating a cozy spot for different frames, pictures and other collections.

When talking with Cleo, I found out that she designed the headboard together with Dutch company Combitex whith who she works often on furniture for her styling projects. The pannel above includes a small bench, making the headboard multifunctional and creating an extra spot to sit or to have your stuff at hand. The size of the headboard is about 120cm high and 8cm deep you can make it as large as you need. The bench is made out of pine wood and painted white. What is your favourite room of these four?
