My mom and stepdad arrived last week and it is just so wonderful to be with them! Not to mention how happy I was with my new 'toys' from the Nethrlands :) ...perfect material for a good weekend!
During the weekend I'm going to show my mom my favorite spots around town, will bring my camera and try to capture some things for you too ... most likely I will post them on my instagram feed.
When seeing the chinese white lanterns in one of the series in Elle decoration I again fell in love with them ... beautiful how they are stacked together here on top of the yellow stove.
I hope you are in for a nice weekend too! Love to hear what you are going to do and wish you a very good weekend! ~ irene xoxo
Last week Irene came home with the December issue of Real Magazine Australia with a smile on her face. She must have been happy with the feature. We all are! It looks great! Irene and family would like to thank Real Magazine so much for featuring them and their home here in KL. Being one of her favorite magazines, this December issue is filled with great Christmas decorating ideas too.
All pictures was taken by personal friend Marjon Hoogervorst. Im sure you recognize that name by now. She has beautiful pictures all over Bloesem especially in our Face-to-face a new Designer's Profile column.
Dear readers, let me start with thanking you for all the warm emails, cards, comments and tweets. They really mean the world to me. Going back to work this week also helps with the grieve and pain I am continuously feeling ... but I enjoy being back with all of you again!
I also would like to thank these beautiful ladies who have send their geust-posts on a very short notice, making sure Bloesem could continue as normal ... Victoria @sfgirlbybay, Danielle @TheStyleFiles, Anouk @AnoukB, Jan @Poppytalk and Jennifer @amerrymishap.... and last but certainly not least a big thank you to Sufiya!
During my absence a little package came in the mail, it was the second issue of SLØ magazine. So many beautiful things in such a small package. A French magazine of images and information about lifestyle, food and travel. [CONTINUE READING]
Seeing a home in one of the nicest interior design mags that has your name written with it is truly nice. In the current issue of Elle Decoration NL you can find the home of architect couple Wen Hsia and BC Ang based in Kuala Lumpur. Last year when photographer Marjon Hoogervorst came to work with me on several projects we also shot this home and it is probably one of the coolest ones in KL.
building bloc architects are known for making the best use of basic materials, concrete, copper, stone. Using nature's own elements is what makes a concrete home like this feel warm and very easy to live in.
