Pure at Hills & Mills

NU_Hills-mills

The leather Handles from Monday brought me to Hills & Mills. A great café / bakery in Delft (one of the smaller but absolutely very beautiful cities from the Netherlands).

Here it's all about PURE .. a word I have came across very often this summer in Amsterdam ... Pure Markets, Pure Restuarants and Pure bakeries like Hills & Mills ...  seems like the Dutch are embracing a new 'honest' way of living. Good! 

Only one mission at Hills & Mills:  'Practicing Happiness' ... and looking at the pictures their food and drinks will do just that :)

And three guidelines  … for everything they do:
1. We build on the pure in the world. Pure people, relationships and products.
2. We do the right in every situation. The right intentions and actions. Also at the right speed, taste and resources.
3. We enjoy that everything and everyone is connected. 

Unfortunately no time for me this year to stop by but definitely a place to ad to my travel tips list.

Shop stop: P5 in Singapore

P5_front

If you are wondering where to go for the best design furniture in Singapore how about starting right here at P5. Brands like moroso, e15, artek and royal tichelaar makkum all under one (beautiful) roof.

When I walked in I was happily surprised to see  the vases by Hella Jongerius when I mentioned them to the sales person he was impressed that I recognized them and understood I knew a thing or two about design  so we started chatting... Aloyus, no longer the salesperson, but the owner and founder of this shop, is as passionate about furniture as he is about food ... hopefully soon he will show me around in town and chat about our love for design. P5's address.

Today I am helping you with a visual tour inside P5

ps. If you can't find it here perhaps wonderful Foundry just 5 minutes away can help you.

Unami in Oakland, California

Umami-mart_5

When opening a brick and mortar shop I would use these images for my inspiration board ... 

They are from pop-up shop Umami Mart. Normally a Japanese food blog and webshop importing speciality and luxurious Japanese kitchen  ware. They were part of Popuphood, an initiative in Oakland (outside San Francisco), giving stores six months free rent in dead areas of town to invoke new life and growth and hopefully allow the new shop owners to sign a long term store lease after the test period. 

The shop was designed by Arhoj.

Creative People Projects in Singapore

Rebeccatoh3

Rebeccatoh4

You know how much I love sites like Coffeeklatch , wheretheycreate and freundevonfreunden so I am delighted to see we have our own Singapore version. 

The Creative People Projects is the eye-candy site from Rebecca Toh, who takes us to studios, ateliers and offices from creative people here in SG and Taiwan.

Rebecca Toh got the idea for this Portrait Project came about when she realized how far away she was from the people she admires. Then she remembered that she has a camera... "and that with a camera one always has the perfect excuse to get closer, to walk into lives, to achieve a form of intimacy that is usually unattainable. I hope this photo project will eventually be a record of some of these moments spent with these wonderful, super-talented people."

Creative People Projects only shows us how much creativity there is on this side of the planet ... and that so much more can be expected in the future...

I'm happy to be so close to these people and can't wait to meet some of them in person too. 

Enjoy some of the images here on Bloesem already, but visit the site for all!

Shop stop: colonel in Paris

Colonel

It always starts with the Front and here it already looks amazing, my favorite color blueish grey ... so the rest is probably good too ... what am I talking about... well a shop in Paris called Colonel that I have marked as a must-visit next time I am going to Europe.

In 2010 Isabelle Gilles and Yann Poncelet met each other while sipping cocktails and the rest is history ... a beautiful collection lamps from their own brand and a beautiful brick and mortar shop carrying other great brands like HAY too. 

I shared some more images on BKids the other day.

Monday's quick start: Desinere from Singapore

Desinere.com.sg_R3_700

Rik and I scrolled around town last weekend and visited P5 (more about this gorgeous shop later this week) and supermama ... there I briefly met one of the designers from Desinere ... he was taking pictures of this gorgeous Paperweight called Rok  and I was lucky this morning to find them on their website

He told me he and his partner will be going to Milan next week to present their work and I am sure it is going to be a big hit! I have fallen in love with all their designs and the one I love most ... is a beautiful woven basket made from leather... unfortunately NO pictures yet ... but I hope soon after the Milan fair. 

I wish Desinere success in Milan! It was nice meeting you. ~irene
