Christmas at Beeldsteil

Bloesem Living | Home of Beeldsteil in Christmas spirit

So delighted to receive these photos taken by Wendy of the Dutch design blog, Beeldsteil, in her own home ... Wendy is showing us how she is decorating for the festivities this year... so let's start this Christmas week with this!

We love the subtlety of the decorations and ornaments. They fit so nicely in with the rest of her home's interior. Truly insipred by the Nordic countries ... and the current black and white themes we see flowing aroung the web ... we believe Wendy had added the exact amount of joy and cheer a home could even have all year round! hahahah ... 

A 180 degree flip from the va-va-voom out there kind of green, red and gold decorations we see so often. It's always inspiring to see the different themes and colors used in everyone's homes. You love some you hate some, and if you are lucky you find the one perfect for your style and your home!

For more on lifestyle, interior design and photography with a scandinavian touch, check out Beeldsteil.

What colors will be your Christmas decorations this year?

Merry Christmas

Bloesem_CristmasCard_2012

 

Dear readers, a Very Merry Christmas to all of you.. here are just some words to end this year on Bloesem..

It certainly has been a turbulent year for me personally.. having experienced the loss of my dad.. but it also has been a great year to look back to. There are many reasons to be grateful and celebrate Christmas.. my two beautiful sons, who are often unbelievably naughty, too energetic at times and without a doubt the most challenging and rewarding job in the world ... kids really do make life worth living.. nothing compares to their cuddles, smiles and funny words..


Cloud

And celebrating that my husband and I have been together for almost 20 years..

and having my mom and step-dad over in sunny, but very Christmassy, KL..!

Celebrating my two Bloesem blogs and all my on “the-side-craft-projects”...some of which I am sure are unlikely to be any cause of celebration when they are finished.. and while now and again I feel like giving it all a break.. and do something completely different with my life.. I simply love my work or should I say Bloesem too much that the thought of changing course always quickly fades away..

So it must be you ... my dear readers, the people I work with and the people I meet online and in person through Bloesem that give me so much energy and passion for this work.. and I would like to thank you for that..

I look forward to being back online in the beginning of January and thank you all for supporting Bloesem during the past year and I hope to see you next year! Hap
py Holidays!

DIY wooden fridge magnets

Magnets_wood_diy

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas...with a little glitter and sparkle. These shapes might look familiar to you, we used simple Ikea cookie cutters. It was a little tricky cutting the ply wood. But we managed to create these simple magnets. Last minute decision to not paint over the wood, we love it's natural color and a little gold.

DIY_Magnets

A tip or two...
*The type of wood we got is soft and light. Perfect for cutting and making small magnets.
*Not advisable to do with children, but decorating it once its cut is something fun they can enjoy.
*Sand paper the sides if you want a smooth finish.
*That is all... so easy and looks good too.
