United Beach Huts of Bournemouth

H

i guys! I’ve been a bit awol lately, but for a good reason. I did the creative direction and styling for the Welcome Days of Antwerp based PR agency OONA. I’ve already shared a peek on instagram & facebook but will post more on the blog later. For now I’m taking you back to Bournemouth, where I made a short stop when I went on a factory visit with Farrow & Ball earlier this fall. After breakfast I went exploring in the picturesque beach town and bumped into a rainbow of beach huts. It was truly enchanting in the misty september weather and I hope my pictures do the moment justice. Hope you’re having a lovely week!

DIY Easy Reupholstered Chairs

By 0 0

DIY Easy reupholstered chairs Once upon a time I bought a set of thrifted chairs. I really liked the shape but disliked the color, but thought that I could do something about that one day. As always, I considered just painting the surface, but a few clawing cat paws later painting the faux leather was no longer an option.

Finding the right fabric was a bigger challenge than expected, but when I was over at Dille & Kamille for my bedroom restyling, I discovered the perfect shade of pink, in a table cloth! As their table cloths are made from thick cotton, I quickly realized this would definitely work. Just over €20 well spent to give my vintage chairs a modern look.

Y

ou guys, big news! Last thursday I was in London to attend the Amara Interior Blog awards, and I am so very proud and honored to say I won in my category “Best European Interiors Blog”. I was nominated alongside My Scandinavian Home, Gucki, Minoop and fellow Belgian Greet from Belgian Pearls who I’ve gotten to know because of the awards (Thanks Amara!). I think I can’t quite believe it still, because October has been a bit of a whirlwind for me and somehow this all happened in a big haze.

Home Renovation: Bedroom Reveal + 5 tips to make your bedroom fall ready

H

i guys, it’s been super busy over here, so I’m happy I have the chance to drop in for a lengthier post on the home renovation front, one that’s alllll about our bedroom in collaboration with Dille & Kamille!

If you follow me on instagram you’ve maybe seen that I’ve spent 3 days in Amsterdam with W hotels (more on that later). Later this month I’ll be going to London, France and maybe even Milan. I’ve been working on and planning some really lovely projects so definitely exciting times over here.

Home Renovation: Bedroom Reveal + 5 tips to make your bedroom fall ready

Back to the bedroom! I’ve teamed up with Dille & Kamille for a complete restyling of our tiny but cozy bedroom. As you maybe remember from this post, I initially wanted to create an all white space, but i quickly got a bit bored and wanted more colour so I decided to change things up. The new plan was to create more harmony with the pink closet, because you see the room from our bedroom. The first step was building my own bed (DIY to come) this mini makeover of my vanity, and then I reupholstered a set of vintage chairs with a dusty pink fabric that matches the closet walls perfectly (also coming up). You may remember the “headboard” as this DIY project I did two years ago. Dille & Kamille provided me with the finishing touches and voila, here we are! A more grown up bedroom that no longer has just a mattress  on the floor, and is completely fall ready!

Young Creatives: Melanie Van Dooren

‘ve been wanting to introduce you to my friend Melanie for a while now. She’s one of the most radiant and positive people I know, and I find her a true inspiration so I really wanted to share her story with you. Plus she lives in this huge appartment in Antwerp with the sweetest nursery!
Melanie and I met when she moved into my student house her first year of college and we hit it off right away. She also studied communications so we had a lot of the same classes, and even ended up studying abroad in Barcelona together, where we also shared a flat. She’s actually the person I’ve lived with the longest apart from my boyfriend and parents. I could show you some hilarious photo’s from our student years studying for our most hated course (ICT) in our PJs and greasy hair with the help of a bucket of M&Ms (but I won’t!).
Since we became actual proper adults, Melanie has worked in TV production, moved to Brazil for a year with her lovely boyfriend Hendrik and had the cutest baby named Maurice. She also hit a rough patch last year and decided to take her life into her own hands and change things up. Melanie already started learning jewelry design in Brazil, but now she’s back in Belgium, and recently launched a brand under her own name: Melanie Van Dooren. I couldn’t be prouder of her living life on her own terms, so let me show you why I love this girl!

Behind the scenes at Farrow & Ball

I

f there’s one thing my inner geek loves it’s a factory visit. So when Farrow & Ball invited me to visit their HQ in Dorset I was super excited! This mini trip to the UK on my own consisted of an afternoon in London, a night in Bournemouth and an exciting day with fellow bloggers from all over the world in Wimborne, the home of Farrow & Ball. The reason for this visit was to celebrate Farrow & Ball’s 70 year anniversary and the launch of their new wallpapers, inspired by the 1940s.

Vietnam Photo Diary // Hoi An

Vietnam Photo Diary // Hoi An

I

‘ve been holding off on posting my pictures of Vietnam simply because there are just tooooo many. So I’ve decided to spread the content over multiple posts so you guys don’t drown in picture overload and at the same time I’ve published the details and addresses on the Epic Guide. I’m kicking things off with my picture diary of Hoi An. Contrary to popular opinion, this was actually our least favorite stop in Vietnam. We had high expectations because we heard only wonderful things, but I think we were there at an unfortunate time as it was crazy crowded with tourists, up to the point that it became annoying. Nonetheless, there was a lot of visual yummyness going on. See for yourself!

The Robey by Nicolas Schuybroek and Marc Merckx

ver since I spotted the first images in August I’ve been very interested in seeing more of The Robey Hotel, a Chicago based boutique hotel that opens in the fall and was designed by fellow Belgians Nicolas Schuybroek and Marc Merckx. The Robey is situated in a 1929 Art Deco triangular shaped building called  the Northwest Tower, and has been undergoing the transformation from office space to hotel for the past few years.
