My interior

  
My bedroom is quit simple. In the room I have a bed, two wooden nightstands which I painted ( in a simple design), two sanseveria’s and that’s it! 

I am a fan of less is more, but I wanted a splash of color,  and something beautiful to look at when  I get up in the morning. because I live in The Netherlands and the grey colored days are on their way back, so this is a sunny solution.

The sunny solution I found, was a half long maxi skirt my mum used to wear. I liked it so much that she gave it to me a while ago. It’s been hanging on the front of my Ikea clothes rack for a while so it was the first thing I saw there.

Anyway, last week I decided to box up my spring / summer clothes and hang up my autumn / winter clothes and that left me with the skirt..

To beautiful and sunny to put in a box.. 

So I took my beautiful, sunny skirt with gorgeous colorful floral print, took a white clothinghanger and hung it up on my bedroom wall. A beautiful piece of artwork in my bedroom to wake up to, I love it.

A day in Kleve – Germany

  
Last week I made a trip to Kleve in Germany, just over the boarder from The Netherlands, near Nijmegen.

Lovely sunny day, 30 degrees, quiet town and some gorgeous buildings. Thought I would buy something for the house or my autumn / winter closet, but no.

However I did have a lovely lunch at PIAS, pasta penne with mushrooms, courgette and spinach. They also have some fun artwork on their menucards. I had my lunch underneath a beautiful Indian styled parasol, I would love to have a parasol like that in my garden next year.

   

Travel: Postcards from Paris

  

A while ago, my boyfriend and me decided to go to Paris, out of the blue, and there we went on our 6 hours drive!

We parked the car in an underground parking lot, and found a hotel near Quartier Latin.

When we woke up though and looked outside, we discovered a big antique market right above the parking lot! Great surprise!

They had amazing stuff! I could have walked around for hours..
But there was more to see in Paris, and we were only there for a weekend then.
I behaved and just got a couple of items I really, really liked. One of the items was a set of postcards I chose out of the hundreds of postcards that were there.

And I really like the combination, interesting, different and simple in black and white.

My interior: Eames and Kwantum

  
Eames chair with my selfmade cushion. I bought the fabric at Kwantum. I love the simple black and white geometric print.

I made this cushion yesterday, 2 cushions actually. I had been searching online for two months, could not find any cushions like this, although they were in all the magazines and interiorblogs. 

But then I came across the black and white geometric print on fabric at Kwantum. Very happy with it, made it as quick as possible and very happy with what I’ve got!
