From desks to the designs you see here, we believe you guys share our love for Kellie's (aka Buisjes en Beugels +++ ) design aesthetic. Her NEW homewares are off the beaten path and truly a breath of fresh air.
Right off our recent post on chopping boards, we have to say Kellie's design is definitely out of the box. The graphic lines and shapes of the chopping boards make them pieces of kitchen art!
Kellie originally started out designing kids fashion, with her two children as her muses and little models but with her origins in product design, it was a matter of time she came back to her roots! Along with her other award winning designs (In 2009 she designed INSEKT desk, in 2011 it was ready to be launched on the international market and in 2013 it became the IMM Interior Innovation Award Winner!), Buisjes En Beugels +++ webshop also hosts a number of guests labels.

The weekend didn't end very well for my ... felt sick on Sunday and woke up during the night with a very painful throat ... I don't like feeling sick especially now with the preparations of my new studio and the busy Holiday Season ... a million things to do. But I need to stay in bed for a couple of days... luckily i have some wonderful help from Zara S. and we are able to continue posting like normal.
Being in bed all day makes me long for nice bed sheets like these ...
Nuée from Belgium has introduced their line of linen beddings, Cloud. Consisting of a wide range of colors that all blend in with the white of the linen.
Each color on its own already blows my mind but the way they have styled four different colors of bedding in one shot is just pure magic. I can't whether i would personally have 4 different colors on my bed at one time but i would love to own all the colors and use them in rotation. They are the dream.
The images in their gallery showcase the different colors and styles of dip dye bedding. Not only are the shots and bedding drool-worthy, they also have this dream-like, calming quality, which is great for bedtime (or nap time, it doesn't matter if you are a grown up with a job, we all want/need a nap sometime).

Hi, good morning this is Christine from House of C treating you to some real splashes of color this Monday morning! These amazing images are by DAN300, an Australian (home) accessories brand founded by Dani Rosen. Generous cushions, amazing kaleidoscope rugs in various sizes, lovely stationary and - my favorite - pretty A4 art prints (just a perfect match for your Ikea Ribba frame). Don't you just love the retro designs and catchy colors, I know I do!

Hi, good morning, this is Christine from House of C . Hope you've had a happy weekend and are ready to start this week at Bloesem with some lovely accessories from Sydney, Australia.
Please meet The Print Society, a homewares and accessories label from Australia. Cozy cushions made from natural fabrics such as hemp and linen. The Asian and Scandinavian influences of the designs make them real wanna haves, don't you think. Geometric forms, lots of color and a great eye for detail. Such a great example of how a small label can make a big impact!

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!

Hi, morning everyone! It's Zara starting a new week here at Bloesem Living ... everyone loves having some fresh flowers around the house, they brighten the house up and make us happy when we catch sight of them while we rush about through out the day. Sadly, no matter how well we take care of fresh flowers, we have to face the harsh reality that they don't last long and soon we are left with a brown unsightly arrangement.
This year the Jorine Oosterhoff has came up with Paperflowers which were based on the concept of flowers you can keep forever... and that is exactly what I would do with these beautiful designs! They come in so many colors, designs and patterns, and would look gorgeous in any home! (especially somebody like me, with no ability to keep any kind of plants alive!)
Let's not forget about the amazing bubblevases the paperflowers are captured in in these photos! Inspired by soap bubbles, Jorine set out to capture their temporary beauty in these vases. Jorine captures the short-lived beauty of both the soap bubbles and flowers perfectly, we can't take our eyes of them!
Merging food and fantasy, her landscape cutlery would be great tools for getting children to eat their food.
Last year Bloesem was lucky enough to meet the duo from Burojet, Jorine Oosterhoff and Egbert-Jan Lam. Check out the interview and home tour here...
