Enter the room

Since a few years I moved to a small city apartment in my hometown Utrecht, a charming old town in the middle of The Netherlands. Within cycling distance of the old city center and canals. I don’t mind living small, it’s cozy and makes you more creative about the interior. I use different accessories and I have a few good basics like a String cabinet, a big wooden Thonet table and the Togo lounge chair. All my furniture is easy to move. Not only because I like to make changes. It’s also because I use my home for working and photography projects. 

A well-known and easy way to make a room look bigger is the use of a mirror. It provides more depth and it reflects the light. With this mirror, you’d love to enter any room. The Enter mirror is a minimal and classic design, the result of a collaboration between New York-based Søren Rose Studio and Danish - Copenhagen based - Ferm Living. Founded bij Trine Andersen in 2005. Her brand started with wallpaper (more on this on the blog soon) and is now one of the best known Danish interior design brands.


Most of my walls are colored in a grey, beige or anthracite tone. I started with one wall in a dark color in my bedroom. Gradually all walls turned dark. The room is very bright so I took the risk. It turned out very well. I love the warm and cozy feeling, it even makes me sleep better. 

The Enter mirror is a combination of powder-coated steel, mirror glass and leather. In particular the leather detail provides the mirror character, it distinguishes from regular mirrors. I like the brown leather strap on the dark wall in combination with the wooden shelves of the String Pocket. The mirror comes in small and large. With brown and black leather. I choose the small version to add a striking detail on the wall.

Brokis Muffin Tea Light Holder

Days are slowly getting longer, Spring is on its way. But there is always time to light a candle. Especially when it’s as beautiful as the Brokis Muffin Tea Light Candle Holder. You probably know Brokis from their glass lamps, the Muffin collection. A completely new look at lamp design in my opinion. 

The Brokis Muffin Tea Light Holder is a design by Lucie Koldova and Dan Yeffet. Born from the idea of combining wood with a mouth-blown glass top. As an extension to the Muffin lamp series, the foundation of the lightning brand Brokis. What I like is the glass on top of the wooden base which provides an atmospheric light. The light flows into the room with various tones and shades. Any imperfections in the glass such as minimal air bubbles or color differences arise from the traditional working method with which the Muffin candle holder is created. It makes every candle unique and special.

The total design is manufactured in the Czech Republic which exudes quality and craftsmanship. The smokey grey glass diffuser and wooden base of the tea light holder are two separate elements. It makes it possible to easily put a tea light in the base and then place the glass cap over it. The wooden base is available in oak or walnut. I choose the walnut version because of its warm look in combination with the smokey grey. 

Brokis was founded in 2006 bij Czech entrepreneur and engineer Jan Rabell. Today Brokis designs and produces beautiful lamps in all shapes and sizes. Mostly hand-blown glass combined with pure materials such as wood and metal. A Muffin lamp is out of my reach, so I am very glad to enjoy the tea light version!
