ENVELOPE I-PAD SLEEVE

envbag2.jpg

I’m loving these stylish leather envelope i-pad sleeves! Hand made by ANVE, a small label whose aim is to make objects that stay with their owners and become more beautiful with life. ANVE: “We draw our inspiration from discovery tours through Lisbon, a beautiful old city full of hidden workshops and warehouses. Our past lives in places like Basel and Vienna have certainly influenced our way to look at things.”

Everything in their shop is handmade with love — either crafted with the help of small local manufacturers or created in their own studio.

A SMALL APARTMENT IN GOTHENBURG

This lovely apartment looks spacious but this two room home in Gothenburg, Sweden, measures only 50m2. I love how limited space is used and the decoration is just beautiful. Is this your dream home? Lucky you: it is for sale!

AN OLD FACTORY BECOMES A MODERN CITY HOME

An old crumbling industrial building has been transformed into a modern and spacious home in Berlin, Germany. The owners had the almost impossible dream of of finding a haven in the middle of the city: a bright and spacious house with a garden for the children play in. Thanks to Miethe + Quehl, the architectural firm that is responsible for the renovation of the factory building, they succeeded in realizing this dream. The owners’ Scandinavian roots are reflected in the interior design. Various Scandinavian design classics can be found in the light and spacious rooms.

These lovely Ibiza poufs are almost sold out. The last ones are now available with a discount. I could not resist keeping a large pouf and some smaller ones for myself.. These images here are all shot in my home.

WHITE ARMCHAIR: DESIGNER BRAND OR IKEA?

ghostchair.jpg

I am looking for a white armchair for my son’s bedroom that I’m redecorating. I love the Gost armchair (top image) designed by Paola Navone for Gervasoni. It has been on my wish list for a long time. But this chair comes with a price tag (around 2000 EUR). An alternative is the chair featured in the image below, which is the Ektorp chair from IKEA (199 EUR). Not as beautiful but a hell of a lot cheaper..
