Design | SIMON&ME Tote Bag

If you are looking for a gift for your love, a good friend, your brother or father (or maybe for yourself). Stop searching, SIMON&ME is the place to be. Their store is located in the Kreuzberg district, Berlin. But their products are also available online

The 101 Linen Tote Bag is one of my favorite designs. It’s basic, beautiful and functional. Made from heavy coated high quality linen with a small inside pocket and leather straps. I love the pure and simple design. The perfect everyday bag for the modern and conscious gentleman as mentioned on the site. But I can assure you, it’s perfect for both men and women.. Can’t wait to visit the SIMON&ME Local store next time I’m in Berlin!

Creating Experiences through Lasting Design

SIMON&ME and its underlying philosophy stand for perpetual design and modern aesthetics. Our approach to design strips away superfluous embellishments, emphasising the very core of a product and unveiling our minimalist signature. We believe that there is nothing greater than the satisfaction of possessing a cherished piece that simply lasts. And knowing that the product you are holding is the result of craftsmanship and passion. Following this clear aesthetic vision, each piece is designed and developed from scratch in Berlin. The outcome, a product that is made to fit our lives, longer than a seasonal fling and stronger than a temporary trend.

Sunday Love | Bed Linen by Norm Architects

This weekend Saturday Love became a Sunday Love blogpost. The last few weeks were lovely but busy. The days were filled with gatherings, live blogging, photography assignments and an inspiring Meet the Blogger event in Amsterdam. So this morning I took it slow: breakfast in bed, tea and internet.

And today I fell in love with the new MENU bed linen GoodNorm designed by NORM Architects. Made of washed cotton sateen these textiles seem so soft and comfortable. In beautiful powdered pastels. One side of the bed linen is plain colored while the other has fine small graphic patterns and details.

On my wish list for this winter.. Wish you a nice Sunday!

Woonbeurs Amsterdam | It’s all in the details

Woonbeurs Amsterdam | It’s all in the details

Today I scrolled through my iphone pictures, a way to enjoy the Woonbeurs Amsterdam again. Last wednesday I had a great day at the Bloggerscafé including a speed styling session. On friday the chief editor of vtwonen invited a group of (inter)national bloggers in their home and café for a meet and greet.

Inspiration Homes

What I enjoyed the most of this Dutch living event? The inspiration homes of vtwonen and 101 Woonideeën. Both special this year because vtwonen is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary. And – unfortunately - 101 Woonideeën presented their home at the Woonbeurs for the last time. Two very different spaces. One with warm, dark tones and an impressive black kitchen wall. The other basic white with bright color accents. In both homes I focussed on the beautiful details. In styling, visuals, graphics, typography and shapes.

Amsterdam | Design Dinner at Pistache

Amsterdam | Design Dinner at Pistache

Last friday I had the pleasure to attend a design dinner hosted by Studio Pistache in the heart of Amsterdam. A great industrial location meant for special events and gatherings. But you can also visit their wood stove pizzeria. The diner was organized by Bloggers Tour United with Bungalow5, Vosgesparis, Happy Interior Blog, La Masion d’Anna G., Varpunen, Hviit, Walnut Grey Design and Facing North With Gracia. It was lovely to meet all the attendees in person. It was a truly inspiring evening with nice and valuable conversations. Love this part of my blog journey: getting to know people both on- and offline.

The styling looked lovely with tableware by Thuesen Jensen, Fatboy concrete seats, candlelight by Skandinavisk and music from fashionable Libratone speakers.

Architecture | mA-style Architects

mA-Style is a Japanese interior and architectural design firm. They are the creators of this beautiful residence. Meant as a young couples home located next to a main house. The main house is a traditional Japanese home, often seen in rural areas. A big space with many large rooms for family and friends to get together. This living extension offers some additional privacy while the basic functions for living are in the main house. This residence has many similarities with Scandinavian design: light and bright, minimal and functional with attention to the details. I find the use of white walls in combination with the timber accessories very appealing. And I just love the plywood ceiling.

Bloggerscafé | Speed Styling

Yesterday Dutch living event De Woonbeurs in Amsterdam was my blog office for one day. A big table in the Design City hall filled with enthusiastic fellow bloggers. Besides blogging there was a lot of catching up. And plans were made for a speed styling shoot in a photo studio near the press room. For Desiree - Vosgesparis – and me it was clear: a combination of black and white, illustration, nature, Dutch and Scandinavian design. We foraged the fair in search for beautiful miniature items. We found them at vtwonen, Basiclabel, Ogreen Plants and 101 Woonideeën.

More photo’s and inspiration about De Woonbeurs coming up soon!

Design | Saana ja Olli

In my search for new carpet inspiration I found the Koko iäksi (For the Whole Life) designed by Saana ja Olli for Mum’s. Saana ja Olli is a designer couple and company from Turku, Finland. In their work they value rectitude, timelessness and a human touch.

The idea was to design a carpet that would accompany it’s owner in all changing situations and environments in life. The production takes place at the Bhadohi area of India and is simply fair: the weaver receives 50% of the wholesale price of every carpet and other 50% goes to running the weaving co-op.

I was already a fan of their print pillow Maailman, inspired by old myths and the rich Finnish wall rug tradition. This woolen black and white carpet would fit in beautifully.
