Natural mood and whites | because we do not need colour


It is something really personal of course ... The use of colour! But no colour for me please as I am totally happy living in an interior as the one above. It might be the cool wall or the use of my favorite couch | Ghost designed by Paola Navone for Gervasoni | or my all time favorite lamp | Z1 by Nelson Sepulveda for Ay Illuminate | but I love the neutral and calm atmosphere of this home shot by Hannah Lemholt.

She always shoots the most dreamy pictures for Love Warriors. And if I had a few thousand euro to save up or just to spent like that.... I would run to the nearest shop and buy the couch!! Just a normal one for my small living and not like all like the huge one Paola Navone has in her Parisian home: Parisian home of Paola Navone which comes pretty much to my dreamhome.

So no colours for me but I DO love a good amount of black and I love these picture of the home of
Elisabeth Heier who has the Ghost couch combined with a black table, I guess we have a bit of the same taste because in her really cool home I also noticed another favorite of mine... The koushi lamp by marc Eden Schooley

I guess both the sofa as these lamps are just a really good combination to bring some natural softness to a home... Would you go for it in your home?

A Dutch villa near the seaside | concrete and wood


This amazing home close to the sea, designed by Paul de Ruiter architects, offers the inhabitants lots of space. large expanses of glass result in maximum day lighting and the feeling in and outdoors are one space. i29 interior architects are responsible for the beautiful interior and created large surfaces of Pine wood through the whole house to connect the different areas.

DIY for your home | How to attach a moodboard to your wall





For many of you it may be clear, but believe me I get many emails with questions on where to find images like I used here: Inspire and even more on how to attache them to the wall. So if you sent me a email about this, you were not the only one wondering...  

Japanese masking tape is great to vary with and play around with in our homes! And I do still love it but for me personally the big masking tape hype is a bit over as I have made so many boards with them. I still love to use a little black tape to maybe attach one or two simple images to the wall. But with making large picture walls I am back to where it all started, a simple tape loop on the back.



If you are looking for cool pictures to print out have a look at these black & white pictures I collected of people. Or maybe you also like to add a few nice quotes like these and some light pictures like you find here Anyway follow your feeling and add what you love most. Then make little loops with masking tape as showed below. Stick them to the back of the picture and start creating your own moodboard.
If you print the pictures on A4 sized paper, try not to use paper that is too thin as you might see the tape shine through like you see at some on the pictures in the moodboard in this post (I used black tape there) Enjoy and keep sending me your moodboards!

New pictures of my studio | Something black & Industrial





I had my eyes on this little cabinet for ages... ever since it first appeared in one of the offices at my day job many years ago it was love at first sight. And now I finally could bring it home as it was not really used anymore.

Longing for summer beaches








It's holiday time! Off for a few weeks from my daily job.... I am really enjoying my time off, meeting people and eating outdoors in the sun a lot.... but still like always I kinda miss that wonderful feeling of beautiful beaches, sand and lots of sun somewhere in the south of Europe...

Summer holidays are just made for beach life!   
enjoy your weekend!
