Black Kitchens


While working on a styling job I was doing some research on kitchens ... should you go for white, colored or black ... today I show you my favorite black ones ... but just choosing the color is just a first step ... if you were to decide on black would you go for matte, gloss, wood, veneer or else ...

Kellie Smits


I am a huge fan of my Kellie Smits, founder and owner of funky online shop Buisjes En Beugels +++.

She is not only a webshop owner, she is also super talented and a very creative person, a lady with style!

First she started her own fashion line for kids and about a year ago she launched her first furniture piece. The insekt desk in green is simply beautiful. I am proud she is a sponsor of Bloesem.

A new fleet wish-boats


My dear friend Jurianne Matter re-invented her first and very succesfull product, the paper wish-boats by giving them a gorgeous new pattern and color palette. 

The little paper boats are designed to sail out to celebrate weddings, newborn babies, birthdays, anniversaries or sometimes even as treasure ships (with money or candies). With a bit of inventiveness you can also make a unique paper chain or a mobile for a child’s room! 

Before you start folding, you can write a personal wish or message along the railing. The folding takes only a few minutes per boat.   [MORE IMAGES]

Monday's quick start: Utopia & Utility


wowowoWOW ... not only are all the materials used for these vessels great ... the way they are combined together is just divine! I can only imagine how beautiful these vessels would look in a clean and modern home.

I think it is the first time here on Bloesem that I am telling you about a 'brother - sister' team, but Pia and Moritz Wustenberg from Utopia & Utility are siblings . They say they like to combine the functional and the fantastical and believe that everything that deserves to be made, deserves to be made well. From the process to the finished objects, our intend is to enrich life through beauty.... agree?

The brother- sister team started theor company only recently in 2012. Their aim is to grow a business with integrity and good intend, wishing to highlight the beauty of craft and the value in tacit skills.                     [MORE IMAGES]
