Guest Post: Blues + Greens


Hi everyone and greetings from Canada!  It's Jan from Poppytalk and I too, am so saddened by Irene's loss and of course was more than happy to do a post here while she is away. Big hugs Irene!

When wondering what I could write about for one of my favorite blogs, Bloesem, I ran into a splash of beautiful blues and greens via Marcus Hay's Blue/Green board over on Pinterest and was immediately drawn in.  I think what I am most inspired by is the hue (especially the chalkboard paint version) on the wall.  The effect for a wall mixed with blue fabrics and accessories really makes for an inviting space don't you think? It also works on furniture (like that chair in the photo above).

Here are a few green and blue images for inspiration, would you paint a wall a dark green like this? I just might. ~Jan

Guest Post: A little bit of Sunshine


This is Danielle  from The Style Files and I am guest blogging on Bloesem while Irene is going through a very sad time. Writing about interior related things might seem unimportant at times like this. But I know that Irene, like me, wants to spread beauty and positivity into the world with her blog. Which is why I have chosen to show you interiors with a splash of yellow, which is a happy and positive color. Life can be difficult and with this post I aim to bring a glimpse of sunshine to you all but especially to those who, like Irene, are going through tough times. Irene, I wish you and your family lots of strength dealing with this terrible loss. ~ Danielle

Guest Post: Fiddle Leaf Fig


Hello Bloesem readers, I'm Victoria from sfgirlbybay. I wish I were here under happier circumstances and my thoughts go out to Irene and her family in this most difficult of times. But I'm honored to be here filling in for Irene today, and I thought I'd offer up a guest post about life and beautiful living things, particularly the Fiddle Leaf Fig. I'm somewhat obsessed with these trending trees right now, and I really am not sure exactly why. They've just captured by heart, and I love the way they grow strong and yet quite flexible -- the Fiddle Leaf Fig grows into its environment, shaping its branches around the curve of a room. I like that idea. Here's a few of my favorite views, from small and eager to grow, to voluminous trees living happily indoors.

some 'house essentials' from Tiffany...


Irene asked me to do a post about some of the things I liked this week, and I have to admit I felt really nervous about it. I don't want to disappoint. As you know I just bought my first house, so I have so many things I like running through my head, that it keeps me up at night. Let's see how I do…

Something for the outdoors...a practical guide to the essentials of beekeeping.


Something romantic for my bedroom...a ceramic victorian bell.


Something necessary turned lovely...a beautiful cloth extension cord.

Thanks Irene, this was fun!
