In March I was very enthusiastic about the new Ikea Home Smart collection. A range of interior products with a built-in charger. Like a small bed side table, a desk lamp, charging stations and pads. I have a weakness for gadgets and I also love a good design. So this charging pad seemed like a very good match. Couldn’t wait to test the wooden pad called Nordmärke.
During Salone del Mobile last week, I visited the Fritz Hansen apartment in central Milan, located in the lively Brera area. The apartment itself was worth a visit: a beautiful space with detailed walls, glass and steel. But furnished and styled by this Danish brand made it absolutely wonderful.
This chair caught my attention on Pinterest, still a great source to discover new and existing interior design. The Sharky Stool by Kristalia was created by Neuland. A design award winning duo from Germany. The Sharky Stool comes in two sizes with seats in different shapes. The high stool replicates the seat of the chair and becomes a comfortable bar stool. Whereas the low stool has a different seat, shortened for a more harmonious overall effect.
This weekend I’m working on several deadlines. Writing, photography and styling, turning my living room into a studio. In between I run my 10K and enjoy today’s sunny weather. And – not least – I’m preparing my trip to the Salone del Mobile in Milan next week. Can’t wait to explore the city and get inspired. Coming weeks I’ll share my Milan design finds and highlights with you, here on beeldSTEIL. Meanwhile you can follow the sneak peeks on my Instagram account. Enjoy your Sunday!
The green vibe in interior is still going strong and I can’t get enough. And with spring and summer in prospect this is the perfect theme to use as an inspiration for my styling of the Villa ArenA window display. Villa ArenA is a big interior mall located in Amsterdam. From the end of April I have a whole window display at my disposal to decorate and photograph. So last week I visited all the varied interior and home decoration stores to choose my favourites.
The best of both worlds: design and music. Love the minimalistic and unique form of this portable speaker. Every Cone comes with 30 million songs plus radio stations and podcasts. It uses a leading voice recognition technology to take your requests. It understands artists, radio stations, albums and songs. So when you know exactly what you want to hear, just ask!
Currently, I’m working on a portfolio site. I started it at the end of last year and it’s about time I finish it and put it online soon. Looking forward to showing it to you. It takes a lot of work to go through all my pictures. The fun part is that it brings back good memories.
