Finishing touch at home

By | interior & design | No Comments

The end of all hard work in our new house is coming closer!

Evertything is painted, walls have been build, new windows have been placed etc. Now it’s time for the finishing touch. Getting everything cosy and with a personal touch. I know this takes time. Just live in your home and it will turn into your warm and cosy nest. We are still in search for some missing pieces like, curtains, roofterras furniture, lamps and more. I like these chairs in black for our attic working space and for storage of books I like the simple wooden boxes on the wall, like these ones.

As soon as it’s finished I will post some photos how it all turned out! Above images I collected on Tumblr for inspiration. Sources and more images can be found at my Tumblr.

Three ladies with a (delicous) mission: Broodnuchter ‘Culinairy Creative Collective from Rotterdam’

By | food & recipies | One Comment

These three ladies have an appetite for good stories about food and a hunger for sharing these stories with you. (Sophia; photographer, Dore; writer & presenter, Daphne; journalist)

With Broodnucher they are discovering Rotterdam through it’s  inhabitants and their love for food. They are interviewing, filming and photographing the dishwasher from a Michelin star restaurant, the owner of the best coffee spot in Rotterdam or students doing their groceries in search for a unique story.

Check out their website; Broodnuchter and join them on Facebook!

Looking forward to cosy moments

By | treats & treasures | 3 Comments

I can’t wait for the moment when our home is finished, the job is done, going on pregnancy leave and find time and peace of mind to get cosy and cuddled up at home.

Would love to make a good dinner at home, getting into the kitchen and get my hands dirty, pancakes for breakfast, a sweet autumn pie, homemade bread with nuts and raisins, spicy pumpkin soup, a nice stew that takes hours on the stove. And reading books, lots of them. Any recommandations for good reads are very welcome!

Everything planned next year!

Because I can be a scatterbrain I need to write things down on planners and to do lists. For me this works. Love the new planners, notebooks and diaries by Marjolein Delhaas. I already know my new planner for 2013 will come in very handy.

My world will probably be turned upside down in the beginning of 2013 with a little baby girl coming into our world. Some organisation to get a bit of  daily routine will be very welcome.

To get yourself organised next year you can buy  the beautifull planners and Two Thousand Thirteen diaries by Marjolein Delhaas here.

The room for la petite inspired by our trip in Argentina

By | graphic eye candy, interior & design | 2 Comments

The room for the baby is a cosy corner room with lots of light because of three large windows with stained glass. It has white wooden floor and white walls. The rest is up to us to decorate and make it  a pretty and comfortable room for our little girl.

The room is  inspired by our trip into the Andes near Salta, Argentina where we visited the Valley of the Cacti. The stuffed cactus I bought over there (her first baby toy  ^_^) The curtains will be made by Iefke de Roos. She will dye and print the fabric like the bags that I sell at minishop Confetti. It’s hard to choose; feather or cactus? Pink or green? It does not have to be all girly so I prefer the cactus, my love prefers the feathers (what do you think?)

We found the rug in El Cafayate. The lamp is the ‘chestnut origami lamp’ by Snowpuppe and the super cute ‘Rainy day mini blanket’ by Donna Wilson.

I could not choose between Mabel the giraff or Ander, the lion is from Miga the Pan. I choose Ander, the lion, he is a bit handicaped because he misses one ear, but it makes him much less dangerous and better to keep her company while sleeping. The baby bed we found after searching for something else then everything you find at babystores is the ‘crisis bed’ by Piet Hein Eek. I love it!

We are still looking for a nice dresser. Any reccomandations are very welcome. At this moment I am thinking of a second hand piece and paint it in a nice colour. I love the paint by Studio IJM.

Little baby bump

By | Uncategorized | 9 Comments

This photo was taken yesterday on a lazy sunday morning. There is a little girl on her way and we can’t wait to meet her. Already almost 7 months pregnant. We are preparing our new home for the little one. I feel her moving and kicking more and more each day. I have been feeling pretty well the last months and am looking forward to the last few weeks (which also start to feel heavier), excited to get everything ready.

And the great thing is that I am pregnant togehter with my sister, only 12 days apart! How special to have our kids almost or maybe exactly the same age!
