This week Le Souk is offering a 25% discount on these hand crocheted rugs (available in 2 sizes) and on the hand knitted rug/blanket. This offer is valid until 4 June or until supply lasts (only a few left available!).
The crocheted rug has been featured in many interior magazines such as VT Wonen and it was also used in the VT Wonen booth on the Woonbeurs last year.
Today I’m loving … this rocket garland created by Guusje’s Appeltaart for Oh My! Handmade Goodness. You can find a tutorial for making this garland yourself here. Great for a little boy’s room!
It is hot and sunny here in The Netherlands so I definitely have summer on my mind! For this type of weather I like bright colored accessories like the ones featured in this ‘summer mood board’. The big stone bracelet is from Le Souk and is available in various summer colors.
If you’d like to make braided friendship bracelets like the ones featured above, you can find a good tutorial here.
I have posted about Peacock Pavilions in Marrakech, Morocco, before but Lonny magazine published a beautiful story about Peacock Pavilions and I had to share these images with you. Maryam did such a wonderful job decorating her stunning guest house, don’t you think? You can read the entire article in Lonny Magazine here.

Another sunny post today as I am in summer mood. Finally we are having some beautiful sunny weather here in The Netherlands! This colorful home is located on Salina, one of the Aeolian Islands (Italy). This is the island where almost every house on the island has sea view.

Today’s post features a gorgeous home on Ibiza, Spain. The outdoor areas are wonderful and very inviting. I love spending time outdoors and only wish we had a climate like in Spain so we could spend more time outside.
A note to readers wanting to rent a holiday home like this one: I only feature these gorgeous houses on my blog and I don’t know if the houses are for rent. I often receive messages from people saying that they want to rent the house and even giving me the exact dates. I am not a travel agent!

Houseboats are quite common in The Netherlands, especially in Amsterdam where you can find many houseboats along the canals (there are even houseboat hotels!). Most boats are spacious and stylish. Once inside you often don’t realize being on a boat. Only the movement of the water underneath you reminds that you are not on land.

Although it is still chilly outside, we are heading towards summer. Time for some outdoor inspiration! These images, shot by Dutch photographer Jeroen van der Spek, were featured in last year’s summer issue of interior magazine VT Wonen. I like the black & white theme which (to my surprise) creates a summery vibe.
Below some suggestions for creating a similar look:
1. Acapulco chair, 2. Zig Zag tote, 3. La Sardina camera, 4. VAGO chair from IKEA, 5. beach towel from Missoni, 6. rattan tote, 7. dress from Billabong.
Black & white paper lanterns.
