Color Collision sidetable

Bloesem Living | Kristie van Noort

The last time we looked at Kristie van Noort's works we were captivated by the beautiful range and pigments of her ceramics.

This time round her porcelain and ash wood sidetables are treated with the same pigments and processes as the ceramics and my, oh my, what a wonderful outcome!

If you, like us, had already fallen for the ceramics the first time around, then you should share our excitement for these sidetables. What's different from the other dipped colored furniture that we see so much is that the color is not painted on, and this way, it creates this natural texture and look of the pigments. Truly enthralling.

Also, the color combinations she uses for both the table and ceramics are perfection! two thumbs up!

Cherrywalls

Cherrys

Recently I went to a friend's home and saw that his family had put up a huge wall decal of a flower in their living room. That decal really brought a whole new life to the space considering how little effort it required to be put up. 

Decals fall into that same category of changing up your space on a budget. One online store that can help you do just that is Cherry Walls! They are a wall decor shop that you can find a huge range of decals in. From decals with quotes to decals of nature or even animals, you can find a decal for any personality type or room. Now that i knew how easy it was to actually put up a decal, my only other concern was whether it would cause any damage to the walls, or whether i could take it down if i wanted to replace the decal or paint the wall. No worries though! Cherry Walls uses a matte removable vinyl that comes off easily.

No fuss. No damage.  Just a cool removeable quote on your wall!
