from Berlin


I really love apartments with old elements,
 beautiful large windows with lot's of light, high ceilings, wooden floors
and decorated with stylish design furniture and acessorries,
creative materials and some fresh greens
this one in Berlin almost has it all...

# on my shelf - Cherry Blossom blog -

One of my favourite hashtags on instagram is the #onmyshelf one
just love to admire all these beautiful styled shelves
 (or whatever used... tables, cabinets, cupboard)
 but most of all the added personal touch 
gives us the idea getting to know each other a little bit...
and that is what attracts me most!

because it thought it would be fun to share and to be inspired 
by each other's creative ideas 
 I have asked some bloggers/IGers to share their "shelfies"
  accompanied by some words or a short story... 

one of the first foreign blogs I ever followed was the "Cherry Blossom blog"
A Norwegian blog filled with beautiful interior design (her bubble of inspiration), 
soft tones, art,  fashion, creative diy ideas, styling, music and photography
(I admit... I was very disappointed when she didn't post for a day)

this week sweet Veronika - founder of the Cherry Blossem blog 
shares hers...

My favourite shelf in my studio apartment is the all white classic String Pocket.
 I’ve had it for several years now, but I still think it is a favourite of mine. 
It works great to show off some favourite items, and I find myself changing the display quite often. 

These days I like to keep it quite airy, simple and minimalistic, with a hint of 
soft pink and white. A nice blend of Scandinavian designs. 
Some classics and some new.

I collect illustrations from the Danish artists collective Bob Noon, and this framed
 black and white named «Columbine» is illustrated by Lea Hebsgaard Andersen. 
I love their work and i think art pieces 
and illustrations make a home more personalized and «alive». 

The two Nappula candlesticks are a christmas gift from Finnish Design Shop
The pretty and oh sooo heavy sandstone box in the colour light rose is
 from this years beautiful autumn collection at Bolia.com

A couple of sweet, ceramic espresso cups with wooden saucers from Höganës
for my organic morning coffee. The classic Bumble, always puts a smile on my face, 
designed by danish cabinetmaker Hans Gustav Ehrenreich in 1969. 

A tiny green succulent to keep it fresh and green inside
 now that the seasons are changing. 

Notebooks, notebooks, notebooks.
 I am a succer for blank pages and I always buy new notebooks. 
I must have over a hundred… These ones are from HAY
On top of the pile of notebooks, a beautiful organic treasure, 
a 11200 year old coral from the deep sea in Norway, 
bought on a local marked a few years ago.  

Ps. Would you like to share your #shelf?? Feel free to join in.. and send me a mail!

kitchenlove





Really fell for this amazing family house (from 1908) in Danemark
furnished and decorated
 with a beautiful contrast in black and white 

Especially the (black) kitchen area really caught my eye
Oh.. Just love it as it is right now with the high ceiling, 
the lamp (FLOS), the stunning black floor, the cosy minimalistic atmosphere 
and its beautiful design furniture 
So pretty... 
see more of this house here and have a happy new week!

this week Susanne  - winner of the Dutch mom Blog talent award 
and founder of the inspiring blog "Suus loves" shares hers...


Susanne wrote me: 

On this shelf (in my bedroom) you can find my last purchases and gifts
First of all and very present is the "P" print. Our last name starts with the letter P 
and family is very important to me. My three men mean everything to me!

I bought the beautiful copper coloured glass boxes a little while ago 
at the Amsterdam Woonbeurs where I was on a quick shopping tour with 
Christine (house of C) and Elvera after joining a little styling event 
organized by the bloggerscafé/woonbeurs people.
I really like the simplicity of the boxes and they are perfect
 for decorative purposes and to show some of my beautiful stuff!
In the boxes you can see a paper ornament of house doctor -  love its beautiful shape -  
and in the little box there's a pink quartz.  I really believe in the power of gemstones. 

The "que le fuck" print, designed by Maaike Koster of the my deer artshop,  is smashing!
 it makes me chuckle...  it's a bit rebellious and I love that!!!
 It really makes me smile every time I see it ;-) 

The dots by Muuto are so beautiful...  I have them in three different sizes. 
Just love the texture of wood. In our home you can find a lot of wooden accessories 
combined  with white, pastel shades and a touch of black.

I also found the stunning black star (house doctor) at the woonbeurs while we 
did some prop shopping.   It reminds me of the very nice and inspiring afternoon
 that we spent together while creating a stilllife at the bloggerscafé/woonbeurs event
 (the star was actually meant to be a part of that stilllife).
During Christmastime, the star will get a nice spot in our living room!

On the photo below you can see an other shelf at my house. 
This one is in our living room where I created a little "autumn mood" corner. 
This branch is so beautiful! 
Normally I don't like colourfull details but in this case I loved the contrast 
of the  white background, the wooden door of the Cabinet 
and the red berries at the branch.
