Meanwhile in Kuala Lumpur..

Bloesem Living | LOKL Kualar Lumpar

A few weeks back we met Ping & Cheryl, a very friendly couple from Malaysia while they were in Singapore. After chatting for awhile, we found out that they are the owners of the cafe LOKL in Kualar Lumpur! (Love the name of the cafe!) They are also connected to BackHome hostel (pictures below), which looks like a lovely place to stay if you are ever visiting KL.

LOKL is a neighbourhood cafe in the historic heart of KL. They serve espressos and local coffee, hot sandwiches with a local twist, and cakes and pastries. It is housed in a bright airy space with an internal courtyard that’s shared with BackHome hostel.

BackHome is an award-winning boutique backpacker’s hostel located right in the heart of Kualar Lumpur, Malaysia. Located in the historic heart of Kuala Lumpur, you’ll find some of the city’s best attractions located within a stone’s throw away. They promise that you’ll get the same tender loving care as you do back home. That means personal attention, a good night’s rest and peace of mind.

BackHome is also home to the LOKL Coffee Co., it's own in-house café that helps sets a positive vibe for your stay in Kuala Lumpur.

Fantastic Frank

Bloesem Living | Fantastic Frank

Now here is a real estate agent who understands to sell his goods!

We all know it all comes down to choosing the right location when buying a property ... but making the space look as attractive as possible is a guarantee for success! I am loving the styling in each and every room Fantastic Frank lays in hands on.

Founded in Stockholm in 2010 Fantastic Frank is a traditional real estate agency with a passion for great photography and great sales. They opened another office in Mitte, Berlin in 2013 ... which city will be next? My guess London ... what about yours?

And what is left for us .. some serious snooping around in other people 's houses!

Living in Antwerp

Bloesem Living |Luster Diane Hendrikx

The book you saw yesterday in Veronique her apartment is by publisher Luster ... it's about cool and interesting homes in Antwerp, Belgium. I haven't read the book myself but looking at some of the pictures makes me want to order it

It's not the first time photographer Diane Hendrikx is working for Luster. A whole series of interior books have her name on it. Glad to be able to share some inspiring pictures today with you. They give me a mad men feel ... what about you? ps. not all the images here are from the same book ... the post is perhaps more an ode to the beautiful work of Diane

Interior ideas for brands&people

Bloesem Living | IntSight in Barcelona

IntSight ... a company from Barcelona in Spain I would hire if I needed some guidance in interior ideas for a new project ... their portfolio is a feast for the eye. It was chök, the chocolate kitchen that I spotted over at Blog Milk and wanted me to know a bit more about the people who designed this new chocolate kitchen in Barcelona. ... but I couldn't find much about the creatives behind IntSight other then they say they like to inspire, create concepts, develop ideas and define spaces ... perhaps we should leave it with that and just enjoy the images ... a selection of different prjects!

Of course I wouldn't be so drawn to their work if it wasn't for the impaccable photography by Mireia Rodriguez.

Hay opens in Amsterdam

BintiHome-HAYSTORE-AMSTERDAM-7266

{photo credit: Souraya at Binti Home}

It really is  a small world ... while having lunch with a new friend yesterday here in Singapore I learned about the new HAY shop in Amsterdam. My friend happens to be very good friends with the owners of Friday Next, also in Amsterdam. You might think what does Friday Next have to do with HAY ... well, they are the founders of the gorgeous and huge HAY shop too. 

Quite impressive what these two creative moms, Esther Blaffert and Paulien de Vries, have accomplished already ... and such an important impact they have on the interior design scene in the Netherlands. 

A lovely lady who used to work at Friday Next has been blogging for Bloesem before and I thought she might be able to help ... and yes indeed Souraya from Binti home ... was lucky to step inside the new HAY just before the crowds arrived and took some awesome images for us ... Enjoy!
