10 home accessories to make

Bloesem living | 10 minimal home accessory DIYs to try

No 1. Wooden hairpin leg lap desk

Making your own home accessories is a great way to personalize your home, as well as do something different, that not anyone can go out and buy. Sometimes it can also mean saving a whole lot of ka-ching. We gathered 10 of our favourite home accessory DIY projects. You might notice a few themes running through all of them.. we seem to be pro-wood and copper, but who isn't! They are just gorgeous accents in a space.

Taking great photos

Bloesem living | What it takes to take a great photograph

Taking good photographs is way more than just having a fancy camera.. sometimes people forget that. You need to have that special talent of being able to capture a scene, frame it and shoot it and bring across an emotion through your photography. Understanding your subject and your camera are two big parts of getting a great shot (oh, don't forget styling, it's crucial!).

Earlier this year while Jennifer Young was in Singapore, she taught a Bloesem master class on understanding your DSLR. An introduction to everything you need to know about your camera and the rules to photography.. Since then, we've definitely been practising our skills (hopefully we're improving) but it got us thinking about Jennifer's photography again. It's the kind of images that gives you the feels, if you know what we mean.. and tells a story. Well, "a picture speaks a thousand words" definitely encapsulates Jennifer's photography..

She shoots lifestyle, portraits, food, travel.. we're blown away.

As people who enjoy creating things ourselves, we truly appreciate the handmade pieces in Yonder. Along with her own series of ceramics, artist and founder of Yonder, Linda Fahey, curates a collection of pieces in the store, each with it's own story to tell. Located in Pacifica, California, visitors can find a cosy space filled with unique items gathered from a community of creators.

If you feel like the items you see here give you a relaxed and beauty feel then you are spot on! The artisan-goods at Yonder are inspired by the spirit of the northern beaches.

5 Singaporean Instagrammers

In celebration of Singapore's 50th birthday, we have a very special edition of our weekly #B.Instagood column. Here's 5 Singaporean Instagrammers we think are doing Instagram right! If we were to say the words that came to our minds when we think about Singaporean instagrammers they would have to be food and fashion but these 5 definitely cover a bit of every category there is in terms of Instagram photography.
