No need to say I really enjoyed this years Maison et Objet and my visit to Paris. It was my second time visiting in January and I must say I also really love this edition. Normally I visited in September when the fair coincides with Paris Design week. In January it is time for Deco […]

A new still life and candle by Mad et Len

Some time ago I changed a few things in my living. I took of the metal shelves and moved them to a corner near my kitchen which I previously used for coates. I really love the new layout in this corner and it gives me some more storage space, have a look here: An update […]

Leclaireur Herold – A Paris must visit

It was not that I was not familiar with the Leclaireur stores, when in Paris I often visited the store in the Marais at Rue de Sévigné. But it was by accident when walking in Rue Herold, two men stepped out of an enormous door and I got a glimpse of a beautiful entrance… only […]

Gardeco as seen at Maison & Objet 2024

When strolling over Maison & Objet last month it was the large Gardeco stand that caught my eye. The light and bright space was filled with objects, something that always catches my attention. Minimalist columns and tables were perfectly styled with the different collections. Belgian-based Gardeco is a company, offering handcrafted pieces from around the […]

Bourse de Commerce & L’origine des choses

A weekly visit to one of the Amsterdam musea for a drawing class was part of my school program when attending a school for Art Direction with the subject of advertising drawing among others. Lately I do not visit musea that much as I can’t be bothered with the long lines of tourists in Amsterdam. […]

Night Time in a Palace | Domotex 2024

The exhibition “Night Time in a Palace” by carpet designer Lila Valadan transported us into a mysterious, surreal world straight out of the tales from the thousand and one nights during Domotex. Guided through different rooms the different designs by the Persian brand were unveiled. I really loved the room with the bells hanging from […]

Mood boards and carpets by Amini Milan | Domotex 2024

Born from refined and meticulous research on raw materials and the world of colour, comes a new collection of rugs in organic wool by Amini Carpets. The stand of the Milan based company really stood out for me at Domotex and I loved to learn more about the carpets and the beautiful mood boards the […]

An abandoned Monastery in Antwerp

You really loved the visualization of the Japanese Pavilion by Parisian based architect Kacper Niezabitowski, and today another project of his: A monastery and remodel of the destroyed Carmelite monastery in Antwerp, Belgium. The baroque monastery was founded in the XVII century. It was abandoned before the war and destroyed after the Second World War. […]
