Cork & Greens | IKEA Temporary

Just a few hundred meters after crossing the iconic bridge that connects Zona Tortona and the lively square of Porto Genova, IKEA opened IKEA Temporary. Behind the doors at Via Vigliano 18, a small courtyard revealed a first glimpse of the new collections and interpretations of the new IKEA kitchen line by designers such as Paola Navone. The 2025 kitchen was presented by students of TU Eindhoven and Lund university.

You might also remember I posted about the collaboration of IKEA and British designer Ilse Crawford who 
designed 30 products for the new IKEA Sinnerlig collection. In this temporary IKEA presentation the new collection was beautiful presented in combination with lots of greens. Even though Milan designweek is finished IKEA Temporary is still open I heard, I am not sure till when... if you know.. please do tell ;)

A Swedish apartment in Täby

Pictures from a show-home styled by Marie Ramse and Alicia Sjöström for JM agency in Täby, a small town fifteen kilometers north of Stockholm. The apartment is styled in different shades of gray and small bits of blue. Greens are used throughout the whole apartment and I love how the balcony feels like an extra room by using the same colours and lots of green.

Coffee and work at my favorite place | #WorkHappy

Being able to work from home is really great and I love the freedom that comes with it. I am definitely not a nine to five office job girl, instead I love to start my day by checking my emails and scrolling through my social media feed, all over breakfast at the kitchen table. Most days I either continue my day working from there, or I move to my home studio (which, by the way, is getting a little make-over at the moment, I’ll share some details on the blog when I’ve finished revamping it!)

I also often pop in to one of my favourite coffee spots downtown, either for a meeting, or just to have a break and to get out of the house. I’m lucky to live in a city that has lots of nice places to work from, and whenever I’m working out of the house I always see it as a chance to check out new places and to get a taste of the creative vibes.

This week I teamed up with HP & Intel who asked me to test their new product and take part in the #WorkHappy campaign, in order to promote the new Hp Stream x360. I took the opportunity to take this new device to a meeting with Italian photographer Silvia Falcone. Silvia and I recently did a fun project for vtwonen together, and we share the idea that a good cup of coffee is essential when trying to get some work done!

Seeing how we both love going for a stroll along the Eastern Docklands, we met up at the nearby Sissy Boy KNSM: a mini warehouse that sells furniture, home-ware, and clothing, not far from where I live. The coffee and juices are great, and with its location being just outside of the city centre it has a great local vibe and it’s never too busy to stay focused and to get work done.... not to mention the fact that I can easily do some grocery shopping on my way back home.

After catching up and drinking some coffee, we selected some pictures for an upcoming article we are working on. The HP Stream x360 is a new kind of notebook with Intel Inside®, is really lightweight, and with the 1TB cloud storage included for one year it has plenty of space to safely store all of my pictures.

With its size just a little smaller then an A4 sized paper, it has almost a tablet feel and my favourite thing about the laptop is its convertibility. This device can be bent 360º, which allows it to be converted from a notebook to a tablet, stand or tent mode. Perfect for either presentations, when watching videos, or simply to use it as a tablet.

Dutch Summary
Deze week mocht ik samenwerken met  HP & Intel om de nieuwste Hp Stream x360  te testen tijdens de #WorkHappy campaign. Een mooie gelegenheid om buitenshuis af te spreken en deze nieuwe notebook uit te proberen tijdens een meeting met de Italiaanse fotografe Silvia Falcone. Niet zo lang geleden hebben we samen al aan een project voor de vtwonen gewerkt, we houden beide van lekkere koffie, ik heb daar heel wat kopjes van nodig op een dag en tijdens onze gesprekken switchen we moeiteloos van Engels naar Italiaans.

Ik vind het leuk om buitenshuis te werken, op nieuwe plekken af te spreken voor een meeting en de creative sfeer te proeven in de Amsterdamse projecten die met grote snelheid overal op duiken. We spraken af in Sissy Boy op het KNSM eiland. Een gezellig klein waren huis met meubels, kleding en accessoires. Net buiten het centrum gelegen, is dit echt een rustige en inspirerende plek om koffie te drinken en te shoppen en voor beide lekker in de buurt. Er zijn zelfs er zijn nog een aantal winkels in de buurt waar je heerlijk kunt rondstruinen op zoek naar nieuwe dingen voor je huis.

Na even te hebben bijgeklets en een lekker kopje koffie te hebben gedronken hebben we wat foto's geselecteerd voor een volgend artikel. De HP Stream x360 is een nieuw soort notebook met Intel Inside®, net iets kleiner dan een A4tje en superlicht. De 1 jaar gratis bijgeleverde 1 TB OneDrive-opslag in de cloud is de perfecte plek  om veilig je foto's , video's en documenten op te slaan en te delen.  Het mooiste vind ik echter dat de laptop 360º kan buigen van notebook naar tablet en tent modes wat echt super makkelijk is bij het geven van presentaties of het kijken van tutorials.
