Bloesem online garage sale...


It is time for my family and me to move house again and I thought selling my goodies and collectables online would make more sense than bringing them along in carton boxes...

All the products you find in my shop originate from previous entrepreneurial endeavors... I once had my own cards collection, selling at BARNEYS New York and Selfridges & Co in London, designed a baby shoe collection that was sold in many shops in the Netherlands, almost started a knitting shop in Toronto, but had to move on again... and all the other goodies are small collections I bought during my travels in Asia…

Sponsor Spotlight : Huset


Last week I was asked by an Asian life-style magazine for a photoshoot in my home because of the Scandinavian, Nordic type of furniture and accesoiries we have... of course I said yes and now I'm preparing our home for the up-coming shoot... visiting Huset is certainly part of my preparations... their shop is like a MUST when it comes to finding Scandinavian and especially Swedish inspiration.... some of my favorites items in their shop right now are: the Lisa Bengtsson Tillsammans posters; this tray by ; the Norwegian forest lamp shade by Cathrine Kullberg; the retro looking Scandi telephone; this Buck Stacking Game and these hidden animal teacups...  more>>>


 I just saw this picture on Huset's blog, new bedding from Brita of Sweden and I really like :)... you too?


All products can be found in the Huset shop.

Joon & Jung


I'm in the mood for Joon&Jung today... i just love their work very much and believe not shared it with you before... Joon&Jung is a multi-discipline design studio based in Eindhoven, but the founders are originally from Korea. Combining their background and what they have learned and seen at de the design academy results in these delicate but solid looking designs. 

My favorites are the 'natural speakers'; the architect curtain; pillow blanket and the living light...
