Now we all know that Irene has a huge appreciation for everything ceramic, here's our previous post on The Clay Studio. As you all already know they are a nonprofit organization that promotes the arts. You can shop by artist, I picked Derek Au's piece because I just love the color of his collection! Here are also some lovely pieces if you love modern geometric shapes like I do.

Bloesem's home in Real Living Magazine



Last week Irene came home with the December issue of Real Magazine Australia with a smile on her face. She must have been happy with the feature. We all are! It looks great! Irene and family would like to thank Real Magazine so much for featuring them and their home here in KL. Being one of her favorite magazines, this December issue is filled with great Christmas decorating ideas too.

All pictures was taken by personal friend Marjon Hoogervorst. Im sure you recognize that name by now. She has beautiful pictures all over Bloesem especially in our Face-to-face a new Designer's Profile column.


The article starts off with what Irene and Rik wants in a home. "open spaces, high ceilings and a decent sized home office for Irene's studio." This place says it all. After getting to know Irene a little better I can really say that every inch of this home was thought for and added a touch of their personality and style even some toys on the counter by the boys.
Every piece that I point to has a story. "a mix of new and vintage pieces bough on trips to the Netherlands since their travelling adventures began in 2006." And yes, I even asked about the story behind the albino Chinese girl photograph on the wall. Creating a 'real home' sounds easier than done, Irene shares this thought too in the article. [READ MORE]

This is where I spend my weekdays, the office space/crafts room/inspiration room. I love it! And yes, the best part is the full window of natural light and a view of the outdoors. Irene talks a little bit about the 'black walls' she has here. For an office like this it's perfect for photoshoot days and matches well with all our wooden furniture.
As you can see in the picture below, her bedroom has a black wall as well. What do you think? Do
we all love?



Explore Irene's vintage finds, studio space and her relax and play rooms. Grab a copy of the December issue of Real Living to check out Irene's full feature and many more. There's some last minute gifts idea, more beautiful homes and some Christmas recipes to try out.~Sufiya
