Lying on silk

Gingerlily

 { 1. Silk bedding ; 2. Eva White bed linen ; 3. Silk throw ; 4. Disk cushion ; 5. Sleep cushion }

I don't know what you look forward to when you get home after a long day at work but for me having a comfy bed to sleep in is always a great way to kick back. The silk bedding from Gingerlily is truly pampering and luxurious. Their all season weight duvet is great no matter the weather you are in at the moment - for us it's not too hot at night in Singapore, thankfully. Plus, ladies, sleeping on silk bedding is great for your hair! There's no friction so it means smoother looking hair... Always a plus...

Face to Face: Interview with Studio Oink

Bloesem living | Conversation Issue: Bloesem Gazette - interview with Studio Oink

Among the many talented creatives we interviewed in the latest issue of the Bloesem Gazette, we had the privilege to speak with the duo behind interior design studio, Studio Oink. We have always been big fans of their styling work and grabbed the opportunity to ask them for their expert advice on home decoration and keen forecast on design trends in 2015.  

How did you guys end up working together in the interior design scene?

When we met the first time in 2011 on the furniture fair in Cologne we felt a big connection between us and when I finished my studies one year ago it was clear to us, that we will work together and set up our own interior studio. Since our childhood we both felt connected to interiors, aesthetic pieces, furniture and craft matters. In my case (Lea), when I was watching a movie for example, I was always interested in the interior and how the interior interacts with the actors. Matthias built a lot of small wooden houses in his childhood; some were in the trees and some in bushes. A lot of things were about a "home" in our childhood, so it was a kind of logical consequence that we ended up in the interior design scene.

What is the dynamics of your partnership? Who does what? 

We have the same "goal" and the same feeling and relation to "aesthetics". I am responsible for the marketing, the PR and even for the acquisition. Matthias is responsible for the technical drawings, the crafted things and all the technical and crafted related questions and works. But if we have a project, we work out together the concept. We both make up our minds and we make some moodboards. On a meeting we fix the basic themes and the colour schemes. After we created the basic mood and the concept, I am responsible for the more detailed moods and the research of furniture and so on. Matthias takes over responsibility for the drawings, so everything goes "hand in hand" and we always work as a team on a project. We never work on a project alone. Its very important to us, to listen to the opinion of the other and discuss about moods and colours and so on.

We take a break from our regularly scheduled home accessory collections for some brain food.. Daniel To and Emma Aiston set up their design studio, Daniel Emma, to express themselves through their industrial design work. I must say their work is pretty abstract just looking at the images but they do get our brains thinking and is a great start to the work week..

Face to Face: Catch up with Mae Engelgeer

Bloesem living | Conversation Issue: Bloesem Gazette - interview with Dutch textile designer, Mae Engelgeer

Bloesem living | Conversation Issue: Bloesem Gazette - interview with Dutch textile designer, Mae Engelgeer

In the latest issue of the Bloesem Gazette, titled "The Converation Issue", we wanted to delve into the minds of our favourite talents from around the world. Having had a long time crush on her work, we got in touch with Dutch textile designer, Mae Engelgeer, again after we last interviewed her in early 2012. 

Hi Mae, the last time we talked was in May 2012, has a lot changed since then? We’d love for you to update us.

Yes a lot has changed. I think the last time we spoke I had just moved into my first studio space. We were busy developing the ISH. Collection and our presentation for Milan 2013. I think since Milan things went into a more vivid flow, but now (2.5 years later) it’s not quite like that anymore, which of course is a good thing!

What is the first thought that crosses your mind when you wake up?

Is it morning already? And then I think about the things that are on my list for the day, and of course my daughter, getting her ready and to school. Then coffee, I love coffee!

What are your recent designs inspired by? How difficult is it to keep coming up with new collections?

We are working on a more minimalistic collection now. And (I am) very excited, there are a lot of collaborations in the works and I am even working on furniture fabrics! Something that has been on my list for a long time.  

I always have new plans for new collections and I am always thinking of what is next before I present new work, so no. I think at this moment we have a lot of projects running at the same time, so there is always something to continue with or to finish. During the process of one design or collection I easily pick up new directions to continue with. So one project slowly goes over in the next collection. It is a continuous flow from one to the other.
