A new look for my electric fireplace | Dimplex Spring update

A new look for my electric fireplace | Dimplex Spring update

No need to tell you how much I enjoyed my electric fire place over the last months and seeing the many questions and dm's I received on social media you loved my diy project in the living as much as I do. For those wondering what kind of fireplace I installed, there is some more info further in this post. With a week of heavy snowfall and all frozen and white outside, the illusion of fire and the coziness the Dimplex flames made of pure water vapour and LED light gave, was even more how I imagined this little fire point to function.

New lamps and colours by Faina

Twice a year during the Winter and Summer solstice, days with powerful terrestrial and solar energy, Faina renews its collection. Victoria Yakusha: “We follow the Sun and begin our new cycle with it. Solstice is a time of regrowth and renewal” In many cultures the Winter Solstice was associated with the natural beginning of the year honoured by festivals and rituals. A sacred living fire and light are traditional symbols of celebrations reinterpreted by Faina in modern lighting.

3 brutalist altar trays by X + L

Earlier I showed you the work of x+l , you might remember their inspirational design in black & brass or the exhibition at Tokyo gallery 'Objet d'art'
The Amsterdam based studio consists of just the two founders, Xander Vervoort and Leon van Boxtel. working closely together with artisan friends enables them to maintain the very personal view that is x+l. They both embrace the imperfect and the irregularity in the products: being able to see the human touch gives it an extra.

Wabi Sabi & more interiors by Axel Vervoordt | Coffee table books

If I would ever have had the opportunity to build my own house, it would consist of two separate and identical homes connected by a large entry... one house would be decorated dark and moody and the other one at the opposite of the hall, light and airy!

Styling with Coffee table books | New Mags online store

Styling with Coffee table books | New Mags online store

If, like me, you love to style corners in your home, a number of beautiful coffee table books cannot be missed. Some books here at home are favourites and are always on my small bronze table in the living room. They are the perfect basis for a number of objects that I like to look at or use often, a candle, a lamp, beautiful ceramics. Everyone one of us has a number of favourite objects to put on the coffee table and combined with books an instant atmosphere is created in the whole room.
