Today's inspiration

As the most of you know I moved to Stockholm about a month ago and next week I will finally move into my new apartment. I'm looking so forward to do it *smile of happiness*.
In the mean while I spend hours imagining how I'm gonna decorate the new apartment. Today's search lead to my future desk office. Don't you love the HAY hand holding the lamp? Great idea from Elisabeth the blogger behind PURE INTERIOR.
More pictures of the great styling she did for the NIB (Norwegian interior bloggers) Home office here.
Have a nice day!

Essential Eames by Herman Miller

Charles and Ray Eames are statement in the design world. Two of the most inspiring and creative designers I truly admire.
A year ago I was in Singapore and very lucky to be able to attend The Essential Eames by Herman Miller exposition in the  Art Science Museum, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. I've never got the chance to blog about it but I still wanted to share a bit of my impressions and some of the pictures I took. Such beautiful work they left behind.

My love for Eames products started when i felt in love for the RAR rock chair but until now I didn't found the house or the perfect corner to place it. 
When we, two years ago moved to Japan for a two year assignment I grab my chance and a week before we left I order two DAW chairs at Designerchairs24.
They arrived just two days before our flight, so we carried them with us and by plane from Amsterdam to Japan. I always have to laugh when I think about this story. I have to say they were the first furniture items we got in our new apartment. At least we could seat *smile*. 
Now we just moved back to Europe and this time to Stockholm. We are living even a bit smaller than in Japan (how is that possible?! Yes it is) so during the first year we won't be able to have our DAW
 chairs here so I've been thinking about buying two DSW chairs.

While pondering I saw that Designerchairs24 were offering two DSW chairs to bloggers who would write a post on Eames.  So here it is.
Sometimes you don't have to say much, because images already say enough, right? As Charles Eames once said: "Yes. But did you get pictures?"

Happy Valentine's Day

Isn't everyday just the perfect day to celebrate your love story? Why do the most people keep holding on to this one day in the year? Why don't we choose to show the ones we love how much they mean for us and how much we care every single day? The time is now! 
 Seize the day!

Love at the first sight!

A few years ago I visited Sweden for the first time and I felt in love! I mean I truly, madly, deeply, felt in love with the city, the language, the people, the smell, the water, the parks, the design, the creativity, the food and so on... Since then I've come back every year and I've been dreaming of living there. Now that I know, that this is gonna happen in the near future I'm dreaming of a beautiful apartment. And this one would be just perfect. The only minus is that this apartment is situated in Gothenburg and I'm moving to Stockholm. But ohhhh what a beauty. I just love everything!!

Great how the natural sunlight falls inside. 

Love the high ceiling,

the long and bright kitchen,

 the white floor

and everything else.

Can you feel the Spring in this balcony, calling and saying that it's again time to let him in?

In one woord - Gorgeous! Looking forward to move to Sweden and hopefully I will find some place like this. Fingers crossed!!!!!!
Have a great monday!

Depot Rotterdam

Before moving to Japan I lived for more than 10 years in Rotterdam. So at least once a year I come back to visit family, friends and my favourite spots in town.
And one of my favourite shops is without any doubt Depot Rotterdam, an interior and design studio situated in the city center, in a very nice and cozy neighbourhood, known as the Soho of Rotterdam.
This is the perfect shop for design lovers, where you can find beautiful interior design items from famous and not so famous designers.
Last week I was there and every time I go there I fall in love again… Can you see why? If you happen to be in the neighbourhood a must go!
Have a great tuesday!

In love with this paper vase from Pepe Heykoop
