I start in Singapore...

Monday, 7 January 2013 by Irene Hoofs


a new day, a new year, a new beginning ... I am very much looking forward to an exciting New Year at Bloesem. The focus will be more on in-depth original content –  Like I said last week on BKids : ... I like spending more time making nice posts than tweeting, facebooking and pinning ... this social media rat-race has taken me away from the thing I really love to do and that is finding and making nice content for my blogs! I want Bloesem to stay true to her roots: passionate about design!

So starting today I will only share things that have meaning to me and preferably content that I have helped making... like the images you see today.

My dear friend Marjon and I were on an assigment last year in Singapore making a city guide for Anthology magazine. Two shops we really enjoyed visiting were Foundry, one of my absolute favorite furniture shops in town. Why you might ask? Well I really like the brands they carry and the way they have displayed them in their showroom.

Like the green wall below is such an inspiration for me. I would never have thought a color like that would look so beautiful on a wall and I will keep it in mind for any future home. [CONTINUE READING]

A completely different but must-visit shop in Singapore is the little dröm store ... the cutest gallery shop carrying items from many designers and artists you probably have seen in blog land from time to time. . 


Some cute little pins caught my attention while snooping around in the little dröm store ... founder Alexandra Wong was kind enough to explain to me where the designs came from ..supposedly Singapore has some hidden treasures throughout the country namely some amazing 'vintage' playgrounds with cool sculptures all made from mosaic tiles... truly pieces of art just like the little pins, great remembrance from their past. I really liked the like graphic details on the card. 


So I hope you like my first post of 2013?

Marjon and I have many more images from shops in beautiful Singapore ... drop me an email if you would like to publish them in your magazine or else.
