Flowers…. I’m extremely allergic to them. So I can’t have fresh flowers at home. Flowers on a pillow cover are, however, a good alternative for me. I don’t sneeze, don’t have red eyes and it makes my house look very stylish. What else does a girl wants ?
It’s been a while since I’ve posted something, but I’m still very busy with my interior design projects.
I made 2 style boards for my client in Germany both of them based on the rug they were planning to buy. And for my client in Hulten I’m struggling with designing the roof…..but the second floor plan is coming along very well. I’ll keep working on it !
This will be my next project. Trying to learn how to weave. My kids looked at me as if I came from another century…..
According to the many video tutorials I found on youtube, anyone can weave. So I thought I’d give it a go and try to weave my own tea towels.
Today I received the beautiful Swedish weaving yarns of Bjorkkulla. Creamy white and ice blue/grey. Can’t wait to start weaving on my Rigid heddle table loom ordered at Wolboerderij Blij Bezuiden. Thanks Mirjam (Bjorkkulla) and Janny (Wolboerderij) for your excellent advise.
When a project is finished, it’s always a pleasure we can take photos of the new interior.
Jaap-Klaas Hoekstein has taken these interior photos and the result is stunning. Not only I’m pleased with the result, but more important : my clients are very pleased with their new interior. They had beautiful art, photos and drawings which both their parents had made, but the ‘old’ interior setting did not do them right. With the new interior, wall color and furniture all art pops out and is a true pleasure to look at. They are enjoying it every day.
Although it is still beautiful weather and approx. 19 degrees, autumn is peeping around the corner. It’s cold in the morning and leaves are falling. Time to put away the summer styling decoration and go for autumn. I consider myself as a very creative person but I must admit I’m not so good in creating styling decorations. When I browse the internet looking for ideas to decorate my house, I’m always amazed of the creations people come up with. Truly amazing and ever so beautiful creations and landscapes. So I try to ‘copy’ some of those creations for my own home.
I don’t know why, but somehow (no matter how hard I try) my creations never look like the photo on the internet. Perhaps it’s because I just can’t find the exact plants, accessories, fruits, lamps. Or perhaps it’s because I’m allergic to living plants and flowers and I have to work with ‘fake’ ones. Or perhaps I just don’t have ‘it’ in me. I don’t know.
Anyway, this is how my new autumn decoration looks like. Okay, it’s not THAT spectacular, but I think it’s not so bad at all. What do you think ? Any suggestions for improvement ?
I’ve been quite busy for my clients at Hulten. I’ve made 5 different style propositions (Glamour, Modern, Country, Zweeds-Landelijk and Zweeds-Modern). I’ve also drawn some first impressions about how their kitchen/conservatory and living room could look like. Now it’s time to go deeper into my clients wishes and fine-tune !
Autumn is here and what better time then to make a pillow cover with this theme. In the forests in Sweden we’ve taken a lot of photo’s of mushrooms. Photo’s, my art board and a lot of patience kept me busy for some time converting them into drawings and making a pillow cover of it.
Winter is coming, the plaids and blankets come out of the closet, we light some candles and we relax on the couch with a good book and a glass of wine. And of course, a matching pillow is essential for this relaxing moment. So why not add a stylish note with my pillow cover with a photo of fire.
I’m getting all warmed up ! And how about you ?
