We previously wrote about the beautiful Story Tiles by Marga van Oers (also one of the best selling items in the Bloesem store) and most recently Marga has created Story Wood.
The creative fun stories are now on sustainable wood. We love the tiles but who doesnt love something new! The wood panels come in several different designs and sizes to fit any space in your home. The birch wood panels are 18 mm thick and are easily installed with an integrated hanging system. No fuss, no muss that's our motto. And of course all the pieces come with the Story Wood fire stamp and their own individual flame pattern.

A house I would love to live in ... Christien Starkenburg can come over to Singapore at any time and decorate my home! Her use of color and texture in spaces is just perfect, it's really bold yet not overwhelming. Makes such a statement!
Christien is also art-director at Jan de Jong interiors ... a beautiful shop in the Netherlands and that is where I found these images. I believe christien and Claudy Jongstra another top talent from the low-lands are good friends ... I understand why they are, it truly enhances both their individual designs!
More gorgeous interiors after the cut..

Welcome to Jonna's kitchen, not exactly her's but a kitchen she designed. If you think interior architect, Jonna Klumpenaar sounds familiar, it's because we have written about her own lovely home before. You can have a quick look over here before continuing with this kitchen.
The pictures below are of a kitchen Jonna has designed for a young family from Amsterdam. Working together with her clients, she tries to achieve the perfect atmosphere within the space. To her, being an architect means not only being the creative force but also being able to understand what the client wants and translating that into a design they will appreciate.
It's alot about feeling out who you are working with and getting what they want even if they aren't able to specifically express it. A fan of bright spaces, Jonna loves the energy and peace such spaces eminate. The yellow-painted floor with olive green and white basic kitchen tiles also give the room a young and fresh feel.
Perhaps you remember Jonna her own home with the gorgeous chairs :) right here in the Bloesem archives you can read a short interview with her.

When designers face a problem, they find a way around it. That's exactly what Jody Kocken did.
Finding out she was allergic to perfume, Jody found away around this with Perfume Tools. Her series of Industrial jewelry pieces are able to attach to the openings of perfumes bottles and the tools then work as a means of holding the scent and diffusing them, all the while acting as a barrier between the sensitive skin and the actual perfume.
Though the designs were a way to solve a personal problem, they were more than that. They were an expression of herself as a designer.
We love the tough industrial look of the pieces, which contrast to the delicate nature of frangrances and the body parts you wear the pieces on or spray your perfumes on. All in all, a beautiful collection!

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.

With a palette of pale pastels and light colored wood, M.OSS design immediately caught our attention. The colors, materials and details all work towards this classic, almost old school style, which we love!
Marcel Ossendrijver is the designer behind these beautiful 100% handcrafted light fixtures.
The light fixtures Marcel creates remind us of the metal table lamps we used to see on study tables but with a fresh and fun twist on them!
The image of the lamps in the living room is from here.
