Studio Bas_i.c.

Hello...and welcome back for a new week of design, arts and crafts on Bloesem...I hope you had a lovely weekend...I received an email from Lianne Ernst from Mrs.Me (a gorgeous home textiles company) about a website she designed for a friend of hers, Bastiënne van Bockel, who is a well-known stylist in the Netherlands ... and I love to share these inspirational images with you of her styling work...

All the images are from interior styling projects Bastiënne did for private clients. But Bastiënne also designs a small but unique collection jewelry and accessories..please have a look here ... if you have any questions for Bastiënne you can contact her via this email address. {Tomorrow I will be showing some craft projects and on Wednesday some bloggerfriends of mine are showing their gorgeous private museum pieces in their homes}

..a while ago I wrote a weekend read for Bloesem called "At Home" ... in this read I told you about Li Edelkoort's prediction that we will all be living in our own museum some time in the near future ... Li sees us living among our handpicked collector’s items, but also family pieces that passed on from generation to generation ...

I LOVE this idea and believe what Li says is true ... and I wanted to do a follow up on this idea together with
other design bloggers ... so I invited some wonderful guests from the bloggerscommunity (and will invite more) to show us their two favorite pieces in their home or should I say 'their own Private Museum' ...

Every Wednesday Bloesem will be showing favorite design pieces from one or two guests ... and today we're kicking off with Kathleen Losche and Heather Moore ...

Kathleen Losche favorite pieces in her house

The first piece I (= Kathleen) chose is a drawing I bought a few months ago from Christine Buckton Tillman. I have been a fan of Christine’s work for awhile, and was always excited to see new pieces she would post on her Flickr page. Then one day a few months ago she posted this drawing and I could not stop looking at it. I love its depth and all the layers of paint, ink, collage, and pencil. Every time I look at it I see something entirely new.
The second pieces I chose are a hand-built ceramic pot and tea bowl. I don’t keep a lot of my own work on display (hardly any.) But there are a couple piece I made at a summer ceramics intensive when I was in high school (eons ago) that I always have out wherever I’ve lived. I like that they are personal to me and that they remind me of a really amazing creative time in my young life. Every time I move I’m terrified the big pot is going to break, (like right now!)
