coffee and concrete

Coffee and concrete sounds like the perfect combination to me… Lavazza is one of my favorite brands and I loved to see this Lavazza  espresso maker. A conceptual version and a study project from Shmuel Linskm student at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Israel. I can think of some people, like me, who […]

So this is Christmas….

Some of the original walls in my home are concrete walls. They are thick and I had them covered in wall paper for years. I always loved this different, industrial feeling concrete walls give to a home but just recently discovered I had theme my self. So here is the finished wall in the Living. […]

Inspired by IKEA

Today some images from my hallway…. After I bought a new couch I had to change the living a bit and this little table ended up in the hall… I love to make little corners on it, with candles and frames. And display new books and magazines… Latest book one on here is ‘How they […]


Mikkili is a new webshop selling Scandinavian, Dutch and other design. The minute I saw these black cast iron candlesticks by Normann Copenhagen I was in love with them. They really look great in front of that little wall (Yes I finally finished painting and scrubbing the concrete) in the living room. They give a […]

Lazy day at home…

Do you remember last months post about The masterplan ? Well I am working on it…. not in my kitchen yet but in my living room! When wandering through HEMA, one of Hollands major all things basic stores! I found this with metal lamp and because I thought it would look good in front of […]

Make a wish… give away

I love to make my own presents so when friends of me got married I wanted to give them something special… Although they are living together for years I thought it was a nice idea to give them a ‘love‘ themed present….. I found four pictures, all with a love theme, at Ivy’s Etsy shop […]

How to add a touch of nature….

On facebook I saw her post about Norm Architects Copenhagen and as I looked through the mostly white houses on there I realized how much I love the combination of white walls, empty spaces and that little touch of nature most pictures showed…… Scroll down if you want to find out how to add a […]

Old tables and white chalk paint

While reading Christina’s post a Greige about a picture she keep seeing and saving, I had to think of the picture above. It is in my inspiration folder for some time and every time I see it, I keep looking at the details. The light in the picture, the old wall and the sanded table… […]
