Kellie's new collection for BB+++

Bloesem Living | Buisjes en Beugels +++

From desks to the designs you see here, we believe you guys share our love for Kellie's (aka Buisjes en Beugels +++ ) design aesthetic. Her NEW homewares are off the beaten path and truly a breath of fresh air.

Right off our recent post on chopping boards, we have to say Kellie's design is definitely out of the box. The graphic lines and shapes of the chopping boards make them pieces of kitchen art!

Kellie originally started out designing kids fashion, with her two children as her muses and little models but with her origins in product design, it was a matter of time she came back to her roots! Along with her other award winning designs (In 2009 she designed INSEKT desk, in 2011 it was ready to be launched on the international market and in 2013 it became the IMM Interior Innovation Award Winner!), Buisjes En Beugels +++ webshop also hosts a number of guests labels.

101Characters at Piet Hein Eek

Bloesem Living | My Deer #101karakters

A few weeks ago Histor organized a competition in the Netherlands,called 101Karakters, for people to submit their ideas of how they would customize a specially designed cabinet by Piet Hein Eek. 2000 People submitted their designs, and 101 of those submissions were chosen and invited to Piet Hein Eek's workshop to actually get their hands dirty and create their designs. 

What an amazing opportunity!

I love the concept behind this and the fact that you are able to express your own design aesthetic, what ever it may be. 

Of the 101 designs that were chosen, we have picked one by Maaike from My Deer, that caught our attention! After spotting this instagram mommy previously, we had noticed her snap of her custom design on her feed. Don't you agree her design is beautiful? And the pictures of the cabinet and space look fantastic.

We already have some ideas how we would design our cabinet if we had the chance. Plus, it would have looked great in our new studio space in the new year. (How is it already coming to the end of 2013?!)

Color Collision sidetable

Bloesem Living | Kristie van Noort

The last time we looked at Kristie van Noort's works we were captivated by the beautiful range and pigments of her ceramics.

This time round her porcelain and ash wood sidetables are treated with the same pigments and processes as the ceramics and my, oh my, what a wonderful outcome!

If you, like us, had already fallen for the ceramics the first time around, then you should share our excitement for these sidetables. What's different from the other dipped colored furniture that we see so much is that the color is not painted on, and this way, it creates this natural texture and look of the pigments. Truly enthralling.

Also, the color combinations she uses for both the table and ceramics are perfection! two thumbs up!

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...
