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...

A BonBonBox with designer items just for you to pick and taste .... a great online shopping concept recently launched. The team behind BonbonBox shares the love for searching, choosing and collecting interesting products, inspiring images and funny stories...

By actually visiting the designers at their workplace and share their stories over at BonBonBox  makes it for you the customer a whole lot more fun to buy an item. I am planning to check in very often because BonBonBox refreshes their collection every week with new designers !

Only one more day left to order one of the awesome and award-winning TimeCapsules by my friend Anouk van der El. And don't forget to visit again in the days to come because new designers and products will be added to the shop ... like these gorgeous porcelain cups by De Intuitie Fabriek.

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?

Maartje van den Noort

Maartje

We just spend our last weekend in the Netherlands after a beautiful summer and extreme nice weather... this week it is time to fly back to our 'normal' life in Asia. Always a bit sad to leave our family and friends again and knowing you will be going back to a life where you always feel a bit like a stranger but that is also the interesting and exciting part... and I am convinced that living in Singapore is best for me and my family at this point in our lives. I have said it so many times before but I do believe that SG has so much to offer and I just love the climate and sunshine ...

But let's start this week with some beautiful work by Maartje van den Noort from the Ntehrlands whom I finally met in person .... very briefly though but nice enough to get an impression of this talented lady ...

A while ago her home was featured here on Bloesem.

Monday's quick start: NU leather handles

NU_handle-green

You might have seen them before but I still like them very much and thought these lovely leather handles by NU need to be shown here at Bloesem Living too. NU interieur | ontwerp is a design studio from the Netherlands ...

When these couldn't find the perfect leather handle they were looking for, for one of their interior design projects they thought designing one themselves. Handle is available in different colors and in three sizes: S, M and L. You can order the handles in their shop right here.
