Class recap: Instafood in Amsterdam

Bloesem living | Class recap: Instafood- food styling and mobile photography class in Amsterdam, March 2015

Along with the class in Amsterdam we announced a giveaway in collaboration with Viamartine. The best photograph taken during the class would receive a poster of their instagram shots from Viamartine and we are happy to finally announce the winner is Suzanne!

Thank you Martine for your generous prize for our Bloesem class student, we hope it motivates everyone to keep going with all the new skills they picked up during the class.

Of course there were so many beautiful shots to choose from and it was quite a challenge just picking one but Trisha Toh and the Bloesem team had a great time looking through the images.. there is so much potential!

Here is a little recap of some scenes from the class. Our favourite time to snap away is when our students are fully focused on getting the shot!

Trisha Travels: Around Berlin

Bloesem living | City Guide: Berlin

Don't you like reading city guides? For us, city guides are a joy to flip through because even if it were a guide to a city we have lived in, we love seeing it from a different perspective and seeing how other people, whether tourists or locals, see the city. Here we have Trisha Toh, who hails from Malaysia, sharing with us a few spots she visited while she traveled around Europe.

Along with the two other cities Trisha visited, Berlin was another must-visit. We're sure this will whet your appetite for the city of Berlin. The next step is to book your tickets there but of course there is plenty of time for that after your go through the city guide. We are awestruck by the architecture, the cafes, the culture and of course much more that the city has to offer. 

Follow along with Trisha's European journey in the Bloesem Gazette " The Conversation Issue". 

To read the other city guides in this series: London & Barcelona

Fun fact: MUR is French for ripe. It is also the name for the webshop that we are currently ogling.. Started by a husband and wife duo, MUR lifestyle is the place to go if you are one who loves home goods and kitchen accessories produced by small scale manufacturers, artisans and designers who want to move away from the "disposable culture".

Link Love

Bloesem living | Friday link love

Love the light and soft hues used throughout this Melbourne apartment.. And don't you think the copper side table makes such a great contrast with the colour scheme of the room? 

Weaving, textiles and housewares by New Friends.

Newest cafe in Amsterdam.. Stooker Roasting Co.

A home built inside a wall of stone.. believe it.

Watercolour easter egg..

Alchemy-inspired design..

Swedish students show us the true meaning on minimalism.

Welcoming Cluse watches to the store..

The Bloesem Team is deeply saddened and wishes to express our condolences to the family of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew and the people of Singapore. He was indeed a great man.

Carmen Von Trueba

Bloesem living | Get to face to face with designer Carmen Von Trueba

Early last year, we started seeing alot of amazing poster and prints online and we even shared one such collection. Remember the Veggie collection by Von Trueba? Yes the ones with the amazing leaves that have been a hit everywhere.. people are really loving the leaves nowadays. Of course flowers are classic but leaves are a nice change.. but before we get too carried away.. we thought we'd introduce you to the young talent behind the Von Trueba prints, Carmen. 

Hi Carmen, tell us a little about yourself.

I was born in Murcia (Spain), and after years drawing and traveling I decided that Architecture could be my thing. I graduated from the Polytechnic University of Valencia, where I also won awards and prizes for design, art, and innovation.

Nowadays I am based in London, and have several platforms where I show my designs (inspired by geometry and materials), and illustrations.

Could you share with us 3 of your favourite spots in your city?

 My favourite spots in London are: Shoreditch, Southbank and Kensington gardens.

Are there any design hangouts or places you can go to meet other creates where you live?

Here in London it is rare not to always have something to do or somewhere to go to. You have to be tuned in because there is always something going on, sometimes is stressful because I dont want to miss anything.

More about Carmen after the cut..
