Restored

Bloesem travel | Shop Stop: Restored in Amsterdam

Pre-visiting the store, we were the happy recipients of many of Restored's amazingly tempting newsletters and with a web-store full of eyecandy, how can you pass up a chance to see the actual store in person. So while we were in Amsterdam in March, we made our way over to see whether it was everything we imagined. It very much was.. and we hope the following images do it justice though we recommend visiting in person if you are ever in the area.

Find in the store a beautifully curated selection from many of  your favourite designers, from clothing to jewelry, ceramics to magazines.. and shoes of course, must not forget shoes.

The selection exhibited in the store window is tempting enough to get you to come in and browse around.

We've met our Matcha

Bloesem living | Preparing Matcha Tea

High on our list of places to visit is Japan. With all the amazing designs and just the culture you see online, the allure of Japan is undeniable. We already love Japanese food so we need no convincing to hop on the next plane out of Singapore and head over. Fortunately for us, we have contributors and friends who are generous enough to share bits of their journey with us! Recently, Adinda from Wolves Table headed to Japan and here is a little slice of her trip.

-

It's been two weeks since I came back from a 3 week trip to Japan. And Japan still has its powers over me. During my stay in Japan I ate and drank a lot of matcha and other tea related snacks, drinks and meals. I've always been a huge tea fan but my trip to Japan really thought me a lot about different kinds and flavors of tea and I experienced my first Japanese matcha tea ceremony. 

During my stay, I bought myself a chasen (a handmade bamboo whisk) and a lot's of pretty matcha-chawan's (Japanese tea bowls). Because: one can never have enough tea bowls, or anything Japanese and ceramic related (duh).

More Matcha this way..

Studio Roex

Bloesem living | Studio Roex furniture and product design

"Immediate acceptance of the presented objects is not the purpose of our work." Studio Roex presents to us pieces that make our minds work. Using familiar materials and objects and presenting them in a new and unconventional way. " We want to increase people's awareness of what they see, heightening their ability (and desire) to understand it."

A furniture and product design studio based in Amsterdam, Studio Roex's projects will definitely make you rethink the way you view the objects you see and use on a daily basis. Can this spoon I use to eat my cereal be just a food delivery system or can it be something else too? Hmm..

The Frame for the little exhibitions you create in your own home.

The amazing styling possibilities with a great collection of items.

Wool felt curtains..

For the little details in your home..

Out with the blacks and greys and in with the yellows, perfect for this heat wave we are experiencing in Singapore.

This article has been making it's rounds and it really has a point. A wardrobe full of clothes does not make dressing for work easy, but a uniform definitely does.

Healthy chocolate quinoa snack bars? Yes please.

Get lost in textures.

Final few spots to join us and make some heavenly smelling candles. Everyone always smells great after this class too because they spent 4 hours in a room with essential oils.. sounds like a pretty awesome way to spend an afternoon right?

Anna Badur

Bloesem living | Anna Badur home accessories and furniture

Though Anna Badur calls herself a designer, we see her more as an artist. In her piece Drawn by Nature, the natural movement of the wind is captured on the cloth as the blue pigments are blown across it. From far it reminds us of the richness of shibori dyeing but on closer inspection, it is a whole different kind of beauty.

We can truly say that she is a mixed media artist when looking at her portfolio of work, which includes furniture such as the concrete stool that gives the illusion of a soft texture, wallpapers and even working with ceramics. Some of her work is available in her store too.
