Shibori Dyeing with Indigo

Bloesem Class Recap | Shibori Dyeing with Arounna of Bookhou

The last week of August was dedicated to shibori dyeing with Arounna from Bookhou. Arounna and John reside in Canada but were here for a week's stay along with 5 classes - 3 shibori classes and 2 other water coloring classes. 

The artistic couple took this chance to explore Singapore and do abit of painting too. We loved following their journey on Arounna's instagram account. They painted in the park and noticed all kinds of beautiful flora and fauna which we might have taken for granted. 

Anyway, back to the shibori class.. it went swimmingly! With the shibori print being one of the hottest trends on the market (we've been seeing alot of it online for awhile now), it was fun seeing the students explore different techniques and coming up with different patterns. Arounna brought along some samples she had created previously for reference which really helped inspire everyone.

We also learned that the indigo dye is really powerful. Everyone left looking very contented but also looking abit dead with their blue finger tips! At least everyone had a great time!

Kristina Dam

Bloesem Living| Kristina Dam's interior collection is the perfect mix of art and functionality

Walking the line between art and functional design is Kristina Dam. Her interior collection is just breath taking, integrating pieces of art into living spaces seamlessly. One great example is the mirror mirror. Use it as a mirror by flipping the center piece from side to side or as in art piece. Beautiful either way. 

Another outstanding piece is the magazine rack. The simple yet functional design allows you to both store magazines and hold a cup of coffee or your bowl of morning yoghurt. The use of marble and wood is also a home run.

View her entire interior collection here, as well as her other graphic design work and of course her shop!

Coisa for the cold

Bloesem Living | Coisa scarves for that chilly time of the year
It's that time of the year, and it's getting chilly fast! (For most of the world that is.. Singapore not so much though it starts raining non-stop). These scarves from Coisa are the perfect accessory for the cold weather. Knitted with exclusive yarns from Italy, all Coisa's scarves come in a very limited quantity. We have one of the scarves from Coisa's previous collection and oh, how soft it is! Cosy and chic, perfect for that time of the year when you're all bundled up you can barely see anything else you put on under that coat.
