Gift Guides 2011


Tiffany and I already started preparing finding great items for the Bloesem and BKids gift guides 2011. We will start sharing them with you around the third week of October and we will be keeping the same format like last year, with many different categories, becasue many of you told us that you liked it and thought it was an easy way to look for your perfect gift. 

Why am I telling you this ... well... just like last year you can be part of the guide by becoming a sponsor with your online shop and have a permanent spot on the sidebanner. The ad will run for EVER... 

Placing an ad will cost only USD 50.-  ... just shoot me an email if you are interested to buy on either Bloesem or BKids or both :)

{note: the ad space is at the Gift Guide 2011 page, not the home page of Bloesem or BKids}

MondaysMilk & fabrics by Vorstin


Just some living inspiration for you today from a home in the Netherlands that was photographed by my best photographers friend Marjon Hoogervorst. The home is from a very lovely lady and her family who started an online fabric shop not so long ago called, MondaysMilk

Rozalinde, the lady I am talking about sells some of my favorite fabrics from Japanese labels, nani IRO and Echino. But she also makes products from these fabrics. I LOVE this pillow below and the anitque pink handbag is on my wishlist for Christmas :).......................... more images>>>



These are just a couple of snapshots from Rozalinde her home captured by Marjon, more beautiful ones will soon be published in Dutch magazine Viva. So if you would like to see the whole house then buy the next issue of Viva NL or click here and get some more impressions over at BKids



Styling by Marieke van Proosdij from Pimpelwit.

Pop Up Gallery by Studio Aandacht


Ben Lambers, yes the genius behind the Bloesem logo, just send me these images of the Pop Up Gallery, which took place in their studio/home for Inside Design Amsterdam organised by Dutch Elle decoration.


Every year the avant garde of Dutch design showcases their work during these days, perhaps you remember last year's report on Bloesem. This year the event took place on different locations at one of the newest neigborhoods of Amsterdam called Ijburg... according to Ben a wonderful place to live. 

Studioaandacht  Tatjana Set-1-final-hr-1


The Pop Up Gallery was called, 'wand'meubel = 'wall'furniture... displaying the work of Nienke Sybrandy and the 'wand'meubel itself was designed by Dutch designer Jeroen Wand

I believe Tatjana Quax, Ben's wife, who has been a stylist for the longest time for many magazines and often for Elle decoration NL, has had quite the influence in creating this Pop Up Gallery. The color she has chosen on the wall is just beautiful.


Just some images of previous styling jobs Tatjana has done ... perhaps you recognise... Slow Wood above or this work for Volkskrant Magazine..  and let me not forget.. this book: How They Work, one of my absolute favorites!  


If you would like to work with either one of them or both for an upcoming project don't hesitate... just email them!

KL Design Week 2011: Buah-Buahan


And my final post from the KL design week 2011 is about the group show: Buah Buahan. ... designers showcasing their work all inspired by Buah Buahan or Fruits in English... 

The work of 21 designers and artisits was showcased Buah Buahan and I loved almost all of it. Unfortunately not much was for sale ...

 Buahbuahan1 Buahbuaha

In their own words the inspiration for this exhibition Buah Buahan came from ... an experience that most Malaysians would have gone through during Art Class in primary school. The art teacher would ask students to draw a picture based on the theme of Makanlah Buah-buahan Tempatan.

That picture of local fruits which most of us drew as kids could very well be the first time we all learned that durian, rambutan, kelapa, manggis, betik and more are fruits that grow locally. This exhibition celebrates that special moment we all share together as Malaysians.

It is also a collaborative effort by local creative individuals to promote local fruits as well as to rally the nation to appreciate (and consume) locally crafted art. After all, art is also one of the fruits of our homeland.
