STITCHES BY MENU

stitches-menu-1

Stitches is a beautiful new dish ware collection designed by Gry Fager for Danish brand Menu. The design is based on the old fashioned cross-stitching technique but the collection has a very modern and contemporary feel to it. Cross-stitching is a big part of the Danish handicraft tradition, and something closely tied to the family as it is often learned from unbelievably patient grandmothers.

A COZY WOODEN NORWEGIAN HOME

Norwegian-summer-house-1-600

This beautiful wooden house in Holtet Hageby, Norway, was built in the 1920′s. Owner Vigdis A.Bergh, an interior designer, kept the original charm of the house and added modern touches during the extensive renovation. The house is light and airy. This is achieved by keeping the base white. In Northern countries such as Norway there is limited day light during winter time. By keeping walls and floors white you can let as much day light in as possible. Similar cluster lights (top picture) are available from Kathleen Hills.

DUTCH TEXTILE DESIGNER MAE ENGELGEER

maeengelgeer-1

I love the work of Mae Engelgeer, a textile designer from The Netherlands. In her studio located in the city centre of Amsterdam looking out over the canal she designs her collections. The developments and productions of the fabrics take place at the TextileLab in Tilburg. She likes to design colorful and eye catching products which are like a piece of art in any interior. My favorite is the ISH. collection. This beautiful series of textiles consisting of blankets and teas towels have a graphic pattern, combined with the use of thin stripes in pop color orange and copper.

MASTERCLASS STYLING & PHOTOGRAPHY

mc-styling-1

Last week on Wednesday night I came back from holiday and at 8:00 the next morning I was in the train to Utrecht for the Masterclass Styling & Photography organized by Meet The Blogger. The workshop was given by AnoukB, a well-known stylist, interior designer and fashion & interior consultant, and photographer, stylist and blogger Wendy from Beeldsteil. The location, De Toonkamer in Utrecht, was wonderful. I loved the industrial style setting (aren’t those exposed walls beautiful?!).The first session I attended was the styling class. We were given a winter hat from YaYa and some magazines. The assignment was first to make a mood board and then create a styling set. The theme for the set was ‘easy winter’ and the winter hat should have a (prominent) place in this. During the photography session in the afternoon we got some great tips which I used for photographing my styling set. Here you can see the result: images 1, 2, and 5 show my styling set. On the fourth image you can see Desiree from VosgesParis in action.
