Bolia - lookbook 2015

After our summer vacation I had a lot of news, magazine- and 
bloginspiration to catch up
One of my must seens was the beautiful new collection 
of Danish furniture chain Bolia.com
presented in their stunning and very stylish 2015 lookbook

Just loved the new workbox (with its embossed veneer surface)
 the beaver chairs (now available as barstool and office chair), 
the Ruhr dining table and the heavy floor lamp (with its food made of concrete) 
the stunning beautiful sofa series (óóh that new Aura sofa)
  and so much more... 

an amazing location, beautiful styling and a lot of things to put on my wishlist ;-) 
see more here and be inspired!

ps.  today Bolia.com has launched their international web shop so now
 it's possible to order and have it delivered in whole Europe!



beautiful whites,  some brown tones and a subtle touch of black

the beautiful simplicity, the wonderful location

yesterday I visited the Showup fair at this amazing location
 the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam
Showup is a new trade show for Home & Gift 
where we can admire new collections from leading brands 
but also discover the work of young talent
and it was such fun!
just loved the amazing and cosy atmosphere
and the perfect combination of getting inspired by the products and the styling
and meeting retailers, suppliers and other bloggers 

Showup is open until the 25th of augustus 18.00 and accessible for retailers
 and bloggers after filling out the registration form 
 next edition will be 1/2- february 2015... save the date!

today summer vacation is officially over,  
it's time to go back to school!
 I really enjoyed the last holiday days with my family
at the dutch south-coast (Zeeland)  
it was such fun and we visited a lot of nice spots!
 One of the villages we came along was Veere
where we admired this amazing expostion in a formal church...

Just loved this (im-)perfect location with its large windows, 
rough plastered and brick walls, marbled and natural stone floors,
 high ceilings and ofcourse all the beautiful items of the
 "Confluence" art project by Elis Vermeulen and her guest artists

This exposition consists different "rooms" decorated 
with wooden beds covered by beautiful hand-felted fleeces
 complemented with stunning (tatoo) photography on the walls
and so much more inspiring things to see and to do!
- oooh we loved these great swings :-) 

beautiful simplicity...
Don't miss it if  you're in the area
see and read more about the project here
and have a fantastic new week!

sometimes little details really make the difference
combined with a black cage light, some prints 
another changingmood in my bedroom...

 hope you all had a great weekend!
I am still in this "in-between" period of working- and holidaymood
(this week we will leave a few days at the dutch coast before school starts again next monday) 
and I am still catching up my magazines and blogposts... (so much inspiration!)

 starting this new week with this minimalistic and 
clean workspace decorated by Sarah van Peteghem (cocolapinedesign.com

just loved this new styling project (an amazing penthouse for sale) 
 that she did for the fantastic frank office in Berlin and 
where for she used design furniture and accesories
so beautiful and inspiring...

shoplove - la maison pernoise

pics elvs

as I told you in my earlier post we have visited a lot of 
"must sees" during our holiday in provence
 ofcourse we also did some shopping and 
 I just had to go to the Concept store 'La Maison Pernoise'
of sweet Lau de Casalil and her team
 where we were welcomed with a big smile and a nice cup of coffee.

The store (opened july 2013)  is located in a beautiful industrial 
building (a former atelier of an upholsterer) in the middle
 of the Provence at Pernes la Fontaines 
and I was so pleasantly surprised  by their beautiful 
eclectic selection of furniture , home accesories (oooh these lamps and prints),
 fashion, magazines, kids products and much more. 

Just loved the inspiring styled corners, great moodboards

 and the combination of beautiful new products 

with the warm but raw industrial atmosphere 

 beautiful imperfection as Lau said... 

definitely worth a visit if you are in the area of Avignon
 to be inspired, to find original accesories/ideas to decorate your home
or to follow one of the different workshops that Lau organizes!
