WoonQ | Velvet dining chairs



Over the years a lot of metal furniture slipped into my home, it is a material I really love although it can feel a bit cold. My new kitchen in beautiful smoked oak and black countertop is one of my new favourite corners, the smoked oak brings warmth to the room, just like the walls painted with a chalky paint that almost feels like velvet. Next to the beautiful kitchen and soft walls I am still on the look for different materials and fabrics to bring even more warmth into the space.

When coming across the new Dutch online platform WoonQ, I had a look at the different chairs for the dining table in my kitchen.

A new rug for my home | Tisca Olbia Collection


Working on Domotex for the last three editions together with our team of international bloggers brought us to Transylvania and the district of Cisnădie, a town near Sibiu. During the first edition of the fair we all kind of fell in love with Tisca and started making plans on how to work together. This last Summer we visited the factory and the Tisca team showed us the beautiful surroundings, including the famous castle of Dracula.

Fascinated by ceramics and the work of Annemiek Boots


I have always been fascinated by ceramics and with a clay atelier very close to my home I am even more intrigued to try out working with clay one day myself and see if I have the patience to actually make something.

GSI Ceramica | Color Elements | Inspiration for your bathroom


Lately I wrote a lot about my home makeover, and talked about paint, floors, kitchens and countertops. I have always loved working on my home. Two areas though, I have neglected for years; the bathroom and separate toilet. As I won’t really move houses, I love the area I live and changed my home to fit all my needs, I won’t design a full bathroom any time soon.

Curious as I am to learn more about the making of, I love to visit factories therefore, and always looking for possibilities, I’d love to see if re-doing the bathroom and toilet I have, would be a possibility some day. I have numerous bathroom boards on Pinterest and over the years I added different bathrooms from brands I have worked with and design I find inspiring, one can keep dreaming right!

For today’s blog post I teamed up with Italian GSI Ceramica and love to tell you a bit about their history and give you a glimpse into their collection. GSI Ceramica pro­duces san­i­tary, wash­basins, bidet, wc and ded­i­cated ac­ces­sories in the heart of the Italian ceramic tradition.
