I'm sure you understand why I am sharing By Mölle with you today :)
What I especially love about this brand form the Netherlands is that the two founders and sisters, Eveline and Marianne Maat, choose to work with only natural materials that do not harm the environment!
Great styling and photography ... shows again how important these two things are when you want to get your products accross....
ps. not the first time they made it to Bloesem's Quick Start column!

Hello Monday and hello friends. Hope you enjoyed your weekend? What did you do? We had birthday parties, saw some friends and I made some new necklaces for the Bloesem Wear shop. Can't believe a couple of the designs are already sold out ... and it makes me truly happy more and more people are starting to wear real Pearls again!
Perhaps you remember this bedroom? Imogen Heath has updated her website with new fabrics, new cushions and a new online shop to make your life easier ... nice inspiration to start a new week with!

Spend A Day with Kate and I am sure you will find some perfect things that you have been craving for quite some time ... me personally I have been eyeing one of the lomography cameras for a long time.
Beatrix NY, Pop Cutie and Fjällräven were recently added to their collection and the good news is A Day with Kate is able to ship worldwide ... so what are you waiting for!
I think it was in Spain that I first saw people wearing a bag from the Cambridge Satchel company. I like these very affordable but stylish bags. Which color would you prefer a bright and eyecatching color or one of the new softer tones?
.. A Day with Kate

Some wonderful collaborations in the new autumn / winter collection 2014 by minä perhonen. You know that I am a huge fan of his work. And always enjoy sharing his latest pieces. But this time it's perhaps even more interesting because of the new products with Wasara, Torafu and diptyque.
'The Picnic Kit' to celebrate Wasara's 5th anniversary. Such a smart idea from Torafu architects to invite minä perhonen and pattern the gorgeous air vases. Who doesn't love diptyque and diptyque loves minä perhonen just as much as I do!

I hope you have had a great weekend? We adjusted well and are ready for the almost final quarter of this year. Many exciting things to happen for me and for Bloesem. Will keep you posted of course :)
During our vacation in the Netherlands I decided that I have to go back to some of things that I really enjoy doing .. one of them is knitting and while searching for knitted home accessories I ran into these pillows and throws by seven gauge studios.
I love their vibrant colors and of course the styling in a contemporary setting. I learnt on their about page that the items are made with a knitting machine, which I want to learn too ... so if anyone knows where I can buy one PLEASE let me know!

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.
