Colorful living with Hellen van Berkel

Hellenvanberkel_diningtable

Come and see this beautiful home .. again :) ... here on Bloesem. Hellen van Berkel who lives here already shared her amazing place with us a couple of years ago, but this time my friend Marjon Hoogervorst made the pictures, not only of her home but also of her new collection gorgeous silk scarves ... I really like what Marjon did to the images scarves ... letting them flow and bringing them to live ...                       [READ and SEE MORE after the break]

Hellen van Berkel is a textile designer living in the Netherlands. The images you see here are part of a whole series featured in the October issue of Dutch magazine VTWonen. Her place is amazing and I totally understand why VTWonen liked to feature her. 

What I really like in Hellen her home are the colors. She has a talent for combining different colors, perfect tones. When I see the floor in the kitchen below I would never have thought about choosing these tcolored tiles, but the look superb! Making this kitchen special and I believe easy to maintain.

Perhaps best to send VTWonen an email if you would like to see the issue.

La Casita de Wendy is back in the spotlight with their Winter Collection “montañas” Reminds us a little of a winter fairytale .... this collection does have a magical feel to it. We love the bold colors and the retro feel. La casita de wendy are a genius in making beautiful patterns, the ones on the scarves and posters are by far our favorite :) 

We at Bloesem also love  ‘The Crafters Project’ section. On their blog you’ll be able to check out new unique items designed for La Casita de Wendy.

Monday's quick start: Manhatten by Famille Summerbelle

Famsummerbelle

Launching this week, Famille Summerbelle’s new wallpaper and accessory collection: Manhattan.

Never to disappoint, we love the new detailed illustrations of people and the skyline of a ‘Morning in Manhattan'.  If you look closely you can even spot a pretzel stand. The new wallpapers are perfect for any room in a house where kids live. Ochre yellow happens to be the new color for us here on Bloesem so we are having our eyes set on one of these rolls. More pictures below the fold and click here for Famille Summerbelle's website.
