Pepe Heykoop

42_matka2

Pepe Heykoop another Dutch designer that caught our attention here at Bloesem. Great story behind great products I would say. If you like to add a touch of dutch modern to your home, Pepe designs mostly lamps and vases.
Not "perfect" and rough around the edges is what makes his products beautiful and one of a kind.

While I was reading his website and a little about him, I also read that Pepe started a workshop in India together with the Tiny Miracles Foundation. Teaching illiterate individuals a skill and providing income for them is a priceless act. Good job Pepe! Also if you are interested in an internship you can read all about it here. Im sure it's a great environment to be a part of.   [CONTINUE READING]

Monday's quick start: Heidi Lerkenfeldt

HeidiLerkenfeldt

Hello, I hope you have had a lovely weekend? What did you do? I started preparing for a photo shoot for next week. A company here in KL asked if I could do the styling for their new online shop and collection ... great of course.

While looking for some inspiration online I found the beautiful portfolio by Danish photographer Heidi Lerkenfeldt (via Ellen's album). ALthough she is not the stylist her images give me lots of ideas how I would like to see the shoot done too next week. If you know who the stylist is or are let me know! ~irene
