Hellen van Berkel

Bloesem Living | Hellen van Berkel scarves

In 2012 we saw the colorful interiors of Hellen van Berkel's home, today she is back, with more of her beautiful heart made prints and scarves. Though she worked for Esprit for a many years, Hellen has always made scarves, treating each design as it were a painting. Coming out with a collection biannually, Hellen believes in quality over quantity and hope that others agree with her, that it's better to buy one nice thing that lasts a long time, rather than buying many that won't stand the test of time. To create the best products, she looks for the best quality materials and production methods all around the world.

Lately, Hellen has been working on some very special scarves she made for the Rijksmuseum, that have just been released for sale! 

Other than the scarves you see in her shop, Hellen also makes unique pieces for customers, like scarves made of wool embroidery on one side and silk on the other, and even pillows!

Lile Sadi

Bloesem Living | Lile Sadi 2014 collection

Lile Sadi has all kinds of exciting home accessories. The aim of their original textiles, wallpapers, and bevy of interior products, is to bring minimalism and joy into the homes of people, and I think their products definitely do that. I love that whatever you find in their online shop is unique. What I mean is that they carry bread boards, but instead of the usual shapes, it comes in the shape of a bear. How fun is that? 

Their prints are also featured in their wallpapers. The newest range is definitely something that will have us reaching for our wallets. The reoccuring bear print throughout their products is a really quirky take on animal prints, which I totally approve of for a wallpaper!

Bloesem Living | Lile Sadi 2014 collection

Last week we featured their Lile Sadi Petite collection on Bloesem Kids, and we totally reccommend the wallpapers for the rooms of the little ones too.  A fun way to decorate the room , and that you won't look back on and think " why did mom choose that wallpaper?! What was she thinking?" We've all thought that at one point of time, whether it's about a hair cut we had as a child or our fashion sense back then.

Famille Summerbelle

Bloesem Living | Famille Summerbelle

{1. Maximilien et Ludo Mug 2. Paris Tray 3. clown mugs 4. Boom le clown and flower tea towels 5. Paris map 6. Paris mug}

This half Uk half French site, brings the best of both cultures in their products. With Julie creating the designs and Simon running the business aspects of Famille Summerbelle, they have created a great site for interior design and decoration. 

We love the colorful and bold prints they offer. The bright blues, yellows and reds from their kitchen line would make any kitchen immediately more exciting ... aren't we all guilty of being "too safe" sometimes... buying things that can "go with everything". But Famille Summerbelle will help us be more adventurous and step out of the box!

Starting today Friday 29th november until monday 2nd December you can enjoy a 25% off everything on their site!!

ps. All the products come beautifully wrapped and the tea towels and cushions are packed in a new Famille Summerbelle custom made foldable box.

Orphan Socks

Bloesem Living | Orphan socks

{1. equilateral nails  2. brass pot stand 3. soki silhouettes necklace 4. book darts }

Today we shine the light on Orphan Socks. This brilliant website is an eclectic mix of items. It's Amsterdam-based and collects and sells unique and personal designs. 

Orphan Socks stands for exceptional ordinariness for simple design, but not without an air of cool elegance. They sell a balanced blend of modest and accessible design where craftsmanship and small brands are more important than transient trends and established names.

The site along with its products, give me the vibe of a really upscale flea market. Let me explain! It has this sense of mystery and excitement, like I am not going to expect what great finds are hidden within! Also I like how the designs are really different and "less mainstream" in "hipster talk". All in all, the experience of browsing through their site is more like a treasure hunt and less of a tab-opening-and-immediate-closing process i usually go through when online shopping.

If you are still wondering how they got their name...

"In the meanwhile we love big city urban life but can also smile about small domestic phenomena like that one sock piece in your laundry ..."

The New Domestic

Bloesem Living | The New Domestic

{1. hemp linen 2. wool-slippers 3. khadi blanket 4. striped apron 5. bon journey bag }

The New Domestic is a homeware line designed for domestic living. What the site states is that they combine functionality and style, and we think thats exactly what they do!

From blankets to aprons to art prints, they have the things you need to beautify your home. Even if it wasn't the holiday season, when everyone's going to be visiting your house, this would be a great site to look for beautiful homeware.

Bloesem Living | The New Domestic

One of their recently launched products is the handpainted tiffin carriers. Every one of them handmade and handpainted. All that work definitely paid off! Look at the beautiful traditional floral motif, reminds me of the vintage tiffin carriers my grandmother used to have. Like their website promises, not only does the tiffin carrier look good, it is also very functional. The 3 individual tiers help keep meal components neatly separated to keep things crisp.

A great product to help cut down on the number of plastic take out boxes we use. Also packing food to school or the office in this can help save money on buying lunch, or even help you start making healthier food choices.
