M O O D Dream a little dream

It’s not just black & white and grey anymore

Naturally there’s some brown present in the wooden furniture and accessories

But more off whites and brown hues are coming in

Brown offers a nice and friendly contrast

Lovely in combination with grey, soft tones and vintage finds

 The new Bollard lamp by Shane Schneck for Menu fits here perfectly

Actually the whole Menu catalogue 14|15 is one big wish list..

Ikea Valje Storage System





Ikea Valje Storage System

Lately I’m in a clean up kind of mood. Sorting out stuff from my attic and find new ways to stay organized. This new storage series Valje by Ikea would be of good use. Minimal, practical and beautiful. A perfect combination I’d say. A simple click system makes it easy to install the cupboards, shelves and boxes. Love the colors and styling too! Available in stores next month.

Workshop How to start a blog





Workshop How to start a blog

Last year I was asked to share my blog story during the Meet the Blogger workshop How to start a blog?. I really enjoyed to inspire and stimulate the participants to start their own blog. Each for their own reason: to inspire, share a passion or to reinforce a business or webshop. I shared my experiences and called it my Blog Journey. A journey because I’m still learning and growing. That’s what makes blogging so attractive! It became a personal story about my very first blogpost in 2005 to where I am today with my blog beeldSTEIL. The value of authenticity, personal branding and visual style. 

The attendees were very enthusiastic which means that we will repeat the workshop in Rotterdam on Thursday 5 February. Kirsten Jassies, blogcoach and content strategist at justK, will share her valuable tips on how to create a successful blog. Laura de Jong, social media expert and community manager at Meet the Blogger and vtwonen, challenges you to create a smart social media strategie. Beside the workshop there’s time to ask questions, meet the other (upcoming) bloggers and exchange ideas.

Is a (new) blog on your wish list? Are you in need of some fresh inspiration and useful tips for your existing blog?

Start your own blog journey, come and join us.

The workshop takes place from 10h to 17h on a beautiful location: De Fabriek van Delfshaven in Rotterdam

Gelderland Furniture






Gelderland Furniture

As we speak Dutch furniture company Gelderland presents its collection at the IMM Cologne. This year in a warm and inviting atmosphere. A place where every visitor of Design Post will feel at home. A blend of warm colors combined with soft materials provide a relaxed and comfortable feeling. Gelderland stimulates the creation of a personal and modern style of living. Which is reflected in the many opportunities. With a flexible modular sofa, lounge chairs, dinning chairs and a pouf. In addition there is a wide choice of colors, fabrics and materials. Paying close attention to detail, comfort and quality.

During the fair successful existing models will be presented. Such as the 6905 modular sofa by Scholten & Baijings. A young and talented design duo that created a powerful concept with attention to craftsmanship and functionality. And a characteristic interior can’t do without a real design classic. Designed by Jan des Bouvrie during the seventies, lounge chair Meneer Oberman: a real eye catcher!


Botanic Trend

Greens should not be missed in a cozy interior. I’m pleased the botanic trend is back and still relevant. Plants provide a healthy environment and a beautiful contrast in a modern interior. Since a couple of years I’m the happy owner of a Gelderland 6905 sofa in chocolate brown. Which fits well with the succulents and cactuses in my home and provide a comfy and more personal look in a mainly white interior. You can make a statement with one big plant or create a collection of small greens.


Latest models at the IMM Cologne

During this edition of the IMM Cologne there’s special attention to the latest models and the extension of the successful 4800 series. Designer Henk Vos stands for minimalism. Simple, clean and timeless. Reflected in a new model the 4800 Cl XL, an extension of the famous and popular 4800 series. Only two modular elements are needed to arrange a beautiful corner sofa. The slim and graceful legs were already available in aluminum. New is the ability to perform the legs in black.

The new 7805 series by Jan des Bouvrie is inviting and comfortable. He has been working for Gelderland for 35 years now. This designer is responsible for several well-known designs. New Illusion is equipped with the familiar solid foundation but comes with a surprising new look. The large flexible cushions are casual yet stylish.



Organic Forms

Besides straight lines there’s a focus on organic forms as well. The new collection 7830 is reminiscent of the Scandinavian trend, which is still in progress. Simplicity, shape and finish are decisive. Dick Spierenburg designed a collection with a modern and friendly appearance. The wooden legs are mounted directly to the metal frame. A construction which ensures strength and durability. This series includes a sofa, armchair and pouf available in both fabric and leather.


Lifestyle Objects

Stool Particle is now available in two new variants. Previously there was the 7660 model, striking because of the use of a special folding technique. A particular lifestyle object emerged from a creative collaboration between designers Ferry Meewisse en Tom Dissel. This time Tom Dissel is solely responsible for the design of the 7665 and 7666. Attention to shape, material and detail characterize the products of this young designer. The stools invite to experiment and give the interior a quirky and playful character.

M O O D Slow Sunday

Sundays are meant to take it easy

But nowadays my weekends are for working

In between I take a moment to relax

Trough running & yoga

And reading

Accompanied by a healthy lunch

A slow Sunday moment I love

Wish you all a lovely day!

Stylish Coisa Shawl






Stylish Coisa Shawl

By far my favourite way to stay warm this winter: hidden in a soft Coisa shawl in dark grey. Made of 100% wool, big enough to wear it both as a shawl and wrap. Actually, there are many ways to wear it. Sometimes I even use it as a small blanket. It’s not an extreme cold winter in The Netherlands so far, I miss the snow.. On rainy days, it’s a bit chilly though. Previous winters I wore heavy woolen vests, now I prefer layers. Dutch brand Coisa designs unique scarves in limited editions. Made of exclusive yarns from Italy. All shawls and cols are manufactured fair trade in small studios in Portugal, Turkey, Belgium and the Netherlands. A Coisa shawl is stylish, timeless and very comfortable.


Free Coisa Col or Men

If you could use some extra warmth this is your chance. If you place an order in the online shop within the next two weeks you will receive a Coisa Col or Men for free. For yourself or to make someone else happy. Coisa always delivers the products beautifully packaged in a cardboard giftbox. When you buy a product (with a minimum purchase amount of 65 euro) in the online shop you will receive a free Coisa Col or Men in a color of your choice. Use the code ‘Beeldsteil’ when ordering your shawl and devine both your choice and the code in the ‘details’ section. This offer runs until 28 January 2015.

Bright Kitchen Inspiration





Bright Kitchen Inspiration

Guess these long and grey winter days made me long for some bright interior inspiration. This kitchen got my eye because of the light and open atmosphere. It’s part of a total transformation of a Victorian home in Melbourne, Australia. Designed by Annabelle Berryman and Sarah Henry of Studio Four. I find the neutral colour palette of white and grey in combination with a touch of nature in the pale timber very beautiful.

We chose American oak because of its soft colour and uniform grain, and also because it was suitable for the combined kitchen island and dining bench” (architect Sarah Henry).

The wall of open steel shelving along the length of the kitchen is visually appealing. A great way to display and storage beautiful kitchen accessories and tableware. The designers of Studio Four used the materials and space available in a creative and practical way. The kitchen island extends into a dining table (surrounded by the Elbow dinning chairs by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Sons). The storage cabinets at bench level also makes the space look bigger. The floors, kitchen island and stools were custom made. I love the well thought out use of materials and the attention to details in this aesthetic yet very inviting interior.





The kitchen view from outside, accessible via sliding doors. The outdoor dining area is provided with sturdy concrete pavers, a wooden garden table including a bench and a white painted brick exterior wall. Seems perfect for long and cozy days.

Giveaway I Share What I See print





Giveaway I Share What I See print

Let’s start January with a little present from me to you. Just because I feel like it.. More than a year after I started blogging in 2010 I created a blog slogan. This was the beginning of the quote as it is today. For me it represents the essence of blogging. Photography is part of my daily life now, for both fun and work. Capturing special and everyday moments to develop an eye for beautiful details, light and shapes. And, of course, share it with you on this blog and via Instagram. Last year I decided to make a analog version of these words. The print is 42 centimeters high and 29,5 centimeters wide. Made of 300 mg recycled  paper.


How to win?

All you have to do is leave a comment in the section below. Within one week I will  randomly choose 3 winners for the ‘I Share What I See’ print (without a frame). The winners will be contacted via email. Good luck!

Architecture Vipp Shelter





Architecture Vipp Shelter

In one word.. wow. Regular readers know that I love architecture and design, especially when it’s Scandinavian made. This 55 square meter shelter made of galvanized steel designed by the Danish brand Vipp stole my heart. Don’t we all dream of a place like this? To escape from everyday life now and then, far hidden in the Nordic woods. Back to (design) basics with sliding glass doors and skylight windows to enjoy the view both day and night. The shelter consists of a large kitchen with a dining and living area, separate bathroom and a loft area. Fully equipped with – naturally – a Vipp kitchen, bathroom and home accessories. Inside the wall and ceilings are fitted with wool felt covered plywood panels to stay warm on winter days.

“There is plenty of amazing architecture out there, but we wanted to conceive something different rooted in who we are. So we used our 75 years of experience with steel processing to craft an escape in the form of a prefabricated object designed down to the last detail, where the only choice left to the customer, is where to put it”. (Morten Bo Jensen, chief designer)

The first prefabricated shelter is located somewhere on a still secret location in the nature of Sweden. The Vipp shelter is however intended for locations anywhere in the world. No need to worry about colours, materials or kitchen modules. Everything is chosen on beforehand, leave that up to Vipp!
