Nell & Mary

Bloesem Living | Quick Start: Nell & Mary

As much as we are big fans of bold and bright prints and patterns, we cannot help but to swoon over these simple playful printed home accessories in the freshest colour scheme...A Portland, Oregon based design studio with a passion for textiles, Nell & Mary offers a range of environmentally and socially conscious goods (totes, pouches, pillows, tea towels...) all sewn and screen printed by hand. 

It's strange, in a good way of course, that we are appreciating much more of the details of each print design like never before through their choice of using subtle pops of colour in each of their products. We are definitely smitten with what we are seeing so far over here...

And, we are so glad that they recently opened their own retail store, North of West... A design-driven mercantile carrying over 40 brands with products that they carefully selected and are incredibly passionate about, we think this shop is not to be missed if any of you are heading to Portland, Oregon!

Anecdote

Bloesem living | Shop Stop: Anecdote in Amsterdam

One of the first stores I popped into while in Amsterdam was Anecdote. A beautiful store as it is, was made amazing with the help of gorgeous morning light. Clothes right up my alley, exquisite interiors and welcoming staff made the perfect first experience.

Despite the success of the label, the Anecdote team has focused their efforts on their only store which is located along Wolvenstraat 15. At the same time they stock their pieces in their online store along with several multi-level boutiques across the world.

There is strength in a name like Anecdote, that everyone can understand and relate to, no matter where you come from. And honestly, what a perfect name it is.. it's no wonder their best selling item is the basic sweater with just the word "Anecdote" on it.

Get to know Anecdote in this super quick "5 things":

ONE: Many people mistake Anecdote for a Scandinavian or French label but they are proudly from Amsterdam.

TWO: Anecdote is a collection of easy to wear pieces, all day wear, so comfy you won't want to take them off. It's every occasion wear, taking you from home to the office and out for post-work drinks.

.. More about Anecdote after the cut.

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
