A black Studio in San Francisco

Hello on this first Monday morning in December and sorry the silence this last week, as you might have guessed I was in lost in my creative bubble and busy starting up my Cologne project for Januari at IMM. Days seemed to have way to little hours at the moment, but I did made some new pictures after making my living a bit decent again this morning as it kind of looked exploded this last week.

I secretly liked this creative bubble, but it was time to unpack some of the cute new purchases I got myself for this winter.
I love this time of the year and, with a couch full of blankets and a rug or two to keep my feet warm, it can't be dark and cozy enough for me inside now winter is here, probably why I choose to show this beautiful black studio in San Francisco, found on Remodelista on the blog today.

immspired - the bloggers trend show | IMM 2017


It's not every day you get the change to build your dream home on 100 square meters but for the next edition of IMM Cologne I am actually given carte blanche to design my own booth at one of the world’s largest trade shows for kitchens and interiors. Invited by imm cologne 2017 Holly Becker from decor8 and myself will create our very personal style in two separate “Inspiration Spaces” during the trade show.

With the motto “immspired – the bloggers’ trend show”, we will share our creativity and joy of experimenting at our individual “inspiration spaces”. Can you believe how excited I am and the lack of sleep I am already experimenting after strolling through hundreds of websites.... It is so much fun to dream away, get to know unknown and new brands and handpick items from all the beautiful brands I have always wanted to work with along with some of those I have been loving and working with in the past on the blog and during my travels.

My space will be located at the Pure segment where imm cologne presents premium brands and international lifestyle and I will focus on the living area, while Holly will design a dedicated space at the international event LivingKitchen. Stay tuned for some moodboards in the coming weeks on the blog and keep your fingers crossed for me that all the brands I selected will be happy to join me in this adventure.

Imm cologne will take place from Monday 20 to Sunday 22 and I would love you to come and visit us during the public days which are from Friday, January 20 to Sunday, January 22 2017 // Opening hours: Mon. to Sat. 8AM to 7PM // Sun 8AM to 6PM

The banner above will take you to a special area for Vosgesparis readers where you can purchase a special ticket of 8 Euro for the entrance on the private visitor days including free train rides. Enjoy and see you in Cologne!

Frites Atelier Amsterdam by Sergio Herman

Frites is one of Hollands most eaten snacks, being close to Belgium we got a lot of really good places to have a quick fried snack and it is pretty common to walk through town with a big fries with mayonaise. Most of the places where we buy them are not really outstanding interior wise. Sergio Herman,  owner of three Michelin stars in his former family restaurant Oud Sluis in Sluis thought it was about time to have a beautiful restaurant to make fries available for everyone.

In order to serve fries in a really beautiful place Piet Boon who also designed Sergio's beautiful restaurant The Jane in Antwerp was asked to design the Frites atelier Amsterdam. After searching for the perfect potato the first Frietes Atelier Amsterdam opened it's doors in The Hague and Utrecht, Antwerpen and the Amsterdam flagship store will follow soon... I can't wait because after tasting the food Sergio prepared I can imagine I have to prepare for the best fries ever.
