Ay Illuminate ... goes Italy

Lamp designed by Nelson Sepulveda - Big round cushions by Ay Lin Heinen

When I saw this picture with the Ay Illuminate lamp (Z1 in bamboo and cotton) next to the bed.... I nearly took off the lamp in my kitchen to hang it in my bedroom. But reminding a chat I recently had with Karine I didn't. Karine stayed at my place for the Meet the blogger event earlier this month and we did a photoshoot at my home... (here in Dutch)

So there was lots of moving with tables and things. When making pictures in my kitchen, we both agreed on how great my own lamp (the smaller version of this one, on the picture below) looks in my kitchen and how beautiful  the natural materials of it, the bamboo and cotton, blend with the crispy white walls and the concrete in my home.

So I am thinking on adding some more natural materials, as the round cushions, to my home as it really adds a soft element to it..... what do you think??? 
  

On the picture above - made by the very sweet and lovely Mark Eden Schooley ;) who kindly let me use these pictures - two of my favorite items off all time... the Ghost sofa by my Italian design hero Paola Navone (note the Koushi lamp made by Mark Eden Schooley in her gorgeous Parisian apartment) and yet another lamp by Nelson Sepulveda (the smaller Z4) like the one in my kitchen.
 


These pictures are all made in the Italian home of a Dutch couple who asked The team of Ay Illuminate (Ay Lin Heinen, Neslon Sepulveda and Mark Eden Schooley) to add a touch of nature to their holiday home and of course they did a great job by bringing their own designed lamps, plaids and cushions. All made by local craftsmen in different countries around the world.

Wow - lovely space. Very calming to look at. It almost has a "world" feel to it while still remaining very edited.

Calm and simple - and the niches beside the bed are inspired.

I want that last one too! Beautiful! Love that simple and natural vibe in this hause. And love concrete and all the white in your space. You really have that special feeling. Would love someone like that to step into our hause and wisper me what to do. I feel so stucked sometimes :). And all that boys around me do not help very much :).

Yes, I think some round cushions in natural material would look wonderful in your bedroom. ( And so would your lamp, but you need to keep it in the kitchen! :) Maybe you can make another one for the bedroom? )

Love all the photos you are showing from this home.

Happy weekend, my friend!
