#Binstagood - new column

Bloesem Living | #Binstagood Cindy Loughridge

We usually start our Thursdays bright and early with a pinterest collage post, but recently we have been getting really good vibes from the amazing world instagram! This plus our love for creating beautiful collages from our favorite instagram feeds. On top of that, we have had a great response to our thursday feature on BKids, Instagram Mommies. So we would like to welcome you to our first ever #BinstaGood! 

But don't get us wrong we are not leaving pinterest ... no no as a matter of fact we are pinning like crazy these days and seeing how our numbers are growing you are liking our pins :) 

For those who aren't quite up to speed with the whole instagram craze, here's a quick summary (for those who are insta-ddicted, you know who you are, you can skip this part. )

- Instagram is an app you can download on your smart phone.

- How it works: You can edit and post pictures on to your feed, which is like your digital photo album and people who follow your account can see them.

- You can also follow other people's accounts to get updates on your feed when they post new pictures. 

- You can like and comment on other people's photos or even reply to other people's comments on your own photos.

- # you can add a hashtag to your pictures when you would like to group certain pics or be part of a group. We will start using hashtag #BinstaGood ... come and join!

Now that you are all caught up, come join in the fun with the rest of the instagram community!

The Home of Annebet Phillips

Bloesem Living | GetYourKicksOn

 

Do you remember the post 'Get Your Kicks on' ... well today Anke and Kim are showing us this housetour shot in the interesting home of Dutch designer, Annebet Philips. Not only does A have the most quaint home, her works fit right into that space. We love how her designs have literally found their homes, in her home!

As a Delft University of Technology student a few years ago, Annebet took the time to pursue  her own design projects and set up her studio in 2012. Her works are recognizable by their bold shapes and graphic features like the outlines on her My couch, my canvas. Another one of my favorite works of hers is the Knotted lamp! 

Firstly, it is so unusual it wouldn't strike you that it was a lamp at first glance. Also, its exaggerated size gives me a sense of fantasy and imagination. 

Annebet has shown us how her works have come alive in her home. The red and black accents in her pieces create a visual 'pop' in the space. They remind me of something out of an illustration, the graphic effect and the lines in her designs look like they have been drawn into the space itself. Simple yet eye-catching and wonderfully captured by the ladies from Get Your Kicks On!

Paper-flowers and Bubblevases

Bloesem Living | Jorine Oosterhoff

Hi, morning everyone! It's Zara starting a new week here at Bloesem Living ... everyone loves having some fresh flowers around the house, they brighten the house up and make us happy when we catch sight of them while we rush about through out the day. Sadly, no matter how well we take care of fresh flowers, we have to face the harsh reality that they don't last long and soon we are left with a brown unsightly arrangement.

This year the Jorine Oosterhoff has came up with Paperflowers which were based on the concept of flowers you can keep forever... and that is exactly what I would do with these beautiful designs! They come in so many colors, designs and patterns, and would look gorgeous in any home! (especially somebody like me, with no ability to keep any kind of plants alive!)

Let's not forget about the amazing bubblevases the paperflowers are captured in in these photos! Inspired by soap bubbles, Jorine set out to capture their temporary beauty in these vases. Jorine captures the short-lived beauty of both the soap bubbles and flowers perfectly, we can't take our eyes of them!

Merging food and fantasy, her landscape cutlery would be great tools for getting children to eat their food.

Last year Bloesem was lucky enough to meet the duo from Burojet, Jorine Oosterhoff and Egbert-Jan Lam. Check out the interview and home tour here...
