Story Tiles

Bloesem Living | Story Tiles

 Stumbled upon Story Tiles by the very talented Marga van Oers, and we love it! What it basically is, is giving traditional 16th century Dutch tiles a new lease on life. Together with her business partner, Judith Brook, they have created the brand Story tiles, with their humorous collages are just most delightful and unexpected.

Dutch Mountain House

Car_in_your_house

Ever thought of placing a car in your home? I haven't and I don't think I ever will but to be honest it does look kind of cool in this living room. The reason why I wanted to share this house today with you is because I love the architecture ... DeNieuweGeneratie designed an underground house somewhere in a beautiful nature reserve in the Netherlands... trying to adapt the home to its surroundings in the best way possible and not disrupting the environment to much... perhaps that's why they parked the car inside :) 

I love it , what do you think?

Spotlight: AAVA helsinki

Ava_helsinki

Do you have any real art in your home? Or have you ever considered buying some but no idea where to start looking to buy? Well I might have a place for you online ...  AAVA Helsinki is new art gallery with a good concept and a clear mission: "Our sole purpose is to build bridges between artists and art-loving audiences by bringing high-quality paintings to homes and offices - at an affordable price." ... 

At the Designed By collection you can find 9 very talented artists but AAVA Helsinki is always looking for new and more designers who share their views in bringing art to a wider audience. 

To be honest my husband and I have not yet bought any art but we are getting more interested and browsing through  AAVA Helsinki helps me to better imagine what painting could do to one of our rooms too. Which painting do you like best?

Sponsor spotlight: Chris Knight

Chrisknight

 

Photographer and visual artist Chris Knight from Chicago travelled all over the world... and photographed bands like Radiohead and U2! Constantly searching for new ways to print his images on and turning them into little pieces of art. I have never seen prints on small stones before, have you? But I kinda like these little cuties ... 

The stars and stripes on wood are my favorite and will look cool in any room.

Hayon Studios it is!

Gardenias_hayonstudio

A BIG YEAHHH for Hayon Studios and their 3 latest designs ... (you know superstar Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon, who is younger than me!)

Gardenia ... a collection of furniture and pots for the garden

The Catch chair for Danish brand & Tradition ... beautifully organically shaped and inspired by 'curves'

and 'Ro' for another Danish brand Fritz Hansen ... where 'Ro' means tranquillity in Danish. I read on the site that the name 'Ro' was chosen because it captures the point of the chair in just two letters, thus reflecting the Nordic approach and concept of beauty... nice we like that!
