No this is not the house where I live :) but ever since my husband and I landed here in Kuala Lumpur this incredible house intrigues us enormously! We often drive by 'the spaceship', as my husband and I like to call it, because our friends live nearby...of course from the road you can only see so much...so yesterday I thought I'm going to search on the internet for this property and it quickly popped up on my screen ... the CoolHunter recently wrote a post about the stunning residence and the architects who designed it...Paris-based Agence Jouin Manku.

...wouldn't it be nice if one day the family invites me over for a coffee so I can see this incredible place from within it's walls. I never expected it to be this big, because it's so modest and well done from the outside.

Last week I was showing some of the fabulous things Rachel Peloquin designs for kids. But this creative lady from Paris also makes stunning designs for us grown-ups... her screenprints, patterns and handmade jewelry are according to me stunning! She calls herself Rose Patate and you can find her blog and shop right here...

I can't get enough of mice tea towels ... I regard them as beautiful printed peices of fabric that I can decorate our home with ... I sometimes even use them to make pillows...so what nicer then to discover this website ... ToDryFor ... it specializes in designer tea towels. A husband and wife team based in Oxford, England, have sourced over 100 designs from more than 20 different designers...my selection above :: by Lisa Jones Studio

This weekend the Dutch design week 2009 starts and oh how I wish I could go there ... if you have images from this event you would like to share with me on Bloesem, please shoot me an email...I would like to sign off this week with the incredible textile designs by Mae Engelgeer, aka fabricfreak. She designed this 'Muse Collection' as an ode to her muse: the bow and the collection was manufactured at Audax textile museum. Some of the pieces are available online at Wannekes. Enjoy your weekend! ..irene
